JOHNNY LOVE’S CANTERBURY LINE

Post time: 12:45 p.m. Best bet: Spell Winder (3rd race). Best play: 50 cent Pick 4 (2nd): (1,2,3,4,5/7/1,2,3,5,6,8,9/1,2,6), $52.50

1 3 furlongs. 2-year-olds. Purse: $13,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Final Attempt (Johnson, Kane)122/20-1

2: Captain Carburetor (Swiontek, Livingston)122/12-1

3: Sweetarts (Hunt, Miller)122/15-1

4: Never Seen (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/10-1

5: Calamady Jane (Shepherd, Livingston)122/15-1

6: Itinkican Itinkican (Goodwin, Olmstread)122/7-5

7: Jamalie (Delorme, Hardy)122/8-1

8: Fantastic Curves (Velazquez, Olmstead)122/6-1

9: Eos Marie Leveau (Delgado, Hardy)122/3-1

EOS MARIE LEVEAU bored in at the break in her debut and deserves another shot. ITINKICAN ITINKICAN ran second in her debut and appears the one to beat. JAMALIE broke poorly in her first start and should improve with clean break.

2 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: English Gent (Mojica, Rhone)124/6-1

2: Unlikely Story (Sanchez, Metz)118/2-1

3: Logistical (Acosta, Sharp)118/5-2

4: He Gotta Go (Loveberry, Hornsby)124/7-2

5: Act Your Wage (Delgado, Silva)124/10-1

6: Red Lad (Mawing, Tracy)118/20-1

7: Kilroy (Shepherd, Litfin)124/8-1

UNLIKELY STORY could prove tough if he can transfer his running form from the turf to the dirt. Comes here from the west coast circuit where he faced much tougher. LOGISTICAL ships up from Churchill Downs for the Joe Sharp barn after a nonfactor effort. Thing that sticks out, is his eye popping bullet morning drill on the local track. Sharp might be tightening the screws on his runner. ENGLISH GENT returns off the long layoff, but is proven at this level and is a interesting alternative.

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

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Danzig Fare (Mawing, Silva)124/6-1

2: Preachinatsagoi (Hernandez, Gordon)124/7-2

3: Im Moneyinthebank (Sanchez, Padilla)124/3-1

4: Im a Southern Diva (Loveberry, Walker)124/12-1

5: My Majestic (Delorme, Kirby)124/8-1

6: Oltimate Broad (Butler, Walker)124/10-1

7: Spell Winder (Mojica, Donlin)124/2-1

SPELL WINDER usually sacrifices herself on the lead and tries to hold on for dear life to the wire. She should make it today with a field of chasers following her. IM MONEYINTHEBANK comes up from Tampa Bay where he won two back at this distance. PREACHINATSAGOI is a consistent runner and has a knack to get a paycheck with most her races.

4 7½ furlongs on turf. Allowance. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $33,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Patrick O’Prado (Joubert, Hanson)124/8-1

2: Smooth Stroke (Goodwin, Rarick)124/5-1

3: Sun Country (Acosta, Broberg)124/6-1

4: Formidable Force (Mojica, Bravo)118/10-1

5: Teddy Time (Canchari, Robertson)124/5-1

6: Shooters Alley (Shepherd, Litfin)124/4-1

7: Where’s Jordan (Mawing, Peters)124/15-1

8: Tavernonthecrow (Delorme, Bethke)124/10-1

9: Darrenator (Loveberry, Rhone)124/8-1

10: Saganaga (Velazquez, Scherer)124/6-1

SUN COUNTRY is lone runner with turf race under her belt this year and trainer Karl Broberg is due to start getting in the winning column. TEDDY TIME will draw money due to the Robertson/Canchari duo. Tough to put on top with so-so runnings last year and only four works coming in. Maybe best used underneath. SHOOTERS ALLEY has a shaky look as the favorite. Will try to go gate-to-wire but lone turf performance was a eight place finish. Prefer others in this wide open race.

5 6 furlongs. Allowance. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $33,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Line of Grace (Evans, Robertson)118/3-1

2: Elli Mae Win (Sanchez, Rengstorf)124/3-1

3: Kandy Sweep (Velazquez, Brinson)124/10-1

4: Java Chick (Loveberry, Biehler)118/8-1

5: Precious Passion (Butler, Riecken)124/6-1

6: Da Kleinen Schatzi (Mojica, Rengstorf)124/2-1

7: Ari Gia (Shepherd, Miller)118/12-1

LINE OF GRACE started her racing career with a victory at Canterbury, but has been 0-5 since. Maybe coming back home will regain her winning ways. DA KLEINEN SCHATZI is another beatable favorite who will be rolling late to the scene but with not much early speed to close on. ELLIE MAE WIN could catch a gear and keep the pace honest. Dependable money maker.

