The Grade 3 Robert Dick Memorial is an interesting 11 furlong race today at Delaware Park and the longshot we’re most interested in comes out of two 8.5 furlong races.
Here is the Eatontown, run last month at Monmouth going 1 1/16 miles.
The fourth place finisher in that race was Tricky Escape (#14 in that race). Pick it up at the 1 minute mark when she makes a few quick bursts through inside around the far turn, only to get shut off and shuffled back at the top of the lane when it appeared she had some horse. Tricky Escape then came on again, and was moving very well late behind an impressive Chad Brown winner, Grand Jete.
Obviously, we don’t know if #2 Tricky Escape (10-1) can go the 11 furlongs she’ll need to today, but there aren’t any world-beaters in this race and she’s worth a shot at a big price to upset the Robert Dick Memorial.
We’ll use with #9 Paige, #6 Guilty Twelve, and #4 Zipessa (who I don’t think is best at the distance but may be the best horse).
