14 Charging Order(L) 119 Maragh 4-x-x Brown 5-1

16 Melissa Song(L) 119 Castro 7-5-x Rodriguez 6-1

Lithe Legend is fresh and projects as the controlling speed in grass debut. My Sparky owns fast figs and was game second in last. Comment will improve with return to turf. Lizzie Bear is more than good enough on best.

12 Truly Devoted(L) 114 Garcia 5-3-1 Quick 10-1

Speedy's Cat was pace and trip compromised in last; class drop is key. Classical Fashion set ridiculously fast fractions in last; big-time, front-end threat. Candy Cat Can also owns speed and has benefit of rail on tight-turned course; dangerous.

9 Slamm'n Lou(L) 121 Maragh 5-4-7 Badgett, Jr 12-1

10 Political Justice(L) 117 Ortiz, Jr 7-8-1 Araya 12-1

Ground Frost has been sidelined for nearly two years, but Tom Voss barn excels with layoff runners. Quick Recovery was fast-figured second in last; very playable. Gamblin Fever can impact with pace meltdown. Deciphering Dreams owns fast numbers on 'A' game. Political Justice's speed must be respected.

5

5 1/2 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $62,000.

11 Big City Boy(L) 117 Lezcano 1-11-x Servis 15-1

Readthebyline logged fast late pace and final numbers when a dominant maiden winner in last; more to come. Game Token owns swift figures and hails from crafty Dennis Lalman barn; very dangerous. Quick Money is a front-running threat on best. B Shanny has yet to deliver a poor effort; contentious dash.

1 Toasting(L1) 119 Maragh 4-x-x Albertrani 6-1

7 Bliss(L1) 119 Dominguez x-x-x Brown 5-1

8 Seasoned Warrior(L) 119 Alvarado 2-x-x Mott 8-5

Seasoned Warrior has trained strongly since fast-figured placing in debut. Bliss debuts for Chad Brown and attracted Dominguez; could be the goods. Swinger's Party ships in from Delaware for Tony Dutrow; very interesting.

1a Emotional Kitten(L) 119 Leparoux 3-9-2 Ward 5-1

Main Track Only

11 Sandsarita(L1) 119 No Rider x-x-x Mott 6-1

Alluring Lady is from a dam that's produced two grass winners and logged four tight works since clear-cut second in last; experience edge is key. Atlantic Dream, another from a dam that's thrown a pair of winners on turf, could be another runner from Chad Brown barn. Neith owns turf bloodlines on both sides of pedigree; surprise package?

15 Victory for V L Ts(L) 121 Velasquez 4-3-2 Rice 8-1

16 Draw It(L) 121 Maragh 7-3-2 Albertrani 3-1

Glamour N Glory tallied swift final fraction when making late charge to land second in last; more to give. Freedom Rings didn't care for slop last time but owns a win on Spa sod; worth long look. Heart of Destiny is 1-for-1 on Spa sod; right in the thick of this. Pelipa was a much-improved maiden winner on dirt in May and might transfer newfound form to turf.

7 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $35,000.

10 Lumberjane(L) 119 Luzzi 9-8-x Levine 8-1

11 Sheila's Gold(L) 112 Davis 5-10-4 Feron 20-1

12 Outlaw Cody Z(L) 123 Espinoza 5-3-2 Morrison 8-1

Outlaw Cody Z runs late and should be aided by today's additional furlong. Meghan's Fury drops, switches surfaces and cuts back; price will be tempting. Anchovy is improving with each start; logical. Sheila's Gold adds blinkers and pulls weight from the majority of the field; very interesting.

6 1/2 Furlongs. The ADIRONDACK (Grade II). 2yo. Fillies. Purse: $200,000.

5 Vitameta(L) 118 Dominguez 1-x-x Fawkes 6-1

6 Salamera(L) 120 Castillo 1-1-x Garcia 10-1

Salamera ships up from South Florida after winning two straight at Crc; call based on price potential. Kauai Katie visually and numerically impressed in debut; obviously could romp again. Cayllano arrives for Tom Amoss after winning both starts by a combined 17 1/2 lengths; intriguing Adirondack.

11

6 1/2 Furlongs. The SARATOGA SPECIAL (Grade II). 2yo. Purse: $200,000.

1 In Harm's Way(L) 118 Prado 1-4-x Hushion 6-1

6 Shanghai Bobby(L) 122 Napravnik 1-1-x Pletcher 2-1

7 Drum Roll(L) 118 Velazquez 1-x-x Pletcher 5-1

Spurious Precision was a fast-figured winner in debut and fired eye-catching 5-furlong bullet on Tuesday. In Harm's Way was a professional-looking winner last month at Belmont; big-time player. Shanghai Bobby has impressed in both starts; be no surprise. Drum Roll lived up to heavy tote support in debut at Mth; deep Saratoga Special.
