Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

 FOR SUNDAY, MARCH 1 AT BALMORAL

Best Bet: Pretty Place (6th race)

First Post—7:10 pm

FIRST: TROT, COND, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, PURSE $3,700:

HORSE (DRIVER)    ODDS  LAST 3

1a  Frontier Pine Bow, Leonard  2-1  *8 *1 *1

7  L-Parole Officer, P. Curtin  5-2  *1 *6 2

3  Midnight Interlude, T. Curtin  3-1  2 2 6

2  Allstar Josh, Jy. Seekman  6-1  3 3 6

4  Meabh, De Long  8-1  1 4 8

5  +Divinely Floozy, T. Curtin  10-1  3 3 x

1  Pizzalcious, Hiteman  2-1  5 4 4

6  L-Riverside Gold, De. Magee  15-1  4 6 5

FRONTIER PINE BOW broke in first start back after the winter break. Filly could make amends. PAROLE OFFICER a winner despite a not-so-east trip and could be leaving again. MIDNIGHT INTERLUDE is coming along well and looks like a contender.

SECOND: PACE, COND, NW 2 OR 3 RACES, F & M, PURSE $4,200:

1  L+Missiana, R. Warren  9-5  1 5 5

5  Eva Bella, Oosting  2-1  4 3 *4

3  LL!Lyrics Fall, Smolin  3-1  4 8 4

6  L-Perched On Top, De. Magee  5-1  4 5 4

4  Nitty Gritty, Hiteman  12-1  3 7 7

2  Casimir Ms Luck, P. Curtin  12-1  5 5 8

MISSIANA won rather easily and against a comparable field. EVA BELLA needed last week’s start and looks like a danger tonight. LYRICS FALL showed ability as a 2-year-old. See how she’s bet.

THIRD: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, PURSE $2,500:

7  Taruke, P. Curtin  7-2  2 4 6

3  L-Isie Ivy, R. Warren  3-1  4 5 2

5  Diamond Desire Ivy, T. Curtin  4-1  3 3 5

4  Shiftanextgear, Carpenter  9-2  5 6 2

2  L-Mr Carter, Beard  6-1  5 3 9

1  Just Do It Jesse, Smolin  6-1  6 7 10

8  L-Duneside Louie, De. Magee  15-1  3 8 7

6  L-Bingo Prince, Beyer  15-1  7 8 5

TARUKE shits over from Maywood where he had a big effort from its second tier. ISIE IVY another Maywood invader who fits here and is long overdue. DIAMOND DESIRE IVY can go out and get another trip near the front and maybe do more with it.

FOURTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, F & M, PURSE $3,000:

1a  Jovanna, Leonard  2-1  2 8 1

2  L-Babyshoebuyer, Oosting  5-2  6 6 *2

4  Soft Velvet, T. Curtin  3-1  3 2 3

1  Our Miss Special, T. Warren  2-1  4 7 6

5  L+Im A Sand Blaster, Seekman  6-1  6 8 5

3  L-Peacelovepace, Wilfong 6-1  8 5 7

6  L-Western Boudoir, De Long  15-1  5 4 5

7  L-Mearl Finn, RS Finn  15-1  6 8 1

JOVANNA had too much ground to make up. Maybe she’ll arrive in time tonight. BABYSHOEBUYER hurt by some tough trips. A favorable one might see her have success. SOFT VELVET got stuck inside. Overdue mare should be considered.

FIFTH: TROT, COND, NW $4,000 LAST 5, PURSE $5,400:

8  l!Ants Iner Pants, Anderson  5-2  4 4 5

4  L!Repeat Your ABC’s, Wilfong  3-1  3 6 *2

7  L-Nessie’s Boy, Carpenter  5-1  *2 7 2

1  Lock And Go, Leonard  10-1  4 4 3

5  L-Mayfair Sophie, P. Curtin  6-1  6 3 1

6  L-Itz Alive, Hiteman  8-1  7 1 2

9  Hot Rod Riley Mae, Oosting  12-1  3 7 4

2  L-KK’s Bandit, T. Curtin  15-1  5 5 6

3  L-Powerful Commander, Smolin  15-1  8 1 *7

ANTS INER PANTS is out of “Winner’s Over” and into a possible winning spot tonight. REEPAT YOUR ABC’S takes the same drop and is another to be respected in here. NESSIE’S BOY is often a player at this class. Can leave.

SIXTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5. F & M, PURSE $3,500:

1  L!Pretty Place, Oosting  3-2  4 7 8

2  Parklane Sparkle, Wilfong  3-1  *1 *1 5

5  L!Fox Valley Shiver, Hiteman  4-1  6 6 6

3  L-Mind Eraser, Smolin  9-2  4 *3 2

4  L!Phobic Princess, T. Warren  10-1  7 5 7

7  L-Fox Valley Ruby, Leonard  12-1  3 7 7

6  L-Metis Blue Chip, Carpenter  15-1  6 9 3

PRETTY PLACE is in cheap and drew well to boot. PARKLANE SPARKLE in top form but does take on better. Catch her. FOX VALLEY SHIVER is a possibility with this drop.

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

7  Gabby Rei, De Long  2-1  *2 3 4

1  L-If I Didn’t Dream, Leonard  5-2  3 2 1

6  L-Onelesslonelygirl, Hiteman  7-2  4 3 1

8  L-Princess Joventina, De. Magee  8-1  4 6 6

2  L-Miriam’s Jet, Carpenter  8-1  7 4 8

4  L-Treat For My Sweet, Smolin  12-1  8 5 3

3  L-Msrichstyle, Wilfong  15-1  8 5 3

5  L-Sammi’s Song, Oosting  15-1  6 5 10

1a  L-Jenna W Rivndel, Anderson  5-2  7 7 7

GABBY REI could be another good effort from nailing down an overdue win. IF I DIDN’T DREAM could be in good striking position and sweep past for her initial season victory. ONELESSLONELYGIRL is back on the track where she had recent success.

EIGHTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $2,600:

5  L-Justlivinthedream, Widger  4-1  6 3 2

6  L-Jo Jo Spur, P. Curtin  3-1  4 *1 4

7  L-Star Chaser, T. Warren  7-2  1 6 3

8  L-Bet On Him, R. Warren  6-1  *3 *10 1

1  L-CD’s Ideal, T. Curtin  8-1  2 7 3

4  L+Camwiser, Oosting  8-1  *5 *3 7

9  L-Awesome Abe, Leonard  10-1  2 4 6

2  L!Family Spirit N, Smolin  12-1  8 2 6

3  L!Cry For Cash, M. Finn  15-1  9 7 9

JUSTLIVINTHEDREAM couldn’t get out. He might at the right time tonight and at a fair price. JO JO SPUR may follow-up the above and out close her and others. STAR CHASER may go right to the top again and hold on again like he did as our $16.20 “price shot” last weekend.

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

2  L-Pip’s Quatro, Seekman  3-1  *8 7 7

3  L-Really Lucky, De. Magee  7-2  7 3 5

4  !Triggerhappy Hero, Leonard  9-2  7 4 1

5  L-Colefederate, Anderson  4-1  1 4 3

8  L-Larry’s Place, Oosting  8-1  5 9 6

1  L!Holy McMoses, Hiteman  8-1  8 6 3

7  L-Richess Nestor, P. Curtin  12-1 3x 6 5

6  L!LD’s Dash, Smolin  15-1  10 10 9

9  L-Doc Telladay, T. Curtin  20-1  4 7 4

PIP’S QUATRO broke going full speed into Maywood’s first turn. Beaten choice might make amends here. REALLY LUCKY raced wide through three turns in a big effort at Maywood. He’s a danger. TRIGGERHAPPY HERO drops into a possible winning spot tonight.

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

4  La Semana Hanover, T. Warren  3-1  2 3 *3

6  L-LCB Sandy, Coleman  7-2  4 2 3

3  L-Moon Say Dancer, Leonard  4-1  *3 1 4

8  L-Na Zdrowie, Anderson  9-2  6 *2 6

5  L-Aubsession, T. Curtin  5-1  1 *8 3

2  Lovers Holiday, Seekman  12-1  2 6 6

7  L-WH Carmen, Oosting  12-1  3 5 6

9  L+Miss Rich Britches, P. Curtin  15-1  7 3 7

1  L+Red Lace Skivvies, RS Finn  25-1  8 8 9

LA SEMANA HANOVER likely races up-close again but maybe this time she comes out on top. LCB SANDY finished strong but has to avoid being too far behind again. MOON BAY DANCER had to go 3-wide in final turn to get past a tiring horse. She also has a big shot.
