Group of 6-9yo hard-hitters, featuring the likes of Honorable Duty, Harlan Punch and Hawaakom, face off versus some 4-5yo’s that look like they’re still developing. Today might be the opportunity to get tactical Silver Dust in a breakthrough performance..

11th: Silverbulletday, 3yo-F, 1m-70y (P4, P3, DD)

Grandaria (9-2) will need to take another forward step to beat favored Needs Supervision (3-1) and Liora (5-2), but she’s closed into slow paces in her wins and should get a ground-saving behind-the-speed trip here. Eddie Kenneally sent Grandaria’s 2nd dam Baghdaria out for the SBD title in 2006, run at Louisiana Downs that year because of Katrina’s damage to Fair Grounds..

Best Value: #2 Grandaria 9-2 3rd
Next Best: #5 Needs Supervision 3-1 WON ($7.00)
Exotics Use: #4 Liora 5-2 4th
Super Add: #7 Mandy Blue 9-2 6th

SCR #4 Mr. Money, #14 Admire, #15 West Texas..

Fun next step on the Road to the Louisiana Derby with 12 going postward including 6 with authentic stakes credentials. We may never get the 15-1 we had in the agonizing miss in the KY Jockey Club, but Plus Que Parfait may still be $8-10 in this bulky field. War of Will comes back off the first time main track MDN win. Tacket is 2/2 over the strip and at the trip and beat impressive Thursday winner Owendale (93 Beyer) last out. 12/22 MDN winner Chase the Ghost moved forward for Dallas Stewart when sent around 2 turns and should be a nice exotics booster with another forward move..

Most Likely: #12 Plus Que Parfait 9-2 5th
Next Best: #8 War of Will 6-1 WON ($5.20)
Exotics Use: #3 Tackett 6-1 9th
Super Add: #10 Chase the Ghost 12-1 6th
