Nick Shiambouros struck again yesterday when his best bet Somelikeithotbrown won at 12.48 BSP at Saratoga. Nick returns to Delaware Park with two selections...
"He will appreciate the ease in grade, and could pop- up at a big price"
Declared to make a statement
Race 3 19:15 Delaware Park - Declared
I am going to back outsider Declared in this $25k claimer on the turf.
This Hard Spun gelding was a no show in a Maiden Special Weight at the Fairgrounds in February. He ran a little wide on the home turn, but made no impression in the straight and finished well beaten. This run was too bad to be true, as he finished a closing second against similar on debut in January. He makes his debut for new trainer Richard Hendricks, who has a 31% strike rate with horses dropping to claiming for the first time. He will appreciate the ease in grade, and could pop- up at a big price. His Morning Line is [13.0], but recommend backing him at BSP.
Race 8 21:45 Delaware Park - Thedevilmademedoit
Thedevilmademedoit should go close in this $6,250k non winner of two races on the main track.
She has some decent form on both the turf course and the main track. On her latest start on the main track she finished a creditable fifth in a $16k non winner of two races claimer. She ran on fairly well in the closing stages, but failed to deliver a challenge behind the game winner. Trainer Jamie Ness aggressively drops her, and the talented Carol Cedeno rides back for connections. Ness has a 21% strike rate in all claiming races which is impressive. She should be backed at around [3.0] on the exchange.
