Recapping Pimlico’s Friday (Day 35) 10-race card selections, posted 7 winners (3 Top Selections in BOLD type) having $2 WIN pay-offs of $5.60 (1st race), $4.00 (2nd), $4.60 (3rd), $5.00 (6th), $6.40 (7th), $6.40 (8th) and $5.60 (10th).

The BEST BET (35 13-6-3) M’s Punch (R3 #7 6-5 PT; 2-1 M/L) bore out leaving the starting gate, rushed up three wide to take command entering the turn, set the pace well off the rail and held sway under urging to return $4.60 to WIN, $2.80 to PLACE and $2.10 to SHOW.

The LONGSHOT PICK (35 6-1-4) Termsofengagement (R6 #5 11-1 PT; 12-1 M/L) broke a step slow, angled out near the backstretch, was pushed along four wide between rivals to reach a striking spot after a half mile, gave futile chase past the three eighths pole then faltered to finish dead last (6th).
