7 Runawayeightyfour(L) 119 Prado 1-3-3 Galluscio 5-2

8 Sinorice(L) 121 Lezcano 6-1-5 Zito 7-2

Charlestonian was a commanding winner on Opening Day and should have more to give for white-hot Drawing Away/Jacobson tandem. Runawayeightyfour logged fast final fraction when a hand-ridden winner in last; very dangerous. Call First regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; right in the thick of this.

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $75,000.

5 Ninety Degrees(L) 118 Velasquez 4-x-x Bush 12-1

6 Royal Rhiannon(L1) 118 Solis x-x-x Terranova,II 5-1

Forbidden Gift has worked consistently since pace and position compromised in debut; forward move predicted. Coral Glade is speedy and could prove very tough on soft lead. Joya Real has trained strongly since clear-cut second in debut; could easily take this.

6 1/2 Furlongs. The PUTTHEPOWDERTOIT. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $85,000.

1 Midnight Visit(L) 120 Castro 1-7-1 Pletcher 5-1

3 Risky Rachel(L) 124 Velasquez 1-5-1 Coronel 2-5

4 Saltamontes(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 2-5-3 Rodriguez 10-1

5 Lady On The Run(L) 122 Luzzi 1-1-2 Morrison 6-1

Risky Rachel holds an edge on final numbers. Lady On The Run logged three of her four wins at Belmont Park; price will be tempting. Saltamontes makes peak start of form cycle; worth a look.

4

1 Eye Witness(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 4-5-1 Galluscio 30-1

2 Milwaukee Mixer(L) 121 Bravo 2-3-4 Englehart 4-1

10 Trouble in Dodge(L) 121 Maragh 2-4-4 Orseno 5-1

Main Track Only

11 War Colony(L) 121 No Rider 1-3-6 Englehart 6-1

Pete's Parley moves to the turf after tallying deceptively swift late pace fig in last; four recent works seals the deal. No La Hace wheels back in a hurry after notching fast-figured score in turf debut on Saturday; could easily pair up. Isn'tlovejustgrand is rested and owns win on Belmont sod; worth long look at long price.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $76,000.

1 Temecula Creek(L) 123 Castro 1-1-4 Rodriguez 4-1

5 Hillswick(L) 114 Ortiz 3-3-1 Rodriguez 6-1

6 Justin Phillip(L) 121 Velasquez 2-6-6 Asmussen 2-1

Leave Of Absence is fresh, training sharply and packs field's most potent late kick on best efforts. Hillswick is fleet-footed and owns fast numbers. Justin Phillip notched two of his three wins on Belmont loam; very dangerous.

6

1 Rockfield(L) 118 Bravo 3-10-x Pletcher 7-2

Main Track Only

11 Penn's Grant(L) 118 Castro 3-4-3 Tagg 2-1

12 Reflecting(L) 118 Garcia 5-x-x McGaughey III 4-1

Night Site tallied solid final fraction when a game second in turf debut; more to give. Punctual Jeff has finished second in four of six starts; bad trend? Rockfield has the benefit of the rail at 9-furlongs on inner course; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $70,000.

1 Dorothy's Spirit(L) 118 Bravo 6-5-4 Brown 5-1

7 Indy Dreaming(L) 118 Alvarado 6-6-x Mott 6-1

8 Resonating 118 Garcia x-x-x Jerkens 12-1

9 Vindicated Ghost(L) 116 Ortiz 5-5-3 Albertrani 7-2

10 Phantasticus(L1) 118 Luzzi x-x-x Rice 12-1

Dorothy's Spirit compiled eye-catching work slate for first start since October for potent layoff barn (Chad Brown); primed and ready. Vindicated Ghost needed last and should be aided by today's shorter trip. Indy Dreaming is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; very interesting.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $35,000. Purse: $39,000.

2 Thomas Hill(L) 116 Solis 5-5-3 Grusmark 20-1

3 Robert the Bruce(L) 116 Prado 1-12-x Hess, Jr 4-1

4 Plainview(L) 121 Bravo 5-3-7 Wilkes 12-1

1a Departures(L) 121 Espinoza 3-2-5 Chatterpaul 5-1

8 Lindell A. C.(L) 121 Lezcano 5-5-3 Schosberg 6-1

9 Dixie's Cat Can Do(L) 121 Maragh 5-6-1 Contessa 5-1

10 Good Feng Shui(L) 121 Alvarado 4-7-3 Pecoraro 6-1

Luigi P is rested and packs solid late kick and could receive ideal setup in big field. Plainview is riding a forward line on the numbers and could prove tough foe from stalker's perch. Mr. Ast was unable to make lead last time but could prove very tough if able to shake clear today.

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. NY Bred. Purse: $64,000.

1 Ginger Snapit(L) 121 Castro 6-3-1 Weaver 20-1

2 Honey Mou(L) 123 Garcia 1-1-3 D'Alessandro 12-1

3 Alphabet Jamerica(L) 121 Bravo 5-2-2 Kazamias 12-1

4 Aptphilly(L) 121 Luzzi 2-5-1 Schosberg 8-1

5 Full of Intent(L) 118 Velasquez 1-1-3 Levine 6-1

6 Princess Mara(L) 121 Lezcano 5-1-1 Romans 6-1

7 Newbie(L) 118 Alvarado 1-2-5 Kimmel 7-2

8 Harbor Mist(L) 118 Prado 3-1-6 Serpe 4-1

9 Freud's Notebook(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-4 D'Alessandro 3-1

Newbie has worked sharply since front-running score in last; broke maiden at Belmont this past fall. Aptphilly is 1-for-1 at Belmont and could pack amplified kick with return to dirt; dangerous. Princess Mara is 2-for-2 on dirt and will be aided by return to preferred footing. Ginger Snapit is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

10

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

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

11 Mattie's Warrior(L) 116 Ortiz 4-9-6 DiPrima 20-1

Main Track Only

13 Black and White(L) 118 No Rider 4-3-8 Contessa 4-1

14 Archaelogist(L) 123 No Rider 2-4-6 Jacobson 1-

Pure Sunshine drops and could wakeup at fat ticket with switch to sod in weak nightcap. Double Berg cuts back to sprint and could prove a big-time threat in the stretch. Hypnotic Dancer makes first start since moving to Stephen L. DiMauro stable and owns competitive efforts. Mattie's Warrior was improved fourth in last and could land in exotics at juicy number.
