Is It a Ninth to Remember for Crashin Bac?

July 05, 2002|BOB MIESZERSKI

Claimed two races ago for $12,500, Crashin Bac will try for her first victory for her new connections in tonight's ninth, a $20,000 claimer at 350 yards.

Owned by Charles Boylas and James Azevedo and trained by Paul Jones, Crashin Bac was last after breaking slowly at 2-1 on May 5, then rebounded with a solid second at 9-2 six weeks later. Despite bobbling at the start, the 3-year-old Splash Bac filly was beaten by only a neck by Al Paca.

Ramon Sanchez, the leading quarter horse jockey at the meet, retains the mount on Crashin Bac, who will leave from post four in the field of six.

The picks: 1. Janea's Dbldiamond. 2. Ageless. 3. Be Nice. 4. Metamorphosis. 5. Wired To Win. 6. Ponderosa Ruby. 7. Cheer The Royal. 8. Mary Blue Beduino. 9. Especialy Red Hot. 10. Double Timen.

Four! Use Janea's Dbldiamond and Continental Trail in the first, Ageless, Ima Ham and Baby Loves Diamonds in the second, single Be Nice in the third and Metamorphosis, Willow Talk and Traffic Attraction in the fourth.

Shots in the dark: Juan Gordito could improve in the fifth as he switches to jockey Alex Bautista. Momma Is A Moviestar is a firster in the sixth for sharp trainer R C Howell.

Post Time: 7:15 p.m.
