PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Ellis Park – Race 7 
Race overview:  A compact 50k starter-allowance going a mile on the main track. 
Pace:  It looks honest, as there are a trio here who want to be close to the early proceedings, though none of them are overly fast either, while the other trio is void of an early speed at all. 
Trends:  They’ve only switched to The Pea Patch for two days of racing, and Sunday was run over a very sloppy track, so let’s take a wait-and-see approach before determining how things might be playing. 
Best Play:  #4 YO PUEDO (3-1): Impressive Kee N2L route winner did well to draw outside some other speed here, is still lightly raced with upside, and looks poised to take advantage of a field where a few of her main rivals are at a major tactical disadvantage. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
