SOUTHLAND preview - Friday evening, January 15
Welcome to another Friday evening program of highly entertaining and exciting greyhound racing at Southland as there are 18 races on tap on the card for your viewing and wagering pleasure. For the picks Friday, MoneyMaker Mike will change strategies from picking top grade greyhounds that have been running strong and instead go with some upset specials that have had some trouble as of late but still have the possibility to pay very well. Good luck to all and thanks for reading.
Race 2 - 660 yards - Grade A - CTW JOLLY ROGERS - 7 box - Trouble last time out but in the race before that was a winner pulling away from the field. He's had the 3/4/5 boxes in his last six races so I'm hoping that this seven box starting position helps him find some clear running room in which to challenge for a nice money finish. I will play the 7 with the 2/4/6/8 in quinielas and tri's.
Race 9 - 660 yards - Grade D - CBJ SEVENUP - 8 box - Post position gives him a shot at a money finish as his mid to wide running style and early speed should give him an edge in this race. I'll play the 8 with the 1/4/5/6.
Race11- 703 yards - Grade A - GS SIDNEY - 8 box - She's overdue for a win and it could come here as she always gives a good effort. This outside box position should help her avoid early trouble and get in position to make a late run at the leaders down the stretch. I will play the 8 with the 3/4/6/7.
MoneyMaker Mike's longshot pick
Race 7 - 583 yards - Grade C - LIMBAUGH - 3 box
