Race 1

(7) BEACHSIDE BUNGALOW faces a much easier field and adds Lasix for the second time.  (6) EL SHOOTER three-year-old makes his third start back off a long layoff, should be primed for a big effort, and has a lot of ability.  (2) READY three-year-old put in a big effort last out and gets a great post.

Race 2

(4) AUNIQUEAQUISTION looks to be the cream of the crop in the division dispatching her rivals last out with ease.  Three-year-old filly has more to offer and should benefit from a slow pace up front.   (5) DALLAS JONES filly couldn't make up any ground on the top choice last out but has big time closing ability if close enough turning for home.  (2) ALIYAH MARIA nice looking filly pacer has also shown big time closing ability in her last three and could be in line for a ground saving trip.

Race 3

(4) GIMMEAZZZMOOCH three-year-old faces older but should offer some value in a wide open race.  Filly has been improving and racing better than her lines show.  (2) LIMA DAY DREAM raced terribly last out but gets a good post and would be a threat if he raced back to his effort a two starts ago.  (3) MISS PAT WEISAR mare draws inside and makes her second start back off a long layoff in a suspect field.

Race 4

(2) WINDSUN MONTECARLO was drivers choice, drops in class, and should get a good trip.  (3) LIMA CALLIOPE also drops in class after some sharp efforts; threat.  (5) EDITA HANOVER mare races inconsistently but a good effort would put her in the mix.

Race 5

(1) WHISTLE PIG mare made an uncharacteristic break last out late.  Six-year-old takes a huge drop in class, draws the rail, and would win with a good effort.  (4) FINANCIAL EFFORT put in a disappointing effort last out after a pretty nice trip.  Four-year-old is just now racing herself back into shape and was sharp the start before.  (6) PHOBIC PRINCESS mare made up a lot of ground late last out.  Five-year-old has been off her game but has a lot of ability in a wide open race should the top choice falter.

Race 6

(4) MYSTICAL WALTER gelding is on the verge of a win and just needs the right scenario to set up before unleashing a late rally.  (3) FOX VALLEY ACTION looked to have no intentions of being used too hard before this stake race and is the horse to beat.  (8) CRANKIN' IT UP will be doing just that late especially if there's a fast pace upfront.  Three-year-old is versatile but his best shot is from off the pace.

Race 7

(3) SPORTS FANATIC gelding went a tough trip last out first up.  Nine-year-old could be the only threat to the entry.  (1) TINK AND TIGER is the powerhouse of the entry and was vicious last out just getting nipped out of a photo.  Should the 5-year-old race like he did last out go ahead and chalk it up as a victory.  (2) MAJOR MALE gets the best post and should be in line for a ground saving trip; fires late.

Race 8

In a very tough race to handicap (2) ONE LAST CHANCE looked to be home free at a huge price last out before breaking late. (3) MAJESTIC ROYALE got an ideal trip last out and couldn't make up any ground.  Six-year-old has been racing more consistently than most in the field.  (1) DABESTLEADEREVER steps up in class off a good victory, owns some back class, and could have gained some confidence.

Race 9

(9) BEST MAN HANOVER gelding takes a big drop in class and is versatile; big chance.  (5) OLD MAN RIVER five-year-old needed his last start and besides the top choice finds a field full of question marks.  (2) RICHESS EMPEROR gelding has a lot talent and will find some racing luck at a price one of these nights.

Race 10

(8) PARTY HANGOVER has big time upset potential in this field.  Mare is making her third start back, adds Lasix for the second time, and has been razor sharp.  (4) ALWAYS ABOUT KATEY two-year-old Indiana champ is also adding Lasix for the second time.  Filly was used really hard last out and could use a much smoother trip.  (2) MYSTICAL VICTRESS classy mare got back on track last out beating a much weaker field and will be a short price; use caution.

Race 11

(5) MISTER VIRGIN nice looking three-year-old is just now back in racing shape and should offer some value in an evenly matched race.  (3) BRIEF'S BOY gelding has a lot of talent and looks to be versatile.   (4) SHISWELL'S DELIGHT has just been racing evenly for a long time, but does get a drop in class; command a price.

Race 12

(6) JUSTLIVINTHEDREAM four-year-old dominated last out and now makes his second start for the new connections and could be even better.  (2) WOLFIES SPORTSTER gelding couldn't get around the half mile but does own one good brush if he minds his manners.  (5) OHYOUATEONETOO put in a huge effort last out at a big price.  A repeat of that effort puts him in the money.

Race 13

(1) BESTNOTGETINMYWAY draws the rail and has been pacing consistently in a weak field.   (7) BONN SCOTT gelding takes a suspicious drop off a scratch; use caution.  (2) TOBINS FORTUNE five-year-old was taken out of his last race and just needs a good trip to hit the ticket.
