Post time: 6:45 p.m. Best bet: Valey (7th Race). Best play: 50 cent—Pick 4, Race 7, (7/2,3,4,5/1,2,4/All), $42.

1 330 Yards. State-bred. Open. 2-year-olds. Maiden. Purse: $13,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Miss Fly Bye (Goodwin, Johnson)122/8-1

2: Sr Ur Fired (Luark, Olmstead)122/9-5

3: Sixappeal (Smith, Clay)122/2-1

4: Everet Hitch (Swiontek, Livingston)122/12-1

5: Timeto Kickback (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/5-1

6: Blacks Cartel (Delorme, Black)122/8-1

7: I Am the Doctor (Eikleberry, Johnson)122/10-1

SR UR FIRED has been knocking on the door with game efforts and has fighting chance of breaking maiden with fourth attempt. BLACKS CARTEL improved greatly in last start and is a threat off that performance. SIXAPPEAL launches career off a couple of decent works.

2 300 Yards. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $15,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bully B Quick (Delorme, McKinley)124/6-1

2: My Gunbuddy (Suarez Ricardo, Fennell, Jr.)124/12-1

3: Beautifulish (Eikleberry, Harris)124/3-1

4: Goldies Big Time (Luark, Kane)126/10-1

5: Justa Bump (Goodwin, Johnson)126/2-1

6: Little Bit Brandy (Smith, Johnson)126/7-2

7: Bee Bee Guns (Golibrzuch, Miller)124/8-1

JUSTA BUMP dueled and lost by a nose as the favorite last out and looks to rebound. LITTLE BIT BRANDY had horrific beginning last out and deserves another shot. BEAUTIFULISH has been a money maker this summer, including a win three back.

3 About 1 1/16 Miles. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $12,500. Purse: $14,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Qahr (Goodwin, Sheehan)123/15-1

2: Costaud (Butler, Keen)123/2-1

3: Vespertini (Escobar, Troche)118/6-1

4: Francis Henry (Keith, McKinley)123/12-1

5: Caleb’s Comet (Murphy, Rarick)123/8-1

6: Otto Shootie (Martinez, Robertson)118/5-2

7: Kipson (Eikleberry, Scherbenske)123/7-2

COSTAUD projects as the one to catch and could prove tough foe second off the layoff. FRANCIS HENRY drops a notch in class and will be pressing the pace with Lori Keith aboard. OTTO SHOOTIE and KIPSON will be rolling late and only need to maintain present form to be logical threats.

4 About 7½ Furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $20,000. Purse: $19,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Ladron (Carreno, Francisco Bravo)119/12-1

2: Best Asset (Franco, McFarlane)119/8-1

3: Manlee Spirit (Richard, Peters)123/20-1

4: King of Sharks (Sanchez, Litfin)123/9-2

5: Classic Blaze (Goncalves, Amoss)119/2-1

6: Burning Fuhry (Martinez, Bethke)123/20-1

7: Hollywood Premiere (Eikleberry, Lund)119/10-1

8: Star Street (Velazquez, Brinson)123/3-1

9: Win D Prado (Butler, Scherbenske)123/8-1

10: Antioch Native (Sanchez, Westermann)123/20-1

11: Irish Shindig (Vergara, Keller)119/20-1

CLASSIC BLAZE could be long gone if unchallenged early and shaking loose on easy fractions; jockey Goncalves will be imploring the gelding to hold on to the wire. STAR STREET rallied wide to get the bronze last out off the eight-month absence; can move forward second off the bench. KING OF SHARKS has been a money maker the past four races, but his record suggest best use underneath on exotic tickets.

5 About 11/16 Miles. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $30,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sir Searsucker (Franco, McFarlane)121/6-1

2: Pilatus (Butler, Berndt)121/7-2

3: Vanderbilt Beach (Sanchez, Rengstorf)121/10-1

4: Peace Offering (Velazquez, Biehler)121/5-2

5: Blue Bomber (Eikleberry, Diodoro)121/9-2

6: Castlederg (Goodwin, Scherer)121/10-1

7: Casting (Martinez, Tracy, Jr.)121/8-1

8: Proud Royal (Carreno, Bravo)118/10-1

9: The Third Ace (Keith, Riecken)121/20-1

10: Deja l’Etoile (Velazquez, Scherer)116/5-2

11: Grand Avenue (Franco, Shaw)121/8-1

12: Fast Away (Goncalves, Amoss)118/5-1

Taking a shot with VANDERBILT BEACH as a possible double-digit price play; takes significant drop from stakes race and does supports a win three back sprinting on the dirt. BLUE BOMBER is the one to catch to get the win controlling the speed up front; won two back going gate to wire. PEACE OFFERING is your likely post time favorite coming off impressive driving win as the chalk last out.

