1         We Go Way Back                      Owned by Mo Mentum Farm               Boulanger G

Last race he finished fifth on the lawn, so we are going to throw that race out.  Prior to that race he raced at todays distance in the Minaret Stakes where he finished eighth.  He only has one win at a sprint out of his total of 3 career wins.  Owner Mo Mentum Farm is trying new things to see if he can wake up this four year old filly.  She and one other carry top weight of 123.

2         Protection                                 Owned by Team 7 Illusions                   Rainford M

Finished third in the Fury Stakes at seven furlongs here at WO on May 3 which was just 15 days ago.  She shortens up to 6 furlongs today.  Will drop 4 pounds off his last weight in that race.  Her only wins comes last October as a 2 year old at PM against Maiden Special Weights for a purse of $6.00.  Still has a lot to prove.

3        Eastern Summertime             Owned by Captinj                                    Garcia Alan

Finished 9th in the Grade II Bessar here in November.  Comes off her winter break and makes her debut for 2015 against this small group.  Prior to that race she won against Allowance Non Winners of 3 Lifetime right here at WO.  Shortens up a furlong today, and looks at trying to get back into things, carries top weight of 123.

4        Whats A Weeken Q                   Owned by Rouge River Stables          Contreras L

Claimed in January at GG for $14.00 where she finished second on the lawn in a mile on the sod.  Debuted 3 months later at SA against $35.00 Claimers where she pulled off a 1/2 length win going today’s distance.  Owner Rouge River Stables steps her up again, but this time trying her luck against ON Breds.  I must say not a bad move for this 3 year old filly who sneaks in at a weight of 118.

Iwin picks: 3/4/2

The Tout picks:3/2/1

Until next time this is Iwin signing off!
