Race 2

(7) HOOREI FOR FLASH needs to find a way into the race but has an outside shot against an inconsistent bunch.  (1) DR JACKS SHACK seven-year-old gelding gets the best post, drops in class, but gets a very suspect driver.  (2) HERE COMES WHITEY could be in a good spot to hit the board late but is probably best used underneath.

Race 3

In a wide open and evenly matched race (3) VICTORY CANDY MAN should offer a good price jumping up in class and has been competitive at this level.  (2) ELIAN'S VICTORY was a dominant winner last out but faces much tougher; threat.  (1) NORMA'S ROSE has tons of gate speed but lacks stamina late.

Race 4

In another tough race to handicap (4) FOX RIVER MARK went a big effort last out just missing at a huge price and benefits from a much better pilot.  (5) KENNAIRN LIFE SIGN will also offer a big price and just needs some racing luck to have a chance to hit the board late.  (9) CRUISE ON OSBORNE has been pacing some decent miles and will get a ground-saving trip.

Race 5

(9) CHROME SEELSTER gets a good driver change and has shown more consistency than most in the race.  (5) SASSY OSBORNE burned cash last out from a tough post.  The 4-year-old pacer will offer a much better price and races better forwardly placed.  (3) WESTERN CHURCHILL never got into the mile last out also as a heavy favorite but could be the horse to beat with an effort prior to his last.

Race 6

(9) ANNIE'S ROCKETMAN will be looking for the top early and has been sharp.  (1) HELLO CARLO is very inconsistent from week to week but should get an aggressive drive from the rail. (3) MISS LULU BELLE went a monster effort up in class last out.  The trotting mare faces easier and would hit the board with a similar effort.

Race 7

(4) SKULL OF ROSES could be a great play coming off the fair lines and has beaten much better this year. (1) OSBORNE'S YANKEE veteran pacer drops in class and looks to be one of few threats to the top choice.  (2) GEM HEIST is on a roll for a hot barn but will need more to hit the top spot bumping up in class.

Race 8

(2) GUN SHOW is winless on the year but should offer the better price and has been racing against much better competition.  (1) LITE ME UP was ultra impressive off a long layoff and would be tough to deny with any kind of improvement second start back.  (4) ACTION METRO MAX has been very disappointing getting consistently picked off late; command a price.

Race 9

(3) LB'S ALAMERICANJOY has been improving for proven connections and has yet to show his best.  (2) BESTINTHEBUSINESS has more ability than the majority of the field but could be a question mark on the small track.  (5) THE CLASSIC Z TAM could barely get around the track in two minutes at the beginning of the year.  However the pacer has excelled for the new connections and is tough to leave off the ticket off his last line.

Race 10

(2) TRUE TO MACH has been unstoppable in his last two and faces an easier bunch.  (3) CHASE THE SUN gelding went a huge effort from a tough spot last out and could be formidable if he makes the front.  (1) THORN IN YOUR SIDE should be sitting in a great spot turning for home.

Race 11

(7) SUPER LUSTRE finds a much easier spot and just needs a smooth trip for a big chance late.  (5) ZORGWIJK HEAVENLY has also been facing some tough customers and should be out and rolling early in the mile.  (6) DIAMOND HUNTER gelding has an outside shot, owns a ton of back class, and was really good last out.

Race 12

(7) GRANDE SEELSTER went a winning effort last start despite not closing ground on the leaders.  The pacer could be on the upswing and has the right pilot to find a way into the race at a price.  (9) ALLAMERICAN PEWTER didn't miss by much to a better group; threat.  (1) BEANS AND WEENIES gets a good post and has the ability with a trip.

Race 13

(5) FOREVER GOOD drops out of the Open and could look to hit the top early; big chance.  (2) MORELAND FLASH looks terrible on paper but would have been a favorite in this race not too long ago.  (6) REBEL JET five-year-old gelding raced well coming off a layoff and should improve with a start under his belt.

Race 14

(2) CYCLONE ASHORE gets sent out for a streaky trainer that has been hot as of late.   (1) KEVLAR HANOVER is just now rounding back into racing shape and has a lot of gate speed to utilize from the rail.   (5) NO SHENANIGANS gelding has been dominating this level but could have a target on his back and will offer low value.

Race 15

(7) HEZA STAR CRUISER takes a significant drop in class but still should offer a nice price in a tough race to handicap.  (2) MILLIONDOLLAR ART was competitive against much better and finds a spot to do some damage. (1) FUDGE well-bred pacer just races evenly and is probably best used underneath even with top connections.
