Horse Racing Trader’s Tips: US Racing – Tuesday 5th May
Our expert previews the action from Will Rogers Downs and Fonner Park
The racing fun continues on Tuesday, with plenty of action from the States.
And our trader Joseph Kyne has outlined which jockeys and horses to look out for.
Will Rogers Downs
With five winners from his last 15 rides, Lane Luzzi tops the list of hot jockeys and he comes from good pedigree as the son of racing legend Mike Luzzi.
But he faces stiff competition at the Oklahoma track, with rivals Floyd Wethey Jr, Ty Kennedy and David Cabrera all in action.
Kennedy has eight booked rides and he teams up with trainer Robertino Diodoro for five of them. The pair have impressed together this season and they should come out on top once again with My Wise Catat 21:15.
Flashy Wise Cat’s son has won three of his last four starts under Kennedy and despite winning by just 3/4 length last time out, the extra furlong this time out should play to his strengths.
The following race could prove fruitful for Kennedy as well onboard D R C’s Arm Candy at 21:45. Scott Young’s charge was beaten by just half a length in his last two outings but a repeat of those performances should see him through against weak opposition.
Ty Kennedy booked rides: Weekend Madness (19:45), Victory Stripe (20:45), My Wise Cat (21:15), D R C’s Arm Candy (21:45), Hot’n Notty (22:15), Dr. Beets (22:45), Kertara (23:15), Union Rebel (23:45)
While up and coming jockey Dakota Wood is back in action, Armando Martinez could be the one to watch in Nebraska. The veteran has been riding at Fonner Park for almost 35 years and he’s back in the form of his life.
Want To Be Cowboyat 22:27 is one to watch after winning by six lengths on debut last time out but his two-month absence could be a cause for concern.
Giant Gamble in the 00:15 could also impress after winning by just a nose in his last outing. He’ll face stiff competition from Green Card and Shepherd’s Pride, who finished just behind him, and it’ll be another interesting contest between the trio in the final race on the card.
Armando Martinez booked rides: Trask (22:00), Want to Be Cowboy (22:27), Scioto’s Shoes (23:21), Glory of the Game (23:48), Giant Gamble (00:15), Classy and Fast (00:42), Mayhawk (01:09)
