  • Updated: August 31, 2014 - 11:56 PM

A look at Monday's races from the Shakopee track:

Post time: 12:45 p.m. Best bet: Ridgestone (8th Race). Best play: 50 cent-Pick 4, Race 1, (1,4,6,7/4,5/1,2,6/2,5,6,8,9), $60.

Race 1: 5½ furlongs. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Smooth Joy (Rivera, Scherer)118/5-1

2: Quean Hawk (A. Canchari, Tracy)118/6-1

3: Discretion Advised (Dieguez, Hanson)118/15-1

4: Luv Da Skin Shezin (Franco, Diodoro)118/3-1

5: Lilah’s Thunder (P. Canchari, Bethke)118/20-1

6: Wealthy Shipman (Goodwin, Scherer)118/4-1

7: Belleoftheprairie (Martin, Silva)118/8-5

BELLEOFTHEPRAIRIE ran second for third consecutive time last out chasing a fast pace and merits respect to move forward breaking her maiden. WEALTHY SHIPMAN got off slowly for unveiling in same race as top choice but got up late for the third spot; dangerous if breaks alertly. LUV DA SKIN SHEZIN shows a strong series of works.

Race 2: 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $35,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Breezy Point (Goodwin, Scherer)118/9-2

2: Edgy Memorie (Butler, Rhone)118/15-1

3: Mr. Norfleet (Shino, Martin)118/8-1

4: National (Martin, Rarick)118/5-1

5: Broadway Empire (Franco, Diodoro)118/1-1

6: Magnet Cove (A. Canchari, Tracy)118/6-1

7: Mad Genius (Rivera, Scherer)118/12-1

BROADWAY EMPIRE attempts turf for first time with huge class edge on the field; rate higher if race is taken off the grass, slight concern being late scratch last out still lingers. NATIONAL will be pursuing Broadway Empire coming off a front-running victory last out in dirt sprint. BREEZY POINT and MAGNET COVE should be picking off runners late.

Race 3: 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Correspondence (Swiontek, McFadden)118/20-1

2: Lady Angel (A. Canchari, Tracy)123/8-5

3: I Learned English (Shepherd, Turco)123/8-1

4: Live and Learn (Hernandez, Wiley)123/6-1

5: Lil’ Gizmo (Brown, Cole)123/12-1

6: Gold Raj (Eikleberry, Biehler)123/3-1

7: Emerald Point (Martin, Groen)123/7-2

GOLD RAJ jumps off the turf with good early foot and will try to shake loose from this feeble group. LADY ANGEL appears the one to beat but might look better on paper; lone win was on sloppy track. CORRESPONDENCE drops from allowance race off the turf and could improve at a level more to her liking at a huge price.

Race 4: 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $19,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Lil’s Edge (Keith, McShane)123/15-1

2: Mr. Cactus (Carreno, Diodoro)119/6-1

3: King of Sharks (Shepherd, Litfin)119/8-1

4: Prince Richard (Hernandez, Tracy)119/10-1

5: You Be Gator Bait (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/5-1

6: Demi Blue (Butler, Rhone)123/9-2

7: Big Hearted Dennis (Shino, Pearson)123/12-1

8: Twelve Tribes (Eikleberry, Ritter)119/6-1

9: Bandini Moon (Martin, House)123/8-1

10: Malibu Deputy (Franco, Diodoro)119/8-1

11: Prince Demidoff (Dieguez, Bethke)123/30-1

12: Mister Wu (Swiontek, McFadden)123/20-1

DEMI BLUE rallied for third in first turf start last out and is entitled to move forward for the Rhone/Butler team. MR. CACTUS is a consistent runner who will accelerate early out of the gate and attempt to control the speed up front. TWELVE TRIBES won two back at this level and distance, gathering up rivals late.

Race 5: 1 1⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Floor Money (Shepherd, Troche)123/5-1

2: Limeshare (Eikleberry, McShane)123/6-1

3: Setnmupknocknmdown (Shino, Donlin)123/8-1

4: Miles Heir (Dieguez, Litfin)123/15-1

5: Go to the Pulpit (P. Canchari, Wolff)123/10-1

6: Cowboy Luke (Martin, Padilla)123/9-2

7: Titian (Goodwin, Hartman)123/4-1

8: Peaks of Legend (Franco, Hemba)123/6-1

9: Startingold (A. Canchari, Hemba)123/5-1

COWBOY LUKE came back to form last out, going gate-to-wire for the win after a few below-par performances; realistic assignment to repeat. STARTINGGOLD ships up from Iowa with good tactical speed, has a knack for getting in the money gimmicks. FLOOR MONEY and PEAKS OF LEGEND exit same race settling for place and show honors.

Race 6: 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $19,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Socratical (Eikleberry, McFarlane)123/6-1

2: Magic and More (Martin, Lund)119/15-1

3: Krimson Kid (Shepherd, Rhone)119/8-1

4: Killin’ the Blues (Franco, Diodoro)119/6-1

5: Star Street (Escobar, Brinson)123/7-2

6: Brick Alley (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/8-1

7: Youaretrue (Hernandez, Tracy)119/5-1

8: Jackson Station (Carreno, Diodoro)119/12-1

9: Prairie Appeal (Bell, Danger)123/20-1

10: Burning Fuhry (Dieguez, Bethke)123/12-1

11: Rodger Wilko (Butler, Pearson)119/20-1

12: John’s Vow (Keith, McShane)123/15-1

BRICK ALLEY keeps improving with his turf efforts and should receive quick pace to sit behind if ready to fire at a price. STAR STREET dueled for most the race last out before giving way late and losing by less than a length as the favorite. SOCRATICAL, MAGIC AND MORE and JACKSON STATION are all major players in this closely matched field.

Race 7: 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $28,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bolting Brown (Hernandez, Tracy)121/3-1

2: Fusaichi Kid (Butler, Rhone)121/5-1

3: Policio (Shino, Cole)121/15-1

4: I Use Tohave Money (Keith, McShane)117/9-2

5: Cinco Y Cinco (Carreno, Robertson)121/4-1

6: Stormy Red Kat (Eikleberry, McShane)121/9-2

7: Bing’s Magic (A. Canchari, Robertson)121/7-2

CINCO Y CINCO should benefit from the speed up front with his late closing kick, just missed last out gathering momentum late against tougher. BOLTING BROWN split horses getting up for the win last out, moving up in class today off that performance. BING’S MAGIC showed brief early speed before fading last out as the chalk; fighting chance if regains old form.

Race 8: 1 1⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $25,000. Purse: $30,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: It’s Tamareno (Martin, Scherbenske)119/6-1

2: Cell Line Forever (Franco, Rarick)119/5-1

3: A Fitzing Reward (Butler, Bravo)119/6-1

4: Disqualified (Shepherd, Pearson)119/10-1

5: Ridgeofstone (Eikleberry, Biehler)123/7-2

6: Corsierra (A. Canchari, Tracy)118/8-1

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

8: Starry Eyed Kate (Bell, Robertson)119/4-1

RIDGESTONE enters with consecutive front-running wins and could be tough to catch if not challenged early. STARRY EYED KATE ships up from Arlington Park for the Robertson barn and looms as late closing threat to our top choice. A FITZING REWARD has hit the board in all five starts this summer meet including win last out.
