Here we are; it’s come to this. Opening Night at Retama Park in lovely Selma, Tex., near San Antonio. Love these Tuesday-night Opening Nights. They are ingenious. Where there is a racing desert, Retama Park will provide the oasis! Or something like that.

Finger 2
#1 Cora Renee’s Halo ($23.80, BestLine Fair Odds 4.95-1)

Presque 8
#10 Persuasion ($23.80, BestLine Fair Odds 3.48-1)

Finger 5 (Low-Priced Overlay of the Day)
#2 Girl’s Dance Party ($9.70, BestLine Fair Odds 1.75-1)

Continued rally-friendly at Presque 6½f. No speed-trips at this late hour. Regrets!

A couple of live longshots emerge in Mountain 5. Virtual co-choices in the fifth at aforementioned Retama, but one appears much higher on the morning line — what now? But in the next one there, you may be able to get a square price on an obvious runner…once in a while!

Tomorrow is August, and, for most, that is a good month to play the horses. Take care now!
