Nice write up....
I’m not as impressed with the 13 as you are. He is the speed but I feel his debut was a bit dressed up on a speed favoring off track. I watched a few races from that day and there was not a whole lot of movement. From the outside he may have to work a bit to get the lead and he’s going a lot further than his first trip.
I like the 9, Silver State quite a bit. He should love 2 turns and was down inside in big fields in his first 2. The maiden breaker he was much the best, the CD mile in the slop was an impressive race. His works on 12/31 & 1/6 were very fast works, AssMan does not normally go that fast in the AM.
The Keith D. 12 has a punchers chance to get into the number off his first race.
Broke a step slow in the slop 2 heats after the 13 broke his maiden and ran very erratic and green. He should be 40/1....
Looking like about 1/4 inch of rain overnight in NOLA clearing up late morning.
