It's 10 dashes slated for this Saturday afternoon at Century Downs Racetrack and Casino. Two $ .20 PICK 5 plays (Race's 1 and 6) + a pair of $1 PICK 4 opportunities (Race's 3 and 7) highlight the wagering menu. A must-play wager, on the day, will be the Race 1 PICK 5 with a carryover of $3,003 to chase after - it's a non-jackpot bet, with a low 15% takeout, so maybe give it some thought and take a shot...

Outlaw Blue Isle will be trying for her third straight win in Race 7 on the day. The Fun For Fans-owned mare is racing for the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation, this month, with a portion of her winnings being donated to that charity. Rod Starkewski trains the daughter of Blue Burner, while Jamie Gray handles the driving duties. Bumping up in class, this week, she's been listed as the morning line favourite and has a great shot at beginning the Late PICK 4.

Best of luck to all racing and playing on the day!

Early PICK 5 Analysis - $3,003.02 Carryover

Race 1

  • 1 TAGORAS he's never been better than he is right now; for sure a must play to begin this PICK 5 carryover!
  • 6 SHOW STOP was stung to the quarter last week and gave up late; more than capable of bouncing back here.

Race 2

  • 1 SUNSET RIDER will be a price and if he can work out a good trip - he may be your upset factor with these.
  • 2 TWO TO TEN closed up very well in his latest to be a solid second; he'll have Giesbrecht in the bike today.
  • 5 LITIZOR comes in off a life best win, but will now face tougher; he's a player here with his current form.
  • 8 HAD A HARD HANDLE was an easy winner against most of these last time; a much tougher post this week.
  • 9 ROCKIN SHADOW a solid shooter at this level and a likely favourite as well; he'll just need that 'A' game.

Race 3

  • 2 HF FLOWER a decent runner-up finish at a huge price last time; her early speed should have her in play.
  • 5 DIVAS BLACK GOLD gets a much better post to work and she's fitting in well; we love her chances here.

Race 4

  • 2 JIM STRIKESITRICH is always in the hunt and will be a must play again; he took his life best mark in latest.
  • 3 BONUS ROUND has been really sharp in recent starts; he's looking like a rock solid threat again this week.

Race 5

  • 1 JEDI TRICKS was a sharp winner 3 back and now gets the rail to work with; the likely favourite in here.
  • 2 LIL SCREAMER was able to work out a great journey in her latest and grabbed a nice second; beware!
  • 5 BEARCAT ROMI finished very strong last week to move from last to third; she'll be much closer this time.
