6: Love My P A (Richard, Johnson)124/2-1

7: Apollitical Chick (Shepherd, Johnson)124/3-1

There will not be a better chance than tonight for LOVE MY P A to get her first win of the year and for Paul to go nuts on the race call. APOLLITICAL CHICK will be main threat to Love My P A. BEAUTIFULISH won five back but has been on the down low since, use underneath.

2 About 7½ furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $28,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Big Commission (Velazquez, Brinson)119/6-1

2: Shock the Clock (Eikleberry, Lund)123/6-1

3: Imperial Tea (A. Canchari, Berndt)119/4-1

4: Battleback John (Sanchez, Anderson)119/5-1

5: Tiz Won Irish Rose (Delorme, Sweere)123/20-1

6: Bellamy Run (Goncalves, Keen)119/8-5

7: Not Allowed (Franco, McKinley)119/20-1

8: Gray Satellite (Vergara, Sweere)123/8-1

IMPERIAL TEA comes heree from Gulfstream Park and changes hands for the first time to the Berndt barn, training smartly and gets Alex Canchari to push the go button. BELLAMY RUN was second best on the off track last out after a hum drum effort on the lawn, might be on the upside. SHOCK THE CLOCK and GRAY SATELLITE must not be overlooked coming from off the pace.

3 About 7½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $7,500. Purse: $14,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: I’ve Heard Rumors (Franco, Becker)119/9-2

2: Idling (Mello, Rengstorf)119/4-1

3: Sis Boom Bah (Nolan, Fisher)119/20-1

4: The Grans (Eikleberry, Lund)119/8-1

5: Hidden Edge (Velazquez, Biehler)119/10-1

6: Bluegrass Lucy (A. Canchari, Litfin)119/10-1

7: Pink Lipgloss (Butler, Rhone)119/6-1

8: Giant Rainbow (Vergara, Van Winkle)119/7-2

9: Cassidilly (Hernandez, Bera)119/5-1

10: Grayrock (Goncalves, Keen)119/4-1

11: Hawkeye Honey (Goncalves, Litfin)119/12-1

12: Addedup Nicely (Sanchez, Anderson)121/12-1

13: Natalies Storm (Butler, Pearson)121/9-2

THE GRANS kept to task last out after getting blocked and maneuvering six wide to get up for third last out, love that Eikleberry stays as the pilot. GIANT RAINBOW broke in the air out of the gate and never really recovered after that, turn back in distance will keep her close to the front. Probably have to catch HIDDEN EDGE to get the win and is proven at this level. IDLING has been second best last two out and will exhibit early speed in the scrap up front.

4 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Starter optional claiming: $7,500. Purse: $17,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Tactical Girl (Vergara, Sweere)121/6-1

2: Sammie’s Touch (Velazquez, Heitzmann)121/3-1

3: Smarty Party (A. Canchari, Anderson)119/5-1

4: Faith Rising (Butler, McShane)123/2-1

5: Steva La Diva (Mello, Anderson)119/10-1

6: Pukaberry (Eikleberry, Harris)121/3-1

FAITH RISING has a knack for the wire as she did last out with a strong wide rally, like her progress this summer. PUKABERRY set a blistering pace last out and got nipped by our top pick, legit player with softer fractions. SMARTY PARTY looms the late closing threat with her new surroundings shipping up from Prairie Meadows.

5 5½ furlongs. Open. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $28,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Malibu Pro (A. Canchari, Robertson)118/5-2

2: Judge Money (Mello, Tracy, Jr.)118/8-1

3: Flower Beach (Hernandez, McFarlane)118/15-1

4: Lend Me the Lute (Carreno, Diodoro)118/3-1

5: Cable Jett (Vergara, Diodoro)118/4-1

6: John’s Luck (Goodwin, Heitzmann)118/6-1

7: Juvat (Delorme, McFarlane)118/20-1

8: Anxious Dreams (Eikleberry, Diodoro)118/6-1

LEND ME LUTE has been training as quickly as you can and trainer Diodoro really enjoys winning with his new shooters. DIODORO also sends out CABLE JETT and ANXIOUS DREAMS who have been training smartly, sleeper alert for upset. MALIBU PRO enters with only three works but last morning spin was a bullet and connections will draw cash at the window.

