Race 1

(6) FORTUNE SAILOR has been sharp, gets sent out for a red hot driver, and should get some pace to close into.  (5) TALLADEGA HANOVER has only one win on the year but finds a much softer field than his last few.  (8) MAD COW LISA the connections have had some sharp efforts recently but could be hampered by a tough post.

Race 2

(2) DUNGEON DRAGON was shot out of a cannon the whole mile for proven first time connections last start.  If the pacer races back to that its lights out.  (1) DANNYS MAN was also a nice winner last out and should save some ground into a blazing fast pace.  (6) FORTUNE'S JENNA is razor sharp for a hot barn but will be up against it from off the pace.

Race 3

(5) DREAM KID should offer a big price and showed a little bit more interest last out.  The trotter owns some back class but needs a trip.  (3) HOWDY DEWEY has hit the board in the last three and could get a decent spot off the gate.  (2) NORDIC VENTURE gets sent out for a top trainer that is capable of scoring at anytime; threat.

Race 4

(2) MOSH PIT went a huge three quarters of a mile just getting picked off late last out.   (1) HALLIN has just been racing evenly, but adds a positive driver change.  (3) FUDGE well bred pacer has underachieved this year but does own ability.

Race 5

(4) BASILIO BLUE CHIP veteran pacer makes his second start in a new barn and should show some improvement.  (3) REMBRANDT VAN RYN looks to offer low value but was an easy winner in this class two starts ago.  (1) MACH TO THE LIMIT driver opted elsewhere but gets the best post in an evenly matched field.

Race 6

(7) CRY FOR CASH gets an intriguing morning line and could be tough to stop if he hits the top early.  (9) FOLLOW THROUGH has just been racing evenly but should also offer a nice price in a tough race to gauge.  (6) FIERCE DESIRE made up a ton of lengths last out from a tough spot in his last start; threat.

Race 7

(1) PLAYERS BALL has yet to get a win on the year but does get big time post relief from his last few.  (3) T R KILOWATT SAM will likely take heavy tote action for a new barn down in class.  (2) TOTAL PROOF has been improving off a layoff and could be primed for a better effort.

Race 8

(3) JS TANGO has been pacing up a storm lately and will play catch me if you can.  (5) LYONS JOSPHJNR five-year-old stallion gets sent out for the top barn in the country and is always capable of a big mile.  (4) IWILLDOWHATIDO has been pacing some consistent miles and could use some racing luck; use underneath.

Race 9

(6) KIRTY DREAM gets a key post edge advantage on his competition and will look to use it to the best of his ability; fires early.  (8) VICTORY IS COMING mare is approaching half of a million in earnings.  The 10-year-old trotter could be stacked up early making it a tough go.  (7) JULIANS CAESAR comes off a big win but could be far back early.

Race 10

In a tough race to handicap (1) BLACK ACE HANOVER gets the rail and has shown a big burst of speed with a good trip.  (5) PARTYATBARTSPLACE despite the big morning line the gelding could be a major player.  (4) TOMMY TWO SHOES owns some gate speed which could put him in a decent spot late.

Race 11

(8) NORMA'S ROSE takes a big hike in class off a victory and has a tough post to overcome, however the mare can get out of the gate faster than anybody in the field  (9) JESSE'S MESSENGER made the most money in the field last year and is a threat with any kind of a trip.  (3) KAHOKU finally draws inside and should get an aggressive drive.

Race 12

(4) T RED can pace big miles from time to time and gets a good driver change.  (2) CHASE THE SUN has been tough to beat when he makes the lead; fires early.  (1) LOST JEWELS never offers value and rarely wins; use underneath.

Race 13

(6) CHIPS GALORE raced big last out from a tough post being used multiple times.  (1) AT DAYBREAK looks to just be back in racing shape after a long layoff; big chance.  (3) ACTION METRO MAX could have had an excuse with the off track last out; threat.

Race 14

(1) YOULL THINK OF ME owns three wins on the year which is more than the field combined.  (9) BEEEYOUUUUUU showed a ton of gate speed last out before tiring.  The pacer faces easier and keeps a hot driver.  (4) HALLIN GATOR comes off a break but had hit the board in three straight prior to last start.

Race 15

(5) GENUINE STAR N has had some tough racing luck in his last few and will offer a much better price.  (4) CYCLONE ASHORE drew off last out and could be better third start for new connections.   (9) SINGIN BLUES has some positives and has raced nicely for a new trainer.
