Analysis:
NIGHTIME APPEAL’s sire owns fantastic numbers with debut runners, and trainer Richard Dutrow Jr. is hitting at 43% on the year with newcomers. The five-furlong workout on August 23 looks solid, and Garrett Gomez is enticed to ride. Don’t be surprised if this one has some speed.
WHY TOMORROW’s sire was a quick one, and the bargain yearling purchase shows an interesting worktab that includes one drill on the grass. There is some class deep in this pedigree. ELLE SOCIETY debuts for the dangerous Mott barn, and she has been in training since Mid-May. Where’s Kent Desormeaux?
GOLDEN LEIGH goes out for an underrated first-out barn, and the recent gate work was quick. D J LIGHTNING makes debut for dangerous connections, but her workmate faltered badly against maiden special weight foes here yesterday afternoon.

Selections:
1. Nightime Appeal
2. Why Tomorrow
3. Elle Society

The play: Nightime Appeal to win at 2-1 or more

Analysis:
SHOP GLACK, a half-sister to recent Grade 1 winner Miss Shop, split horses on the turn of her career debut after being outsprinted in the early stages. She faced a stakes-bound filly in Syriana’s Song that day, and should benefit from the experience.
MAGGER BAGS shows several strong workouts in preparation for her career debut. While trainer Dallas Stewart doesn’t have a strong winning percentage with debut performers, he sure had Syriana’s Song ready to rumble first-out (finished second with 87 Beyer) earlier in the meet. Magger Bags should be used in all formats. LUNAR BEACH adds Lasix for second lifetime start, and that is often a very potent angle in maiden races. She finished ahead of Spa maiden graduate Sabooh in career debut at Belmont, and shows a quick half-mile workout on August 18.
A LITTLE HUMOR is a half to a juvenile debut winner by strong first-out sire Distorted Humor, and Pat Biancone is excellent with newcomers. She’ll have to show speed from the demanding inside post. FREAKSTEIN figures to take lots of play based on connections and 700K price tag, and she worked a sizzling 9.80 prior to the March auction. May not offer much value. PSYCHO D J goes out for red-hot barn, is bred both sides for speed, and shows a couple of bullet workouts. Deserves extra attention if she is bet hard early

Selections:
1. Shop Glack
2. Magger Bags
3. Lunar Beach

The play: Shop Glack to win at 7-2 odds or more

Analysis:
Tom Albertani and Javier Castellano teamed up for Katnik’s debut victory during the Belmont Spring Meet, and WINDY STREET shows steady workouts for her career debut. She doesn’t have to be the next Ruffian to contend in this weak statebred maiden claimer, and the Bertrando on the bottom of her pedigree should add some speed.
CRUISEWEAR is a half-sister to the crack sprinter Ruby Rubles, and her sire is a promising young son of Storm Cat. She attracts Prado, and the August 4 workout doesn’t look too bad. ASHIKI looks like a private purchase for Winning Move Stable and Gary Contessa, and she raced evenly while well-bet at Lone Star. Don’t know what she was facing that day (of the four runners to race out of that heat, none have won), but she seems like a nice fit against fellow statebreds.
CAPE COD ESCAPE is bred both sides for speed, and should offer value for low-profile connections. FARRI H. didn’t have an easy trip in career debut, and should benefit from that experience. Her sire has gotten off to a hot start with New York-bred runners.

Analysis:
THROBBIN’ HEART goes out for top debut barn, and shows a sharp gate workout on August 11. The daughter of speedy stallion Smoke Glacken gets plenty of class from her Storm Cat mare.
ELLIE’S BUDDHA raced wide over an inside, speed-favoring track when dropped for a tag on August 3. She will likely face stronger pace pressure in this tougher field, but adds Lasix for excellent 2-year-old barn. Bob Baffert’s babies have been nothing but live at Saratoga, and INDIAN BLESSING should give a good account of herself. The homebred is bred for speed, and shows quick works over the Del Mar polytrack.
CONSTANCE faltered behind a pair of sharp runners in career debut, and should show speed for the Pletcher-Velazquez duo. LIFE IS SWEET has a beautiful pedigree and top connections in her corner, but must deal with tough outside post.

Selections:
1. Throbbin’ Heart
2. Ellie’s Buddha
3. Indian Blessing

The Play: Throbbin’ Heart to win at 7-2 odds or more

Analysis:
MESA GIRL's female family is all turf, and Todd Pletcher is overdue to reach the winner’s circle with a first-time starter. The works looks solid, and the daughter of promising first-crop sire Sky Mesa sold for six figures last year.
HEAVEN’S STAR goes out for barn that put over $38 juvenile debut turf runner Shelterfromastorm here in 2005. She catches a field without much form. SOUNDS TACKY hasn’t done much in career, but did show improved speed last time out, and now turns back in distance.
LA RANSOM raced greenly on dirt, but looms a dangerous pace threat, and shows a bullet on the green. BAR CITY’s trainer does very well with these kind of runners, and City Zip is an excellent turf sire. NICELY PUT figures to put pace heat on early, but she has lost ground in the stretch of each of her three lifetime starts

Selections (Turf Only):
