- June 18, June 25 workouts match barn's juvenile filly Officer Flirt (finished fourth in career debut at Saratoga on August 10 with 47 Beyer)

Analysis:
SMOKIN HERO showed good speed in both career starts, and may prove tough to catch.
PARAMEDIC was no match for Smokin Hero at Belmont, but should show normal second-out improvement for an overdue barn.
REMARKABLE STORM chased a runaway winner on July 27, and has a race over the track.
STAY ALITTLE WHILE adds Lasix after a wide journey, and can improve. TRISTE DOBLE Q attracts Edgar Prado, and shows some decent workouts HOT PACE has quality in her family, and Barclay Tagg is dangerous with these types. CRIMINAL MATTERS, from the first crop of Travers winner Ten Most Wanted, may want more distance. GARGANTUA shows a fifteen-day gap in his work tab.

Selections:
1. Smokin Hero
2. Paramedic
3. Remarkable Storm

The Play:
Smokin Hero - Paramedic Exacta;
Smokin Hero - Remarkable Storm Exacta

Analysis:
EARLY RESPONSE wasn't helped when this race was redrawn, and he was saddled with the rail post. Still, he is bred both sides for speed, and looks like an interesting new face for a barn that historically does well with juvenile debut runners at Saratoga.
BITABAZ adds Lasix for his second start and that, coupled with the drop in class, is a very powerful angle in these types of races. He didn't look very comfortable racing on his wrong lead in upper stretch on July 10, but should benefit from the experience.
MOONSHINE MANIA drops into statebred competition for the first time after facing tougher open foes at Monmouth. It should be noted, however, that the time of the July 20 race was fractionally slower than a $50,000 maiden claimer for juvenile fillies.
MR. PETERSSON adds blinkers, has early speed, and drops in class. He should be a strong pace factor at the very least, and was flattered when Dagnabit returned from the debut run to prevail in stakes company.
PURPLE EAGLE adds blinkers after a dull debut. THE THIRD DEGREE missed the break in his first start, and then had the misfortune to face a runaway winner. SCOOTY THE PRO also broke poorly in his debut, and may prefer faster ground. SHIFTY GUY goes out for excellent connections, but is bred for distance and, perhaps, grass. SOONASIGETPAID and KARAKORUM PIRATE both may need a race or two.

Selections:
1. Early Response
2. Bitabaz
3. Moonshine Mania

Analysis:
CONCORDE'S DANCE has a solid turf pedigree, and Stanley Hough is having a nice year with his first-time starters.
DEBBIE H. has a lot of class in her female family, and the More Than Readys are more than capable of running well first-out on grass.
AMERICAS DREAMING just missed in her debut in Ireland, and figures to be a strong factor if able to break in from the also-eligible list.
THERE ARE RAINBOWS goes out for potent debut connections, and shows some decent workouts for her coming-out party.
UNIFORM is stuck deep on the AE list, but Mark Casse is one of the more underrated first-out trainers around. NO SPEED LIMIT hasn't been out since Keeneland, but it's hard to merely discount anything Wesley Ward sends on the track. That polytrack race ended up producing a couple of next-out winners. FAST TIGRESS adds Lasix after an even try on dirt. Entrymate TRUE BLISS couldn't overcome a speed-favoring track last time, and would prove tough if this race is rained off the turf. VEGAS WEDDING is by a quick first-out sire, and shows swift works for excellent barn. JUST LIVIN A DREAM has speed on top, and stamina on the bottom. AMBER'S EDGE may need more distance. CLOSING SPEED is another Casse firster, but there aren't any published workouts since July 18. JACEY'S REWARD didn't do much on dirt at Ellis Park. SUGARANDICE needs to pick it up.
