Race 1

(7) INDIAN LAKE has been the picture of consistency of late and was a winner last week in this class. (6) GIRL DRAMA closed well last week to finish third and likely will offer a short price. (9) LAKEFIELD comes from the Gallucci barn and drops into this bottom end claimer. He’s a threat with his back class.

Race 2

(5) MILLIONDOLLARCELL has hit the board in each of the last three starts and now drops into a claimer. He finishes off his miles well and gets MacDonald back in the bike. (3) BLUE CHIP SUNSHINE draws inside, comes from the Moreau barn and was a winner two back. (2) RAVE ON has back class, comes from the Johnson barn and won this class last week.

Race 3

(1) NORMSTRIKESFAME draws the rail and drops into this claiming event. He looks like the horse to beat. (7) CHARLIES A FLYIN was a game fourth last week and may offer a price. (8) WEST COAST ROCKER comes from the Johnson barn, is versatile and gets Waples.

Race 4

(4) UTAH BEACH just missed last week for Hudon and is well overdue for his first career win. (6) FIGHTTOTHEFINISH comes from the Moreau barn and went a tough trip last week. With a cleaner trip, he’s a threat. (8) THREE RIVERS DELL qualified well and looks capable of dropping time. He may offer a price and looks like a good option for the triactor.

Race 5

(8) SLIP INTO GLIDE was an open length winner in his latest, comes from the Baillargeon barn and has all kinds of back class. (5) PAPER BACKED LINDY has hit the board in four of his last five starts and gets MacDonald back aboard. (9) ZEUS LIGHTNING has earnings approaching $500K and has been a consistent performer in this class.

Race 6

(3) MINESTRE HANOVER was a winner last week, gets Jamieson in the bike and comes from the Johnson barn. (6) VITAL SIGN hasn’t been worse than second in this class in each of his last five starts. (10) ELECTRIFY was a winner last week in this class and moves into the Auciello barn.

Race 7

(6) EVEIL DUN CHAMPION has a solid record coming into tonight’s event and is fresh off a win in this class. (8) RANSON DEMAND comes from top connections, gets Waples in the bike and has hit the board in seven of 11 starts this season. (1) MITTCENT VAN GOGH draws the rail, shows the speed and should receive an inside trip. He’s a good option at a price.

Race 8

(1) COUGAR HALL will make his third start off the shelf and drops into this bottom class. He’s the horse to beat. (9) WHY DONT YOU STAY rallied off cover last week for O’Sullivan to finish second. He appears to be on top of his game coming into this dash. (7) KINDLY POET gets major class relief for this millionaire. At this level, he’s hard to overlook for the triactor.

Race 9

(1) ARQUE HANOVER looks like a very talented colt for trainer Gillis. He’s been blessed with the rail and has posted back-to-back scores. (10) MIKES POWERHOUSE comes from the Coleman barn, shows the speed and closed well last week to finish second. (2) MIGRATE BLUE CHIP draws inside, is fresh off a win and shouldn’t get overlooked.

Race 10

(1) BAX OF LIFE has all kinds of back class to offer and drops into a much softer field. (4) MAGIC LINDY should offer a double-digit price, but has the speed and is capable in this bottom class. MacDonald is back aboard.. (5) SMARTY PANTS adds Lasix to her program this week but has been a beaten favorite in each of her last three starts in this class.

Race 11

(10) AMIGO DE GRANDE will need to overcome the outside post 10, but has a good record this season and has over $100K banked. (1) ROLLS BLUE CHIP draws inside and has hit the board in each of his last two starts. (6) MAJOR HERBIE moves up in class, but comes from a high percentage trainer and has been racing very consistently as of late.

Race 12

(5) NEW PATROL hopefully will offer a price. He returns after a layoff, comes from a top barn and appears capable of dropping multiple seconds. (2) DECISIVE DESTINY draws inside, gets Condren aboard and closed well to finish third last week. (3) WATERSIDE LIGHT comes from the Barrieau barn and shows 1:51 speed in recent efforts. He’ll likely offer a price and is a good option for the Jackpot Hi 5.