6 6½ Furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $4,000. Purse: $10,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sweet Tigger (Martinez, Westermann)123/20-1

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

3: Shipmaker (Delorme, Bends)123/15-1

4: Speeding Spike (Golibrzuch, Miller)123/8-1

5: Riseseastsetswest (Goodwin, Riecken)123/5-2

6: Outoftheclouds (Eikleberry, Bolinger)123/10-1

7: Brick Maker (Murphy, Ledgess)123/15-1

8: Truckin (Velazquez, Litfin)123/20-1

9: Command the Land (Butler, Rhone)123/2-1

COMMAND THE LAND just missed last outing after pressing the pace the entire distance; expect to be in the main body of runners near the finish. RISESEASTSSETSWEST usually gives a useful effort and would benefit from contested fractions with his late closing kick. TALK THE WALK has good early speed and may find himself on the lead with Franco as the pilot.

7 6 Furlongs. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden Claiming: $30,000. Purse: $17,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Somerset Bear (Delorme, Rhone)119/9-2

2: Northland Gold (Richard, Riecken)119/5-1

3: Tahkodha Songking (Becerra, Sheehan)119/15-1

4: Demis Lil’ Star (P. Canchari, L. Canchari)123/12-1

5: Austere Ascetic (Murphy, Tracy, Jr.)119/6-1

6: Shady Shadow (Fackler, Turco)119/8-1

7: Valet (Swiontek, Livingston)119/1-1

VALET was second best in lone start and appears to be the top contender with this unconvincing maiden group; love the quick training session coming in. SOMERSET BEAR, AUSTERE ASCETIC, and SHADY SHADOW are new shooters with works suggesting they are ready to go.

8 6 Furlongs. Fillies and Mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $6,250. Purse: $10,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Golden Carat (Fackler, Turco)119/12-1

2: Beahereincourt (Goncalves, Keen)123/3-1

3: Kodiak’s Pride (Sanchez, Scherbenske)123/5-1

4: She’s Coal Hearted (Hernandez, Berndt)119/5-2

5: Subtle Splendor (Velazquez, Berndt)123/3-1

6: My Best (P. Canchari, O’Callaghan)119/10-1

7: Undone Sweater (Becerra, Berg)123/8-1

BEAHEREINCOURT won last out with top career speed figure while prompting the pace in stalking position; freshened up with bullet drill. SHE’S COAL HEARTED drops to new low after a couple of failed efforts this summer meet; looks to rebound to form she showed at Hawthorne this past April where she broke her maiden in impressive fashion. SUBTLE SPLENDOR moves from route to sprint after exhibiting early speed before fading late; unruly before post, so could be tough opponent if relaxes before the bell sounds.

9 6 Furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $12,500. Purse: $14,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bourbon Holiday (Goncalves, Keen)123/2-1

2: My Golden Train (Butler, Keen)119/3-1

3: Shangrila Bar (Hernandez, Riecken)123/10-1

4: Outdated (Carreno, Diodoro)119/9-5

5: Victory Sled (Richard, Riecken)123/12-1

6: Finlander (Escobar, Sweere)123/8-1

OUTDATED has class edge on the field and takes another drop in hopes of making his way back to the winner’s circle. MY GOLDEN TRAIN exits a nice win as the chalk last out coming from off the pace; been tuned up with two quick works in the morning. BOURBON HOLIDAY could be a handful off the layoff and supports a solid work tab coming in.

10 1 Mile 70 Yards. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden Claiming: $10,000. Purse: $12,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Samstar (Martinez, Rengstorf)118/3-1

2: Regal Rival (Delorme, Pfeifer)118/2-1

3: Musical Slew (Richard, Shaw)123/15-1

4: Captain of Summer (Carreno, Diodoro)118/5-2

5: Tahkodha Royale (Butler, Sheehan)118/6-1

6: Bishop’s Gold (Lopez, Jr., Rhone)123/15-1

7: Supremo’s Rebel (Sanchez, Kane)123/8-1

REGAL RIVAL moves down in class in hopes of breaking his maiden with his seventh attempt. SUPREMO’S REBEL also gets class relief with the stretch out to two turns after dull effort in short sprint. CAPTAIN OF SUMMER will try to shake loose up front as possible lone speed in this wide-open nightcap.