6 Northbound Pride Oaks Stakes. One mile. 3-year-old fillies. Purse: $50,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: We’ve Got to Talk (Hernandez, Sheehan)116/15-1

2: Super Marina (Goodwin, Weaver)116/4-1

3: Miz Clipper (Emigh, Becker)116/9-2

4: Hotshot Anna (Canchari, Robertson)116/7-2

5: Starr Bear (Loveberry, Cox)118/4-1

6: Dancer’s Notes (Mojica, Silva)116/12-1

7: Irish Beauty (Ramgeet, Oliver)116/15-1

8: Bernadiva (Butler, Mott)116/3-1

BERNADIVA had consecutive wins before laying a egg in a Grade 3 stakes race at Churchill Downs. I look for the filly to rebound and win the Northbound Pride Stakes with Dean Butler at the helm. SUPER MARINA toured the course in the fifth spot last out in stakes race at Aqueduct. Can’t take lightly facing a softer field. Expect STARR BEAR and HOTSHOT ANNA to keep things interesting up front trying to hang in, and hang on.

7 Honor the Hero Stakes. 5 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $50,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Rockin Home (Delorme, Van Winkle)117/10-1

2: Warrior’s Kid (Canchari, Heitzmann)115/8-1

3: Shogood (Emigh, Becker)117/9-5

4: World Famous Sam T (Goodwin, Bethke)117/6-1

5: Shadow Rock (Parker, Maker)117/2-1

6: P Club (Hernandez, Kenney)117/12-1

7: Wildfire Kid (Lindsay, Diodoro)117/9-2

8: Saturdaynitelites (Mawing, Rarick)117/8-1

SHADOW ROCK will have all the speed he needs in front of him to roll on with solid veteran jockey Deshawn Parker aboard to capture the Honor The Hero Stakes. SHOGOOD is the deserving M/L favorite with class edge and quick early foot. Just think he might be challenged from both sides early and possibly throw in the towel down the stretch. SATURDAYNITELITES has been excelling on the dirt and now switches surfaces to to see what he is made of. Strong contender if race goes to dirt due to rain at a price.

8 5½ furlongs. Allowance. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $33,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Somsi (Canchari, Robertson)124/8-5

2: Keats Corner (Joubert, Hanson)119/8-1

3: Hattaway Big Fella (Sanchez, Rengstorf)124/12-1

4: Kelamonster (Acosta, Robertson)124/4-1

5: Richard Thomas (Velazquez, Scherer)124/7-2

6: Fireman Oscar (Loveberry, Van Winkle)119/10-1

7: Grand Marais (Ramgeet, Scherer)119/6-1

RICHARD THOMAS managed to get up for place honors while not getting the dream trip off the year layoff. Should prove tough with clean trip at a square price. SOMSI will be a tough favorite for the Robertson team with his early speed departing from the rail. GRAND MARAIS went gate-to-wire in route race last out, winning by nearly seven lengths. Like his progress, but will have to step on the gas from the start.

9 7½ furlongs on turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $17,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Housemake (Velazquez, Van Winkle)124/7-2

2: Sassy Prance (Acosta, Broberg)124/5-1

3: Imagine If (Butler, Rhone)124/3-1

4: Sea Tales (Evans, Bends)124/20-1

5: Angelnaule (Ramgeet, Oliver)124/10-1

6: Blackhawk’s Sis (Canchari, Robertson)124/6-1

7: Zibby Do (Mawing, Rhone)124/20-1

8: Flirtwiththedevil (Goodwin, Anderson)124/15-1

9: Trolley (Loveberry, Sweere)124/12-1

10: First Embrace (Mojica, Sterling)124/5-1

IMAGINE IF scored in the skinny shares category at Tampa Bay and is probablel favorite in the nightcap. Expect pilot Butler to sit in the garden spot for first crack on the leaders. SASSY PRANCE returns to the local turf course where she got in the money gimmicks in all five starts last season. FIRST EMBRACE and HOUSEMAKER are one dimensional runners. They will be arriving late to the party, and loom the late closing threats.
