SHOW Parlay Play of the Day:  $30 on Nuit de Chance  (#9; 10th race; 2-1) is a hard hitting 10-year-old  mare who rarely fails to hit the board. These 5 furlong grass sprints are her specialty and gets reunited with jock Sarah Rook who will certainly get her out to the front and make all of her rivals try to catch her.

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 22 days remaining in the meet. You might actually find yourself having fun. Good Luck!
