8: Tylers Cartel (Goodwin, Pride)126/10-1

PAINTMEONVELVET dueled but faded last out off the board. Expect better finish second off the layoff today. MOOSTACHE could improve with after a couple of faulty breaks from the gate. LEODORE will enjoy the added yards after closing well last out but running out real estate.

5: Specialscountrychick (Torres, Charette-Hill)126/2-1

6: Hastabealeader (Martinez, Johnson)126/6-1

Stablemates KOOL WAGON and SPECIALSCOUNTRYCHICK get top billing for trainer Charette-Hill. ... Kool Wagon got clean trip last out and was much the best on a muddy track. JESS A SIGN is a consistent, hard-working battler out of the hot Hardy barn.

6: Wheeler Gorge (Carreno, Diodoro)123/7-2

7: Wranger Reuben (Trimble, Berg)123/10-1

WHEELER GORGE drops off the turf for over half the price for newly claimed Diodoro barn. Sharp works entering. TIZN'T OVER saved ground last effort to get up for a place sharing. Should enjoy starting from ground saving rail position gathering momentum down the stretch. SOUTHERN JUSTICE could improve after rough start in the slop last out.

6: Epigraph (Stevens, Hawley)121/4-1

BELLS OF CONCERTO took well to the local track, finishing for place honors running wide whole route. Should get first crack at wall of speed up front. THE BOSSER too should enjoy frantic pace up front with her late closing foot. Expect BALLISTIC SUE and KVELL A LITTLE to be Ali vs Frazier from the get-go fighting for the lead.

10: Strong Luck (Castro, Flores)119/20-1

11: Skinny (Martin, Litfin)121/10-1

MEGASTAR made huge sweeping move getting up late for impressive 2½-length victory last out as the heavy favorite. KEEP ME POSTED lost the large lead to top pick Megastar. Expect front-runner to take them as far as he can once again. LET'S DO IT had tough assignment last out facing tougher and should be in the mix early. Popular TUBBY TIME makes his long-awaited return. Might need a race to stretch legs out.

9: Bad River Belle (Goodwin, Rhone)119/5-1

10: Jewel’s Honor (Stevens, Robertson)119/6-1

Mac Robertson sends out a couple of beginners for unveiling with solid works in LUCY WEARS PANDA and JEWEL'S HONOR. Lucy Wears Panda gets the slight nod with a couple of scalding bullet works and better post position. KATO MISS will be pursued by the field with decent early speed. Second last out as the favorite.

7: Why Frank (Rivera, Oliver)119/10-1

8: Evansville Runaway (Eikleberry, Shaw)119/6-1

ANGEL DE AMOUR stalked and finished strong last out, saving ground off the two-month layoff for place finish. Should enjoy added distance today. ALVEAR has class edge shipping up from Keeneland and looms late closing threat with his strong late closing foot. NIC A JACK dueled at punishing fractions last effort and will be the one to catch with new pilot Shepherd aboard. RUNANDYRUN is a must-use if taken off the turf.

9: Politicallycorrect (Hamilton, Ward)116/4-1

10: Countercyclical (Martin, Scherer)118/10-1

Dark Star Stakes is loaded with speed, POLITICALLYCORRECT should benefit from the contested fractions finding the perfect field off the long layoff. Have to believe the Ramsey/Ward team are here for business so expect this seasoned veteran to roll late. CASTLETOWN should prove tough opponent with first crack on the speed sitting off the pace. GHOST IS CLEAR best running has occurred on the synthetic but has class edge over most in field. COUNTERCYCLICAL is my price play who got off to awkward start last out on the turf.

12: Kiss to Remember (Eikleberry, Amoss)116/5-1

13: Maria Maria (Russell, DiVito)116/8-1

KISS TO REMEMBER’S lone effort on the turf was a four-length margin stakes victory at the Fair Grounds for trainer Tom Amoss. Gets added distance today, which should sit very well for this 3-year-old filly. HIGH WIRE KITTEN got off slowly in Grade 3 race at Gulfstream Park last out, taking her out of the race. Training extremely well entering today's featured race. STELLARIS and ICE FOR LADY will be major players in the hunt, especially if taken off the turf.

8: Trouble'smyname (Olesiak, Roberts)122/6-1

Wide open affair to end the day. A.K. ECHO has had two consecutive bumpy starts and could be tough with clean break in class relief. ROCKET REBEL dips in class shipping up from southern racing. Seeking to break maiden in fourth attempt on the drop. HE'S A WIZARD is the one to catch off the inside draw.

6: Brassy Lucky Lady (Escobar, Ibarra)123/5-1

WONDER ABOUT LOLA comes the bench for nearly a year. Has been training extremely well for Robertson. Strictly the one to beat. ADORKABLE, too, enjoyed a long break and will be rolling late if ready to fire. ARCH CRIMINAL will give sprinting a shot after failed efforts at two turns on and off the turf.
