Analysis:
MONA FROM DELTONA finds a soft spot for her career debut, and her sire is having an excellent year with debut runners. Trainer Richard Violette shows very good numbers with his first-time starters, and the work tab looks passable.
SARATOGA MOONLIGHT has been working steadily since early June for barn that is clicking with 27% of their starters in 2008. The second-crop sire had a big year with his firsters in 2007, but has stumbled a bit this year.
RUNNING ON GUILT didn't break well from the rail in her debut, but ran on evenly to the wire. She should improve, and looms a strong contender for Gary Contessa.
BELLEVUE BELLE raced wide behind Runnin on Guilt in the debut, but Eoin Harty is having a fantastic meet, and his charge should show more in this spot. KARAKORUM CAYU adds Lasix for the second start, and that is often a potent angle with young horses. DELLSLITTLERUNAWAY goes out for strong barn, and has been in training since late May, but the workouts don't leap off the page. BEST FOR LAST showed speed against maiden special weights, and takes the biggest drop in the game. She wouldn't be a surprise under Edgar Prado. SMOKIN PISTOL is bred both sides for speed, but is entered for below her yearling purchase price. JUST ANOTHER STORY draws way outside, and must avoid a wide trip. MILLYSGLO and IRISH MAMA both debut for red-hot barn. ADELFIA may want a bit more ground.

Selections:
1. Mona From Deltona
2. Saratoga Moonlight
3. Running on Guilt

The Play:
Mona From Deltona to Win and Place at 4-1 or more

Analysis:
Taking a shot with JACOB'S DREAM, a son of Freud that should go off at huge odds for low-profile connections. The work tab is interesting, to say the least, with a mile breeze followed by a three-furlong blowout. This is a tough race so we'll go for a price.
HANGINGONTHEFUTURE attracts John Velazquez for his career debut, and the Flying Zee homebred is kin to a pair of grass winners.
SEEKING ELDORADO goes out for hot barn, and may loom the horse to beat, but his sire has been cold this year, and the jury is still out on whether the Hook and Ladders will turf.
SARATOGA STEVE broke well in his turf debut, but was wrangled off the pace by Ramon Dominguez. He finished evenly, and should move forward if able to break in from the also-eligible list. SCIENTIST showed speed in well-bet debut at Delaware, and should prove a pace factor once again. CORONATION DAY has some turf on the bottom of the pedigree, and George Weaver is having a fantastic meet. HAYNESFIELD is by a promising first-crop sire, and can factor for top debut barn if this race is washed off the grass. J T MOORE tired in debut on dirt, but switches to Edgar Prado, and should be prominent when they turn for home. ROUTINE ADDENDUM shows steady breezes, but may want a bit more ground. CAT THREE APPROACH will make debut for underrated state bred connections if this race is switched to the main track. SHOW ME THE CASH had trouble on dirt, but must improve here. GARGANTUA shows a bullet work on the lawn for barn that can put one over on turf. GRAND MORNING needs to pick it up.

Analysis:
MEGALICIOUS is a half-sister to the fleet Abbondanza, the pacesetter in the 2004 Breeders' Cup Sprint. Her sire gets a good number of debut runners, and she shows a sharp five-furlong work for her debut.
DISTANT STORM has a pedigree that is loaded with class, but Dallas Stewart has much stronger numbers with second-time starters than with juveniles.
REMEDY showed speed in her career debut on turf, but didn't seem very comfortable over the yielding going. She should be a pace factor once again.
SO PROBABLE shows a pair of bullet workouts for her debut, but draws way outside, and is bred for more distance.
No one has been hotter with firsters at this meet than Kiaran McLaughlin, but his SOUTHERN OAKS must overcome the sometimes intimidating inside post. GLACKEN QUEEN gives the top pick a solid entrymate. ROCK CANDY is bred both sides for distance, and may need a run. BELLE JOUR adds blinkers after disappointing greatly in her debut. Her second dam is Sky Beauty so perhaps she wants more ground. IMANDRA tired badly in the slop, and may face more pace heat here. CATMANDU and LEONINE are both by the hot first-crop sire Lion Heart.

Selections:
1. Megalicious
2. Distant Storm
3. Remedy

Analysis:
MIA'S FIRST shows some quick works for her debut, and the sire has been getting some first-out winners lately. Cornelio Velasquez takes the mount, and the $7,000 yearling purchase should offer some value as she tackles top pedigrees and connections.
JUSTWHISTLEDIXIE ran a nice race despite trouble in her slop debut, and should move up from that effort. She earned a strong Beyer Speed Figure that day, and wouldn't be a surprise for barn that seemingly can do no wrong with young horses this meet.
CLEAR CUT ran well enough to be third in her debut at Ellis Park, and now switches to Edgar Prado.
FIRST TO COME HOME shows a pair of quick three furlong drills in preparation for her debut. TAPITHA get the Lasix and blinkers makeover after faltering in her debut. Expect her to be on or near the lead in the early stages. BE SMART and STAYAWAYSTELLA have solid pedigrees, but the works don't leap off the page. ATALAYA has speed in her pedigree, but the works don't look that great, and Todd Pletcher's main rider, John Velazquez, goes elsewhere. YOU CAN DREAM worked a furlong in less than ten seconds before selling for over 57 times the stud fee of sire Cat Dreams in April. It's a Baffert baby so you can't count her out.
