7: Breeze of Dubai (Goncalves,Bethke)123/12-1

EMPRESS WILDCAT drops to lowest level of her career in hopes of earning her cap and gown in her seventh career start. Gets new trainer after rough start and wide trip last out. GRACIE JEAN stretches out to two turns shipping in the from west coast for the O’Callaghan barn; expect to keep runners honest up front with ample early speed. DANCING ATLANTIC gets softer competition and new venue in hopes of turning things around after three cheerless starts.

6: Im a Southern Diva (Velazquez,Brinson)123/5-2

7: Bella Parvata (P.Canchari,L.Canchari)123/10-1

SPICY ABBY gets major class relief to bottom claimers with hot jockey Dean Butler aboard as a new acquisition for trainer Heitzmann. Expect to be involved from the bell. SERIOUS GRAY ran third after fanning four wide on a muddy track after the six-month layoff. Should improve off that effort and a fast track. LETSGORACINGBOYS is projected as the one to catch and is winner in two of past three starts.

7: Dolly Peach (Martin,Scherbenske)119/10-1

8: Ciaran’s Prize (Butler,Berndt)119/9-2

KISS TO REMEMBER is the class of the field in her first local start for trainer Tom Amoss. Likes to sit off the pace while others do the heavy lifting up front for first attack. STOUPINATOR looms late closing threat in field loaded with speed. should be a handful down the stretch. BE PROUD and JAZZ BEAT will be gunning early for the lead with quick early foot, both exit gate-to-wire victories.

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

11: Gracias a Ti (Vergara,Silva)118/5-1

WEALTHY SHIPMAN would love for the race to stay on the grass after having to run on the off-track last two out. Faced much tougher out of state in lone two turf races and is entitled to move forward with this group. MARE OF SHILOH came flying from the clouds while getting up for the win in her last effort on the lawn. Would benefit form contested fractions. INDIVIDUAL DESIGN could be a key factor on the front end with field lacking of speed in her first turf race.

5: Sonny Money (Eikleberry,Silva)123/5-1

6: Great River Skier (Butler,Bravo)123/2-1

7: Brick Alley (Richard,VanWinkle)123/6-1

BING’S MAGIC returns to his home stomping grounds after the six-month sabbatical and could respond well if ready to fire for the Robertson stable. GREAT RIVER SKIER comes off the long layoff with some solid works for trainer Bravo, who excels in returning his runners off the bench. SONNY MONEY last effort was a win here last September, solid work tab coming in.

5: Quality Guy (Thornton,Berndt)116/9-5

6: Flying Frank (Eikleberry,Padilla)117/5-1

7: Bobblehead (Butler,Rhone)121/6-1

QUALITY GUY keeps improving each race and now steps up a level coming off a two-length victory last out. FLYING FRANK has two bullet drills coming in off the shelf and has benefit of facing stronger foes in the 2014 season. MOONLIT PARK steps up in class after impressive front running style victory last effort at Tampa Bay Downs.

7 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $28,000.

7: Doodle Hopper (Carreno,Robertson)119/9-2

8: Nesterenko Ridge (Sanchez,Rhone)123/8-1

DOODLE HOPPER will get nice view of the expected heated pace to swoop on from far off the pace with Carreno at the helm. Narrowly missed two back with his closing kick at Oaklawn Park. Trainer Diodoro has two speedballs in here with DISCREET PRINCE and UNOBTANIUM, both of whom will be pushed along in what could be a wild first quarter. First-timer SEEK THE NOBLEST, had two quick bullet drills in first two career works, always a sign to exhibit early speed.

8: Give Me Liberty (Velazquez,Sweere)123/5-1

9: Blumin Lucky (Delorme,Pfeifer)123/12-1

AUGUST DAY seeks to improve second off the layoff after not being a threat last out at Hawthorne Park; got in the money gimmicks in all three starts last year here. MOGILNY ran third in quarter horse event last out and has strong chance to improve gate speed off that race as possible lone pace-setter. TENSAW returns to sprinting after humdrum effort running two turns.
