Southland preview - Saturday evening, January 16
Welcome to another Saturday 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 Saturday, MoneyMaker Mike has chosen some top grade greyhounds that have shown talent and consistency and included in the picks are two recent transfers to the Southland track who ran very well at their old tracks. Good luck to all and thanks for reading.
Race 9 - 583 yards - Grade B - CHASMO'S COLEMAN - 7 box - He has recently transferred from the Orange Park track to Southland and ran third in his only schooling race before giving two solid finishes in his official starts, running 3rd and then 2nd. With his mid-track running style and good rush along with a strong closing move well worth a shot here. I will play the 7 with 1/4/5/8 in quinielas and tri's.
Race13- 583 yards - Grade AA - SE TALI SUNDANCE - 5 box - He's going after his 3rd straight win and fourth in his last six races and I will stay with him to continue his hot streak here. Has tons of early speed to go along with his mid to wide running style and I'll key him in this one, playing the 5 with the 1/3/7/8.
Race15- 583 yards - Grade A - FIESTA MERCURY - 8 box - Another recent transfer, this time from Derby Lane. A very talented and consistent young greyhound as evidenced by his 33 top four finishes in 44 races at the St. Pete track which included 19 wins. This is his first official race at Southland after looking good in his only schooling race where he finished a close 3rd and I look for a big effort here. My play here is the 8 with the 2/4/5/6.
