6 Superiority(L) 122 Cohen 2-3-5 Persaud 5-2

7 Patriotic Duty(L) 116 Maragh 5-3-6 Persaud 5-1

Tycoon Cat consistently logs field's fastest late pace figures and could receive ideal setup in weak opener. A. F. Hennessey earned swift internal and final numbers when winning last and looms the main speed once again. Luxury Appeal owns speed and fast back numbers; must consider.

2 Lucci the Lion(L) 118 Ortiz 2-1-4 Rodriguez 7-2

2b All Jonesy(L) 120 Ortiz 1-6-x Rodriguez 7-2

S'maverlous visually and numerically impressed when winning debut; rates close call in contentious dash. Jacobson entry: Leilani's Ticket is sharp and logs fast figures and mate Much Stronger has won three of last four; potent pairing. Lucci the Lion is fresh and training with a purpose; right in the thick of this.

1 Mile. (Turf). Starter Optional Claiming $35,000. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $53,000.

1 Hoboken Honey(L) 119 Saez 5-1-3 Servis 10-1

2 Veturia(L) 119 Castellano 1-2-1 Brown 2-1

3 City Gone Wild(L) 119 Velasquez 1-3-3 Rice 6-1

4 Stick to Your Guns(L) 119 Alvarado 1-7-5 Contessa 5-2

5 Mystic Rhyme(L) 119 Castro 4-1-6 Contessa 8-1

6 Bozique(L) 119 Morales 7-2-1 Quick 20-1

7 Al's Rosie(L) 119 Maragh 1-5-5 Levine 5-1

8 Exchange Cat(L) 114 Coa 1-6-5 Rice 12-1

Stick to Your Guns overcame soft pace and wide trip when a clear-cut winner in turf debut; more to come. Veturia was a front-running winner on dirt last time and is bred to handle switch to sod; very playable. Al's Rosie logged deceptively fast late pace figure in lone grass start; worth long look.

8 Dixie Sparkle(L) 113 Coa 4-4-3 Friedman 8-1

9 Eva Lil 124 Laredo 8-9-7 Smith 50-1

Cherylwithans adds blinkers and makes first start since claimed by Jamie Ness; rates close call. Ms. True Way displayed improved speed when a game second in last; very dangerous. Dixie Sparkle is riding a forward line on the numbers.

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $20,000. NY Bred. Purse: $29,000.

1 Galaxy Gal(L) 119 Franco 4-2-2 Chatterpaul 15-1

2 My Lucky Lieu 118 Luzzi 3-3-4 Toscano, Jr 12-1

3 Ferritto(L) 119 Rodriguez 2-6-6 Hushion 7-2

4 Binsky's Gold 118 Maragh 3-x-x Jerkens 9-2

5 My Golden Girl(L1) 124 Saez x-x-x Bond 6-1

6 Brickhouse Baby(L) 118 Castro 2-3-8 Violette, Jr 5-2

7 Little Gabby Girl(L) 118 Ortiz 2-3-5 Brown 3-1

8 Fu Peggi Sue(L) 111 Tomas 7-9-10 Hertler 20-1

Galaxy Gal makes quick comeback after spinning her wheels in the slop last week; worth another chance. Ferritto endured fast fractions and intense pressure when a game second in last; could easily take this with softer front-end flow. Little Gabby Girl was a strong second as the favorite in last; logical, short-priced player once again.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 4&up. Purse: $66,000.

1 Be Bullish(L) 118 Alvarado 6-3-4 Jacobson 7-2

2 Hardened Wildcat(L) 118 Castellano 5-4-3 Brown 5-2

3 Leave of Absence(L) 118 Ortiz 3-2-5 Violette, Jr 15-1

4 This Ones for Phil(L) 118 Maragh 2-6-2 Rodriguez 7-5

5 Shrewd One(L) 118 Bravo 3-1-1 Serpe 4-1

Hardened Wildcat packs strong late kick on 'A' game and compiled eye-catching work tab for first start in 132 days. This Ones for Phil was a willing second in last and owns fast back figures. Shrewd One is rested and shows a history of delivering strong efforts off the bench.

1 1/16 Mile. (Turf). 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $24,000.

1 Kittylicious(L) 120 Castro 12-7-6 Sciacca 30-1

2 Miss Libby(L) 113 Tomas 4-6-4 Aquilino 30-1

3 We Need V L T's(L) 120 Lezcano 4-4-3 Miranda 15-1

7 Mon Rose(L) 120 Maragh 5-6-6 Persaud 20-1

8 Ezpz Lemon Squeeze(L) 120 Espinoza 7-4-4 Bush 7-2

9 Princess Mara(L) 120 Saez 5-5-3 Asmussen 5-1

Main Track Only

10 Romin Robin(L) 120 Cohen 9-3-3 Jacobson 2-1

11 Evan's Rocket(L) 120 Maragh 5-6-5 Jerkens 6-1

Princess Mara gets class relief, makes peak start of form cycle and could be sitting on breakthrough in good betting race. Ezpz Lemon Squeeze is 2-for-2 on Big A sod and drops in return from South Florida; very interesting. Romin Robin owns very fast turf figs but takes precipitous price plunge; fire sale? Bay Head Beauty is speedy and should be favorably positioned near the front in big field.

6 Furlongs. Starter Optional Claiming $50,000. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $51,000.

6 Sing Dixie Sing(L) 116 Coa 1-5-8 Jerkens 3-1

7 Nifty Shindig(L) 121 Velasquez 1-3-3 Jacobson 5-1

Sheza Classy Lady tallied rapid final fraction when a hard-charging winner in last; more to come. D'princess is fleet-footed and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Nifty Shindig makes first start since claimed by David Jacobson after sailing to 10-length score in last; could easily pair up.

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

12 Lucky Vida(L) 119 Coa 8-x-x Duggan 8-1

13 Sweetest Peach(L) 117 Tomas 5-7-7 Sciacca 30-1

14 Acrobatic Tactic(L) 118 Alvarado 10-4-9 Englehart 8-1

15 Bay Road(L) 118 Alvarado 10-2-x Domino 8-5

Shewreckstheplace was pace and trip compromised when making first start since five-month layoff last out; makes forward move today. Nothin But a Dream owns speed, adds blinkers and could play out as the controlling front-runner in turf debut. Ivanovna was a late-running third in same last race as top selection; right in the thick of this. Bay Road drops and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.
