Post time: 6:30 pm. Best bet: Safe N Rich (6th Race). Best play: Ladder Bet—Race 1, #9 Artistic Design—$10 win, $20 Place, $30 Show, $60 Total.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Indy N Mission (Hernandez, Fauchald)118/8-1

2: Cool Thunder (Keith, Biehler)123/10-1

3: Tuff Cowboy (Barton, Anderson)123/4-1

4: Distorted Day (Olesiak, Danger)119/20-1

5: Horse Divine (A. Canchari, Brinson)119/2-1

6: Hush My Mouth (Goodwin, Berndt)119/8-1

7: Cosmic Surfer (Butler, Rhone)123/6-1

8: Mancala (Delorme, McFarlane)119/15-1

9: Artistic Design (Eikleberry, Diodoro)123/9-2

ARTISTIC DESIGN has a realistic assignment of sitting off the pace and getting first attack on pacesetter; two quick works suggests he is cranked to go after well-extended rest period. HORSE DIVINE will be tough up front if runs back to last speed figure; trust factor with extra half-furlong is concern if pressured. COOL THUNDER has been on the shelf since December shipping up from Mountaineer for new trainer Biehler.

2 1 mile, 70 yards. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Scrabblecat (Butler, Rhone)123/10-1

2: Aliannie (Shaw, Rhodes)123/15-1

3: Alphabets Tuff Gal (Stevens, Porter)123/6-1

4: Miss Terina (Keith, Biehler)123/6-1

5: Sweet Teri K (A. Canchari, Berndt)118/3-1

6: Sikura’s Gift (Ocampo, Lund)123/6-1

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

8: Crimson Bird (Shino, House)123/8-1

9: Two Bayme (Rivera, Porter)123/6-1

SWEET TERI K has good early speed to take the lead if so chooses but doesn’t need it; should enjoy running against rivals on her level after fading badly last out versus tougher. OKRA WIND FREE drew clear of field last out with winning margin of six lengths for consecutive victories who looms the off-the-pace logical threat. TWO BAYME jumps off the turf while facing tougher last out who too will be closing late and is a major player if ready.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Khaled Again (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/6-1

2: Bien Bon (Butler, Scherer)119/12-1

3: John Galt (Bell, Lund)123/5-1

4: Salt Lake Flyer (Ocampo, Hanson)119/6-1

5: Model Citizen (Escobar, Suter)119/7-2

6: Waffle House Kid (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)119/4-1

7: Unusual Mystery (Franco, Silva)123/12-1

8: Bandini Moon (Martin, House)119/10-1

9: Policio (Rivera, Mankin)123/6-1

KHALED AGAIN should get ground-saving trip on the rail. Earned his diploma last out running longer and digging in stubbornly for the win. MODEL CITIZEN will be the one to catch; enters with back-to-back place efforts; could be good key for place honors in your exacta/trifecta tickets. WAFFLE HOUSE KID usually gets in the money gimmicks closing from mid-pack.

4 About 7½ furlongs. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $16,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Befuddler (Butler, Bravo)119/6-1

2: Grace of Greatness (Franco, Robertson)119/5-1

3: Moonshine Promise (A. Canchari, Rarick)119/12-1

4: Visual Blessing (Martin, Bolinger)119/8-1

5: Mundy (Rivera, Brinson)119/4-1

6: Sixtysix Margaux (Stevens, Chambers)121/5-1

7: Terice (Goodwin, Kirby)119/12-1

8: Sera’s Tunnel (Bell, Asmussen)119/9-2

9: Perfect Fashion (Eikleberry, Donlin)119/6-1

10: Intercompany Loan (Velazquez, Scherer)119/12-1

11: Sasha’s Fierce (Stevens, Brueggemann)119/8-1

Final Jeopardy of the Pick 4 sequence is a wide-open affair. SIXTYSIX MARGAUX returns to the lawn after a three-year hiatus, but for a trainer who excels across the board in all these angle factors; impressive work tab including two bullet drills. SERA’S TUNNEL likes to sit off the pace before pouncing. Got up for second last out; gets positive jockey switch to Bell. BEFUDDLER, GRACE OF GREATNESS and MOONSHINE PROMISE are expected to be in the hunt down the stretch.

