  • Updated: August 3, 2013 - 7:33 PM



Post time: 1:30 p.m. Best bet: Grand and Regal (2nd race). Best play: 50 cent Pick 4—Race 1 (1,3,4,5,6,7/10/1,2,3,4,6,8,9,11,12/6,10,11), $81

1 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Dabblin N Cocoa (Martin, Scherer)119/8-1

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

3: Box Office Appeal (Keith, Riecken)119/4-1

4: Ambusher (Shepherd, Wilkes)119/3-1

5: Rather Outspoken (Rivera, Porter)119/5-1

6: Mount Stepney (Escobar, Sweere)123/6-1

7: The Grans (Bell, Lund)123/7-2

AMBUSHER enters off the class drop for the Ian Wiles barn and last raced at Belmont against much tougher and has worked nicely since. THE GRANS has good early speed cutting back in distance and should get nice stalking trip coming from the outside. MOUNT STEPNEY and DABBLIN N COCOA begin careers today for trainers who like to win at first asking.

2 5½ furlongs. State bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $7,500. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: This Is the Bizz (Velazquez, Bethke)119/12-1

2: Big Willo (Shaw, McFadden)123/20-1

3: Ghazi’s Patch Work (Shepherd, Litfin)123/20-1

4: Hall of Justice (Hernandez, Fauchald)118/15-1

5: Our Best Shot (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/5-1

6: Demi’s Star (Smith, Rampadarat)123/10-1

7: Sonny Money (Eikleberry, Silva)119/9-2

8: Holy Brass (Swiontek, Weir)118/12-1

9: Run Away Indian (Canchari, Bethke)119/15-1

10: Grand and Regal (Stevens, Van Winkle)123/8-5

11: Demis Bold Ruler (Trimble, Rampadarat)123/15-1

GRAND AND REGAL was a beaten favorite last out settling for place honors but looks to have found ideal field to get first win. RUN AWAY INDIAN ran a clunker last out in field way over his head but should enjoy running against peers on his own level. SONNY MONEY is consistent runner who will make a presence with late surge.

3 11⁄16 miles. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $18,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Wonder Country (Shepherd, Berndt)123/8-1

2: Talk About Me (Canchari, Brinson)123/8-1

3: Ladies’ Last Trick (Bell, Lund)118/8-1

4: She’s the Cat (Rhone, Arterburn)123/6-1

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

6: She’s Mighty Fast (Eikleberry, Padilla)118/7-2

7: Diamond City (Canchari, Canchari)123/30-1

8: Sajani (Rivera, Brinson)123/20-1

9: Miss Amelia (Martin, Suter)123/15-1

10: Momentime (Garnett, Canchari)123/30-1

11: Brassy Touch (Escobar, Ibarra)118/5-1

12: Candy Paint (Hernandez, Burgess)118/9-2

SHE’S MIGHTY FAST has best overall numbers in the field but lack of closing kick is bit concerning. Could improve on the class drop finding her late run. LADIES’ LAST TRICK could shock at a nice price and is bred well to run on the turf with jockey Bell aboard. Both outside runners BRASSY TOUCH and CANDY PAINT have tough assignments with their starting positions but are among several here who could be in the hunt down the stretch.

4 5½ furlongs. State bred. Fillies and mares. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Gaelic Pride (Rivera, McKinley)123/10-1

2: Bakken Formation (Goodwin, Smith)123/10-1

3: Enduring Angel (Canchari, Fennell)123/15-1

4: Our Rianna (Martin, Bethke)119/6-1

5: Need a Bailout (Shaw, Smith)123/10-1

6: Lady’s Edition (Escobar, Pfeifer)123/9-2

7: Molly McCracken (Canchari, Wolff)123/6-1

8: Ajolieskier (Goodwin, Rarick)123/12-1

9: Lady Driver (Shepherd, Donlin)123/20-1

10: Souper Four (Butler, Donlin)123/3-1

11: Jenn’s Girl (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)119/10-1

SOUPER FOUR does have early speed but will have to use early starting from the 10-hole in a race with a plethora of price runners. LADY’S EDITION has been a non-factor with troubled trips and starts but maybe the world stops today in a field more to her liking. Draw a line through the last race for JENN’S GIRL. She looks to be the one to catch firing out with Eikleberry aboard.


