Race 1

(7) FOX VALLEY QATAR has been unstoppable on the year and will look to keep it rolling; short price.  (2) RT HABENERO went an eye-catching mile last out circling the field after making a break early but will need much more to upend the top choice.  (6) SOUTHERNCOMFORTZONE has good ability but also has issues staying on gait.

Race 2

In a weak field (6) LYNRAE JAZMIN got an acclimating mile over the track and should have more to offer in a suspect field.  (9) MEGYN HOTSPUR is one of few contenders in the race and picks up the top driver.  (7) ALWAYS A JEWEL just raced evenly last out but could pick up the pieces with some pace to close into.

Race 3

(6) ADDIE ROSE was absolutely on fire late last out after the top driver decided to sit.  The filly will win for fun with a similar effort.  (7) TREAT FOR MY SWEET filly has plenty of room to improve in her third lifetime start.  (9) CIRCLE OF LOVE faces older but has a nice pedigree and comes off a good looking qualifier.

Race 4

(7) FOX VALLEY YOKO has proven to be the best so far and just needs a smooth trip for three in row.  (6) PERSAUSIVE LOOK has been off a month and could need a start but does own a good burst of speed when right.   (2) JAZZIE MERMAID is having a great year but will need much more to trot with the favorite late.

Race 5

(7) SHOOT THE THRILL has been facing the best trotters in the country and should find this spot more to his liking.  (2) KY LUCKY comes into the race super sharp; threat.  (6) STICKEM BUCK freshman trotter has proven tough to beat when he stays flat.

Race 6

(1) WINSPIRATIONAL will look to drop and pop; fires early.  (2) SEXY CARD SHARK ran off a bunch of wins last year at this track against similar.  The pacer was used aggressively last out and could be ready for an improved effort.  (3) LEANMEAN NORMAJEAN is very inconsistent but a good effort puts her in the mix.

Race 7

(1) MIND ERASER mare is ready to win with a trouble-free trip.  (8) JOYFUL GAME comes off a game effort against the same field.  (7) VAL'S WAY is one of few threats in the race; versatile.

Race 8

(10) BENNS SCORE KEEPER picks up a big driver change and will be leaving for position out of the gate.  (1) AMEN AMEN is facing much easier competition but has some question marks coming off a scratch.  (2) ENCHANTRESS LADY came up empty before also being scratched last out, however the well bred trotter was razor sharp prior.

Race 9

In a very tough race to handicap (4) LOOK MA NO HANDS should offer a big price and is capable with some racing luck.  (2) EAGLE A SCOOTIN rarely wins but will also offer an enticing price with a good post.  (8) EQUINOX SEELSTER doesn't look the best on paper but is capable of jumping up with a big effort.
