Yet another Pick-6 carryover to attack today – there’s $74,682 in the till – and another difficult card to deal with. The sequence begins with the 3rd race and we'll use #5 Band of Thunder and #8 All Man. Band of Thunder returns to the high priced claiming ranks while retaining Bejarano and he’s also back on the main track, which is his preferred surface. His excellent tactical speed should keep him out of trouble and this extended sprint trip is ideal for his style. All Man lands the good outside post and keeps firing bullets for Canani.
