No. 3 Avicii drops in her first start for this barn and gets the hard trying James Graham in the irons. No. 4 Always a Chance gets her first start off the big win and first off the Adam Kitchinman claim. No. 6 Two Step Flor is the speed and will try and hold off the top two, she also exits the same race as Always a Chance. 3-4-6
$62,500 maiden 2yo travel five furlongs and we will need to do some board watching or just hit the all button. The three we like the best are No. 1 Mitzi Winks a first time Lookn At Lucky filly out of the hot barn of O’Neill and she has a nice last work and gets Bejarano; No. 3 Scarlet Emerald will go better today in start number two on the drop but she loses Bejanano who opts for Mitzi; No. 4 Amare is a first timer who looks live for D’Amato. 1-3-4
No. 2 Cornbred Red ran very good as a 2yo and now makes his 3yo debut. No. 4 Know Plans is the stablemate of Red and he exits our HTW list. No. 7 Kristi’s Copilot also ran good as a 2yo and he makes his 3yo debut off a string of good works. 2-4-7
No. 2 Second Proposal comes back South after a trip to New Mexico and Turf Paradise, he looks live. No. 4 The Cleaners drops of the Hess claim but he puts his go to jock up. No. 5 Fighting On is the stabalemate of The Cleaners and he gets the drop also. No. 8 Jet Warrior comes off the layoff but was very good last year. 2-4-5-8
No. 7 Admiral Jaxon exits our HTW list. He looked ready to win last out but the gate opened before he was loaded and he was declared a non starter, he is spotted for the win. 7
Win and place 7
No. 4 Princess Kendra drops and will like the extra half a furlong today. No. 8 Briana Jean is sitting on the maiden breaker. 4-8
No. 2 Indecise comes off the layoff for papa Mandella with a string of serious works for this mile turf race. No. 4 Istanford loved this course last year when she won both of her starts, she was set to go on the grass here on July 18th but the rains came. 2-4
Exacta box 2-4 and win and place 2
In an ugly last race we get $20k maidens claimers going a mile on the dirt. No. 1 Bargaining is a first time starter who was scratched last week for this easier spot. No. 3 Jens de Ville was also scratched last week for this much easier spot. 1-3
