WHEREDIDEVERYONEGO never got a breather in her local debut as she battled with favored Casual Pia for the first half-mile. Once she disposed of that foe, she opened up on the field turning for home, but couldn't resist the late surge of the closers. She catches a field without much early speed on Saturday, should appreciate turning back in distance, and new rider Nick Santagata may be able to slow things down on the front end. She should be prominent when they turn for home, and could prove difficult to catch this time.
IMALLALONE finished ahead of the top selection in her turf debut, and is scheduled to receive nine pounds from Wheredideveryonego for the rematch. The half-sister to multiple stakes-winner Bit of Puddin (1-5 on turf, 307K in career earnings) may have found a home on grass, and should be charging hard again in the lane. PERSIPANNY ROAD ran very well to just nip Wheredideveryonego at the wire on June 15 as it was her first start of the year, and she was forced to go wide turning for home. The daughter of stakes-placed Wartoendallwars (25-1-5-6 on turf, 87K in career earnings) is a half to stakes-placed Lyndee's Pearl (9-0-3-0 on grass, 104K in career earnings), and shouldn't be taken lightly. LUNAR'S LULLABY finished evenly in her first start with blinkers, and has never been this cheap. Continued improvement can put her in the hunt.
CLARE TO HERE makes the important third start of the form cycle while dropping in class, but must avoid wide trip from outside post.

Selections:
1. Wheredideveryonego
2. Imallalone
3. Persipanny Road

The play: Wheredideveryonego to win at 2-1 or more.
