Another great weekend of racing is upon us here at bestbet Orange Park. Loads of talent grace the top grade races this weekend over 550 and 660 yards. Several of the youngster will be warming up as the Jacksonville Juvenile is right around the corner, and take notice of the distance change of 2014 Orange Park Derby winner Tmc’s Sweety Pie. She too is setting her sites on back to back titles and a chance to take home an extra $5K in cash in the process. Looking to repeat what Lee Opera did earlier in the year, she might have the right stuff to get it done.
Let’s take a look at the races and see if we can get you some winning tickets this weekend at bestbet Orange Park.
Friday Evening -
Race 7 – do doubt the Ww’s connection is in full effect in this race. Ww’s Feddistrict and Ww’s Disco both have drawn good post positions and each and a grade A winning showing in the book. Both can come late and get you at the wire, and either way you like em, play em. Others to worry about include the only solid grade A in the bunch, Crazyzapper, and the resurging I need to be close early runner, Lauren Kan Bolt. (2-8-7-6)
Race 11 – Over to 660 for this one, and all you have to do is play the greyhounds that just got off of the stakes rounds. Gs Lemaster was a finalist that was in contention early on, before being wiped out in the finals. A better break tonight, and right back to winning, just like he did in 2 of the 4 rounds of the stakes. Kiowa Coe Liz should threaten as she is hot off a win last time out ,and also won a round of the stakes just like Kiowa Ann Phelps did. Ann must break well to be effective here, but don’t forget about the cagey vet Gs Daisy May either. If she gets loose, she might just smoke them all tonight. (4-8-3-5)
Race 15 – It’s an all inside part in this effort. Pup sensation Centeno is getting better with every start and has 6 grade A’s in a row, and has posted up wins in two of those efforts. Watch for another box to wire gem tonight. Pushing the pace should be the well posted greyhound Ww’s Bank from the one box, and late there will be a big time threat coming in the form of Gm’s Miss Ashley, and the coming from nowhere runner Kiowa Monique! (3-1-2-4)
Saturday Matinee -
Race 9 – Forget the last effort! Ww’s Activepower will rebound right back into winning in this effort. With 3 wins, and 5 quinielas, in her last 6 races, she is the one to beat in this effort. Prompting her early should be the finding his groove again runner Gs Grimm, and late both of them better be wary of the hard closing duo of Ww’s Shock Wave from a great rail post, and the climbing star Leadingtheparade, who has 5 trifecta finishes in a row. (5-7-1-4)
Race 15 – Big time battle here in the 15th as two of the main men on the circuit will be duking it out for the win. No doubt that Game Of Bones and Macktheknife will come to run in this effort, but who will get loose early on and will it be enough to post up the W. Bones should be the early leader today, but late he is going to have to do something special to hold off Macktheknife at the wire. He will not be the only late challenger though as the solid grade A veteran Jaw’s Gallery draws his favorite rail post and will be screaming up at the wire as well. Don’t sleep on upstart ship in Gm’s Dylan either. Since arriving he has not missed the quiniela and has climbed up the ranks with 3 win in his last 4 races. (5-4-1-6)
Saturday Evening -
Race 7 – Enough of this getting caught from behind bull says Ww’s Glare in this one. Time to hit the lid, steal enough early, and survive late for the victory against this talented field. Stalking the leader the entire way should be the other big early speeder in this race Gs Sweetie. Both are short late, but who knows what might happen if Sweetie gets her nose in front first. Ww’s Souix also has some early foot and should throw in a challenge from the start, but no lead might be safe tonight if converted router, and Orange Park Derby finalist, Chasmo’s Octane gets around close from his one box in this effort. (7-4-5-1)
Race 11 – On to the next adventure, Tmc’s Sweety Pie moved back to 550 for the upcoming Jacksonville Juvenile, and almost kept the win streak alive in the process. Screaming late over 550, that is what she does, she just missed the win at the wire. Still a long way to the rail from the 6 box, but it has been kind to her in the past. No lead is insurmountable in this effort. Time to start off a new win streak tonight. Trying to ruin her plans should be the always tough closing threat Waubun Blizzard, the other converted router that is loving back at 550 again Dutch Gabby, and the only true early speeder and probable leader in this race Vj In The Mix. (6-5-3-7)
Race 15 – Back to 660 for the nightcap and you have to like Gs Hubert in this effort. You never know just what you are going to get with him, but when he is on, he is on, and you can’t ignore that 37.29 drumming he put up just 4 races back. Late speed is his forte, but if he breaks, forgetaboutit. Coming from just off the pace, he gets it done here. Pushing the early pace should be the 2014 First Coast Derby Winner Ww’s Sweetie. This veteran is getting a little long in the tooth, but she can still bring it on occasion. If she gets loose on the lead, she could take it all. Also around early should be the hot off a win, and now back in grade A, runner Ty Kay Event, and no one is feeling it more tonight that Hell’s Belle who won her last race with ease and is now ready for the next level once again. (7-3-6-2)
Sunday Matinee -
Race 9 – This race should be a battle from the box for not only the lead, but for the win as well. Veteran Gs Island Cruze is the best early speeder in this field, and frankly, the one to beat on both accords. No one should get a nose in front of her early on, but late they might have a chance if she can’t steal away enough lengths at the start. Ship in threat Gs Kiwi should be the major threatening force in this race as she has not missed the money in all 6 of her effort around the Orange Park oval. Others to watch out for include the solid grade A chasing, closing threat, Ww’s Pristine, and the well posted lead stalking greyhound O Ya Jasmine. (6-7-8-1)
Don’t forget the Comedy Club on Friday evening, and the Jacksonville Juvenile which starts with round one on Friday evening November 14th at bestbet Orange Park!
