7 Assured Victory(L) 120 Espinoza 6-10-7 O'Brien 30-1

8 Benny Or Local(L) 120 Fragoso 6-x-x Perkins, Jr 15-1

Benny Or Local is training with a purpose for potent second-out stable; moves forward today. Harlan's Hello was an improved third with addition of blinkers last time; developing and dangerous. Galaxy Kat logged fast number in debut and fired crisp 5-furlong breeze last week; could easily take this.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Maiden Claiming $20,000-$18,000. Purse: $20,000.

1 Golden Temple(L) 120 Valdivia, Jr 7-4-5 Breen 3-1

6 Troop Support(L) 120 Dominguez 2-3-8 Asmussen 5-2

7 Ultimo Principe(L) 120 Luzzi 2-x-x Contessa 6-1

Camillus Drive takes big price plunge and projects as the main speed. Golden Temple makes first start with claiming tag and owns fast figures; very playable. Troop Support is speedy and rested; big-time threat. Ultimo Principe was second in heavily bet debut and now makes first start since claimed by Contessa; better price today.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3yo. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $45,000.

1 Brush Creek(L) 120 Franklin 1-2-2 Tullock, Jr 12-1

5 Bravo Romeo(L) 118 Velasquez 4-1-6 Rodriguez 4-1

6 Congo(L) 118 Cohen 1-9-5 Pletcher 5-2

Ruler On Ice earned fast late pace figure when winning sprint last fall and is working sharply for return. Congo gets confident price hike after clear-cut win in last; dangerous. Bravo Romeo owns fast sprint numbers but could be suspect at route; demand value. Brush Creek has speed and starts from the fence; worth long look.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $17,000.

2 Winitback(L) 114 Amaro 11-7-1 Grusmark 12-1

1 Dontquityourdayjob(L) 121 Davis 5-9-9 Martin, Sr. 20-1

7 Magic Max(L) 116 Kaplan 6-1-10 Contessa 4-1

8 Mo Dular(L) 116 Pedroza 6-7-3 Maroun 30-1

Idol Image packs a strong late kick in a field where the pace could get fast and furious. Devilish Due was a clear-cut winner for this price in last; could easily pair up at playable price. Magic Max regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; bounce-back potential. Talk To Nick was even fifth in last and should move forward in second start since November.

1 Mile. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $12,500. Purse: $16,000.

1 Persky's Love(L) 122 Thompson 6-6-6 Ortiz 30-1

8 Lovely Lina(L) 122 Lopez 9-9-8 Persaud 99-1

9 His Precious Lady(L1) 122 Chavez 7-7-7 DeMola 15-1

Back To Hurstland picks up Dominguez and meets woeful field in local debut. Soo's Purse was game second in last and should have more to give in fourth start of form cycle. No Imagination was favored when just length behind Soo's Purse on Jan. 14; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $19,000.

1 Blazin' Blues(L1) 122 Cohen x-x-x Englehart 3-1

2 Jetina(L) 122 Lopez 9-10-6 Barker 20-1

3 Soda Kaps(L) 122 Davis 4-5-2 Terracciano 10-1

4 My Snookie's Pal(L1) 122 Velasquez x-x-x Rice 7-2

5 One Spring Storm(L) 115 Rivera 5-5-4 Sedlacek 8-1

6 Magic Queen(L) 122 Thompson 5-6-4 Johnson 15-1

7 Lady Alma(L) 122 Espinoza 2-4-4 Kelly 4-1

8 Above the Call(L) 117 Pedroza 2-5-3 Hernandez 4-1

9 Jerboa(L1) 122 Lezcano x-x-x Lugovich 12-1

Lady Alma made wide move when besting a next-out winner last time and should get good setup in weak field. Soda Kaps displayed improved speed in same last race as top selection and could prove tough on soft lead. Above The Call exits solid placing in last and could have more to give in second start of form cycle; be no surprise.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $18,000.

1 Kiln Creek(L) 120 Espinoza 3-9-6 Barker 4-1

2 Dealing Lucky(L) 118 Velasquez 6-5-1 Brown 6-1

3 Timber Cruise(L) 118 Alvarado 9-7-2 Loaiza 8-1

4 Callmetony(L) 120 Dominguez 1-3-1 Levine 9-5

5 Coaltown Legend(L) 118 Cohen 1-4-3 Balsamo 7-2

6 Six Gun Sheriff 113 Rivera 5-1-7 Terracciano 15-1

7 Wadi Suki(L) 120 Castro 6-1-2 Persaud 10-1

8 Karakorum On Black(L) 120 Lezcano 5-6-1 Odintz 15-1

9 Cody Grove(L) 118 Davis 6-4-6 Henry 50-1

Coaltown Legend makes quick comeback after fast-figured victory at Pen last week; gives one more before the bounce. Timber Cruise was eased in last at FL but is 1-for-1 on inner track and will prove tough if not damaged goods. Wadi Suki and Six Gun Sheriff both regressed in their last start after fast-figured wins in prior outings; each can prove dangerous on the rebound. Karakorum On Black's speed gives him a puncher's chance.

11/8 Miles. 4&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $45,000.

1 Fine Flyer(L) 118 Velasquez 6-6-2 Rodriguez 5-1

5 J L Bernstein(L) 118 Espinoza 3-1-4 Chatterpaul 20-1

6 Wishful Tomcat(L) 118 Dominguez 5-3-1 Dutrow, Jr 2-5

7 Goodbyeandgoodluck(L) 118 Lopez 4-1-4 Hertler 20-1

Raffinator tallied swift late pace figure when a winner at today's 9-furlong trip; ability to handle distance is key. Wishful Tomcat owns very fast figures on best efforts but takes precipitous price plunge; fire sale? I've Got The Fever showed ability on inner surface last winter and is training with a purpose for comeback; Terranova barn is quietly enjoying strong meeting.

10 Goodnight Brad(L) 120 Lopez 3-4-4 Gullo 7-2

11 Market Analysis(L) 115 Pedroza 7-x-x Martin 8-1

Allen's Affair tallied improved final fraction in last and logged 5-furlong drill in the interim; breakthrough predicted. Honor Ernesto rushed into hot pace after stumbling at the start versus pricier group last out; very playable. Well Built drops and adds blinkers after folding as the favorite last time; dangerous. Goodnight Brad did the dirty work on the lead when a sharp third in last; right in the thick of this.
