RACE 1

5-Sea Venture – Drops back to the level of his nose win three starts back off a no-chance trip @ Pocono, a dangerous stalker n popper in this match up

 

6-Honeys Dragon – Pegged this one last week when he rallied to nail it by a nose, inside may set him up for another, 11YO gelding is on his toes & loves the long stretch here

3-Mr Julian – Has gone right down the road enroute to back-to-back lifetime marks, held off the roughed up favorite last week & rewarded with an improved post

 

RACE 2

1-Texican – Trond simply took matters into his own hands, stole a :58.2 half & got the jump on the favorite Muscle High, draws better to take charge now brimming with confidence

 

6-Myammie Drama – Dropped out of NJSS action, took awhile to get going & made the chalk players sweat it out last week, filly takes on the boys third time Lasix & adds Gingras

 

4-Shivered – Converted a perfect two-hole ride & strode past the longshot TT Conway to post a new mark of 1:55.4, colt with Hambo aspirations draws inside again to show more

 

RACE 3

2-Rainbow Room – 8th foal out of the 2004 Horse of the Year & sister to Somwherovrarainbow, 1:48 [$1,342,848] was sensational in both qualifiers, she’s no doubt an exciting prospect

 

5-All On Top Hanover – $14,000 yearling from the first crop of Betterthancheddar, 1:48 [$1,634,314], both qualifiers were superb, couldn’t really ask for more from her

 

1-KJ’s Bekah – Sister to Forty Five Red, 1:50.1 [$582,274] & Miso Fast, 1:52.2 [$288,174], runner up to Rainbow Room in the latest trial lands the pole to stalk a monstrous pair

 

RACE 4

1-Yes Mickey – Has come back with strong form with the additional of trotting hopples, tangled with Long Tom & company in NJSS, hasn’t raced in three weeks, but draws the rail

 

9-Deacon Tony – Burke-tuned Hambo eligible definitely has some talent & potential, just missed to the highly ranked King On The Hill with a :27.1 last week, threat despite post ten

 

6-Achille Duharas – Obviously has to regroup off another miscue in his sophomore debut, previous qualifier was solid, colt flashed some ability at two, plus we’re dealing with Takter

 

RACE 5

9-Trolley – Developing 4YO was nosed out with a gallant effort in a Mohawk Graduate division, then romped to a new mark in the Tioga Downs leg, tough post here, but this a severe class drop

 

5-Victor Gio IT – Runner up in the 2016 Peter Haughton Memorial has easily gone two-for-two, Hambo prospect for Takter has matured, gained confidence & looks ready to step up further

 

1-Triumphant’s Chip – Steps back up in class, yet draws the rail fresh off two excellent efforts, 13-time winner last year owns some back class

 

RACE 6

5-Cufflink Hanover – Bounced back with a strong rally for third in a Graduate division @ Tioga Downs by closing into a :54.4 back half, a stakes caliber 4YO with upside

 

2-Market Share – 2012 Hambo Hero has no doubt regained his winning edge with two straight sterling rallies, the latest with Campbell & an improved post makes him a major threat again

 

6-In Secret – Picked up minor spoils with a wicked :26.2 here two starts back after missing the entire month of May, have to forgive the latest break @ Yonkers

 

RACE 7

1-Gold Medal Swan – No shame in a solid second to heavily favored Sweet Justice last week, gets another shot at this reduced level & draws the rail for his fourth start off a sick scratch

 

5-Sheer Flex – Didn’t exactly light the world on fire last week, but has been better recently & drops back down to a competitive level for a high percentage barn

 

6-Agrestores Comet – Has raced well in all three starts here, twice chased Victor Gio IT, a close fourth behind some Hambo prospects last week, gelding now tries a wide-open condition

 

RACE 8

8-Angel’s Pride – I have no idea where that 1:51 career best in NYSS @ Vernon Downs came from, but any semblance of that explosion makes her one to beat in this mixed bag

 

3-Let’s Have A Party – Followed her 1;52.3 romp @ Vernon Downs with a decent second here as the heavily beaten favorite, draws the same inside post for Team Alagna

 

10-Colorful Jasmine – Impressive first three wins this season, obviously wasn’t at her best in the NJSS Final, three weeks off & post ten are two major knocks, but has the talent to overcome

 

RACE 9

2-Keenan – 9YO gelding has made his presence felt in the GSY Amateur Series, can handle these on his best day & in line for a smooth stalking trip

 

7-Stealth Hanover – Lightly-raced 3YO gelding broke his maiden here back on 5-5, returns off two solid seconds @ Pocono & lands in a soft spot for The Matador

 

9-Hyway Marcus – Just one for 14 this season, but this consistent Team Harmon gelding was third again last week, not likely going to get the strong speed target he needs from post ten

 

RACE 10

2-Tac’s Delight – Trounced this kind from post six back on 3-24, classy 12YO missed a month prior to his last start @ Tioga where he got parked as the beaten favorite

 

1-Marty De Vie – Regressed into another break last week after a solid second with trotting hopples added two starts back, moves inside a very soft finale to atone

 

4-He’s An American – Turned in another encouraging third chasing standout I C Caviar last week, look for Scottie Z to have him forwardly placed again from an improved post
