Race 1

(6) CANT STOP has been knocking on the door in three of her four career starts and is due to earn her first lifetime win. (9) WOODMERE TRULYBLUE has a solid record this season and will debut for new trainer Corey Johnson. (10) APPLE PIE ANGEL has posted back-to-back wins for trainer/owner Raymond Larose. The daughter of American Ideal makes her way onto this circuit in her tenth career start.

Race 2

(7) BRITISH STEEL has posted back-to-back dominant wins and looks like the horse to beat again this week. (10) CASHONTHEROCS is the newest addition into the Tony O’Sullivan barn following a private purchase and will carry a four-race win streak coming into tonight’s contest. (2) FASHION GODDESS has been getting overlooked as of late, but I doubt that will be the case in this field.

Race 3

(6) AMERICAN IN PARIS will be the favorite in this dash when the gates unfold; very logical. (3) NAT A VIRGIN draws inside again this week for trainer Dustin Jones and the pacing miss has yet to miss the board with Jody Jamieson aboard. (2) BULLET POINT has over $500K worth of back class and draws inside for trainer/co-owner Blake Macintosh.

Race 4

(3) MAJESTE DUHARAS continues to offer a low price at post time, but was a winner last week in this class. (5) KABU was a recent winner at Hoosier Park and will now move into the Tony O’Sullivan barn. (1) MOONLIGHT ESPOIR draws the rail and has been a prime threat in this class in each of his last four starts.

Race 5

(1) BADLANDS LOVE draws the rail this week for trainer Corey Johnson and driver Jonathan Drury. (6) MAJOR HANGOVER has been knocking on the door as of late and always seems to be in the hunt turning for home. (8) BIG TREAT has been much better as of late for trainer/owner Junior West. The Mister Big miss will get the services again of Mike Saftic.

Race 6

(8) WEST COAST ROCKER has been a top threat since dropping into this class two starts back. (10) USEFUL HANOVER will need to overcome post 10, but shows tactical gate speed and as hit the board in three of his last four starts. (7) BETTER ART has a solid record this season coming into tonight’s contest and may offer a nice price as the four-year-old jumps in class and onto this circuit.

Race 7

(5) BEE FULLOF STEINAM drops down in class and gets driver James MacDonald in the bike this week. (10) RUB N TUG will need to overcome post 10, but utilized her gate speed last week from a post seven start to make her way to the front. (4) MISS MACHQUEEN certainly has the speed and drops down in class, which should benefit her nicely.

Race 8

(7) POCKET TRIP comes from a top trainer in Kelly Goodwin and the gelding has been a lead candidate in this class for many weeks. (8) DONTCHEATONMENOW debuted for the trainer Corey Johnson last week and the result was a winning effort. (6) EXEMPLAR was a winner in this class three starts back, but tends to race very inconsistently for trainer/driver Per Henriksen.

Race 9

(2) RUBIS PRESCOTT has many things to like about her coming into tonight’s contest. (8) WILDCAT HANNA has hit the board in each of her last two starts and just missed last week in this class. (3) RADAR CONTACT is a better mare than she’s been showing in my opinion. She draws nicely this week after a pair of outside post positions and gets Jack Moiseyev back aboard

Race 10

(5) BRUSHSTROKES was an impressive winner last week in this class and now she goes in for a $50K price tag to remain in the same class. (2) WILDCAT BEAUTY likely will offer a price when the gate unfolds. She draws inside and is fresh off a second-place finish last week in this class. (8) BET YA is a price horse in this dash as the sophomore will face older rivals for trainer Frank Colville.

Race 11

(8) SWINGING CAMI is long overdue for her first win of the season and the public thought she would get it last week while sent off as the heavy favorite. (4) CATALEA SEELSTER finished off her mile very strong in her latest and the pacing miss comes from the Tony Montini barn. (2) VAL DI NOTO finally draws inside after back-to-back 10-holes for trainer Gord Remmen.
