Race 1

(7) BIG MOON RIZING looks to have a lot of ability and should be ready for a big effort third start off the bench.  (5) FRISKY BOB paced a decent mile in his career debut and has room to improve.  (4) TEMPLE OF ZOOM comes off a nice qualifier in a field full of question marks.

Race 2

(1) SIR ARTHUR D should offer a nice price with the best post in a wide open race.   (4) DELIGHT FASHION well bred pacer appears to be getting better with every start; threat.   (7) OFFICIALLY YOURS four-year-old owns a big brush when timed right and was the top driver's choice.

Race 3

(8) FOX VALLEY QATAR was getting short late last out but will look to make it three straight.  (3) ALLPOWERNOEMOTION gelding has been showing consistent improvement and gets a post edge on his main rivals.  (7) CAPTAIN GREEDY didn't miss by much last race to the top choice but is probably best used underneath.

Race 4

(5) HARPER VALLEY BOY was much better last start and has room to improve for proven connections.  (2) BINGO PRINCE sophomore pacer is 0 for his career but finds a weak and inconsistent field; threat.  (8) FOX VALLEY CADET came up empty last week after a nice start prior.

Race 5

(1) QUINNOCCHIO has a ton of upside in an evenly matched race.  (5) DUPAGE'S Z TAM looks to be primed for a big effort third start back off a layoff.  (2) ENGINE ONE O ONE has breaking issues but could be the fastest pacer in the field when the kinks get worked out.

Race 6

(5) SHINE N SHIMMER historically hasn't fared well on the big track but the pacing mare finds a much softer field than what she's been recently facing.  (4) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH had some issues in Indiana but if right the mare's a major player against this group.  (3) DP ANGEL was the driver's choice coming off a dominating victory.

Race 7

(8) DINKY DUNE can prove he's the real deal with a win against the best the state has to offer.  (4) DIXIE'S BOY is very talented and just needs a smooth trip for a piece.  (10) EARNDAWG reigning 2-year-old champ will get some help from his uncoupled entry mates ensuring a fast pace to close into.  (3) LUCPARK gets a big post edge on his main rivals; threat.

Race 8

(5) SOUTHWIND SCORPION raced huge last out against a much better bunch; big chance.  (1) EVERGREENSDUNESIDE will look to make it two straight at this level but will need more to get past the top choice.   (3) SUNSET DREAMER impeccably bred pacer was roughed up last out but usually races gamely.

Race 9

(8) IN OVER MY HEAD nine-year-old stallion will look to make it three in a row and should be primed for a huge effort third start back off the layoff.   (7) LENNOX BLUE CHIP takes a huge drop in class and was the driver's choice of three.  (1) BIG BRAD has really lacked pop late but is capable of hitting the ticket underneath.

Race 10

(3) LUCKY CRUSADER faces much weaker and just needs a smooth trip.   (7) SIR MAMMO is starting to crank it up but faces older and needs some racing luck.  (9) FEELNLIKEAROCKSTAR sophomore pacer also faces older but has a nice pedigree and raced tremendous last start.

Race 11

(4) SPECIAL JOE picks up a huge driver change; fires early.  (2) SAGE RUCK has been unable to beat weaker but usually jumps up with a big effort once or twice a year; command a price.  (1) MADOFF seven-year-old stallion is loaded with ability and is also capable of pacing a big mile.

Race 12

In a tough race to gauge (9) FRISKIE FLICKER put in a much better effort last out than what looks on paper.  If the pacing mare can find a way into the race she's a huge threat at a price.  (1) WINGS was hot earlier in the year but gets sent out for a provisional pilot.   (7) MR LELAND'S FILLY has been a huge disappointment so far this year.  If the 3-year-old can get her gait worked out she could blow past this field late.
