Race 2

(2) VIDA DE VIE made a bad break in her latest at Pocono. Trotting miss fits well in here and the two slot can help her cause. (7) CASHCO could make some noise with a better trip. (5) TSMLIL ORPHAN ANDY put in a mild rally in his recent outing.

Race 3

(1) APACH OF LUCK gets serious post relief. Pacing mare could boss these from the fence. (4) CANACO STAR did not race badly in her last trip. (7) SPRINGHOUSE STAR has hit the board in her last three tries.

Race 4

Will try (4) ALL STAR DRAGON to get back to his winning form. The 4-hole might help; maybe. (2) KID CRUISER moves inside for this event. Gelding could be the main danger in here. (1) NATURAL HABITAT could fare quite well from the fence.

Race 5

(4) FLEX THE MUSCLE just missed the victory last out and had to settle for place money. Seven-year-old seems to be ready for action against this group. (3) THE NORTHERN DUDE was sent down the road in his recent try for all the glory upstate. (2) MAMA MADE ME BLUE raced evenly in his last start; watch out.

Race 6

(3) OUTA MY HEAD needs a much better trip than in his last start. If he gets involved early, he could get the job done. (5) CUTTY SHARK leaves the 8-hole and has fine speed; main danger. (2) GETONTHEWAY could land a share of the purse.

Race 7

(6) TEXAS CAVIAR flashed fine speed in her last try. Pacing mare can take this with a fine-timed drive from Carlson. (3) KAMWOOD LAUGHTER N gets post relief and that could help her chances tonight. (4) UP FRONT CRUISER has wheeled off two straight victories against lesser.

Race 8

(7) MEETBEHINDTHEBARN had to settle for the show spot as the 4-5 favorite last time out. The good news is Brennan keeps the faith with this gelding; all systems go to bring home all the bacon. (5) SOUTHWIND CHASE could be right in the swing of things against these. (6) TALKTOMECOURAGE N has speed and clearly is not out of this.

Race 9

(1) ROCK N LOAD moves to the 1-hole and this gal moves down the ladder. Ready to rock and roll over this group. (5) SO NICE was sent down the road last out for win honors at Tioga. (4) I DO IT MYSELF has scored in her last three trips to the post.

Race 10

(2) MIKELEH comes off a mile that indicates she is ready to put her best foot forward. (1) KNOW IT ALL closed well to grab the victory last time around. (5) SIR JILLIAN Z TAM moves down in class.

Race 11

(1) JAILHOUSE FUNK is better than his last flop. Trotting gelding could get back on the right track from the 1-hole. (5) RINGSIDE MUSCLE is a sharp trotter that put in three good efforts; big threat. (8) TROTTIN TROY got the job done last out via the pocket route.

Race 12

(1) FLYING MOCHA was used up in the early stages last time around. This should be a better spot for her to get the job done. (2) CANT STOP ME NOW was just a little short for win honors last time out; dangerous. (4) ALITTLEEASTERMAGIC put in a mild rally for the placing recently at Philly; can't count her out of this.
