Thursday Big M Series finals …

Real nice few days of racing at M1 with the finals of the first set of winter series on tap. Thursday is the final for the White Ruffles and Super Bowl. Saturday is the final of the Clyde Hirt, Complex, and the Presidential for free for all pacers. Lets take a quick look at Thursdays …

First up is the Super Bowl final, which goes as race 5 on Thursday. I don’t see a standout in this one. I think a case could be made for any of the 10 that will head to the gate. #1 Lookin Ahead is two for two in the series, as is #5 Diamond Hunter. #7 Mr Principal might be the most talented in the field, but he is as likely to break as he is to trot. I like #6 Tropicana Ron. He comes out of the two best races in the series in my opinion and won last week like a good thing, holding off #7 Mr Principal. He has run well first over and cutting the fractions which should give Brennan options.

Next up is the White Ruffles final, which goes as race 6 Thursday. Unlike the Super Bowl, I think a stand out looms in this field. That would be #2A Thong Song. She is looking for a sweep and has been ultra impressive in both wins. Saddled with another tough post but she seems to be a few lengths better than this crowd. Biggest thread to Thong Song will most likely be #1B Orphan Annie who is also going for the sweep.
