6Show Bound(L1)118Castellanox-x-xAsmussen7-2

7Shoot Craps(L)118Parker3-x-xKobiskie4-1

Shoot Craps hails from high-percentage, first-time turf barn. Show Bound is firing bullets for debut; could be the goods. Sunshine Life has finished third in both starts; continues trend?


6 1/2 Furlongs. Claiming $16,000. 3&up. Purse: $28,000.

8Boss Daddy(L)122Jara6-4-2Quartarolo15-1

Oliver Rush drops, returns to dirt and owns fast late pace figures on best efforts. Pin and Win was a clear-cut second in last; dangerous. Boss Daddy's speed must be respected; price will be tempting.


6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $68,000.

9Scat Away(L)120Velasquez6-2-1Rice6-1

10Sacred Success(L)120Maragh1-5-1Gyarmati5-1

Rumble Doll is rested and packs potent late kick on best. Verismilitude is speedy and 1-for-1 on Belmont sod. Lady Gracenote makes peak start of form cycle; worth long look.


1 3/8 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Purse: $75,000.

9Britannia's Moat(L)117Franco5-2-xDonk12-1

10Tweet Kitten(L)117Castellano2-5-3Brown5-2

Britannia's Moat could play out as the main speed with aggressive ride. Tweet Kitten was pace compromised when a willing second in last. Convert could be aided by today's longer trip.


6 Furlongs. Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $40,000.

1Attractive Ride(L)120Rodriguez1-5-5Terracciano8-1

8Joe Mooch(L)120Ortiz6-6-5Contessa12-1


10Hannibal Lecter(L)120Maragh2-8-4Toscano, Jr20-1

Candyman E makes first start since reclaimed by Rudy Rodriguez. Hop Skip and Away is fresh and owns fast figs on best efforts. Love to Run regressed in last after three sharp efforts in a row; dangerous. One More Night is more than good enough on 'A' game.


1 Mile. (Widener Turf). Claiming $40,000. 3&up. Purse: $40,000.

8Blue Shark(L)124Ortiz, Jr4-1-5Donk8-1





Main Track Only

13Againsome(L)120No Rider5-8-3Rice6-1

Quite the Issue is fresh and hails from solid layoff stable. Foxhall Drive was a front-running winner last time; speedy and dangerous. Blarp returns to turf and would be aided by pace meltdown.


1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Purse: $62,000.

1Detail(L)122Ortiz, Jr2-2-1Brown3-1

8Loon River(L)122Castellano3-4-3Sciacca7-2

9Daisy Cutter(L)118Velasquez1-3-xRice8-1

10Jules N Rome(L)122Alvarado4-1-1Schettino4-1

Skinner Box was victimized by soft fractions last time; addition of blinkers should help. Unspoken was a determined winner in only turf start and fired 3-furlong bullet for return. Detail holds razor-sharp current form; logical.


1 1/16 Mile. Claiming $32,000. 3&up. Purse: $53,000.

1M J Plus(L)120Rice3-6-6Friedman15-1

9My Adonis(L)120Arroyo5-3-1Gargan15-1

10Lieutenant Seany O(L)120Maragh6-2-6Levine12-1


Bad Hombre tallied improved internal numbers in last; sharp 5-furlong work on May 29 seals the deal. Bellamy Brew owns speed and fast figs but has been sidelined for 633 days; demand value. Prospero has been earning swift numbers at Prx; right in the thick of this.


1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $77,000.

Main Track Only

2Succesful Brothers(L)120No Rider6-3-3Rodriguez5-2

Where's Danny notched rapid final fraction when a game second in last; more to give. Kiss of Thunder should move forward in second start since six-month absence; worth long look at long price. Orino compiled tight work tab for return from 50-day freshener; don't ignore.


6 1/2 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. NY Bred. Purse: $60,000.

1Lady in Shades(L1)118Arroyox-x-xKlesaris5-1

8Women Win(L)118Ortiz2-2-5Hushion3-1

9Queen Katherina(L)118Silvera5-12-xShivmangal30-1


Great Smile logged solid late pace figure when second in debut at Pim; drop in with NY-breds seals the deal. Women Win has finished second in last two starts; logical. Lilikoi owns speed and should be aided by slight cutback. Always Sarah was an even third in last and should improve in second start since seventh-month layoff.
