Race 1

(4) BIG PACKAGE was claimed Monday night by Moreau who jams him back in here 5 days later. He did well with him earlier in the meet; top call in the opener. (6) BLUSH AND CRUSH moved aggressively to the front in the third 1/4 then lasted. She has improved greatly the past month. (7) LATOKA takes a big drop into a class where he fits.

Race 2

(1) ST LADS PENNY LANE stepped up two levels last time and closed a huge gap late. She hasn't raced this well since the start of her career; take seriously. (6) TRUE REFLECTION drops back to a level where she is usually competitive. Look for her late. (4) MISTRESSTOTHESTARS looked home and tired very late to get nailed. She should be even tighter off that mile.

Race 3

(1) GREYSTONE LADYLIKE left hard for position, was forced to drive to the front was overtaken on the backside and finished gamely. She figures to get an easier trip here from the rail. (2) MARQUISE DE SARAH closed rapidly for the second week straight but was too far back. Expect a more aggressive drive this time. (5) PUTMEINTOGO made two moves to the top and continued on gamely to upset last week. She should be tough again.

Race 4

(6) YOUR MY SECRET seems to have a gear right now that the others in this class simply can't match. Top call and Best Bet. (7) CALL ME MAYBE was a ridiculous gap behind the field last time from the 10-hole. She should be able to beat a couple off the gate here and close for a piece. (3) GRACIES PARADE moves into Zeron's barn and he does very well with limited stock; beware.

Race 5

(6) TAROT has been on an incredible roll since switching barns. These are tougher, but he should be good for his 5th straight. (4) MICHAELS TURN went a big trip to stay undefeated last out; the top one looks faster at this point but we likely haven't seen this guy's best yet. (3) DOMEDOMEDOME parlayed some good cover into a win vs. lesser but these are much tougher.

Race 6

(3) ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE takes a big drop and should be able to handle this group. (1) BET YA paced to a dominant win in this class last week and must be respected. (2) A FILLY AFFAIR drops out of the same race as the choice and also fits much better here.

Race 7

(3) HER NAME IS LOLA was a dominant winner of the Lifetime Dream Final and is clearly at the top of her game now; top call. (2) BAGS FOR ALL was much better last week returning to a 7-day rotation and has been consistent all winter. She also races equally effective on top or stalking the pace. (8) SEAWIND PASCALE provided cover for the choice and was overtaken in the stretch. She likely reverts to blasting early and trying to take these all the way; could do.

Race 8

(6) STUARTS DYNASTY put up some big fractions and won comfortably in a lifetime-best effort. Call to repeat for a hot barn. (7) I AM SPECIAL was a predictable winner in her debut for Moreau. She can threaten here, too. (2) TWIGGYS TWICK made a nice recovery after an early miscue when claimed. She may need a bit easier company, though.

Race 9

(6) WILDCAT HANNA closed a lot of ground in the second 1/2 of her 2015 debut and now gets to drop in to face easier. Top call, but likely at a short price. (2) WINDSONG JACOBA came from farther back and passed the choice late. She is the obvious danger. (3) JENNA CASIMIR returns from a layoff for Puddy and looks ready for a speed try.

Race 10

(1) ARTISTIC MADISON has been a win machine this winter and is tough to go against from the rail in this class. (6) MYSTIQUE BEACH BUM was very live last week but too far back of a winner that grabbed a big lead. She should be heard from in here. (4) WILDCAT MAGIC should be able to work out a trip here from a good post to hit the tri. (3) AN ANGEL SHES NOT moves up but raced big from an outer post last time when losing to a dominant winner that would threaten all of these; for a share. (5) DOUBLE JOY is a must-have on exotic tickets as she is always around the money
