6: Lika Nightmare (Delorme, Miller)124/5-1

Wide open Quarter Horse race to start the evening. DREAMWIDE OPEN shortens up in distance after running second in last effort. LIKA NIGHTMARE broke maiden last out at a big price. MISS RACY FIRST DOWN failed to respond last out after breaking maiden two back.

7: Jackseasychick (Shaw, Clevenger)126/8-1

8: Heza Jumpn (Suarez Ricardo, Ibarra)124/10-1

PAPA WHEELY exits a rough and troubled start last out and could improve with clean break at a nice price. OBAKABY ANNIE and JACKEASYCHICK are two major contenders who should be decent prices at post time.

3 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,000.

6: Miss Terina (Keith, Biehler)123/9-2

7: M C Selena (Goodwin, Brueggemann)123/10-1

IS THIS A SECRET surprised many with her victory last out after coming up from Prairie Meadows after some lackluster performances. Looks to be the one to catch once again. MISS TERINA should enjoy the distance relief after running third but many lengths behind the winner at a mile. Won one turn race two back after stalking the pace. WILD IN RIO will be chasing our top pick, who improved last effort pressing the pace to get up for place.

4 About 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,000.

11: Stone Crazy (Shepherd, Robertson)118/4-1

12: Sal’z Romeo (Escobar, Troche)118/12-1

HESHOOTS HESCORES is among a few in here that exited the no-contest race when the gate malfunctioned. Versatile gelding may find himself on the lead with Butler aboard and can run on either surface in case rain moves the race. STONE CRAZY will attempt turf racing once again after last race was taken off where he finished third as the favorite on the sloppy course. TIGER RUN crossed the finish line first in the no-contest race, setting the pace but using to his advantage the gate opening at the start, compared to many rivals.

5 About 1 mile 70 yards. fillies and mares. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $18,000.

8: Final Moment (Butler, Rhone)123/8-1

9: Mingun’s Peaches (Goodwin, Rengstorf)123/7-2

MINGUIN’S PEACHES set the pace last out at this distance but was caught late holding on for place honors. Look for jockey Goodwin to send the mare out smoking from the outside post to get the lead. SWEET TANGO and KRISSY’S PAW both try the lawn for first time and are bred well to run on grass. Krissy’s Tiger Paw has slight class edge. AARON’S BELT must be included in the mix and has started slowly last two races.

6 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,000.

5: Swift Progress (Escobar, Brinson)123/7-2

6: R Skydiver (Martin, Silva)123/5-2

7: Hi Prim (Shepherd, Sheehan)123/10-1

R SKYDIVER set pace last out but weakened late settling for the show money. Could be tough to catch if able to set moderate fractions with no real front runners in the field. POWERS OFF THE COURT drops a level off the turf and returns to preferred main track where he won with late closing bid two back. SWIFT PROGRESS got in tight early then swooped five wide with late closing kick in troubled race. Logical late closing threat without all the drama.

7 6 furlongs. Open. Claiming $15,000. Purse: $14,000.

7: Know No Somerset (Eikleberry, Donlin)123/4-1

8: Jackraymondjames (Martin, Bethke)123/6-1

Have to go with the favorite QUOTE TO CASH coming off the drop on the turf for the Robertson barn and will be flying late. Lack of field early speed is a cause for concern. APPEALS THE DEAL should be your lone front-runner with Stevens taking the helms. Had bobbled start last out before rushing to the front to lead the field before fading to second. WINTPAY won closing late off a 10-month hiatus, driving to a two-length victory.

8 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,000.

7: Three Buttons Down (Ochoa, McFarlane)123/8-1

8: Eighteen Wheels (Goodwin, Brueggemann)123/4-1

EIGHTEEN WHEELS comes off a third-place finish as the chalk after winning in the mud in season’s debut going gate-to-wire. Needs only to regain front-running performance to be a major factor and must rate higher for moisture on the track. CASH CALL AL takes significant drop off the turf and returns to sprinting on the soil where he won two back by a three-length margin. FRANZ won last out from to start to finish as the speedball up front on a muddy track.

9 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $27,000.

7: Cinco Y Cinco (Bell, Robertson)119/5-1

8: Bobble Doit (Butler, Rhone)123/9-2

9: Speakfromyourheart (Keith, Hanson)123/8-1

Great betting race, with many ways to go in this evenly matched field. VIVA VERDE ships in for the Silva barn after facing tougher on the west coast and enters tonight with a strong series of works including a quick bullet at four furlongs. BOREALIS WAY will be pressing the issues up front as usual and has hit the money in all three starts this summer. CINCO Y CINCO won last out driving late for Robertson/Bell team. J T’s GOLD is the one to catch at a expected big price.

7: Blue Moon High (Rivera, Oliver)123/9-2

8: Bloomtown Baby (Olesiak, Smith)123/7-2

CLEVER PEAKS drove clear to a six-length victory at this distance with ground-saving rail trip. Needs only to maintain present form to beat this group. BLOOMTOWN BABY ran for silver medal to Clever Peaks that race as the favorite. RITA’S CHEETAH is the one to catch on the slight level drop. Concern is habit of weakening down the stretch.
