9 Raglin River(L) 123 Maragh 4-4-4 Orseno 6-1

Slimshady is 0-for-17 buts packs potent late kick and owns razor-sharp current form. Hooked Forever moves to grass after firing half-mile bullet on Sunday. Gentle Jim's speed must be respected.

3 Noon Time Shower(L1) 119 Luzzi x-x-x Baker 4-1

3x Freud's Sunset(L1) 119 Saez x-x-x Galluscio 4-1

Alwaysinstilettos compiled bullet-riddled work tab at FL for debut; best guess. Artemis Agrotera logged strong training slate for Mike Hushion. Margaret Ownzit shows a string of 5-furlong drills for first start; charting a must.

One Mile and One Sixteenth. (Inner Turf). The YADDO. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $150,000.

1 Shakeira(L) 123 Rosario 6-1-1 Brown 3-1

2 Wholelottashakin(L) 116 Lezcano 5-1-4 Bush 12-1

3 Inimitable Romanee(L) 116 Prado 2-2-3 Motion 10-1

4 Dayatthespa(L) 120 Castellano 2-1-5 Brown 2-5

5 Sally's Dream(L) 116 Bridgmohan 1-1-4 Persaud 15-1

6 Love Stanza Chance(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-7 Albertrani 20-1

Inimitable Romanee was pace and position compromised when a willing second in last; rates call based on price potential. Dayatthespa is 2-for-2 at the Spa and owns speed and fast figs; could easily romp. Shakeira was a tough-trip sixth in last; more than good enough on best.

Six Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $80,000.

1 Delany Road(L1) 119 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Clement 5-1

3 Mahna(L) 119 Garcia 4-2-2 McPeek 3-1

4 Wundahowigothere(L1) 119 Prado x-x-x Terranova,II 5-1

5 Royalty(L) 119 Rocco, Jr 2-x-x Iwinski 15-1

6 Fevered Kiss(L) 119 Velazquez 5-3-x Mott 4-1

7 Laguna Girl(L) 119 Rosario 2-2-5 Orseno 5-2

Conzig notched career best late pace figure in last start and fired sharp 5-furlong breeze for return. Mahana earned fast numbers when second on dirt two starts back; very dangerous. Laguna Girl owns four seconds from five starts; prefers minor awards? Fevered Kiss displayed nice turn of early foot in both starts; right in the thick of this.

Five and One Half Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $80,000.

1 Fanfare(L) 119 Bridgmohan 2-6-4 Arnold, II 8-1

2 Aireofdistinction(L) 119 Velazquez 3-3-5 Asmussen 5-2

3 Sweet Potato(L) 119 Napravnik 5-2-x Toner 4-1

5 Cavetto(L1) 119 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Clement 8-1

6 Cool Flame(L) 119 Prado 5-x-x Shirreffs 8-1

7 True Courage(L) 119 Castellano 5-x-x Brown 5-1

8 Iroquois Girl(L) 119 Rosario 3-2-2 Nicks 3-1

Sweet Potato logged tight work tab for first start since May and should pack intensified late kick at abbreviated dash. Iroquois Girl is fleet-footed and could play out as the main speed in turf debut. Fanfare is fresh and should be aided by shorter trip.

Seven Furlongs. 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $90,000.

1 Praetereo(L) 121 Velasquez 1-4-3 Jacobson 8-1

2 Brigand(L) 121 Rosario 6-5-1 Baffert 5-2

3 Say No More(L) 121 Maragh 3-4-7 Keogh 15-1

4 Souper Speedy(L) 121 Lezcano 4-1-1 Albertrani 9-5

5 Private Tale(L) 121 Castellano 7-7-2 Trombetta 10-1

6 Love to Run(L) 121 Alvarado 3-1-3 Kimmel 6-1

7 Saturday's Charm(L) 121 Velazquez 2-4-4 Asmussen 5-1

Private Tale adds blinkers, turns back to more appropriate distance and fired two half-mile bullets since last start. Souper Speedy was scorched by sizzling splits last time; more than good enough with softer flow. Praetereo won last and now makes first start since claimed by white-hot DAS/Jacobson tandem; price will be tempting.

