Best bets from Turf Paradise on Tuesday



Nick Shiambouros heads back to Turf Paradise with two more selections…

Time for Gold to strike

Race 1 19:55 Turf Paradise – Time for Gold

Time for Gold is an interesting runner in this allowance race on the main track.

This Washington State bred filly won a minor Stakes race at Emerald Downs last August. She made most of the running, and was in complete control in the closing stages. Trainer Frank Lucarelli put this nice filly away, and makes her three-year-old debut today. She has been working steadily ahead of this assignment, and should be ready to do herself justice. I think she could have a productive year and recommend backing her at her Morning Line price of 3.55/2.

Time to toast Tequila Mary

Race 6 22:14 Turf Paradise – Tequila Mary

I am going to stick with Tequila Mary in this $10k optional claimer on the turf course.

This mare beat Dianka over this course last month. She took the lead inside the final furlong, and was well on top at the finish. This was her second victory over the Turf Paradise oval this year and comes in to this race in super form. Trainer Don Buckner is having a great meeting with limited runners. He has sent out five winners from nine starters. The talented Keivan Serrano rides back for connections. I think she has more to offer, and recommend backing her at her Morning Line price of 4.57/2 on the exchange.
