# 5 A WARRIOR DEFINED 4/1

# 2 COACH Q 3/1

# 6 WALLY'S GOT CLASS 7/2

My choice in here is A WARRIOR DEFINED. Rust has a sharp win percent with horses running in dirt route races. Has decent early lick and will most likely fare admirably against this group of horses in this race. Ran a strong last race. COACH Q - He has been running very well and the Equibase Speed Figures are among the most favorable in this field. Should be given a shot - I like the numbers from the last outing. WALLY'S GOT CLASS - Has been right there on the wire most every time recently. Has been running well and has among the top speed in the race for today's distance.

Race 2 - Maiden Claiming - 5.5f on the Dirt. Purse: $8000 Class Rating: 47

RECOMMENDED CHOICES
The Walker Group Picks

# 4 MI FRANCESA BRENDA 2/1

# 3 MANGIARELA 3/1

# 5 INSPIRADA 4/1

My pick in this race is MI FRANCESA BRENDA. Looks respectable against this group and should be one of the leaders. A solid 58 avg Equibase class figure may give this filly a distinct class edge versus this group of horses in this race. MANGIARELA - This filly looks strong for this event since Gomez has a very strong win percentage with horses going this distance. INSPIRADA - This selection will feel the med change - on Lasix today. Berrios should be able to get this filly to break out early for this event.

Evangeline Downs - Race #3 - Post: 6:20pm - Maiden Claiming - 5.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $12,000 Class Rating: 51

Rating: Golden DollarGolden DollarGolden Dollar

#3 CAJUN BANDIT (ML=10/1)
#9 FORT STEVENS (ML=3/1)
#10 FATHER GEORGE (ML=5/1)


CAJUN BANDIT - My expertise says this is the only presser in the race. Gelding took a little vacation, but has been racing into shape. FORT STEVENS - Finished second, but easily second over the third horse. Those types usually run well next time out. Got to appreciate a good work horse. This gelding's last prep was second fastest of the day for the distance. Gelding flopped as the betting favorite in a $7,500 Maiden Claiming race last time out. Was a good race even though he finished second. I like this gelding. Has the uppermost earnings per start in today's contest. FATHER GEORGE - My experienced judgement tells me to be on the alert for this mount in this race

Vulnerable Contenders: #6 CANADIAN FIREBALL (ML=4/1), #8 OLD PEP N STEP (ML=6/1), #4 CONS PERCUSSION (ML=6/1),

CANADIAN FIREBALL - Garnered a mediocre speed rating last time around the track in a $7,500 Maiden Claiming race on August 4th. Improbable to see an improved performance off of that figure. OLD PEP N STEP - This gelding hasn't been showing me anything positive in the last couple of races. Not likely that the speed figure he notched on August 9th will be enough in this race. CONS PERCUSSION - Could be tough for this racer to beat this field off of that last speed figure. Unlikely to improve enough to run a figure close to today's class rating, so put him on the questionable contenders list.



STRAIGHT WAGERS:

Go with #3 CAJUN BANDIT on top if we're getting at least 3/1 odds

Presque Isle Downs - Race #5 - Post: 7:05pm - Claiming - 6.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $13,000 Class Rating: 74

Rating: Golden DollarGolden DollarGolden DollarGolden Dollar

#1 DAISY CREEK (ML=8/1)
#10 BELLA FLOR (ML=9/5)
#4 CAROLYN'S JOY (ML=4/1)


DAISY CREEK - This filly is in good physical condition. Ran third on Aug 7th. I usually like playing sprint horses who are 3-4 races into a come back. BELLA FLOR - The Aug 9th race at Presque Isle Downs was at a class level of (83). Dropping down the class ladder a significant amount, so she should be in a good place. Another way to judge class is earnings per start. This horse has the uppermost in the field. I think she'll be close at the finish line. CAROLYN'S JOY - I like to wager on this handicapping theory, a horse coming back off a nice outing within the last month or so.

Vulnerable Contenders: #2 NORTHERN ALLIANCE (ML=6/1), #5 MINI'S SHOES (ML=6/1), #1A BARNIE'S LADY (ML=8/1),

NORTHERN ALLIANCE - Showed some physical problems in the last race at Presque Isle Downs. MINI'S SHOES - This was a hot horse, but now this one hasn't been doing anything in the morning. Have to be somewhat leery of this horse. BARNIE'S LADY - Don't think this horse will make an impact in today's race. That last rating was pedestrian when compared with today's class figure.



STRAIGHT WAGERS:

Have to go with #1 Entry on the win end if we get at least 7/2 odds

RACE #8 - SARATOGA RACE COURSE - 4:45 PM EASTERN POST

The John's Call Stakes

13.0 FURLONGS TURF THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD STAKES $100,000.00 PURSE

#5 RENOWN
#7 RED RIFLE
#3 INFINITE WISDOM
#1 ST. LOUIE

The 1 5/8 mile turf race was inaugurated in 2004 and named in honor of John's Call, who competed on the flat and over jumps, winning or placing in 30 of 40 starts and earning $1,571,267. Purchased as a yearling in 1992 by Douglas Joyce for $4,000 and trained by Tom Voss, the gelding had his best year in 2000, when he won the Sword Dancer Invitational by 9.5 lengths, becoming at age 9 the oldest runner to win a Grade 1 race at Saratoga. That year he also won the Grade 1 Turf Classic Invitational at Belmont Park and finished third in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Turf. In 2006, the race was run at 1 3/16 miles on the dirt. Here in the 14th running of "The Call," #5 RENOWN, a British-bred entry, and a 10-1 BOMB, is the overall speed leader in this stakes field, and has produced "POWER RUN PERFORMANCES" in five straight starts, hitting the board in four of those "adventures," including a quartet of "POWER RUN WINS" being embedded in this recent streak of racing consistency. #7 RED RIFLE, the morning line favorite, has turned in "POWER RUNS" in four of his last five starts, hitting the board in a pair.
