Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

 FOR SUNDAY, APRIL 19 AT BALMORAL

Best Bet: Bull Investor (9th race)

First Post—7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND/CLMG $4,000, NW $1,150 LAST 5, PURSE $2,300:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)        ODDS  LAST 3

3  L!Na Zdrowie, L. Finn  3-2  5 4 7

5  Lover’s Holiday, De. Magee  7-2  5 5 5

1  L-Pierce My Heart, R. Warren  4-1  7 6 2

6  L-Glitter Jolt, Carpenter  9-2  4 4 3

7  L-Sand Taryn, Husted  6-1  5 4 5 

4  L-Red Lace Skivvies, Oosting  15-1  6 7 6

NA ZDROWIE was stuck inside at Maywood with pace and got into high gear much too late. LOVERS HOLIDAY is getting sharper and looks like a threat tonight. PIERCE MY HEART was too far back. That shouldn’t be a problem with the move to the pole position.

SECOND: TROT, COND, NW 2 OR 3 RACES, PURSE $4,200:

5  L!Meabh, Oosting  2-1  *4 *2 *1

2  +Herbiesflashofgold, P. Curtin  5-2  *1 1 5

6  !Bi Polar Rose, Seekman  7-2  1 3 3
4  L+Parole Officer, De Long  6-1  5 7 3

3  L+A Local Band, Smolin  6-1  4 4 *4

1  +Agent Booth, Ri. Finn  6-1  2 5 5

MEABH found the fractions too quick and weakened. Filly may not give way tonight. HERBIESFLASHOFGOLD is 2-for-2 as a 3-year-old and is in a very good spot to make another visit to the winner’s circle. BI POLAR ROSE last year’s Lady Lincoln Land champion. Filly prepped well for her initial second season start.

THIRD: PACE, CLMG $4,000, F & M, PURSE $2,500:

4  L-Seekin For Glamour, Seekman  5-2  1 3 2

6  L!Hotmones, Wilfong  4-1  5 8 7

2  +Dontmesswithangel, T. Warren  3-1  *1 *1 6

5  L-Moon Bay Dancer, Leonard  9-2  2 *3 2

7  L-Jenjen, R. Warren  6-1  2 3 6

3  L-It’s A Sham, T. Curtin  8-1  6 6 1

1  L+Thedayyouhavemade, Smolin  10-1  2 7 8

SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR finds another soft spot tonight and can win right back.. HOTMONES is back on the track where she has prevailed. Mare may be zipping out tonight. DONTMESSWITHANGEL is in her season best form and might handle this hike.

FOURTH: TROT, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, PURSE $3,500:

5  L!My Funky Farkle, Smolin  2-1  3 3 8

6  LL!Here’s Johnny, Brink  3-1  5 9 *1

4  L-Mayfair Sophie, De. Magee  4-1  5 8 2

2  !Tater Twister, Leonard  9-2  2 6 7

3  L!KK’s Bandit, Seekman  5-1  5 8 7

1  L!Powerful Commander, Oosting  6-1  8 6 4

MY FUNKY FARKLE gets away from the gate well and is back down where she got her season win. HERE’S JOHNNY owns a 1:55.3 lifetime mark. He’s in soft for his first start since last summer. MAYFAIR SOPHIE can show speed when the mare stays flat.

FIFTH: PACE, COND, NW 2 OF 3 RACES, F & M, PURSE $4,200:

4  L!Galley Wench, T. Warren  8-5  3 7 *3

6  L!Duneside Perttie, Smolin  9-5  4 3 *2

5  L-Nitty Gritty, Leonard  5-1  9 2 6

2  L+Blueridge Adilene, Oosting  6-1  2 4 7

7  L-Perched On Top, De. Magee  12-1  8 5 *3

3  +BB Tyrichess, Carpenter  12-1  3 4 3

1  L+Band In My Bikini, De Long  15-1  3 1 4

GALLEY WENCH is out of an ICF filly stake and into a winnable situation tonight. DUNESIDE PERTTIE competed in the same race as the above. Has been leaving with Oosting and might tonight. NITTY GRITTY is a possibility to rally in time with the cover she lacked.

