Check out Chok’s Choices for Thursday, March 17, Fair Grounds races

Seeking insights and ideas from middle school teachers and students

Picks made for FAST track and ON turf.

Race 1

2: Strummer: Has found her level here after a nice win in last race at this level; wins again.

6: My Little Jen: Ran well in last after the drop in class; needs to find a bit more today.

Race 2

1: Charlie Michael: Claimed two back by Faucheux; should show some improvement today.

7: Two Dot: Takes what could be a slight drop in class here after two solid efforts past two.

Race 3

9: Chapel of Dreams: Fits amongst these after a couple solid efforts at the level at Delta.

10: Foolish Dreams: Is going to have to go from the outside and pressure the early pace.

Race 4

4: Western Command: Made good start after a layoff in last and should show improvement.

1: Kbcya Later: Comes in off layoff but working well and takes a drop in class for this effort.

Race 5

6: Deer Crossing: Gets back to the turf after the last dirt try; drops down in class for this.

8: Perrins: Last was better than looked and this one might improve more today; one to beat.

Race 6

3: Cryptozonic: Has run into some tough foes last three but gets competition relief here.

2: Wise Anchor: Trainer has done well here and drops this one back to reasonable level,

Race 7

4: The Princess Says: Has had a race over the track and should get good foundation from that.

5: Peacock Alley: working up a storm in the morning last few works: seems to have talent.

Race 8

5: Therideofalifetime: Should be ready to go after running on dirt last out but loves the turf.

1: Sky and Sand: Classy horse gets back to allowance company here and working well for return.

Race 9

1: Love Creed: Should be able to handle these as a debuter; working well; rail draw helps.

9: All American Pat: Has a race under her belt; should show some vast improvement today.

Around the Track

As we tipped in Wednesday’s write-up, the trainer’s race for top trainer has really gotten tight heading into the final two weeks. As this is written on Wednesday afternoon, Ron Faucheux has a two-win lead on Brad Cox and Bret Calhoun after trailing by many wins just last week. Faucheux put a terrific week together last week to overtake Cox and Calhoun but there are still plenty race days to go. On the jockey’s side, Rey Gutierrez seems a strong favorite to win his first Fair Grounds riding title as he holds a 14-win lead over last year’s champ James Graham heading into the final 10 racing days.

Best Bet

Our Best Bet today will be in Race 6 — No. 3 Crytozonic, who has run into some really tough foes in last few but gets none of those opponents here today.

Good luck and may they all come home safely.
