#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Powers Ofthe Court (Goodwin, Brueggemann)119/2-1

2: Vini Vidi Vinci (Martin, Sweere)119/6-1

3: Cachemassa Creek (Butler, Donlin)119/5-2

4: Third Rail (Stevens, Chambers)119/8-1

5: Double Jump (Shepherd, Turco)119/7-2

6: Geocache (Velazquez, Pfeifer)119/9-2

POWERS OFTHE COURT has good tactical speed and appears the one to beat coming off impressive win and improving each race this summer. GEOCACHE led throughout to victory last effort and will be to the one to catch as lone pace-setter. THIRD RAIL and DOUBLE JUMP will be making late bids and are must use on tickets.

Race 2: 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Wyo Girl (Ocampo, Anderson)119/4-1

2: Box Office Appeal (Butler, Riecken)119/9-2

3: Contact (Hernandez, McFarlane)118/7-2

4: Demidoff’s Destiny (Shaw, Rampadarat)119/12-1

5: Scorned Woman (Goodwin, Scherer)123/8-1

6: C Indygo (Shino, Rhodes)119/20-1

7: The Grans (Escobar, Lund)123/5-2

8: Sweet n’ Petite (Barton, Lund)119/6-1

THE GRANS ran second best last out on the dirt to next-out winner; should sit off the pace, but slight concern with expected snail pace fractions. CONTACT could be pace-setter with no true frontrunner in the group. WYO GIRL has nice rail position to fire out and press the frontrunner; weakened last out against a few of today’s foes.

Race 3: 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $25,000. Purse: $29,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Lady Haddassah (Keith, Biehler)119/9-5

2: Jeffell (Ocampo, McShane)119/12-1

3: Vertical Lift (Butler, Rhone)123/5-2

4: Glee (GB) (Stevens, Chambers)119/9-2

5: Fleet Dyna (Martin, McKenzie)119/3-1

6: Roses Plus (Barton, Tracy)121/8-1

VERTICAL LIFT has strong chance of setting moderate fractions controlling the speed as she did last out in gate-to-wire win. LADY HADDASSAH is strictly the one to beat with class experience and inside draw for ground-saving trip in closing. FLEET DYNA and GLEE are strong contenders for mild upset.

Race 4: 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $7,500. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Two Chance (Shino, Kirby)119/10-1

2: Smokin Autism (Velazquez, Backhaus)119/20-1

3: Breaking Barriers (Butler, Rhone)123/10-1

4: Ideal Asscher Cut (Keith, McShane)123/6-1

5: Run Trevor Run (Swiontek, Venner)118/20-1

6: Sonny Money (Barton, Silva)119/4-1

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

8: Grand and Regal (Stevens, Van Winkle)123/7-2

9: Gloriousdemmi (Shaw, Rampadarat)119/15-1

10: Bold Advantage (Rivera, Kane)123/3-1

11: Hall of Justice (Hernandez, Fauchald)118/12-1

12: Call Me Zorro (Canchari, Bethke)119/20-1

BOLD ADVANTAGE draws tough outside post but gets slight nod on the sharp drop in class with good early speed. GRAND REGAL might be a good key in your exotic wagers for place honors where he has landed in last four outings. SONNY MONEY has been consistent finishing behind Grand and Regal but might enjoy added half-furlong today with late close.

Race 5: 1 mile 70 yards. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $20,000. Purse: $14,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bonita Mokana (Shino, Ibarra)123/30-1

2: Velvet Kay (Ochoa, Berndt)119/5-1

3: Miss Taylor K (Goodwin, Kirby)119/12-1

4: Sismonceo (Ocampo, Sheehan)119/5-2

5: Antique Angel (Shepherd, Van Winkle)119/20-1

6: Dabblin N Cocoa (Martin, Scherer)119/3-1

7: Lilly Kisses (Hernandez, Ibarra)114/20-1

8: Unbridled’s Celtic (Swiontek, Weir)118/15-1

9: Andrea’s Josie (Rivera, McKinley)123/8-1

10: Runthespellcheque (Keith, Donlin)123/15-1

11: Desert Ballad (Escobar, Rhone)123/20-1

12: Corporate Comet (Butler, Rhone)123/6-1

DABBLIN N COCOA gathered up the pieces late last out to get up for show in turf debut; room for development to move forward. CORPORATE COMET has to deal with far outside post and must avoid getting hung out on first turn; has enough early speed to shoot to the front. SISMONECO appears to be pace setter after exiting race where filly led field before getting nipped at the wire. Must use A THOUSAND TALENTS and DARING RIDE if get in from also-entered list.

