3-Letsdoit S – Colt by $3.6 million international star & 2014 Hambo runner up Nuncio, finished well to win his latest two off a sick scratch & draws well for Team Melander


7-Takato – Father Patrick second foal out of a Muscle Hill mare, her first was Hambo prospect Venerate, this Takter trainee looked a lot more focused in a wire-to-wire baby race in 1:57.3


5-El Toro Loco – First crop of Walner no match for NJSS foes two starts back, but tripped out with his first win @ The Meadows & picks up Gingras back here



3-Gotthegreenlight – American Ideal filly from a strong family, followed up her 1:52.4 Homegrown debut with a tripped out 1:51.2 from the same post, impossible to go against


6-Treacherous Dragon – Captaintreacherous sister to 1:47.3 Cane Pace winner Stay Hungry, out of world champion My Little Dragon, progressed nicely in three trials, her latest a sharp narrow loss  


1-Counterparty Risk – Note the ease in which this Captaintreacherous filly wired her debut @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, right back on the rail here to expand her horizons for Team Alagna



7-Lilbitalexis – Walner filly got even more aggressive & scored her debut in a sparkling 1:53.1 last week, draws a tougher post here, but she’s pointing skyward for Dexter Dunn & Nifty Norman


1-Just Bee Awesome – Chapter Seven second foal out of a sister to Bee A Magician, solid runner up in both baby races, her latest with a :27.2 & looks ready for her debut from the rail for Team Pelling


4-Valentina Blu – Chapter Seven sister to 1:52.4 performer Fourth Dimension, learning her lessons well, parked first over from post eight in her NYSS debut @ Saratoga, Team Alagna trainee looks promising 



3-Ken’s Walner – First crop of Walner colt jogged in both baby races, then outsprinted as the beaten favorite in his NJSS debut, draws better off that beneficial experience


5-Famous Father – Father Patrick third foal out of a sister to 1:50.4 millionaire The Bank, bounced back from a miscue to win his second trial for Team Takter


2-Global Daytrader S – Swedish-bred son of Ready Cash stallion Brillantissime, has done nothing wrong in three outings for Per Englom, kicked home nicely to win his debut @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & draws inside here with Tetrick



6-Butterfly Face S – Swedish bred filly by Raja Mirchi, first foal out of a sister to half million-dollar winner Piercewave Hanover, liked the way she bounced back off an early miscue to win her second trial for Lucas Wallin


8-American Beauty – Walner filly second foal out of 2016 Oaks champion/sister to 2017 Oaks winner Ariana G, pace & trip compromised & flashed late trot in her latest effort, stuck outside, but keeps improving for Team Takter


3-Danznqueen Hanover – Donato Hanover sired both Del Miller winners last Saturday, this filly won her first outing @ Magical Acres, then finished well with a bit of road trouble here, draws well again with something positive to build on



6-Don’t Fence Me In – Captaintreacherous filly just missed to Max Contract with a :25.4 in her debut back on June 26, then jogged in another baby race, that might give her the edge here for Team Alagna 


3-Max Contract – First crop of Huntsville & sister to 1:49 performer I’m A Big Deal, won her debut in a sparkling 1:52.1 with a :26.1, but that was 27 days ago, lands post three again for Team Orange Crush


2-Heartbreak Hotel – Sweet Lou filly out of 1:50.1 performer + $607,644 winner Love Canal, won her debut in game style @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, the pace compromised in PASS, draws inside with a big license to step up



1-Sabrina Hill – Muscle Hill fourteenth foal out of the Garland Lobell dam, improved in her second start with trot at both ends, moves inside & keeps getting better 


7-Palermo Hanover – Father Patrick out of 2012 Hambo Oaks shocker Personal Style, a solid second in her debut here from the same post & has logical license to show more


6-Misswalner Fashion – Walner filly won two of her three baby races in convincing fashion, her latest with a :26.4, sick scratch + 27-day layoff makes her tough to gauge



5-JK Standingovation – Son of NA Cup + $2 million winner JK Endofanera romped in both trials for Team Takter & shaved a few seconds in his latest with pace to spare, worth a swing in a division with several possibilities 


1-Caviart Camden – First crop of world champion Huntsville reeled off that eye-catching 1:51.3 upset in a stunning debut, then used hard & faded as the heavy favorite, draws better to rebound for Team Alagna


10-JK Victory – Another Team Takter-tuned son of JK Endofanera, brother to 1:47.2 performer Little Rocket Man, looked good in his baby races & just missed to Caviart Camden in :26.2 @ 2-5, big threat despite post ten



4-More Than Ever – Father Patrick filly followed up a confident second baby race with a well-controlled pari mutuel debut & draws well in a soft division for Team Alagna


5-Primadonna Deo – Hit the board with some decent late trot in her debut off just one Magical Acres prep, look for her to step up with another midpack stalk n pop effort


7-Cowboy Crushn – Chapter Seven second foal out of 1:52.3 performer + $838,678 winner Cowgirl Hall, jogged in both Gaitway baby races for Team Burke, forgive the miscue @ Saratoga



1-Niki Hill – Always B Miki sister to world champion Cattlewash, tripped out in her first baby race, then paced a back half in :54.3 with not much chance, poised for her debut from the rail for Chris Ryder


2-Always B Idyllic – Always B Miki first foal out of Dan Patch Award millionaire Idyllic Beach, won her second trial with solid speed & draws inside for Team Takter


4-St Nevis – Always Be Miki filly from a strong family that includes 1:48.3 performer Captive Audience, runner up in both betting races @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, the latest a PASS division & draws well here



4-Fast As The Wind – Cantab Hal out of a sister to millionaire Guccio, prepped well, then cruised as a the heavy favorite in his debut from the same post for Team Alagna


5-Wall Of Moni – First crop of Walner out of a sister to 1:51.4 performer International Moni, off a solid third in a NJSS consolation has a big chance to step up


6-Stride The Hill – Muscle Hill second foal out of the Credit Winner mare, the first was Peter Haughton Memorial winner Zenith Stride, third in all three outings, rallied third chasing Fast As The Wind last week



1-Four More Years – First foal out of a sister to double millionaire Pure Country, third career start, deceptively good qualifier + the rail for Team Takter


3-Pirate Hanover – Kicked home in a sharp :25.3 two starts back, then bumped into a 1:47.4 winner, draws inside again to trip out for Team Alagna 


7-Always B Sweet – Rebounded big time off a sick scratch with a new mark of 1:50.1 @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, look for him to follow up with a serious effort



1-Bionic – Flashed some signs of life two starts back, lightly-raced 3YO drops into a real soft spot, in line for a smooth trip & adds Tim Tetrick


3-Amrcanbootscoota A – Bounced back with his best effort in awhile @ Pocono, just one for 23 in 2021, but owns a bit of back class & draws inside a wide-open finale


2-Shezlimitless N – Makes her second start off a sick scratch after a tightening mile in the slop, hasn’t raced in three weeks, yet draws inside with Dexter Dunn
