Post time: 12:45 p.m. Best bet: Mr. Jagermeister (8th race). Best play: 50-cent Pick 4 (8th): 6/2-6/all/all, $42.00.

1 Minnesota Quarter Horse Derby. 400 yards. State-bred. 3-year-olds. Purse: $45,000.

1: Givinitalittleeffort (Delgado, Hardy)124/7-2

2: Pyc Jess Bite Mydust (I. Velazquez, Olmstead)124/8-5

3: Bbs Pyc Luckycharm (Hamilton, Olmstead)124/12-1

7: Curious James (F. Johnson, Wilson)124/20-1

8: Pollitical Eye Apeal (Goodwin, Hardy)124/10-1

PYC JESS BITE MYDUST has been runner-up last three out, so a bit concerning. Last chance to get first win of the summer. GIVINITALITTLEEFFORT has been first or second money in three starts. VODKA AT MOONLIGHT won two back, then followed it up with a hangover effort. Will be a battler if on her game.

2 Minnesota Quarter Horse Futurity. 350 yards. State-bred. 2-year-olds. Purse: $45,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Eos Marie Leveau (Delgado, Hardy)122/9-2

2: This Trains Rockin (Delorme, McKinley)122/10-1

3: Chicks an Cash (Suarez Ricardo, Black)122/12-1

8: Its Big Pappa to You (F. Johnson, Wilson)122/20-1

9: Jamalie (Hamilton, Hardy)122/10-1

10: Streak N Sparks (Arroyo, Haglund)122/20-1

DICKEY BOB had consecutive wins before finishing off the board last out in futurity race. Time to make amends. EOS MARIE LEVEAU is always there and comes in with top connections. ITINKICAN ITINKICAN is a consistent money-maker for a barn that has been getting hot.

3 About 7½ furlongs. Turf. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $16,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Fear Fighter (A. Canchari, Robertson)124/3-1

2: Divine Mandate (Hernandez, Silva)119/10-1

11: Tahkodha Royale (Mawing, Sheehan)118/20-1

12: The Saint (O. Mojica, Sweere)124/6-1

13: Zero (Lindsay, Rhone)124/20-1

TAVERNONTHECROW reunites with the sod where he gives his best performances. Class relief and veteran jockey could get him home at a price. FLOKI didn’t embarrass himself in first turf effort last out and is the one to beat off that third-place finish. BLUES ORBIT changed running style last out, going for the lead but giving way late. Expect the same, and trying to milk out the clock.

4 Minnesota Distaff Sprint Championship. 6 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $60,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Shaboom (Loveberry, Robertson)117/9-2

2: Honey’s Sox Appeal (A. Canchari, Robertson)123/7-5

3: Fiona Cat (O. Mojica, Rengstorf)117/6-1

4: Rockin the Bleu’s (Stevens, Michael Biehler)123/9-5

5: Shipmate (Sanchez, Broberg)113/8-1

HONEY’S SOX APPEAL is the defending champ for the Minnesota Distaff Sprint. Not really facing a group of monsters here and reunites with Alex Canchari, who was the pilot for last year’s win. Stablemate SHABOOM, who will be stiff competition, has had her best efforts on the turf. ROCKIN THE BLEU’S failed to factor last out off the bench. Should improve second time out.

5 Minnesota Distaff Classic Championship. 11⁄16 miles. State-bred. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $60,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Blues Edge (Ramgeet, Rhone)117/15-1

2: Blazing Angel (A. Canchari, Scherer)117/20-1

3: Sioux Appeal (Hamilton, Robertson)117/6-1

4: Pinup Girl (Mawing, Sweere)114/6-1

5: Some Say So (O. Mojica, Becker)123/5-2

6: Double Bee Sting (Loveberry, Rengstorf)118/8-5

7: Strength N Beauty (Hernandez, Gordon)117/5-1

DOUBLE BEE STING won the Oaks last effort by six lengths and is clearly the one to beat in the Distaff Classic. Filly will be up front with the runners before attacking. SOME SAY SO will fire out of the gate and be part of the pace battle to get things rolling. Does her better running on the grass but could get a minor award. STRENGTH N BEAUTY won by 14 lengths two back with the claimers but then ran subpar last out against tougher. Possible factor if she can dig up that effort from two back.

