RACE ONE (DOUBLE – 1-2, 1-4, 1-9 PICK-5 – 1 w 2,4,9 w 4,5 w 1,2 w 4)
1-IMHERETOTAKEOVER…first time starter qualified handily and in a time faster than foes have been racing!
5-DELI-CRAZE…compares very well with remaining competition here. Can do damage with usual :30 closer.
3-ROYAL CLIPPER…showed some good gate speed in qualifier and probably on the engine to start his career.
9-A CROWN FOR LINDY…warrior has outside post, yes, but still can out-sprint these & control the festivities.
2-CHIP CHIP PAGE…gave a nice hint in last showing strong trot on backside while double-bubbled. On ticket.
4-INSIDER ACCESS…doesn’t win often but last was sure impressive in this very same class. Gets garden trip.
RACE THREE (PICK-6 – 4,5 w 1,2 w 4 w 3 w 7 w 6)
5-MATCH POINT…mare chased a good one last couple of starts. Liked the solid trot in backside in last. Edge.
4-TWO DAYS FINALE…does possess some good gate speed and probably on the choo-choo train leaving here.
2-ETHANOL…owns a 1 and 1 record in photo finishes & last showed determination in holding on for dear life.
RACE FOUR (PENTAFECTA – 1,2 w 1,2 w 3,4,5,8 ALL THE WAY)
2-EY COWBOY…gets in very amiable situation here. Can turn on the afterburners & drew well to do just that.
1-SCARY HARRY…pulled on backside in last & showed solid pace final 3/8s of the mile. Cover flow dangerous.
8-CHARMBO CURIOSITY…didn’t draw well here but can swallow up ground when given some room to roam.
5-BUNKERHILL BILL…not much on paper but pulled on backside but :27.1 panel too tough to dent. Rolls late.
3-DAMON BLUE CHIP…been tackling tougher crowd in recent. Showed stout pace in lane vs. Northern Comp.
4-FLEETWOOD HALL…makes 100th career start. Recent form is very sharp. Can blast-off when asked. Edge!
3-MY REVENUER…warrior always reliable for stout closing kick. Just needs right timing to threaten in here.
1-TATER TWISTER…took couple of weeks off then came back & performed much better in return. On engine.
RACE SIX (PICK-4 – 3 w 7 w 6 w 2,7)
3-HOLIDAY SPIRIT…very gutsy in winning last after going first over on backside. Leon does have 400+ wins.
2-CHEEKY LITTLE MINX…versatile sort showed some gate speed in last & held fairly firm late in fast mile.
7-JLS TOO HOT TAJ…driven very confidently in last making move heading to turn 2 & on to victory. Sharp.
7-PISTOPACKINPIPER…not much on paper these days but double-dips into a very appetizing situation. LIKE!
6-McGREAT…looking very sharp on the racetrack recently. Former Open pacer looms very formidable in here.
4-KING RICHARD…made a rare miscue in last. Prior showed some decent gate speed & held firm until late.
RACE EIGHT (DOUBLE – 6-2)
6-PRAIRIE FORTUNE…made HUGE backside brush in last to sweep into lead but got nailed very last stride.
3-MASSIVE LIGHTNING…can really turn on the afterburners in the lane. Watch for double-bubble binge here.
4-BOLI…tried cutting the mustard in last but wasn’t quite tight enough to finish it off. Tightening up now.
RACE NINE (SUPER HI-5 – 2 w 7 w 1,4,5,9 ALL THE WAY)
2-ALASKAN SEELSTER…relaxed for first 5/8s in last then went winging & made big m”oo”ve final turn. Nailed.
7-JAMAICAN COWBOY…made huge move on backside into the lead, was passed on inside & came on again!
9-CABRERA…outside post hinders but dips down in class to amiable level. Hope is to follow live cover last lap.
5-BALL DON’T LIE…was dull for some reason in last but does have the capability to tossing in fast final panel.
4-SOAKING UP THE SUN…very fast but somewhat unreliable. Depends on “which one” shows up for this one.
