1-Eastern Promise – May add a third Hambo prospect for Marcus Melander, new acquisition is a $90,000 Chapter Seven colt who flashed some promise at two, lands the rail again off a solid comeback without trotting hopples, chased a heavy favorite Yes Mickey


5-Decadence –Second foal out of the stakes winning dam Self Indulgent, the first Dolce Ducci, 1:54.2 [$262,886], this one for 14 filly has picked up her game @ Pocono, a solid second in two of her last three there for Jonas Czernyson


6-Foxtail Lily – Cantab Hall filly whose dam Yursa Hanover, 1:52.3 [$910,567] was a multiple stakes winner, like Decadence she too has ramped up her form in PA & fits well here



4-Kinda Lucky Lindy – Lindy Farms homebred stepped up & stepped out going all the way in a confident second Baby Race & now Scott Zeron takes the lines, may worth a swing


1-Cruising In Style – Ontario-bred Muscle Mass colt ships in a perfect three-for-three, lands the rail off a decisive debut in NYSS @ Tioga for the popular fractional ownership group


2-Classichap – Chapter Seven brother to the great Market Share, 1:50.2 [$3,789,351] shows two nice preps @ Gateway before the miscue @ Tioga, look for a rebound effort from this Smedshammer trainee from an inside post



5-Tito – His dam is a sister to the great Peaceful Way, 1:51.4 [$2,746,240], added trotting hopples & opened some eyes with his strong finish from far back behind Seven Iron, look for him to be closer from the midpack draw


8-Seven Iron – Attracts obvious attention here fresh off his game grind & narrow loss to the trip-sitting FunknPancakes last week, except the post is more demanding this time


4-Lindsey’s Pride – The other Erv Miller trainee finished a close second to Unforgetable in his only Baby Race, then was pace compromised in a relatively quick NYSS @ Tioga, draws well here in a wide-open division with logical upside



1-Chanel Me – Leads the Takter trio in this one after tripping out & drawing clear in her second Baby Race, first foal out of the 2012 Dan Patch Award winner & Breeders Crown champion draws the rail for top flight connections


3-Repentance – First foal out of a sister to several six-figure winners including Swan Image, 1:51.4 [$628,952], Toscano-tuned Chapter Seven homebred won her third Baby Race with a nice late surge & draws well


6-Altar Gal – One of two Chuck Sylvester trainees in here, her late bid to hit the board from post eight @ Harrah’s Philadelphia was encouraging, first foal out of Choir Robe, 1:55.3 [$179,439]



2-P L Jill – Improving mare makes her third start for a new barn fresh off a very good fourth in a world record 1:51 Miss Versatility division here, gained into a serious :54.1 back half & draws post two again with Super Brett


3-Deacon Tony – Except for the parked out trip from post ten two starts back  it looks like this Burke-tuned Hambo eligible has picked up his confidence & draws inside for Gingras


7-Montalbano Bi – Shook loose with the mile of his life two starts back, then had too much to make up in a tougher class, lands in a wide-open mixed bag while still in top form



8-Caviart Ally – On a recent roll against top level stakes company, runner up from post eight in the Lynch Final, chance to rebound off a miscue @ Pocono with her tactical speed


4-Tica Hanover – Seemed a tad overmatched the PA Allstars @ Pocono, just missed two starts back in this class & draws inside to set up her preferred stalking trip


7-Shesarocker – Very consistent filly at the NY Excelsior A level for the high percentage Buter barn, picks up Super Brett & look for her to fire out & make an impression



5-Oho Diamond – Acclimated well with a third behind standout Hannelore Hanover in a track record 1:50.3, gets some class relief & picks up Super Brett


1-Victor Gio IT – Takter Hambo prospect rebounded off a break with a gutsy parked out third by half a length, the rail facilitates a smooth getaway & he could steal away from this bunch


6-Winter Harbor – Bounced back with a strong qualifier, then chased Walner from an impossible

spot, second try off the bench for this 1:52.4 winner back on 5-26



1-Dawson Springs – Brittany Farms homebred finished a solid third in an eye-catching :27.2 behind Hill Street & lands the pole position off that inspiring opener


6-Hill Street – Another bright Brittany Farms bred prospect, was able to convert a perfect two-hole trip behind heavy favorite Farsetti Hanover & outsprinted that rival in a sharp :27.3, dam is a sister to Triple Crown champion Glidemaster, Takter trainee trending skyward


3-Story Time Hanover – Takter-tuned Muscle Hill followed up his Baby Race win with a perfect trip upset in his Kindergarten debut & draws a better post, dam is a sister to 1:52.2 performer & millionaire Dejarmbro



3-Grand Teton – A Rocknroll Dance sister to Pure Country, 1:48 [$1,804,711] cruised in her debut @ Harrah’s Philadelphia for Team Takter, prepped with some nice moves before that


4-Odds On Lauderdale – Nosed out by Key Advisor in his second Baby Race, then third with a :26.2 while pace compromised in his debut, much better post here for this Alagna trainee, dam is a sister to Rock N Roll World, 1:48.3 [$624,408]


1-Macadoodledoo – Second foal out of the 1:50.3 performer Pirouette Hanover [$608,759] just missed to the heavy favorite Speed To Market, who stole a :58.1 half, another live Takter pupil moves inside



2-Achille Duharas – Takter-tuned Hambo eligible was a gutsy winner from post seven two starts back, took charge & didn’t quite measure up to the PA Allstars, returns to the mile track & lands in a softer spot


1-Muscle High – Gelding reeled off two in a row last month for Team Toscano, then faltered in the slop from post eight, big chance to rebound from the rail with the red-hot Bionic Man


6-No Bus For Us – Lightly-raced Muscle Massive sister to Taco Tuesday, 1:52.3 [$290,937] kicked off her sophomore season with two in a row, then just missed in the PA Allstars, she’s a threat with the improving trend in gear



4-Reign On Me – Dismissed at 14-1 off her Baby Race win here in :27.3 & was pace compromised chasing Kissin In The Sand in the first leg, her dam Indulge Me banked $675,165 & was a 1:52 performer


8-Kissin In the Sand – Pricey Somebeachsomewhere filly brushed n crushed them in round one from post seven, dam is a sister to Kikikatie, 1:50.3 [$1,268,463], looms large again


1-Blue Grotto – Brittany Farms bred Art Major sister to Sicily, 1:51 [$265,287] exploded to win her second Baby Race with a strong back half of :56.1, lands to pole facing some more experienced foes
