Best Bet: KATHERINE B (2nd)

Race 1

(1) OAKLEA VULCAN gets the rail and is fresh off a win. He comes from a high percentage trainer and is capable of showing even more speed. (5) P L GNAW closed very well to finish second last week and may provide a price. (10) QUIET SNOW will have to overcome post 10, but comes out of the Lalonde barn and has the speed; healthy price.

Race 2

(5) KATHERINE B moves into the Moreau barn and that's the main reason for my selection. (8) CHEAP N EASY moves into the Puddy barn, drops in class and has a terrific record this season. (6) LUCKY TARYN has been racing her best in recent starts and is very capable once again. She has the gate speed and was an open-length winner in her latest.

Race 3

(9) WHIPLASH won last week in this class and has a terrific record this season in his six starts. He remains at the same class and has gate speed. (2) PLATO was second last week, draws inside and comes out of Menary's barn. (5) ZORGWIJK JOCK moves back onto this circuit from Grand River and is very capable. His record speaks for itself and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 4

(2) SHOCK N ROCK gets much needed post relief and has been closing very well in this class. He draws inside and is due to break his maiden. (4) SIR MACHALOT has a good final quarter in him and draws well. He has the speed for this level and may offer a fair price. (1) FOUR STACES comes out of the Coleman barn, which can't be overlooked. He gets the rail and should improve off last week's career debut.

Race 5

(6) ROCKYS FIRST has terrific gate speed and that will likely get utilized. He has a good record this season and won in this class recently. (4) BURNIN MONEY hasn't been in top form for many weeks, but once again drops in class. He's at a level and should be very competitive and capable. (3) COOL GUY is fresh off an open length score in his latest and moves up in class. He draws well and should get another aggressive steer from Davis, Jr.

Race 6

(8) SPECIAL JACKPOT is in the Harrisburg Mixed Sale this Saturday and comes out of the Coleman barn. He has gate speed and should be properly placed off the start. (5) MIND ME BOCKLE raced well in his career debut considering he had an outside post. He gets post relief in here and should be closer to the pace. (2) DOCS SMOKIN draws inside comes out of the Autumn Series. McNair trainee seems likely to provide a price.

Race 7

(9) BUGGER MAX moves into the Auciello barn and has a good record this season. He's versatile and should fair out well in this class. (5) TEX has raced well at this level and is very versatile. He has the speed, but needs a trip in this light field. (1) KINMUNDYS STRYKER draws the rail and comes out of Shepherd's barn. He's hit the board in two of his last three starts.

Race 8

(8) HOBOKEN HANOVER also comes out of the Shepherd barn and won in this class last week. He's won two of his last three since the claim. (2) DOCS HOSS has proven to be very competitive in this field. He has a good record this season and is classified accordingly. (6) WESTERN SENATOR has hit the board in two of his last three starts and comes out of the Fellows barn. He remains at the same class and draws better.

Race 9

(1) STONEBRIDGE ADORE hasn't missed the board in seven career starts along with five wins. She won in this class last week and gets the rail. (8) COUNTRY DELIGHT has missed the board once from four career starts and comes out of the Gillis barn. Jamieson is listed to drive and this one is likely to offer a low price. (7) CRUEL GIRL has missed the board once from 11 starts this season and is very versatile. She'll offer a low price and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 10

(6) SHADY B SKIPALONG is overdue for a win at this level. She has shown flashes of quick speed and draws well. (5) SENTIMENTAL LADY got tortured last week as she left the gate and finished second the week prior. With a correct trip, she should be very effective. (1) SUCKITUPBUTTERCUP gets the rail and is very lightly raced. She'll provide a high price in this very wide open field.

Race 11

(5) WINDSONG GEANT comes out of the Preferred level and into this class. He's a classy veteran and was victorious the last time he was in this class. (1) SMARTY PANTS draws inside, comes out of Moreau's barn and has hit the board in three of his last four starts. (2) TAKE MY PICTURE draws the two-hole and comes out of the Preferred class. He has a lot of back class and won't offer much of a price.

Race 12

(8) AKOYA comes out of the Johnson barn and has a high win percentage. He gets Waples in the bike and is a top candidate. (9) WHITE SPORTSCOAT has a terrific record this season and has been knocking on the door in this class. (6) SHARK FANTASY has posted a pair of encouraging qualifiers and is capable of dropping more time. He may need a start, but should provide a healthy price.
