Elders Clash; Soph Pacers Supply Stakes Action
To The ‘Max’
At Vernon Downs on May 14 a herd of sophomore colt-and-filly trotters make up divisions of the John Simpson Memorial.
The bulk of these fields are eligible to the Hambletonian and the “Oaks.” Our exclusive coverage continues at The Hambletonian Trail blog and on the Hambletonian Society website.
Saturday night, May 14, it’s time to take another crack at the no-takeout Pick 4 from Race 11 through Race 14.
(4) Minettastuppence overcame a tough early trip to get the lead but held on by a neck. (7) Quick On My Feet was far back, leaving from post 8, and chewed up real estate wildly to win.
(2) Awesome Deal N was stuck outside through the better part of the mile and still gained some ground at the finish in a powerful show of endurance at 16-1. Since all others considered contenders should be bet down and have to leave from the outside, this could be the magic single.
(6) Stanza, at 29-1, flashed some speed that could be a flare for what is to come this week. (8) Satire has been successful against this bunch before and last week, sent off at 19-1, closed stoutly.
(5) Bolero Twister just missed as a 5-2 overlay and must be the most respected of this bunch.
If you want to use all of these, the 47/2/68/5 ticket cost $4 ($1 ticket).
