Race 1 

(1) TAGMASTER raced big last out and gets the rail.  (2) HUSTLINHANNAH mare has picked her game up in the last few months and should be in line for a great trip.  (3) KAHOKU gelding has beaten much better on the year and is capable of an upset in the right scenario.

Race 2 

(1) TOUGH CALL gets a big post edge on his main competition off a nice victory; top driver’s choice.  (3) HALL OF MUSCLES is a big player against these with a smooth trip; threat.  (7) GET PACKIN is sharp right now but needs some racing luck with a negative driver change.  

Race 3 

(2) VICTORINTHEVALLEY finds the weakest division of the series and will look to go coast to coast.  (4) SMOOTH POWER gelding could need a start but should offer some value underneath if he’s ready.  (5) CHANGE THE FUTURE gets sent out for an inconsistent trainer but has been competitive against tougher on the year.  

Race 4 

(2) ON THE GREEN gelding should offer a nice price with a new pilot.  The pacer was roughed up last out but has shown a big burst of speed in two straight.  (3) SHAM;S BIG GUY owns a good win percentage in an evenly matched field.  (9) ACE OF ACES N pacing mare makes her third start back for a capable barn; threat. 

Race 5 

(5) HEEZA NORDIC has been unstoppable in two straight; short price.  (4) LUCKY CHARM well bred mare makes her first start in a new barn and could have some room to improve.  (6) SAINTFRANCIS has been much better in three straight but faces much tougher; use underneath. 

Race 6 

(4) HEP four-year-old stallion picks up the top driver and finds a wide open race.  (3) SOULFUL DELIGHT owns some back class and will be very dangerous with an early lead.  (2) NORDIC VENTURE had no shot last out but should offer a price and will be much closer turning for home.

Race 7 

(7) BET ON BLUE set a lifetime mark last start in a dominant victory and faces an easier bunch.  (8) MARIGOLD BLOOM lightly raced filly is one of few with upside but will need to find a way into the race from a tough post.  (2) RACE ME ROCKY gelding could be in a great spot early on and should be in the mix for a piece underneath. 

Race 8 

(5) DETROITER can beat this field at a price if he stays pacing.  (6) SOUTHWIND RAMBO heavy morning line favorite will look to make it four in a row but will need more if the top choice brings his best effort.  (9) Q ZILLA has been competitive at this level but is best used underneath. 

Race 9 

In a wide open race (5) REALLY REALY SWEET could get a good spot out of the gate making him a threat late.  (1) LOU LOUS PRINCESS never had a shot last out but now gets the best post.  (9) DAY TO DAY well bred mare has flashed some ability in an evenly matched field. 

Race 10 

(1) JACK ATTACK BROWN faces much easier competition and has been pacing some decent miles.  (3) CRANK IT UP put in an eye-popping qualifier and could be ready off a layoff.  (8) ALERO BLUE CHIP gets sent out for capable connections and will be firing early. 

Race 11 

In a field with few contenders (5) UF FAST FEELIN looks to have tons of upside going a big three-quarters of a mile last out before breaking.  The pacer gets a downgrade in the bike but could be better than the field anyway.  (1) DABUNKA was the top driver’s choice but there is cause for concern off the last two lines; use caution.  (2) AS DUHARAS picks up a top driver and looks to be in line for a ground saving trip. 

Race 12 

(2) O’WOW gelding trotter needed his last start and should find this spot much easier.  (7) LULA’S LIL SWEETIE mare is 0 for the year but will offer a monster price in an inconsistent field.  (1) STONE COLD CASH mare has a chance if she minds her manners. 

Race 13 

(2) TIM’S FINALE gelding looks to have turned a corner last out crushing the field easily.  The pacer is right back in against similar and will run up the score with anything close to his last start.  (7) MOVIN’ N SHAKIN’ three-year-old gets sent out for a hot barn but will need more.  (1) ANOTHERROUNDOFDAVE finally gets post relief and should be driven aggressively. 

Race 14 

(2) BLACK ACE HANOVER pacer makes his second start for a hot trainer and gets a good post.  (4) YOULL THINK OF ME gets a huge driver change and could be ready for a better effort.  (8) QUIK GROOM gelding has been super sharp at this level but could have a tough time getting involved. 

Race 15 

(6) ROUNTUIT BLUEGRASS has beaten this bunch in three straight and doesn’t look to have much competition with a similar effort.  (9) BLACKHAWK LOOKOUT gets sent out for capable connections and is one of few threats in the race.  (1) BODACIOUS BECKY has paced some big miles but has yet to fire for a new barn. 

Race 16 

(6) INDEPENDENT SPIRIT picks up a big driver change in a tough race to gauge.  (4) ROUNDING THIRD has just been racing evenly but does take a significant drop in class.  (3) OSBORNE’S YANKEE doesn’t look the best on paper but has popped big miles out of the blue in the past; command a price.
