6 One Turn Eddie(L) 120 Lopez 1-3-3 Rodriguez 5-2

7 Inherit the Gold(L) 122 Castro 3-1-3 Hooper 2-1

Inherit The Gold logged fast late pace and final figures when game third in last and should have more to give in third start since May. Good Prospect exits determined score on turf and owns win on winterized footing; big-time threat. Writingonthewall is speedy and rested; very dangerous.

1 Known Gambler(L) 121 Alvarado 6-5-5 Contessa 3-1

7 Champleve(L) 114 Pedroza 6-5-9 Galluscio 10-1

8 Miami Hammer(L) 122 Valdivia, Jr 2-3-5 Zito 7-5

Champleve owns sprinter's speed and projects as the controlling front-runner with stretchout to route; call based on price. Miami Hammer has finished second at short odds in last two starts; bad trend? Ionized exits breakthrough placing in last at Mth; developing and dangerous.

6 Furlongs. 2yo. Fillies. ONLY QUEENS. Purse: $60,000.

1 Revenue(L) 120 Maragh 2-1-x Dutrow, Jr 3-1

2 Play With Me(L) 120 Garcia 1-2-x McLaughlin 2-1

4 Red's Round Table(L) 122 Rocco, Jr 1-6-1 Keefe 5-1

5 Le Mi Geaux(L) 122 Valdivia, Jr 9-5-1 Dutrow, Jr 5-1

Red's Round Table tallied swift internal and final numbers when winning on Oct. 27 at Delaware and fired 5-furlong bullet for return. Play With Me is another that's logged rapid 5-furlong drill since scoring in last at Del; very playable. Le Mi Geaux is a fresh and rested runner from Rick Dutrow barn; must respect.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $12,500. Purse: $16,000.

1 Soo's Purse(L) 122 Thompson 9-6-4 Alvarez 12-1

8 Charmed(L) 121 Santiago 4-2-5 Donk 5-2

9 Persephone(L) 114 Rodriguez 7-3-x Shivmangal 7-2

Clap Hands goes turf-to-dirt and cuts back to sprint and should pack amplified punch in weak field. Persephone is speedy and could prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Soo's Purse fired half-mile bullet since being eased in last; dangerous if all is well.

6 Furlongs. 2yo. Fillies. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $19,000.

1 Dance Card Filled(L) 120 Alvarado 7-10-4 Contessa 10-1

8 Miss Crabtree(L) 113 Amaro 8-8-8 Lotruglio 50-1

9 Golden Ladder(L1) 120 Lezcano x-x-x Hernandez, Jr 15-1

Private Escort gets class relief after speed and fade in first start since three-month absence; tighter today. Mound Key is fresh and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; big-time threat. Smooth Bore should move forward after tough-trip fourth in debut; dangerous.

1 Mile. 3&up. Claiming $15,000. Purse: $21,000.

1 High Stakes Player(L) 120 Cohen 6-1-2 Englehart 5-1

2 Millennium Jet(L) 120 Torres 8-8-8 Pringle 30-1

3 Ziptronic(L) 120 Alvarado 2-4-7 Contessa 9-5

5 Fortunate Run(L) 119 Pezua 4-8-5 Chatterpaul 8-1

6 I'll Buy(L) 120 Alvarado 5-1-1 Conway, Jr 6-1

7 Rigby(L) 120 Lopez 9-1-4 Asmussen 3-1

8 Game Token(L) 119 Luzzi 1-4-5 Contessa 8-1

I'll Buy logged fast final fractions on Woodbine's Polytrack and could receive ideal front-end setup in local debut. High Stakes Player exits sprint tightener in last and owns fast back figures. Rigby returns to dirt and could play out as the main speed. Ziptronic exits game second in last; right in the thick of this.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 2yo. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $41,000.

1 Prowler(L) 122 Chavez 2-7-x Callejas 10-1

2 Grey Foose(L) 122 Alvarado 6-x-x Contessa 7-5

3 Moody Majesty 122 Lezcano 4-5-3 Ryerson 20-1

6 Brothers Outlaw(L) 122 Hill 2-3-4 Martin 8-1

7 Able Bellamy(L) 122 Cohen 4-x-x Stoklosa 9-2

8 Rocky World(L) 122 Luzzi 3-7-4 Metivier 15-1

9 Tap Attack(L) 122 Prado 4-5-8 Schwartz 10-1

Able Bellamy tallied deceptively fast final fraction when rallying in sprint debut and should be aided by today's added ground. Brothers Outlaw was second to a much-the-best winner last time; speedy and dangerous. Prowler stretches to two turns and starts from best seat in the house; worth long look.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. SKY BEAUTY. Purse: $60,000.

1 Wind Caper(L) 118 Solis 1-1-4 Hushion 5-2

2 Poovey(L) 120 Cohen 2-6-2 Levine 5-1

3 Check Point(L) 122 Alvarado 1-2-1 Goldberg 2-1

4 Diva's Gold(L) 118 Pennington 2-2-6 Reid, Jr 6-1

5 Muhaawara(L) 116 Garcia 1-3-5 McLaughlin 4-1

6 Nicksappealinglady(L) 120 Luzzi 4-5-2 Contessa 10-1

Check Point made strong six wide run to capture last at Mth and could offer best price potential of the contenders in Sky Beauty Stakes. Wind Caper was top-figured winner of sprint last and could play out as the controlling front-runner on the fence. Poovey is fleet-footed, but has been on the sidelines since August; must take the good with the bad.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $19,000.

2 All Zipped Up(L) 121 Espinoza 3-6-2 Rodriguez 2-1

7 Settop(L) 114 Rodriguez 7-9-8 Ferraro 30-1

8 Tree Surgeon(L) 121 Lopez 6-2-2 D'Alessandro 3-1

1a Mount Karakorum(L) 121 Luzzi 5-8-2 Odintz 7-2

9 Smarteralex(L) 116 Amaro 8-4-10 Cedano 20-1

Mount Karakorum is 0-for-25, but gets favorable cutback to sprint and owns field's fastest figures on 'A' game. Tree Surgeon faced winners in last at FL and now drops in with maiden claimers; very dangerous. All Zipped Up hails from Rudy Rodriguez barn; must respect. Z Bug is lightly raced and has ample room for improvement.
