Race 1

Race 2

(2) HALLIN GATOR gets a red-hot pilot and will get an aggressive drive.  (4) CATEGORY SIX has been racing evenly but can put up a decent mile at times.  (6) WOW POWER should offer an enticing price in an evenly matched race.

Race 3

(1) HOWDY DEWEY well-bred trotter gets the best post and faces much easier.  (5) MARY'S DARVIN looks to be handicapped by the driver but could have the most horsepower to work with.  (2) MUSTODIAN does own some ability but will probably be overbet based on her lines from a lightning fast Pocono track.

Race 4

(4) GENUINE STAR N has had tough trips in his last few.  The veteran pacer will look to take no prisoners for a hot barn; fires early.  (3) HEZA STAR CRUISER just missed against a weaker bunch but looks to be in line for a good trip.  (9) CRAIG MICHAEL gets a tough starting post and a negative driver change; use underneath.

Race 5

(1) GIULIO steps up in class but gets the best post off some impressive efforts.  (4) WIND SURFER has a class edge on the field but should have been much better last out; use caution.  (3) ELIAN'S VALENTINE mare fits with this bunch if the driver can work out a smooth trip.

Race 6

(2) NO SHENANIGANS was a big time winner last out; driver's choice.  (4) REMBRANDT VAN RYN just scored in this class but the driver opted elsewhere.  (7) FLYING METRO is hard to gauge by the trainers inconsistency.  The gelding drops in class and is versatile.

Race 7

(6) FORTUNE'S JENNA gets sent out for a top barn that is winning at a huge clip and the pacer has been sharp.  (9) SANTA'S SPECIAL gelding has been on the upswing but needs to work out a trip.  (1) LOST JEWELS gelding will look to go wire to wire but has been vulnerable late; command a price.

Race 8

(2) BLACK ACE HANOCER finds a wide-open race and will offer a big price.  (1) PARTYATBARTSPLACE second time in a new barn and benefits from the rail; threat.  (3) OUR MCLOVIN the driver opted elsewhere but the pacer has a chance in an evenly matched race.

Race 9

(2) ZORGWIJK HEAVENLY mare might have to come uncovered against a tough opponent on the lead but she could be up to the task.  (3) NORMA'S ROSE has the most gate speed in the field and has a tendency to run in streaks which could be a good sign; fires early.  (4) KAHOKU should be much closer turning for home than his last few; threat.

Race 10

(6) BIG JER has went some big efforts in his last three starts showing big moves.  Five-year-old is versatile and could try and fire out of the gate for position.   (5) MYBROTHERGEORGE had too much to do last race from a very tough spot.  The well-bred pacer has been lights out in a new barn and should offer a fair price.  (1) JS TANGO has been razor sharp in his last two efforts, gets the best post, and will control it.

Race 11

(7) KIRTY DREAM will look to hit the top early; big chance.  (2) MYTHICAL HALL looks to be in line for a great trip up close to the pace.  (4) LIFELONG HANOVER made a miscue out but was good the start prior; use underneath.

Race 12

(4) KING RICHARD could need a start coming off a long layoff, however he is the class of the field.  (9) PLAYERS BALL has been pacing consistent miles but yet to win in eighteen starts this year and should probably be used on the bottom of your tickets.  (2) ALLCARDSALLTHETIME has been up against it in his last two dealing with very tough posts.  The 4-year-old gets a much better post and will be handled aggressively.

Race 13

(2) FOX RIVER MARK faces significantly less and will be firing early.  (6) MOSH PIT was razor sharp last out just getting beat after going a huge three quarters of a mile.  (9) COLD BATH has been closing up nicely from tough spots and should save some ground.

Race 14

In a wide open field (3) I'M JUST CRUISIN' has been deceptively sharp in his last two and could offer value bumping up in class.  (5) FOLLOW THRU has just been racing evenly; command a price.  (1) COWBOY ROUNDUP was the driver's choice and gets the best post.

Race 15

(7) BEEYOUUUUUU has yet to win on the year but finds a suspect field; big chance.  (9) WATERHOUSE paced a decent mile last out but would still need more to hit the top spot.  (1) MAJOR SPEED gelding has been racing much better in his last two efforts.
