BIG AFFAIR— Monday, July 05, 2021 @ Delaware Park, Race 2.

Post Time is 1:45 PM ET.

Radar Insight: BIG AFFAIR came off the bench to run the highest, last race speed figure. She usually adds to it in race two off the sidelines. 

BIG AFFAIR breaks from post position two for trainer Greg Compton, who is also owner with Khaki Jack Racing LLC. The 4-year-old filly by THE BIG BEAST has morning-line odds of 2-1. She's hot on our radar, having achieved a new top speed figure last time out, which was at this very track, surface and distance. She won by seven lengths as the $0.40-to-win favorite. Jockey Skyler Spanabel was aboard last time and is back again on the saddle. Note BIG AFFAIR's affinity for Delaware Park: 2 wins 1 second in 3 total starts. BIG AFFAIR also gets a minor weight break over her two top rivals: she carries seven pounds less than the six-horse, and five pounds less than the seven-horse.

SEAPORT STORM —  Monday, July 05, 2021 @ Finger Lakes, Race 2.

Post Time is 1:39 PM ET.

Radar Insight: SEAPORT STORM is making her first start after being claimed for trainer Englehart, a 26% winner.

SEAPORT STORM breaks from the fourth-slot for trainer Chris J. Englehart and owner Smart Choice Stable, pegged at odds of 4-1 on the morning-line. The 4-year-old filly by LEA enters this assignment with a string of honest efforts: one race back, she beat competitors at this level; two back, she stumbled at the start and lost all chances; three races back, she faced tougher and won by six lengths. Moreover, she‘s got 2 wins from 3 starts at Finger Lakes. Note that she's in the good hands of jockey John R. Davila Jr., who teams up with trainer Chris J. Englehart to win currently at a solid 45% rate. SEAPORT STORM touts :22 and :45 opening speed to contend with, and if she strikes the front early, she might run the field off their feet.