SIXTH: PACE, CLMG HANDICAP, $6,000-$8,000, F & M, PURSE $3,500:

6  Jovanna, Leonard  5-2  1 5 4

1  L-Western Boudoir, Seekman  3-1  2 1 3

3  Soft Velvet, T. Curtin  4-1  3 *2 6

7  L!Park Lane Crystal, R. Warren  7-2  3 2 7

4  L-Babyshoebuyer, Smolin  6-1  5 *1 1

2  L-Casino Comp, Beyer  8-1  4 4 2

5  L+Always Talking, Husted  15-1  4 6 7

JOVANNA is a steady contender at this class and may rally in time again. WESTERN COUDOIR could power her way past again and this time carry her speed to the wire. SOFT VELVET is often it he gimmicks but still looking for her initial win of the year.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,800:

4  L-If I Didn’t Dream, T. Warren  3-2  1 1 6

6  L-Miriam’s Jet, Leonard  2-1  *2 3 *5

3  L-One Jazzy Lady, Seekman  5-2  1 *4 2

2  L-Sammi’s Song, Oosting  12-1  5 7 7

5  L!Towne Believer, RS Finn  12-1  9 4 5

1  L-I’m Telling You, Bastie  12-1  7 3 1

IF I DIDN’T DREAM has won her last three races with Warren and last pair at tonight’s level. MIRIAM’S JET hasn’t been far off from the above and may get revenge this time. ONE JAZZY LADY could have her way on the front again and hold off another field.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,700:

6  !Sporty Project, P. Curtin  3-2  6 2 4

4  Simply Burbon, RS Finn  2-1  2 5 3

8  L-Mykindpariness, T. Curtin  7-2  3 4 6

5  Foxy Blue, Smolin  12-1  4 2 4

3  +Sneacret Hanover, Seekman  15-1  5 1 5

7  L-May Third, Wilfong  15-1  6 3 3

2  +Real Shelia, Oosting  15-1  8 x x

1  L-Halo Dali, Halo Dali  15-1  4 9 8

SPORTY PROJECT out f a ICF 3-year-old filly stake and into a very winnable spot. SIMPLY BURBON shifts back to her home track after dropping a heartbreaker. Big shot here. MYKINDAPRINCESS may follow-up live cover so respect her chances.

NINTH: TROT, COND, NW 1 (F & M 2), PURSE $3,400:

3  +Bull Investor, Oosting  6-5  3 x x

6  Midnight Interlude, T. Curtin  3-1  *8 *5 *3

5  !Southern Special, Carpenter  8-1  3 4 7

9  BB Whistle, Leonard  9-2  3 3 6

8  LC’snmotion, Brink  15-1 3 6 1

4  Hustlin Cougar, Oosting  15-1  7 4 5

7  +E L Elian, Oosting  20-1  5 7 4

1  L-Steel Blue Sally, De. Magee  25-1  6 6 7

2  Charming Macie, Searle  25-1  4 9 9

10  Omygoodness, Beyer  30-1  9 6 4

BULL INVESTOR is a well-regarded 3-year-old first time starter. Bought for $62,000 and he is American National eligible. MIDNIGHT INTERLUDE is a danger if she can stay flat for a change. SOUTHERN SPECIAL raced improved. She’s prepping for ICF stake.

TENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $2,500:

5  L!One Last Chance, Oosting  8-5  6 4 6

7  L+Awesome Abe, Leonard  5-2  *1 3 3

9  L+Rocket Dog, De Long  9-2  3 1 4

2  L+Larry’s Place, Seekman  8-1  1 5 6

1  L!Family Spirit N, Smolin  12-1  8 8 3

3  L+Pure Addiction, R. Warren  15-1  6 8 6

8  L+Midnight Destroyer, Longo  20-1  7 6 3

6  L+Nip Pan Tick, Beyer  25-1  6 7 4

4  L-LD’s Dash, P. Curtin  30-1  6 5 10

10  L-Best Class, P. Curtin  25-1  7 8 6

ONE LAST CHANCE looks to be in cheap enough where a well-timed move can win it. AWESOME ABE whipped easier but that could help this veteran’s confidence level. The main threat. ROCKET DOG may also land in these gimmicks.
