Recapping this brilliant performance at Laurel Park from Saturday, October 13th had 6 winners from 11 races (2 Top Selections; pay-offs shown in BOLD type) having $2 WIN pay-offs of $2.60 (4th race), $8.40 (5th), $5.80 (6th), $7.20 (7th), $8.80 (8th), and $11.00 (11th).

The BEST BET of the Day (6 2-1-1) was sent-off the 3-1 second betting choice, dueled for the lead throughout the first 5/8 mile but tired badly in the stretch to finish last (6th).

The LONGSHOT PICK (6 2-0-0) turned into a no play as Nokaze was a scratch.

For Saturday races the weather forecast calls for sunny skies, with just a 10% chance of precipitation so there should be a FAST MAIN TRACK and FIRM TURF.
