Race 2

(8) CONTINENTAL DIVIDE well bred 4-year-old just needs to ration his speed for a chance to go coast to coast.  (1) LIMA PIZZAZ could be sitting on a good effort coming off an impressive qualifier.  (7) FOX VALLEY HARRAH filly has yet to win in sixteen career starts but does own some ability.

Race 3

(3) MISS PAT WEISAR takes a significant drop in class and has already beaten better two starts back.  (5) SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR mare will look to make it five wins in her last seven starts at this level.  (2) LOVERS HOLIDAY raced super last out and has been much better in the new barn.

Race 4

(9) LITTLE MISS TORIE burned cash last start but could be the horse to beat with a smooth trip.  (8) CAN'T CATCH KEY filly is talented and picks up a good driver change.  (4) BS TYRICHESS is capable against this bunch; threat.

Race 5

(1) BULLDOG BENJI gelding trotted a nice mile last start for his first lifetime victory.  The 3-year-old has plenty of room to improve.  (3) PINSTRIPE PLAYER just missed last out to an opponent who would be a heavy favorite against this group.  (7) PATIENT I D  filly also trotted a career best last out but needs a good setup.

Race 6

(3) FOX VALLEY PIPA with any improvement could be the horse to beat coming off a nice first effort off a layoff.   (8) MISSIANA mare is catching a much softer field than what she's been recently facing; threat.  (10) IF I DIDN'T DREAM will need racing luck and a good setup to be anywhere close turning for home; use underneath.

Race 7

In a field with few contenders (7) KIMBERLY R has a convincing win at this level on the year and should offer a fair price.  (3) LOVE THIS PLACE the likely favorite owns the most back class but has not been the same for quite some time; command a price.  (9) JOYFUL GAME is just now back in racing shape and has a good late kick when right.

Race 8

(5) NANCYS SKYSCAPE owns only one win on the year but has shown a big burst of speed in a weak field.  (6) LARRY'S PLACE veteran pacer has been better in his last two and was the driver's choice.  (2) LD'S DASH has shown signs of turning it around since the qualifier.

Race 9

(2) MASTER OF EXCUSES takes a big drop in class and should win with a good effort.  (1) RED SOLO CUP has burned cash in two straight racing evenly.  The 4-year-old stallion lacked pop late the start before as well; command a price.  (9) MY FUNKY FARKLE gets a tough post and will need more; use underneath.

Race 10

(10) ALWAYS REESE didn't get to pace the full length of the stretch last week waiting for room.  The filly should offer a great price and looks to be getting better with every start.  (7) GET THE TERROR was really close last out and seems to be going in the right direction. (6) BABYSHOEBUYER has been knocking on the door in recent starts; threat.
