$1 play: 1 / 1-3 / 2-4 / 4-5-6  $12

Race 7

DEFIANT DONATO looms the shortest of prices in her career debut today. Impeccably bred filly by Donato Hanover out of Beat The Wheel cruised in her qualifier; has the look of a real good one. THE SPECIAL ONE makes his second career start after a distant second last out; trainer and driver Hegdal shocked with a 40/1 winner here last week. JON BOVI showed speed and kept up well enough in his most recent. PINEY'S SCHOONER broke in his debut when bet down to 4/5.

Race 8

TAKEMEWITHYOU completes his way down to the bottom level condition although he does show a number of superior looking rivals on recent view. 1:51 winner from last year might still have enough to handle these; now or never. BROOKSTONE lands the rail for Burke; an imposing combination. Faced some tough ones in series action at the Meadowlands in February. SPECIAL BLEND set fast fractions two back and was better one closing in his most recent; similar strategy coming.

Race 9

MCATTEE gave heavily favored Majestic Stone a good run last week and was game to just miss by a half length after cutting the mile. Trotted in 1:56:4 two back and seems fastest of these. THE TRAVELER closed from far back last week and now moves inside; makes third start back on the year. DAY TO DAY makes her second start of the year; trainer Wagner is off to a good start this meet. SOUTHWIND AMARILLA will be up close early.

Race 10

ALEXACHASE and MONOCHROMATIC renew their rivalry yet again today; the latter exits a win at the Meadowlands and hasn't been worse than second in her last five starts. Gets the slight nod. OOH BAD SHARK surprised three back; any live flow would aid her cause. SUMMER SNOW went a solid first over when making her first start over the track last week; raced against Krispy Apple two back.
