Post time: 6:30 p.m. Best bet: Chena Miss (10th race). Best play: 50 cent Pick 4 Play—Race 7 (3,4,5,6,8/1,4,6,7,8/1,2,3,4,7,10,11/2), $87.50

1 870 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $17,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Jess Another Reb (Frink, Pride)126/9-2

2: Jack Jessee (Von Rosen, Svendsen)126/4-1

3: Dangerous Guns (Luark, Miller)126/7-2

5: Streak N Hot (Shaw, Haglund)126/4-1

6: First Down Man (Buening, Taylor)126/8-1

7: Gunpowder Kid (Smith, Clay)126/5-2

GUNPOWDER KID finished off the board last out against some of today’s rival as the heavy chalk. Looked more like Jane than Tarzan in appearance so pre-race race scrutiny is important. DANGEROUS GUNS got up late four wide for win upsetting my top pick last out and has ability to repeat. JESS ANOTHER REB gets inside trip on the rail today after finishing five wide that same race just missing.

2 400 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $13,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Cy Captain Tom (Smith, Clay)124/9-2

2: My Magic Perry (Luark, Miller)124/5-1

3: Bac by Demand (Ruiz, Livingston)124/6-1

4: Dashinbyecrazyqueen (Frink, Pride)126/8-1

5: Dreamnwideopen (Torres, Willis)124/7-2

6: Dash Ta Ozona (Shaw, Johnson)124/12-1

7: Uno Mas Hero (Goodwin, Hardy)124/3-1

8: Explosive Guns (Fennell, Miller)126/12-1

DREAMNWIDEOPEN closed fast at this distance to get up for win at Remington as the favorite last out. MY MAGIC PERRY comes off a win after a bumpy start but driving fast for over a length victory. CY CAPTAIN TOM just missed in last two efforts as the chalk and has ran second five of last seven attempts for resume.

3 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $13,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bet the Bank (Bell, Chambers)123/4-1

2: Fort Humbug (Martin, Scherer)119/6-1

3: City Delivery (Franco, Bethke)123/10-1

4: Unchain the Train (Rivera, Porter)123/12-1

5: Seeking the Reward (Butler, Rengstorf)123/5-1

6: Trinity Tavern (Eikleberry, Sanchez)119/5-2

7: Smokin Mojo (Meier, Silva)123/15-1

8: Scotts Gap (Stevens, Reedy)123/7-2

SCOTTS GAP broke alertly and pressed the pace before taking over at quick fractions drawing away to clear victory. Could get nice stalking trip starting from far outside with Stevens remaining aboard.

TRINITY TAVERN makes first appearance up north shipping up from the Florida circuit off a couple of place honors but running in a holding pattern for both. BET THE BANK made late inside bid to get up for second after two month layoff and has realistic assignment to improve for Chambers barn.

4 About 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $21,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Keep Me Posted (Vergara, Van Winkle)119/4-1

2: Wolsfeld Woods (Luark, Ranwick)119/20-1

3: Little Wagon (Bell, Oberlander)119/7-2

4: Mint Humor (Franco, Diodoro)119/8-1

5: Oughterson (Butler, Biehler)119/12-1

6: Lucky Moon (Keith, Biehler)119/6-1

7: Aroney (Eikleberry, Scherer)119/6-1

8: Lost Camper (Rhone, Arterburn)119/6-1

9: Mr. Cacht (ARG) (Martin, Chambers)119/5-1

KEEP ME POSTED ran away from the field in mild upset last effort and should enjoy added distance today facing many of same rivals. MR CACHT ran third to our pick as the favorite seeing his three win streak broken. Consistent runner should be within striking range closing fast with clean trip looking to turn the table. LITTLE WAGON ran five wide gaining late against tougher last out as the chalk. LUCKY MOON returns to lawn where gelding did best running last year and now gets leading rider Lori Keith as the pilot.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Dear Hrishi (Rivera, Van Winkle)123/9-2

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

3: Daring Ride (Eikleberry, Padilla)118/8-1

4: Excusemeplease (Keith, Bravo)118/6-1

5: Andrea’s Josie (Canchari, McKinley)123/15-1

6: The Grans (Vergara, Lund)123/5-1

7: Ee Da How (Stevens, Lund)118/12-1

8: A Thousand Talents (Escobar, Kirby)123/20-1

9: Bluegrass Lucy (Ochoa, Brinson)118/7-2

10: Antique Angel (Franco, Van Winkle)118/30-1

BOURBONOLOGY could be tough to beat if regains last year’s form where the filly faced much tougher on the lawn in the New York circuit. EXCUSEMEPLEASE could be lone speed up front with lack of pace setters in the field. Comes off a runner-up finished on the dirt after being taken off the grass. THE GRANS last two efforts on the turf were disastrous while not completing the races but has some things to like previous to that against stronger fields. Must use BITTER TEARS if enters off AE list due to scratches.