Race 6: 6½ furlongs. State bred. 3-year-olds and up. Fillies and mares. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Lady of the Castle (Canchari, Bethke)123/8-1

2: Love for Lori (Shaw, Smith)123/15-1

3: Lady’s Edition (Shino, Pfeifer)123/10-1

4: Cinder Ellie (Hernandez, Oliver)118/20-1

5: Caring Karen (Trimble, Berg)119/12-1

6: Final Moment (Stevens, Rhone)123/4-1

7: Gaelic Pride (Rivera, McKinley)123/12-1

8: Molly McCracken (Shepherd, Wolff)123/7-2

9: Edgy Blue (Escobar, Rhone)123/15-1

10: Souper Four (Butler, Donlin)123/6-1

11: Hoodwinked Holly (Swiontek, McFadden)118/9-2

Deep field to start the Late Pick 4. FINAL MOMENT should enjoy the class and distance relief coming off the turf for the Rhone barn. MOLLY McCRACKEN too drops in level and will give one late run, usually gets a share. LADY OF THE CASTLE faded badly in first race after one-year hiatus; encouraging to see hot jockey Canchari hopping aboard today.

Race 7: 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $14,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Hurricane Houston (Canchari, Porter)123/4-1

2: Jix (Shino, Pfeifer)119/15-1

3: Barraaq (Keith, Biehler)119/12-1

4: Beat Your Bluff (Butler, Rhone)123/5-2

5: Hype (Rhone, Arterburn)119/8-1

6: Baton On Fire (Stevens, Rhone)119/6-1

7: Chisenau (Rivera, Silva)119/7-2

8: Magnet Cove (Martin, Hemba)119/10-1

9: Willie Prevail (Barton, Lund)119/15-1

HURRICANE HOUSTON won last out closing fast on the rail against tougher where he starts the tour today. BEAT YOUR BLUFF won last out hanging around the front before taking over; likely pace-setter today with Butler remaining at the helm. CHISNENAU will be logical late closing threat. MAGNET COVE has three wins in last four starts at Prairie Meadows on the dirt; could prove tough on surface switch.

Race 8: 6 furlongs. State bred. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $32,400.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Jantzesfancyfriend (Rivera, Van Winkle)117/8-1

2: Ceeya Tuesday (Keith, McShane)121/9-2

3: Sheer Trick (Hernandez, Brinson)116/4-1

4: L G Suprem (Butler, Fauchald)123/12-1

5: Demis Nativedancer (Ocampo, Bethke)123/10-1

6: Lookin At Larry (Martin, Kane)121/5-2

7: Command the Land (Goodwin, Brinson)117/2-1

COMMAND THE LAND gets nice outside post for stalking trip with loaded inside speed; ran second last out after month and a half layoff. LOOKIN AT LARRY comes off failed turf experiment and back to sprinting on the dirt where he won three back drawing clear. Look for CEEYA TUESDAY to lead the field as far as he can with Lori Keith as the pilot.

Race 9: 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $12,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Shadow Edge (Shepherd, Kirby)123/20-1

2: T. Thomas (Butler, Rengstorf)123/12-1

3: Stalking Lion (Barton, Chambers)123/4-1

4: Fortune Afar (Goodwin, Brueggemann)123/5-2

5: Syd Licious (Canchari, McShane)123/10-1

6: Robbie’s Express (Martin, Bends)123/7-2

7: Scorsese (Escobar, Brueggemann)123/9-5

8: Timber Hills (Arroyo, Sheehan)123/20-1

SCORSESE should be able to dictate pace at reasonable fractions as lone speed; had consecutive wins before getting outfinished at the wire last out. Stablemate FORTUNE AFAR will be right behind pressing the pace as the major threat and usually gets a share. STALKING LION returns to the dirt after four turf runnings where she digressed along the way after winning back in June.
