Another great weekend of racing is upon us and with Live Trivia on Friday evening, and stellar food and drink specials, and second chance drawings, on Saturday night, we have a little something for everyone at bestbet Orange Park.
Top grade races over 550 and 660 adore the weekend from Friday evening all the way through to Sunday matinee. Speaking of Sunday, don’t forget about our special Father’s Day Buffet with loads of goodies from breakfast to lunch all in one place.
Below we will look over the races, try to give you some insight, and hopefully help you cash some tickets here at bestbet Orange Park.
Race 7 on the card will be all about the front end. Pat C Look See and Gs Kristen are going to be locked up in a head to head battle for the duration of this event. From the box to wire it will be a battle royal that will come down to just who wants it more in the stretch. Both will be challenged throughout by solid grade A competitor Ww’s Work Flow and the newcomer Mega Edile. (4-2-3-6)
Race 10 is the first half of the forced out Twin-Tri, which is chalked full of talent. Tough to pick against Ww’s Dust Me Off who has won 4 of his last 5 races, including 3 in grade A, so I won’t, especially from a great rail post. But don’t count out the late driving Mega Bacilo, or posted up always trying Braska Nymph, or even the strong closing 4th place finisher in the JGR Puppy Stakes Gs Tex. (2-3-7-6)
Donnybrook time in the 11th on the card and there is a herd battling from the start in order to get the lead and the win in this effort. Red hot Ww Head First leads the pack with back to back wins and 3 in her last 4 starts. She will be pressed by rising star Kay Outlaw who has 4 wins in her last 6 efforts, including a pair in grade A. Impressive puppy, 5 wins and 8 Q’s in 13 starts, Ww’s Gypsy will be in the mix throughout and don’t count out veteran Kiowa Mat Marty either. Off the stakes and a grade A win last time out, he is back on his game. (3-8-2-4)
Over to 660 for the 15th race and another great field of greyhounds to select from. Gotta love to see Gs Cosmo back on track with a 4 quinielas and two wins in his last 5 races. He has been breaking better, and late, he is a big time threat. Looking for revenge here, he still might have to catch Pawsox Delgado to get things done tonight. Delgado is knocking them out of the park with 4 wins in 5 starts, but he must break in order to contend as the lead is going to get crowded with solid grade A contenders Cayenne Madonna and Ww’s Sweetie. (4-3-7-2)
In the matinee the feature races comes in the 11th on the card and highlights some of the best youngsters at the racetrack. Phemon Ww’s Ignite Fire has the pilot light lit again after a strong grade B win in her last effort. She will be challenged early by the speed ship in Mega Biscay and D’Bulls Tyvek and in the stretch everyone is going to have to keep an eye out for the Jet City Woman and her afterburner type effort. (5-2-8-4)
Saturday evening we start off in the 7th race and look at a puppy who has figured it all out! My Baby Belle might just be the hottest running greyhound at the racetrack. She has won 3 of 4 and been in the quiniela in 5 straight trips. That 30.39 clocking was no joke! She is the one to beat here. Trying to make her work will be the strong breaking Black Oak Smash and the solid grade A chasing Ww’s Elicit. No one knows if Kiowa Try Thelma shows up, but if she wants to run, she could be a player in the deep stretch tonight. (4-7-8-3)
It looks like you need to play the RAIL in the 11th race on the card as the cagey veterans have over 100 wins going against the field. Warped finally gets back inside and another opportunity to post up another win, but she is going to have to deal with 66 race winners Kiowa Jill Vik. Vik can win any race that she wants to and from her best box, she might WANT to win tonight. Recent addition Sookie Stachouse could press the pace to the stretch, but Ww Sparks Flying might just be the one that threatens the upset with her big late driving style. (2-1-4-8)
Post is the key to success in the final race on Saturday evening. In the 15th Gs Grace will be the 660 master from her ideal starting box. Grace is all about the rail and the red blanket gets her to the lead, and the wire, first in this effort. Prompting the pace will be veteran monster Gavotte and Par Super Easy who has taken to the distance like a fish does to water. Speaking of taking to the distance, Pinball Wizard is not doing too bad either with back to back wins in his only 2 races over 660. (1-4-2-6)
The 7th race will be a battle of the winners as Bruno Mars, Pat C Fast Enuf, Amf Boppin Loose, and Tc Parker all won their last official race at bestbet Orange Park. Some did it on the front end, Fast Enuf and Bopping loose, and some did it from off the pace, Bruno Mars and Tc Parker, but either way, they all won. Advantage to veteran Bruno Mars and his determined style, but if he wants to win he will have to catch Fast Enuf and Bopping Loose on the early lead. Tc Parker might be the stretch in this effort, but his last race was a very quick win from this post position. (6-8-2-7)
Race 11 favors the inside part of the racetrack, but if you look deeper a clear favorite comes into focus. Ww’s Tear Strip has won 4 of his last 6 trips including a speed 30.57 romp in his last effort. With a solid break, better than the rest inside, he should see the lead early and control this race throughout. No doubt My Present should be hot on his heels from the rail post position, but both will have to account for the closing duo of Mega Chungo and Amf Leftsiderite as they all approach the finish line in this effort. If they come to run early, it is going to be a war to see who takes home the win. (3-4-1-2)
