15 Heated Exchange(L) 120 Bravo 4-2-x Pecoraro 3-1

Main Track Only

16 Iratinelexburance(L) 120 Velasquez 3-x-x Rodriguez 2-1

Art of Bourbon fired crisp 5-furlong drill since debut and now moves to turf with suitable pedigree. Charming Bucky gets class relief after speed and fade in turf debut; cutback to 7 furlongs is key. Justcallmemoni is fresh and could prove very tough on unchallenged lead.

1 Shane Roars(L) 113 Garcia 6-6-9 Galluscio 4-1

6 Bandits Heart(L) 115 Ortiz 1-6-x Rodriguez 6-1

7 Grey Foose(L) 121 Espinoza 5-3-5 Contessa 5-1

Bandits Heart logged front-running score in first start for Rudy Rodriguez; more to come. Raffie's Factor could be perfectly positioned in the stalker's seat; very dangerous. Shane Roars is rested and right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 2yo. Fillies. THE VOODOO DANCER. Purse: $80,000.

1 With Sugar On Top 117 Fragoso 1-6-x McLaughlin 5-1

6 Heading to Toga(L) 117 Ortiz, Jr 1-x-x Schettino 5-1

7 Discreet Marq(L) 117 Castro 1-6-x Ryerson 3-1

Heading To Toga was unfazed by hot fractions when a wire-to-wire winner in debut; speed of the speed. Coconut Shrimp should be aided by today's shorter trip. Discreet Marq visually impressed when winning key race the first time she touched grass; worth long look.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $52,000.

2 Papa Tom(L) 115 Garcia 4-2-10 Ubillo 8-1

8 Cousin Michael 120 Luzzi x-x-x Baker 8-1

1a Comstock Prize(L) 120 Castro 2-x-x Albertrani 7-2

The Kenosha Kid is speedy and owns fast dirt numbers. Papa Tom looms the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Comstock Prize was game second in debut exactly one year to the day; must consider.

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $61,000.

1 Reach for a Peach(L) 118 Lezcano 1-3-1 Brown 7-2

2 Paraiba(L) 121 Rosario 3-3-6 Donk 4-1

3 Jitney(L) 118 Castro 1-1-9 Hertler 8-1

9 Ladywell Court(L) 118 Bravo 1-3-1 Serpe 5-1

Main Track Only

10 Devilish Spirit(L) 121 No Rider. 3-7-4 Sciacca 6-1

11 Haldane(L) 118 Velasquez 1-1-4 Galluscio 5-2

12 Full of Intent(L) 118 No Rider. 1-6-6 Levine 5-1

Margaret Lillian owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the swiftest of the swift with aggressive ride. Reach for a Peach packs potent late kick and will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Ladywell Court, another that closes powerfully, could easily take this fractions get hot and hectic.

7

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $39,000.

1 Wishingonadream(L) 116 Hernandez 3-4-5 DiSanto 20-1

11 Hepatologist(L) 118 Alvarado 1-1-9 Servis 15-1

12 Alltiffedoff(L) 121 Lopez 9-10-8 O'Brien 50-1

Also Eligible

13 A Rod(L) 121 Luzzi 6-10-1 Martin 30-1

Main Track Only

14 Lincoln Penny(L) 121 Espinoza 7-6-13 Ortiz 15-1

Big Sky Posse was pace and trip compromised when a hard charging second in last; more to give. Wishingonadream was a change-of-pace third in last; price will be tempting. Runaway Jim has finished third in last two starts; continues trend?

8

11/16 Miles. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $75,000.

1 Royal Rhiannon(L) 118 Rosario 1-3-x Terranova 3-1

3 Island School(L) 121 Velasquez 7-3-2 McGaughey III 7-2

5 Royal Sighting(L) 116 Garcia 5-1-3 Englehart 10-1

6 Inny Minnie(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 5-3-3 Nihei 5-2

7 Ginger Snapit(L) 121 Castro 3-4-3 Weaver 6-1

Ginger Snapit was overmatched in last at Spa and return to Belmont's one-turn route could provide the edge. Royal Rhiannon could get early jump and hold tough on biased rail; very playable. Flashy American logged fast figs in last two starts; right in the thick of this.

9

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $30,000.

1 Search Engine(L) 120 Smith 6-11-12 Nihei 20-1

2 Here Comes Drz(L) 115 Hernandez 4-5-2 Martin 9-2

3 Side Party Ralph(L) 120 Luzzi 8-3-2 Sallusto 20-1

4 Backdrafter(L) 120 Velasquez 8-4-x Rice 10-1

5 Winning Pal(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 7-7-10 Rice 4-1

6 Brooklyn Legend(L) 123 Lopez 11-3-7 Coletti, Sr. 5-1

7 Big Red Talent(L) 115 Coa 5-5-5 Chatterpaul 15-1

8 Soup A' Fleet(L) 115 Garcia 6-2-3 Orseno 8-1

9 Suilleabhain(L) 120 Studart 11-11-x Sciacca 20-1

10 Solengo(L) 115 Ortiz 5-6-7 Bond 3-1

11 Filberto(L) 120 Castro 7-x-x Badgett, Jr 12-1

12 Vengeful Pride 120 Espinoza 9-9-10 O'Brien 30-1

Main Track Only

13 Kershner 120 No Rider. x-x-x Romans 6-1

14 Poised to a Tee(L) 120 No Rider. 5-8-x Mareina 5-1

15 Money Only(L) 120 No Rider. 5-6-2 Asmussen 7-2

16 Port Conway(L) 120 Lezcano 5-3-5 McLaughlin 5-2

Suilleabhain is rested and takes potent class drop and rates call based on juicy price in wide-open nightcap. Here Comes Drz was compromised by wide trip when a late-running fourth in last; very dangerous. Solengo makes first start with maiden-claiming tag; seriously consider. Big Red Talent's speed gives him a puncher's chance.
