6 Outside Love(L) 114 Garcia 8-3-4 Maver, Jr 12-1

7 Manteca(L) 121 Cohen 4-2-2 Jacobson 1-2

Manteca drops and owns sizeable edge on final numbers; far too good if not damaged goods. Greeley's Law was a hand-ridden winner in last; consider. Star Dance M D regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; rebound potential.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3yo. Fillies. Maiden Claiming $65,000. Purse: $48,000.

1 Villanella(L) 122 Garcia 2-x-x Clement 3-1

9 Catriana Camille(L) 122 Lezcano 3-6-6 Hennig 10-1

Main Track Only

10 Go Go Hannah Go 122 Husbands x-x-x Jones 20-1

Tahima tallied deceptively fast late pace fig when facing much tougher group in turf debut last month; improvement predicted. Catriana Camille is training sharply for first start with maiden claiming tag; dangerous. Malibu Red was game second in last and should be aided by cutback to sprint.

3

1 Mile. 3&up. Claiming $15,000. Purse: $29,000.

1 Enchanted Stone(L) 122 Lezcano 6-3-6 Martin 4-1

5 L. C. Sleepy(L) 122 DeCarlo 11-4-5 Contessa 8-5

6 Ess Shape(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 4-7-2 Martin, Sr. 10-1

7 McKinley Square(L) 116 Smith 6-5-5 McLaughlin 2-1

Enchanted Stone adds blinkers and may get early jump in cheap field that's light on speed. McKinley Square makes peak start of form cycle; big-time threat on best. Gramercy closes and will be aided by pace meltdown.

4

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $35,000. NY Bred. Purse: $40,000.

1 Blake Street Bully(L) 118 Blake-Baeza 8-5-3 Giambanco 30-1

2 Lone Star Gold(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 9-3-3 Gyarmati 2-1

3 Missile Nick(L) 118 Alvarado 3-x-x Bush 4-1

6 Dylan Dangerous(L) 111 Ortiz 3-x-x Rodriguez 8-5

7 Five Card Draw(L1) 124 Smith x-x-x Martin 10-1

8 Souper Douper(L1) 118 Maragh x-x-x Brown 10-1

Dylan Dangerous logged solid number when third in budding key race debut. Lone Star Gold drops after being eased in last; right in the thick of this on 'A' game. Souper Douper is training with a purpose for debut; follow the money.

5

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $35,000.

1 Adjournment(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 4-9-8 Barbara 15-1

2 Plainview(L) 122 Lezcano 7-5-3 Wilkes 6-1

3 Dixie's Cat Can Do(L) 122 Desormeaux 5-5-6 Contessa 5-1

4 Holy Crusader(L) 122 Cohen 3-1-2 Orseno 10-1

5 Et Al(L) 122 Velasquez 9-7-6 Rodriguez 7-2

6 Jaded Lover(L) 117 Hernandez 2-6-7 Aquilino 12-1

7 Coyote Canyon(L) 116 Arroyo 6-5-10 Barker 30-1

8 Shotinthefog(L) 116 Prado 4-10-1 Weaver 12-1

9 Departures(L) 122 Studart 3-2-5 Chatterpaul 3-1

10 Out Of Your Mind(L) 122 Alvarado 4-2-6 Sciacca 6-1

Main Track Only

11 Wistful Wildcat(L) 116 No Rider 10-1-5 Parisella 5-1

12 Think I'm Hooked(L) 116 No Rider 4-8-5 Contessa 6-1

13 Catalan(L) 115 Ortiz 5-2-3 Rodriguez 2-1

14 Undrgroundregulatr(L) 116 Velasquez 8-5-1 Asmussen 6-1

Out Of Your Mind notched only win on Belmont turf and should pack intensified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs. Holy Crusader owns fast dirt numbers and will prove a handful if able to transfer current main-track form to grass. Plainview gets class relief and could wakeup with switch to sod; price will be tempting.

6

5 1/2 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $20,000. NY Bred. Purse: $28,000.

1 Eddies Dream(L1) 113 Camacho, Jr x-x-x Contessa 10-1

2 Pogonia(L) 118 Studart 7-3-2 Parisella 3-1

3 Cinnamon Stick(L) 118 Arroyo 10-10-2 O'Brien 10-1

4 Leading Citizen(L1) 124 Lezcano x-x-x Rodriguez 10-1

5 Simply Stunning(L) 118 Cohen 8-x-x Englehart 6-1

6 Sunday To Remember(L) 118 Espinoza 3-10-5 Odintz 7-2

7 Loblolly Pine(L1) 113 Hernandez 7-x-x Kelly 10-1

8 Tipitina(L) 111 Garcia 6-4-6 Jerkens 5-2

Sunday To Remember's late kick could prove the key in field where the speed could be suspect. Tipitina is rested and makes local debut for streaking Allen Jerkens barn; dangerous. Leading Citizen debuts for Rudy Rodriguez; could be the goods.

