8 Joking(L) 122 Alvarado 5-3-1 Albertrani 4-1

Thomas Hill packs potent late kick on best and fired two, sharp half-mile works for first start in 150 days. Bernie the Jet could play out as the controlling speed with aggressive ride; very dangerous. Odea owns fast dirt numbers; handle with care at short ticket in turf debut.

1 Mile. Starter Optional Claiming $16,000. 3&up. Purse: $50,000.

1 Dynamic Host(L) 121 Velasquez 6-1-1 Jacobson 7-2

1a Point Taken(L) 121 Alvarado 2-4-1 Jacobson 7-2

8 Magic Harbor(L) 121 Ortiz 2-3-1 Rodriguez 3-1

Magic Harbor holds sharp current condition and is favorably posted in big field. Jimanator owns field's fastest final figures but has been idle for 438 days; mixed message. Sacred Ground is a last-race winner that's likely to offer a generous price; worth a look.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Purse: $74,000.

1 Vexor(L) 122 Cohen 4-2-5 Kimmel 20-1

2 Consortium(L) 122 Castro 5-4-1 McLaughlin 1-1

5 Capetown Devil(L) 122 Velazquez 1-4-4 Hess, Jr 8-1

6 Honorable Dillon(L) 116 Lezcano 5-7-1 Kenneally 2-1

Vexor displayed improved speed in last after logging solid final fraction in prior; close call in small but contentious group. In the Beat was a clear-cut winner in last and now makes first start since claimed by Dominic Galluscio; big-time threat. Consortium owns speed, fast figs and gets class relief; could easily take this.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Claiming $65,000. 3yo. Purse: $49,000.

1 Inmyfathersimage(L) 120 Chamafi 6-4-2 Contessa 10-1

8 Make It Gold(L) 120 Castellano 6-8-3 Servis 3-1

9 Gridiron Great(L) 120 Saez 4-7-x Tagg 5-2

Gridiron Great compiled four tight works since late-running fourth in GP debut; moves forward. Pass the Tap holds sharp current form and makes third start since seven-month layoff; very playable. Make It Gold was pace and position compromised in last; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $15,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $30,000.

1 Stellaluce(L) 122 Alvarado 2-3-3 DiPrima 10-1

2 First Penny(L) 115 Tomas 6-3-5 Sciacca 30-1

3 File Gumbo(L) 122 Cohen 4-3-1 Persaud 7-2

6 World Premier(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 6-4-3 Levine 4-1

7 Elusive Jozi(L) 122 Maragh 3-2-4 Friedman 5-2

8 Delightful Dawn(L) 122 Saez 4-2-4 Canani 5-1

9 Irish Lady(L) 122 Lezcano 4-3-1 Englehart 12-1

Delightful Dawn drops and gets favorable cutback to sprint; rates close call. File Gumbo looms the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Heathers Prayer, a last-race winner, is another that would be aided by hot fractions.

11/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Starter Optional Claiming $16,000. 3&up. Purse: $50,000.

1 Chairman Now(L) 121 Ortiz 6-1-3 Englehart 20-1

2 Anaphylaxis(L) 121 Solis 1-2-2 Hizo 30-1

3 Matt and Jesse(L) 121 Espinoza 5-1-7 Ortiz 50-1

4 Rustler Hustler(L) 121 Lezcano 5-2-1 Cibelli 4-1

5 Kingofthebluegrass(L) 121 Maragh 2-4-5 Trombetta 6-1

6 J W Blue(L) 121 Velasquez 1-4-5 Jacobson 6-1

7 Tawaared(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 1-7-4 Barbara 5-1

8 Best Actor(L) 121 Saez 3-5-3 Toscano, Jr 15-1

9 Julius Geezer(L) 121 Castro 1-4-1 Saville 6-1

10 Punster(L) 121 Alvarado 1-4-1 Martin 15-1

11 Major Marvel(L) 121 Castellano 4-1-1 Maker 5-2

Main Track Only

12 Willy Elliot(L) 121 No Rider 3-4-2 Rodriguez 4-1

13 Bail Out the Banks(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 2-1-9 Canani 7-2

Kingofthebluegrass was victimized by soft fractions and wide trip when a willing second in last. J W Blue, a dominant winner in last, owns fast dirt numbers; must consider. Punster exits game score in last and owns fast back numbers; dangerous. Tawaared and Julius Geezer are two more last-race winners that must be factored into the mix in wide-open race.

7

1 1/4 Mile. (Inner Turf). The OWSLEY. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $90,000.

1 Kya One(L) 120 Maragh 4-4-1 Brown 5-1

2 La Conquerante 118 Castellano 3-3-1 Brown 5-2

3 Suroof(L) 120 Solis 1-2-4 Wolfson 12-1

4 Adjacent(L) 120 Alvarado 1-8-1 McGaughey III 10-1

6 Tannery(L) 120 Saez 4-8-3 Goldberg 3-1

7 Dream Clover(L) 120 Lezcano 4-3-1 Clement 8-1

8 Minakshi 120 Castro 2-1-4 Matz 15-1

Main Track Only

9 Harbor Mist(L) 118 No Rider 3-3-7 Serpe 3-1

Tannery handles marathon distances and meets first non-graded stakes field since shipping stateside. Kya One has benefit of the fence and packs potent late kick on best. Julie's Love failed as the favorite last time but is more than good enough on 'A' game.

8

1 Mile. Allowance Optional Claiming. 4&up. Purse: $81,000.

1 Jaguar Paw(L) 118 Castellano 4-1-6 Brown 8-1

2 Summer Sunset(L) 118 Ortiz 2-2-1 Levine 4-1

3 Colizeo(L) 118 Lezcano 6-1-6 Rodriguez 7-2

4 Awesome Vision(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-1 Albertrani 9-5

5 Smash(L) 118 Saez 4-5-5 Baffert 2-1

Awesome Vision logged four sharp drills since winning third in a row last time; more to come. Colizeo was overmatched in Excelsior last out but could prove a serious front-end threat on best. Jaguar Paw is training with a purpose for first start in 55 days; right in the thick of this on 'A' effort.

9

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $29,000.

1 Lucky Vida(L) 124 Ortiz 8-x-x Duggan 10-1

2 Halo City Girl(L) 117 Rivera 7-10-8 Adel 50-1

3 Sweetest Peach(L) 117 Tomas 5-7-7 Sciacca 30-1

4 Bacheliere(L) 118 Cohen 3-5-3 Persaud 8-1

5 Little Gabby Girl(L) 118 Castellano 2-3-5 Brown 6-1

6 Bargaining Table(L) 118 Chamafi 3-5-2 Toscano, Jr 12-1

7 Threetimesacharm(L) 118 Solis 9-x-x Wilson 15-1

8 Ivanovna(L) 118 Espinoza 4-3-7 Barker 3-1

9 Bay Road(L) 118 Alvarado 10-2-x Domino 6-5

10 Underage(L) 111 Franco 10-x-x Badgett, Jr 30-1

Bargaining Table moves to turf after useful tightener behind repeat winner last out; throw deep in wide-open nightcap. Bay Road ships in from GP and takes sizeable price plunge; can easily take this if all is well. Little Gabby Girl switches to sod after game placing in last; logical. Ivanovna owns soild grass numbers; must consider.
