1 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Waiver maiden claiming $50,000. Purse: $23,000.

1: Hey Funny (A.Canchari, Tracy Jr.)119/5-1

2: Cup o’ Tea for Me (Franco, Wolff)123/15-1

3: Zan Creek (Velazquez, Biehler)119/9-2

4: Rudys Cabello (Rosier, McShane)119/10-1

5: Northern Profit (Lermyte, Peters)119/20-1

6: Bold Prospect (Joubert, Hanson)123/5-1

7: Blazing Angel (Butler, Scherer)119/1-1

HEY FUNNY caught a muddy track last out and can use that as a excuse for flattening out badly. Might have found the right spot to break her maiden in 10th career start. BLAZING ANGEL appears to be the one to beat with Dean Butler aboard with her class edge. Turns back off the turf with five months rest but will need to spin her wheels early with lack of group speed. ZAN CREEK ships up from Oaklawn Park after a dull effort, coming back to home track could turn things around.

2 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance.

5: Copper Hill (Velazquez, Berndt)123/4-1

6: Or Sunday (A.Canchari, Diodoro)123/5-2

7: Bushrod (I.Hernandez, Oliver)119/12-1

OR SUNDAY could prove tough opponent with repeat performance of two back where he won by over six lengths, Diodoro/Canhari duo adds to the appeal. SWORD OF DAVID exits a front-running victory around two turns and might vie for command from the start coming off the rail. COPPER HILL too comes off a gate-to-wire routing and looks to have the speed to be in the front from the start.

3 About 5 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $14,500.

6: Yes by Gold (Goodwin, Sheehan)119/12-1

7: Rhetorical (Franco, Diodoro)119/2-1

FRIARCRACKER has been on the shelf for the past nine months but trainer Bravo has solid numbers off the long layoff and sprinting on the turf, might be good enough at a price if returns to form with his quick early speed. RHETORICAL has been sprinting on the main track for the last year and a half but posts some of his best numbers on the lawn. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him regain that form. PENDULUM jumps off the dirt and has the speed to be knocking heads early. Supports a win on the turf here last season.

4 Lady Slipper Stakes. 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Fillies and mares. Purse: $60,000.

1: Thunder and Honey (Carreno, Robertson)119/6-1

4: Rockin the Bleu’s (Franco, Biehler)123/2-1

5: Sioux Appeal (Butler, Robertson)123/6-1

6: Shaboom (Sanchez, Robertson)119/8-1

SKY AND SEA lost the lead late in the Lady Slippers Stakes last season and had to settle for show money. Has a race under her belt preparing for today’s feature and supports a bullet drill coming in. ROCKIN THE BLEU’S has encouraging work tab off the long layoff and looks ready to fire for the Biehler barn. Winner of MN Distaff Sprint last September. Stablemates THUNDER AND HONEY and SHABOOM, could slip in at nice odds if top two choices sacrifice themselves in a speed duel.

5 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Fillies and mares. Maiden special weight. Purse: $60,000.

7: Anzoo (A.Canchari, McShane)119/12-1

8: Kandy Sweep (Carreno, Brinson)119/6-1

Wide-open maiden voyage. DUN DANCIN has been on the sidelines for the past year but does bring speed to the race. Could get brave on the lead if goes unchallenged. FOLLOW THE SPIDERS most likely will be the post-time favorite and is one of only two runners who has raced in the past 40 days. Lone new shooter SOME SAY SO, has been working solidly and all systems say go.

6 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Fillies and mares. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,000.

8: Cats Magic Twist (P.Canchari, Bethke)119/20-1

9: Dazzlingsweetheart (Rosier, Sharp)119/3-1

Another wide-open maiden race, and it kicks off the late Pick 4. DAZZLINGSWEETHEART looks to be the real-deal-Holyfield with her unveiling. Her workouts coming in are very impressive. UNBRIDLED MAYHEM carried her speed last out for a good distance before fading at 7 furlongs. Should enjoy cutting back for short sprint. Trainer Broberg has solid numbers bringing his horses back off the long layoff so RODEOACTIVE is a must use even with only three works coming in. MORE MONA MORE has the speed to be in the front from the start and control her own destiny.

9: Justcallme Charlie (Sanchez, Rengstorf)119/5-1

10: Tavernonthecrow (Velazquez, Hartman)119/9-2

Usually rain isn’t too far away when DAKOTA NATIVE runs, catching a sloppy track last two out. Looks capable of stepping forward with a fast track and Alex Canchari aboard. DRINKINATTHEBAR has a couple starts this year and broke poorly in both, could improve with clean break. TAVERNONTHECROW cuts back to sprinting after a few failed attempts around two turns. Maybe he can dust himself off and come back running shorter. HATTIES JEWEL and JUSTCALLME CHARLIE are must use on your tickets.

8 About 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $20,000. Purse: $14,500.

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

9: Spirit Grabber (Carreno, Brinson)118/5-1

NORTHAMPTON KID supports the best numbers in this group running on the turf and will draw money at the window due to connections. SIOUX HOCKEY has slight class edge over today’s rivals and surely is fast enough to run with this group. SPIRIT GRABBER looks to be bred well for the turf and could surprise at a nice price with his first attempt on the lawn.

9: Flasha (Rosier, Berndt)123/10-1

10: Gentle as a Breeze (Escobar, Silva)123/8-1

Y YA GOTTABEDATWAY has been facing tons better out of state including two wins in last three starts. Strictly the one to catch to get the victory. WARREN’S NICHOLAS swooped by the field last out rolling late and clearing the field, major threat with present form. GENTLE AS A BREEZE switches surfaces for trainer Silva after winning last time out on the grass at Turf Paradise. Bred to handle any surface.
