  • Updated: May 30, 2014 - 11:54 PM

Post time: 12:45 p.m. Best bet: Megastar (5th race). Best play: 50-cent Pick 4, Race 2, (All/All/3,4/1), $42.00.

1 350 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $9,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Carpe Diem Drew (Eikleberry, Charette-Hill)124/5-2

2: Engine Number Nine (Luark, Olmstead)124/3-1

3: Mafoosa (Goodwin, Clay)124/7-2

4: Dashin Thru the Oaks (Swiontek, Livingston)124/6-1

5: Little Bit Brandy (Olesiak, Johnson)124/6-1

6: Furys Folly (Suarez Ricardo, Hardy)124/4-1

CARP DIEM DREW comes off a sharp win leading from the gate and dueling to the end. MAFOOSA lost the bob and landed in the second spot in career-best effort. LITTLE BIT BRANDY has a couple of solid works off the eight-month layoff.

2 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $12,500. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sudden Tempest (Olesiak, Sheehan)118/5-2

2: Limefuhr (Hernandez, Wiley)118/6-1

3: Play N Truth (Escobar, Rhone)123/4-1

4: F C Lifestyle (Shepherd, Offolter)123/3-1

5: Victoria’s Delight (Hamilton, Padilla)118/6-1

6: Prairie Lake (Butler, Donlin)123/7-2

PRAIRIE LAKE faced much better last year and enters today with a strong series of works after nine-month hiatus; could have found the perfect group to start the summer. SUDDEN TEMPEST attempts two turns for first time and will be the rabbit to catch starting from the pine. VICTORIA’S DELIGHT drops in class stretching out in third start, should enjoy softer field.

3 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Tenth Power (Olesiak, Gaede)123/4-1

2: Mischief Mo (Hernandez, Pfeifer)123/15-1

3: Go to the Pulpit (Velazquez, Silva)123/9-2

4: Setnmupknocknmdown (Eikleberry, Donlin)123/3-1

5: Northern Choice (Canchari, Martinez)123/5-1

6: Geocache (Castro, Pfeifer)123/4-1

7: Samendra (Martinez, Martinez)123/9-2

SETNMUPKNOCKNMDOWN dueled all the way last out before losing lead and holding on for place honors. Could be tough to beat if finds himself alone on the lead. GEOCACHE chased our top pick in holding pattern and deserves another chance to reel in the pace-setter. SAMENDRA will be seeking third straight win rolling late as the race unfolds.

4 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. Allowance. Purse: $35,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Silver Somerset (Eikleberry, Donlin)121/7-2

2: Royal Bluff (Dieguez, Pfeifer)121/5-1

3: Blumin Sweetheart (Shepherd, Robertson)117/9-5

4: Cat Sister (Canchari, Robertson)117/5-2

5: Amazingly Karen (Trimble, Berg)121/8-1

6: Top Vow (Rivera, Van Winkle)121/10-1

Robertson sends out the top two choices with CAT SISTER and BLUMIN SWEETHEART; expect them to be a tough duo to beat. Give Cat Sister the nod for the better price and lone start last year was in gate-to-wire fashion. AMAZINGLY KAREN was mugged and pinned at the start in the Lady Slipper Stakes, deserves another chance facing softer.

5 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $22,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Megastar (Carreno, Diodoro)119/5-2

2: Floor Money (Martin, Troche)119/6-1

3: Oughterson (Butler, Biehler)119/9-2

4: Casa de Cambio (Martinez, Van Winkle)119/4-1

5: Threefiftysevenmag (Canchari, Berndt)119/6-1

6: Keep Me Posted (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)119/6-1

7: F C Gomango (Hamilton, Offolter)119/9-2

MEGASTAR is strictly the one to beat as the favorite with speed numbers towering the field. Look for the crafty veteran to be closing from far back. OUGHTERSON might decide to get brave with Butler aboard and try to steal the race up front with no real pacesetter in the group. KEEP ME POSTED and THREEFIFTYSEVENMAG are logical choices on exotic tickets.

