RACE 1 

7-Caviart Camden – Caviart Farms homebred from the stellar first crop of Pace champion Huntsville stormed home to upset his opener in a sizzling 1:51.4, back half in :54, tougher post, but no doubt a rising star & leads a Team Alagna triple threat 

  

6-Pebble Beach – First crop of double millionaire Downbytheseaside & first foal out of a sister to $3.7 million combined Vintage Master & Great Vintage, won both Magical Acres baby races, roughed up in his Ohio debut, one to fear here 

  

5-River Ness – Fourth foal out of the $715,804 winner Summertime Lea, this Huntsville colt romped in his stakes debut here off one Gaitway qualifier for Team Burke, then scratched sick, which raises some concern 

  

RACE 2 

2-Jack Rabbit Slims – Muscle Hill fourth foal out of $751,321 winner Mystical Starlight, landed on the fringes in both starts with solid finishes, draws better in a soft consolation & continues ramp it up 

  

4-Wall Of Moni – First crop of Walner is winning everything, this colt out of a sister to $775,463 winner International Moni, showed promise in his first two outings, lands post four again, chance to rebound off a miscue in the slop 

  

7-Laws Of Motion – Walner first foal out of a sister to $869,608 winner Prestidigitator, miscued in his debut, then chased a standout King Of the North, demanding post here, but has license to improve for Team Orange Crush 

  

RACE 3 

2-Robert’s Hanover – Late-blooming Cantab Hall colt draws much better off a strong second from post eight in the slop for Team Alagna & figures to be tracking close 

  

9-Beautiful Game – Classy Grand Circuit stakes winner at two had no chance in her Reynolds comebacker, stuck outside here, but goes back to Dexter Dunn 

  

8-Kiss An Angel – Streaking Father Patrick filly has caught fire for a sharp trotting barn, ships in on a five-race winning streak @ Pocono, the latest against NW 4 in the slop  

  

RACE 4 

5-Monimovesmountains – Cantab Hall first foal out of a sister to new millionaire & Graduate champ Ready For Moni, a solid second over a track rated good in her lone baby race & worth a long look 

  

9-Joviality S – Chapter Seven first foal out of $579,565 winner Pasithea Face S, 1:50.4, cruised all the way in her NYSS debut @ Saratoga, lands outside, but looks like the real deal for Team Melander 

  

1-Lilbitalexis – Walner second foal out a Muscle Hill dam, bounced back with a pretty convincing qualifier @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, Nifty Norman trainee lands the rail with Dexter Dunn & could be anything 

  

RACE 5 

6-Skyway Kon Man – Gets the much-needed class plunge, has had a solid season so far, retains Andrew McCarthy, lands in a real soft spot & leads a Team Cullipher 1-2 punch 

  

10-Chiplosive – The bad post blues continues for this Team Cullipher horse-for-the-course, yet he does come off a strong rally to hit the board 

  

1-Hockey Hanover – Hockey flashed speed & couldn’t hack it in the slop, but this Team Burke trainee gets another shot at this reduced level, in line for a smooth trip & reunited with Yannick Gingras 

  

RACE 6 

1-Looks Like Moni – Muscle Hill first foal out of a half million dollar winning sister to Snow White, won both baby races with a keen late kick, skipped last week after an eye-catching debut in the slop, lands the rail for Team Takter & retains the Bionic Man 

  

7-Temporal Hanover – This Walner colt has been flawless so far for Team Melander, overcame the same demanding post with tactical speed & sharp late kick, switches to The White Knight & continues to point skyward 

  

3-King Of The North – One of three Walner colts in this wildly competitive final with a two-for-two record, got a bit lonely on the lead last week, but stepped it up & held off Bully Boy Hill & draws inside again 

  

RACE 7 

1-Theresnolimit S – Son of $3.6 million winner & 2014 Hambo runner up Nuncio a solid second in his stakes debut here, then jogged in his second start for Team Melander & now lands the rail  

  

4-Fast As The Wind – Cantab Hall out of a sister to millionaire Guccio doing good things in all three of his baby trials, nosed out with trot at both ends in his latest from the same inside post 

  

3-Abruzzo – Walner fourth foal out of a sister to $782,478 winner Money On My Mind, third behind Fast As The Wind in his latest qualifier here & draws well for Team Miller 

  

RACE 8 

2-I’m Happy Hanover – Muscle Hill filly has progressed nicely, won both trials, a solid third in her opener, then pace compromised with late trot & now draws better 

  

8-Riding High – Walner filly first foal out of a Muscle Massive mare, on the fringes in both series starts, draws outside again, but flashed some late life last week for Team Burke 

  

3-Those Blues – Muscle Hill third foal out of a near half million dollar winning dam, lively effort in her second start, pace & trip compromised last week & draws an improved post 

  

RACE 9 

6-Lovedbythemasses – Added Lasix & stormed home from tenth to pick up a piece with a back half of :54.2 over an off track, just missed before that in :26.4 & keeps Sears 

  

9-Big Oil – Been a model of consistency @ Harrah’s Philadelphia for Team Orange Crush, tough post in a lively field, but tactical speed puts him in play 

  

7-The Veteran – Unleashed an impressive 1:51.1 comeback for Team Melander, then reached too high in the Crawford Farms, has a big chance to regroup with his speed 

  

RACE 10 

6-Delilah Hanover – Muscle Hill second foal out of a sister to Donato Hanover, well bet & steamrolled first over from post eight to score her first win, draws a bit better & has a big chance for Nifty Norman to go 1-2 in here 

  

5-Venerable – Walner sister to 1:52.4 performer Crucial, has swept all four outings for Nifty Norman, shot home in :26.3 to go two-for-two in the series & draws midpack again looks like a future star 

  

1-Peyton Hanover – Muscle Hill filly was a decisive stakes winner at first asking, a solid third in both legs of this series, moves inside for The Bionic Man & stalks the ample speed for Team Melander 

  

RACE 11 

1-Marvalous One – Has been trending in a positive direction, third in his last three with increased late vigor, finally moves inside & gets Dexter Dunn again 

  

4-Trick Card – Went evenly in his debut for Team Bongiorno, makes his second start off the claim, gets away from any standouts & now Joe takes the lines 

  

6-Mr Mcdreamy – Just one for 20 this season, that lone win came in a romp against easier two starts back, just missed on the rise up & might be on the verge of another 

  

RACE 12 

7-In Range – PASS winner in 1:52.3 was severely pace compromised finishing third in the Yonkers Trot, #3 rated Hambo eligible gets a serious tune up for Team Melander  

  

5-Johan Palema – Progressing nicely for Team Svanstedt, moved up to #4 on the Road to the Hambo Top Ten this week & gets a stiff mile track test against a talented colt & filly 

  

6-Bella Bellini – Bar Hopping filly & PASS winner has blossomed this season for Nifty Norman & Dexter Dunn, big threat fresh off a convincing 1:52.1 career best with a :26.1 

  

RACE 13 

4-Ponder The Odds – Very tough to gauge a Yonkers regular transitioning to the mile track here, this mare has gotten better in her last two, gets class relief & draws well in a wide open finale 

  

8-Sweet Lucy Lou – Beaten heavy favorite put together a pretty solid back half trying to close from a tough spot last week, draws farther outside, but has the class to atone & just needs some trip luck 

  

3-Darkrshadeofpale N – One of seven coming out of the same race last week, she was shuffled out with little chance, was knocking on the door before that & can stalk n pop
