RACE ONE (DOUBLE -  3-7, 4-7 / PICK-5 - 3,4 w 7 w 2,3 w 2,4,8 w 6)

4-RICOS REVENGE...gave a bit of a hint in last showing nice pace on backstretch--:29.1. Can upset!

3-HOOSIER HAWK...pulled half way through mile and ducked in back of leader far turn. Consistent.

1-KABAM...went up in the air on backside in last while prominent. Flat mile would be dangerous!

RACE TWO                                              

7-PRAIRIE FORTUNE...came back with a vengeance in last with powerful win. Current form great!

3-DIAMOND DAGGER...tried cutting the mustard against the boys in last--nailed late. Off pace here.

4-MODERN MERCURY...”whupped” the girls in last quite handily from off the pace. In with the boys!

RACE THREE (PICK-6 - 2,3 w 2,4,8 w 6 w 5 w ALL w 7)

2-LILYS REAL BOY...been hot property lately. Was given rousing handling to win last. Right back!

3-TWIN B TK...post hindered in last but showed pace last 5/16s. Drew better. Winging on backside.

4-BALL DON’T LIE...does step up after good showing in last quick mile. Turns on afterburners late.

RACE FOUR (PENTAFECTA -  2,4,8 w 2,4,8 w 2,4,8 w 1,5 w ALL)

4-MASSACAIA...performed very nicely in top trot & now dips 2 classes to very appetizing situation.

8-KEYSTONE BODACIOUS...loved the qually in last. Put cards on the table with lifetime mark in a.m.

2-UNITALIANO BI...track record holder (3 yo tg) is very fast & very dangerous if he minds manners.

1-GOLD SAVAGE...tried cutting mustard in last but fractions caught up with him late. Better spot..



6-TWIN B SPIKE MAN...forgiving last. Can roll up boldly uncovered on occasion. Why in for “6” now?

1-CULINARY DELIGHT...post didn’t help matters in last but did leave a bit then was “even-steven.”

3-SAINT PATTY’S DOLL...has tons of back class and just needs to turn clock back to be prominent.

RACE SIX (PICK-4 -  5 w ALL w 7 w 4,6,9)

5-G’S HIGH SHOOTER...showed very strong back during backside quarter in last--:27.3. Rocks late.

4-RACE ME ROCKY...steps up a notch again after very serious showing of speed in last. On engine.

3-McMARVEL...got picture perfect journey in last, pulled final turn gnawing away. Held on dearly.


5-RAILEE WORKABLE...lost composure early in last but showed good trot after. Taking 1 more shot.

4-GOLDSTAR CLASSIC...first start of this semester was very good. Question is...What strategy here?

2-HOLY HALIBUT...former Open Trotter on comeback trail and dips down again in seeking the win.

RACE  EIGHT (DOUBLE - 7-4, 7-6, 7-9)

7-MY ROBERTO...got backed up in last before being able to shake loose. Showed good pace to wire.

3-DYNAMIC RAYZER...not much on paper but fits well here. Tried very hard in last double-bubbled.

1-VAN GUNDY HANOVER...back “home” again after claim back. Finds amiable situation + the rail.

RACE NINE (SUPER HI-5 - 4,6,9 w 4,6,9 w 4,6,9 w 5,5 w ALL)

4-WESTERN LEGEND...actually raced a brave mile while on the outside looking in. Giving edge here.

9-ANARCHY HANOVER...won last but was “DQ’d” so he makes the class again. Post does hinder.

6-ORLANDO’S EXPRESS...got vaught up in some hefty fractions in last. Hasn’t won in many moons.

5-SCARY HARRY...liked the backside move in last--:28.2--and kept on digging right to the finish.

8-SHIPPS XPECTANCY...$600,000 winner showed sharp gate speed in first start here. Yielding here.
