My Selections

1-Light Her Up-seems likely to break through here

2-Pinky Promise-figures to be somewhere in the mix

3-Toga Dance-big price could fire in this subpar heat

That will do it for my look at the Friday card. I will be back for our 1st full weekend of racing with my look at the Saturday slate of races. Figure that we will have a big crowd on track due to the Bayou Classic being played on Saturday and I will be back to preview the card so until then as always may your winners be plentiful and your wallets be fat.
