#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bayou Bull (A. Canchari, Porter)123/6-1

2: Bright Perfection (Bell, Asmussen)119/5-1

3: Dazzle You (Delorme, Pfeifer)119/8-1

4: Scorned Woman (Velazquez, Scherer)123/9-2

5: Scorned (Butler, Bravo)119/4-1

6: Makinmymark (Eikleberry, Lund)123/7-2

7: Box Office Appeal (Keith, Riecken)119/5-1

SCORNED has ability to grab the lead in a field lacking a true front-runner. Ran second two back sitting up front at quick fractions. MAKINMYMARK comes in with a bullet drill for the Lund barn; ran and finished behind our top last out. SCORNED WOMAN begins racing career today with a strong series of works for trainer Scherer, who likes to win at first asking from his runners.

Race 2: 6 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies and mares. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Souper Four (Butler, Donlin)123/4-1

2: Cinder Ellie (Shaw, Oliver)123/20-1

3: Lady Driver (A. Canchari, Donlin)123/15-1

4: Love for Lori (Stevens, C. Smith)123/12-1

5: Jenn’s Girl (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/6-1

6: Cap and Trade (Keith, Bravo)123/2-1

7: Informal Fannie (Martin, Bethke)119/5-1

8: Lucky Gem (Hernandez, Pfeifer)118/15-1

9: Bakken Formation (Olesiak, C. Smith)123/10-1

10: Ajolieskier (Eikleberry, Rarick)123/10-1

CAP AND TRADE should be able to sit off the expected heated pace duel and inhale the front runners when asked by Lori Keith. INFORMAL FANNIE is all speed. Won in gate-to-wire fashion two back at this level and distance. AJOLIESKIER drops in class with creditable stalking abilities. Could surprise at a decent price.

Race 3: MTA Stallion Auction Lassie Stakes. 6½ furlongs. Fillies. Purse: $35,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: B J’s Angel (Butler, Scherer)117/9-5

2: Kerisma (Martin, Lauer)122/7-5

3: Tra Kela (Eikleberry, Richard)122/7-2

4: Silver Somerset (Goodwin, Donlin)122/5-1

5: Solar Star (Escobar, Rhone)117/15-1

On paper KERISMA seems like the logical choice, but the step up from claiming level is cause for concern. Speed numbers and cutback in distance is the positive for this Churchill Downs shipper. TRA KELA should be the one to catch with no true front runner in the small group. SILVER SOMERSET won last out flying from the clouds.

Race 4: MTA Stallion Auction Laddie Stakes. 6½ furlongs. Purse: $35,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sugar Business (Eikleberry, Rengstorf)122/5-2

2: Lil’ Apollo (Goodwin, Pfeifer)122/4-1

3: Stormy Bull (Arroyo, Pfeifer)122/7-2

4: Bet Your Life (Keith, Biehler)122/7-5

5: Mr Grand Rapids (Butler, Rengstorf)122/8-1

BET YOUR LIFE is the single of the day on most tickets. Shortens up in distance off stakes race at Prairie Meadows. SUGAR BUSINESS could pull the upset if he can transfer his form off the turf to dirt. Was impressive running here last season. STORMY BULL ran third behind top pick last out.

Race 5: About 1 mile, 70 yards. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: A Thousand Talents (Escobar, Kirby)123/15-1

2: The Grans (Vergara, Lund)123/9-2

3: Minnie Macy (Eikleberry, Von Hemel)118/6-1

4: Prairie Lake (Shepherd, Donlin)118/12-1

5: Serious Gray (A. Canchari, Scherbenske)118/15-1

6: Dear Hrishi (Bell, Van Winkle)123/5-1

7: Rather Outspoken (Rivera, Porter)118/8-1

8: Bitter Tears (Rhone, L. Arterburn)123/4-1

9: Antique Angel (Hernandez, Van Winkle)113/20-1

10: Jordan’s Sorority (Martin, Lund)118/10-1

11: Nebraskan Frost (Velazquez, Litfin)118/15-1

12: Parris Island Babe (S. Stevens, Silva)118/15-1

13: Daring Ride (Eikleberry, Padilla)118/6-1

14: Unbridled’s Celtic (Swiontek, Weir)118/15-1

MINNIE MACY might have found the ideal group to begin her racing career for trainer Von Hemmel, who loves to win at first asking on the grass. BITTER TEARS finished off the board as the favorite last out; surprisingly didn’t take the lead as is her usual custom. Runs better in the lead, so look for change in tactics today. DEAR HRISHI is always in the mix but is camera-shy at the finish with her 0-39 record.

