Race 1 

(3) K T BIRD makes her sophomore debut off a qualifier that saw her kick home nicely.  (2) PL FAIRLADY is also making her first start of the year off an exceptional qualifier where she won easily.  (7) TORINO SEELSTER makes his career debut in a field full of question marks; threat.

Race 2 

(4) BELLE BOYD has come back razor sharp and looks to have more in the tank; short price.  (3) WILDCAT HANNA was a game second to the top choice last out after doing all the work.  (6) MARQUISE DE SARAH always puts in a good effort and with the right trip could upset at a price. 

Race 3 

(1) SILLY DREAMS made a miscue last out after putting in a stellar effort prior.  The mare showed a big-time kick the start before and just needs to stay trotting.  (7) BETTY OOP romped home in her qualifier off the layoff and looks to have corrected a few issues; big chance. (10) MUSCLE GEM is saddled with a very tough post but was a well-rated winner in his career debut and could be sitting on a huge effort.

Race 4 

(1) EYEMAJET needed her last start and has much more talent than her lines show.   (8) SUPER SOPH is undefeated in ten career starts but takes a huge jump up in class and will need more.  (4) CAMS MACHARENA has a great pedigree and makes her second start back off a layoff; improving.

Race 5 

(2) STRAWBERY WINE put in a huge effort last out and looks to be facing a softer field.  (3) SWEEPING VICTORY is a lightly raced stallion that is just now figuring out how to race and has shown improvement with every start.  (7) TYMAL TEXTME put up a huge three-quarters last time and now gets a big driver change. 

Race 6 

(7) RUBIS PRESCOTT can fly off the gate and looks to be rapidly improving with each start.  (9) AIR MILES HANOVER probably has the best pedigree in the race but has yet to put it all together and will need to find a way into the race early.  (5) LARK SEELSTER has came charging hard late in all of her starts and could use a hot pace up front to close into. 

Race 7 

(1) MACH AWAY just missed last out to a game winner, draws the rail and looks to be in a perfect spot to get a victory.  (2) DELICATE TOUCH is a lightly raced 3-year-old that has just been racing evenly, but also gets a good post against an inexperienced field.  (4) PRETTYNDANGEROUS put in a decent qualifier and should show significant improvement off of that. 

Race 8 

(4) U BETTOR WATCH OUT looks to finally be back in racing shape after a game effort in his last start.  Nine-year-old will offer a big price and should be forwardly placed.  (3) SHIPS XPECTANCY put in a big effort first over last out just tiring a bit late. A repeat of that effort gets the job done.  (2) ST LADS DUDE was a game winner last out for this top trainer but does take a bump up in class and will probably be a heavy favorite; use caution.

Race 9 

(8) DESIGNER GENES is a well-bred trotting mare that never got into the mile last out. She has shown a good burst of speed and is versatile in a wide open field.  (7) SEE R CHIN WIN was used hard last out from a tough spot and looks to be facing a softer field; fires early.  (3) ADREAMCOMESTRUE AS could be over bet as her last line sticks out and she was in a perfect spot picking up the pieces; command a price.

Race 10 

(8) FRESH HERB smoked through three quarters of a mile last out before tiring.  Six-year-old has been sharp and will need to fire for position early on.  (9) HIGHLAND HELLION was a game winner last out for this top trainer; fires early.  (6) ELITE makes his first start for a trainer who does really well in this scenario and may offer some value. 

Race 11 

(9) KEEP IT FAIR has won two straight and now bumps up in class, but could be up to the task in a race with few contenders.  (2) NOARTOGRAPHSPLEASE just missed last out and has been hitting the board consistently; vulnerable late.  (3) FLYUSTOTHEMOON has now won three straight starts and actually fits better on the big track; threat.
