1: Ghazablanca (Ocampo, McKinley)123/15-1

2: Fair Trade (Hernandez, Rengstorf)118/4-1

3: Mr. Montagu (Barton, Donlin)118/15-1

4: Benjur (Velazquez, Scherer)118/8-1

5: Tizn’t Over (Butler, Scherer)118/8-1

6: Takethisdemmi (Garnett, El Deeb)118/20-1

7: Kipson (Shepherd, Scherbenske)123/7-2

8: Russian Dancer (A. Canchari, Robertson)118/3-1

9: Demis Lil’ Star (Escobar, El Deeb)123/15-1

10: Runaway Cal (Stevens, Schnell)123/5-1

RUSSIAN DANCER was a well-bet disappointing favorite in his Canterbury debut shipping up from Arlington last month. Should expect better today with a couple of works since. FAIR TRADE has given a game effort in lone two turf starts this summer with show and place ribbons. Should make late running bid. RUNAWAY CAL will make late charge for new trainer and lures Stevens to ride tonight.

2 About 1 mile, 70 yards. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $27,000.

2: Aaron’s Belt (Martin, Weir)123/12-1

3: Talk About Me (Ocampo, Brinson)123/12-1

6: Enlightened (Escobar, Lund)123/9-2

11: Waves of Light (Keith, Biehler)118/10-1

12: Grace of Greatness (A. Canchari, Robertson)123/5-1

13: A Thousand Talents (Barton, Kirby)123/20-1

14: My Dixie Doodle (Velazquez, Scherer)123/8-1

Wide-open turf race screams price runner running late. DEAR FAY is coming off a six-wide driving win and should get ground-saving inside trip if avoids traffic congestion. GO GO JILL is the class of the field and is having a terrific meet on the turf, but cause for concern is getting hung out early starting from the 10 hole. OF ROYALTY, ENLIGHTENED and GRACE OF GREATNESS are major players.

3 6½ furlongs. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $7,500. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Chief Engineer (Aguilar, Venner)123/20-1

2: Ghazi’s Patch Work (Olesiak, Litfin)123/30-1

3: Gloriousdemmi (Escobar, El Deeb)119/20-1

4: Sonny Money (Barton, Silva)119/4-1

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

6: Ideal Asscher Cut (A. Canchari, McShane)123/10-1

7: Two Chance (Shino, Kirby)119/10-1

8: Hall of Justice (Hernandez, Fauchald)118/6-1

10: Cyclone Canyon (Keith, Biehler)123/5-1

11: Luxury and Glitter (P. Canchari, Sweere)123/8-1

12: Rapid Business (Butler, Scherer)123/10-1

BOLD ADVANTAGE and LUXURY AND GLITTER drop in from maiden special weight, but give slight nod to Bold Advantage, who lands the better post position with early speed from the get-go. SONNY MONEY and HALL OF JUSTICE get my second-tier votes running late and letting the speedsters do the dirty work up front.

4 6½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $32,400.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Molly McCracken (Shepherd, Wolff)123/10-1

2: Final Moment (Ocampo, Rhone)123/15-1

3: Dear Hrishi (Barton, Van Winkle)123/6-1

4: B J’s Angel (Butler, Scherer)119/7-2

5: Holly in April (A. Canchari, Robertson)123/9-2

6: Only Annie Peach (Stevens, Scherbenske)123/8-1

7: Tapitintime (Keith, McShane)123/10-1

8: Adorkable (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/12-1

9: Blues Edge (Escobar, Rhone)123/2-1

BLUES EDGE should be a handful coming off career-best speed figure out of the Distaff Classic second-place finish. Versatile enough to perhaps be forwardly placed and still be dangerous. ONLY ANNIE PEACH is the one to catch, coming off a nine-length gate-to-wire victory. B J’S ANGEL and HOLLY IN APRIL should fight for minor awards.

5 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse: $12,000.

