Milton Stakes Tops Marquee FeaturesJug” weekend finds a lot of division members resting after jaunts around the Delaware, Ohio half-miler. That doesn’t mean there are slim pickings; there are plenty of good races, classy sires stakes, and the big mare pace in Canada, to interest our wagering bankrolls.
Mystically Mine (1) and Red Star Fiona (7) won big races last out from the 8 hole. They should be raring to do the same in this field filled with horses that need a race in the new season.
Mighty Fine Hi Ho (9) finished fourth after a tough but impressive trip. He was impeded at the start and then put on the speed to get the lead, though first over, and was burned out by that point. He could corral a big price here if he can get by the two that won last week.
Franco Smoothie N (4) was all out to take the lead last week but could not get there. This caused him to be hung for three calls and he went the overland route strongly. That was a red flag, making him another possible big price.
Millions (3) broke and was eliminated and must be respected again (he was the second choice). King Carver (6) was stuck on the outside trying to negotiate leaving from post 9. He could find a good spot and roll over this weak field.
