Race 1

Race 2

(5) CALLING A VICTORY put in a real nice qualifier and could be ready for a big effort off the bench.  (6) HIGH STAKES BANKER does have some ability and seems to race better with tough trips.   (7) SCHALYN mare raced well up in class in her first start in almost six months.  The veteran trotter is a threat even from the tough post.

Race 3

(5) MAKIN GREEN LAVEC trotting mare could have gained some confidence in her most recent win.  (1) AZUR comes off a win but takes a significant hike in class and needs a trip.  (3) ROSE RUN MAC was an easy winner down in class but this is a much tougher spot.

Race 4

(1) CINDERELLA STORY well bred mare makes her first start for a new trainer and was the driver's choice.  (6) LISMARASLADY drops down in class and picks up the top driver; threat.  (5) MISS HKB showed good closing ability in her last effort and needs a similar setup.

Race 5

(5) NEAR THE LIMIT gelding almost made it two straight last out.  The veteran trotter finds a much weaker field than his last few.  (1) VACATION ANGEL was a big upset winner first time in a new barn and could have more to offer.  (3) OXFORD HORNET owns gate speed but would need much more to hit the top spot.

Race 6

(3) CATCHING KATIE put in a huge move last start and a repeat of that makes it two in a row.  (7) ANNIE'S ROCKETMAN if the nice-looking trotter makes the top he could be the only threat to the top choice.  (6) FORTUNE SAILOR has been racing gamely but was no match for the top choice last out.

Race 7

(6) MOM'S LOOKER keeps the top driver, gets an improved post, and finds a really inconsistent field.  (3) MASTER LAD PRO at times shows a good burst of speed; threat.  (8) TYRANY SEELSTER is one of the fastest trotters in the race but will need a lot of luck from the worst starting spot.

Race 8

(5) MARTINA'S QUEEN is inconsistent from week to week but can trot up a storm when she decides to.  (4) UP FRONT STRIKING is on the comeback trail from after over a year off and looks to just now be back in racing shape.  (3) MISS EVA CASH is fast enough to get the job done against this bunch if the pilot can work out a trip.

Race 9

(3) TIMER picks up a huge driver change and looks to be tough to catch.  (5) ATAWAY AIDAN takes a drop in class after a few issues; use underneath.  (6) CHIP'S DREAMER comes off a layoff for a new trainer and probably needs a start.

Race 10

(1) TICKLE MY FANTASY connections are on fire and the gelding gets another great post to be sent down the road; short price.  (9) JJ NEWTON gelding is probably the only threat to the top choice if he can get a decent stalking spot out of the gate.  (7) LITLE BIT SIDEWAYS went a really big effort last start but will need to find a way into the race.

Race 11

(4) RAMEMBER picks up the top driver off an easy win and looks to make it two straight.  (6) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY had some eye-popping form reversals last year and now makes his third start off a layoff; threat.  (1) SUNBURNED VERN bumps up in class but does get the best post; use underneath.

Race 12

(3) NEELY SPRING gelding didn't come back off a layoff sharp.  The 4-year-old trotter put in a much better effort last out which could signal a return to form.  (1) LA'SENT mare should utilize her gate speed with the rail giving her an ideal trip.  (4) STRIKING LIGHTNING would need a lot of luck to upset; use underneath.

Race 13

In a wide open and tough race to handicap (9) DEBT CONSOLIRAIDER will offer a huge price and could be better second start in a new barn.  (4) LUCKY IVAN also makes his second start in a new barn and benefits from the top driver.  (3) DREW BROMAC N looks to be facing a slightly easier field than his last two.

Race 14

(3) ALIGNED ANOVER well bred gelding sticks out on paper and takes a huge drop in class; short price.  (1) FOREVER HAPPY has the only shot to upset the top choice but should probably be keyed underneath.  (5) FULLY LOADED GUN has turned it around recently but is facing better.

Race 15

(5) MOST REMARKABLE gets sent out for a low percentage pilot but is probably sitting on the fastest horse.  (9) CATEGORY SIX classy gelding picks up a huge drivers change and looks to be in a good spot to do some damage.  (2) QUINTAL BAYAMA gets a good post and looks to be in line for a ground saving trip.
