Victor "The Predictor" Cozzetti


Janero in Friday’s finale has been wasting a few dollars with open company. Today, it’s a condition race at a lower level with leading rider Leslie Mawing. I’d single on at least one Pick Five ticket.


Strawberry Dawn won opening week like a good thing. She's been facing
tougher since. Today in Race 8, she should find these to be much easier with an
opportunity to end the meet the way she started.


Was going to chase Three Olives Later earlier but scratched to go here,
combination "Best Bet" "Trip Play"………….She can beat the chalk, much
better post.