7

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $32,000.

1 Giving Me Fitz(L) 113 Camacho, Jr 4-9-11 Contessa 10-1

2 Carrot Thief(L) 123 Arroyo 6-4-2 Quick 20-1

3 Royal Suspicion(L) 118 Lezcano 3-2-5 Ryerson 12-1

4 Allura 123 Espinoza 10-x-x Turner, Jr 20-1

5 Hypnotic Dancer(L) 118 Maragh 6-2-7 DiMauro 12-1

6 Sweetest Peach(L1) 118 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Sciacca 20-1

7 La Busta(L) 123 Lopez 5-8-8 Campo, Jr 15-1

8 Blazing Arches(L) 123 Cohen 2-7-6 Toscano, Jr 10-1

9 Carey Princess(L1) 118 Studart 10-x-x Chatterpaul 30-1

10 Ninety Degrees(L) 118 Prado 5-4-x Bush 7-2

11 City Vice(L) 116 Garcia 6-3-7 DeMola 12-1

12 Touch Of Revenge(L) 118 Alvarado 2-4-7 Reed 7-5

Also Eligible

13 Mattie's Warrior(L) 116 Ortiz 7-4-9 DiPrima 30-1

14 Little Miss Lydia(L) 118 Garcia 6-8-10 Goodwin 30-1

15 Stellar Princess(L) 118 Maragh 8-4-x Dutrow 4-1

16 Bakin' With Cindy(L) 118 Velasquez 2-3-7 Rodriguez 2-1

Giving Me Fitz was pace and trip compromised in last and should be aided by today's additional furlong. Touch Of Revenge exits fast-figured placing on Keeneland's Polytrack and logged swift 5-furlong work in the interim; could easily take this. Bakin' With Cindy makes first start since moving to Rodriguez stable and must be considered if able to escape AE list. La Busta tallied best number on Belmont grass last summer; price will be tempting.

8

1 Mile & 1 Eighth. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $79,000.

2 Belo Acteon(L) 121 Cohen 3-1-1 Clement 5-2

1 Hailstone(L) 121 Garcia 2-3-4 Ribaudo 2-1

3 Hyper(L) 123 Lezcano 1-1-1 Brown 7-2

4 Kentucky Reign(L) 121 Bravo 6-7-1 Dutrow, Jr 10-1

5 Clear Attempt(L) 121 Alvarado 2-1-8 Mott 5-1

6 Freshman Dorm(L) 121 Velasquez 6-2-1 McLaughlin 6-1

1a Eternal Ruler(L) 121 Maragh 3-1-8 Ribaudo 2-1

Main Track Only

7 Sovereign Default(L) 121 No Rider 4-1-2 Violette, Jr 8-5

8 Keep Me Informed(L) 121 Alvarado 1-1-5 Mott 6-5

Belo Acteon grabbed short-lived lead after making sustained middle move last time and should be tighter in second stateside start. Hyper has tallied swift final fractions when winning four straight; very dangerous. Freshman Dorm is fresh and was just half-length behind Hyper on GP sod this past December; right in the thick of this.

9

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $41,000.

1 Pervis(L) 121 Espinoza 10-4-10 Araya 30-1

2 Classic R and B(L) 116 Cohen 11-1-4 Brown 15-1

3 Quick Recovery(L) 121 Prado 8-1-7 Martin 8-1

4 Calgary Enforcer(L) 116 Ayuso 9-8-6 Parker 50-1

5 Tapaway(L) 121 Maragh 3-1-7 Maker 7-2

6 Toninthirteen(L) 111 Camacho, Jr 10-6-1 Hushion 20-1

7 Modest(L) 121 Lezcano 2-1-9 McLaughlin 3-1

8 Rio Bonita(L) 121 Arroyo 3-3-2 Farro 20-1

9 Shalangar(L) 121 Desormeaux 5-7-9 Hess, Jr 6-1

10 East Indies(L) 121 Garcia 5-7-4 Signore, Jr 10-1

11 Headingtothecity(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 4-1-3 Contessa 8-1

12 City Strut(L) 121 Alvarado 1-7-4 Schettino 10-1

Also Eligible

13 Majestic Raffy(L) 121 Lezcano 6-7-1 Aquilino 3-1

Shalangar owns field's fastest late pace figures and compiled four tightly grouped works for first start since 51-day freshener. Tapaway returns to claiming ranks and was a winner in most recent turf start; very playable. Modest is fleet-footed and can win from stalker's seat. East Indies is a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead; must consider.
