Race 2

(6) SAND ROYAL BLU gelding trotter blew the doors off of them last out at a nice price.  If the well-bred trotter minds his manners it's just a formality.  (1) BUCKEYE PATTY gets the best post and looks to be one of few threats to the top choice.  (3) HOGUE'S ROCKIE veteran gelding has some ability and could be in line for a ground saving trip; use underneath.

Race 3

In an evenly matched race (4) ART AT HEART was parked the mile last out but fits the condition well and could be sitting on an improved effort.  (2) CARAMEL DUMPLING was sharp a handful of starts ago but has just been racing evenly; command a price.  (1) SEE YA LATER DUDE drops in class and draws the rail; threat.

Race 4

(7) TRIPLE G gelding gets a below average pilot but with a little racing luck and the right trip could score an upset.  (6) ROMPAWAY ELVIS trotter was an easy winner last out, gets a good driver change, but does bump up in class.  (2) HELLO CARLO was racing well before the scratch a few starts ago and might be ready to turn it around.

Race 5

(3) BASILIO BLUE CHIP doesn't win often but should get an easy lead down in class; big chance. (1) SLATTS gelding draws the best post and closed some ground from a tough post last race.  (2) REDNECK RIVIERA was 0 for 36 last year but has been knocking on the door and does find a suspect field.

Race 6

In a field with few contenders (7) SAINTFRANCIS put in a big mile last out racing gamely.  The well-bred trotter appears to just now be back in racing shape and drops in class.  (4) OLIN is definitely a threat especially if he makes the front.  (3) LA'SENT mare owns a class edge on the majority of the field and should offer a big price despite dropping in class.

Race 7

(1) CIRO draws the rail again and trotted a lot faster than most of the field last out.  (7) VESPER AS is handicapped by the driver but does have ability in a weak field.  (2) ABS SPEEDY HALL makes his second start back off a layoff, gets a good post, and should show some improvement.

Race 8

(1) NOBLE TRICK five-year-old stallion sticks out like a sore thumb on paper.  He drops in class, draws the rail, and will be very tough to beat.  (6) BUSTER MEE N raced well last out but did have things his own way for most of the mile.  The gelding pacer could be the only threat to the top choice if he makes it to the front.  (5) GUNMANS ACE makes his third start back off a long layoff and should be tighter.

Race 9

(7) LASER LUCY has been facing much better and just needs to work out a trip to find the winner's circle.  (9) COLBY D could be a huge threat if he can get a decent spot up close out of the gate.  (4) CANWECHEATUMNWHEN ships in from Michigan and has been off three weeks but is fast enough to win if ready.

Race 10

(5) GENUINE STAR N put in a huge effort last out pacing a nice mile and is versatile.  (4) MACH TO THE LIMIT never got into the mile last out from a bad post but should be involved early.  (7) JOLTFROMTHEBLUE would have been the horse to beat with an experienced pilot; threat.

Race 11

(2) AL BROWN takes a significant drop in class and has been trotting faster than most of the field. (5) VACATION ANGEL has just been trotting evenly but if there was a threat to the top choice this is a candidate.  (3) MISS EVA CASH gets a good driver change that had good success with the well bred mare winning two straight a few starts ago.

Race 12

(1) MOOVEIT gets a great post, has good gate speed, and should be tough to keep off the top two spots.  (2) LITTLE BIT SIDEWAYS drops back into a claimer and should find the competition easier.  (3) ASKPEDIA could hit the board with a good effort.

Race 13

(6) SWEETHOMEALABAMA A paced a good mile last out and looks to find an easier bunch.  (5) ITSOVALIGHTSOUT raced big from a bad post flying home last out but does take a big bump in class.  (4) CUSTERS LAST STAND just raced evenly last out but gets a better post and fit's the class well.

Race 14

(9) CHIP'S SHADOW has been trotting faster than most of the field, gets a good driver change, and takes a double-drop in class.  (4) ELIAN EXPRESS has shown a good burst in his last two and just needs to time his move right.  (6) DC CHUG-A-LUG gelding also gets a good driver change and has more to offer than he has shown.

Race 15

(9) NDANA FAVORITE well-bred gelding is probably ready to pop any week.  (6) KOBY'S HOOT can really fly out of the gate and if that's the case it could put the mare in the money.  (1) COLUMBIA ART gelding is racing gamely and gets the best post.
