Trainer Farias Does Best to Fill Card

October 23, 2003|BOB MIESZERSKI

Trainer Adan Farias, who consistently wins at a high percentage, will be busy tonight.

Farias will have starters in five of the eight races on the card, including Hugol in the feature, a $12,150 allowance for 2-year-olds at 350 yards.

In the opener, Farias will send out longshot Girls Apollo, a 2-year-old maiden filly. Then he'll saddle Solferino, a once-beaten 2-year-old maiden filly in the third, Jet N Zack, who has won two in a row, in the fifth, Hugol in the seventh and Mobile Number in the eighth.

Hugol will break from the inside post in the field of eight as he tries for his second victory in three races. Trend And Blend, Sheza Heart Charmer, Good As Good Bye, Frequent Strawflyer, Frankly First, Ep Special and Red Hot Moment complete the field.

The picks: 1. Synchronous. 2. Tikis French Kiss. 3. Brava Brava. 4. Atascaderan. 5. Heza Class Man. 6. Cindys Morningstar. 7. Hugol. 8. Wired To Fly.

Four! Heza Class Man and Splash For Glory in the fifth, Cindys Morningstar in the sixth, Hugol, Frankly First and Frequent Strawflyer in the seventh and Wired To Fly, Mobile Number, Proud Fantacia and Willie Wants Me in the eighth.

Shots in the dark: Paper Cut could improve with a better start in the first. Slew Has A Message drops to a career low in the fourth.

Post time: 7:15 p.m.
