8 Jazzington(L) 111 Coa 7-1-11 Miceli 5-1

9 Tina's Note(L) 122 No Rider 5-2-8 Kelly 3-1

The Winged Venus is rested and packs solid late kick on best grass races. Proud Dame fired 5-furlong bullet for first start in 47 days; very interesting. Should Make It is speedy and could prove a tough foe on a soft lead.

6 Bedouin Now(L) 118 Velasquez 2-3-5 Jacobson 3-1

Craqui could play out as the main speed in first start for David Jacobson. Bedouin Now, also from Jacobson barn, will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Concorde's Peace was victimized by wide trip in last; worth long look.

5 In Todd We Trust(L) 120 Velasquez 5-6-2 Jacobson 6-5

6 Sunrise Lover(L) 113 Franco 8-4-4 Jones 12-1

My Two Great Kids may have needed last and fired crisp half-mile work in the interim; rates close call. Imaginary Island logged four tight drills since breaking maiden in last; very playable. Burning Flame is fleet-footed and must be given a serious chance.

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

1 Fairy Snow(L) 111 Franco 3-x-x Persaud 15-1

6 Gamble(L1) 118 Chamafi x-x-x Donato 12-1

7 Too Much Scat(L1) 118 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Kenneally 6-1

Imreloaded set hot fractions when a game second in last; speed of the speed with aggressive handling. Deterrent compiled three tight works since fast-figured third in last; very dangerous. Abra has failed as the favorite in both starts but takes potent class drop today; could easily take this.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $35,000. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $35,000.

1 Jersey Ace(L) 113 Rodriguez 10-5-x D'Alessandro 15-1

8 Joe Alan(L) 118 Silvera 4-x-x Zito 9-2

9 Ballybrit 118 Fragoso 9-x-x Turner, Jr 30-1

Joe Alan has trained with a purpose since tough-trip fourth in debut; close call in field that's jammed with newcomers. Hooked Forever regressed in last after top-figured placing in prior; could easily take this with bounce-back effort. Lucky and Cool shows work tab that culminated with crisp half-mile from the gate; follow the money.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $31,000.

1 Saltamontes(L) 118 Rosario 4-4-6 Rodriguez 9-2

9 Positive Pitch(L) 118 Luzzi 5-3-5 Levine 6-1

10 Sheza Classy Lady(L) 118 Velasquez 2-3-1 Jacobson 3-1

Kiki Chacer could play out as the swiftest of the swift in field that's loaded with speed. Sheza Classy Lady looms the prime beneficiary if fractions get fast and furious. Anecdote holds razor-sharp current condition; right in the thick of this.

11/16 Mile. (Turf). 4&up. Fillies & Mares. Purse: $46,000.

1 Sally's Dream(L) 118 Silvera 5-5-3 Persaud 7-2

2 House On Toilsome(L) 118 Alvarado 2-1-2 Reynolds 10-1

3 G. A. Empress(L) 118 Hill 7-5-4 Arriaga 30-1

5 Swakopmund(L) 113 Rodriguez 3-8-1 Hushion 4-1

6 Inquiring(L) 120 Cohen 1-7-2 Antonucci 15-1

7 My Sparky(L) 118 Fragoso 1-1-5 Weaver 5-2

8 Sheza Heartbreaker(L) 118 Ortiz 3-2-4 Sciacca 3-1

1a File Gumbo(L) 118 No Rider 3-1-3 Persaud 7-2

Sally's Dream was a hand-ridden winner the last time she set foot on the Big A sod; rail draw seals the deal on tight-turned turf course. My Sparky exits a pair of front-running scores on dirt and could play out as the controlling speed once again with switch to grass. Sheza Heartbreaker is rested and owns fast turf figs on 'A' game.

1 Mile. Starter Optional Claiming $25,000. 4&up. Purse: $51,000.

1 Assured Victory(L) 118 Maragh 3-3-2 Brown 3-1

5 Giant Indian(L) 118 Morales 4-4-3 Adsit 5-1

6 Photon(L) 118 Cohen 2-5-6 Englehart 9-2

Photon tallied her lifetime best number this surface and distance this past November; gets ideal setup in probable pace dynamics. Induce fell victim to sizzling splits last time; big-time threat. Talk Therapy is more than good enough on best efforts; small but contentious field.

9 Forever for Always(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 8-x-x Antonucci 12-1

10 Luvacat 124 Luzzi 3-5-7 Morrison 10-1

Also Eligible

11 A Prettydixie(L) 118 Castro 2-3-2 Kelly 7-2

12 Bunhead(L) 124 Chamafi 2-6-10 Badgett, Jr 9-2

Silver Mast is 0-for-28 but notched career top figure on Big A sod and will offer juicy ticket. Stock Fund owns very swift numbers and compiled eye-catching work slate for first start since August; short price is the problem. A Prettydixie and Bunhead are both on AE list, but each must be factored into the mix if to scratch into body of the race.
