Race 1

Race 2

(5) SHADOWS WONDER filly has been consistent all year long and picks back up the regular pilot.  (6) WANNA ROCK N ROLL well bred 3-year-old was roughed up last out but loves to blast off the gate.  (4) JAKARDEZ needs to bounce back off some disappointing efforts but could do just that for a hot trainer.

Race 3

(3) SLIP INTO GLIDE should beat this field soundly with a good steer.  (8) INTENSE AMERICA should offer value underneath coming off a break.  (7) MMS LUCKY BOY is capable of a good effort especially with some pace to close into.

Race 4

(4) DONAU gelding takes a big drop in class from what he's been facing recently.  (3) MAJOR HOTTIE well bred stallion crushed at this level not long ago; threat.  (8) JOSHUA MY BOY doesn't  win often but is really fast and needed his last start coming off a layoff.

Race 5

(9) MAJOR HERBIE finds an ideal spot to do some damage against a suspect bunch.   (1) ORDER BY COMMANDER has been too far back early to be a factor but should be much closer turning for home with the rail.  (4) AQUANILLA mare gets a negative driver change that should boost the price.  The six-year-old could save some ground before shaking loose late.

Race 6

(3) I SCOOT SAM takes a big drop in class and has made the most money in the field on the year.  (5) SECRETSOFTHEKNIGHT has been knocking on the door at this level and just needs a good setup to score.  (2) WINNING DREAM was an easy winner last and gets a big driver change.

Race 7

(4) ITS NO SECRET mare has been consistently burning cash but should offer a better price and just needs some racing luck to turn it around.  (10) RADAR CONTACT mare owns all the back class and takes a huge drop in class but needs to find a way into the race.  (9) ST LADS PEEPER scored at this level last out but needs much more from a tougher post; use underneath.

Race 8

(2) SHADOW PLACE owns a big burst of speed and is versatile for proven connections.  (8) SOME MAJOR BEACH has yet to put it all together but was much improved last out; threat.  (5) HIGH FLIER impeccably bred pacer went a huge three-quarters of a mile last out before tiring late.

Race 9

(8) YUCATAN four-year-old stallion gets sent out for a streaky trainer that can pop at anytime with big miles.  (5) CHAMPAGNE PHIL was sharp last out ripping home after shaking loose too late.   (2) SING FOR ME GEORGE seems uninterested some nights and usually offers low value; command a price.

Race 10

(6) DAPPER DUDE five-year-old pacer could try a change of tactics which could make him a big player late.  (1) DOVUTO HANOVER has been dominating this group for awhile but doesn't have to win; short price.  (7) PISTON BROKE gelding fits in this group and will have a say with some pace to close into.

Race 11

(4) SOMEWHEREINHEAVEN mare has been far back in her last two and will be much closer turning for home down in class.  (8) RACEY MISS has been pacing some decent miles and will offer a big price for a top trainer.  (2) HAT TRICK HONEY owns only one win on the year and would need more to hit the top spot; use underneath.

Race 12

(5) TWIN B IMPRESSIVE raced big last out from a tough post and is a threat with a similar effort.  (1) MACHAL JORDAN gelding is very fast and just needs a smooth trip for a chance to hit the ticket at a price.   (2) LEAFS AND WINGS just raced evenly last out but bumps back down in class; threat.
