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.
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.
