Brad McCallum's Truro Raceway picks for Dec. 8.
Brad McCallum’s race picks for the 11-dash harness racing card on Dec. 8 at Truro Raceway:
This is a pretty light class for competition and could make it a good place for Pic Your Flight to get his toes wet and likely even get his first win.
It has been a while since Nukamotion has found the winner’s circle. She raced well last week and her competition will be going a speed she can handle.
If PH Powerful can stay on pace she has more than enough ability to win against most $2,000 claimers, especially this group.
Bobs Ideal was an impressive winner last week. His only competition is Business Time, who is just returning after a short layoff.
I will go with Lady Mccardle again this week to win in the last strides over There Paid For.
Nakai Hanover is coming back after a few weeks of but has the back class to handle this competition, if he is prepped.
There might be some early speed in this race. Any one of the inside four horses can win. It might be Hushs Funny Girl’s turn to get her picture taken.
This will likely be the most competitive race of the day, but I think Bo Butler will use the rail to his advantage.
Lets Make Ideal was a winner in a lower class last week but has the capability of keeping most of these horses behind him at the wire.
Schooner scorched the track last week in a blistering 1:54.3 to be the fastest horse to ever race in the Maritimes in December. To put that effort in perspective, he would have only been beat in five races all year with that time.
The last race of the day sees Stoveonfire drop down a class and with a good trip behind Cavallo Frosty should have enough at the wire to get by him.
Longshot with a chance – Michelles Romance in Race 6
Safe Bet of the day – Bo Butler in Race 8
