6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $20,000.

Post -- 1 p.m.1 My Golden Opinion(L) 124 Luzzi 2-5-5 Rodriguez 9-5

2 Haitian Sensation(L) 124 Valdivia, Jr 1-1-1 Volk 2-1

3 Strummer(L) 124 Hill 1-10-2 Sciacca 4-1

4 Timber Cruise(L) 124 Alvarado 2-2-8 Loaiza 8-1

5 Max's First(L) 124 Lopez 6-8-7 Perkins, Jr 6-1

6 J J's Prophet(L) 124 Alvarado 3-4-8 DeRosa 15-1

Haitian Sensation fired two bullet works for first start in more than a year; timid call in treacherous opener. Strummer, another that's been sidelined for more than a year, could play out as the dominant speed. My Golden Opinion is fresh and owns fast figures on 'A' game.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $12,500. Purse: $15,000.

1 Breathless Blues(L) 113 Rodriguez 5-5-4 Contessa 12-1

2 Smooth Bore(L) 118 Lezcano 2-5-3 Rodriguez 7-5

3 Major Molly(L) 118 Alvarado 4-6-x Rice 2-1

4 Straddler(L) 117 Rivera 4-5-6 Imperio 12-1

5 Miz Macy(L) 118 Luzzi 6-8-x Tannuzzo 8-1

6 Chatterbelle(L1) 118 Castro x-x-x Rice 7-2

Smooth Bore was a clear-cut second behind a runaway winner in last; weakness of field is selection's strength. Chatterbelle is a newcomer from the Linda Rice barn; tote watching a must. Major Molly adds blinkers after even fourth as the favorite last time; could easily move forward.

3

1 Mile. 3&up. Allowance. Purse: $45,000.

1 Break Up the Game(L) 116 Cohen 1-4-2 McGaughey III 4-5

2 Bravo Romeo(L) 116 Alvarado 2-5-4 Rodriguez 12-1

3 Joe Corrigan(L) 122 Lezcano 4-5-5 Ubillo 10-1

4 Rigby(L) 124 Lopez 1-3-1 Brown 9-5

5 Most Happy Fella(L) 122 Valdivia, Jr 8-6-6 Badgett, Jr 8-1

Break Up The Game logged fast late pace figure when breaking maiden last month at GP; more to come. Bravo Romeo is riding an improving line on the numbers; potential main speed. Rigby has won four of last six; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $10,000. Purse: $14,000.

1 Read About Me(L) 113 Rodriguez 4-5-5 Terracciano 3-1

2 Starr West(L) 124 Cohen 6-8-8 Jacobson 7-5

3 Crescent Moon Dr(L) 124 Studart 6-9-8 Sciacca 20-1

4 Amplify(L) 124 Gomez 8-8-9 Creary 50-1

5 Tactical Salute(L) 119 Pedroza 10-6-5 Kelly 30-1

6 Magic Jazz(L) 118 Castro 7-5-7 Campo, Jr 8-1

7 Sully's Landing(L) 124 Valdivia, Jr 4-7-6 Galluscio 2-1

Read About Me tallied improved internal and final figures in last; controlling speed on the fence with aggressive ride. Starr West was victimized by bad start when three lengths behind Read About Me last out; more than good enough on best. Sully's Landing could be the prime beneficiary if top selection wilts in the lane.

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $17,000.

1 Donna's Sandee(L) 117 Rodriguez 5-3-7 DeMola 12-1

4 Lute(L) 118 Santiago 6-1-4 Contessa 5-1

5 Wise Choice(L) 122 Luzzi 2-4-6 Sciacca 6-1

6 Sweethearts Kiss(L) 122 Lopez 8-10-6 Ferraro 15-1

7 Up Up Away(L) 122 Cohen 3-9-6 Kimmel 5-2

No Goal tallied improved final fraction in last and should have more to give in fourth start since three-month layoff. Kisses From Karen wheels back in a hurry after third versus pricier field on Wednesday; worth long look. Sweethearts Kiss adds blinkers and drops and could be sitting on wakeup at fat ticket.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Fillies. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $33,000.

1 Kathleen's Halo 118 Alvarado 1-x-x Donato 12-1

4 Reproduction(L) 118 Cohen 2-6-2 Brown 2-1

5 Encomium(L) 118 Lopez 6-7-1 Ryerson 10-1

6 Avanta(L) 118 Luzzi 1-7-5 Pletcher 5-2

Reproduction logged willing third into hot final fraction last time and could get fast pace to set table. Indian Lilly notched fast pace and final figures when winning second straight last time; could easily take another. Avanta exits handy score and could handle class boost in current condition.

1 1/16 Miles (Turf). 3&up. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $22,000.

1 Completely Bear(L) 118 Cohen 6-3-7 Dutrow 5-1

6 Smart Maneuver(L) 124 Alvarado 5-2-3 Barbara 8-5

7 Pernice(L) 124 Espinoza 5-5-4 Turner, Jr 10-1

Pernice logged solid final fractions on turf last autumn and is training with a purpose for first start in 80 days. Mach Twelve gets class relief and is by top-shelf turf sire Rock Hard Ten; very interesting. Gramercy is improving and is from a dam that's produced a grass winner; worth long look at long price.

8

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. LOVE IS ETERNAL STAKES. Purse: $60,000.

1 Those Lion Eyes(L) 118 Hill 2-2-1 Martin 5-1

2 Good Habits(L) 118 Cohen 1-2-x Hertler 8-1

3 Funky Munky Mama(L) 118 Alvarado 3-2-3 Gullo 4-1

5 Gambling Geraldine(L) 118 Castro 2-1-x Pletcher 3-1

6 Jackie Mo(L) 118 Valdivia, Jr 1-2-x Brown 10-1

Jackie Mo earned swift late pace figure when winning last and is favorably posted outside the front-runners. Good Habits held three lengths to the good on top selection when winning under a hand ride last time; very playable. Midnight Visit and Those Lion Eyes own fast numbers on best efforts.

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

1 Ecru Egret(L) 122 Blake-Baeza 3-5-7 Persaud 30-1

2 Prime Obsession(L) 117 Rodriguez 9-7-3 Hernandez, Jr 20-1

3 Full Tilt Noogie(L) 122 Espinoza 6-6-6 Barker 15-1

6 Warrant Ofc. Cook(L) 122 Valdivia, Jr 1-2-4 Dutrow, Jr 3-1

7 Bold Vindication(L) 122 Luzzi 3-6-6 Sciacca 8-1

8 Beresford(L) 122 Hill 6-3-4 Turner, Jr 5-1

9 Mr. Hadif(L) 122 Alvarado 4-5-1 Lostritto 15-1

Warrant Ofc. Cook overcame slow pace to win last on inner track and owns win on grass. Rock America is rested and owns fast turf figures; very dangerous. Mr. Hadif owns sprinter's speed and could prove tough if able to shake clear on tight-turned course. Bold Vindication logged one of his two career wins on the Big A sod; don't ignore.
