11: Tiz Little Bull (Loveberry, Rengstorf)124/9-2

12: Its Noon Somewhere (Goodwin, Anderson)124/20-1

DERBY DANCE came up a neck shy off the extended layoff, and merits respect second time out. READY FOR WAR will be pursued by the field, and will use her early speed to be on the lead from the start. I NEVER GIVE UP has been third last two out and is a obvious danger when the filly unleashes her late run.

2 5 furlongs. Fillies. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $28,000

1: Gio’s Lil Angel (Eikleberry, Silva)118/6-1

6: Say It’s Not So (Butler, Schnell)118/8-1

7: Dicey (Hernandez, Swan)118/10-1

8: Delfina (Beschizza, Sharp)118/2-1

R H DANCEING QUEEN has been working steadily for trainer Diodoro, who usually has his babies locked and loaded. DELFINA has encouraging morning drills and will draw money at the window due to connections. SAY IT’S NOT SO is lone competitor with a race under her belt.

3 Lady Canterbury Stakes. 1 mile. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. G Stakes. Purse: $100,000

1: Molecules (Bermudez, Foley)112/15-1

2: Laura Ray (Loveberry, Hornsby)118/20-1

3: Lovely Loyree (Marquez Jr., Boyce)118/7-2

4: Burma Road (Landeros, Wilkes)122/5-1

5: Sirenusa (Beschizza, Sharp)116/9-2

6: Sailor’s Valentine (Cannon, Kenneally)118/6-1

7: Susie Bee (Graham, Maker)122/9-2

8: I’m Betty G (Gaffalione, Maker)118/3-1

SIRENUSA is undefeated in three starts and is clearly fast enough to run with the classy invaders in the Lady Canterbury Stakes. I’M BETTY G is the horse to beat, coming off a gate-to-wire win at Belmont Park. LOVELY LOYREE ships in from Tampa Bay Downs after a couple of graded stakes and figures to be in the hunt from the start. BURMA ROAD is another dangerous shipper and is a must use.

4 Mystic Lake Mile Stakes. 1 mile. Open. 3-year-olds and up. G Stakes. Purse: $100,000

1: My Bariley (Sanchez, Granitz)118/10-1

2: Conquest Windycity (Gaffalione, Maker)120/8-1

3: Ibaka (Eikleberry, Bravo)118/15-1

8: Swagger Jagger (Beschizza, Maker)122/3-1

9: Sonic Boom (Landeros, Wilkes)118/6-1

10: Patriots Rule (Mojica, Diodoro)118/12-1

11: Hay Dakota (Velazquez, Berndt)118/8-1

12: Lawless West (Goncalves, Offolter)118/20-1

SWAGGER JAGGER should benefit from contested fractions in the Mystic Lake Mile, and is talented enough to sit behind the pace for first attack. GREAT WIDE OPEN is a Irish bred with a ton of class. IBAKA, MAJESTIC PRIDE, HIGH SECURITY, and PATRIOTS RULE are the local favorites with the best chance of getting to the winner’s circle.

5 Mystic Lake Derby. 1 mile. Open. 3-year-olds. G Stakes. Purse: $200,000

1: Curlin’s Honor (Boulanger, Casse)116/5-1

2: Nobrag Justfact (Graham, Heitzmann)116/15-1

3: Cowboy Creed (Eikleberry, Litfin)116/15-1

11: Playoff Bound (Arrieta, Diodoro)116/20-1

12: Hyndford (Gonzalez, Diodoro)122/12-1

13: Reride (Vazquez, Asmussen)122/6-1

14: Primo Touch (Ramgeet, McFarlane)120/20-1

The Mystic Lake Derby is packed with 14 contenders in a wide-open race. CURLIN’S HONOR draws the rail with quick turn of foot, and will use his muscle to get up front before the quick first turn. CAPTIVATING MOON is a lukewarm favorite, but has been second past three out. HARDBOOT ships in from Santa Anita, where he was runner-up as the heavily bet favorite.

