RACE 1

6-Tech Titan – Grinded gamely & just missed to Fiji despite the tough trip, eligible to be even better in his third start off a sick scratch for Team Svanstedt 

 

7-Fiji – Picked up Joe Lee, brushed & bottomed them out for a new mark of 1:54 two weeks ago, Eric Abbatiello trainee tough to deny on a form spree right now

 

2-Multitaskr Hanover – Beaten favorite once again paid the price for a slow start while pace compromised, draws better to reach within closer striking range

 

RACE 2

2-Zephyr Kronos – Italian-bred son of $5 million French horse Ready Cash continues to learn his lessons in the Takter Hambo battalion, pace compromised & flew home in a sizzling :26.2, a diamond in the rough

 

4-U Need Stones – Exits the NJSS Series with breaks in two of his last three, Team Burke gelding has shown the talent & controlling speed, just needs to iron things out

 

5-Dawson Springs – Tony Alagna Hambo prospect looked promising qualifying here & finished third in PASS, now must rebound off a miscue to keep his hopes alive

 

RACE 3

7-Quantum Kemp – Brother to 2015 Hambo champ Trixton forced wide & just missed as the beaten favorite in his second start this season, yet another Hambo sleeper for Team Takter

 

4-Eurobond – Hambo hopeful by French stallion Love You sat a two-hole & broke turning for home off an even fourth in his 3YO debut, appears to have the talent & speed to rebound 

 

6-Cash Calf – Bounced back to win her second qualifier with a nice late burst, Alagna trainee faces a more demanding draw, yet eligible to step up in a wide-open field

 

RACE 4

6-Threedee Delight A – Ran into a headstrong winner in her comeback for her new trainer Scott Di Domenico, has a big chance to claim a new lease on life in this soft match up 

 

5-Daenerys Hanover – Only took two starts for the barn change to Bruce Lauer to kick home for a 

new mark of 1:54.2 @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, looking for further improvement on the mile track

 

7-Clara Bea – Suddenly came to life, shook loose with a big late burst & blew by the favorite Cheap Thrills for the upset last week, moves outside to complicate her repeat attempt

 

RACE 5

4-Go Byem – No doubt needed his first start back against the classier Double L Lindy & Pinkman, drops into a prime spot, retains The Bionic Man, draws well & note the barn change

 

8-Zlatan – Open winner @ Saratoga this season plagued by sick scratches recently, asssinged the outside, but gets some class relief off a needed start chasing standout Double L Lindy

 

5-Shady Mccoy – Blowout winner two starts back & runner up to big favorite Crazeshana last week gives Eric Abbatiello a big chance in this toss up field

 

RACE 6

1-Terror At Night – Open winner in Delaware this season gearing up on the comeback trail, a solid second in her last two, draws inside to anchor a strong entry

 

7-Rockin Praline – Saved ground, angled & exploded home to just miss in :26 last week, tougher post, but look for more in her third start off the bench

 

1A-Kaitlyn N – Got on a roll in Delaware & now ships in fresh off a new mark of 1:52 @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, part of a formidable entry

 

RACE 7

6-Princess Holly N – Lightly-raced 4YO ships in after winning her first two US starts sandwiched around a sick scratch, looks like this NZ bred has speed, versatility & upside

 

4-Apothic – Promising Art Major filly graduated to good showings in NYSS, her latest against Dan Patch award winner Youaremycandygirl, draws well make a strong impression here

 

7-Mach The Cut – Intriguing shipper kicked off her 4YO season with two straight blowouts @ Mohawk, then broke in her next two, arrives in a tailor made spot

 

RACE 8

7-King Cast – Took another serious shot at this lower condition & got nosed out by Clifton Beach last week, more demanding post & one for 19 record this season to consider

 

5-Mr Protab – Forced to grind first over & settled for minor spoils again, in line to work out a smoother stalking trip from a midpack draw in a real wide-open field

 

8-Clifton Beach – Made an immediate transition to the mile track with a late surge, nose decision & new mark of 1:56.1 last week, tougher post puts him at the mercy of pace & trip

 

RACE 9

3-Sun Shines Bright – Regally bred Takter-tuned filly went all the way in her latest qualifier, holding off a Takter Hambo prospect, draws well & lands in a soft spot for her debut

 

4-Hurrikane Empress – Hit the board in all three NJSS events, capable of controlling speed, draws well, clearly the class of the field, but faces a potential Takter monster

 

8-Ideal Life – Was a well-driven upsetter in a sparkling debut for Steve Smith & Ross Croghan, taps into her obvious upside from a tougher starting position here
