Analysis:
Lots of jockey musical chairs makes this an interesting maiden heat. IN SPEIGHT OF IT is by Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Speightstown out of a full sister to the fleet Yes It's True, has a pretty good break from the gate, and the addition of blinkers may enhance his early speed. He tried to rally over a speed-favoring surface last time out, but may be more forwardly-placed in this spot.
JUST A COINCIDENCE scratched out of a tough maiden heat on Woodward Day to await this spot. He showed good speed in his debut, but was also a bit green. He's the horse to beat for Nick Zito.
LUV GOV adds blinkers, and may attempt to press the pace for Wayne Lukas.
THEY'RE LATE didn't attract much mutuel attention, and didn't do much in his debut. Perhaps this son of Mineshaft wants more ground. MR. JOLSON shows bullet works at Suffolk, but these may be too tough. TUFAO broke poorly, and was eventually eased in his debut. Bill Mott wins second-out, adds blinkers to the mix, and Edgar Prado takes the mount. DUCANE is a full brother to the swift La Traviata, and shows an intriguing work line for Pletcher. John Velazquez opts for Just a Coincidence, however. BIG FLIRT also scratched from Saturday's maiden, and Wesley Ward excels first-out. MAJHOOD cost $600,000 at auction, and no barn has been hotter first-out at this meet than Kiaran McLaughlin. He may want more distance, though, and Alan Garcia lands on the Pletcher runner.

Selections:
1. In Speight of It
2. Just a Coincidence
3. Luv Gov

The Play:
In Speight of It to Win and Place at 5-1 or more

Analysis:
DEBBIE H gave a nice effort in her career debut on dirt, and figures to be up close to the early fracions under Robby Albarado. The $85,000 yearling from the family of Breeders' Cup Classic hero Concern should take to the lawn.
BAMBOLINA raced wide in her career debut on turf, and should be able to save ground here after breaking from the inside post.
SCINTILLATION did not have an easy trip on grass as she stumbled badly coming out of the gate. She earned a solid Beyer on the lawn, and wouldn't be a surprise with better racing luck.
AMERICAS DREAMING just missed in career debut in Europe, and has been searching for a spot. The new import attracts Edgar Prado, and should be rallying late. O SABINA sold very well earlier this year, is bred for speed, and shows steady workouts. CLASSOFSIXTYTHREE adds Lasix, but must improve drastically from dull debut at 62-1. THERE ARE RAINBOWS and RIVER FANCY comprise the Pletcher entry. The former shows a bullet work on grass while River Fancy gets the services of John Velazquez. THEATRICAL MADAM is by a wonderful turf sire, but Bill Mott has struggled first-out this year. IT'S MY DAY may need a start. GOT THAT MONEY again draws widest.

Selections:
1. Debbie H
2. Bambolina
3. Scintillation

The Play:
Debbie H to Win and Place at 4-1 or greater

Analysis:
GOLD INDY shows some interesting workouts for her debut, and the $500,000 yearling boasts the ultra-successful A.P. Indy - Mr. Prospector cross. Todd Pletcher and John Velazquez are one of the best debut teams around.
AMANWELLA showed the way over a deep and tiring rail in her first start over dirt only to be overhauled late by a promising stretch runner. She should be up and on the pace once again, and looms the filly to beat.
PEARL OF VALOR ran into next-out stakes-winner Jardin when attempting to overcame a speed bias in career debut at Churchill, then didn't break well as the beaten favorite at the Spa. She can improve.
CRITICAL made up some late ground in debut at Monmouth, and goes out for high-percentage connections. SONG OF CHARM rallied in her debut at Churchill Downs, and David Carroll is a very underrated trainer. Song of Charm is a half-sister to sprint champion Artax, and should offer some value. TASHA'S STAR was a vet scratch on August 10, and must overcome the rail. NATIONAL GALLERY may want more ground. SWEET ARIETTE didn't do much in the slop, and must pick it up. ME LOVE shows several bullet works at Laurel for high-percentage Mid-Atlantic barn. CREMA D'ORO's works fail impress. ZAPHYRA may want distance and turf. DEVOTEE has lots of stamina on the bottom of pedigree. BLUEGRASS PRINCESS goes out for top barn, but Kiaran McLaughlin's go-to rider, Alan Garcia, ends up on Sweet Ariette.

1. Gold Indy

Analysis:
MINE ALL MINE drew away impressively when asked for her best in the upper stretch of her Spa debut. She steps up in class for Wesley Ward, but has excellent early speed, and should be a factor from the opening bell.
MANI BHAVAN has dominated her opponents in both lifetime starts, but draws outside the other speeds here, and may have to run a bit harder in the early quarter of a mile. She's the one to beat, but may be overbet.
CASANOVA MOVE responded positively to the addition of Lasix as she drew off to win by the length of the stretch. Not sure if she's as quick as the top two selections, however.
JARDIN stalked and pounced her way to victory in the Schuylerville, and would benefit from a quick pace. GIRLFRIENDONTHESIDE didn't have the easiest of trips in the Schuylerville, but needs a Beyer boost to contend for top honors. COLLEGIATE overcame a hot pace battle to win her debut despite racing a bit greenly, then didn't have a great trip in the Schuylerville. She wouldn't be a major surprise. WINNING BREW looks overmatched. AUGUST RUSH went gate-to-wire on turf in her debut, but this is a different ballgame.

Selections:
1. Mine All Mine
2. Mani Bhavan
3. Casanova Move

The Play
Mine All Mine to Win at 2-1 or more