6 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. Maiden special weight. Purse: $31,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Reggae Runner (Canchari, Oliver)119/12-1

2: Tahkodha Belle (Goodwin, McFadden)123/15-1

3: Stellabrini (Eikleberry, Donlin)119/10-1

4: Lil Mighty Mo (Dieguez, Pfeifer)119/15-1

5: Kato Miss (Lopez, Hanson)119/7-2

6: One Won Eleven (Castro, Peters)119/20-1

7: No Rain (Keith, Biehler)119/10-1

8: Colette’s Secret (Martin, Wolochuk)123/15-1

9: Shadow Ridge (Stevens, Rhone)119/5-1

10: Crypto Sky (Martinez, Van Winkle)123/20-1

11: Melissa’s Shadow (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/6-1

12: Kati Can (Hamilton, Padilla)123/4-1

13:Mimi’s Obsession (Butler, Rengstorf)123/6-1

14: Crimsonexpectation (Hernandez, Rengstorf)123/12-1

SHADOW RIDGE should get perfect set-up to picking off her rivals late in field loaded with speed; should enjoy extra half-furlong after running third last out at 5½. KATO MISS showed early speed last out under steady urging from jockey Lopez for second best and expect the same today. MIMI’S OBSESSION will be a tough foe pressing the pace if gets in from the also-entered list.

7 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $28,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Frazier’s Pegasus (Hamilton, Scherer)117/6-1

2: Aaron’s Belt (Castro, Weir)121/5-1

3: Ghoststone (Eikleberry, McFarlane)121/12-1

4: Earl’s Girl (Martinez, Lund)121/10-1

5: Cotton Club Cutie (Martin, Scherer)121/7-2

6: Grace of Greatness (Canchari, Robertson)121/9-2

7: A Fitzing Reward (Butler, Bravo)121/12-1

8: Spinning Steel (Carreno, Oliver)117/12-1

9: Sweet Tango (Stevens, Robertson)121/6-1

10: Emma Lea’s Song (Keith, Biehler)117/10-1

COTTON CLUB CUTIE has ability to be on or near the lead and might choose to sit off today for first attack, letting other speedsters take over. Stablemate FRAZIER’S PEGASUS faced much tougher at Gulfstream last out on the turf and could get perfect ground-saving trip from the rail with anticipated quick tempo. GRACE OF GREATNESS will be up front and possibly one to catch out of the Robertson barn.

8 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $25,000. Purse: $30,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Yonaguska Boy (Eikleberry, Offolter)121/6-1

2: Homerun Berti (Martinez, Hop)119/9-5

3: Tribal Dreams (Olesiak, Walker)119/12-1

4: Janis’s Joy (Butler, Heitzmann)114/5-1

5: La Mano Nera (Stevens, Diodoro)119/3-1

6: Gita’s Mahal (Velazquez, De la cerda)119/6-1

7: Captains Cat (Shepherd, Rarick)123/8-1

LA MANO NERA is well rested, training solid, and should enjoy stepping down from stakes race. HOMERUN BERTI gets nice inside draw and too will be pressing the pace and is deserving favorite with class edge. YONGAGUSKA comes off a impressive four-length win and could impress once again but against tougher competition.

9 5½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. Maiden claiming $10,000. Purse: $12,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Texas Bet (Keith, Hanson)123/5-1

2: Temporary High (Escobar, Danger)123/15-1

3: Gents Little Lady (Goodwin, Bethke)119/3-1

4: Dynamaria (Castro, Silva)123/15-1

5: Mattie’s Vow (Canchari, Robertson)123/9-2

6: Stash N Dash (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/8-1

7: Sophie’s Cupcake (Martinez, Rengstorf)119/6-1

8: Half Our Song (Velazquez, Bethke)119/15-1

9: Asfarashonorgoes (Hernandez, Wiley)123/12-1

10: Appealing Dancer (Butler, Bravo)123/5-1

MATTIE’S VOW plunges in class, which could do the trick in wide-open nightcap. SOPHIE’S CUPCAKE too gets a softer field but will need better gate start to get going early. GENTS LITTLE LADY and APPEALING DANCER are must-use battlers.
