Race 2

(1) SPECIAL KIM faced open foes upstate recently. Should be ready to best these from the fence. (6) ALWAYS LOVE ME posted a nice qualifier at Saratoga; main danger. (2) PASSION R VIRGINIE flashed some speed last time around; not out of this.

Race 3

Will go with Indiana invader (3) BREWSKI to put her best foot forward on the half-mile oval. (2) CASE SOLVED has fine speed and should be right in the thick of it. (6) CHEYENNE MIRIAM leaves the 8-hole and that might help her cause.

Race 4

(5) DENYITTOTHEEND got the job done down the road last out. Pacing miss is in sharp form, so the four-peat is not out of the question. (2) GET THE LOOK was second best in her latest; threat. (1) QUICKSILVERCANDY A is a contender from the rail slot.

Race 5

(5) MY SPRING FLING has hit the board in her last three outings. She clearly has every right to boss these gals. (3) FIRSTCLASSFLIGHT can get involved with the right trip. (1) BROOKLYNS BEST closed strongly to grab her second straight score.

Race 6

(1) ONE WARRAWEE is a sharp pacing gelding that moves to the rail slot and he can top these down the road. (2) LIGHTNING STRIKE just got up last out for win honors. (3) CONNERY BLUE CHIP gets post relief; watch out.

Race 7

(3) BLACK MAGIC EYES put in a mild bid in her last try. Pacing mare should fare well from the 3-hole and with some luck, can get the job done. (2) HER OWN LAND was caught at the wire last time out and had to settle for the placing. (5) SPREESTER could land a share of the purse.

Race 8

(2) ALITTLEEASTERMAGIC posted an even finish in her last start. With the right trip, this gal can make tonight a winning one. (1) CLASSY LANE ROSE did not race badly in her most recent outing; main danger. (3) MIKELEH could make some noise down the lane.

Race 9

(6) FREETIME might have been used up in the early stages last out. She fits with these and good to see Brennan at the controls; threat at her best. (1) FANTICIPATION was nailed for the score recently; don't overlook. (5) KAITLYN RAE was sharp in her previous start; beware.

Race 10

With try (8) GAVINS DESIGNER to put it all together given the golden trip. (3) ROADWAY is knocking at the door; quite dangerous. (1) SECRETSOFTHEKNIGHT should do much better from the fence.

Race 11

(3) GROUNDED raced evenly in her last try. 5-year-old mare can get back into the winning grove with Brennan in the bike. (1) BABY REMIND ME retains the rail slot and was a game second last time out. (4) MY TALLIA IDEAL has hit the board in her last four trips to the post.

Race 12

(7) UPFRONTWHOSURLADY seems to be ready to break down the door. The post hurts but she very capable of getting the job done. (8) GRACE SEELSTER has wheeled off two straight victories; main threat. (3) BITTERSWEET DREAMS could be right in the mix.

Does it bother anyone that in the 10th race that Jason Bartlett with the 6/5 favorite Roadway sits 4th for the first half while Secretsoftheknight, the 1, is allowed to stroll to the half in :58:1, including a :30 second quarter??? Then comes the obligatory third quarter rush that goes no where. Can anyone seriously gamble on these races? Has Bartlett ever heard of a quarter move to take the lead in :57? Pat LaChance eventually wins the race after sleeping on the rail for 7/8ths of a mile with Urbana Bayama, the 2 and wakes up in the stretch. Disgraceful.
