1: Cal’s Pal (Velazquez, Scherer)118/5-2

2: Solar Star (Mello, Rhone)123/12-1

6: Panela’s Secret (Carreno, Rhone)118/15-1

7: Greeley’s Gazette (Hernandez, Donlin)123/8-1

WANAMINGO has yet to race this cheap in her brief career and looks every bit a top contender with the class relief; style is to sit off the pace within striking range. GREELEY’S GAZETTE seems to be a natural fit on the front end and comes off a head bobbing lost on the turf last out. CAL’S PAL is usually in the mix but in merry-go-round fashion; needs to step it up a notch to get the top spot.

2 About 7½ Furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $28,000

11: Starship Omega (Goodwin, Herb)123/30-1

12: Charming Key (Lopez, Jr., Sweere)119/15-1

BELLAMY RUN has been second best the past two spins in very game defeats after rallying wide; could move forward with point A to point B trip. SHOCK THE CLOCK and IMPERIAL TEA exit the same race as Bellamy Run finishing right behind with strong closing kicks; expect both to come on strong in the stretch run.

13: Mutually Exclusive (Delorme, Oliver)123/10-1

14: Skirts On Fire (Velazquez, Heitzmann)118/12-1

KITTEN DE PERE got blocked last out in final turn as the favorite and finished off the board; strong turf outfit and must expect a better trip with Franco remaining aboard. LEMONSRGOODONGRASS has hit the board in each race this summer and was caught late in last effort; one to fear down the stretch. HALEY’S COMET and MISERABLE BLUE are legit players and talented enough to get the job done.

4 6½ Furlongs. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $10,000. Purse: $17,000

1: Bet Your Socks (Franco, Rhone)123/12-1

2: Mon Petit Pote (Butler, Keen)119/4-1

6: Secretsatmidnight (Carreno, Diodoro)119/2-1

7: Diesel’s Prize (Mello, Hemba)119/8-1

8: God Of War (Escobar, LaVanway)119/15-1

SECRETSATMIDNIGHT plunges to lowest level of his career after a fourth-place finish in the Manitoba Mile last out; big class edge over the field with good early speed makes him tough to beat. NATIONAL will loom the late closing threat and should benefit from contested fractions to swoop on; exits tougher fields this summer meet with the slight drop in class. MON PETIT POTE should get his usual stalking trip behind the front runners pushing the pace; money maker all summer including a couple of wins.

5 1 Mile 70 Yards. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $10,000. Purse: $10,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Clever Endeaver (Richard, Rarick)123/20-1

2: Prince Demidoff (Goncalves, Bethke)123/6-1

3: Hrishi Suprem (Nolan, Bethke)123/10-1

9: Triple Threat (Butler, Rhone)118/4-1

10: Dame Steely (Arroyo, Backhaus)123/20-1

TRIPLE THREAT drew away by six lengths last effort as the heavy favorite and like his progress with loads of confidence coming in at a generous price. PRINCE DEMIDOFF should get similar trip as he did last out cruising in mid-pack before making final threatening move getting up for second best; must consider off that effort. BOLD ENTRY has been facing much better this season and now drops in for a tag; tough to figure out but looks like the one to beat.

6 5½ Furlongs. Fillies and Mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $6,250. Purse: $10,500

10: Aunt Lucy (Mello, Martin)119/20-1

11: La Reina de Iowa (Hernandez, McShane)123/15-1

PRINCESS GINA is the lukewarm M/L favorite in a wide open race but should be compromised by quick fractions to close on with top jockey Goncalves aboard. MIZZEN IN ACTION returns to sprinting after tiring badly last out at two turns against better out of state; expect a better performance in this short sprint. SHOW ME QUICK led late after swinging five wide last spin but was caught and settled for place honors.

7 1 Mile. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $30,000

6: Sunday Prohibition (Stevens, Rengstorf)116/8-1

7: Permit to Carry (Hernandez, Silva)116/20-1

8: Major Player (Butler, Rhone)116/15-1

SEEK THE NOBLEST stretches out to two turns after after a commanding driving win last out at 6 1/2 furlongs; seems to be screaming for more yardage. SAMMY’S MINESHAFT ran career-best last out at today’s distance and could prove tough with repeat effort; worry of a bounce lingers. PURIMETER and CAROUSE must not be taken lightly with a lot progress coming in.

9: Scat ‘n Go (Sanchez, Tracy, Jr.)123/10-1

10: Talk the Walk (Mello, Lund)123/5-1

AUGUST DAY comes off his first win of the season drawing away from the field; has quick early foot to push the fractions for his takeover. COMMAND THE LAND projects as the one to catch but has had a knack for the minor awards weakening late.TALK THE WALK is as consistent as anyone in this group and warrants respect; expect to come out firing from far outside post.
