CHRIS WADE'S HANDICAP FOR SUNDAY NIGHT, MAY 26

1ST 9-HESS SEND KEVIN closed strongly after a less than stellar start when earning a solid figure with all factored in and the good looker draws well for his 2nd career start. 7-COWBOY BOLT crushed in his debut 21 nights ago and after breaking a step slow and skiing past the gap prior to leveling strongly. Should be a player in here as a "first time gelding" which should move him forward more. 1-SO SO TEMPTING went well for the runner-up placing in his first start and after a bobbling start prior to a nice late run. Will be closing well. 

 

2ND 7-BIG HURT crushed in his debut 22 nights ago after prepping strongly (A-/Grade) prior when putting up a quality figure that's best in here on the stretch-out and the long-strider should be tough to deny as the favorite. 1-SPECIAL BATCH went ohhh so much better than looked for 3rd in the debut after a slow start prior to the big mid-race and late run to the wire. Could be a threat to the topper with a clean start tonight. 2-J LA PROFESORA showed a nice late run to garner the 2nd place finish after a kinda ehh start when putting up a comparable figure. 

 

3RD 4-DEVILS TOWER crushed from the rail as the deserved odds-on favorite in his 2nd start after a tough tripped debut prior. Will be a player in this closely matched event with an expected step onward for top-notch connections. 8-HEART LIKE A TRUCK was a fast closing 3rd in his first start after leaning back at the start to lose multiple lengths and any semblance of a chance for the win which almost and should've happened. Could be a player in here with a clean start and at a nice price. 6-MITCHUM won well at a big price for quality connections after prepping (B++/Grade) well prior and this shed-row moves em' up with more distance. 

 

4TH 4-NORCO was ohhh sooo impressive in the career debut 29 nights ago after prepping the same and all without being asked at all. This runner is scarry talented and he'll produce many a "goosebump" with the expected effort. Can Y'all say....17.57?  as the Chris' Picks Best Bet on the Race-Card. 7-TOXIC DETAILS crushed in the career debut without much ask at all when earning my 2nd best number in this event and he'll be an underneath exacta player for a solid jockey/trainer (23%) combo. 8-OPEN BOOK improved immensely when the "real racing" began on my charts after prepping (C++/B=/Grades) okay prior. Will step onward again and be a threat at a price in the exotics wagers. 

 

5TH 7-WIRE FRAUD crushed in the debut very easily as the odds-onner (lol) after prepping huuuge prior (A++/A/Grades) when earning a solid figure that's best in here for an up and coming shed-row with the 2 year old set. 3-BEING BLESSED finished well for the runner-up placing after a less than stellar start when putting a solid number with all factored in. Could be the main threat to the topper with the addition of yardage tonight. 4-AJ ROSE GOLD improved nicely in the 2nd career start after finding mucho strife in the debut prior. Will be the long-shot closing down the lane with a decent getaway. 

 

6TH 1-ASSAULTT closed like a runaway freighttrain for a "better than looked" 5th in the troubled debut 42 nights ago when earning a solid figure for this event and the long-strider will adore the distance this night. 5-LAREDEAUX crushed in the debut at a medium mutual after a solid morning (B+/B/Grades) foundation prior and he'll be on the engine on the stretch-out tonight. Will be the lead in here. 8-DIVA BEST CARD was a much troubled debut when showing a nice late run after said slow getaway. Will be in the mix with a decent start. 

 

7TH 8-MY BUDD went well for the runner-up placing in the Kindergarten Futurity 14 nights ago after a decent start when almost catching the prefect tripped winner as the Chris' Picks Play in said affair. With two figures that are easily best in here, we'll push the odds-on favorite harshly to be triple tough to deny. 1-CELTIC CARTEL went well for 2nd in the debut after a slight brushing at the start when showing a nice turn of foot to the wire. Will be finishing up the rail on the stretch-out tonight. 4-DO THE JOB exits an impressive late running debut win after a slow start when brushing the gate at the getaway. Will be the late running sorrel y'all see nearing the wire.

