7: Okeys Odysey (P. Canchari, Fennell)124/8-1

8: Six Figure Dynasty (Suarez Ricardo, Flores)126/8-1

GOOD EYE plunges in price for trainer and jockey team that have been lighting up the board this meet. IRISH BREW exits a doomed start last out and should improve if breaks alertly. DASHIN THRU THE OAKS and CALL ME SPOT also come off contaminated beginnings.

2 330 yards. 2-year-olds. Maiden. Purse: $11,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Cartels Secret (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/15-1

2: Your Just Jesse (Olesiak, Johnson)122/8-1

3: Ms Jess N Alibi (Luark, Fennell)122/12-1

4: Xo Wagon (Torres, Charette-Hill)122/5-2

9: Flyin Lizard (Vazquez, Hardy)122/4-1

10: Twister On the Run (Goodwin, Charette-Hill)122/6-1

XO WAGON ran second last out with clean trip on the muddy track. FLYIN LIZARD lacked a late bid in lone start and looks to take a step forward second out. TWISTER ON THE RUN and RUNNING IVORY are must use in this wide-open race.

3 5 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Just Have’n Fun (Eikleberry, Wolochuk)121/5-2

2: Rome (Martinez, Martinez)119/9-2

3: Platinum Rules (Ordaz, Silva)119/4-1

4: Tanabata (Shepherd, Hawley)121/3-1

5: River Belle (Keith, Hop)119/6-1

6: Husker (Henson, Walker)119/5-1

JUST HAVE’N FUN will most likely show early initiative off the rail with Eikleberry aboard; was pinned inside last out, so draw line through that race. ROME will press the pace to the outside of our top choice; showed short-term speed on muddy track last out before fading. TANABATA will challenge up front coming off gate-to-wire victory.

4 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $20,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Runaway Cal (Carreno, Chambers)123/8-1

2: Kipson (A. Canchari, Scherbenske)123/5-1

3: Noah and O (Shepherd, Padilla)123/8-1

4: Brenda’s Bar (Stevens, Diodoro)123/6-1

5: To the Stars (Escobar, Brinson)123/8-1

6: Wild by Nature (Eikleberry, Green)123/8-1

7: Mancala (Hernandez, McFarlane)123/10-1

8: Runandyrun (Velazquez, Shaw)123/9-2

9: Why Frank (Rivera, Oliver)123/4-1

10: Francis Henry (Goodwin, McKinley)123/40-1

11: Lenapah (Martinez, Ritter)123/20-1

BRENDA’S BAR will get perfect pace scenario with closing middle move in field loaded with speed. RUNAWAY CAL won last out, circling the field starting from far back. MANCALA will be pursued by many as most likely frontrunner; shipped up from Turf Paradise with two-month rest. KIPSON and WHY FRANK are major players and must use on the ticket.

5 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $14,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sis Boom Bah (Shepherd, Cole)119/15-1

2: Moonshine Promise (Dieguez, Rarick)121/5-1

3: Ciao Valentina (Castro, Pfeifer)119/12-1

4: Acarpian (Stevens, Diodoro)119/9-2

5: Terice (A. Canchari, Litfin)119/3-1

8: Laura Beasley (Ordaz, McFarlane)119/6-1

9: Three Cuties (P. Canchari, Holder)119/15-1

10: Lila Grace (Eikleberry, Biehler)119/12-1

TERICE ran career best last out, giving her back-to back wins flying from the clouds; should enjoy added distance tonight. BERT’SLITTLESISTER could score at a price if able to set moderate fractions as the pacesetter with Butler aboard. ACARPIAN looks to improve on class relief after dull effort last out.

6 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Farmers Wife (Stevens, Chambers)123/5-1

2: Hawkeye Honey (Butler, Bravo)123/5-2

3: Chile Win (Luark, Miller)123/9-2

4: Bonita Rita (Castro, Berndt)123/4-1

5: Molly McCracken (Velazquez, Wolff)123/6-1

6: Spinning Slew (Escobar, Cole)123/12-1

7: Miss Taylor K (Goodwin, Kirby)123/5-1

BONITA RITA lands in new barn off the claim and will be controlling the speed up front invading from Arlington Park. HAWKEYE HONEY looms large closing threat coming off a place landing while rallying wide; positive to see Butler remaining as the pilot. FARMERS WIFE showed little in tough assignment last out against much tougher.

7 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Lucky Eight (Carreno, Diodoro)119/1-1

2: April Foolee (Olesiak, Turco)123/12-1

3: Royal Clover (Goodwin, McFadden)119/30-1

11: Zeta Zody (Keith, Biehler)119/8-1

12: Seafarer (Hernandez, McFarlane)123/20-1

13: War Memories (Escobar, Rengstorf)119/30-1

14: Sweet G (Butler, Donlin)119/10-1

15: Class of Twentyten (Martinez, Rengstorf)123/20-1

Have to go with the favorite LUCKY EIGHT, coming out of the leading trainer’s barn. Huge drop in class with decent numbers makes her the one to beat. ZETA ZODY, TILTED LADY and ONETA SUGAR get supporting roles for the minor awards.

8 6 furlongs. open. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Prairie Appeal (Keith, Danger)123/15-1

2: Orange Thunder (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/7-2

3: Northern Champ (Mosset, Robertson)118/4-1

4: Clever Endeaver (Shaw, Rarick)119/15-1

5: Stormy Ledger (Velazquez, Sweere)123/15-1

6: Sonny Money (Ordaz, Silva)123/9-2

7: Saviormoney (Rivera, Van Winkle)119/5-1

8: Dalbo (Goodwin, Berg)123/15-1

9: Sam’s Silver Star (Martinez, Rengstorf)119/3-1

ORANGE THUNDER steps down from allowance race after finishing early and has since been freshened up. Jockey switch to A Canchari could prove positive. Stablemate NORTHERN CHAMP showed late foot last two outings, getting hands in the show money. SAM’S SILVER STAR will be rolling late; won two back as the favorite.

9 5 1/2 furlongs. open. Allowance. Purse: $35,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Lookin At Larry (Eikleberry, Kane)121/9-2

2: Jantzesfancyfriend (Rivera, Van Winkle)121/10-1

3: Finlander (Velazquez, Sweere)123/8-1

4: R U Joshin Me (Martinez, Rengstorf)121/4-1

5: Great River Skier (Hamilton, Bravo)121/9-2

6: Tuff Grit (A. Canchari, Robertson)117/8-1

7: Shangrila Bar (Butler, Riecken)123/5-1

8: Demis Nativedancer (Castro, Flores)121/15-1

9: Bold Raider (Hernandez, Cole)121/10-1

10: Hes a Preacher (Olesiak, Wekseth)121/10-1

SHANGRILA BAR broke maiden last out, winning easily by over six lengths; repeat of that performance makes him tough to beat. R U JOSHIN ME enters off consecutive wins with good tactical speed. Expect pace to be frantic so might sit off the pace for first run at leaders. LOOKIN LARRY could shock if total pace meltdown occurs, gathering momentum with ground-saving trip off the rail.

10 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sunny Silver (Hernandez, Ibarra)123/10-1

2: Wild Luna (Shepherd, Turco)123/7-2

3: Criminal Elegance (Olesiak, Turco)123/4-1

6: Okra Wind Free (Escobar, Troche)123/6-1

7: Nokomis (Velazquez, Scherer)123/9-2

BOOT N IT stretches out after slipping through the inside and getting up for win last effort in short sprint. NOKOMIS takes the biggest drop in this closely matched seven-horse group, giving the veteran a slight edge. OKRA WIND FREE caught tiring opponents getting up for third at a huge price last out.
