RACE 1

5-Nascar Seelster – Rode a three-hole trip off a rated pace, caught briefly behind a gapping pocket sitter & finished well in :26.4 last week, now drops even further

 

2-Dependlebury A – Thought he may have been sitting on a big one last week & was out of striking position while a bit pace compromised, post two again to stalk within closer range

 

1-Mcclinchie – Has had virtually no chance with very slow starts in his last few, just two for his last 40, but with class & post relief he can’t be dismissed in this very evenly-matched opener

 

RACE 2

2-Western Redhot – Just 3 for his last 43, yet did offer plenty of late pace after a slow start from post nine last week, now moves inside & faces some easier opposition

 

6-JDS Brent N Sheree – Almost exploded the toteboard with a sudden late surge last week, nice acclimating mile & now makes his third start off a sick scratch

 

4-Stella’s Phella – Added spice to the trifecta when he stormed home @ 70-1 & was right there in a tight photo with JDS Brent N Sheree last week, same post to set up another stalk n pop

 

RACE 3

7-A Sweet Ride – Got stung setting a fast early pace in the Pocono comebacker, almost everything from this barn has sparked form & take note this is a fresh Ride in a wide-open field

 

6-Electrofire – Classy 12YO warhorse has picked up his game recently @ Monticello, just missed in two of his last three, knows his way around this oval & adds The Buckeye

 

5-In Rock We Trust – It looked like he may have been going in the right direction when he rallied for third fresh off the bench, can regain that form dropping to a rock bottom condition event

 

RACE 4

5-Blacklight – Well-bred colt for Diamond Creek with some stakes experience qualified with a sharp :26.3 & returns in a light N/W 2 match up for Team Takter’s Per Engblom

 

4-Vodka On the Beach – Tripped out to break his maiden fresh off the bench, then ran into a couple of standouts, beaten favorite draws well to stalk the speed or take charge

 

3-Can’t Be Better – Flashed a hint of late pace in a much-needed 3YO debut here & draws an improved post to show more at a price

 

RACE 5

1-Abbeylara – Drops back to the level of his four-race winning streak after being caught out of striking range last week off the latest claim, expect him to be forwardly placed from the rail

 

8-Atomic Rei – Added Gingras, tripped out & paid instant dividends fresh off the Nick Surick claim as the heavy favorite last week, the post is tougher, but there’s room for more

 

3-Oh My Joepa – Recent claim got going too late after a slow start from post nine last week, now looms as a price play with some class & post relief

 

RACE 6

3-Winning Linc – Pegged this boy @ 8-1 when he crushed by four with a new mark of 1:51.2 two starts back & draws better for his return to this level after trying the Preferred

 

1-Penzance Hanover – Been toiling in the Open @ Dover Downs, trading blows with Highalator, dangerous stalker arrives in form & lands the rail here in a competitive match up

 

2-Mcthriller – Katricia Adams has this gelding in career form winning two of his last three with slick drives by Corey Callahan, moves inside & back up in class off a new mark of 1:50.4

 

RACE 7

4-Poisonous – Sat the rail & once clear was doing some serious pacing through the lane in :26, gaining momentum on the comeback trail for a barn that has suddenly come bursting the scene

 

5-Whittaker N – Took his mark of 1:51.2 beating N/W $11,500 here back in early February, been buried in the Levy Series @ Yonkers, returns to the mile track in a softer spot

 

1-Sportsmanship – Roughed it first over & still held third in :27 last week, just missed in two previous efforts, back on the rail as a stalking threat in sharp form

 

RACE 8

3-Thefreedomfighter N – Stormed home off a hot pace to just miss in his debut here, then kicked home in a crisp :25.4 from an impossible spot, moves inside off two excellent acclimating miles

 

9-Declan Seelster – Was the star in the Sagamore Series @ Yonkers, nosed out with tough trip in that final, improving 4YO owns a win here & can overcome post nine with his tactical speed

 

8-Americanprimetime – Steps back up in class & draws a tougher post, but regained his confidence with that decisive score last week & capable of firing off the wings

 

RACE 9

3-JK Parlay – Just missed with a strong two-move effort from post eight last week, switches from claimers & draws well to capitalize on his solid form & faces question mark field

 

7-Quality Closer – Stormed home to upset with a mighty sweep two starts back, paced a :54.4 back half against better last week, sharp right now, a quality closer indeed with the right set up

 

4-Awesomeness – 1:51.2 winner here in the slop this season has cycled forward with a recent win @ Pocono, pace compromised from post ten last week & owns some back class

 

RACE 10

7-Dragon Time – Beaten favorite angled with a menacing move & came up just half a length shy in :26.1 last week, improving 4YO now makes his third start off the bench for Team Burke

 

4-Threeofthebest A – Returned to form recently, set a rated pace & was barely outsprinted two starts back, draws well back here for a high percentage barn 

 

2-Rough Odds – Dropped to this level, worked out an ideal second over trip & just missed in :25.4 last week, lands post two again to follow up in a competitive match up

 

RACE 11

2-Century Churchill – Regained his form with a lively effort @ Pocono last week, draws well back here, long overdue & finds a tailor made spot

 

3-Spaghetti Eddie – Beaten favorite when he got parked first over from the same post last week, just missed to the raging Four Staces before that, a sharp item in a camera-shy field

 

9-Major Leaguer – Hammered down to 2-1 favorite & promptly wired a weak bottom level field in his Big M debut, can blast off & keep it going despite a class hike & another outside assignment

 

RACE 12

7-Skip Jive – Kicked home in a crisp :26.3 to hit the board in his Big M debut last week, the new outfit has made an immediate impression & finds a prime spot with this one

 

3-Sword Of the Spirit – Gets some needed class & post relief, just missed in his previous start @ this level on 3-16, yet note his one for his last 38 record

 

1-Sunset Dreamer – Did well when he grinded gamely for the show spot in his prior start here on 3-16, a solid second as the beaten favorite @ Freehold last out & lands the rail again here

 

RACE 13

8-Magnum Mike – Beaten favorite just missed with one of his typical late surges last week, consistent veteran always a closing threat, so the tougher post isn’t much of a hindrance

 

3-Daylyn Horizon – Coming off a trouble-filled trip & just missed second once free of traffic last week, that was a much improved effort & rewarded with a better post

 

9-Ideal Candidate – Productive season so far for this steady 13YO, recent claim bounced back with a decent fourth with pace @ both ends last week, capable of blasting off for position
