Analysis:
PULL DANCER exits the much-faster division of maiden special weights at Belmont on September 14, and the winner of that heat, Gemswick Park, returned to finish third in the Grade 1 Frizette at 7-2 odds. Pull Dancer made a wide, midrace move that day, and was easily second-best. She goes out for top connections, and should be a strong contender at a short price.
FAST ANNIE shows several quick workouts over the synthetic surface at Goldmark, and trainer John Kimmel has good numbers with debut runners. She should offer value in this big field.
SEASIDE HOME showed improved speed in her first start over polytrack, and just succumbed late in that Turfway Park heat. Expect Robby Albarado to have her forwarly-placed once again here.
TWICE PUNCHED pressed the fractions over soft turf at Arlington in her career debut. The $50,000 juvenile purchase can be a pace factor at the very least. EYEINTHESKY makes her career debut for strong connections, and the September 20 workout looks very interesting. VICK'S VIOLET didn't have the easiest of trips in her debut at Ellis Park, and should benefit from the experience. This barn excels with young horses, and Vick's Violet may work out a nice stalking trip while racing in the clear. SMOKING KITTY is by a hot debut sire out of a Storm Cat mare, but the works fail to entice. WACCAMAW shows a bullet work from the gate over this surface, and the barn sent out a juvenile debut runner to finish second on Thursday. COUNCIL RING has some speed on the bottom of her pedigree, and shows a steady string of five-furlong workouts. SOUTHERN SURGE is stuck outside, and the barn doesn't often win first-out. SLICK MISS goes out for barn that pulled off a debut shocker on Thursday. A J'S GAL may be in tough from the rail.

Analysis:
VIA CUVEE's first-crop sire was very precocious in his day, winning the Kentucky Breeders' Cup by 8 1/4 lengths, the Saratoga Special by 7 1/2, and the Belmont Futurity by 8 1/4 lengths. He's done fairly well with his first-crop, and the dam earned blacktype going short. Steve Asmussen is one of the best in the world first-out, and Via Cuvee shows a sharp five-eighths work on October 3. She gets the call despite the far outside post.
CHINA BAY is out of graded winner China Storm, and shows some solid workouts leading up to her debut. Mr. Lukas has struggled with firsters this year, but the beautifully-bred Overbrook product may offer some value.
FORESEEN PLEASURE has some speed in her pedigree, but the barn's newcomers generally need a race before reaching the winner's circle.
BIG DIAMOND has good speed, and makes the important third start of the form cycle with improving Beyers on display. She looms a strong pace factor. SHE'S EXTREME adds Lasix for her second start, and that's a very

potent angle in maiden races. She took lots of money for her debut so we'll expect a pretty good performance from her today. POPS LADY V. raced evenly in her debut against maiden claiming foes at Turfway, and must meet a promising special weight group here. PASSION DU COEUR cost $300,000 at auction, and these connections must always be respected. The workouts fail to excite, however. SHAMELESS exits a key race, but she hasn't been out since June, and draws a tough inside post. FLUID GRACE may need a run. PAST TWILIGHT took some money at Turfway, but failed to fire. BANSHEE EXPRESS has the pedigree and connections to run well first out, but may not offer a big price on the tote. IMPLICATE hasn't shown a published workout in the last 17 days.

Selections:
1. Via Cuvee
2. China Bay
3. Foreseen Pleasure