6 Dark Star Cup Stakes. 6½ furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. G Stakes. Purse: $50,000

1: He’s Munnie (Stevens, McFarlane)118/12-1

2: Devileye (Marquez Jr., Boyce)124/4-1

3: Creative Art (Graham, Davis)118/6-1

4: Luna de Loco (Goncalves, House)118/15-1

5: Malibu Max (Loveberry, Robertson)124/5-2

6: Bourbon Cowboy (Landeros, Diodoro)118/3-1

7: Wings Locked Up (Mojica, Stuart)124/7-2

Evenly matched field for the Dark Star Cup. DEVILEYE has yet to be off the exacta ticket in nine starts. Talented enough to sit in the wind tunnel behind the wall of speed, ready to attack. MALIBU MAX didn’t disappoint the Robertson barn on opening weekend, coming from off the pace to win the Paul Bunyan Stakes. Expect WINGS LOCKED UP to be in the mix from the start, trying to wear down rivals up front. BOURBON COWBOY looms the late closing threat.

7 Hoist Her Flag Stakes. 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. G Stakes. Purse: $50,000

1: Puntsville (Marquez Jr., Boyce)122/5-2

2: Escape Clause (Arrieta, Schnell)118/8-1

3: Foggia (Ramgeet, McFarlane)115/12-1

4: Diva’s Rule (Eikleberry, Bravo)118/10-1

5: Fight to Glory (Mojica, Diodoro)122/2-1

6: Thoughtless (Vazquez, Robertson)118/3-1

7: Shar Ran (Butler, Rhone)118/10-1

FIGHT TO GLORY gets the nod in the Hoist Her Flag Stakes. Field is loaded with speed, so like to see jockey Mojica keep the versatile filly off-the-pace ready to pounce. PUNTSVILLE is all about speed and expect the rider to send the mare hard out of the gate with the inside draw. THOUGHTLESS will appreciate the dazzling fractions to roll on.

8 6½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming: $12,500. Purse: $30,000

1: Star Hunter (Graham, Berndt)116/9-2

2: Ta Kela Warning (Butler, Rhone)120/8-1

3: Superstar Bea (Vazquez, Robertson)120/4-1

4: Alina’s Image (Prado, Litfin)120/10-1

5: Miss Ocean Express (Stevens, Donlin)120/12-1

6: Spell Winder (Quinonez, Donlin)122/15-1

7: Brechin’s Command (Eikleberry, Berndt)118/3-1

8: Natalie’s Mischief (Goncalves, Offolter)120/8-1

9: Axial Load (Loveberry, Padilla)122/9-2

BRECHIN’S COMMAND figures to be in the hunt from the start and is coming off a hard-fought win. TA KELA WARNING cuts back in distance after weakening late on a sloppy track. AXIAL LOAD drops a notch after settling for second as the chalk last out.

9 1 mile. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming: $12,500. Purse: $30,000

1: Slick as Ice (Butler, Padilla)124/8-1

2: Parched (Lindsay, Van Winkle)120/12-1

3: Candy My Boy (Vazquez, Stuart)122/6-1

4: Vanderbilt Beach (Sanchez, Riecken)120/8-1

5: Redesign (Gonzalez, Diodoro)114/4-1

6: Awesome Emmit (Eikleberry, Silva)122/5-1

7: Let’s Meet in Rio (Goncalves, Lund)120/4-1

8: Gettysburg (Mojica, Diodoro)120/3-1

AWESOME EMMIT looks to dust off and come back after finishing off-the-board as the favorite last effort. LET’S MEET IN RIO earned career-best speed figure last out for the win. GETTYSBURG looks to rebound for new barn, after failing to score at Oaklawn Park versus tougher.

10 6 furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Waiver claiming: $5,000. Purse: $12,500

1: Trident Hero (Goncalves, Litfin)124/12-1

2: Socratical (Arrieta, McFarlane)124/8-1

3: Lootn and Shootn (Loveberry, Bolinger)124/8-1

4: Justcallme Charlie (Sanchez, Rengstorf)124/10-1

5: The Last Prophet (Velazquez, Berndt)124/9-2

6: Shoot Craps (Mojica, Diodoro)124/3-1

7: Outrun the Posse (Eikleberry, Silva)124/5-2

8: Mines Made Up (Hamilton, Berndt)124/6-1

MINES MADE UP plunges in class after dull effort around two turns last out. OUTRUN THE POSSE will attempt to run out the clock on the lead. SHOOT CRAPS and THE LAST PROPHET will be in pursuit from the start and are strong contenders for win honors.
