Race 6

#4 PINPOINT is the Cody Autrey class dropper in the field and he does look dangerous at this 15k level after a 5th place finish against 25k competition but before that he did win as the favorite against a group of 16k claimers. He comes in from CD and that form has been holding up well this meet. #2 ADMIRAL HALSEY runs for trainer Tom Amoss and gets James Graham aboard as he steps up in class off of a win. He’s been in good form this year with 8 trifecta finishes to show for his 12 starts this year. #3 SWEETENING makes his 2nd start of the meet after a 3rd place finish at this level in his last start at 15-1. He was scratched out of a race on December 12th that was carded for the turf and although he was entered MTO and that race was indeed taken off of the turf, it came up pretty tough so he scratched out to run here in this easier spot.
