15Blue Creek(L)118Castellano1-8-8Galluscio5-2


Alternative logged three half-mile works since hard charging third last out; call based on price potential. Mr E Philip bested top selection by more than a length when a clear-cut winner in last; very dangerous. The Mixer drops and hails from white-hot Joe Orseno stable; worth long look.

10Captain Easy120Leparouxx-x-xAlbertrani20-1

For Greater Glory bested a next-out winner when game second in debut; more to come. Gulfport owns speed and fired two, swift half-mile drills since last start. Captain Easy was purchased for $100k in April; follow the money.

9Spin Out(L)118Lezcano8-2-3Zito5-2

10Summer Sunset(L)118Rosario2-1-5Levine8-1

Summer Sunset projects as the controlling speed with aggressive ride. Spin Out gets class relief and will be the beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Ground Force is training strongly for first start since June.

16Mr. Vantastic(L)121Ortiz, Jr5-7-7Barker15-1

Why Not Whiskey uncorked powerful late kick to win last; pairs up. Sam's Buck also made strong rally to take last; very playable. Gossip Column has finished second in last three starts; logical, short-priced player. Nelson Avenue's speed must be respected.


11/8 Miles. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. THE BELDAME INVITATIONAL. Purse: $400,000.

6It's Tricky(L)123Castro3-1-1McLaughlin7-5

7Acting Happy(L)123Castellano3-2-3Dutrow, Jr20-1

Cash for Clunkers could capitalize on unchallenged lead in competitive Beldame. It's Tricky is 2-for-2 at Belmont and has trained strongly since last start. Go Unbridled holds career best form; very interesting. Royal Delta consistently logs fast figures.


1 Mile. 3&up. THE KELSO. Purse: $400,000.

8Pacific Ocean(L)116Garcia5-1-6Dutrow, Jr15-1

9Trickmeister(L)116Velasquez4-5-3Dutrow, Jr8-1

Shackleford has trained impressively since poor effort in A G Vanderbilt; rebounds. To Honor and Serve held on for win despite drifting out in Woodward; big-time threat. Pacific Ocean is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on a soft lead.

9Justin Phillip(L)124Dominguez2-3-2Asmussen3-1

Sean Avery visually impressed in return and owns fast back figures. Caixa Eletronica packs potent stretch punch on best. Royal Currier is speedy and owns swift final numbers on 'A' game.


11/4 Miles. (Inner Track). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. THE FLOWER BOWL INVITATIONAL. Purse: $600,000.

6Bizzy Caroline(L)119Cohen2-3-5McPeek20-1



9Halo Dolly(L)121Rosario1-1-3Hollendorfer12-1

Hessonite is at the top of her game and loves the Belmont sod. Dream Peace owns a win at the 10-furlong trip and is training sharply. I'm A Dreamer overcame rough trip to win stateside debut; Euro-bounces today?


11/2 Miles. (Widener Turf). 3&up. THE JOE HIRSCH TURF CLASSIC INVITATIONAL. Purse: $600,000.

6Finnegans Wake(L)121Rosario2-3-1Romans10-1

Point Of Entry is 3-for-3 at 12-furlong distance and has logged two impressive wins since returning to NY. Little Mike is the one that must be caught; very dangerous. Kindergarden Kid can land in exotics at fat number.


11/4 Miles. 3&up. THE TVG JOCKEY CLUB GOLD CUP INVITATIONAL. Purse: $1,000,000.

9Flat Out(L)126Rosario3-2-5Mott3-1

10Game Ball(L)126Maragh8-4-7Chatterpaul50-1

Ron The Greek is a two-time winner at 10-furlong distance; close call in ultra-contentious JCGC. Hymn Book is more than good enough on 'A' game. Fort Larned has trained strongly since winning Whitney. San Pablo is riding a two-race winning streak and has ample room for continued development.

16The Kenosha Kid(L)120Ortiz, Jr10-6-2Englehart2-1

Barnards Galaxy tallied swift final fraction when second in last and now makes first start for dynamic Drawing Away/David Jacobson duo. Status Of Forces gets rider upgrade and has ample room for continued improvement. Post Pattern is a repeated failure at short odds; no thanks. Hudson Miracle moves to grass after firing swift 5-furlong work.
