PEAKE'S PICKS for SATURDAY EVENING JAN 20TH, 2018

RACE #6 (2) DOWNSHIFTER This gal needs to learn to break better. She starts out slow but really pours it on at the finish. In her last 19 starts she has hit the ticket 17 times, so she is racing well. Look for her to finish strong at the end again tonight...UPDATE: Up late for 2nd
RACE #9 (6) JOHN VALAZQUEZ Another top hound racing well. He comes off a Stakes win in The Inaugural 3 races back. He like's to be in front early and when he gets to the engine he is very tuff to catch. Look for him to beat this field and get back to winning ways. He has won 18 of his last 35 starts. UPDATE: Box To Wire, EASY WINNER
RACE #12 (1) TEMPEST Coming back into form. This gal has hit the board 24 of her last 37 trys. Tonight she catches the red blanket which she has not had for awhile. She should get a good break from this inside spot. Look for her to be on top at the finish...UPDATE: Rail was the key, EASY WINNER. Good Day at the track...

HORSES: Saturday Afternoon @ Tampa Race #8 The $125,000 Pasco Stakes (1) HE HATE ME This guy is coming off a 7 month layoff. He was unbeaten as a 2yr old winning both of his career starts. He opens his 3 yr old season in this stakes. Jock comes in from NY to ride. He has trained well for this and today he should start of this year with a win. Look for him to stalk the leaders and come running strong at the finish. Like his chances here against these..UPDATE: Maybe a little rusty, 2nd
