#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

6: Waytogo Trish (P. Canchari, Holder)119/5-1

7: Vonn Nez (Stevens, Lund)119/5-1

TERICE shoots for her fourth consecutive win tonight for the CBY Racing Club. Likes to track the pace before putting the front runners away. WAYTOGO TRISH circled the field 8-wide last out with P Canchari aboard, getting up for the victory with perfect timing. RIDGEOFSTONE and HEATOFTHESTORM will be battling up front from the start, both come off convincing gate-to-wire wins.

4 7 1/2 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $28,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: The Grans (Carreno, Lund)121/8-1

4: Calculation (Eikleberry, Hartman)117/5-1

8: My Name’s Mud (Hernandez, McFarlane)117/12-1

9: A Fitzing Reward (Butler, Bravo)121/5-2

A FITZING REWARD has finished for place honors in all four efforts this summer meet, talented enough to get job done today with Butler remaining at the helm. THE GRANS could dictate the pace coming off the rail in field full of chasers. No response last out after starting the summer with two consecutive victories. AARON’S BELT will loom late closing threat flying late.

5 1 1/16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Stakes. Purse: $40,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Breezy Point (Velazquez, Scherer)118/10-1

3: Holiday Mischief (A. Canchari, Offolter)120/5-2

4: Az Ridge (Eikleberry, McFarlane)123/3-1

5: Evert (Rivera, Scherer)118/6-1

6: Quiet Man (Butler, Biehler)120/6-1

AZ RIDGE got the better of STACHYS in the sloppy Mystic Mile last month when taken off the turf. Like that trainer McFarlane has freshened him up with two nice works. Stachys is a talented battler who will be plenty fit in search of turning the table on his rival. HOLIDAY MISCHIEF ran career best triple digit speed figure last out in victory. Slight concern of a bounce.

6 5 1/2 furlongs. fillies and mares. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Echo Canyon (Smith, Johnson)119/6-1

2: Gaelic Pride (Arroyo, McKinley)123/20-1

3: Brooke Academy (Eikleberry, Miller)123/5-1

4: Kati Can (Stevens, Padilla)123/4-1

5: Rockin the Bleu’s (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/2-1

8: Royal Bluff (Butler, Pfeifer)123/8-1

9: G G’s Silent Siege (Bell, Robertson)123/10-1

10: Sophie’s Cupcake (Martinez, Rengstorf)119/12-1

ROCKIN THE BLEU’S drops in from allowance races after fading late last two efforts, class relief should do the job. KATI CAN won by 11 lengths as the pace setter last out drawing away convincingly. ECHO CANYON is all speed and will be sent to go as far as he can from the inside draw.

7 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Chile Win (Smith, Miller)123/5-1

2: Hidden Edge (Velazquez, Biehler)123/9-2

3: Desired Storm (Martinez, Anderson)118/7-2

4: Logan’s First Date (Keith, Bravo)118/5-1

5: Box Office Appeal (Butler, Riecken)123/3-1

6: City Kid (Escobar, Rhone)123/15-1

7: Corporate Comet (Stevens, Rhone)123/6-1

8: Julie S. (Bell, McKenzie)118/15-1

BOX OFFICE APPEAL should appreciate getting back to the longer distance after a couple of hum-drum efforts sprinting. Last win was at tonight’s distance. LOGAN’S FIRST DATE finished off the board last out after a couple convincing wins as the favorite. Talented enough to fire right back. DESIRED STORM ships up from Iowa who figures to be in the hunt.

8 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Stakes. Purse: $40,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Janis’s Joy (Butler, Heitzmann)118/5-1

2: Polar Plunge (Martin, Scherer)118/9-2

3: Talkin Bout (A. Canchari, Scherer)120/10-1

4: Challenging (Eikleberry, Hartman)118/8-1

5: Flower Spell (Homeister, Mason)120/2-1

6: Makinmymark (Stevens, Lund)118/5-1

7: Baetykaty (Carreno, Diodoro)120/4-1

FLOWER SPELL is the class of the field, including a couple of grade 3 races at Arlington Park. Love that regular jockey Homeister Jr came up to ride the race. JANI’S JOY keeps improving and exits a strong three-length victory with a strong closing kick. Training sharply coming in. BAETYKATY invades from out east as new acquisition for trainer Robertino Diodoro. MAKINMYMARK had a nice win against claimers last out but will need to step it up with this tough assignment.

9 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $12,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Krazy for Kugel (Eikleberry, Silva)123/2-1

2: Stillwater Storm (Keith, Oliver)123/3-1

3: Sunny Silver (Escobar, Ibarra)123/12-1

4: Lila Grace (Butler, Biehler)123/9-2

5: Sis Boom Bah (Shepherd, Cole)123/12-1

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

7: Hawkeye Honey (P. Canchari, Bravo)123/5-1

KRAZY FOR KRUGEL drew away convincingly two back at this distance while rallying five-wide in the process. Should get decent pace scenario to run at. STILLWATER STORM drops a notch after sub-par running on the lawn last out. Another deep closer who won two back at a mile and 70. LILA GRACE is a scrapper with slight class edge on the group. Started year with some nice wins at Oaklawn Park.

10 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Demidoff’s Destiny (P. Canchari, Flores)123/5-1

2: Demi’suptowngirl (Goodwin, Flores)123/12-1

3: Shut the Gate (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/4-1

4: Saka (Keith, Hanson)119/7-2

6: Sophia’s Night (Bell, Robertson)119/5-2

7: Fu Peggi Sue (Hernandez, McFarlane)123/6-1

Mac Robertson sends in a tough duo of girls with SHUT THE GATE and SOPHIA’S NIGHT. Give nod to Shut The Gate with strong series of works off long absence. SAKA has been sidelined for extended period of 10 months but works look good, including bullet drill.
