1a Missile Motor(L) 121 Cohen 1-2-1 Jacobson 6-5

7 Chromospere(L) 121 Velasquez 3-1-4 Rodriguez 7-2

Jacobson entry: Missile Motor and Brilliant Son consistently log field's fastest figures; call in unplayable opener. Chromospere makes peak start of form cycle for Rudy Rodriguez barn; must consider. Truffle Man owns swift numbers on 'A' game.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt). Claiming $7,500. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $17,000.

1 Doree Daze 114 Rodriguez 7-10-4 Figueroa 15-1

2 Primed to Be Ready(L) 120 Valdivia, Jr 7-1-4 Toscano, Jr 3-1

3 Mindbender(L) 114 Petrecca 5-12-5 Barbara 10-1

4 La Belle Gabrielle(L) 120 Castellano 6-1-3 Martin 4-1

5 A Word to the Wise(L) 121 Alvarado 7-11-6 Pringle 12-1

6 Minister's Fate(L) 120 Davis 2-4-1 Signore, Jr 5-1

7 Lady Apple(L) 113 Amaro 7-7-10 Callejas 30-1

8 Jacky Juice(L) 120 Cohen 2-1-2 Jacobson 9-5

Minister's Fate logged fast final fraction in last and could receive nice setup in probable pace dynamics. Primed To Be Ready didn't care for slop last time, but drops today and should improve on dry land. Jacky Juice, second to a dominant winner last time, is lightly raced and has ample room for improvement.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt). Claiming $20,000-$18,000. 3&up. Purse: $28,000.

1 My Golden Opinion(L) 120 Cohen 5-5-2 Jacobson 7-2

2 The Roundhouse(L) 118 Lezcano 2-5-2 Persaud 12-1

3 Cires(L) 121 Velasquez 5-1-1 Levine 7-2

4 Jala Fever(L) 120 Garcia 1-1-11 Rodriguez 3-1

5 Sly(L) 120 Castellano 5-2-5 Contessa 10-1

6 Fastus Cactus(L) 121 Dominguez 1-8-1 Chatterpaul 2-1

Cires gets class relief after earning improved internal numbers in last; stalker's style proves the key. Fastus Cactus was front-running winner in last and could play out as the main speed once again; very dangerous. Jala Fever has won two straight since moving to Rudy Rodriguez barn; big-time player.

11/16 Mile. (Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $45,000.

1 Tutti Va Bene(L) 120 Cohen 2-1-3 Sciacca 5-2

2 Mustang Fever(L) 120 Prado 1-3-5 Rodriguez 6-1

3 Mesa Girl(L) 120 Samyn 5-3-2 Ortiz 15-1

4 Princess Maura(L) 120 Velasquez 3-5-2 Schosberg 3-1

5 Triple Tax Exempt(L) 120 Dominguez 7-3-6 Domino 6-1

6 Rogue's Jewel(L) 118 Velazquez 2-5-1 Martin 5-1

7 Zip by You(L) 120 Garcia 4-7-4 Rodriguez 8-1

8 Loyal Shadow(L) 121 Valdivia, Jr 5-1-6 Sciacca 12-1

9 Miss Dolan's Rose(L) 113 Amaro 1-3-2 DiSanto 15-1

Main Track Only

10 Spa City Princess(L) 118 Chavez 4-8-7 Kelly 3-1

11 Amiga Del Sol(L) 118 Solis 3-1-4 Kimmel 4-1

Triple Tax Exempt logged deceptively fast final fraction when a close-up seventh in last and should move forward in second start since two-month layoff. Zip By You owns sprinter's speed and could prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Tutti Va Bene and Princess Maura were separated by just a nose when second and third, respectively, on Nov. 12; both figure right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt). Maiden Claiming $25,000. 2yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Purse: $21,000.

1 Sounds Freudian(L) 113 Amaro 5-3-9 Schwartz 8-1

8 Real Charmer(L) 120 Valdivia, Jr 4-9-5 Callejas 5-1

9 Missysmoonlitmagic(L) 120 Castro 3-x-x Conway, Jr 4-1

10 Play by the Rules(L) 120 Hill 7-2-2 Kravets 15-1

Sounds Freudian drops after tough trip in last; weakness of field is selection's strength. Gleaming Lady fired half-mile bullet for first start versus NY breds; dangerous. Lucky Leslie was clear-cut second behind runaway winner in last; logical player.

