The Tuesday card from Zia Park features the Zia Park Princess, Zia Park Juvenile, Zia Park Distaff, and the Zia Park Sprint. The stakes have brought in some names from some of the bigger circuits.

Zia Park- Race 1

Post: 12:00 PM MT; $22k Maiden Claiming going 5 1/2 furlongs on dirt; Entries: 9

  • #8 I WIN LIKA GIRL (5-1) gets the top selection. She has races good enough to beat this group. This one could be a dangerous threat to get loose on the front end.
  • #9 COCKTAILWITHATWIST (9-5) has been really solid in recent starts and should be ready to run a big one here. This one has solid early pace figures in a race that looks to lack a ton of front running speed.
  • #7 ABSTRACT LILLY (3-1) has solid early pace figures in a race that looks to lack a ton of front running speed. This one comes into the contest in great form.
  • #4 VIPERS PRINCESS (6-1) should be part of the early pace in this spot. This one is a good bet to hit the board in this type of race.

Selections: 8 – 9 – 7 – 4
