10 Gin Cat(L) 117 Castro 5-6-4 Hennig 12-1

11 Soldierette(L) 121 Lenclud 4-5-10 Hertler 30-1

All Quiet returns to dirt and packs potent late kick on best. Moshe Diane is 1-for-1 at Saratoga and should pack amplified punch with cutback to 6 furlongs. Chickatari was a pole clear when a fast-figured second in last; dangerous.

2

51/2 Furlongs (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. THE SMART AND FANCY. Purse: $75,000.

9 Full of Gut(L) 119 Velasquez 1-1-1 Dutrow, Jr 6-5

10 Devilish Spirit(L) 119 Cohen 4-1-2 Brown 2-1

Legally Blanca tallied swift late pace figure when winning last; more to come. Quebrada Shiner was clear-cut winner in last and owns victory on Spa sod; very playable. Karakorum Elektra is another last-race winner that must be considered in contentious dash.

3

11/8 Miles (Inner Turf). 3&up. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $41,000.

1 Mr. Masterpiece 119 Sanchez 6-x-x Quick 50-1

12 Atitlan(L) 123 Dominguez 2-3-6 Brown 2-1

Main Track Only

13 This Hard Land(L) 119 Lezcano 2-3-10 Ubillo 3-1

Fast Grievance wheels back in a hurry after tough trip last week; rebounds to effort two starts back. Papa Freud showed improved speed last time and now adds blinkers and could secure soft lead. Atitlan owns fast figures but starts from tough post; demand value.

4

13/16 Miles (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $23,000.

1 Willy Pay(L) 119 Cohen 6-7-4 Kimmel 20-1

13 Pure Kraft(L) 119 Chavez 2-10-x Martin 5-1

14 Gypsy Warrior(L) 119 Rodriguez 12-3-2 Bush 10-1

15 Master John(L1) 119 Lezcano x-x-x Jerkens 6-1

Thomas Is Rockin tallied solid final fraction in most recent start and compiled five tightly grouped works in the interim. Parcel takes potent class drop after fast-figured fourth in last; dangerous. East Indies is speedy and can contend on 'A' game.

7 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance. Purse: $52,000.

1 Bid a Moon(L) 119 Lezcano 1-10-2 Clement 8-1

6 Storm Spell(L) 117 Castellano 7-1-3 Harty 15-1

7 Island Bound(L) 121 Lenclud 3-1-7 Wilkes 8-1

Lady Jadana packs a strong stretch kick and should offer best price potential of the contenders. Counterparty logged swift number when winning debut; added furlong is the question. Island Bound is the only member of field with a win at the 7-furlong trip.

Main Track Only

14 Mr Ames(L) 119 Velazquez 4-x-x Schosberg 7-2

Strolldownbroadway makes return from 296-day absence for trainer that excels with layoff runners. Paci Di Notte makes be considered if able to escape AE list. El Dreamer fired half-mile bullet for return from 72-day freshener; don't ignore.

7 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. RACHEL ALEXANDRA. Purse: $75,000.

1 Belle of the Hall(L) 121 Dominguez 6-5-7 Albertrani 20-1

7 Comic Marvel(L) 119 Lezcano 7-4-5 Mott 20-1

8 Worstcasescenario(L) 119 Maragh 2-5-1 Violette, Jr 12-1

9 Ailalea(L) 119 Prado 5-2-9 Pletcher 12-1

Buckleupbuttercup logged four eye-catching works since notching rapid late pace figure when winning at 7-furlong distance last time; more to give. Kid Kate is 2-for-2 at Saratoga and tallied very fast internal and final numbers when second in Bed O Roses last out; big-time player. Lisa's Booby Trap is a very tough customer on 'A' game.

8

61/2 Furlongs. 3yo. THE AMSTERDAM (Grade II). Purse: $150,000.

1 Arch Traveler(L) 119 Lezcano 3-1-6 Jerkens 4-1

6 Travelin Man(L) 123 Velazquez 4-6-1 Pletcher 9-2

7 Justin Phillip(L) 123 Dominguez 1-3-3 Asmussen 3-1

Arch Traveler has trained strongly since coming up flat in Woody Stephens Stakes; bounces back today. Justin Philip went wire-to-wire in 'Stephens' and could prove very tough on loose lead once again. Travelin Man can easily take this on best efforts.

9

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $20,000. Purse: $22,000.

1 Ohbabyobeyme(L) 119 Dominguez 3-8-5 Dutrow 9-2

12 Holy Spice(L) 119 Velasquez 7-3-6 Rodriguez 7-2

13 Spa City Lover(L) 119 Sanchez 2-2-x Ward 3-1

By M K is riding an improving line on the numbers and now makes peak start of form cycle. Ohbabyobeyme fired crisp 5-furlong drill since setting fast pace in last; dangerous. Spa City Lover logged fast figures in two starts at the Spa last summer; right in the thick of this. Holy Spice makes first start with maiden claiming tag goes turf to dirt; worth long look.
