Garnet Barnsdale's Flamboro Downs Selections: Sunday, November 21, 2021
Best Bet – (1) LADY TITAN – Race 5
Spot Play – (7) ROYALTYS ROCKET – Race 8
20-Cent Early Pick 5 – Race 1: 1,4,5/2,4/1,2/2,4/1,6 = $9.60
20-Cent Late Pick 5 – Race 6: 1,5/1,2/1,2,7/1,6/2,3,4 = $14.40

Race 1 —  (1) BLUEWATER BEACH is 8 to 1 in the morning line after winning easily here last week and, drawing best tonight, I’ll give her the call to repeat.  (4) EVAS BEST GIRL has hit her best stride in her past couple of starts, and she should be the main threat to the choice tonight, likely racing first up again; using.  (5) OUTLAWCALAMITYJANE retains driver Cullen, and she should have a much better chance tonight getting her nose back on the gate. She is another in with a chance.
Race 2 —  (2) WITCHES N ANGELS is the only class dropper from non-winners of three, and she could lead these all the way tonight.  (4) ATALANTA EXPRESS’ current form is good but keep in mind she is 2 for 28 lifetime before you back her at a short price.  (5) DENISE should get positioned near the front leaving the gate and hang around for a share.

Race 3 —  (1) INFINITY STONE moves back inside tonight, and you know he’ll be using rail advantage to try to go right down the road. He could prove tough to catch.  (2) DELAWARE projects to get another nice following trip, and he could be a pocket rocket in the lane; using.  (5) DORO SOGNO should pass a few of these late and take a share.  
Race 4 —  (4) PREMIER BETTINA has a good chance to take her sixth win of the year tonight, dropping to the bottom claiming level and picking up driver Coulter; top call.  (2) COME ON SUN gets post relief after producing a decent effort from post 7 last week. She should be the main danger.  (1) MISS READ is worth a look for the exotics starting from the rail.  
Race 5 —  This race will likely come down to another battle between  (1) LADY TITAN and  (6) INCREDIBLE HALLY. Nod goes to the former who holds the post position edge.  (2) TOM D BAKER should be good for a share racing near the front if he stays flat tonight.  (8) OH LINA is up against it starting from the widest post but she should pass some of these late to take a share.  (3) MIKE THE KNIGHT rarely misses a cheque and he should be part of the High-5 tonight.  
Race 6 —  (1) CAN DO IT ALL faces easier and draws the rail tonight. She will be the one to catch and beat as favorite.  (5) E L SUGAR was close here last week, but he ran his record of futility to 0 for 31. He can probably win here but I couldn’t take a short price.  (4) EPIC THRILL should get a share in this short field in an easier spot.   
Race 7 —  (1) NOTAWORD N comes off a strong win in Ottawa and he will no doubt look to control this race leaving from the rail. I’ll give him the nod.  (2) PAPARAZZI HANOVER is peaking right now for a barn that is running hot, and he is the one that the choice will have to dispose of; using.  (3) SIR GALAHAD should be good for another small share in this spot.
Race 8 —  (7) ROYALTYS ROCKET got the clean line that he needed after breaking in his debut and he trotted a good back 1/2. He gets a driver change now and I’ll give him the call to upset.  (2) THE PINBALL WIZARD had the choice behind him when he won here last week and he produced a big third 1/4 brush in that race. He should be the one to beat tonight.  (1) HALO ITS HEAVEN was no match for the choice last week, but she could go better here if the track is fast. She is another in with a chance.  
Race 9 —  (1) NO ANGEL here appeared to dislike the off-track last week when she made breaks. She can improve sharply tonight starting from the rail and she gets top billing.  (6) SEBASTIAN RAY looked good winning here when claimed, and he is the other one that I’ll use on multi-race tickets.  (2) I DA PRINCESS never misses the top three but she hasn’t won in a while. I’ll use her underneath here.  
Race 10 —  (4) THINKINGOFYOUBABE has won 20 of her last 56 races, but she was in over her head last week at Mohawk Park. She should rebound in this easier spot; top call.  (3) W C KENZIE COOKIE is worth a look shipping in and moving into Moreau’s barn. I’ll toss her on multi-race tickets.  (2) TAYDERTOTZZ gets post relief tonight and you know she’ll be leaving hard again. She isn’t without a chance in here.  (1) EATAAMS ELLIE never misses a cheque; using underneath.  (8) SCOTTISH MACH can pass a few of these and land in the bottom of the High-5.
