Already in the 9th inning in St. Louis now, and PUIG YOUR FRIEND has hit 3 HR on his own. PUIG YOUR FRIEND.
La-La Land Los Doyers leading, 17-4, should hang on for the win and move into sole possession the second N.L. wild-card spot and into a tie atop the Western Division, with Colo. yet to play today.
#1 Aikenetta ($22, BestLine Fair Odds 5.99-1)

Finger 5 (Low-Priced Overlay of the Day)
#5 I’m a Good Looker (#6.30, BestLine Fair Odds 1.26-1)
Meadowlands opens tonight! They race only on the turf now, and remember when Nueva Jersey had legitimate dirt-and-turf racing at all of Meadowlands, Frantic City, Garden State and, obviously, Monmouth? Now it’s down to just Monmouth, itself still one of the prettiest racetracks in the whole of the North American Thoroughbred sport. But, yes, they used to have a main track at Meadowlands for evening racing. Nevermore!
But it’s a now world, so here’s what we can figure out, if the scratches we were handed across the desk here at 4:01 p.m. EDT are all there will be. Race 3 is the contentious one now, and Race 5 has a slim BestLine top-choice who offers some double-digit parimutuel potential to win.
So, it’s time to play Meadowlands for old times’ sake. See if you can get PUIG YOUR FRIEND to pick your horseys for you! PUIG YOUR FRIEND.
