6 Haverhill(L) 118 Cohen 6-3-1 Jacobson 3-1

7 Lure of the South(L) 118 Maragh 5-8-7 Brown 15-1

Lure of the South logged two of three lifetime wins on the inner track and is ideally suited to 9-furlong trip. Pure Attitude is riding a two-race winning streak for Rudy Rodriguez; very dangerous. Itsagoodtendollars is speedy and will prove very tough on an uncontested lead.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $20,000. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $28,000.

6 Vinhdication Spot(L) 114 Zayas 4-7-3 Ferraro 10-1

7 Lil Tiffy(L) 121 Morales 2-2-2 Matties 3-1

High Inflation is 0-for-18 but was done in by poor start in last and should offer best price potential of the contenders. Lil Tiffy has finished second in last three starts; continues trend? Legally Bay is rested and notched fast figure last April; don't ignore.

4 Keep in Mind 111 Zayas 5-1-4 Miranda 30-1

5 Appearance(L) 120 Cohen 2-5-1 Jacobson 5-2

6 Andromeda's Risk(L) 118 Franco 1-x-x Brown 6-1

7 Fast 'n' Firm(L) 118 Montanez 4-5-1 Ryerson 10-1

Andromeda's Risk was a clear-cut winner at 41-1 in debut and barn excels with recent maiden victors. Longrideto Wisdom was a determined maiden winner just eight days ago and now makes first start since claimed by Gary Contessa; very dangerous. Jump Two was a fast-figured second in last at Lrl; right in the thick of this.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $50,000.

1 Perfect Disco(L) 121 Montanez 8-x-x Galluscio 5-2

2 Giulio Cesari 121 Lopez 8-4-x Sciacca 12-1

3 Brass Pear(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 6-3-3 Sedlacek 7-2

4 Ronnie's Whey(L1) 121 Luzzi 4-6-x O'Brien 3-1

5 You Jane(L) 111 Strandberg 4-x-x Ubillo 10-1

6 Mike and Bill(L1) 121 Velasquez x-x-x Englehart 5-1

7 Sir Maurice(L) 114 Carson 2-6-2 Scott 6-1

Perfect Disco was a tough-trip eighth in debut and should move forward with race under belt. Brass Pear is speedy and could play out as the swiftest of the swift with aggressive ride. Ronnie's Whey gets the meds after besting top selection by nearly six lengths on New Year's Day; big-time threat.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Claiming $12,500. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $25,000.

1 First Penny(L) 118 Garcia 2-6-7 Sciacca 8-1

2 Rain Forest(L) 113 Rice 3-9-5 Jacobson 6-1

3 Wise Choice(L) 118 Teator 8-8-12 Sciacca 30-1

4 Blossom's Trail(L) 120 Maragh 6-1-4 Persaud 7-2

5 Just Do It Please(L) 118 Montanez 3-7-2 Ryerson 3-1

6 Merryland Moon(L) 118 Castellno,Jr 4-2-7 Perillo 4-1

7 She's Gosphel(L) 113 Esquivel 4-3-2 Gullo 4-1

8 Exclusive Sarah(L) 113 Zayas 6-3-11 Thompson 12-1

Merryland Moon failed to threaten after being squeezed at the start last time and owns field's best late kick on 'A' game. Just Do It Please ships in for streaking Jim Ryerson barn after late-running third in last; dangerous. She's Gosphel is a front-end threat on best efforts; must consider.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Purse: $50,000.

1 Noon Time Shower(L) 120 Garcia 5-4-5 Baker 5-1

2 Zafiro Azul(L) 120 Velasquez 5-6-6 Bush 12-1

3 Regifting 113 Carson x-x-x Fisher 30-1

4 Saharan Serenade 115 Esquivel 5-x-x Toscano, Jr 12-1

5 Just Catty(L1) 120 Maragh x-x-x D'Alessandro 20-1

6 Saturday Bliss 120 DeCarlo x-x-x Weaver 8-1

7 Keep Right(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 2-2-x Kimmel 2-1

8 Heavenly Girl(L1) 120 Franco 7-x-x Brown 12-1

9 La Dama de Hierro(L) 120 Morales 7-6-6 Shevy 20-1

10 Prairie Stone(L1) 120 Luzzi x-x-x Brown 10-1

11 Piccolo Flats(L1) 120 Castellno,Jr x-x-x Brown 4-1

La Dama de Hierro gets favorable cutback in distance after displaying newfound speed in last. Zafiro Azul runs late in routes and should pack intensified kick with cutback to sprint. Keep Right has finished second in both starts; logical, short-priced player.

1 Mile. Allowance. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $57,000.

1 Penthouse Party(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 3-7-7 Eppler 5-1

2 Concealed(L) 118 Lopez 6-2-3 Miranda 5-1

3 Prize Taker(L) 118 Rodriguez 6-1-2 Baker 12-1

4 Gendarmour(L) 118 Maragh 3-5-5 Kimmel 4-1

5 Uman Candy 120 Franco 2-1-4 Iselin 9-5

6 A Prettydixie(L) 113 Esquivel 7-4-7 Kelly 8-1

7 Hope for Tomorrow(L) 118 Castellno,Jr 5-8-4 Schettino 15-1

8 Milkyyourway(L) 118 Arroyo 3-7-6 Schettino 8-1

Gendarmour was a useful third in first start since two-month layoff and owns foundation on the final figures; forward move predicted. Uman Candy bested top selection by more than 11 lenghts when an ultra-game second last time; bounces today? Concealed was dueled into defeat in common Jan. 11 heat but can prove a speedy threat on best.

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. The LADIES. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $100,000.

1 Teen Pauline(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-3 Pletcher 8-5

2 Firenze Feeling(L) 116 Franco 1-1-3 Rodriguez 8-1

3 Flash Forward(L) 116 Cohen 6-3-2 Schettino 6-1

4 Centring(L) 119 Maragh 2-2-2 Albertrani 5-2

5 Royal Lahaina(L) 123 Velasquez 3-1-4 Pletcher 3-1

Centring was pace compromised when second behind Teen Pauline last time; reverses decision in small Ladies Handicap field. Teen Pauline took advantage of soft front-end flow when winning Affectionately last time; regresses today? Flash Forward is fresh and owns fast-figured win at 9-furlong trip; price will be tempting.

1 Mile. Claiming $20,000. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $35,000.

1 Precious Metal(L) 118 Cohen 5-5-2 Englehart 7-2

2 Indy Tune(L) 118 Montanez 6-4-7 Grusmark 8-1

3 Purge Bird(L) 118 Rodriguez 4-3-1 Acquilano 5-1

4 Five Freedoms(L) 118 Camacho, Jr 6-2-1 Conway, Jr 20-1

5 Warrior Up(L) 113 Strandberg 7-8-8 Ubillo 15-1

6 Audies Champ(L) 113 Rice 3-6-1 Esler 12-1

7 Pin Number(L) 118 Lopez 6-1-5 Galluscio 6-1

8 Tycoon Cat(L) 118 Arroyo 5-1-2 Rodriguez 7-5

9 Closingtothewire(L) 118 Studart 6-7-9 Reiff 50-1

Purge Bird tallied swift final fraction when racing wide in key race last time. Precious Metal exits sprints, fired half-mile bullet on Monday and could play out as the speed on the fence. Tycoon Cat never got into the game in the mud last out but logged fast-figured win in prior; bounce-back potential. Indy Tune makes peak start of form cycle; don't ignore.
