Indiana Downs - Quarter Horse Night - Four Stakes

Indiana Downs
Analysis by Jose Contreras (@LosPonies)
Best Bet: #2 Gallant Ways (Race 3)
Long Shot Play: #7 Habits Secret (Race 6)

Whata Cool Cat has shown consitent numbers, has some gate speed and looks to have the experience edge. Hqh Special Charlie showed improvement in his second start where he finished a good fourth. The first and second place finishers in that race returned to win. Executive Call looks like an interesting first time starter for owner/breeder/trainer Neil Schnecker. Shows a nice loca workout of 11.12.
Eyes Easy Cash looked she didn’t care for the sloppy surface last out. She had the lead in the 132k Stakes at 300 yards two starts ago and now cuts back to 250 yards. All Your Life was well supported at 5-1 in her debut. She received good racing experience, should improve. Zooms Dynasty is also making his second lifetime start. He should improve off of his debut effort. Has good post position between two slow breakers.
Gallant Ways got a clean trip and powered away. Likes this distance and should be tough to beat with a good break. Fierce Runaway pulled away to a four length win when dismissed at odds of 6-1. Has to carry her speed and extra 50 yards today. Tinys First Pepsi didn’t get away to the best of starts but was making up ground late when missing by a neck. He’s already a two-time stakes winner and will stretch out to 400-yards for the first time in his career.
Wh Preicous Perry has finished second a total of six times including last time where the winner was much the best. Jackson sticks with the ride and trainer Ron Raper adds lasix for the first time. Six Packin Hero finished fourth in her last out when favored, her effort two starts ago fits here. Hez Got Style is another one adding lasix for the first time and shows a fast 11.34 workout since his last race. Gets a good outside post.
Pyc First Prize Fany pulled away late in a good looking win in her trial. She is only making her third career start and her sire has been producing some nice runners. Fast Prize Man took to Indiana Downs nicely by scoring a good win in his trial from this same post position. General Lee was favored in the trial against my top choice but finished third. He is already a two-time stakes finalist and gets a good outside post.
Habits Secret broke good but missed second by a head after making his first start since February. He should be more fit this time around. He is already a two-time Stakes winner. Hez Snow Quick comes into this race with sharp back-to-back wins at this track and at this distance. He is the deserving morning line favorite. Diamonds Edge showed big improvement in his second start when breaking on top and winning at 5-1. He is only making his third start tonight.
Flys No Mystery closed tons of ground in the final strides to get up and win by a nose. If he gets off to a better break, he will be the one to deny. This Lion Roars is a perfect 2-for-2 at this 400 yard distance and owns two wins for this track. Has improved under trainer Salvador Rojas. Hopen to Smokem also closed ground late in his trial but missed by a head. He has always shown a late kick but needs a better break. This is only his third time at this distance.
Chilled Six Pack pulled off a 14-1 upset in his trial when assuming command midway and holding on for the win. He likes the track and looks to be back in form at the right time. Air Born Leader is a multiple stakes winner that loves to win races at Indiana Downs. Has not lost a step as a 5-year-old and his jockey knows him well. Brimmerton Lane has shown talent at times and this seems to be his best distance. Picks up a new jockey and could be making up ground late.
Wicked Snow had a troubled trip last time out when going off as the favorite, his best finish was under this rider, adds lasix, and I like the inside post. Bonos Heart finished a decent 4th in his 3-year-old debut and should improve from that effort. He once had some good gate speed, let’s see if he can show some of that today. Diablos Cartel comes in from a third place finish in a Stakes race at Turf Paradise at this same distance. Any of his last four starts would be tough here. His trainer is doing well at the meet with 3 wins and 3 seconds from ten starters.

I watch horses run around.
