Play of the Day - Race 6
2 RUN AND TELL (M/L Odds 3-1) is sitting on tilt. The six-year-old daughter of POWER OF ART has rattled off two straight second place finishes, losing both races by a total of less than two lengths. Her second last start was a narrow loss to the class dropper TAKE ON DA BOYS in 1:57.3. Her most recent start saw her enjoy a perfect two-hole trip behind the wire to winner COWGIRL POKER, who changed tactics and won the race on the engine as oppposed to her off the pace strategy. She used a first over trip that day, but simply could not overtake COWGIRL POKER down the lane, which saw crisp splits of 28.1, 57.3, 1:27 flat and 1:57.4. She meets a similar bunch and should get treated to a decent trip from post two. Driver/trainer Preston Shaw will again be calling the shots.

Play of the Day - Race 7
6 WABASH CANNONBALL (M/L Odds 5-1) was our “Play” a week ago and was sent off as the public favourite as well. Unfortunately, the three-year-old son of MYSTERY CHASE failed to fire. Based on his good showing as a two-year-old, he definitely has talent. The Kelly Hoerdt trainee will now see the very capable Brad Watt in the bike and deserves another shot today. Hoerdt will handle the driving duties on his other entry, COLD CASE, a $35,000 at the 2015 ASHA Yearling sale. He is a half brother of COOL ONE, who made $106,769, and Alberta champion COOL COWBOY. This may be a wake up prospect in this contest today.

Play of the Day - Race 8
2 CENALTA ARTISTRY (M/L Odds 3/1) has been recording minor shares recently. The four-year-old son of ALLAMERICAN MERLIN has a decent post today and should get a good trip. She was a game third to 8 MOON STRUCT (Tainsh) the 8/5 favourite a week ago, who she will again have to face despite her post 8 draw. Driver/trainer Rene Goulet will again be in the bike looking to turn the tables today.