1 1/16 Mile. (Turf). Claiming $16,000. 3&up. Purse: $23,000.

1 Hawser(L) 120 Jara 10-1-2 Boniface 8-1

9 Tiger Willie 119 Prado 3-7-1 Parisella 4-1

10 The Plot Thickens(L) 120 Chavez 5-8-7 Martin, Sr. 30-1

Also Eligible

12 Ziptronic(L) 120 Cohen 4-7-5 Contessa 5-2

13 Prince Dubai(L) 120 Castellano 8-8-5 Gyarmati 12-1

Main Track Only

14 Ticondero(L) 119 Cohen 2-1-5 Jacobson 2-1

15 Show Trial(L) 119 Dominguez 3-1-2 Imperio 8-5

16 Next Day(L) 120 Lezcano 6-5-3 Persaud 8-1

Thabazimbi is fresh, drops and could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive handling. Hawser is also rested and gets class relief and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Monastir packs a potent stretch punch on best efforts; price will be tempting.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt). Claiming $15,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $18,000.

1 Roaring Aly(L) 120 Prado 4-6-8 Schettino 10-1

8 Amply Rewarded(L) 110 Petrecca 8-3-1 Galluscio 12-1

9 Our Montana Dream(L) 114 Amaro 7-9-6 Lotruglio 50-1

Curlina logged three tightly grouped works for first start in 65 days and owns fast figures on 'A' game. Over Served tallied solid final fraction when second at this level in last; very playable. Shaker Lakes was determined winner in last and has improved noticeably since moving to Contessa barn; don't ignore.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $49,000.

1 Ain't Love Grand(L) 120 Cohen 1-2-7 Jacobson 5-1

2 Granted Tiger(L) 120 Velasquez 6-4-4 Jerkens 12-1

3 Electric Gold(L) 120 Castellano 1-2-5 Brown 3-1

4 Wild News(L) 119 Dominguez 1-2-3 Parisella 8-1

6 Proud Zoe(L) 119 Velazquez 2-1-1 Pletcher 7-2

7 Fleeting Humor(L) 119 Luzzi 5-1-1 Goldberg 5-1

8 Purrfect Bluff(L) 120 Lezcano 1-1-1 Dutrow, Jr 4-1

Purrfect Bluff makes first start since claimed by Rick Dutrow and owns late-running style that should be well served in probable pace dynamics. Ain't Love Grand logged four closely spaced works since convincing victory in last; big-time player. Proud Zoe is rested and delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistencty; dangerous. Fleeting Humor will be aided by cutback to sprint.

9

11/16 Mile. (Turf). Maiden Claiming $25,000. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $22,000.

1 Gasper C.(L) 121 Lezcano 3-6-11 Rossi 15-1

2 Ready for Ryan(L) 121 Hill 8-6-10 Jerkens 15-1

3 Crescent Moon Dr(L) 114 Rodriguez 6-11-7 Sciacca 30-1

4 Katy's Office Girl(L) 118 Dominguez 8-2-2 Rice 5-2

5 Mount Karakorum(L) 121 Luzzi 8-2-2 Odintz 12-1

6 Won O Won(L) 121 Lezcano 6-5-4 Levine 3-1

7 All Zipped Up(L) 121 Espinoza 3-6-2 Rodriguez 10-1

8 Porcello(L) 121 Cohen 2-2-6 Contessa 5-1

9 Felice Di Notte(L) 121 Alvarado 7-3-4 Sciacca 10-1

10 Sundae's a Meese(L) 118 Velasquez 3-3-3 Rice 4-1

Also Eligible

11 Beth's Kitten(L) 121 Garcia 6-6-7 Maker 3-1

12 Unforgettable P J(L) 121 Gonzalez 3-5-9 Ortiz 12-1

13 Majesty's Pilgrim(L) 122 Espinoza 10-9-4 Tschan 20-1

Porcello is riding a forward line on pace and final figures and switches to turf with suitable pedigree; three 5-furlong drills since last start seals the deal. Katy's Office Girl makes first start with maiden claiming tag after failing as the favorite in last; logical. Won O Won is another that takes potent class drop and owns fast late pace figures on best efforts. Felice Di Notte will be aided by return to grass.
