11 Heron Lake(L) 121 No Rider 6-1-x Zito 7-2

Taproot compiled tight work tab for first start in 168 days and owns fast late pace figs on best. Decisive Move was a front-running winner this price and trip on Opening Week; very dangerous. Shotinthefog was tough-trip fifth behind 'Move' last out; must consider. My Man Dan wheels back in a hurry after claimed from Sunday's 11th race; capable on best.

8 True Fortune 119 Alvarado x-x-x Weaver 6-1

Also Eligible

9 Hidalgo Legacy(L1) 119 Velasquez x-x-x Galluscio 8-1

Westerday is working with a purpose for debut; best guess in field of newcomers. Effie Trinket fetched $130k at April OBS sales. Sharon Spagetti attracted Dominguez for first start for Rudy Rodriguez.

6 Metaurus(L) 114 Garcia 3-1-5 Gullo 6-1

7 Regal Strike(L) 121 Dominguez 2-4-7 Dutrow, Jr 5-2

Enclosure logged breakthrough pace and final figs when a 91/4-length winner at Indiana Downs last time; ready for prime time. For All Who Conga, another last-race winner, makes first start for high-powered Jamie Ness barn; very dangerous. Temecula Creek owns fast numbers on 'A' game but is questionable at the distance.

4

7 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $60,000.

1 Milkyyourway(L1) 119 Napravnik x-x-x Schettino 6-1

7 Typhoon Teri(L) 119 Castellano 4-3-x Galluscio 4-1

8 Kellster(L1) 119 Velazquez x-x-x Contessa 5-1

Typhoon Teri logged good figures in both starts and notched sharp 5-furlong breeze last week. Divadora is firing bullets for first start since 12-week freshener; very playable. Islarama earned field's top number when second two starts back; rebound potential.

5

51/2 Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). 2yo. Fillies. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $80,000.

13 Cindy Says 119 Lezcano x-x-x Clement 5-1

14 Endless Chatter(L1) 119 No Rider x-x-x Brown 7-2

Insolvent set hot splits in debut and is from a dam that's produced two turf winners. Sunset Time logged five tight works for return from 51-day absence; dangerous. Worthwhilepursuit debuts for Pletcher after compiling sharp string of 5-furlong drills; could be the goods.

6

1 Mile. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $65,000.

1 Nobody Cares(L) 119 Lezcano 4-x-x Galluscio 15-1

13 Yes It's Pink(L) 119 Leparoux 3-x-x Clement 9-5

14 Mighty Reward(L) 119 Bridgmohan 8-7-2 Shuman 12-1

Mela Dramatically made sustained middle move in last start and logged fast late pace fig in prior outing; set for best. Stock Fund has finished second in last four starts; always a bridesmaid? Eurokay By Me was pace and position compromised in last; price will be tempting.

7

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

2 Hooked Forever(L1) 119 Castro x-x-x Ryerson 12-1

3 Smooth Bert(L1) 119 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Gyarmati 15-1

1a Becker's Galaxy(L1) 119 Velasquez x-x-x Galluscio 12-1

Richiesbronxbomber bested a next-out winner when a clear-cut second in last. Tweet Me was second to a runaway winner in debut; very dangerous. Weekend Hideaway is another that finished in runner-up spot in last; could easily get major award today.

8

61/2 Furlongs. 3&up. NY Bred. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $64,000.

1 Recurring Dream 117 Singh 4-6-3 Barker 10-1

2 Southbeachsandy(L) 121 Velazquez 8-4-2 Dutrow 15-1

3 Wee Freudian(L) 121 Velasquez 2-6-4 Schosberg 5-1

4 Manteca(L) 121 Maragh 2-1-4 Englehart 3-1

6 Law Enforcement(L) 121 Garcia 5-6-1 Hennig 12-1

7 Indy Tune(L) 121 Montanez 8-4-5 Allard 30-1

8 Driven by Success(L) 121 Castellano 7-4-6 Levine 4-1

9 Saratoga Snacks(L) 117 Dominguez 1-1-2 Sciacca 5-2

Manteca is fresh and consistently earns the field's fastest final figures. Law Enforcement gets class relief and could be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Driven By Success stopped in last but should be tighter in second start since January.

9

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3yo. THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF RACING HALL OF FAME. (Grade II). Purse: $200,000.

2 Shkspeare Shaliyah(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 4-10-6 Shivmangal 20-1

3 Yari(L) 119 Napravnik 1-1-2 Brown 7-2

4 Csaba(L) 115 Leparoux 1-3-1 Gleaves 4-1

1a Optimizer(L) 115 Alvarado 4-10-6 Lukas 3-1

5 Spring to the Sky(L) 115 Castellano 3-5-2 Brown 12-1

6 Quick Wit(L) 115 Lanerie 5-1-2 Romans 8-1

7 Daddy Nose Best(L) 115 Dominguez 4-9-10 Asmussen 2-1

Main Track Only

8 Raconteur(L) 122 No Rider 11-1-7 Pletcher 5-1

Csaba demolished a field of five at Crc last out and should transfer razor-sharp form to Spa sod. Shkspeare Shaliyah was vanned off after last start but packs a very powerful late kick on 'A' game; big-time danger if all is well. Yari logged wire-to-wire wins in last two starts and could play out as the main speed once again; very playable.

10

51/2 Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $37,000.

2 Beautiful Affair(L) 117 Dominguez 2-4-5 Stidham 3-1

1 Miss Woods(L) 121 Lezcano 1-7-5 Englehart 8-1

3 Theatre Queen(L) 117 Napravnik 9-7-1 Canani 15-1

8 Elusive Jozi(L) 121 Cohen 1-3-4 Englehart 4-1

9 Flying Sappho(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 7-5-5 Rodriguez 6-1

10 Sotique(L) 121 Garcia 5-3-6 Ribaudo 8-1

Also Eligible

11 Beppj(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 10-12-1 Sciacca 30-1

Main Track Only

12 Natalie Victoria(L) 121 No Rider 6-3-11 Jacobson 4-1

13 Wise Choice(L) 121 No Rider 1-4-3 Sciacca 10-1

1a Sansannah(L) 121 No Rider 8-7-3 Englehart 8-1

Blondecat has been on the bench since April but was a winner after similar layoff last summer; rested and ready. Miss Woods was a fast-figured, front-running winner in last at FL; big-time threat. Notell could impact if fractions get hot and hectic; very tempting. Beautiful Affair logged two, crisp half-mile works since clear-cut second in last; right in the thick of this.
