Horse Racing –  Falls City Handicap

Here are the entrants into this race scheduled for 11/25/21 with a 4:22 PM Post time ET.

Crystal Ball– sired by Malibu Moon and trained by Rudolphe Brissett, is a 4-year old filly that has a progeny going back to Seattle Slew. In it last race, Crystal Ball finished 4th in the 2021 Spinster. This horse in not likely to be the favorite but could has some value further down the ticket.

Cheetara– sired by Daddy Long Legs and trained by Ignacio Correas IV, this horse was foaled on August 23, 2017 and finished 3rd in the CD AlwOC. Look for this horse to finish out of the money.

High Regard– sired by Will Take Charge an trained by Victorio Oliver and was a 6th place finished in the Locust Grove in its last race.  Probably slightly better than Cheetara and a slim chance to finish in the money.

Envoutante– was sired by Uncle Mo and is trained by Kenneth McPeek. The 4 year-0ld filly finished 5th in the 2021 Spinster in its last time out.

Army Wife– sired by Declaration of Independence was 3rd in the 2021 Cotillion and is trained by Michael J.Maker. This horse is likely to be the odds on favorite to in this race.

Bonny South – sired by Munnings and trained by Brad Cox finished 3rd in the 2021 Spinster in its last race. This horse can win it and will likely have the second best odds to win.

Audrey’s Time- also sired by Uncle Mo is expected to be the weakest horse in this contest. Trained by Neil Pressin, the horse came out 10th in the Kee Allow.
