RACE 1

5-Jackamino – Wired a N/W 3 field with the mile of his life @ Harrah’s Philadelphia in his second start off a sick scratch, lands in a softer spot to exploit that form

 

7-Mcraven – This gelding has suffered from a case of seconditis so far this season, just missed as the heavy favorite @ Pocono, challenging post here, yet picks up our red-hot leading pilot

 

1-Camwiser – That was some effort from this 14YO from post ten for his 54thcareer win last week, moves all the way inside to face another camera-shy field

 

RACE 2

4-Grand Teton – The barn has been heating up right off the hop, was a stakes caliber youngster, qualified with a :26.2 & aired it out in his return @ Harrah’s Philadelphia

 

3-Wheels On Fire – Saw his winning streak snapped at six with a tough nose loss despite perfect rating, fresh Team Burke trainee back on the engine with a sizzling 1:49.1 comebacker on view

 

2-Mach N Cheese – Exploded home in :26.3 to get the cheese to the tune of $48.40 here fresh off the bench, then tripped out to repeat @ Yonkers, gets an inside draw to stalk the speed

 

RACE 3

4-Mr Carrotts – Just one for 14 this season, was right here against better last month, off a no-chance trip when dropped to this level, but now draws better, as Brower would say, “maybe”

 

8-All It Takes – Even though he draws another tough post here’s a drop down candidate, who was a recent upsetter in 1:51 with a nice rally on March 30, banks on a hot pace again

 

6-Uffizi – Before we get too excited about his dominant post ten win it was against a pretty weak bunch, still has a big chance to build on that in his second start off the bench

 

RACE 4

1-Odds On Naples – Kicked into high gear & barely outsprinted by the heavy favorite Abigail Dawn in a rousing 3YO debut, lands back on the rail for The Crocodile Man

 

4-Abigail Dawn – Fresh off a sharp qualifier she delivered the goods with speed at both ends in an inspiring 3YO debut & draws well to follow up in only her third career start

 

6-JK American Beauty – Added Lasix & chased Abigail Dawn in her latest qualifier, 1 for 12 filly hails from a top barn & owns some experience, yet may need one or two

 

RACE 5

3-Magnum Mike – Veteran gelding has been a money machine for Nick Surick, shows up every week with a strong finish, fresh off a first over crush & draws better

 

7-Pop Pop Joe – Claimed off a wire-to-wire win from post eight two starts back, versatile gelding can do it either way, expect him to blast off to control his destiny

 

9-Rather Swell – Three-time beaten favorite been encountering some tough trips in the GSY Series, challenging post here, but a consistent opportunist in form

 

RACE 6

5-Machiatto A – It was virtually impossible to know that scintillating improvement was coming last week, Aussie import might just be warming up & gets to follow up against another weak bunch

 

2-Always A Diamond – Three for his last 48, beaten favorite stepped up big time with aggressive Gingras handling, draws inside & tries to turn the tables on a surprisingly good Machiatto A

 

8-Heartland Revenue – When fishing for a price play note this gelding has picked it up significantly in his last two, but will need a lot f things to go his way from post eight

 

RACE 7

1-Dubious Claim – Shook loose with a sharp :26.1 to just miss upsetting last week, 1:50.4 winner here this season in line for another smooth stalking trip & overdue

 

3-Prophet Blue Chip – Dropped to the bottom, was reunited with Gingras & really stepped up with a first over crush from post nine last week, rewarded with an improved post off that lifetime mark

 

2-Highlandbeachycove – Returns from Yonkers, drops into a softer spot & draws inside here & looks to snap his 0 for ten this season in a wide-open field

 

RACE 8

5-K Ryan Blue Chip – Two-time Preferred winner this season landed on the fringe fourth with tough trips in his last two & now gets some class relief to assert himself

 

1-Stonedust – The grey gelding moves inside fresh off a game grind & narrow loss & chased a couple of sub 1:50 winners in two previous starts

 

9-Captain Deo – 4YO arrives on a form spree & just missed @ Pocono last week, tough draw in a very sharp field, but note the barn change

 

RACE 9

7-Outkast Blue Chip – Uncorked a rousing comeback rally to just miss to JK Parlay last week, fresh claim with a chance to flaunt more of his back class in his second start off the bench

 

4-Spaghetti Eddie – Liked him last week off the easy wire-to-wire win & claim, was right there stalking a fast pace & now Steady Eddie draws a bit better as a big stalking threat

 

9-JK Parlay – Goes for three in a row fresh off a hard-fought wire-to-wire & lifetime best of 1:51 from post nine, fresh claim likely blasts off & tries to go as far as he can again

 

RACE 10

7-I’m A Big Deal – Tough to gauge this 4YO’s current form off a dull qualifier & return mile, but his back class is lurking & can take advantage of a class drop in a competitive scenario

 

8-Bettor’s Edge – Ultra classy double millionaire grinded it out, kept coming & was right there with the trip-sitting Dependlebury A in a super comeback, will certainly add fire to a wicked field

 

5-Stendahl Hanover – Rallied to just miss with a crisp :53.4 back half last week after beating stiff N/W 5 stock @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, draws better as a possible price play in an impossible race

 

RACE 11

6-Bushwacker – Faded off a speed try from the same post two weeks ago, has been lean in win column, but the class drop & more patient handling could spell upset

 

4-Lyons King – Added Gingras off two acclimating miles, took control & cruised to a new mark of 1:50.1 last week, draws inside again as the main target in a competitive field

 

7-Rebel Rouser – Extended his winning streak to five with a sharp score from post eight @ Pocono, The Rebel faces a serious test back here, but has a chance to keep it going

 

RACE 12

1-Rock On Precious – Took his requisite acclimating tour of the oval last week, was facing tougher claimers @ Yonkers & now moves inside to step it up with a stalking trip

 

8-Live On – Made up a lot of ground after a slow start last week, regaining form on the comeback trail, draws outside again, yet gets another shot at this bottom level

 

2-Gotta Minute N – Ships in winless this season & just three for his last 30, but take note of the barn change to Bill Mann, not much to indicate a possible turnaround, but does draw inside

 

RACE 13

2-Daylon Horizon – May have come around in his last few, chased the standout Magnum Mike two starts back & now moves inside off an impossible trip, possible price play 

 

1-Diabando – Suddenly turned the switch on going two-for-two @ Freehold off the Nick Surick claim, lands the rail in a wide-open finale to tap into that renewed form back on the mile track

 

7-Oh My Joepa – Badly beaten heavy favorite got off to a slow start & lacked any late response, fresh claim now draws a demanding post, but has a chance to rebound for his new barn
