MEET STATS: 205 - 588 / $1077.40

BEST BETS: 35 - 48 / $113.30


Best Bet: BEAUTIFUL LADY (7th)


Race 1

(6) RED CARPET DUDE had been racing well prior to that hiccup last start. This is a highly questionable field he meets tonight and he's worth a look here. (8)  KEEPING OPTIMISTIC ships down from Canada and he has a decent record this year. (4) VODKA IS TERROR returns locally and he has some talent but he's a bit erratic.

Race 2

(5) TWO SMART arrives for good trotting connections and Morrill, Jr. is always live when allowed to drive here. (4) EMILIANA picks up Brennan off a good-looking victory at Goshen. (3) GINNY AND TONIC has good speed and a good speed driver in Stalbaum.

Race 3

(5) BO'S SO HOT has raced well in all recent efforts and young driver Siegelman has proven he's capable when he's got the horsepower. (1) GREAT AMERICAN debuts for new connections and he draws best with Sears driving. (4) RICKY BLUE EYES has been going those fake fast times at Pocono but he did hit the board in his last two.

Race 4

(8) ROCKNROLL MEG was nipped on the wire last out in a tough beat; another alert getaway puts her in the mix. (1) NASTY SWEETNESS ships in, draws best and picks up Brennan. (5) ROCKLINDAROCK appears fast enough to compete with these.

Race 5

(4) MARKET RALLY has taken her last two NYSS tests in impressive fashion; tough to look past. (3) GLOWNGOLD stopped on the front end last out at Tioga; prior efforts were good. (2) WINNING PERSUIT can capture a share from this spot.

Race 6

(1) ANNIES LIST bounced back from a break over the half at Buffalo with a solid effort at Tioga; if Buter can nurse her around that tight first turn she's got a big chance. (2) AVALICIOUS also broke when last on a half mile, other than that she's been hard to fault. (5) CREDIAMA captured the lucrative Empire Breeders Classic last month but one has to wonder if she loses something with the trainer in the bike.

Race 7

(2) BEAUTIFUL LADY broke leaving last out and recovered okay; a repeat of that effort two back would be good enough to take this. (6) CAM FUNNY beat these two back but threw in a dud last out chasing a fast mile. (8) JANINNE looks for four straight but the eight hole makes it tough.

Race 8

(3) AMERICAN VENTURE has faltered badly since arriving from Western Canada but I'm convinced the ability is there; one more chance. (1) MONTANA PABLO A gets post relief and is the one to beat. (4) DR C'S Z TAM should be a closing threat.

Race 9

(1) CAROLINE STREET gets Stratton in the bike tonight for trainer Schnittker and that's been a combo that's clicked on more than one occasion. (5) DO YOU BELIEVE hung in the late stages in her local debut but it was a decent effort. (3) SOUTH JERSEY BOY could hold for a share over the rest of these.

Race 10

(3) HOW BOUT CASH is a stablemate of Hambo winner Royalty For Life. This filly has hit the ticket in her last six. (4) DREAMSTEELER is 13 for 14 lifetime, but her lone defeat was a break over this track. (1) SKI TO THE MAX is an obvious threat from this spot if she behaves herself.

Race 11

(7) WHEELAWAY had all sorts of traffic issues last out; smooth sailing and a favorable trip could spell upset for this gelding. (5) SPORTS SINNER and (6) DISARREI also came out of the same race as the top choice which was a strange race; either one can take this.

Race 12

(2) SEAFOOD ANNIE kicked home nicely last week from a tough post; mare finally lands inside and it may be her turn to win. (3) FANTICIPATION is clearly the one to beat based on last week's blowout effort. (5) R MARIE HANOVER is back at the right level and she does have some early speed.
