Race 1 

(2) HAKUNA MATATA is a lightly raced pacer that has flashed some ability in an inexperienced field.  (5) HOT ROD PETE has shown a good burst of speed in his last few starts.  (4) GOT YOURSELF A GUN makes his second start for ownership that can’t be overlooked.

Race 2  

(6) ROCK N MAR is a risky play because of his breaking issues, however the trotter should offer a nice price and is capable if he minds his manners.  (9) CHOCOUTURE faces older coming off a layoff but probably has the most upside in the field.  (4) PALE ALE gelding is 0-for his career but has started to pick it up in recently. 

Race 3  

(6) FOX VALLEY REBEL is a nice-looking pacer that could have more to offer off an easy victory.  (7) SUPER SON OF SANDY loves to race and always tries his best.  (4) ITS A BIG SECRET was impressive last out circling the field with a big last quarter. 

Race 4  

In a wide open race full of inconsistent trotters, (7) VICKY VALOR should offer a big price and has stayed flat in three straight outings.  (4) ARCS CONQUEST also has been able to stay trotting, which is more than most in the field can say.  (5) BOOYAH JACK could be sitting on an improved effort. 

Race 5  

(1) BIG BRAD faces a much easier bunch and picks up the top driver.  (5) TINK AND TIGER has been sneaky sharp in his last few; threat.  (4) BIG DADDY WOO WOO just raced evenly last out but had been pacing some big miles prior. 

Race 6  

(9) STONEBRIDGE ULTIMO is on the improve but needs a good drive from an inexperienced pilot.  (3) K R B FOUR is 0-for the year but was the driver’s choice, which has to be taken into consideration.  (4) PONDA PREMIER made a break last out but will be ready for a good effort if he stays trotting. 

Race 7  

In a wide open race, (8) NO RESPECT has been facing tougher and is capable of a big mile.  (5) JUST BY DESIGN raced well last out from a tough post; threat.   (7) STATE STREET LIZ was sharp last out off a perfect trip and is versatile.

Race 8  

(8) VICTORIA IVY gets sent out for a trainer that has popped off some big miles in recently.  (9) MARZY BEARZY is very inconsistent from week to week but is a player in this group despite being 0-for the year.  (6) OUR MISS SPECIAL needed her last start and could be ready for a bettor effort.

Race 9  

(6) TOSHIE SPECIAL is just back in racing shape, will offer a nice price, and should be closer turning for home.  (7) FOX VALLEY TOUCHE owns all the back class and has made the most money in the field by far, but has just been racing evenly.   (2) THE BRUZILIAN BLUR was the top driver’s choice of three but races inconsistently from week to week. 

Race 10 

(1) REX PASSUS was dominant at this level not long ago and will be tough to beat with a smooth trip.  (7) ACES AGAIN comes off a nice victory and owns a good closing kick.  (6) BLUE RIVER owns some ability and drops down in for a tag.
