6: Well Heeled Magoo (Richard, Fennell Jr.)124/8-1

7: Apollitical Chick (Goodwin, Johnson)124/7-5

DASH FOR THE REMEDY ran a hard-fought third in lone start showing good early speed. APOLLITCAL CHICK has worked well off the extended layoff. TRICKY TIP has solid work tab for her unveiling.

2 400 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $27,500.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bf Farm Boy (Eikleberry, Harris)126/9-2

5: Thirty Six Belles (Goodwin, Johnson)126/8-1

6: Xoom (Pinon, Hardy)126/5-1

7: This Wagons Okay (Torres, Charette-Hill)126/2-1

BF FARM BOY has class edge and experience over his rivals and gets Eikleberry to ride. WICKED VALENTINE returns to 400 yards where he excels. R DIVA ran second to next-out winner last out.

3 Victor S. Myers Stakes. 6 furlongs. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds. Purse: $60,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Keith’s Legacy (Sanchez, Rengstorf)122/7-2

2: Hold for More (Butler, Bravo)122/1-2

3: Prayintheprairie (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)122/10-1

4: Rocknlikahurricane (Martinez, Robertson)122/10-1

5: Chris Mars (Escobar, Rhone)122/6-1

HOLD FOR MORE ran for career-best speed figure last effort coming from off the pace with driving win. KEITH’S LEGACY appears to be the main threat to top pick and will be gunning for his third consecutive victory. PRAYINTHEPRAIRIE has a fighting chance if he can get by with soft fractions on the lead.

4 Frances Genter Stakes. 6 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies. 3-year-olds. Purse: $60,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Gold Cup Skier (Sanchez, Bravo)122/12-1

2: Strength N Beauty (Martinez, Robertson)122/15-1

3: Sioux Appeal (A. Canchari, Robertson)122/7-2

4: Silver Magna (Velazquez, Biehler)122/4-1

5: Shaboom (Butler, Robertson)122/4-5

6: North Sky (Eikleberry, Rhone)122/8-1

SHABOOM has been mighty impressive with easy wins in both starts; no reason to slow down here. NORTH SKY has the best opportunity for the upset but will have to step it up to get the job done. SIOUX APPEAL has three wins in four starts and enters off a bullet drill.

5 5 furlongs. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $35,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Wildcat Moon (Becerra, LaVanway)119/10-1

2: Voodoo Spell (Martinez, Robertson)119/5-2

3: Boji Moon (Butler, Richard)119/7-2

4: Hazardous (P. Canchari, O’Callaghan)119/8-1

5: Uno Pecador (Sanchez, Perez)119/5-1

6: Castletown (Carreno, Diodoro)119/4-1

7: Rockin Home (Franco, Van Winkle)119/5-1

VOODOO SPELL should get the snappy pace scenario to roll late with his strong closing kick; has six wins in past seven starts. ROCKIN HOME is the one to catch to get the win. Dueled last out in stakes race settling for place honors. CASTLETOWN is an obvious danger who usually gets a share.

6 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $30,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Smoltz (Velazquez, Berndt)119/7-2

2: Bad Behavior (Delorme, McFarlane)121/8-1

3: Nesterenko Ridge (Sanchez, Rhone)121/6-1

4: Flying Frank (Murphy, Padilla)117/5-1

5: Sunday Prohibition (Martinez, Rengstorf)117/9-2

6: True Ten (Carreno, Diodoro)121/2-1

7: Perfect Majestic (Eikleberry, Biehler)117/10-1

TRUE TEN cuts back in distance and should get the perfect view of the frantic fractions to swoop on. SMOLTZ went gate-to-wire last out and is destined to duel with a couple of today’s rivals. NESTERENKO RIDGE won two back sprinting on the main track and will be pushing the pace from the start.

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

1: Socratical (Reid, McFarlane)119/5-1

2: Mec Dancer (Martinez, Rengstorf)119/12-1

9: Purest Form (Butler, Robertson)123/5-2

10: Pendulum (Sanchez, Padilla)119/8-1

11: Hume (Murphy, Hawley)119/20-1

12: He’s a Rockstar (Carreno, T. Anderson)119/20-1

13: Just Happened (Vergara, D. Anderson)119/20-1

PUREST FORM didn’t disappoint as the favorite last out after a three-month layoff. Could prove tough opponent off that effort. PENDULUM will keep Purest Form honest up front with good early speed. Reduction in distance will make him tough to fend off. GRAND AVENUE looms as off-the-pace threat at a square price.

8 5 furlongs. Fillies. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $28,000.

9: Majesticact (Velazquez, Biehler)118/8-1

10: Cake Baby (Vergara, Diodoro)118/6-1

PUNKY B has more bullets than Bonnie and Clyde’s car with her workouts in the morning; should be ready to fire first time out. POSSE UP ran a strong second in her debut but will now have to stretch that out another furlong and a half. CAKE BABY drew even but came up empty on the stretch run in her debut; look for her to break alertly with more lasting power.

9 7½ furlongs. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $28,000.

15: Bluffs Edge (Butler, Rhone)123/12-1

16: Shock the Clock (Eikleberry, Lund)123/8-1

I’ll give GIANT SWING a big shot at winning his debut at first asking. Bred well for grass and has been training lights-out. BATTLEBACK JOHN came from the clouds after getting hung out to dry on the turn but got up for second best; tough closer with clear trip. NORTHAMPTON KID has been on the bench since February but has been training smartly for his return.

10 5½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $4,000. Purse: $10,000.

10: Cassidilly (Hernandez, Bera)123/5-1

11: Meloveda (Becerra, Bends)123/20-1

MY PLACE OR YOURS should enjoy cutting back a half-furlong shadowing the electric pace for first attack. Hung late last out after losing lead. SECRET OF SUCCESS is all speed and the one to catch to get the win. SERIOUS GRAY and ONLY ANNIE PEACH should appreciate the class relief in hopes of turning things around.

9: So Contagious (Vergara, Anderson)119/15-1

10: Limeshare (Fackler, Riggs)121/20-1

Wide-open affair to end the day. PROCEED BEE could make trouble up front and could be long gone if he can somehow find his old form on the turf. Possible lone speed at a big price makes him my price play. ASTARFORBUSH had a rough start but finished well in his last turf effort. LITTLE WAGON and TWELVE TRIBES are major players who deserve respect.
