Best Bet: ART FOR ARTS SAKE (8th)

Spot Play: NASSAU COUNTY (11th)


Race 1

(2) HIGHLAND ROCKSTAR is 1 for 25 this year but the good news is she moves down in class and gets post relief; poised to bounce back to winning form. (7) LITTLE MERMAID N Quite fast pacing mare got the job done last out down the road; big threat again despite the tough draw. (3) SOOKIE raced well in her last try; could have a say with these.

Race 2

(2) BIG BAD BOSSMAN has scored in his last two trips to the post; stays in same level and goes for sharp trainer; another huge effort in on the horizon. (4) TREND SPOTTER gelding flashed good speed in his latest; could contend with a favorable trip. (3) SODYS MOONSHINE might have been used up in the early stages last time out but that was against better stock; beware.

Race 3

(4) BAD GIRL VEGAS gets a cozy slot to work with; with a fine-timed drive from Dube, she can take this group to task for all the cash. (1) MACH THIS WAY Sharp in victory at Harrington last time around; moves to the rail so she must be considered. (7) NATY just missed the score by only a neck last week; exotics factor.

Race 4

(4) PITA put in three sharp efforts in a row so you have to think she is fit and ready to boss these. (3) DEREK DELIGHT took the pocket route home to a easy victory last out; big threat again. (1) MY CAROLINE Very consistent mare has hit the board in her last six tries; not out of this from the pole position.

Race 5

(6) JUST SAYIN raced evenly last time out and showed good speed; if she can revert to her September 10th trip where she rallied strongly for the placing, it could be game over for the rest; we shall see. (1) GET THE LOOK gets the best of the draw and has every right to contend with this group. (2) MADDIE D moves back to the 2-hole where she had some early zip two starts ago; beware.

Race 6

(1) ROCKIN JIMMY Gelding put in a late rally to miss the score by a length and three quarters; now he moves to the fence and he could take this with a favorable trip. (8) WORLD PEACE Very sharp in his last three starts; post hurts but he is very capable. (3) UPFRONT LORNE Closing bid in his last two starts makes him a serious player with these; watch out.

Race 7

(3) MAGIC MANNY was up against it from the 8-hole last week; returns inside with speed to boot; he has every right to take this group down the road. (5) OK GALAHAD charged home down the lane to get the job done recently; should be right square in the mix. (4) HALL OF TERROR Even finish last out; has been picking up checks so he must be considered in the exotics.

Race 8

(2) ART FOR ARTS SAKE has good tactical speed; last out he was very wide and that might have hurt his chances; good to see Brennan with the assignment; ready to mow these down at his best. (6) COOL LIKE THAT had nothing in his latest so he now drops a notch in class; could have a say. (4) BLADE SEELSTER showed good speed in his previous outing; could make some noise in deep stretch.

Race 9

(1) GODDESSS ROSA Pacing miss moves to the rail slot and she appears to have the speed over this group and Brennan had other options; with a return to her September 17th trip, the rest might have to settle for place money. (8) DENYITTOTHEEND She seems to tire in the stretch drive but based on her solid form, she's still a big threat in here. (2) NIPPY W HANOVER moves down in class and draws a better post; watch out.

Race 10

Will try (7) NEFERTITI BLUECHIP to put it all together against these; 4-year-old miss has back class and missed the victory two trips ago by only a head. (4) VILLAGE JESSICA Pocono invader got the job done via the pocket last time around; main danger. (1) VICTORIA MAY N Must be considered in the exotics  from the fence.

Race 11

(3) NASSAU COUNTY Gelding receives a perfect slot to get back into the winner's circle; figures to rate and score with Brennan at the controls. (2) ALWAYS A DIAMOND flashed good speed in his last try; has every right to move forward; maybe. (5) ROETHBLISSBERGER Leaves the 8-hole and is on the dropdown; took a 40k claimer on September 4th; clearly not ouf of this.

Race 12

(2) ELM GROVE INARUSH Pacing mare has put in three excellent tries in a row; was third best against a little tougher last out so he appears to be ready to get back into the swing of things. (1) CANACO STAR has hit the board in her last three starts; retains the rail slot and she figures to be a major player. (8) GRACE SEELSTER has been in the exacta in her last four trips to the post; big threat despite the tough post.
