6: Ivory Kilobyte (Smith, Hunt)122/7-2

7: Kool Dreamin Destiny (Swiontek, Livingston)122/6-1

IVORY KILOBYTE exits two troubled lone starts but is entitled to move forward to earn diploma. Trainer Hanson has two first-timers being unveiled tonight with FIRWATERED BUGWINKL and DIRT ROAD QUEEN, who enter with solid training sessions.

2 250 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $9,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: First Class Ms (Frink, Pride)124/8-1

2: NCC Sunshine (Torres, Svendsen)124/7-2

6: Volcoms Crash (Eikleberry, Harris)124/9-2

7: Teller Jazz (Luark, Blair)124/5-1

8: Lookin Foxy (Smith, Clay)124/9-2

LOOKIN FOXY has been breaking alertly in previous starts, which will be a strong factor in winning this short sprint. NCC SUNSHINE weakened late last out but showed good early speed out of the gate. FIRST CLASS MS and TELLER JAZZ are must use on tickets and are major players.

3 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Fiskey (Velazquez, Scherer)119/6-1

2: Tommyschenanigans (Butler, Bravo)119/3-1

3: Jacksonburg (Shepherd, Robertson)119/5-1

4: Indy N Mission (Hernandez, Fauchald)118/10-1

5: Proud Bull (Franco, Silva)119/4-1

6: Champagnebythesea (Stevens, Bethke)123/8-1

7: Bin Tough (Keith, Bravo)119/5-1

8: Gadzooks (Eikleberry, Silva)119/6-1

TOMMYSCHENANIGANS has good early foot with drop in class, which should be the formula in breaking his maiden in his third start. BIN TOUGH ships up from Lone Star for the Bravo barn and would like to see quick fractions with his late closing finish and Lori Keith aboard. PROUD BULL blew the turn last race as the favorite on the wet track but should comeback firing with good early speed as he did two back by running second-best.

4 About 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $16,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Mr. Cacht (ARG) (Bell, Chambers)119/3-1

2: Blast’em (Eikleberry, Silva)119/8-1

3: Baton On Fire (Butler, Rhone)119/8-1

10: Omar’s Tiger (Shepherd, Berndt)119/6-1

11: Porfido (CHI) (Stevens, McFarlane)119/5-1

MR. CACHT drops a level in class and distance with good early speed off the rail and looks to be the one to catch with new jockey Bell at the helm. This 9-year-old gelding has paid dividends in his past 10 races. BLAST’EM also drops in class and distance invading from Turf Paradise for the Silva barn and will be flying late and also has been a rival of Mr. Cacht in previous races. STALKING LION won two back with Lori Keith aboard at this distance and should be tough reuniting tonight.

5 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Visual Blessing (Martin, Bolinger)123/7-2

2: Gracias (Eikleberry, Silva)123/9-2

3: Prophet’s Song (Olesiak, Wekseth)123/5-1

4: Silver Splendor (Franco, Silva)123/6-1

5: Yodelin’ Angel (Vergara, Lund)123/5-1

6: Somerset Swinger (Bell, Robertson)123/5-2

7: Cowgirl Greeley (Canchari, Bethke)119/10-1

SOMERSET SWINGER just missed last out chasing a fast pace, which should be the case once again with a field full of early speed. Look for another step forward with this filly improving each race.

VISUAL BLESSING will get ground-saving trip from the rail and also will be stalking the front runners coming off her career best effort. YODELIN ANGEL has finished no worse than second in the past five starts but now steps up to allowance from the claiming level and will be up front with others slugging it out.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sweet Ole Somerset (Shepherd, Donlin)123/15-1

2: Gail’s Jewel (Canchari, Robertson)123/4-1

3: Safe N Rich (Martin, Litfin)123/7-2

4: La Malinche (Von Rosen, Suter)123/20-1

5: Howhi Isthewater (Shaw, Jones)123/20-1

6: Valari (Hernandez, Bends)118/3-1

7: Le Chot Jolie (Ochoa, Riecken)123/10-1

8: Devil Her Diamond (Eikleberry, Padilla)123/2-1

GAIL’S JEWEL drops in class off the long layoff shipping up from Oaklawn for the Robertson barn and has been training extremely well, including a bullet drill last work. VALARI steps down a slight level and is versatile enough to grab the lead or sit off the pace and needs only to maintain present form to be in the hunt. DEVIL HER DIAMOND comes in with a couple of place finishes showing early speed but fading late in both and getting caught late.

7 1 mile 70 yards. fillies and mares. Maiden claiming $15,000. Purse: $12,650.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Lovely Hue (Vergara, Lund)118/9-2

2: Ehrengard (Bell, Ranwick)118/30-1

7: G G’s Silent Siege (Fackler, Robertson)118/10-1

8: Not a Girlie Girl (Keith, Hanson)118/4-1

9: Tahkodha Belle (Garnett, McFadden)123/10-1

10: Demi’s Hope (Arroyo, Rampadarat)118/30-1

CITY KID didn’t dig the turf experiment last out but should be in the mix here with the plunge in class with decent early speed to be a factor from the break. GG’S SILENT also takes significant drop off lone turf start and should expect late closer to pick up the pieces if set for first two-turn race on the dirt. LIL’ GIZMO has run third in past two efforts gaining late.

8 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,000.

9: Supremo Struckgold (Rivera, Scherer)121/4-1

10: Evert (Canchari, Porter)117/10-1

LOOKIN AT LARRY ran career-best race last out breaking his maiden driving to three length victory. Concern is the bounce after that effort. SUE’S STORMY and SUPREMO STRUCKGOLD finished strong in same race last out losing by less than a length to winner.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Zippy Trip (Goodwin, Brinson)123/3-1

2: Miss Taylor K (Bell, Kirby)118/15-1

3: Okra Wind Free (Martin, Scherer)118/5-2

4: Hot Cherry Pie (Escobar, Kirby)118/7-2

5: Society Rose (Rivera, Van Winkle)123/10-1

6: Rock Hard Legacy (Canchari, Berndt)118/4-1

7: Tickle Me Twice (Shepherd, Sheehan)123/12-1

8: Rosyredpepper (Olesiak, Hartman)123/15-1

ROCK HARD LEGACY clipped heels last out on the turf against much tougher and should be set to fire as possible lone speed in a field and class more to her liking. OKRA WIND FREE closed extremely well last run to get up for second at this level and distance. ZIPPY TRIP stretches her legs out after running third in short sprint for trainer Brinson and excels second time off the layoff.
