Spot Play: OUR ELS DREAM N (3rd)


Race 1

(1) AUTOMATIC SLIMS is clearly the speed of the speed and has the rail to boot; his race to lose. (3) MONTREAL PHIL was uncovered at the 3/4 pole and held on outside for show money last out. (6) OUTA MY HEAD is back at Yonkers where on April 28th the gelding got the job done.

Race 2

(4) MUSTANG MACH N close to victory last out missing by only a neck. Pacing gelding is heading in the right direction and has every right to be the boss over these. (2) SLY RULER led most of the way but tired in deep stretch to hold the show spot last time out. (1) WHATSITTOYOUGRANT makes his return to Yonkers and the rail should put him right in the mix.

Race 3

(7) OUR ELS DREAM N Speedy mare fits well in here and with a clean trip she can make tonight a winning one. (1) GROUNDED has wheeled off two straight victories and now she draws the rail; threat again. (4) JUNGLE GENIE N is knocking at the door based on her last two tries.

Race 4

(1) EVERY INTENTION gets serious post relief and this gelding was a solid winner here on May 13th from the rail; ready for action. (7) ROSE RUN QUEST was very game in his last two starts at Saratoga; major player. (5) GIVEN UP TERROR could contend with these if he is given a favorable trip.

Race 5

(5) AL RAZA N showed signs of life and rallied strongly for third money in her most recent outing. Figures to get a hot pace and might blow by them all in deep stretch. (7) KRISPY APPLE scored her third victory of the year at Philly last time around; post hurts but she is very capable. (6) MACH IT A PAR was late on the scene to nail down the victory last time out.

Race 6

(4) JONSIE JONES makes her return to the Hilltop where she has done her best running. Has good speed and could take these to task for all the cash. (1) REGIL ELEKTRA should fare much better from the rail and this mare does know how to get the job done; we shall see. (2) KNOW IT ALL gets class relief and that should help her cause.

Race 7

(1) LYONS SHADOW did not have the best of trips last out where she was on the rim most of the way. Now she moves to the fence where she was a sharp winner three starts ago. (4) FOR THE LADIES N moves down in class and gets a cozy post; main danger. (3) TIPITINA Her last two tries were quite good and clearly is not out of this.

Race 8

(6) PANPERO FIRPO was second best at Vernon's miracle mile series last time out. 5-year-old figures in this event and good to see Bartlett with the assignment; gets the call. (2) AMERICAN VENTURE was on the engine until the top of the stretch but tired badly in his last try; could have a say in the outcome. (4) STATION THREEOHSIX has hit the board in his last five trips and should make some serious noise in here.

Race 9

(4) GALLANT SEELSTER did not fire in the open event at Scioto last time out but the good news is he is back at his stomping grounds; the one to fear. (2) HERE WE GO AGAIN might find these to his liking and his qualifier at the Meadowlands two starts back was quite good. (1) ROGER MACH EM has done well at Yonkers and should make some noise from the fence.

Race 10

(2) FAMEOUS WESTERN might have moved too soon when he was geared up at the 1/2 mile pole and had nothing left in the stretch drive lasting for third at Pocono. Now he moves to the 2-hole, drops in class and Brennan is at the controls; threat at his best. (1) ARQUE HANOVER should fit well from the fence and Bartlett stays; the main danger. (6) FIRST CLASS HORSE almost got the job done missing the score by only a neck; watch out.

Race 11

(6) MIDNIGHT DYLAN N has tactical speed and the gelding has hit the board 7 of 13 starts this year. If Brennan receives the favorable trip the rest will have to settle for place money. (5) FASHION DELIGHT was sent by Bartlett down the road last time out for all the glory; dangerous again. (1) B JS BEQUIA now gets the rail and was sharp two starts back losing the victory by a nose; don't overlook.
