16A Rod(L)120Luzzi7-6-10Martin20-1

Sam's Buck needs help up front but packs potent late kick on best game; call based on price potential. Springcourt is riding a two-race winning streak; could easily take another. Big Sky Posse is fresh and training consistently.

7Hurricane Heat(L)120Studart8-8-3Sciacca30-1

8My Piano Man115Ortiz5-3-3Jacobson2-1

Lindell A.C. wheels back quickly after fast-figured second on Thanksgiving; more to give. Drink With Pride is speedy and makes peak start of form cycle. Jove owns fast back figures; more than good enough on 'A' game.

6Brother Bob(L)120Velasquez7-3-3Dutrow, Jr8-5

Big Foot Ben is working with a purpose for first start since September. Brother Bob neeed last and drops; very playable. Denn Piper is fresh and owns speed; price will be tempting.

9Rockin Mandy(L)115Garcia6-x-xContessa10-1

10Altar(L1)120Ortiz, Jrx-x-xKenneally4-1

Desert Traveler could play out as the controlling speed in field that's jammed with newcomers. Rockin Mandy never delivered on heavy tote support in debut; fires today? Little Rocket attracts Dominguez in debut for Hushion; could be the goods.

9Dear Elizabeth(L)115Rodriguez3-1-5Baker12-1

10Victoryat Last(L)115Garcia9-6-3Brown8-1

Skiddles N' Bob is rested and projects as the main speed off the bench. Dear Elizabeth could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Zero Yield was a fast-figured winner on dirt two starts back; big-time threat.

15Grace's Neh Neh(L)121Montalvo8-6-9Kelly20-1

16Celtic Blessing(L)122Ortiz, Jr2-7-6Milne12-1

Invasion was a tough-trip eighth in first start and should be aided by today's longer trip. He Loves Me More could play out as the dominant front-runner if able to escape AE list. He Loves Me More is fleet-footed and fresh; dangerous. Seductress has finished second in last two starts; logical.


1 Mile. 3&up. NY Bred. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $59,000.

9Ludo Bagman(L)120Velasquez9-2-2Dutrow, Jr6-1

10Warrior Up(L)116Garcia11-1-9Ubillo30-1

Thor's Mjolnor should find already ample late kick intensified with return to dirt. Ludo Bagman is training sharply for first start since Memorial Day. Pearl of Wisdom was second to a repeat winner in last; very dangerous.


6 Furlongs. 3&up. NY Bred. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $56,000.

5Old Man Meese(L)114Garcia7-1-1Barker20-1

6Driven by Solar(L)120Castellano2-9-1Servis7-2



Mineswept owns a sit-and-pounce style that should be well served in closely-matched field. Verbosity bested two next-out winners when a hard-charging victor in last; big-time threat. Readytodefer owns speed and fast figs; right in the thick of this.


11/16 Miles. (Turf). 3&up. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $31,000.

15El Dreamer(L)115Tomas3-4-3DiSanto10-1

16Know This(L)121Lezcano2-3-8Persaud6-1

Wagon Train logged three tight works since third as the favorite in last; gets it done today. Hackleton showed good speed when making debut in 14-horse field at Lrl last month; very playable. Downtown Driggs takes potent class drop and could impact at fat ticket. Grand Rapids moves to turf in first start for Steve Asmussen; worth long look.