5 7½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $20,000. Purse: $14,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Velvet Kay (Ochoa, Berndt)119/12-1

2: Sweet Afleet (Goodwin, Brinson)119/8-1

3: Appealing Dancer (Stevens, Porter)119/8-1

4: Parris Island Babe (Franco, Silva)119/6-1

5: S S Much Ado (Martin, Sanchez)119/20-1

6: Class of Twentyten (Hernandez, Rengstorf)114/5-1

7: Nebraskan Frost (Canchari, Litfin)119/20-1

8: Ramsay (Escobar, Rengstorf)123/12-1

9: A Thousand Talents (Shepherd, Kirby)123/10-1

10: Andrea’s Josie (Rivera, McKinley)123/6-1

11: Sismonceo (Von Rosen, Sheehan)119/15-1

12: Golden Encore (Butler, Bravo)123/9-2

GOLDEN ENCORE has the ability to get to the front, which has been a winning formula of late. Failed to fire last out but drop in class can cure that. CLASS OF TWENTYTEN also has early speed but has habit of fading fast in the end. Shortening up should help today. SWEET AFLEET and A THOUSAND TALENTS are major players in this wide-open affair.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bizet (Eikleberry, Padilla)119/6-1

2: National (Franco, Silva)121/10-1

3: Rainier Ice (Bell, Rarick)121/8-1

4: Shimmy Tinjo (Canchari, Robertson)119/3-1

5: Just Jebicah (Rhone, Arterburn)121/5-1

6: Speakfromyourheart (Keith, Hanson)123/6-1

7: Careless Hunter (Escobar, Lund)119/8-1

8: Limo (Stevens, Robertson)123/6-1

9: Freedom First (Shepherd, Donlin)119/8-1

Like to see SPEAKFROMTHEHEART sit off the expected heated pace within striking range and take over like he did last out in this great betting race. JUST JEBICAH comes off a unimpressive performance on the turf after winning at this distance two back at a firing pace holding on stubbornly. Expect Robertson stablemates SHIMMY TINJO and LIMO to be in the hunt in the wild stretch run.

7 1 mile 70 yards. fillies and mares. Allowance. Purse: $32,400.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Top Vow (Keith, Van Winkle)118/10-1

2: Holly in April (Stevens, Robertson)123/9-2

3: Dear Hrishi (Rivera, Van Winkle)123/8-1

4: Pleasant Life (Bell, Hanson)123/4-1

5: Aaron’s Belt (Martin, Weir)123/5-1

6: Dear Fay (Canchari, Robertson)123/5-1

7: Sam’s Grindstone (Eikleberry, Rengstorf)123/10-1

8: Space Opera (Velazquez, Scherer)118/10-1

9: Blues Edge (Butler, Rhone)123/5-1

PLEASANT LIFE could be tough with a reprise of last race coming off the pace in driving fashion to get length margin victory. BLUES EDGE has consecutive victories and has yet to be off the board in her six starts on the dirt and could prove tough if can transfer form to the grass. AARON’S BELT won by four lengths at this distance flying from the clouds after tight horrible start.

8 NCQHRA Futurity. 350 yards. 2-year-olds. Purse: $45,050.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Seis the Royal Cash (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/8-1

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

3: Engine Number Nine (Torres, Blair)122/9-2

4: Lil Chicks Corona (Frink, Johnson)122/12-1

5: Its a Royal Flush (Buening, Johnson)122/12-1

6: No Secret Faith (Luark, Blair)122/8-1

7: PYC First Prize Joe (Smith, Blair)122/3-1

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

9: Teller Toego (Shaw, Blair)122/10-1

10: Mafoosa (Smith, Clay)122/8-1

PYC FIRST PRIZE JOE is only runner in field with triple-digit speed numbers and won convincingly last out. SPORTWAGON finished a half-length behind top pick for second best and would love to turn the table today. ENGINE NUMBER NINE is no pushover and comes off hand ride impressive victory.

9 330 yards. 2-year-olds. Maiden. Purse: $11,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Toast to Jamison (Eikleberry, Hunt)122/6-1

2: PYC Investment (Torres, Charette-Hill)122/5-2

3: Itsallaboutme (Frink, Bloomquist)122/15-1

4: Chasin a Runaway (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/10-1

5: Trs Amazing Zach (Buening, Sayre)122/15-1

6: Shes Lookn Hothothot (Goodwin, Johnson)122/12-1

7: Speak Ez (Luark, Wessels)122/9-2

8: Tell Her Shes Queen (Smith, Clay)122/8-1
9: Too Much Fame (Von Rosen, Hanson)122/12-1

10: Valiant Wisdom (Smith, Hunt)122/5-1

PYC INVESTMENT dueled but weakened last effort at Remington Park finishing for show dollars. SPEAK EZ has a win and place medal in her three starts. VALIANT WISDOM came out quickly from gate and had brief lead before fading to fourth.
