#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds

1: Conticinio (Murphy, Keen) 123 7-2

2: Cole Cole (Goncalves, Silva) 123 4-1

3: Kraftig (Carreno,Rhone) 123 6-1

4: Fuzzy Logic (Thornton, Heitzmann) 118 5-2

5: Clarisimo (Richards, Bethke) 123 12-1

6: Binky Hollow (Vergara, VanWinkle) 123 6-1

7: Mon Petit Pote (Butler, Keen) 123 5-1

FUZZY LOGIC cuts back in class and distance with good tactical speed and should manage good forward position behind pace setters. Never raced this cheap, so should enjoy the class relief. COLE COLE comes off a nice four-length margin win at this level drawing away from the field at Turf Paradise. Shippers from the Arizona track, had a solid start here last season. Trainer Dallas Keen, sends out the bookends with MON PETIT POTE and CONTICINO, both have encouraging work tabs entering.

2 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $25,00.

#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds

1: Hunterwood (Sanchez, Biehler) 119 5-1

2: Distort This (Hernandez, Lavanway) 119 6-1

3: Stoney Fleece (Richard, O’Callaghan) 119 5-1

4: Keep ‘Em Laughing (Eikleberry, Diodoro) 119 5-2

5: Sound Effect (Vergara,Diodoro) 119 4-1

6: Mysterious Noise (Butler, Rhone) 119 3-1

SOUND EFFECT was overmatched last out against tougher foes at Oaklawn Park. Figures to be in the hunt early and often and will be tougher opponent if rain takes the race off the turf. MYSTERIOUS NOISE rallied last out through traffic to get a victory on the Tampa Lawn. Talented enough to get consecutive wins out of the Rhone barn. KEEP’ EM LAUGHING, stablemate of Sound Effect, will strictly be the one to beat if race comes off the grass. Not a win machine, but will be tough if runs back to last speed figure.

3 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming. Purse: $32,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds

1: At My Discretion (Franco,Lund) 119 6-1

2: Pricelesscommodity (Sanchez,Padilla) 119 2-1

3: Why Frank (Richards, Oliver) 119 5-1

4: Countercyclical (Velazquez, Scherer) 121 8-5

5: Tribal Dreams (Butler, Walker) 123 7-2

COUNTERCYCLICAL deserves another chance after running against much tougher last out at Keeneland. Talented enough to let others do the dirty work in front of him before unleashing bid to attack. PRICELESSCOMMODITY has been training smartly off the five-month layoff including three bullet works. Will be rolling late so would benefit a heated pace. TRIBAL DREAMS is the one to catch and could lull the field to sleep if no one stays with him.

4 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $12,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds

1: Only Annie Peach (Eikleberry,Scherbenske) 123 3-1

2: Tilted Lady (Franco, Silva) 123 5-2

3: Hidden Edge (Velazquez,Biehler) 123 7-2

4: Chile Win (Golibrzuch,Miller) 123 8-1

5: Unbridled Ann (Olesiak,Ranwick) 123 20-1

6: Tactical Girl (Goncalves,Sweere) 123 5-1

7: Save Your Story (Carreno,VanWinkle) 123 6-1

TILTED LADY will have to work for it to get the win and rumor suggests she’ll be knocking heads with ONLY ANNIE PEACH in expected speed duel. I’ll give the slight edge to the lady, who reunites with her favorite jockey, Giovanni Franco. Only Annie Peach loves the local track but slight concern of only three wins in her career. TACTICAL GIRL looms the late closing threat in case speed duel gets too heated up front.

5 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $28,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds

1: Summer Tiger (Butler, Robertson) 119 5-1

2: Flashy Jewel (Hernandez, Brinson) 119 9-2

3: Unobtainium (Eikleberry,Diodoro) 123 4-1

4: Space Mine (Carreno, Diodoro) 119 6-1

5: Zippzapzapper (Velazquez, Biehler) 119 7-2

6: Sammy’s Mineshaft (Shepherd,Padilla) 119 12-1

7: Ready’s Gamble (Goncalves,Bethke) 119 20-1

8: R K’s Afleet (Murphy, Mankin) 123 10-1

9: Sassy Moe (Martin, Brinson) 119 5-1

Last year’s top trainer, Robertino Diodoro, sends out roommates SPACE MINE and UNOBTAINIUM. Space Mine begins racing career today with works suggesting he is cranked to go. Unobtainium’s lone start was a strong second-place effort. ZIPPZAPZAPPER will be flying late picking up the pieces and will be tough to fend off down the stretch. SUMMER TIGER and FLASHY JEWEL are must use on exotic tickets.

6 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $30,0000.

#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds

1: Reason’s Harvest (Velazquez,Scherer) 121 5-1

2: Princess Dinah (Shepherd, Padilla) 121 5-1

3: Star of Beauty (Murphy, Keen) 121 4-1

4: Catty N Sassy (Butler, Robertson) 117 8-1

5: Just Have’n Fun (Eikleberry,Diodoro) 121 8-1

6: Scoozi (Vergara, Diodoro) 121 7-2

7: Lady Paislee (Carreno, Robertson) 117 3-1

8: Undone Sweater (Keith, Berg) 121 15-1

LADY PAISLEE lone win in her four starts was in her debut here last summer. She has been facing tougher girls out of state and should enjoy the return to hopefully get things rolling again. SCCOZI is all speed shipping in from the West Coast and appears to enjoy the local track with a couple of speedy works. STAR OF BEAUTY should get perfect wind-tunnel trip sitting off the pace as the huntress. Has three wins in past five attempts.

7 5½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $36,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds

1: Royal Bluff (Delorme, Pfeifer) 123 10-1

2: Castle Queen (Martin, Tracy) 119 5-2

3: Silver Magna (Velazquez,Biehler) 119 3-1

4: Strength N Beauty (Carreno,Robertson) 119 4-1

5: Adorkable (Murphy,Hanson) 123 8-1

6: Starlet Stella (Franco,VanWinkle) 119 12-1

7: Kato Miss (Joubert,Hanson) 123 12-1

8: Bad River Belle (Butler,Rhone) 123 6-1

CASTLE QUEEN didn’t care for the synthetic track last out at the Woodbine track. Dull effort would be best description. Look for a speedy recovery back on the home field. BAD RIVER BELLE will be tailgating the expected heated pace with a nice view. Should be gathering momentum late from the outside draw. SILVER MAGNA has been working well for her 2015 debut in hopes of breaking her maiden with 4th career start.

8 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

1:Mr. Jerry (Murphy,Litfin) 119 8-1

2: Ya Mon (Sanchez,Perez) 123 3-1

3: Hijo Del Corredor (Keith,Biehler) 123 4-1

4: Wranger Reuben (Swiontek,Berg) 123 5-1

5: Matinee Idol (Thornton, Silva) 114 8-1

6: Run Hard Rhubarb (Franco,Lund) 119 6-1

7: Yes by Gold (Goodwin,Sheehan) 119 9-2

8: Initiative (Eikleberry,Diordoro) 123 8-1

HIJO DEL CORREDOR has good early speed in this wide-open maiden field nightcap, and could shake loose from the field with Lori Keith aboard. MR. JERRY takes significant class drop while turning back from route to sprinting. INITIATIVE might have found the perfect maiden field to start his introduction to racing as a 7-year-old? I’ll take a wait and see approach with him first.