6 Northern Lights Debutante Stakes. 6 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies. 2-year-olds. Purse: $85,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Papa’s Isla Doll (Loveberry, Rengstorf)122/4-1

2: Arnold’s Patsy (Delorme, Rhone)117/12-1

3: Firstmate (Hamilton, Sharp)117/8-1

8: Blackberry Brandi (A. Canchari, Broberg)122/12-1

9: Cabloosie Bay (R. Mojica, Heitzmann)117/5-1

10: Cheerz to Clare (Goodwin, Berndt)122/3-1

11: Born Pretty (P. Canchari, Silva)117/20-1

CABLOOSIE BAY lost to today’s rail runner, PAPA’S ISLA DOLL, last out at 4½ furlongs. I think she’ll appreciate the six furlongs in the Northern Lights Debutante Stakes. Papa’s Isla Doll will depart from the inside draw with dazzling speed and is the one to catch to get the win. CHEERZ TO CLARE won in frontrunning fashion last out for a clear margin victory. Could be tough to pull off today, exiting from the far outside, with so much speed to the inside.

7 About 11⁄16 miles. Turf. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $35,500.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: The Great Casby (Stevens, Van Winkle)124/8-1

2: Devil’s Teeth (Goodwin, Scherer)119/15-1

7: Reigning Warrior (A. Canchari, Scherer)124/10-1

8: Fireman Oscar (Loveberry, Van Winkle)119/2-1

9: Smooth Stroke (Delgado, Rarick)124/5-1

FIREMAN OSCAR won two back on the turf with a strong late surge. Implication is there is a lot left in the tank for today’s longer distance. SMOOTH STROKE should gun it out of the gate in an attempt to take control on the lead. Barn and jockey have had a slow go, but there’s not much speed in the field to challenge them. PLENTY OF SUN is a consistent runner and should be involved when things get interesting.

8 Northern Lights Futurity. 6 furlongs. State-bred. 2-year-olds. Purse: $85,000.

10: Water Patrol (Loveberry, Schindler)117/10-1

11: Smooth Criminal (O. Mojica, Silva)122/12-1

The Northern Lights Futurity goes through MR. JAGERMEISTER. Speed figures tower over the field, and he won by nearly 12 lengths in lone local start. Expect MAGIC COWBOY, BRYSONS CONFESSION and FAMILIAR RHYTHM to duke it out for the minor awards.

9 Minnesota Sprint Championship Stakes. 6 furlongs. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $60,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

4: Smooth Chiraz (Loveberry, Bravo)119/8-1

5: Fridaynitestar (D. Velazquez, Berndt)119/8-1

6: Hold for More (O. Mojica, Bravo)123/9-5

7: Bourbon County (Hamilton, Robertson)117/9-2

HOT SHOT KID has done nothing wrong in his past five starts, including two big wins in stake races. The 3-year-old has earned over $200,000 in purse money and gets the nod in the Minnesota Sprint Championship. HOLD FOR MORE, a 5-year-old, is the all-time leading money-maker in the history of Canterbury Park. Much repect for the morning-line favorite. BOURBON COUNTY has been off his best game but won this race in 2014 and 2015.

10 Minnesota Classic Championship Stakes. 11⁄16 miles. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Purse: $60,000.

4: Vanderbilt Beach (Loveberry, Rengstorf)117/9-2

5: Speed Is Life (Mawing, Oliver)117/4-1

6: True West (Hernandez, Robertson)117/8-1

7: Teddy Time (Hamilton, Robertson)123/7-2

A P IS LOOSE returns to routing and seeks to turn the tables on SPEED IS LIFE, who beat him by a neck in last year’s Minnesota Classic. Fast pace should wake him up to rally along the fence. Speed Is Life hasn’t had a win since last year’s title but can’t be taken lightly defending his crown. TEDDY TIME does his best running on the lawn but is no slouch on the dirt. Winner three back on the off track.

11 6 furlongs. State-bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $50,000. Purse: $23,000.

2: Not Justa Somerset (Loveberry, Rhone)124/4-1

3: Fireball Y’all (O. Mojica, Riecken)124/4-1

4: Hollywood Kid (Sanchez, Bravo)124/5-1

5: Poverty Flats (Mawing, Anderson)124/5-2

6: Xans Storm (Joubert, Hanson)124/3-1

POVERTY FLATS appears to be the lone speed of the bunch and will go as far as he can on the lead to the wire. XANS STORM will be rolling late but will need someone to push the top choice to arrive on time. HOLLYWOOD KID and FIREBALL Y’ALL are first-time starters supporting strong regular work schedules coming in.
