10 Metaurus(L) 122 No Rider 2-3-5 Sciacca 4-1

1a Drink With Pride(L) 122 Ortiz 1-3-4 Gargan 10-1

Nineinthenine tallied solid final fraction when a clear-cut second last time; close call in contentious opener. Kingofthebluegrass drops and cuts back to more manageable trip; dangerous. Presumptive was an ultra-game second in last; big-time player. Screenplay consistently logs fast figures.

5 Chase My Tail(L1) 118 Castellano x-x-x Violette, Jr 2-1

1a Palestrina 118 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x McLaughlin 5-1

Predicate was purchased for $200k in February and shows improving work tab; best guess. Candy Kitty debuts for Pletcher; need more? Chase My Tail is by a high-percentage first-out sire; follow the money.

5 Jake's Magic Hat(L1) 118 Lezcano x-x-x Kenneally 6-1

6 Zalmon 118 Saez x-x-x Albertrani 12-1

Jake's Magic Hat compiled sneaky-good work slate; call in another juvenile crapshhot. None Like Nolan was bought for $135k as a yearling and could certainly be the goods for Pletcher. Breen entry: Oliver Zip and Solemnly Swear drilled fast half-mile in company on June 12; must respect if money shows.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Claiming $35,000. 3&up. Purse: $41,000.

1 Vinny Goodtimes(L1) 119 Castellano x-x-x Pletcher 5-1

8 Singing Monarch(L1) 119 Ortiz x-x-x Rodriguez 12-1

Main Track Only

9 Cat Man Fu(L) 124 No Rider 6-5-4 Horton, Jr 4-1

Captain Easy is speedy, gets class relief and should be tighter in second start since six-month absence. Matagot also drops and will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Ale is fresh and owns competitive numbers; right in the thick of this.

1 Mile. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $77,000.

1 Thisizsparta(L) 122 Castellano 7-1-5 Jacobson 3-1

3 Profetiza(L) 117 Lezcano 1-2-x Mott 9-5

4 Me Mandy(L) 122 Lezcano 10-1-x Chin 20-1

5 Malibu Holiday(L) 122 Velasquez 1-2-2 Heffner 7-2

6 Lady Kierkegaard(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 3-3-1 Clement 5-1

Malibu Holiday moves to dirt after hard charging score on turf last month; pairs up. Profetiza is rested and will prove a tough customer on a soft lead. Lady Kierkegaard could impact if pace gets fast and furious.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $31,000.

1 Let the Kitten Run(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 4-2-10 Englehart 5-2

8 A New York Phillie(L) 122 Ortiz 5-6-7 Ubillo 12-1

9 Belongs to Dixie(L) 122 Lezcano 6-4-1 Canani 7-2

10 Youngwildandfree(L) 117 Castellano 4-7-1 Contessa 12-1

Belongs to Dixie makes peak start of form cycle and packs solid late kick on 'A' game. Let the Kitten Run drops and gets added ground; big-time danger. Go the Distance regressed in last but could be a front-running threat on best; price will be tempting.

1 Mile. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $62,000.

2 Overextended(L) 122 Cohen 6-3-9 Schettino 15-1

3 Seal Team Four 117 Alvarado 1-2-10 Harty 6-1

7 Comandante(L) 117 Maragh 8-3-1 Trombetta 10-1

1a Read the Proposal(L) 117 Solis 4-1-x Violette, Jr 3-1

8 Ultimate Empire(L) 117 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-7 Albertrani 5-1

9 Charlie's Punch(L) 122 Saez 3-1-2 Ness 7-2

10 Seventy Six(L) 117 Espinoza 5-1-2 DeMola 8-1

Overextended wheels back in a hurry after sub-par effort in the mud last time; dry land is key. Comandante returns to dirt and should move forward in second start since January; very playable. Read the Proposal fired two 5-furlong bullets since last start; dangerous. Ultimate Empire was a dominant maiden winner in last; must consider. Bond Vigilante is training with a purpose for first start in 83 days; right in the thick of this.

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $64,000.

1 Papa Tom(L) 122 Lezcano 6-4-3 Ubillo 3-1

1a Warrior Up(L) 122 Prado 5-6-3 Ubillo 3-1

Jonrah notched swift final fraction when a clear-cut winner in last; more to come. Minnie Punt needed last, gets class relief and owns fast figures on 'A' game; worth long look at long price. The Thinker logged three tight works since hard-fought score in first start on Belmont sod; dangerous. Image of Disco can prove to be a front-running threat on best.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $29,000.

1 Sweetest Peach(L) 117 Tomas 7-5-7 Sciacca 50-1

2 Love Is Key Kaz(L) 124 Rodriguez 4-5-6 Polanco 10-1

3 See See See(L) 119 Jimenez 5-11-9 Shevy 50-1

8 Bargaining Table(L) 119 Castellano 3-6-4 Toscano, Jr 2-1

9 Snit Fit(L) 119 Maragh 4-4-2 Hess, Jr 5-2

10 Bunhead(L) 124 Ortiz, Jr 10-6-2 Badgett, Jr 6-1

Bunhead is fresh, training with a purpose and could be sitting on breakthrough in weak nightcap. Bargaining Table is speedy and may play out as the controlling front-runner. Snit Fit owns field's fastest final numbers on best efforts; could easily take this. Sweetest Peach hails from suddenly-live Gary Sciacca stable; price will be tempting.
