9 Rich Hero(L) 122 Cohen 6-6-4 Antonucci 15-1

10 Devoted Wildcat(L) 115 Tomas 6-7-5 O'Brien 20-1

Real Estate gets class relief after speed and fade in last; 3-furlong bullet on Sunday seals the deal. Crushin Rock could be in the catbird seat if pace meltdown ensues. Temecula Creek makes first start since claimed by David Jacobson; more than good enough on 'A' game. Devoted Wildcat owns speed and solid back numbers; price will be tempting.

8 Soul House(L) 116 Maragh 1-x-x Weaver 5-1

9 Reggie D(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 5-2-6 Gullo 15-1

Reggie D took backward step in last after game second in prior; rebounds. Do I Amuse You was a front-running winner in last and could play out as the main speed once again. Master Cip is speedy and owns fast figures; very dangerous.

1 In Rocky's Honor(L1) 118 Castro x-x-x Ryerson 20-1

7 Doc Cebu(L) 118 Maragh 10-4-x Pletcher 12-1

8 All Alex(L) 118 Velasquez 10-4-2 Rodriguez 4-1

King Balthasar, a half-brother to two grass winners, moves to turf for potent second-out stable. Red Supreme has worked three times since making sustained rally when fourth in debut; very playable. All Alex logged fast numbers on GP sod this past winter; right in the thick of this.

1 Posse Baby 118 Laredo 6-x-x Prine 20-1

7 Street Swagg(L) 124 Cohen 3-2-2 Lostritto 5-2

8 Greeley Pack(L) 124 Ortiz 9-2-5 Feron 6-1

Sandy'z Slew has trained sharply since earning improved pace figure in last; more to come. Street Swagg failed as the favorite in last but tallied swift numbers in prior two outings. Crackerjack Jones debuts for Mike Hushion; follow the money.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $60,000.

1 Miz Owell(L) 118 Fragoso 10-7-x Kelly 20-1

Main Track Only

11 Isn'tshewonderfull(L) 118 No Rider 7-2-x Tagg 5-2

12 Genteela(L) 118 No Rider 8-4-4 Kimmel 3-1

Stock Fund was a tough-trip second in last and fired two crisp works in the interim. Chrissy Girl was victimized by wide trip in last; worth long look. Celesta was a clear-cut second in most recent; dangerous.

6

6 Furlongs. Claiming $35,000-$25,000. 3&up. Purse: $50,000.

1 Laysh Laysh Laysh(L) 121 Velasquez 3-7-3 Jacobson 3-1

2 Shankopotamus(L) 121 Maragh 7-3-5 Levine 5-1

6 Island Sunset(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 2-5-4 Galluscio 5-1

7 Crown the Chief(L) 122 Castro 2-3-4 Sciacca 7-2

8 Little Wyatt(L) 122 Ortiz 5-9-5 Kenneally 15-1

Laysh Laysh Laysh consistently logs the field's fastet final fractions. Island Sunset was a strong second in local debut; big-time player. Game Token should pack amplified kick with cutback to sprint.

7

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). The FORT MARCY (Grade III). 3&up. Purse: $150,000.

1 Speaking of Which(L) 118 Velasquez 14-2-3 Clement 2-1

2 Real Solution(L1) 118 Maragh 2-6-1 Brown 3-1

3 Lubash(L) 118 Alvarado 2-4-4 Clement 7-2

4 King Kreesa(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 3-10-4 Englehart 5-1

5 Bombaguia(L) 118 Ortiz 2-6-5 Kimmel 4-1

6 Abilio(L) 118 Solis 4-6-2 Albertrani 15-1

Lubash logs fast late pace figures with machine-like regularity; rates close call. King Kreesa will prove very tough on a soft lead and owns two wins and two seconds in four starts on Belmont sod. Real Solution gets the meds for stateside debut; very interesting.

8

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $62,000.

1 Front(L) 118 Maragh 1-7-3 Jerkens 10-1

2 Hyman Roth(L) 116 Luzzi 1-3-7 Hushion 10-1

3 Beyond Empire(L) 116 Velasquez 3-1-x McLaughlin 3-1

7 Mr Algebra(L) 122 Ortiz 4-8-3 Rodriguez 10-1

8 Toy Cannon(L) 122 Alvarado 2-2-1 Mott 7-2

9 Noosh's Tale 116 Solis 5-5-1 Kelly 20-1

10 Ghostly Vision(L) 116 Cohen 4-3-2 Schettino 12-1

Gossip Column was seriously overmatched in last at GP and tallied only career win on Belmont grass last spring. Noosh's Tale logged three tight works for first start since January; price will be tempting. Beyond Empire owns fast dirt figs and is from a dam that's produced two turf winners.

9

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). The BEAUGAY (Grade III). 3&up.

Fillies and Mares. Purse: $150,000.

1 Hessonite(L) 117 Alvarado 1-5-1 Donk 5-1

2 Ruthenia(L) 117 Castro 4-4-4 Clement 12-1

3 Suroof(L) 117 Solis 1-2-4 Wolfson 15-1

6 Pianist(L) 117 DeCarlo 5-1-4 Brown 6-1

7 Dream Peace(L) 117 Ortiz 3-3-2 Brown 6-5

8 Dealbata(L) 117 Maragh 9-2-2 Brown 5-1

Main Track Only

9 Centring(L) 117 No Rider 2-4-5 Albertrani 8-5

Hessonite compiled eye-catching training tab for first start in 196 days; will need 'A' game in ultra-contentious Beaugay. Ruthenia packs potent stretch kick on best efforts; dangerous. Dealbata owns win and a second in two starts on Belmont turf; right in the thick of this. Dream Peace was third in Grade I Flower Bowl at Belmont last fall; must consider.

10

11/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $29,000.

1 Lion Aint Easy(L) 118 Lezcano 5-x-x Contessa 15-1

10 Vice Squad(L) 113 Coa 4-8-x Bush 12-1

11 Dupay 118 Sone 4-3-9 Iorio, Jr 20-1

12 Randi'sapproval(L) 117 Franco 5-12-6 Persaud 50-1

Main Track Only

13 Retired(L) 118 No Rider 3-2-7 Brown 5-2

Polaris Dream makes first grass start with a maiden-claiming tag; weakness of field is selection's strength. Uncle Mitcho gets rider upgrade after even fourth in turf debut; dangerous. Fastinov takes potent class drop; worth long look at long price. Brandy's Big Guy is improving and makes peak start of form cycle.
