13 Sugar Beach(L) 116 Garcia 3-5-3 Ubillo 7-2

Bourbonology logged lifetime best late pace fig when a hard charging fourth in last. Fast and Strong held more than a length to the good on top selection when third in debut; very dangerous. Cape Cod Carol closes and could be aided by longer trip.

3

7 Geantor(L) 119 Castellano 6-4-6 Contessa 6-1

8 Harry Consolidator(L) 112 Davis 10-12-5 Shivmangal 30-1

Tough All Day makes quick comeback after chasing hot fractions this past Wednesday; cutback is key. Revere makes first start since claimed by crafty connections (Gary Gullo); dangerous. Backdown makes third start since 10-month layoff; must consider.

4

Main Track Only

9 Private Councel(L) 121 Lezcano 1-1-3 Goodwin 6-1

Giant Sleep logged solid pace fig when winning second straight last time; main speed. First Whippoorwill delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency; big-time threat. Cosmic Energy was fast-figured maiden winner on Opening Day and fired half-mile bullet in the interim.

5

9 Always Kitten(L1) 119 Napravnik x-x-x Maker 6-1

10 Citizen Emma(L) 119 Castellano 2-x-x Pletcher 5-2

Broken Spell gets the meds after tough-trip fifth in last; three works in the interim seals the deal. Mariel N Kathy showed speed in debut and could prove very tough on soft lead. J'esprit compiled eye-catching work tab for first start; stay tuned to tote.

6

Also Eligible

1a Hobbs(L) 120 Castellano 1-1-2 Pletcher 3-1

Main Track Only

11 Truetap(L) 120 No Rider 4-2-1 Asmussen 5-2

Miami Cat is fresh, training crisply and projects as the controlling speed with aggressive handling. Pletcher entry: Our Entourage drops and packs powerful late kick and mate Hobbs is riding a two-race winning streak; potent pairing. Key To Power was compromised by soft flow in last; dangerous.

7

Main Track Only

15 Bridgetta(L) 119 Napravnik 6-2-4 Brown 4-1

16 Kellster(L) 112 Garcia 8-x-x Contessa 8-1

Galaxy Jet drops back into maiden claimers and may have landed in vulnerable group. Bronze Beauty looms the main speed in turf debut; very dangerous. Wish To Opine is training consistently for first start since January; right in the thick of this.

8

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. (Inner Turf). The WOODFORD RESERVE LAKE PLACID (Grade II). 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $200,000.

1 Stephanie's Kitten(L) 118 Velazquez 4-1-3 Catalano 9-5

2 Centre Court(L) 122 Leparoux 1-1-1 Arnold, II 2-1

3 Medolina(L) 118 Castellano 5-1-1 Pletcher 4-1

4 Better Lucky(L) 120 Castro 2-1-1 Albertrani 5-1

5 Disposablepleasure(L) 116 Dominguez 4-2-2 Pletcher 8-1

6 Somali Lemonade(L) 118 Rosario 6-3-4 Matz 12-1

Stephanie's Kitten was a tough-trip fourth as the fave in Lake George; deserves another chance. Centre Court bested top selection by half-length when a determined winner in Lake George; could certainly take another. Disposablepleasure has improved since lone turf outing last summer; worth long look.

9

7 Furlongs. Starter Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $65,000.

1 Molly Morgan(L) 117 Lezcano 6-1-3 Romans 5-1

10 Bid a Moon(L) 121 Velasquez 7-3-2 Schosberg 15-1

11 Lily Lynn(L) 121 Cohen 5-4-1 Signore, Jr 30-1

Marvelous Margaret chased swift splits when a willing second last time; controlling speed with hustling tactics. Royal Sighting packs solid late kick and will be the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Ode To Sami and Caviar N Champagne are right in the thick of this on their best efforts.

11 Tahoe Tigress(L1) 117 Husbands 10-1-x Farrell 20-1

12 Granby Girl(L) 117 Espinoza 5-6-2 Ortiz 12-1

Reserved For Two was done in by hot fractions and tough trip in last at Prx; rates close call. Tahoe Tigress gets the meds and returns to dirt; wakeup potential. Read The Research will be aided by class drop and return to dirt; dangerous. Centrique was game second at this level in last; must consider.
