Will Rogers Downs Picks for Wednesday, May 6
Race 7 – 5:15 pm ET – 5 ½ Furlongs Dirt – $17,050 Handicap
Scott Young saddles 3/1 on the morning line Drip Brew. The Yes Its True 6-year-old sired mare won her last by a neck. Two back, she finished second in a $50,000 stakes race. Jockey Floyd Wethey Jr. can either take the lead from the gate or track Ima Discreet Lady if jockey David Cabrera wants the lead. Either way, Drip Brew has a big shot to make it back-to-back victories.
Ima Discreet Lady lost by a neck to Drip Brew in her last. The Karl Broberg trained 4-year-old filly has finished behind Drip Brew in her last couple. There’s a big chance she finishes second to the top choice in this.
Jose Silva trained Ari Gia heads to the track for the first time since this past September. She’s never raced at Will Rogers Downs. That and the layoff is why we relegate to third. But Gia has won 12-of-28, making her a tough equine to leave out of any slot in the trifecta.
- Win: Drip Brew
- Place: Ima Discreet Lady
- Show: Ari Gia
Race 9 – 6:15 pm ET – 6 Furlongs Dirt – $17,050 Handicap
Oil Money could run them off their feet. The Robertino Diodoro trained 4-year-old gelding took the lead under Ty Kennedy in a $50,000 stakes race in early April and held on for a neck win. No other pony in this has the same early foot that Oil Money possesses. Ty takes the lead from the gate and never looks back.
Trainer Jon Arnett wins 40% at Will Rogers Downs. Arnett trained Shred the Rules offers a 6/1 morning line, should get a cozy trip behind the speed, and goes into this off 2 straight wins. If you don’t believe Oil Money goes gate-to-wire, Shred the Rules has as much of a chance to get its picture taken as anyone else.
Karl Broberg trained Lawton has enough speed to take the lead. But the Archarcharch sired runner often prefers to press. That could compromise Lawton’s win chances.
- Win: Oil Money
- Place: Shred the Rules
- Show: Lawton
Race 10 – 6:45 pm ET – 1 Mile Dirt – $7,500 Claiming
Robertino Diodoro trains 8/5 chalk Wrath. Although we’d love to make this one third, it’s hard to see any horse hanging with the son of Flatter in the early stages. Wrath should get the lead and run off. Diodoro wins 31% with his claiming horses and gets 27% repeat winners.
Not Today Alfie goes for 22% at the meet winning trainer George Blatchford. Alfie had to go 4-wide at the 1/8th pole in its last. The 5-year-old gelding may have finished second if it hadn’t had gone wide. A better trip could put the 12/1 on the morning line runner into the exacta.
Hard-trying 7-year-old gelding First to the Wire could grab the show money. The Southern Image sired runner finished second in its last. The 10/1 morning line should hold while the other contenders could tire themselves out of the tri after chasing Wrath.
- Win: Wrath
- Place: Not Today Alfie
- Show: First to the Wire
