Main Track Only

3 Shades of Indygo(L) 118 Franco 8-3-2 Ryerson 4-1

Winner's Legacy makes peak start of form cycle after logging improved late pace figure in last. Rachel's Temper was second to a dominant winner in last; dangerous. Touch of Snow fired two bullet works since stateside debut last time; improvement expected.

1a Conspiracy(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-3 Contessa 5-2

7 Village Warrior(L) 119 Velazquez 1-8-3 Pletcher 3-1

Springcourt owns fast final fractions and could be aided by today's additional furlong. Village Warrior was a front-running winner in last and could play out as the main speed once again. Sinorice is 2-for-4 on Spa soil and has the benefit of the rail; dangerous.

5

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Allowance. Purse: $75,000.

1 Take It Inside(L) 120 Velasquez 1-7-4 Gorham 5-1

8 Silver Silence(L) 120 Davis 6-3-10 Farrell 15-1

9 Life's a Stage(L) 120 Rocco, Jr 7-4-3 Serpe 4-1

Life's a Stage packs potent late wallop and hails from streaking Phil Serpe stable. Take it Inside was a front-running winner in last on Delaware sod and could capitalize on clear lead once again. Lady Kreesa has yet to take a backward step on the numbers in four starts; right in the thick of this.

51/2 Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Claiming $40,000. Purse: $62,000.

Main Track Only

5 Dighton(L) 124 No Rider 4-7-3 Farro 5-1

11 Attractive Ride(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-3 Falcone, Jr 2-1

Partly Mocha regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; rebounds. Jess Not Jesse chased sizzling splits and paid the price last time; 5-for-7 record on Spa sod is imposing. Flashlight is speedy and should be aided by cutback to sprint.

1 Star of New York(L) 120 Arroyo 4-4-2 Quick 12-1

8 Be Bullish(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 4-2-4 Jacobson 3-1

9 Taxplayer(L) 115 Rice 8-5-8 Sedlacek 30-1

Star of New York owns solid late pace figures on best efforts and rates close call based on price potential in wide-open dash. N. F.'s Destiny, a wire-to-wire winner in last at FL, is a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead. Won Great Classic logged two most recent wins when fresh and rested; very interesting. Be Bullish drops and owns very fast figs on 'A' game.

1 Willow U(L) 119 Arroyo 5-2-6 Ubillo 6-1

8 Milkyyourway(L) 120 Ortiz 2-2-2 Schettino 3-1

9 Keen Katana(L) 114 Rice 1-5-9 Toner 7-2

Thatza Wrap delivered solid efforts in both turf starts and is training with a purpose for first outing in 69 days. As Well also is working sharply and packs potent late kick on best; dangerous. Takeoff Your Hat logged stamina-enhancing 7-furlong work since last start and gets class relief today; right in the thick of this.

16 Sweetpollypurebrd(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 2-x-x Rodriguez 4-1

Sweetpollypurebrd logged two, 5-furlong works since clear-cut placing in debut. My Super Nova fired half-mile bullet on the Saratoga surface on Aug. 11; stay tuned to tote. Madoo and Golden Starlet debut for Rick Violette; charting a must.

7 Vero Amore(L) 117 Velasquez 10-8-12 Reid, Jr 2-1

9 Faith Hall(L) 117 No Rider 1-2-2 O'Connell 6-1

Nisharora was pace compromised when an even fifth in U.S. debut; improvement predicted. Granny Mc's Kitten upped record to two wins and a second in three starts on Spa sod when a determined victor in last; very dangerous. Miss Frost is riding a two-race winning streak; must consider.

11

51/2 Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $83,000.

1 Galroyale(L) 119 Velasquez 3-5-7 Rice 6-1

12 Earth to Matilda(L) 119 Franco 8-x-x Terranova 20-1

Main Track Only

13 Believeinfaith(L) 119 Arroyo 3-7-2 Antonucci 6-1

Galroyale turns back to sprint and should find already powerful late kick amplified. Zindaya owns speed and is firing bullets for first start since February; very playable. Golden Maria also is fleet-footed and working sharply; price will be tempting. Korite is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; worth long look.
