Johnny Love's Sunday Canterbury Park line

  • Updated: August 24, 2013 - 7:32 PM

Post time: 1:30 p.m. Best bet: Holy Keoni (5th race). Best play: 50-cent Pick 4 (5th): 7/2,3,4,5,6,7,9/1,2,5,9,10,11/3,4,5,7, $84.00.

1 1 mile, 70 yards. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $12,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Intercompany Loan (Butler, Scherer)123/9-2

2: All Bets Off (Keith, McShane)123/4-1

3: Nokomis (Rivera, Scherer)123/7-2

4: Miss La Priss (Shepherd, Litfin)123/6-1

5: Neverrguwithrichie (Goodwin, Riecken)123/5-2

6: Number One Gal (Martin, House)123/4-1

NOKOMIS should enjoy stretching her legs out at today’s distance after some strong closing efforts sprinting; newly claimed barn having a solid season. NEVERRGUWITHRICHIE won last out edging clear as the favorite and could be lone front-runner with lack of group speed. NUMBER ONE GAL and INTERCOMPANY LOAN are must-use in this evenly matched opener.

2 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Mancala (Von Rosen, McFarlane)118/12-1

2: Dame Steely (Brown, Backhaus)123/20-1

3: Sal’z Romeo (Escobar, Troche)118/9-2

4: Schindlers Risk (Barton, Perez)123/15-1

5: Tell Em Off (Keith, McShane)118/4-1

6: Emmy Award Winning (Eikleberry, Silva)118/6-1

7: Horse Divine (Stevens, Jones)118/5-2

8: Doc Casey (Shino, Rhodes)123/12-1

9: Smart Masterpiece (P. Canchari, L. Canchari)123/5-1

HORSE DIVINE looks the best on paper but mild concern of running two turns for career first while claimed by new trainer on the scene; mixed feelings overall. SMART MASTERPIECE gained five wide late last out at a huge price to get second; speed-favoring pace would be a bonus. SAL’Z ROMEO could prove tough if not challenged up front.

3 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Starter optional claiming. Purse: $17,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Gallery of Storms (Keith, Spencer)121/6-1

2: Seven Tuff (Shepherd, Rarick)119/12-1

3: Careless Hunter (Escobar, Lund)119/4-1

4: Human Eraser (A. Canchari, Rarick)119/5-1

5: Ifoundmy Mojo (Butler, Spencer)121/3-1

6: Mogilny (Von Rosen, Hartman)121/4-1

7: Borealis Way (Eikleberry, Lund)123/7-2

BOREALIS WAY sat off the pace early last out before taking over the live heat, winning by three lengths; should get expected quick fractions once again. IFOUNDMY MOJO looks like a dangerous shipper from Prairie Meadows. Had consecutive win streak broken facing tougher rivals last out. CARELESS HUNTER is all speed and will fire to the front; should enjoy class relief.

4 1 mile, 70 yards. State-bred. Maiden claiming $7,500. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Demis Lil’ Star (Martin, Rampadarat)123/7-2

2: Rapid Business (Butler, Scherer)123/5-1

3: Stormy Ledger (Eikleberry, Lund)123/6-1

4: Cyclone Canyon (Keith, Biehler)123/8-1

5: Luxury and Glitter (P. Canchari, Sweere)123/3-1

6: Ghazi’s Patch Work (Arroyo, Litfin)123/20-1

7: Big Willo (Von Rosen, McFadden)123/20-1

8: Takethisdemmi (Shaw, Rampadarat)118/15-1

9: Ghazablanca (Ocampo, McKinley)123/4-1

DEMIS LIL’ STAR plunges in class with veteran jockey Martin aboard and looms as the off-the-pace threat with ground-saving rail trip. LUXURY AND GLITTER will be on or near the front throughout the race; exits a second-best effort after losing brief lead. STORMY LEDGER steps down in class after contaminated start with no rally.

