12 Sumo(L) 121 Napravnik 1-7-3 Canani 3-1

Dugan tallied fast final fraction when a hard charging third on Saratoga grass last summer. Ground Frost has been idle for 681 days but packs potent late kick on best. Sr. Henry makes first start since moving to Rudy Rodriguez barn; very interesting.

4

6 Furlongs. Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $36,000.

1 Heavy Duty(L) 117 Alvarado 6-2-1 Zito 5-1

8 Grey Foose(L) 121 Castellano 7-11-1 Contessa 12-1

9 Rutherford B.(L) 117 Castro 8-1-3 Arroyo 8-1

Heavy Duty gets favorable cutback and could play out as the speed on the fence. Itsnottheright will be in the garden spot if fractions get hot and hectic. Black Rhino is another that will be aided by pace meltdown. Grey Foose fired 3-furlong bullet since last start; don't ignore.

5

5 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $150,000. 2yo. Fillies. Purse: $56,000.

7 Laguna Girl(L1) 119 Alvarado x-x-x Orseno 15-1

8 Fierce(L) 109 Davis 2-x-x Ward 5-2

Fierce has trained strongly since game placing in debut at CD; pulling 10 pounds from field is added bonus. Everything Sweet makes first start for Rick Violette; stay tuned to the tote. My Kinda Party is working with a purpose for Tony Dutrow; happy hunting.

6

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $50,000-$40,000. Purse: $48,000.

7 Artist Colony(L1) 119 Alvarado 9-x-x Jerkens 12-1

8 Box Office(L) 119 Velazquez 5-x-x Catalano 6-1

Beach Boy Alex lacks speed but could get ideal setup at fat ticket. Port Conway is training sharply for first start in 12 weeks; very playable. He Ain't Bluffing owns fast figs and fired three bullets since last start; short price is the knock.

7

5 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 2yo. NY Bred. Purse: $60,000.

1 Go Get the Basil(L1) 119 Garcia x-x-x Violette, Jr 4-1

11 Goodtolook(L1) 119 Cohen x-x-x Contessa 8-1

Richiesbronxbomber bested a next-out winner when a game second in last. Spirit of Peace and Go Get the Basil are newcomers with work tabs that culminated with bullets; follow the money.

1 1/2 Mile. (Inner Turf). The RICHMOR AVIATION WAYA. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $100,000.

2 Bubbly Jane(L) 120 Castellano 2-2-8 Pletcher 9-2

10 Traffic Sister(L1) 116 Castro 8-12-1 Moore 30-1

11 Bizzy Caroline(L) 120 Lezcano 5-1-3 McPeek 5-1

1a Starformer(L) 123 Prado 1-7-1 Mott 3-1

Main Track Only

12 Lady Cohiba(L) 109 No Rider 7-2-6 Clement 7-2

Starformer was a front-running winner in turf marathon last time and could play out as the controlling speed once again. Naples Bay is riding an improving line on the form paramters and now makes peak start of cycle; very interesting. Bubbly Jane was just three lengths behind top selection after wide trip in last; could certainly close the gap.

9

1 1/16 Mile. (Mellon Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 4&up. Purse: $95,000.

1 Formulaforsuccess(L) 119 Castellano 4-1-3 Maker 12-1

3 Scotus(L) 119 Lezcano 6-3-3 McPeek 15-1

7 A Diehl(L) 123 Leparoux 1-2-1 Arnold, II 3-1

8 Evolutionist(L) 119 Alvarado 8-6-4 Mott 15-1

9 Beau Choix(L) 119 Dominguez 4-5-4 Tagg 12-1

10 Dahoud(L) 119 Napravnik 2-1-9 Fisher 5-1

Main Track Only

11 Self Control(L) 119 Dominguez 1-3-3 Brown 9-5

12 Sovereign Default(L) 119 Garcia 6-1-4 Violette, Jr 4-1

13 Golden Gulch(L) 119 Lezcano 2-8-1 Kenneally 3-1

Formulaforsuccess needed last start and logged crisp 5-furlong drill in the interim. Crimson China tallied swift final fraction when besting top selection by two lengths last out; very dangerous. Dahoud has been on the bench for more than a year but could prove very tough on a soft lead. Air Support owns fast figs on 'A' game; be no surprise.

10

1 Mile. (Inner Turf). Maiden Claiming $65,000. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $50,000.

1 Dark Nebula(L) 122 Napravnik 2-3-2 Arnold, II 4-1

2 Bourbonesque(L) 115 Garcia 6-4-6 Lukas 30-1

3 Any Given Moment(L) 122 Leparoux 8-3-6 Baker 20-1

4 Kaitlyns Cat(L) 122 Dominguez 3-4-x Martin 8-1

5 Mary Ann's Kitchen(L) 122 Alvarado 8-x-x Tagg 20-1

6 Fun and Gains(L) 122 Maragh 3-8-3 Wilkes 3-1

7 Living My Dream(L) 122 Castellano 4-x-x Maker 7-2

8 Certainty(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 9-8-2 Albertrani 10-1

9 Race Palace(L) 122 Lezcano 6-3-2 Brown 5-1

10 Chat Me Up(L) 122 Rosario 3-2-6 Schettino 8-1

Also Eligible

11 Channel the Green(L) 122 Prado 7-x-x Tagg 8-1

12 Attention(L) 122 Lezcano 7-2-8 Clement 12-1

13 Los Ojitos(L) 122 Rosario 2-3-9 Canani 5-1

Attention was flat in last but should move forward in second start since eight-month layoff. Bourbonesque is 0-for-12 but owns field's fastest final numbers on turf and returns from helpful 45-day freshener. Living My Dream should be aided by added ground and hails from potent sprint-to-route barn. Kaitlyns Cat is from a dam that's produced two turf winners.