6 6½ furlongs. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Chocolate I Scream (Goncalves, Bethke)123/10-1

2: Zero (Sanchez, Rhone)123/5-1

3: Unique Gold (Eikleberry, Scherbenske)119/5-1

4: Bear Down (Nolan, Riecken)119/30-1

5: Northern Lucero (Vergara, Van Winkle)119/20-1

6: Shot of Joe (Becerra, Sheehan)119/8-1

7: Shady Shadow (Butler, Turco)119/4-1

8: Somerset Bear (Delorme, Rhone)119/6-1

9: Demis Lil’ Star (A. Canchari, L. Canchari)123/15-1

10: Holy Brass (Carreno, Weir)123/3-1

Wide open below-par field where any runner has a fighting chance. I’ll give the nod to the morning line favorite HOLY BRASS with speed carrying him to the stretch run and hopefully beyond for his first win in 15th attempt, jockey Carreno must bid his time to the inside speed to pounce. SOMERSET BEAR was in deep waters last out trying to run two turns in stakes race, should appreciate cutback and class relief. SHADY SHADOW rallied late to get up for the thin money last race to round out the superfecta.

7 5½ furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $6,250. Purse: $10,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bench Press (Becerra, Donlin, Jr.)123/8-1

2: Off His Rocker (Richard, Chambers)119/20-1

3: Hi Temp Joker (Hernandez, Tracy, Jr.)119/15-1

4: Hidden Demon (Sanchez, Van Winkle)119/4-1

5: Going Platinum (A. Canchari, Tracy, Jr.)119/15-1

6: Mr. Jerry (Goncalves, Litfin)119/12-1

7: Mr. Obeso (Butler, Riecken)123/5-1

8: Bristol Rover (Carreno, Rhone)123/7-2

9: Bint Julep (Mello, Anderson)123/8-1

10: Karber (Velazquez, Litfin)123/8-1

11: Tough Toy (Eikleberry, Silva)123/10-1

BRISTOL ROVER drops for half the price and is a logical choice for top honors while managing forward position in a speed favoring pace. Expect speedballs HIDDEN DREAMS and MR. OBESO to be knocking heads throughout setting up for the off pace runners to swoop on. BENCH PRESS has been on the shelf for 10 months but could prove worthy if regains old form from his west coast days.

8 6½ furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $4,000. Purse: $10,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Dark Red (Willey, O’Callaghan)118/20-1

2: Logan’sshorebreeze (Becerra, McFadden)123/30-1

3: Speeding Spike (Eikleberry, Miller)123/8-1

4: Brick Maker (Carreno, Ledgess)123/6-1

5: Soaring Native (Butler, McShane)123/9-5

6: Timber Hills (Sanchez, Sweere)123/30-1

7: Command the Land (Franco, Chambers)123/2-1

8: Mr. Norfleet (A. Canchari, Martin)123/9-2

SOARING NATIVE should show good early speed invading from Iowa for a trainer who knows how to spot his runners, gets Butler aboard to help carry speed to stretch run for terrific position to pounce. COMMAND THE LAND is usually in the mix and is a major pace player. BRICK MAKER and MR. NORFLEET should be flying late and are intriguing plays at a decent price.

9 6 furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $20,000. Purse: $20,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

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

2: Shawniff (Mello, Tracy, Jr.)123/8-1

3: Friarcracker (Butler, Bravo)123/6-1

4: Artemusmailcarrier (Goodwin, Riecken)119/20-1

5: Eton Ridge (Goncalves, Amoss)119/7-5

6: Harnersbach (Franco, Lund)119/9-2

7: Hansboro (Nolan, Sweere)123/4-1

ETON RIDGE has fought much tougher this summer meet and is strictly the one to beat with the drop in class off the turf for Midwest Thoroughbreds. HARNERBACH steps up in class with a load of confidence with back to back wins coming from off the pace. NESTERENKO will set the pace off the rail as a allowance dropper, concern of weakening last three spins.
