E Z Larry is a go for Friday, August 11.
His race drew seven entrants and goes as Race 3, post time 7:30 p.m. The weather is expected to remain hot through next weekend, so racing at night should be comfortable.
As I said in yesterday’s email, E Z Larry’s workout Saturday morning went very well. He worked five furlongs in 1:00.80 (second fastest of eight at the distance) and that should have him ready to roll Friday. We’re also taking a significant drop in class, and I think we’re the horse to beat.
We’ll take a closer look at the race Wednesday, with analysis by Matt Dinerman.
Can’t think of a better way to begin Longacres Mile weekend than with a victory.
Here is the field for Friday’s Race 3 at Emerald Downs (maiden claiming, 3-year-olds, 5 1/2 furlongs, claiming price $8,000): 1-Parker’s Prince, Rocco Bowen, 122 lbs; 2-Myt Fine, Kevin Orozco ,119; 3-Trust in the Stars, Julien Couton, 122; 4-Galeforce Nine, Erick Lopez, 122; 5-E Z Larry, Isaias Enriquez, 122; 6-Snow Zone, Eswan Flores, 122; 7-Buckbeak, Luis Gonzalez, 122.
