Race 8 – POST Time – 5:47 PM ET

Selections 6-1-2 Rating 2 stars

#6 Kinenos (5-1)-we will try to upset the 4-5 entry. Our top pick beat similar company over this course, going this same distance, three starts back while coming off a 2 month layoff then took on tougher stakes company in two straight. He is coming off a two month layoff again, drops in class, keeps Lezcano and should be a decent price.

#1 The Entry (4-5)– #1 Value Engineering-has been in the money in all 9 of his career starts with a 2-2-5 record including a 1-1-2 record from his four starts over this course and a 2-1-1 record from his 4 starts at this distance. He has never missed by more than two and a quarter lengths and is always the one to beat.

#1A Perjury Trap (4-5)-came off an 8 month layoff last out and rallied to get the money on the turf at Ellis Park. He is improving with every start and should come running late.

#2 Temple (9-2)-finished only ¾ of a length behind our second pick two back then a length behind that same rival last out. He is another who is improving and should be a decent price.

Wagers have different bet minimums. You can make a wager for as little as ten cents ($0.10) playing the Superfecta or $1 for a Win bet. Although these are the minimums, many guests wager more and $5, and $10 Win bets are quite common. NYRA also has designated windows for guests wagering a minimum of $50 per wager.

The track handicapper sets the morning line, which are the odds he believes the horses will be at post time. As money is wagered, the odds change continuously until post time, and are determined by the amount of money wagered on each horse.

Wagering at all NYRA tracks closes when the starting gate opens. Final odds cannot be posted until the race is in progress. There is a slight delay due to the high volume of last-minute wagering at simulcast sites across the nation as final odds are calculated by the totalisator system. No wagering site has the capability to accept bets after the start of any NYRA race.

The Internal Revenue Service requires reporting of payouts on wagers or group of identical wagers that exceed odds of 300 to 1 and pay in excess of $600. IRS regulations also require automatic 24% withholding on payouts that exceed $5,000. Please note that for non-US residents, IRS regulations require automatic withholding of 30% on wagers that exceed odds of 300 to 1 and pay in excess of $600. Windows designated for IRS winning tickets are located on all floors. Patrons must present a picture ID (driver’s license or non-driver’s state ID, federal, state, or city ID, passport, or NYRA ID).
