14: Correspondence (Nolan, McFadden)123/30-1

15: She Spends My Lute (Stevens,Diodoro)119/3-1

Wide-open race to start the evening. BLACKHAWK’S SIS was overmatched last out in allowance race on the off track, but now returns to level more to her liking. Should keep front-runners honest prompting the pace. Been a while since MISS SENTRY has been on the turf but could prove tough opponent if the mare can locate last year’s form with Butler aboard. FABLE and KLASSY KLEPPER deserve respect as the lukewarm favorite but prefer others on top.

6: Betyar (A.Canchari, Robertson)119/9-2

7: Classy Teacher (Goodwin, Sharp)123/7-5

CLASSY TEACHER will attempt to lead the group to the wire, cutting back in distance for barn that excels on the turf. BETYAR got the job done in her first career start and now steps up to allowance race at the same distance with Canchari remaining aboard. LADY BABAKO has three races under her belt and is a natural fit here coming from off the pace.

10: Why Frank (Ramgeet, Oliver)121/6-1

11: I’vegotafeeling (Stevens,Diodoro)119/10-1

EMPIRE KNIGHT is usually in the frame when things unfold down the stretch. Comes in with consecutive wins on the off track. Rate higher if race switches surfaces. SLIP AND DRIVE has class edge over most of his rivals but has been away from the game for the past six months. WARONTHEHOMEFRONT is alert gate-breaker and should appreciate the cutback with his quick turn of foot. Tired late last out after setting punishing fractions.

4 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $4,000. Purse: $10,000.

5: Go to the Pulpit (A.Canchari, Wolff)123/5-1

6: Double Parqued (Castro, Riecken)123/6-1

ON CYCLE came flying late with inside move and getting the win by over four lengths at this level and distance last out. Must land on the favorite off that performance. SHEER TRICK is also a late closer and will give a pass last race after breaking slowly. Record suggests best used underneath on ticket. GO TO THE PULPIT will come out smoking.

6: Blue Jeans N Beer (Butler,McShane)119/7-2

7: Hattaway Big Fella (A.Canchari,Rengstorf)119/5-1

SAM SCORED A GOAL should sit in the garden spot behind the wall of speed for first attack on the leaders. BLUE JEANS N BEER is destined to duel with one or two rivals from the start. Exits prolonged pace battle and came up second on sloppy track. HATTAWAY BIG FELLA and L G SUPREM are lone routers turning back in the group. Will lag behind while letting others settle the difference up front.

5: Redneck Attack (Nolan, W.Rarick)119/6-1

6: Bristol Rover (Butler, Rhone)123/5-2

7: Sand Script (Stevens, Hartman)119/10-1

BRISTOL ROVER’s running style is no secret; get to the front and go as far he can while being chased. BILTMORE BOOGIE has two wins as the favorite in past three starts and will be in the scramble when things get interesting. BET YOUR SOCKS enters with consecutive wins and should gather momentum late with ground-saving trip.

7 6 furlongs. 2-year-olds. Allowance optional claiming: $75,000. Purse: $33,000.

6: U S Express (Stevens, Broberg)117/10-1

7: Devil’s Teeth (Goodwin, Scherer)120/5-2

FIREMAN OSCAR appears to be the day’s best with speed numbers towering the field. Like to see jockey Delorme refrain from battling on the front end with field loaded with early speed. DEVIL’S TEETH will be main threat rolling late if top pick gets in heated pace duel. BACK ALLEY WARRIOR broke his maiden last out by 17 lengths in gate-to-wire fashion.

7: Thecausewaykid (Ramgeet, Rhone)123/10-1

8: Rhetorical (Hernandez, Diodoro)123/8-5

RHETORICAL has been second last two efforts closing late from mid-pack and now drops a notch. JEBIAS probably will be the one to track down on the lead with rail position and ample early speed. PARADISE ROCK is a veteran warrior who will be rolling late to the party. Late kick might be limited if pace is pedestrian-like.
