6: Jls Sure Shot (Golibrzuch, Miller)122/10-1

7: Wavin Bye Bye Carver (Luark, Olmstead)122/8-1

BAD GIRL PHASE just missed last out as the favorite after dueling the entire distance. MT QUICK IVORY has been training lights out for his inauguration to racing. QUEEN OF CADDO weakened last effort and should enjoy shortening up tonight.

2 350 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Optional claiming $10,000. Purse: $15,000.

5: Ricky Seperate (Torres, RHybsha)126/5-2

6: Jump the Creek (Eikleberry, Harris)126/8-1

7: Readi to Be Famous (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)126/9-2

RICKY SEPERATE was disqualified from his win last out as the chalk and seeks redemption. Needs to run a straight line to the wire. CR WAGON MAN is the class of the field and could prove tough if ready to fire off the extended layoff. JUMP THE CREEK will be a major player if can repeat performance from two back.

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

1: Not Guilty (Goncalves, Amoss)119/7-2

2: Money Tree (Canchari, O’Callaghan)123/8-1

3: Mr. Obeso (Hernandez, Riecken)123/15-1

4: Financial Freedom (Sanchez, Padilla)123/5-2

5: Initiative (Carreno, Diodoro)123/9-2

6: Nesterenko Ridge (Franco, Rhone)123/4-1

7: Ladron (Butler, Bravo)119/5-1

NESTERENKO RIDGE should settle nicely in the wind tunnel behind the expected pace battle in front of him. Won two back stalking the pace before drawing away. FINANCIAL FREEDOM failed as the heavily bet chalk last off coming up a tad late at the end. Deep closer will be the main late threat. Expect INITIATIVE and LADRON to knock heads out of gate at a scalding pace.

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

11: Francis Henry (Keith, McKinley)123/20-1

12: Nick’s Vision (Martin, Scherer)123/2-1

PEACE OFFERING would love a chance to get back on the turf after being subjected to running on the off track last three out. Has faced tougher out of state. COSTAUD will be the rabbit with his quick early foot off the rail. Won gate to wire last out at Lone Star Park. VANDERBOOM RIDGE won last effort at a nice price and looks to be developing nicely.

5 About 11⁄16 miles. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $30,000.

1: Blue Bomber (Eikleberry, Diodoro)121/4-1

11: Casting (Sanchez, Tracy)121/8-1

12: Mostly Mozart (Martin, Scherer)116/5-2

13: Bold Animaux (Sanchez, Biehler)116/7-2

Wide-open affair with many ways to bet. CASTLEBERG has slight class edge over his rivals and gets nice outside draw for perfect mid pack hunting position. Should be arriving to the scene late at a decent price. SIR SEARSUCKER finished third last out after three consecutive wins prior. Stepping up in class gives a vote of confidence. BLUE BOMBER will be the speed of the field coming off a front running style victory.

7: My Golden Train (Butler, Keen)119/5-2

8: Da’s Legacy (Murphy, Bethke)123/9-2

9: Cocico (Lopez, Bends)123/8-1

MY GOLDEN TRAIN lost late lead and landed in the third spot on the sloppy track last out. Could be ready to be in the spotlight tonight with a dry surface. COCICO finished a spot ahead of My Golden Train at 77-1 and getting paid huge dividends. DA’S LEGACY will get first crack at the front runners while sitting off the pace in stalking position. Ran fourth behind our top two picks.

7 6 furlongs. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,500.

9: Tahkodha Songking (Goncalves, Sheehan)119/20-1

10: Northern Lucero (Richard, Van Winkle)119/15-1

G ROAD has been second best last two out and should receive perfect pace setup to break maiden if good enough. RUNAWAY CHANCE has been training well for debut and might of found the right group to win at first asking. ARCHARCHMONARCH is another pace chaser who will appreciate the set up to swoop on.

6: Enduring Cause (Willey, Danger)118/8-1

7: Gray Day Lover (Goncalves, Keen)123/2-1

8: Karber (Richard, Litfin)123/5-1

GRAY DAY LOVER cuts back in distance and price with decent tactical speed. Wouldn’t be surprise to see jockey Goncalves send early with lack of speed in the field. DON’T CLAIM ME drops for over half the price after a couple of lack luster efforts. BROTHER STACHYS too takes sharp drop in class to turn things around. Ranked below top two selections.

6: Redneck Richie (Murphy, Cole)123/20-1

7: Truckin (Velazquez, Litfin)123/8-1

8: Talk the Walk (Franco, Lund)123/7-2

PAPA’S PAISLEY just missed last out picking them off late. Extra half-furlong tonight could be the answer of getting rewarded. TALK THE WALK is the one to catch to get the win. Enters with quick bullet drill in the books. Both OUTOFTHECLOUDS and AUGUST DAY drop a notch with favorable speed figures for this group.
