Race 2

(8) ANNIE'S MASTER six-year-old owns good gate speed and should offer a big price from the outside.   (7) AL BROWN looks terrible on paper but has beaten better on the year.  (3) WILD NORDIC has just been racing evenly; command a price.

Race 3

(1) WESTERN RANGE pacing gelding gets sent out for a high percentage trainer and is one of few contenders in the race.  (2) FOREVER GOOD has had an unbelievable last three starts taking heavy tote action in each after a long run of finishing distanced in every race; threat.  (4) U BETTOR WATCH OUT just scored a victory at this level but will need more.

Race 4

(4) CINCINNATI MYSTRES scored at a price in a lifetime mark last week.  The mare gets sent out for a very inconsistent trainer but is a threat with a similar effort.  (9) FASHION GLIDE is 0 for twelve on the year but keeps the top driver; threat.  (7) GET PACKIN has been very consistent but needs to make an easy early lead for his best chance.

Race 5

In a weak and inconsistent field full of question marks (5) SOMEONECALLTHEPOPO will look to steal the race at a price in his first lifetime start.  The pacer is one of few with upside in the race.  (4) BLACK LACE picks up a huge driver change but has raced very poorly; use caution.  (3) TE'S CONMYSOCKSOFF gets sent out for a capable trainer and should be in line for a better trip.

Race 6

(3) THE CLASSIC Z TAM drops back down to the bottom level and has been pacing faster than most of the field.  (4) PANDAPOCKET has yet to win on the year but did race better last start; threat.   (1) J F COOKIN gets the best post but is best used underneath.

Race 7

(1) ES MUCHO nice looking gelding was impressive last out and will look to make it two straight to kick off the year.  (2) UNLIMITED WINNER went a huge three-quarters of a mile last out before coming to a walk.  If the 5-year-old can ration out his speed he can hit the ticket at a price.  (8) UF CASHNMYCHIPS filly owns a good burst speed but could have a tough time finding a way into the race.

Race 8

(2) RICK'S CROSSROADS drops in class and should be in line for a good trip.  (1) FLYING METRO wasn't far off in this class last out and should be closer turning for home.  (8) THEY CALL ME GORDY is facing much weaker but needs to find a way into the race; command a price.

Race 9

(2) HALLIN bumps up in class but finds a suspect bunch.  (3) STRANGE HANOVER has not won in a very long time but has been knocking on the door and could threaten with some racing luck.  (8) MIDNIGHT DRAGON heavy morning line favorite was a dominant winner in this class a few starts back; threat.

Race 10

(7) ACTIVATOR gets sent out for hot connections and will be tough to beat if the pacer makes the top early.  (1) TERROR OF THETRACK would need much more to get his picture taken but paced a decent mile last out.  (3) CYCLONE ASHORE bumps up in class but showed a decent burst of speed last out.

Race 11

(4) SJ'S BLISSFUL GUY dropped and popped last out impressively.  A similar effort puts him in the mix.   (1) SAND HICKORY gets sent out first start for a new trainer and picks up a top driver.  (2) WAYLON HANOVER has been much better in a new barn; threat.

Race 12

(5) INDEPENDENT SPIRIT will be looking to drop and pop against a weak bunch; short price.  (3) OBLIGATIONS pacer makes his third start for new connections and showed some improvement in the qualifier.  (4) HERE COMES WHITEY rarely wins but could hit the ticket underneath at a price.

Race 13

(4) SINGIN BLUES picks up the top driver and will be tough with an easy early lead.  (6) JACK FINN has been knocking on the door but needs a smooth trip.  (2) FIERCE DESIRE picked up a victory at this level last out but needs more; command a price.

Race 14

(5) GET GOIN MEL will be very tough to beat with a smooth trip.  (4) BUDDY LOU made the most money in the field last year and went a sneaky good effort last out.  (2) BAGEL MAN is just now back in racing shape and owns a decent burst of speed.

Race 15

In the toughest race to handicap on the card (9) FOREVER HAPPY will offer a monster price and just needs a good setup for a shot late.  (7) GRAB A CRAB takes a big drop in competition but could need a start over the track; use caution.  (4) VANISCAPE races better forwardly and will also offer a big price.