5 5½ furlongs. State-bred. Maiden special weight. Purse: $30,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sam’s Silver Star (Ocampo, Rengstorf)118/15-1

2: Heartofdemi (Shaw, Rampadarat)118/15-1

3: A P the M V P (Keith, Biehler)118/12-1

4: Gottcha Silver (Shepherd, Johnson)118/6-1

5: Westenryder (Arroyo, Bethke)118/15-1

6: Macho Storm (P. Canchari, Bethke)118/12-1

7: Holy Keoni (A. Canchari, Robertson)118/3-1

8: Supremo’s Rebel (Goodwin, Kane)118/12-1

9: Saviormoney (Rivera, Van Winkle)118/7-2

10: Pennant Fever (Eikleberry, Hanson)118/5-1

11: Demis Tie (Von Rosen, Rampadarat)118/20-1

HOLY KEONI might have found the ideal field to start his career. Works look sharp and should be ready to roll. SAVIORMONEY seems the best of the returning veterans with good early speed; concern of weakening late in both starts. GOTTCHA SILVER got loose pre-start but still performed his duties only to tire late from pre-race activities.

6 About 11⁄16 miles. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Criminal Elegance (Goodwin, Kirby)118/8-1

2: De Novo (Keith, Biehler)118/7-2

3: Aaron’s Belt (Martin, Weir)123/6-1

4: Kissmeimdanish (Eikleberry, Lund)118/4-1

5: Theatre of Dreams (A. Canchari, Robertson)123/5-1

6: Stillwater Storm (Hernandez, Oliver)118/6-1

7: Enlightened (Escobar, Lund)123/9-2

8: Miss My Rosie (Ocampo, Robertson)118/8-1

KISSMEIMDANISH had tough assignment last out in stakes race and failed to respond. Won two back winning impressively in turf debut. DE NOVO could shake loose with simple fractions as lone pace-setter; consistent runner usually scores a share. AARON’S BELT has won past two closing from far back.

7 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Quote to Cash (Ocampo, Robertson)123/10-1

2: Seeking the Reward (Martin, Rengstorf)123/8-1

3: Band of Silence (Goodwin, Brueggemann)123/8-1

4: Yu Tiger Yu (Escobar, Ibarra)123/12-1

5: Show Off (Rivera, Silva)123/10-1

6: River Dance (Stevens, Rhone)123/15-1

7: Groomcatcher (P. Canchari, Spencer)123/10-1

8: Lucky Straw (Keith, Biehler)123/15-1

9: Jaco Red (Hernandez, McFarlane)118/5-1

10: August Day (Eikleberry, Scherbenske)123/6-1

11: Bandini’s Dream (Butler, Lund)123/9-2

12: Dreaming of Dusty (Shino, Anderson)123/12-1

13: Chunk (Arroyo, Donlin)123/20-1

14: Greeley’s Legend (Hernandez, McFarlane)113/6-1

15: A Little Edgy (Ocampo, Tracy)123/6-1

SEEKING THE REWARD should get decent pace to swoop on. BANDINI’S DREAM has good early speed as the favorite. QUOTE TO CASH drops in class.

8 About 7½ furlongs. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $19,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Mountain Kitty (Keith, Bravo)119/6-1

2: Pleasant Life (Ocampo, Hanson)123/6-1

3: Lady Ban Shee (Eikleberry, Lund)123/8-1

4: Of Royalty (Hernandez, McFarlane)114/5-1

5: My Dixie Doodle (Velazquez, Scherer)123/4-1

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

7: Thrice Nice (Butler, Rhone)123/7-2

8: Ciao Valentina (Shepherd, O’Callaghan)119/10-1

9: Feisty Flirt (Stevens, Green)123/6-1

THRICE NICE should get perfect set-up with loaded speed up front picking up the pieces; narrowly missed last out in dead heat for place honors. LADY BAN SHEE been facing tougher on the dirt at Prairie Meadows and could prove tough with surface switch; bred well for the lawn. OF ROYALTY and MY DIXIE DOODLE will be banging heads up front leading the field.
