1a Longride to Wisdom(L1) 119 Lezcano x-x-x Bush 4-1

1x Sleek(L1) 119 Castellano x-x-x Hushion 4-1

7 Queen Mercury(L) 121 Rosario 4-4-9 Toscano, Jr 3-1

7 Red Code(L) 116 Franco 6-7-7 Antonucci 10-1

Dust Em Mick adds blinkers, returns to turf and should pack amplified kick at abbreviated dash. Saropia will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Regal Joanne is speedy, rested and drops; must consider.

9 Bradester(L) 117 Lezcano 1-1-2 Kenneally 7-5

One More Cat logged two works since even third last out; forward move predicted. Winning Cause bested top selection by more than two lengths when a hard charging winner in last; very dangerous. Sayaad owns speed and could play out as the controlling front-runner.

1 Giant Indian(L) 121 Alvarado 5-6-9 Adsit 15-1

7 Tuvia's Force(L) 121 Napravnik 2-4-3 Zito 2-1

Talk Therapy ships in after pairing up fast-figured wins at FL. Cinnamon Beach has been idle for 257 days but packs potent late kick on 'A' game. Itsagoodtendollars makes first start since claimed by Gary Contessa; must consider.

9 Lara(L) 119 Ortiz 3-6-8 Levine 3-1

Main Track Only

1x Suzenshine(L) 119 NR 4-10-x Rodriguez 4-1

With Diamonds drops and looms the dominant speed. Absolute Paradise should pack intensified kick with cutback to sprint. Lara makes first turf start with maiden claiming tag; right in the thick of this.

7

1 Easement(L) 119 Solis 8-7-3 Jerkens 4-1

7 Foggy Road(L) 119 Castellano 2-8-5 Rodriguez 6-1

8 Cowboy Prince(L) 119 Rosario 2-10-6 Contessa 8-1

Foggy Road gets confident price hike after tallying solid late pace figure when a clear-cut second in last; two recent works seal the deal. Apex earned fast final number when second to a runaway winner in last; big-time threat. Cowboy Prince set hot pressured pace in key race last time; worth long look.

13 Reign 119 Prado x-x-x Motion 6-1

Main Track Only

14 Go West Marie(L1) 119 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Gullo 10-1

Zip On is speedy and now sheds the blinkers and moves to turf; breakthrough predicted. Super Sky made strong rally after poor start in debut; must factor into mix if able to escape AE list. Ruslana is fleet-footed and gets the meds; could easily take this.

11/8 Miles. 3yo. NY Bred. THE ALBANY -- BIG APPLE TRIPLE -- THIRD LEG. Purse: $150,000.

1 Ego Friendly(L) 117 Rocco, Jr 6-4-7 Kimmel 20-1

5 Seventy Six(L) 121 Napravnik 1-5-1 DeMola 12-1

6 Go Get the Basil(L) 119 Garcia 4-2-3 Violette, Jr 6-1

Amberjack notched rapid late pace and final figs when winning NY Derby last time; more to come. Smooth Bert was a distant second to top selection last out; same outcome today? In Harm's Way owns sprinter's speed and must be factored into exotics.

10

11/8 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $41,000.

1 Slick Daddy(L1) 123 Luzzi x-x-x Reynolds 30-1

10 Hezro(L) 119 Maragh 5-2-6 Maker 10-1

Main Track Only

11 Privatize(L) 119 NR 5-6-6 Gyarmati 3-1

Disaster Relief logged swift final fractions in both starts; drop to maiden claiming ranks is the clincher. Fiddlers Chico is riding a forward line on the numbers; big-time player. Rakete gets class relief and makes peak start of form cycle; dangerous. Horse Latitudes owns speed and should improve in second start since three-month layoff.