 

8TH 3-PLAY MISTY was a fast closing 3rd in the Kindergarten 14 nights ago after a back bobbling start prior to the drifting out late run to the wire. The figure earned is stellar when earning the Chris' Picks "W" (horse to watch) moniker. Will be the deserved favorite on the quick comeback. 7-APOLLITICAL MAVERICK is a big bodied well connected runner who went well for 2nd versus a quality rival that's the chalk (Big Hurt) in the 2nd when putting up a competitive figure for this event. Will be the improving late runner to the wire at a medium mutual. 1-CITY OF BLOOD prepped well prior to the troubled debut when bucking the rider off while on the early lead in the debut. The speedster came back to work well again albeit "running about" right back.  Ability but needs to mind his racing manners. 

 

9TH 4-HEY WAUSS was a close up 4th in the recently run (14 nights ago) Kindergarten Futurity after breaking a bit head-high prior to the finishing fairly well to the wire. Will be on the engine tonight yelling "catch me if Y'all can" as the deserved favorite. 6-EXPLOITER was a "better than looked" 6th the same event the topper does exit when putting up my 2nd best figure in here with all factored (trouble @ track variant) in and said number is pretty close to the favorite. Could be the minor upsetter if said rival makes a minor mistake. 3-BEACH WALK finished steadily for the close up 2nd placing in the debut after prepping (B=/Grade) fairly well prior. Could be the price player on the stretch-out for the underneath exotics. 

 

10TH 7-SHES SALTY N SASSY went steadily for the close up 3rd in the needed career debut 29 nights ago after prepping strongly (A-/Grade) prior. The shed-row brings in one of their top riders to show the way tonight as we expect a "Big Step" forward in here in the 2nd career start and the stats for the jockey/trainer (28%) point out our feeling. 1-ASTRONAUT finished a slightly troubled 2nd as the favorite on the ship-in 22 nights ago when putting up a comparable figure with all factored in. Should be a player for all the board placings albeit too short of a price for me all things considered. 4-ELSIA has been much troubled in both starts when still showing ability after prepping impressively (A-/B/Grade) prior. Could be a nice priced contender in here as the Chris' Picks Price Player with an elusive clean start and ensuing journey. 

 

11TH 6-FEAR N FRIDAYS was a much troubled favorite in the Kindergarten Futurity 14 nights ago in an effort we'll toss aside and take a gander at the impressive Trial for said event. That effort earned a quality figure that's best in here and only another troubled getaway should hinder his chances to the wire. 1-POWERFUL WISE LADY broke the maiden impressively when putting up a competitive figure that's not too far off the favorite and she's bred to improve with distance. Should be in the mix throughout. 4-ULTIMATE BATTLE went "much better than looked" for 2nd in the debut 22 nights ago getting very fractious in the gate prior to brushing at the start losing some ground. After all was said and done this runner showed a nice turn of foot to the wire and he prepped huuge (A/A=/Grade) prior. Should be a player if he can mind his gate manners. 

 

12TH 6-TORNADEAUX was a much troubled 4th in the career debut 36 nights ago when breaking slowly and getting crossed to lose multiple lengths prior to the nice finish while under a hold. Will be the main threat in his 2nd start over the surface for a jockey/trainer combo having a stellar weekend over many a racing surface. 4-APOLLITICAL BET was a troubled 3rd as the favorite in the career debut 29 nights ago after prepping strongly (A-/B-/Grades) prior and actually moving forward immensely in the 2nd daytime exercise. A clean start should promote a solid effort at a medium mutual. 5-PARTY TIME TOM was a solid runner-up in the debut after prepping only (C+-/Grade) okay prior. Could be one that needs competition to show their best and he'll get it tonight. Good Luck Y'all  ! ! ! And don't forget the Pick 6 with the  $ 10,000 Seed Money  ! ! !
