The Track Phantom's Play of the Day for Monday is the third race at Canterbury Park, a $28,000 maiden special weight for 3-year-olds and up. A field of nine will go 7 1/2 furlongs on the turf course. Post time is 2:43 ET, 11:43 PT.
Here are the Track Phantom's selections for the race:
8 SUMMER TIGER 5-2
9 MALIBU MAN 9-2
2 GOING FOR MILES 4-1
5 SHOCK THE CLOCK 7-2
#8 SUMMER TIGER
Might be a standout if this race was on dirt. Can't find a lot of turf in the pedigree. However, the connections are absolutely on fire right now and this one was closing well in a strong MSW at OP. Trainer won 9 straight training titles before last year. He means business this year.
#9 MALIBU MAN
This one does have a fair amount of turf breeding. Diodoro wins at a high percentage with these owners. Debut can't be taken seriously as he was 9-1 and didn't fire on the off-track. Treat like a 1st timer.
