Turf Paradise // Race 4 // allowance
#1 Found My Ball (5-2 ML) // 25% Win Projection
#4 I Am Freaky Fast (7-2 ML) // 20% Win Projection

Comments: Couple of logical players separate a bit from the four others in this field who are clumped between 12-15%.

Turf Paradise // Race 5 // $60,000 Luke Krutybosch Stakes
#8 Lite Ranchin Kid (7-2 ML) // 28% Win Projection
#1 Sharp Lorenzo (3-1 ML) // 22% Win Projection

Comments: Top pair rate 11 points or more higher than the others and are top two morning-line choices. It’s a formful start on a focused ticket through two legs.

Turf Paradise // Race 6 // starter-optional claiming
#2 Criminal Record (5-1 ML) // 29% Win Projection

Comments: Clear-cut single at a very attractive price in the morning line at 5-1, #2 Criminal Record rates 13 points higher than any of his other six rivals.

Turf Paradise // Race 7 // claiming
#1 Gopher Gold (7-2 ML) // 24% Win Projection
#4 Last Martini (3-1 ML) // 21% Win Projection
#5 Mad Luther (5-1 ML) // 16% Win Projection
#6 East Rand (5-2 ML) // 15% Win Projection

Comments: Field of 7 might require some depth, but smaller budgets and more focused tickets could stick with the top pair only, which would eliminate the morning line favorite among the cuts.

Turf Paradise // Race 8 // maiden-optional claiming
#4 Northern Linchpin (5-1 ML) // 29% Win Projection

Comments: Not only does #4 Northern Linchpin have the biggest spread of 15 points to the competition compared to any other race in the pick 5 today, but his six rivals are nearly inseparable between 10-14% each. This is clearly another single according to the algorithm.
