MIKE HEADS HASTINGS PREVIEW FOR SATURDAY

SATURDAY JULY 22 PREVIEW

 

Racing resumes today at Hastings Racecourse with an eight race program that will feature seven $25,000 claiming older horses at a mile and a sixteenth in race eight. The day is headlined by the Deighton Cup which is a large group of stylishly clad Vancouverites that will be rocking in the Marquee Tent which is located at the head of the stretch.

On the rail in the main event is the Hastings Racing Club’s popular stable star SQUARE DANCER who is a multiple stakes winner that has had a tough start to his 2017 season. He is in against the easiest competition since arriving in Vancouver and will likely go off the betting choice. David Lopez gets the call from Steve Henson.

Lorie and Kristy Henson and Courtney Vazquez’s GOLD TREASURE was fourth at this same level last time out beaten about four lengths. There appears to be a fair amount of speed in the lineup which will help his chances. Romario Saunders will be in the tack for Steve Henson.

Russ and Lois Bennett’s BRASS AND GOLD was a solid third in his last race at this tag and was beaten only by a length and a quarter for all the money. He is a consistent eight year old that seems a bit better at this longer trip. Enrique Gonzalez will be at the controls for trainer Barbara Heads.

The Telford Farms’ PS DIAMOND CUTTER got his third career victory at the conditional non-three lifetime $16,000 level in his last. He is a huge son of Kentucky Derby winner Grindstone that is on the improve. He was a comfortable winner and deserves a shot in this tougher spot. Silvino Morales has been aboard for two of his victories and he will return to the saddle for Cindy Krasner.

Cameron Hill’s SUSAN’S DAY is a mare tackling the boys this afternoon. She was entered in a filly and mare race that failed to fill going long so Hall-of-Fame trainer Dave Forster is giving her a shot against her male counterparts. She turned in a couple of good efforts going this trip last year and will be a pace presence today. Amadeo Perez gets the call.

Craig MacPherson’s BLUEGRASS ANGUS has been razor sharp of late and just missed winning at this same level and distance. He should get a perfect trip sitting on or near the lead which will give him every shot to win. Leading rider Richard Hamel is at the controls.

Mark and Patti Lesage’s recent claim NEVERADOUBT is up in class after his third place run at the $12,500 level. He was involved in a wicked pace duel last time which cost him as he ended up third. He has some back-class and might fit at this level with the right trip. He will be ridden by Antonio Reyes for trainer Barbara Heads.

The Saturday card begins at 1:50 p.m. and a reminder that racing continues on Sunday with a seven race program that also gets underway at 1:50 p.m. This will be the last Saturday race day until September so check the racing calendar on the hastingsracecourse.com website for race dates through the month of August. The first Friday Night Live card will be next Friday, July 28th with a 7:00 p.m. first post.
