Overall View

Another great week of racing beings Wednesday Afternoon at the Spa and the feature is race nine. Race nine is The Bolton Landing, a $100,000 race sprinting on the grass. Wesley Ward is loaded in this race, having three of the eight horses in the field. Shang Shang Shang is one of the horses in the race and the horse won by a nose at Ascot last time out. Joel Rosario is up and he has had a nice meet winning 17% of his starts. Chad Brown also has a nice runner in the race with Drynachan. The horse looked great opening weekend at the Spa breaking the maiden very convincingly. Chad will try and win another stakes race in New York but will have his hands full with the three Ward runners.

Picks: 3-8-2-4
