Race 1

No. 3 Billy Big comes off the layoff for D’Amato who can get a fresh runner to fire first out, he sends this gelding down the hill and he should love the trip. No. 5 Mr. Hinx is on a win every other race pattern and this is his win race and he is one for one down the hill and a perfect 3 for 3 sprinting. 3-5

Race 2

This is a very wide open $50k maiden claimer for fillies and mares with several comebackers and one first time starter. The only first time starter is No. 1 Unlucky Hillary. There are three comebackers in No. 2 Norwegian Spy for Mark Glatt, No. 3 Tiki Bar Logic for Mike Machowsky and No. 6 Colonel Peggy Sue for Art Sherman, our best advice is take a shot with those four or hit the all button. 1-2-3-6 (all).

Race 3

Since we had the wide open third race we will take our shot here and single No. 7 Mondaymorningblues who exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, all systems are on go. 7**

Race 4

No. 6 Hi Heat Boy is the one to beat in this $50k maiden claimer going a mile on the grass as he drops from straight maiden races and gets a big break in the weights. No. 5 Warren’s Fandango exits a key race and could wake up in this spot with Tyler getting back on board. 6**-5

Race 5

With a ton of early speed in this mile dirt race we will use two that will be sitting back. No. 1 Infobedad is on a win every other race pattern and this is his win race, he has been going 1-1/4 and a 1-1/2 look for him to sit today and make one run down the lane. No. 3 Madiba gets the bug boy Roman who will be sitting chilly off the hot pace, he fits at this level on the drop. 1-3

Race 6

$12,500 claimers travel six furlongs. No. 10 Oh Newman gets off the grass and drops to a level that makes him the one to beat. No. 2 Royal F J still has run in those 10 yo legs. No. 8 Juansagain gets his first start off the Peter Miller claim and is the speed of the race. 10**-8-2

Race 7

Optional $40k claimers go down the hill. No. 5 Doc Curlin has a nice work off the 2 month layoff for Baltas, he exits a tough race and will get a good early pace to make his late run. No. 3 David’s Memory exits the same race one back and is the speed. 5**-3

Race 8

In this little handicap race for 3yo and up that have started for a claiming price of $10k or less in the last two years we will need to go four deep using No. 4 I’ll Wrap It up who is in top form and has been meeting stronger, No. 5 City Steel we can say the same about, No. 6 Shackleford Banks who is in from the Gate and No. 7 Ain’t Misbehavin who exits the same race as City Steel. 4-5-6-7

Race 9

Maidens go down the hill and we will key on two runners in here. No. 3 Insubordination who showed he can race last out and No. 6 Mor Candy the speed who exits the same race. We will key them with No. 5 Decarchy Dawn a first time starter for Hess and No. 8 Highlight Show who exits a key race and gets a turnback in distance. 3-6 with 5-8
