RACE 1

3-Twist Of Fate – Late-blooming Art Major filly from a strong maternal line has caught the winning habit @ Dover & Yonkers for Joe Holloway, figures to be the target in a soft opener

 

6-Big Bad Beach – Hasn’t been worse than second in four starts in 2017, twice beaten chalk was blitzed by Ava N Ella last out, fresh from a three-week layoff

 

7-Dustlanemissmolly – Has steadily gotten better & adjusted to the mile track here, a decent third @ 70-1 chasing standout Ave N Ella in her last two

 

RACE 2

6-Karets – Was hammered down to 1-2 favorite, came to life & took full advantage of some class relief under very capable handling by Joe Lee, stands out in this one

 

1-Ellen’s Streak – Piled up some impressive stats here last season, moves inside off a no chance mile for a hot barn

 

10-Keystone Wallace – Draws a tougher post off a distant third to Karets, 10-time winner in 2016 has had a couple of needed starts here

 

RACE 3

2-Haileysgonedancing – Second time Lasix yielded a better result as she rallied for second behind the runaway Hot Summer Knight, now acclimated & lands the same inside post

 

1-New York Attitude – Toss out his latest in a Dash For The G Notes Final from post eight, just missed at 50-1 before that with a game wake-up mile

 

7-He’s An American – Just one for his last 22, emerged from a shuffle with minor spoils again, fourth start since a sick scratch with a chance to get it going in a wide-open field

 

RACE 4

7-Snow Cone A – Just missed in her first start off the bench on 2-3, overmatched from post eight @ Yonkers last out & returns here at the bottom level

 

5-Pan Luis Obispo – Team Burke trainee has gotten off to sluggish starts in her last two, has license to turn it around with some class relief

 

1-Goinroundincircles – Has been more aggressive & competitive at this level, held for a board spot last week, lands the rail & retains Super Brett

 

RACE 5

7-Wild Smile – Chased the far superior Rubber Duck in the qualifier here, then came charging home in a crisp :27.1 to just miss at 64-1 for his new barn

 

5-Kent County – Ships all the way from Delaware off a solid third & sports a recent win in a career best 1:56, big threat on best behavior

 

8-Tac’s Delight – 12YO showed back class with a heads up drive by Vinnie Ginsberg, tackles a tougher post, but remains on his game

 

RACE 6

3-Our Cullenscrown N – Beat these with a perfect trip back on 1-20, 14-time winner last year in line for another smooth trip in the bottom level group

 

4-Major Just Do it – Was knocking on the door finishing third twice in a row last month, drops back down & draws well in a camera-shy field

 

5-Must Be The Bunny – Rallied for third in :27.3 at 40-1 fresh off the bench, then failed to get involved, chance to light it up with an effort similar to the one on 2-2

 

RACE 7

9-Drunken Terror – Rallied stoutly to finish a solid second again last Saturday, recent Nick Surick claim going in the right direction

 

1-Found My Beach – Sharp claim here has tripped out to win two in a row & draws the rail fresh off a convincing score in a dash For The G Notes Final

 

5-Amped Up – Took a 1:51.4 mark here last season at age 8, fresh off a rousing score with pace at both ends, makes his third start for new barn

 

RACE 8

6-Theraputic – Team Burke newcomer has had some needed freshening, owns some back class, qualified adequately behind a far superior Burke trainee in Luminosity & returns at a reduced level

 

8-Fox Valley Steffen – Beaten favorite drops back down to the level of his strong finish & win two starts back for a stable hitting on all cylinders

 

4-Detroit Rapper – Consistent Team Harmon trainee gets away from the raging Never Ever Clever, draws a bit better & loves the long stretch here

 

RACE 9

4-Fresh Squeezed – Very productive record last year when she won here in 1:54.1, shows good recent form over off tracks @ Buffalo, changes barns & draws well in a wide-open field

 

1-Future Life – Only took two starts to break through here with the upset for the raging Mike Watson barn, in line for another stalking trip from the rail with Jim Marohn, Jr.

 

8-Try N Keep Up – May be trying to catch up here, stormed home to hit the board two starts back, a similar effort & decent speed target makes her a threat