5 6½ furlongs. State-bred. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $12,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Gold Country Cat (Bell, Van Winkle)123/15-1

2: Mr. Bubba Cat (Stevens, Porter)123/4-1

3: Aurorin Shot (Keith, Johnson)123/20-1

4: Perfect Ablation (Velazquez, Scherer)123/8-1

5: Erv the Banker (Martin, Rengstorf)123/10-1

6: Eurasian (Hernandez, Oliver)118/8-1

7: Ghost Skier (Butler, Bravo)123/5-1

8: Good Guy Larry (Eikleberry, Scherbenske)123/7-2

9: Our Family Affair (A. Canchari, Oliver)123/9-2

10: Willow Parish (Shino, McFadden)123/20-1

GOOD GUY LARRY has finished ahead of many of today’s rivals one time or another and is exiting a couple of place finishes with minor traffic problems; clean trip makes him tough today. MR. BUBBA CAT will dictate the pace up front; should be plenty fit coming off a month rest period. PERFECT ABLATION drops in class from allowance race who might of found ideal field for late closing kick.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Le Chot Jolie (Ochoa, Riecken)123/8-1

2: Sweet Ole Somerset (A. Canchari, Donlin)123/12-1

3: Depeche (Rivera, Oliver)123/8-1

4: Hannahslittleangel (Eikleberry, Anderson)123/5-1

5: Magicallytown (Canchari, Martinez)123/30-1

6: Valari (Butler, Bends)123/7-2

7: All Bets Are Off (Hernandez, Rengstorf)118/6-1

8: Rita’s Cheetah (Keith, Biehler)123/10-1

9: Safe N Rich (Martin, Litfin)123/5-2

SAFE N RICH broke alertly and had brief lead before being out-dueled and settling for place honors; should sit behind inside speed coming from outside post before final threatening move in takeover. LE CHOT JOLIE finished lengths behind top pick to grab third improving a great deal from previous start. ALL BETS ARE OFF could enjoy the slight drop in class; does have early speed but is an unreliable wager.

7 6 furlongs. State-bred. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Supremo Struckgold (Rivera, Scherer)123/7-2

2: Cheap Chocolate (Stevens, McShane)123/12-1

3: Tenpin Strike (Ocampo, Robertson)123/8-1

4: Let Da Cowboy Rock (A. Canchari, Donlin)119/8-1

5: Prairie Appeal (Keith, Danger)123/5-1

6: Mr Grand Rapids (Hernandez, Rengstorf)114/15-1

7: Rocket Wrench (Escobar, Rhone)123/10-1

8: Run Away Indian (Martin, Bethke)119/8-1

9: Great River Skier (Butler, Bravo)119/6-1

10: Traffic Skier (Velazquez, Silva)123/15-1

11: Bold Raider (Goodwin, Cole)123/15-1

12: Dalbo (Shaw, Berg)119/20-1

SUPREMO STRUCKGOLD plunges in class from allowance races and back to lower claiming level where he started the season. Should get ground saving stalking trip off the rail with expected heated duel up front. RUN AWAY INDIAN and GREAT RIVER SKIER will be Leonard vs. Duran up front with one or both saying “No Mas.” LET DA COWBOY ROCK drops to lowest level of his career.

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

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sunset Kid (Swiontek, McFadden)118/20-1

2: Mr. Tango (A. Canchari, Wolff)123/8-1

3: General Lafayette (Eikleberry, Cole)123/15-1

4: Geocache (Velazquez, Pfeifer)123/4-1

5: Justa Average Joe (Ocampo, Brueggemann)123/6-1

6: Victory Check (Delorme, Oliver)123/5-1

7: Barraaq (Keith, Biehler)123/9-2

8: Carnival Candyman (Martin, Lund)123/2-1

BARAAQ is a well rested gelding who last raced at Oaklawn in March and now enters with encouraging work tab for trainer Biehler; well bred to handle today’s distance on the return. CARNIVAL CANDYMAN has dueled last two out in three headed battles up front holding on for minor awards; slight concern of weakening after those two all out efforts. GEOCACHE gained on Carnival Candyman last race closing from far back to get up for third.
