Race 1

Race 2

(3) SHELBY LU bore out and could not last as the prohibitive favorite. She is the one to beat. (7) GOLDEN SLIPPER closed strongly in last and just missed. (3) CIN POSSIBLE moves in after being parked the mile in last and after making wide rallied in two before that.

Race 3

(6) HEZATRAIN won last off the qualifier by circling the field and looms large as a repeat winner. (7) CLASSY CHASSY has been second best last two. Why not again? (5) BEAUTY CHIP flashed enough late speed in last to earn a long look in here.

Race 4

(6) KATIE AND J has been good in all recent and won two of those five. (4) OIL SLICKER won two of last three and will be flashing his best in the lane. (1) NOT AGAIN WOMAN was parked for her life in last. Moves back to the rail and will have an easier time of it.

Race 5

(4) NORDIC VENTURE got stuck in a bad place in last. Got claimed and should get better racing luck tonight. (6) COLBY D roared home to win his qualifier after taking a couple of months off. (5) ABBY has some modest late speed and cannot be discarded.

Race 6

(7) JAWORSKI tried the front end two back, tried off the pace in last. Came up short in both. Tonight rides good cover to the lane, tips and roars home. (2) COLUMBIA ART had traffic to clear in lat and flashed enough late rally to earn a long look. (5) MISTYS DIGNITY was parked for life in last and can be tough with better trip.

Race 7

(3) NAVAHOE entered two races versus this kind upon shipping in and his first effort was Monday night. Results are unknown at the moment but this guy will be given strong consideration whatever the result was. (4) LAVROS VISION N has late foot plenty enough to threaten these. (9) ROMAN ROCKS need only clear early logjam to get a chance with this crew through the stretch.

Race 8

(5) FREDSABULLDOG finally bared his fangs enough to kick some tail in last and looms large with similar effort. (9) I O ONE crushed last group and ships in too sharp to ignore. (3) GO SMARTY BRAND will be close when it counts and can land a share.

Race 9

(5) GALE FORCE HANOVER has won all but one of last six and gets the call again. (1) VICTORY CANDY MAN was nailed on the wire in last and the rail will only give this speedy guy a better chance. (2) HERBEDAONE jogged two back and closed late despite being parked a long time in last.

Race 10

(4) TICKLE MY FANTASY closed a ton and paid a ton in last. (1) HANKS KID has speed and the rail and used both assets to notch a win in last. (7) ALLAMERICAN LASER has late speed and has been giving a solid effort in all recent outings.

Race 11

(4) REMBRANDT VAN RYN after so many claims in last few races he may be getting confused where to after the race but veteran has his share of wins over long career and is the one to beat in here. (7) SKEDADDLE HANOVER blew away all comers in last with big score at nearly 40-1. (2) GUNNIN FORAFIGHT should be up close throughout in well matched field.

Race 12

(2) HAT tried the front three back, rallied late two back and rallied too soon in last. Looks like he is tight enough. Now he needs to get his timing down. (4) TOES timed her move perfectly in last to the tune of a new lifetime mark and needs to be that good again. (5) BIT O LOOKS races third over the track in recent days after shipping in and would be tough if ready for best.

Race 13

(4) FREEFALL had two wins, two seconds in last five out of town. (1) HOLLYWOOD HUSTLER has speed and the rail and has a win three back. (9) CINNAMON ROLLS should be able to get away in good order with enough speed in the first tier and that will make a late threat.

Race 14

(7) FARMER JONES took a year off, returned with decent qualifier two back. First race off the layoff was credible and the `farmer' can sow the  seeds of victory despite the post. (5) WILD RIDE has been flashing early speed in recent and has shown late speed win a few races back. With right trip he could bring it home. (8) HIGH GEAR WINNER put in quite the effort three back but made his move a bit too early.

Race 15

(3) POWER ROCK rushed home too late in last. Races second time since shipping in and would be quite hard to hold off with similar move. (5) DIAL A DRAGON has been touring the track while racing out of town. Faces slightly weaker in here and should improve some. (4) LUCKY BRAD took some time off, raced a qualifier and showed some renewed life in last which was the first off the qualifier. Vet is eligible to show some more improvement this evening.