Race 6: 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $25,000. Purse: $29,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Page Meadows (Stevens, Wilson)119/12-1

2: Pocket Medal (Franco, Hartman)119/6-1

3: Jamaican Memories (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/8-1

4: Rainier Ice (Canchari, Rarick)121/6-1

5: Moroccan Brew (Bell, Robertson)123/4-1

6: So Shiny (Goodwin, Laing)119/20-1

7: Bizet (Eikleberry, Padilla)121/10-1

8: I’ll Show Them (Escobar, Brinson)119/7-2

9: Catfeinated (Butler, Brueggemann)119/8-1

10: Desert Alley (Shepherd, Robertson)119/8-1

Great betting race with many ways to go. MOROCCAN BREW cuts back in distance off a hard-fought victory. Should enjoy shortening up coming off the pace. I’LL SHOW THEM came running late to get up for place honors as the favorite and would love to see quick fractions up front to close in on. RAINIER ICE beat some of today’s rivals digging in and finishing up strong last out for second consecutive win at a huge price.

Race 7: About 7½ furlongs. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $18,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Toluca (Vergara, Silva)123/5-1

4: Bourbonology (Butler, Rhone)123/12-1

5: Correspondence (Goodwin, Riecken)123/15-1

6: Margo’s Delight (Rivera, Brinson)123/3-1

14: She’s the Cat (Rhone, Arterburn)123/10-1

15: Silent Cat (Goodwin, Kirby)123/15-1

HEAVENLY ALIBI could be tough returning to the turf in her first career start here. Has been facing better in a few tracks to the south. TOLOCA invades from Golden Gate for the Silva barn. Comes off a couple of minor money-making efforts. OF ROYALTY will try to get the lead and take the field as far as she can but will have to use some early energy starting from the 11-hole.

Race 8: 350 yards. 2-year-olds. Trials. Purse: $5,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: First Captain Dave (P. Canchari, Taylor)122/10-1

2: Cy Me N the Mountain (S. Smith, Clay)122/4-1

8: Sportwagon (Eikleberry, Harris)122/5-1

9: Red Stone Mountain (Von Rosen, Hanson)122/15-1

10: Its a Royal Flush (Buening, Johnson)122/8-1

SPORTWAGON keeps improving with speed each race and another step forward could put the baby in the winner’s circle. PYC FIRST PRIZE JOE puts the blinkers on after running fourth in Canterbury debut last month. ITS A ROYAL FLUSH has been facing tougher and has bragging right to two wins in five career starts.

Race 9: 350 yards. 2-year-olds. Trials. Purse: $5,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Dollar Corona (Ricardo, Hanson)122/9-2

2: Dream Secrets (Frink, Pride)122/12-1

3: Engine Number Nine (C. Smith, Blair)122/3-1

4: Dominike (Torres, Blair)122/10-1

7: Good Eye (Eikleberry, Clay)122/10-1

8: High N Wild (S. Smith, Hunt)122/12-1

9: Irish Brew (Shepherd, Hanson)122/6-1

10: Bhr Light My Fire (Buening, Johnson)122/5-1

DOLLAR CORONA just missed last out and should be in the hunt once again with Suarez Ricardo remaining aboard. ENGINE NUMBER NINE has hit the money gimmicks in all three starts and is a major contender. BHR LIGHT MY FIRE brings in a couple of futurity wins from South Dakota but will have to step it up a notch here.

Race 10: 350 yards. 2-year-olds. Trials. Purse: $5,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Teller Toego (Eikleberry, Blair)122/8-1

2: Mafoosa (S. Smith, Clay)122/7-2

3: Seis the Royal Cash (Ricardo, Hanson)122/5-1

4: Lil Chicks Corona (Frink, Johnson)122/5-1

5: Cosmic Wanderer (P. Canchari, Taylor)122/10-1

6: Naughty Flirtation (C. Smith, Blair)122/9-2

7: Call Me Spot (Buening, Johnson)122/8-1

8: First Royal Tac (Torres, Blair)122/6-1

9: Ohceho (Von Rosen, Sharp)122/20-1

NAUGHTY FLIRTATION ran a game second last out and just missed the win. MAFOOSA won last out and is lone competitor with a victory on the local track. SEIS THE ROYAL CASH is a consistent runner who is usually in the mix but no win to date.
