PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Ellis Park – Race 2 
Race overview:  A very deep and competitive 25k claimer going a mile on the main, in a race where everyone can win, but it’s #1 ON A SPREE (3-1) who enters off a powerhouse win and now goes OTC for Sharp. 
Pace:  Expect a compact group early, as there doesn’t appear to be any true speed, and a few of these might struggle to go this far as well, which might temper the enthusiasm early.  
Trends:  They’ve only switched to The Pea Patch for two days of racing, and last 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:  #1 ON A SPREE (3-1): Class riser has aired in two straight and now goes OTC for Sharp (13%), who has been having a strong season in Kentucky, and looks like he’s got this one at the right time too. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5 and to kick off the early Pk4 as well.