6 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $14,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Befuddler (Keith, Bravo)119/3-1

2: Quick Wampum (Franco, Diodoro)119/6-1

3: Chappy Chick (Goodwin, Brueggemann)121/7-2

4: Prophet’s Song (Olesiak, Wekseth)123/9-2

5: A J Tango (Vergara, Lund)119/8-1

6: Visual Blessing (Butler, Bravo)121/6-1

7: Giacomo Girl (Stevens, Rarick)119/6-1

8: Blue Ra Ra (Von Rosen, Svendsen)121/12-1

BEFUDDLER should get perfect ground saving stalking trip off the rail to a couple of speedballs to the outside of her. Won last out drawing away to five length victory after pressing the pace before taking over. CHAPPY CHICK is one of the speedsters to catch who seeks third straight blue ribbon. Dean Butler jumps off the top pick to remain on VISUAL BLESSING who ran five wide as a duo in closing to get in the money gimmicks last out.

7 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Cherryful Lady (Canchari, Canchari)123/15-1

2: Iwantitallrightnow (Delorme, Gaede)123/6-1

3: Exclusive Clara (Keith, Biehler)119/7-2

4: Sweet Cool (Goodwin, Brueggemann)123/5-1

5: Wild in Rio (Martin, Bethke)123/6-1

6: Orchard House (Butler, Rengstorf)123/5-2

7: Threat Assessment (Eikleberry, Hanson)123/12-1

8: Light Kiss (Canchari, Litfin)123/10-1

9: Buccella (Vergara, Lund)123/12-1

WILD IN RIO has ability to sit off the pace or take the lead as she did last out winning by over four lengths. Competitive race has tons of speed so like to see jockey Martin get position behind front runners before attacking with final move. ORCHARD HOUSE is the class of the field and now drops in class who too possesses early speed with Butler aboard. SWEET COOL laid a egg last out after early lead before moon walking to 25-length defeat at Prairie Meadows. Had three straight wins previous so deserves another chance.

8 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Getting Birdie (Keith, Biehler)119/6-1

2: Save Your Story (Rivera, Van Winkle)123/8-1

3: Tavara (Canchari, Shorter)123/5-1

4: Ladyofthelilly’s (Goodwin, Brueggemann)123/5-2

5: Miss Luna (Martin, Rarick)119/10-1

6: Mia Bee A (Bell, Robertson)119/6-1

7: Fraudulentfootnote (Stevens, Green)119/8-1

8: Gracias (Eikleberry, Silva)123/7-2

LADYOFTHELILLY’s put the blinkers on today after a couple troubled starts after winning easily three back while ridden out. I expect filly to come out smokin. GRACIAS will give the top pick all she can handle up front coming off consecutive impressive victories leading the pack. GETTING BIRDIE will get a nice view of the heated pace up front to get first crack at with Lori Keith at the helm. MIA BEE A and FRAUDULENTFOOTNOTE are must plays on your tickets.

9 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Blarney d’Or (Goodwin, Brueggemann)123/7-2

2: Cantaffordanother (Stevens, Van Winkle)123/8-1

3: Devil Her Diamond (Eikleberry, Padilla)123/5-1

4: All Bets Are Off (Butler, Rengstorf)123/8-1

5: Doc’s Fu Peg (Von Rosen, Diodoro)123/30-1

6: Depeche (Vergara, Oliver)123/10-1

7: Speakers Action (Keith, Van Winkle)123/10-1

8: Borrego Babe (Franco, Shryock)123/12-1

9: La Malinche (Rivera, Suter)123/15-1

10: Lucky Brew (Olesiak, Danger)123/6-1

11: Safe N Rich (Martin, Litfin)123/10-1

12: Mane Slick (Escobar, Danger)123/12-1

BLARNEY d’ Or gets slight nod in wide open race starting from the rail with good early foot and cutting back a needed half furlong from last effort. DEVIL HER DIAMOND appears the one to catch with Eikleberry punching the go button from the gate after exiting place honors last effort. ALL BETS ARE OFF didn’t appreciate the sloppy course after failing to respond with double-digit length lost. Expect room for improvement on fast track.

10 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Society Rose (Rivera, Van Winkle)123/12-1

2: Chena Miss (Butler, Bravo)118/3-1

3: Our Rianna (Escobar, Bethke)118/15-1

4: Miss Taylor K (Goodwin, Kirby)118/12-1

5: Phantasmagoria (Ochoa, Rengstorf)123/6-1

6: Classy Shadow (Arroyo, Cole)123/6-1

7: Sweet Soul Sister (Meier, Silva)123/8-1

8: Tahkodha Belle (Von Rosen, McFadden)123/10-1

9: Givem Hell Harriet (Franco, Perez)118/10-1

10: Okra Wind Free (Martin, Scherer)118/4-1

CHENA MISS plunges in class off the turf coming up from Texas for the Bravo barn. Ideal spot for Canterbury debut against struggling maiden field. OKRA WIND FREE too jumps off the turf for trainer who has solid numbers at this angle. SWEET SOUL SISTER and TAHKODA BELLE are must use on tickets in a field with many questions but do have some things to like.
