7: Mountain Rake (Pinon, Johnson)126/8-1

8: Sixappeal (Delorme, McKinley)124/20-1

9: Ls Little Effort (Velazquez, Johnson)126/9-2

EYRA HAYES is lone participant with a race under his belt this year and for a trainer with solid numbers second off the layoff. Ls LITTLE EFFORT gets perfect outside draw to begin his 2016 campaign. Strong winning percentage for trainer off the extended layoff. AVOID THE DRAMA and MOUNTAIN RAKE are a couple of newbies with solid works.

4: Thunder and Honey (A.Canchari, Robertson)119/2-1

5: Shaboom (Butler, Robertson)119/4-1

6: Precious Passion (Velazquez, Riecken)119/8-1

PETITE CHERI was undefeated in both her starts last season, including a impressive win in the Northern Lights Debutante. Will be cut loose late with ground-saving rail trip. THUNDER AND HONEY too will be flying late but might be better suited going longer lacking early speed. Connections will draw money at the windows. SHABOOM appears to be the one to catch with a group full of chasers. Doesn’t hurt to get Butler aboard to possibly milk the pace.

3 About 5 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $30,000.

7: Bushrod (Hernandez, Oliver)119/10-1

8: Summer Epic (Bethke, L.Canchari)123/20-1

ENSIGN ELI could prove tough if ready to fire off the 10-month layoff for his first local debut. New acquisition is a legitimate player who will come smokin out of the gate to the scramble up front. MALIBU PRO has two quick bullet drills coming in for the Robertson barn and is expected to tag along in the main body of runners. Should make middle threatening move while letting others sacrifice themselves up front. SIR MUNNINGS and BUSHROD make their first appearance on the lawn and could prove much tougher if race is taken off the surface due to June showers.

11: Not Allowed (Delorme, McKinley)123/20-1

12: Bubba Looey (S.Bethke, T.Bethke)119/15-1

Wide-open race with many ways to go. REIGNING WARRIOR has the best overall speed figures in this field on the grass and has face tougher foes earlier this year down at the Fair Grounds. HERBIE and LONG AWAITED GUEST begin their racing careers supporting strong work tabs. Might have found the ideal group to get a win first time out.

12: Royal Calling (Franco, Rengstorf)119/15-1

13: Justcallme Charlie (Sanchez, Rengstorf)119/8-1

Another head-scratcher on the turf but will give the slight edge to FEAR FIGHTER with the hot jockey aboard in Alex Canchari. Ran in holding pattern for debut in dirt sprint on opening weekend but pedigree suggests he should enjoy the turf. ZERO had one effort on the local sod last season and was nipped at the wire after trying to lead the field whole distance, expect to do the dirty work once again. HATTIES JEWEL, MINNESOTA OUTLAW, and BEST OF THE BLEAU’S could be battlers when race unfolds.

8: Gamer Babe (Dieguez, Silva)123/12-1

WARREN’S DIXI BELL should earn her diploma with her 14th start tonight shipping in from Santa Anita for the Diodoro barn. Drops for half the price and is strictly the one to fend off down the stretch. SIERRASTORM appears to be the main threat to the top choice and the one to catch on the lead. CAUSEMOMMASAIDO is a seasoned veteran but will have to regain her spring form to be a contender for win honors. Slight drop in class could be what the doctor ordered.

8: Bizet (Sanchez, Padilla)123/9-2

BET YOUR SOCKS had a couple of contaminated starts to finish the 2015 season but now gets a new barn with top jockey in hopes of getting out quickly and turning things around. LAW DOG was second best on opening night and should be set tracking the pace ready to pounce in his second local start. MOGILNY returns to Shakopee, where he has given his best performances including a couple gate-to-wire wins last summer.

7: Smooth Chiraz (Butler, Bravo)115/2-1

8: Hansboro (Velazquez, Sweere)119/10-1

Francisco Bravo sends out the two logical favorites and I’ll give the nod to CUPID’S DELIGHT, who should be a little better price at post. Drove clear to four-length victory to start the summer meet. Stablemate SMOOTH CHIRAZ, looks better on paper with class edge over his rivals and regains Dean Butler aboard. Coming off fourth-place finish in Paul Bunyan stakes. EVERT and HANSBORO are considerations for underneath.

6: Cocico (Lopez, Jr., Bends)123/10-1

7: Nicolas Cajun (Coddington, Hop)123/8-1

TAKE IT LIKE A MAN is strictly the one to beat and is my Best Bet to end the night. Speed numbers tower the field and is cutting back in class and distance. SATURDAY’S LIGHT is main threat but has a knack for the minor awards. Should be dueling early with others setting up the meltdown for the favorite. Expect NICOLAS CAJUN to come out firing from the outside hole coming off a extremely quick workout drill.