7

One Mile. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $41,000.

1 Bebes Passion(L) 119 Jimenez 11-6-10 Goberdhan 50-1

8 Love Is Key Kaz(L) 123 Lezcano 7-2-4 Polanco 8-1

9 Notional Girl(L) 119 Prado 6-5-x Ubillo 12-1

Main Track Only

10 High Inflation(L) 119 No Rider 4-5-4 Antonucci 6-1

Love Is Key Kaz gets rider upgrade after being victimized by wide trip and soft fractions last time. Notional Girl is lightly raced and drops to lifetime low; dangerous. Coriander makes peak start of form cycle and first outing with a maiden claiming tag; could easily take this.

Five and One Half Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $82,000.

2 Handoverthecat(L) 117 Napravnik 1-x-x Motion 7-2

1 Revenue(L) 121 Saez 1-5-3 Ness 6-1

3 Ballistic Sue(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 7-3-5 Barbara 10-1

4 Kiss Me Lola(L) 121 Solis 1-3-2 Lewis 3-1

5 Quiet Ending(L) 121 Lezcano 1-2-3 Clement 5-1

1a Caution Sign(L) 121 Saez 1-4-3 Ness 6-1

6 Strategic Missile(L) 121 Ortiz 3-3-2 Feron 8-1

7 Spun Silky(L) 121 Rosario 1-3-2 Saville 4-1

8 Sheza Heartbreaker(L) 121 Velasquez 4-2-1 Sciacca 15-1

Main Track Only

9 D'princess(L) 121 Castellano 2-1-4 Servis 3-1

10 Natalie Victoria(L) 121 Castellano 4-1-5 Levine 2-1

Kiss Me Lola was unfazed by fast fractions when a pace-pressing maiden winner the first time she touched Spa sod; more to come. Ballistic Sue owns bullet-like speed and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Quiet Ending packs solid late kick and will be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

1 So Scott(L) 118 Rosario 1-5-2 Jacobson 5-1

3 Zetterholm(L) 118 Alvarado 4-4-1 Nevin 5-1

5 Most Happy Fella(L) 118 Solis 3-6-1 Schosberg 12-1

6 Groomedforvictory(L) 120 Castellano 4-1-6 Maker 4-1

7 Awesome Vision(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 2-3-4 Albertrani 2-1

Zetterholm logged string of endurance building works for first start since June of '12; primed and ready. Groomedforvictory adds blinkers, owns speed and swift numbers; big-time threat. Bigger is Bettor is 2-for-2 at Saratoga; must be factored into mix.

Five and One Half Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $43,000.

2 Imperial Robyn(L) 121 Alvarado 8-5-1 Green 15-1

4 Superiority(L) 121 Maragh 6-11-5 Persaud 20-1

7 Silent Pipe(L) 121 Albarado 2-3-3 Scherer 10-1

8 Luigi P(L1) 121 Espinoza 6-6-3 Multari, Jr 20-1

9 Jagati(L) 121 Lezcano 1-6-1 Kenneally 8-1

10 Make a Fortune(L) 121 Cohen 5-5-3 Jacobson 3-1

Main Track Only

11 Regal Strike(L) 121 No Rider 2-5-5 Gullo 5-1

1a Irish Lion(L) 121 Castellano 7-4-6 Jacobson 5-2

1x P J's Magical Wink(L) 121 No Rider 4-1-6 Jacobson 5-2

Make a Fortune makes third start since layoff and handles any footing. Alcomatch was a clear-cut winner in last and is a hot commodity at the claim box; very playable. Awakino Cat was second in last two starts; logical player. Silent Pipe should pack enhanced kick with cutback to abbreviated dash.
