Best bets from Will Rogers Downs on Wednesday



Nick Shiambouros struck again when his best bet Satin Finish won easily. Nick heads back to Will Rogers Downs with two more selections…

Oso Prieto to repeat

Race 8 22:16 Will Rogers Downs – Oso Prieto

Oso Prieto should go close in this $7.5 non-winner of two on the main track.

This gelding beat Shannon’s Quest in great style in a $7.5 maiden claimer earlier this month. Despite missing the break, he was driven in to the lead and never looked back. This was a super effort and should have a lot more to offer. Trainer Ray Ashford is in cracking form with a 34% strike rate, and the talented Curtis Kimes rides back for connections. Anything around 3.02/1 will do.

Quick Calisia too fast

Race 10 23:12 Will Rogers Downs – Quick Calisia

Quick Calisia is my idea of the winner of this $7.5k non-winner of three on the main track.

This filly beat Hale’s Angel in a $7.5k non-winner of two last month. She was caught in a speed duel, but found plenty in the closing stages to win with authority. The runner-up has since won giving the form a nice boost. She has run creditably against better and has a class edge. Hopefully this will be another winner for the in form Ray Ashford stable. Anything around her morning line of 2.915/8 will do.
