9Griffin Rock(L)121Velasquez4-3-2Imperio6-1

Harvest King is riding a forward line on the numbers and rates close call based on price potential. Awesome Bid ships in from south Florida and makes first start for Joe Lostritto. Griffin Rock is 0-for-34 but fits on 'A' game. Promised Destiny regressed in last but is a contender on best.

5Ode to Sami(L)116Alvarado5-1-3Contessa20-1

Cluster of Stars is 2-for-2 and could get the early jump in Correction field that's light on speed. Nicole H owns fast figs and is 5-for-5 on inner track; obviously can take this. Singlet was done in by wide trip in last; big-time player on best.

5Kelli Got Frosty(L)120Velasquez1-1-3Rodriguez8-5

Princess of Sylmar visually and numerically impressed when winning three straight. Kelli Got Frosty is fresh and could prove very tough as the main speed. Let Me Entertain U has benefit of rail and has trained strongly since winning last.

10Dee Dee's Comet(L)120Castro4-2-2Ryerson15-1

Hidalgo Legacy earned swift numbers when a stubborn second in last. Red Hook is rested and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; must respect. Maxana gets class relief and should improve with race under belt.

8China Gold(L)120Velasquez4-8-xMcLaughlin7-2

A Prettydixie regressed in the slop last time after game placing on dry land in prior; rebounds. Lara has trained consistently since non-effort in debut and hails from potent second-out stable. Curlin N Twirlin owns fast figs and makes peak start of form cycle.

9Good Karma(L)118Luzzi4-5-5Hernandez,Jr12-1

Sea to Sky bested a next-out winner when a dominant victor in last; more to come. Lemansky got feel of inner track last time and could easily take this if able to replicate effort two starts back. Warrior Up is right in the thick of this on best game.


6 Furlongs. The TOBOGGAN (Grade III). 3&up. Purse: $150,000.

5Mine Over Matter(L)120Alvarado2-3-1Hushion5-2

6Head Heart Hoof(L)118Velasquez1-3-1Rodriguez3-1

P J's Magical Wink chased sizzling splits in key race last time at Prx; speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Isn't He Perfect should pack amplified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs. Head Heart Hoof is fleet-footed and owns fast figs; very dangerous. Sinai logged swift final fraction when winning last; don't ignore.


11/16 Mile. The WITHERS (Grade III). 3yo. Purse: $200,000.

6Champion Boy(L)116Castro3-x-xGuerrero30-1

7Smooth Bert(L)118Luzzi1-5-1Gyarmati15-1

Escapefromreality owns sprinter's speed and could prove very tough to catch at juicy price in Withers. Revolutionary was ultra-impressive when breaking maiden in first start on inner track; prohibitive price is problematic. Long River gets the meds after regressing in Jerome; worth long look.

9Bo Champ(L)111Carson5-10-5Vassallo,Sr.30-1

10Purple Pico(L)114Tomas6-4-6O'Brien10-1

Raffie's Star gets class relief and favorable cutback and should pack intensified kick in wide-open nightcap. King Keene was an even fourth in last and logged crisp half-mile work in the interim; forward move predicted. Shy Humor was second in last and now makes peak start of form cycle; logical. Keyaly could impact with pace meltdown.
