Race 1

(2) HEEZA NORDIC has a good career win record, picks up the top driver, and could offer a nice price having been off a month.  (5) SAINTFRANCIS jumps up quite a bit but was racing in the open not too long ago; threat.  (6) DAY TO DAY comes into the race off a victory but is facing tougher; command a price.

Race 2

(6) ZORGWIJK IMPACT nine-year-old stallion makes his first start for new connections and has been facing much tougher out east.  (2) CHRISTINA VICTORY closed nicely last out from a tough spot and should be closer turning for home.  (7) BIT O LOOKS will offer value underneath but needs some racing luck.

Race 3

(2) PYTHIA filly trotter makes her third start for a new trainer and has shown a big move when timed right.  (4) LOU LOUS PRINCESS mare picks up a big driver change and has the most wins in the field on the year by far.  (3) DOUBLE A GLORIA was improved last out but rarely hits the top spot.

Race 4

In a weak field full of few contenders (1) R MASTER SCOTT has been racing gamely and gets the best post.  (4) BLUE COLLAR RAIDER never had a chance last out but could be a threat at a price late.  (6) U BETTOR WATCH OUT gets sent out for proven connections but couldn't score from the rail last out; command a price.

Race 5

(1) LUCKY CHARM mare gets sent out first start for proven connections.  (2) NORDIC VENTURE picks back up the top driver and owns the most wins on the year; threat.  (3) STARBUX EDEN mare owns only one win but does own good gate speed; use underneath.

Race 6

In a weak and inconsistent field (6) MAJOR MONTE makes his first start in a new barn and is one of few with upside in the race.  (5) STAR MASTER FOX has put in some nice recent efforts and will be firing early.  (7) ACTION AUBREE ROSA filly needed her last race and should be much better second start back off a layoff.

Race 7

(2) MOVIN' N SHAKIN gelding was an easy winner first start in a new barn and was the driver's choice.  (4) BODACIOUS BECKY has been competitive against much better but could need an acclimating start over the track; command a price.  (3) JACKSONS SPIN gelding owns a big brush when timed right but gets a negative driver change.

Race 8

(9) LIFE LONG HANOVER gelding has just been trotting evenly but finds a wide-open race and is capable with a smooth trip.  (3) CHANGE THE FUTURE drops back in for a tag and was a dominating winner at this level the start prior.   (7) HUSTLINHANNAH mare has been racing gamely but needs to find a way into the race.

Race 9

(5) BEST DREAM SEEKER owns only one win on the year but has been pacing some faster than most of the field.  (9) ABBUYS LUCK takes a huge drop in class and could be closer turning for home; threat.  (3) FANTASYPAN was a game winner first out in a new barn off a month but looks to need more.

Race 10

(4) FEEL THE HEAT faces significantly weaker and will be driven very aggressively for a top trainer.  (1) LEE A BRYANT takes a big bump up in class but does get the best post with good gate speed.  (3) HE'S A BEACHBOY raced gamely last out but needs a trouble-free trip to hit the top spot; command a price.

Race 11

(2) QUIK GROOM was an easy winner from off the pace last start for a hot barn.  (4) ASTOUNDING HANOVER gelding has been putting in some nice efforts since entering a new barn and could be the only threat to the top choice.  (1) YOULL THINK OF ME gets the best post but could be tailing off; use underneath.

Race 12

(4) GET PACKIN has been facing much tougher competition out east and a similar effort to his last two makes him hard to beat.  (2) INQUIRING ANDY has a good win percentage, owns a good burst of speed off the gate, and also faces easier.  (5) VICTORINTHEVALLEY has some talent and comes off a nice easy win.

Race 13

(7) ROUNTUIT BLUEGRASS set a lifetime mark last race and finds an even weaker field; short price.  (2) RENATA filly was no match for the top choice last out but does have a good percentage of hitting the board.  (1) NIRVANA GEAR filly should be in line for a ground saving trip up close; use underneath.

Race 14

(4) DETROITER looks to be unstoppable against this group; fires early.  (6) ITSALLABOUTTONIGHT pacer looks terrible on paper but could offer value underneath for proven connections.  (2) INDOMITABLE SPIRIT has shown the ability to trot a big mile but is best used underneath.

Race 15

(5) MORELAND FLASH picks up a big driver change and takes a significant drop in class.  (9) TIDEWATER TOMAHAWK also picks up a top driver for capable connections.  (6) RICKY BLUE EYES could be the sleeper in the race at a price should the top choice falter.
