9: Vanderboom Ridge (Eikleberry, Biehler)124/9-2
PINE GROVE ROAD beat a few of his rivals last out and is capable of another step forward second off the bench. MYSTORYNMSTIKNTOIT is the horse to beat if the race is taken off the turf. Seasoned veteran will control his own destiny on the lead. STRATTON and TENSPEED ran for the minor awards behind Pine Grove Road, and look to turn the table on top choice.

13: Two Chance (Loveberry, Donlin Jr.)124/8-1
RAGGED EDGE will be storming late, bringing up the rear with his late kick. Came up late last out in stakes race. EMPIRE KNIGHT was a neck shy last effort, and too will be rolling late picking up the pieces down the stretch. WHY FRANK usually gets in the gimmicks, but still looking for first win of the year. ISMUSBEMYLUCKYDAY is the one to catch to get the win.

12: Lookin Ata Runaway (Eikleberry, Rengstorf)120/12-1
FIRST HUNTER has been runner-up the past two races against much tougher. This battler will be in the mix from the start. YANKEE PRIDE steps up with confidence, after winning by six lengths last out as the favorite. Expect to prompt the pace from the start. DOUBLE EXPRESSO looks to rebound, after contaminated break took her out of race last out.

8: Life’s Battles (Arrieta, Bratcher)120/10-1
9: Choral Song (Sanchez, Pfeifer)124/4-1
WILBURN’S ANGEL jumps off the turf with the drop in class, and price will be right to give a look. If ready to go, the filly will be doing her better running in later stages. CHORAL SONG came in a dollar short last out as the favorite, after winning two back sprinting. Expect FLOWERS FOR TEAGAN and WHAT’D I MISS to battle for the lead from the break. Both are consistent fighters when things unfold.

7: Drop of Golden Sun (Sanchez, Rengstorf)120/9-2
8: Ray’s Angel (Velazquez, Biehler)120/3-1
RAY’S ANGEL will get perfect stalking trip with all the speed to his inside. Came up a neck short in lone start. WINTERS RUN will attempt to lead the field to the wire, but won’t get a picnic on the lead. Has failed to hold the lead last three efforts. DERBYS MONEYMAKER will need the pace to collapse in order to have a shot at a price.

7: Event of Default (Bedford, Goodsell)115/12-1
SKIRT WARNING cuts his value in half, after second place effort last out. Sharp barn adds appeal. SAMMIE’S TOUCH was a multiple length winner last out and will be knocking heads for the lead out of the gate. PERFECT PARADISE showed brief speed facing tougher last out and could last longer with the drop in class.

7: Mines Made Up (Butler, Broberg)124/5-2
MINES MADE UP will have all of the speed in the world to the inside of him, for first attack sitting off-the-pace. PLASKA brings plenty of early zip to the game, and will be pushing the pace from the get-go. RICHARD THOMAS ran third third last out, after some minor traffic troubles down the stretch. Looks to move forward with clean trip.

TEQUILA N TACOS returns to sprinting on the main track, after below-par performance last out sprinting on the turf. Winner two-back by six lengths. MACHI puts the hood on for first time in her career. A strong angle for trainer Broberg. S S TAYLOR won two-back in impressive fashion sprinting, and looks to rebound after failing to fire on the grass last out.
