Post Time is 3:45 PM ET.
Radar Insight: FREE TO FLY has run seven consecutive high-quality starts, including the top, last race speed figure.
Ron Hendrickson's FREE TO FLY breaks from the four hole at odds of 2-1 on the morning-line. She's trained by Kathleen O'Connell and will be ridden by Paco Lopez for this six furlong, OC $12,500 event for fillies and mares, three year olds and upward. She's never been worse than second in her last nine races. She tied her career top-speed figure last time out at Monmouth Park, a similar level at the same six furlong distance where she was geared down at the wire.
PARTY AT PAGE'S — Monday, August 8th, 2021 @ Finger Lakes, Race 8.
Post Time is 4:33 PM ET.
Radar Insight: PARTY AT PAGE'S has two wins and a second in three starts at Finger Lakes. She should be at/near peak form in her third start after a layoff.
Gold Star Racing Stable, Emcee Stable LLC and Brian McKenzie's PARTY AT PAGE'S breaks from the three hole for trainer Jeremiah C. Englehart, with a morning-line odds of 3-1. The GEMOLOGIST-bred filly has shown an affinity for Finger Lakes and has trained sharply for the assignment. She delivered a sharp workout on August 3rd, going 4F in :48.10, the 3rd fastest of 24 workouts at that distance. About one week prior, she fired a bullet work going :47.20 as the fastest of 19 works at that distance. She's ready to roll. In her last start, she dueled early through swift fractions, yet had enough in the tank to get the job done as the $0.25-to-win favorite. Jockey John Davila Jr. was aboard for that win and is back again for the task.
