Race 1

(2) MEGYN HOTSPUR makes her third start back off a layoff and had the look of a winner last out.   (7) B C'S FANCY DANCER has been tremendously improved for a new barn; threat.  (4) MAGIC NUMBER well-bred filly has lots of room to improve in her third lifetime start.

Race 2

(8) FOUR HOUR NAP dominated a softer bunch at Maywood last start and is one of few with upside in the race.  (5) KITTY O'BRIEN is a model of consistency hitting the board in nine of eleven starts on the year.  (3) CAMILLE ROSE has been sharp getting ground saving trips shaking loose late but is probably best used underneath.

Race 3

(3) MY MINI SNICKERS well-bred filly has the most talent in the field but is a risky play because the connections like to lag the gate a lot in this class.  If the freshman trotter has her nose on the gate she probably wins for fun.  (2) LIMA PIZZAZ filly faces a much softer bunch in her second lifetime start.  (9) TINY PRANCER two-year-old makes her debut facing older but looks to have a ton of trotting ability.

Race 4

(5) CHILLINONADIRTROAD looks to have turned a corner and will be tough to beat with a similar effort to his last.  (6) ARLO GRAM also raced much better last out showing good fight; threat.  (1) DAVE'S ART gets the best post in an inconsistent field and has raced better on the big track.

Race 5

(6) ASHES N DUST owns a big burst of speed and is better than most of the field when right.  (2) GALACTIC STAR was razor sharp in this barn and is always a threat at this level.  (5) CAMWISER scored off the claim in a big effort and could have more to offer.

Race 6

(7) BOXED CHOCOLATES impeccably bred filly needed her last start and finds a field with few contenders.  (5) GET THE TERROR filly doesn't have much to show for owning a big burst of speed but that could change against this bunch.  (2) PARKLANE SPARKLE filly is probably the most talented in the race but can't seem to get over the hump; command a price.

Race 7

(9) RIDE SALLY paced a good mile at Hoosier before the break last start.  The 4-year-old will offer a big price in a wide open field.  (1) MY GIRL PIPPA filly has much more to offer than what she shows on paper and could be ready for an improved effort.  (8) MEET ME TONIGHT Indiana bred filly has stepped her game up in her last two but looks to offer low value from a tough post.

Race 8

(2) WILFULLYSCOOTENEVA doesn't show it on paper but was ready to do some damage before being shuffled last out; big chance.  (9) BABYSHOEBUYER has really come on strong in her last three efforts.  (3) BLUE GEM is on the improve and just needs a smooth trip for a piece.               

Race 9

(7) LD'S DASH gelding has put in a handful of winning efforts this year only to have bad racing luck.  The pacer is deceptively sharp and should be flying out of the gate.  (2) PUT TO THE TEST was a game winner at this level last out and looks to make it two straight.  (3) DOTS BIGBOY nine-year-old makes his first start for new connections; threat.
