SHOW Parlay Play of the Day:  $55 on More Than  a Cruise  (# 1; 9th race; 7-5) might be a cop-out pick here in a short field, but “never look a gift horse in the mouth”. She has never been worse than 2nd in 7 lifetime starts at this (6 furlong) distance. Enough said.

It’s a beautiful day to go to Old Hilltop. If you have other plans, then make it a point to go on one of the other 26 days remaining in the meet. You might actually find yourself having fun. Good Luck!
