(1) NASSAU COUNTY put in two sharp tries. Big threat from the rail slot. (7) IM BLUE TOO rallied strongly recently to nail down the placing.

Race 7

(2) SKY IS THE LIMIT gets a cozy post to work with. With a golden trip, this 5-year-old can make tonight a winning one. (8) CLASSIESISTAR N Sharp for the victory in his U.S, debut; threat again. (1) BY A TIME should do much better from the fence.

Race 8

Race 10

(7) HANDSOFFMYCUPCAKE is seeking her first score of the year. Pacing mare is very capable of getting the job done if she is given a golden trip. (6) LETS GO HIGHER faced Open foes upstate last out; Big player. (1) CLASSY LANE ROSE should get involved from the rail slot.

Race 11

(4) ROCK N LOAD Based on her last three trips to the post, she is clearly knocking at the door. Ready for action. (7) KEYSTONE WANDA has tactical speed. Should be right in the mix. (1) STRINGS was in over her head last out; beware with strong connections.
