3-Farsetti Hanover – Liked the way he controlled his first baby race & sprinted off in a sharp :27.1, then put forth another solid effort for Team Miller & draws well for his first asking


5-Godspell Hall – Excellent efforts in both trials for trainer Tony Alagna, $120,000 yearling whose dam is a sister to Godiva Hall, 1:53.3 [$808,008], deserves a long look in this intriguing opener


1-Hill Street – $180,000 Muscle Hill for Jimmy Takter, dam is a sister to Triple Crown champion

Glidemaster, won his first qualifier with a nice late burst, flashed some speed in the second



3-Be Bop Sally – Cruised wire-to-wire & uncontested in the first leg last week as the heavy favorite & takes on the same crew, from the first crop of Kentucky Futurity winner Wishing Stone


5-Princess Marxxx – This filly showed stark improvement in her career debut when Be Bop Sally was allowed to steal the pace & sprint off, figures to have even more to offer this time


4-Diamondstone US – Scratched sick from her first start last week, previous baby races were okay, maternal line has Pizza Dolce, 1:52.4 [$668,824]



1A-Winneress – Smedshammer trainee tighter now & on the improve, chased a next out winner in Muscle High last time, tougher draw, yet retains Tetrick


5-Yes Mickey – Finished second to highly-regarded Long Tom in NJSS & fourth in that final, just missed to a well-rated Achille Duharas last out, gelding seems on the verge of breaking through


4-Wutan – Takter trainee flashed some talent as a freshman, faded behind Yes Mickey in his second start off the bench, looking for further improvement with Hambo aspirations



3-Unforgetable – Brittany Farms bred son of Cantab Hall won his first trial with trot at both ends, the chased a Takter standout Wolfgang in :27.2, Tony Alagna no doubt has a nice one here


2-Bautista – Jimmy Takter-tuned Muscle Hill rookie picture perfect three-for-three, romped in his opener @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & draws inside with a bright future


6-Story Time Hanover – Another Takter diamond in the rough tripped out to win his second baby race, $410,000 yearling whose dam is a sister to NYSS champ Dejarmbro, 1:52.2 [$1,137,285]



4-Southwind Cobra – Team Burke Hambo hopeful with a mark of 1:53.3 at two, fringe player against top colts this season, freshened with a solid qualifier & faces a field full of question marks


7-Muscle High – Draws a tough post assignment, yet comes off back-to-back front end masterpieces by John Campbell, this Toscano-tuned gelding has found his best stride


2-Agrestores Comet – Broke through here with a gutsy effort two starts back, then chased a well-rated drop down favorite Muscle Diamond last week, pushes off from the rail with high marks



1A-Gural Hanover – Utilized his speed to score back-to-back wins here recently & lowered his mark to 1:51, second in a world record mile on 6-9, demanding draw off a break @ Yonkers, heads a strong entry


6-Tuonoblu Rex – Caused quite a buzz winning his US debut here & first three starts on these shores before the break in the Maxie Lee, bounced back with a nice second @ Pocono


7-JL Cruze – King Cruze looked like his old self with a speedy score in 1:51 here three starts back, then finished a solid second in the Maxie Lee, have to forgive the rare break in the Charlie Hill, but now the concern is the 27-day layoff & outside assignment



7-Walk Two Moons –Very consistent 4YO has thrived on the Yonkers half-miler using here controlling speed, can easily see her firing out for command & strong in the win column


8-Dandy’s Beauty – Nice claim by Eric Abbatiello lowered her mark to 1:50.1 three starts back, shuffled & hit the board last week chasing the classy Penpal, a threat despite post nine


6-Abbijade Hanover – Team Burke trainee brushed n crushed at a lower level @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, then was left with too much to do here last week, can outkick this wide-open crew



5-Live Laugh Love – Sister to 2017 Hambletonian prospect Enterprise won her second baby race with an eye-catching :27.2 & rates top billing in a very competitive division


3-Mooshka Stride – First foal out of the two-time Dan Patch Award winner Check Me Out, cruised in her first baby race, then sprinted home :27.1, draws inside with major upside


8-Hey Blondie – First foal out of a sister to the great Muscle Hill, recovered from a break to win her first qualifier, then a runner up to Live Laugh Love, early speed overcomes post eight



8-Bella Glos – Dam is a sister to a pair of 1:51.1 performers, Glidemaster & Canepa Hanover, won both baby races for Takter with strong finishes, the latest in :27.2


2-Supergirl Riley – Sister to Muscle Hustle, 1:52.2 [$198,568], two-for-two in baby races here, the latest with trot to spare & draws inside, looks like the one to knock off


10-Strawberry Hanover – Sister to Superstar Hanover, 1:53.2 [$517,731] went all the way in her lone qualifier for Team Orange Crush, Katz & Libfeld, worth a long look despite post ten



7-Michael’s Wild Boy – Gelding made it two wins in his last three with a gutsy first over upset last week, steps up & another demanding draw, yet retains Eric Abbatiello


1-Landonfitz – Trounced them a notch below this back on 6-9, then twice hit the board against these before then early miscue @ Goshen, returns to the mile track with the rail


2-Pine Tab – Brushed n crushed them @ Goshen with Hannah Miller off a game second here to War Cry Hall, Nick Surick trainee draws inside on his toes



2-Traffic Jam – Lightly-raced 3YO makes her fourth start off the bench after tightening up in typically patient Pat Lachance fashion, draws well in a finale ripe for the taking


8-Know It All – Gets at least a double class drop after chasing standout Penpal last week, she’s long overdue, but will need a speed set up in a paceless race on paper


9-Springforth – Just one for 15 this season, overmatched in her Big M debut, which came off just two days rest, here previous work @ Harrington worth noting, tough post assignment
