Race 1

Race 2

(4) M A ROY takes a significant drop in class and finds a field much softer field.  (3) POLO JOHNNY made a break last out just when it looked like he might have been ready for a good effort.  (2) ALWAYS READY gets good post relief and also faces easier.

Race 3

(2) NATE K put in an average qualifier but does have a touch of back class in a weak field.  The 10-year-old should offer a huge price.  (7) SOUTH JERSEY HEY might offer better value with the bad post.  The well bred trotter dominated last out showing a good burst of speed.  (4) CJ'S VICTORY really put in a lackluster effort last start but finds a field full of question marks.

Race 4

(3) THE CLASSIC Z TAM looks to be knocking on the door and gets sent out for a trainer coming off a career year.  (5) DREW BROMAC N has good closing ability and should be close turning for home. (6) BRING IN THE NOISE raced gamely last out and looks to make it two straight.

Race 5

(3) B COR THOMAS actually drops off a convincing win; short price.  (2) WILD RIDE looks to be in line for another nice trip up close; use underneath.  (4) JAY JAY REDSKY might save ground before trying to find room late.

Race 6

In a very soft field (6) JOJO IN THE SKY should offer a fair price despite being the morning line favorite and is the only horse in the race that has shown any kind of closing ability.  (9) VANISCAPE should be in line for a ground saving trip; threat.  (1) I RECKON SO gelding has been racing evenly but does draw the rail; command a price.

Race 7

(5) HERE COMES BUBBA gets the benefit of the top driver and comes off a nice win.  (9) CARELESS LOVE was too close to a fast pace last out but could shake loose late for a piece. (1) MYSTICAL SAM draws the best post but hasn't shown interest in a month.

Race 8

(7) DIVA DU JOUR take a peek how the trainers' other entry did in race four to try and gauge the pacer.  The mare has been off almost a month but finds a wide-open race.  (5) DAWN OF TREY wasn't on the gate last out but raced gamely prior; threat.  (9) PICTONIAN ESPRESSO was used aggressively last race and might have needed the start.

Race 9

(4) NEELY SPRING comes off a long layoff but did qualify nicely and had a good record last year as a 3-year-old.  (2) MISS LULU BELLE trotting mare gets an excellent post and should be closer turning for home.  (1) ANNIE'S MASTER five-year-old just needs to ration out her speed to be a threat.

Race 10

(3) BLESSING STONE hasn't had a good post in almost three months and the connections probably want an aggressive drive.  (4) INDEPENDENT SPIRIT picks up the top driver and comes off two straight victories but is moving up in class.  (9) MOOVE IT will look to make it four in a row but could be hampered by starting in the second tier.  The gelding likes to roll the dice up front and the driver will be looking to move early.

Race 11

(3) TALLERTHANWOODY is racing gamely, gets a good post, and finds a suspect field.  (1) TRIPLE G makes his second start off a short layoff and comes off a decent first race.  (2) MACAO has been racing consistently showing good versatility.

Race 12

(3) R E SHAWN has raced big in two straight and finds a much easier field than his last.  (2) SENATOR SAM made the most money in the field last year and finds an ideal spot to do some damage.  (4) LEGACY CHIP looks to be a slow starter but might benefit from a fast pace up front.

Race 13

(6) TAKE A WALK did just that on the field last out drawing off easily.  The well bred Stallion doesn't face much and any improvement makes it three straight.  (5) LOMBO POWERSHOT comes off a nice win and has been a new horse since the trainer change.  (2) ALLAMEIRCAN JUNIOR looks to be pacing fast miles but comes off a scratch and has just been racing evenly; use caution.

Race 14

(1) AE WESERN INGOT raced well last out but was slightly disappointing not being able to get by late with an ideal trip.  The gelding draws the rail and should be in line for a great trip.  (3) JAYNE ROCKS finds a bad field but looks to offer no value and is only two for thirty-one lifetime.  (4) KOUTZY does have a touch of speed at times in a soft field.

Race 15

(9) ICONIC STYLE was knocking on the door before throwing in a couple of clunkers.  The pacer needs some racing luck but could upset at a big price in the right scenario.  (3) BLUE SCOOTIN MATT parlayed a perfect pocket trip last out to victory and could take advantage of some early gate speed.  (7) CJ'S SWEET RACER gets a tough post and will need to find a way into the race; use underneath.