1: Peaks of Legend (Shepherd, Hemba)121/15-1

2: Ask Eddy (Hernandez, Brinson)114/12-1

3: Geocache (Shino, Pfeifer)119/12-1

4: Jack and Max (Velazquez, Scherer)119/15-1

5: Don’t Bluff (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/5-2

6: Joshua’s Journey (Escobar, Lund)119/12-1

7: Seeking the Reward (Ocampo, Rengstorf)123/20-1

8: Awesome Year (Barton, Van Winkle)123/2-1

9: Magnet Cove (Martin, Hemba)121/5-1

10: Syd Licious (Butler, McShane)123/6-1

AWESOME YEAR has finished first in all four starts on the dirt while having a super meet. Gets my stamp of approval once again today. DON’T BLUFF jumps off the turf on the drop in class and is a versatile gelding who could push the pace or sit far back before making his final surge. SYD LICIOUS won in hand last out in first attempt at two turns this year.

6 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Victory Sled (Goodwin, Riecken)123/15-1

2: Gadzooks (Barton, Silva)119/15-1

3: Dreaming of Dusty (Shino, Anderson)123/20-1

4: In Jeopardy (Ocampo, Rhone)123/9-2

6: Greeley’s Legend (Trimble, McFarlane)119/12-1

7: C J Mamas Boy (Shepherd, Robertson)123/6-1

10: Look West (Keith, Bethke)123/8-1

11: Hola Wild Cat (Escobar, Sheehan)119/8-1

12: August Day (A. Canchari, Scherbenske)123/15-1

13: Quote to Cash (Hernandez, Robertson)118/10-1

HOLA WILD CAT could get a nice stalking trip with all the early speed in the race. Won last out taking over at halfway mark with quick fractions. IN JEOPARDY is all speed and won last effort clashing up front but never losing the lead to the wire. UNLAWFUL DETAINER will keep In Jeopardy company but will have to toughen up to get win.

7 5½ furlongs. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $25,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Ya Mon (Shaw, Perez)118/15-1

2: Bint Julep (Ocampo, Anderson)118/9-2

3: Cavour (Garnett, McFarlane)118/12-1

4: Rockin Home (Rivera, Van Winkle)118/6-1

5: Time for Alex (Trimble, Perez)118/15-1

6: Mass and Energy (Escobar, Turco)118/8-1

7: Rodriguez (Shepherd, Berndt)118/2-1

8: At My Discretion (A. Canchari, Lund)118/4-1

9: Prince Richard (Hernandez, Tracy)113/10-1

10: Desired Storm (Barton, Anderson)115/20-1

RODRIGUEZ has hit the board in both starts and looks like the one to catch; could be possible lone speed. BINT JULEP and AT MY DISCRETION are returning starters who should keep the pace honest.

8 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $12,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: My Mandy Girl (Martin, Rhone)123/20-1

2: Diamond City (P. Canchari, L. Canchari)123/20-1

3: Terice (Shino, Kirby)123/2-1

4: Codys Cupcake (Barton, Anderson)119/10-1

5: Chile Win (Shepherd, Miller)123/15-1

6: Cherryful Lady (A. Canchari, L. Canchari)123/8-1

7: Speakers Action (Keith, Van Winkle)123/4-1

8: Most Darling (Olesiak, Wekseth)123/7-2

9: What a Score (Escobar, Lund)123/5-1

TERICE is the logical closing threat after exiting a second-best honor flying from the clouds and finishing two lengths behind to next out winner. MOST DARLING has good early speed and should show early initiative; slight concern is best race was local debut in June. DIAMOND CITY takes steep drop in class off the lawn, could surprise with the surface switch.

9 6½ furlongs. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $10,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Ceeya Tuesday (Keith, McShane)123/3-1

2: Manlee Spirit (Olesiak, Peters)123/6-1

3: Bold Raider (Escobar, Cole)123/20-1

4: Lookin At Larry (A. Canchari, Kane)123/5-2

5: Casino Charley (Swiontek, McFadden)118/20-1

6: R U Joshin Me (Ocampo, Rengstorf)119/9-2

7: L G Suprem (Butler, Fauchald)123/5-1

8: Cheap Chocolate (Velazquez, Kane)123/12-1

9: Prairie Appeal (Martin, Danger)123/8-1

L G SUPREM should have decent enough speed up front to make his customary late charge from far back. Has made money in five of seven starts this season. CEEYA TUESDAY is all speed and has ideal spot on the rail, but huge concern of weakening in past five races. R U JOSHIN ME ran for silver medal last out after pressing pace throughout as the favorite.
