Tiene Mucho Blanco Has Been White-Hot
The speedy paint Tiene Mucho Blanco will try for his third win in a row against a field of eight in tonight’s $27,450 Town Policy Handicap at 350 yards.
Owned by Jeff Pitcher and trained by Paul Jones, who is well in front of runner-up Blane Schvaneveldt in the standings, Tiene Mucho Blanco has been dominant in his last two victories.
The 3-year-old gelding won the Dillingham and Super Bowl Handicaps in succession, and his time in the Super Bowl Handicap was the second fastest of the season at 550 yards.
While Tiene Mucho Blanco has been hot, Classic Sassy Chic will be trying to end a four-race losing streak. The owner of the world record for tonight’s distance (17.13 seconds), she will break from the rail under jockey Eddie Garcia.
Mongoose Jet Eye, Chicks Jet Set Baby, Dale Badon, Resist, Red Hot Blitzer, Special Cartel and I Ought To Be First round out the field for the Town Policy, which is a Grade III.
The picks: 1. Storm Run. 2. Hidden Path. 3. Chicks Corona. 4. Zoras. 5. El Aguilio. 6. Bandolen. 7. Really Western. 8. Tiene Mucho Blanco. 9. Awsome Chicken.
Four! Use Storm Run, Jus Jiggin and Parlay Guy in the first, single Hidden Path in the second, all in the third and single the Zoras-All Virtue entry in the fourth.
Shots in the dark: Drivers Seat had a rough trip in his last and could prove dangerous with clear sailing in the fifth. Safe Harbor lost all chance at the break and shortens up in the sixth.
