Race 5

#3 PRETTY PERSUASION normally runs a pretty game race and can be forgiven for her last place finish in her last start as she was totally taken out of her game when she ended up on the lead by default in a paceless race where nobody wanted to go to the front end. #5 HIGH DRAW was claimed out of a race at this same 30kN2L three starts back and after a couple of tries against tougher allowance company drops right back down. She had issues at the start in both of her two recent races so the addition of blinkers could help her get out a bit cleaner. #11 MARTIN’S BAY came off of a year long layoff to run 2nd in a main track sprint on November 28th. Now, for her 2nd start off of that long break she stretches out on the grass, something that may suit her better.
