Handicapping the Meadowlands Pick 5 Carryover (October 17)

The Meadowlands has a double pick 5 carryover this afternoon, and Gregory Edwards has some selections and thoughts that might help you with your handicapping.

After Jackie Davis booted home two in-a-row, lighting up the Big M board at 70-1 and 9-1, there will be a double pick 5 carryover of $48,106.06 Monday 10/17.  Here’s some horses I’d consider on a ticket.

Quick note: I am disappointed that a hard-knocking $800k pro, Compliance Officer, has not been retired; instead he's entered at the Meadowlands 10/18  for bottom level 5k.  Reach out to Castle Village Farms if you can help

Race 2:

#3 Lucky G back on the scene after packing it in midway at Saratoga.  Drops into a very comfortable spot while entering top form cycle.  Horse showing improved works under new trainer Perri, capped by 10/12 3f 36.4.  Hernandez doing well here with limited mounts. 
#4 Game Night goes first-time turf, which gives us some ceiling.  Uske a rider who always gives her all and is due for a photo at the Big M.  Simon/Uske a connection to note.
#9 Let’s Go G Men - Keeps Bocachica for the stretch out.  Flat sprint form into a route always a solid angle. 

Race 3:

#2  Hannibal Lecter seems to struggle with staying on the track, but now shows a nice series of works Sept-Oct capped by bullet 35.4 10/12.  Drop in class to lowest level and move from NY a nice mix
#8 Supersecret keeps talented apprentice Castrenze.  Delaware turf sprints very competitive   Connections frequently hook up for the score
#3 Red Creme drops significantly today and will be difficult to ignore.  Jacobson horses almost unpredictable as to form, but clearly the one to beat.

Race 4:

If I was going to the the “ALL” button it would be here.  Deep and intriguing field.

#1 Maya Elizabeth draws Jeremy Rose out to Jersey for the repeat.  Drops in class and stretches out to preferred distance.  Speedy horse can take max advantage of the #1 post
#6 Our Sweet Legacy gets quality Penn rider Rodriguez to travel in.  Goes turf for only the 2nd time but has sneaky good pedigree backed by good poly form.  Last race on dirt and against much tougher the kind of line that guarantees outrunning a big price when back to preferred surface today.
#7 Rhythm Queen Drops to lowest level for sharp turf claiming trainer Cibelli.  Absence of Paco Lopez today makes Bocachica the top rider of Meadowlands meet and gets the call today.

Race 5:

#8 Ocala Jim enters this race as the horse in best form, and that's a typical winner's profile for the starter allowance class. 
#3 Celebrity Warrior also comes in on top form and continued solid workouts back that up

Race 6:

#9 Shining America Stretches out off flat sprint form so look for this one to pop going long. 
#3 Juliets Key ships in for Delaware and gets a positive trainer change to Simoff.  A repeat of last effort, combined with drop, could be enough. 
#7 Vale Ridge gets my new favorite apprentice Castrenze, see above, drops in class for live connections
