Best Bet: SMOOTH KAHLUA (9); Best Value: VINNIES WILD TALE (5)1

1 1/16 Mile. Claiming $15,000. 4&up. Purse: $18,000. NY Bred.

(All races on inner dirt). Post - 1 p.m.

1 Kick Up Your Heels(L) 5-4-4 Saez Martin, Sr. 120 20-1

2 Eddie's Point(L) 1-4-3 Musarro Lotruglio 116 5-1

3 Patent Pending Tom(L) 3-3-8 Espinoza Fisher 120 6-1

4 No Bloviating(L) 4-5-3 Dominguez Contessa 120 7-2

5 Sir Cryptomite(L) 6-9-6 Lezcano Jeannont 115 30-1

6 Island Son(L) 7-10-1 Hill Duggan 120 12-1

7 Crazy Charlie(L) 7-4-2 Napravnik Aquilino 120 5-2

8 Nolite Timere(L) 2-2-3 Davis Ferraro 120 3-1

Nolite Timere is 1-for-37 but owns fastest figures in weak N2L field. Patent Pending Tom was just nose behind top selection in last; must consider. No Bloviating finished well behind top pair on Feb. 19, but is lightly raced with ample room for improvement.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $42,000.

1 Mr. Grievance(L) 1-1-4 Cohen Asmussen 120 1-1

2 Giant Ryan(L) 2-9-5 Migliore Parboo 118 5-1

3 Monte Carlo(L) 6-5-1 Dominguez Dutrow 118 10-1

4 Gold Vendetta(L) 3-2-1 Serpa Jacobson 115 6-1

5 Driven by Solar(L) 1-1-5 Jara Pletcher 120 3-1

6 Brecciate(L) 4-9-1 Musarro Ribaudo 111 10-1

Mr. Grievance has won last two by combined 22 3/4 lengths and looms the main speed on the rail. Driven By Solar will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Gold Vendetta is riding an improving line on the numbers; price will be tempting.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $44,000.

1 Cinderella's Wish(L) 8-7-2 Shepherd Shuman 120 8-1

2 Puddy de Luca(L) 8-3-2 Carmouche Reid 120 6-1

3 Dana's Bell(L) 4-4-2 Napravnik Contessa 121 5-1

4 Sneaky Girl(L) 3-4-7 Dominguez Rodriguez 120 6-1

1a Dubit(L) 4-4-2 Shepherd Shuman 120 8-1

5 La Concerto(L) 2-1-1 Lopez Asmussen 120 1-2

La Concerto owns speed and fast figures; short price is the knock. Shuman entry: Cinderella's Wish is firing bullets for return and mate Dubit drops and should improve in second start of year; just one goes with Shepherd listed on both. Dana's Bell owns competitive numbers on best.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $10,000. 3&up. Purse: $14,000.

1 Love of Life(L) 3-7-7 Bocachica Lotruglio 121 10-1

2 Haitian Sensation(L) 2-8-8 Cohen Jacobson 121 7-2

3 Fuzzy's Story(L) 3-2-9 Dominguez Contessa 116 3-1

4 Turnpike Token(L) 6-1-8 Luzzi Benzel 116 15-1

5 I'm Hooked Up(L) 7-1-4 Serpa Callejas 113 15-1

6 Driven by Royal(L) 2-7-4 Lopez Jeannont 121 5-1

7 Missing Link(L) 4-2-5 Napravnik Rice 116 4-1

8 We Get It(L) 5-1-5 Bermudez Gullo 121 6-1

9 Loopy de Loop(L) 6-4-2 Gomez Attwood 121 30-1

Driven By Royal logged improved late pace and final figures when second last time and could pair up big efforts before the bounce. Fuzzy's Story is speedy and takes potent class drop; likely prohibitive price is the problem. Haitian Sensation is fresh and logged fast figures on the inner track last winter; big-time player.

1 Mile. Claiming $10,000. 4&up. Purse: $15,000.

1 Lohad(L) 3-3-4 Lopez Asmussen 118 2-1

2 Charing Cross(L) 3-7-6 Serpa Gyarmati 113 12-1

3 Turaath(L) 1-3-2 Dominguez Contessa 118 6-5

4 Ecru Egret(L) 5-5-5 Musarro Persaud 111 20-1

5 Wonderous Day(L) 6-2-4 Davis Terracciano 118 15-1

6 Ghostfighter(L) 7-3-4 Alvarado Coffey 118 50-1

7 Vinnies Wild Tale(L) 4-1-1 Lopez Barrera 113 6-1

8 Mr. Jolson(L) 6-3-5 Bocachica Grusmark 118 12-1

Vinnies Wild Tale took a backward step in last after pairing up wins in prior two starts; rebounds at a playable price. Turaath exits visually impressive score in last and now makes first start since claimed by Contessa; paltry price is the problem. Mr. Jolson's speed must be respected; very interesting at fat odds.

1 Mile. Maiden Claiming $12,500. 3&up. Purse: $15,000.

1 St. Augustine(L) 6-3-3 Cohen Zito 123 5-1

2 Mugger Hugger(L) 4-5-8 Gomez Creary 123 20-1

3 Mystic Era(L1) 5-5-8 Bocachica Toscano 116 20-1

4 Napkins(L) 5-4-5 Migliore Hennig 123 8-1

5 Numerous One(L) 5-5-8 Corujo Quiles 116 50-1

6 Retake(L) 7-7-5 Saez D'Alessandro 123 4-1

7 Two Times Good(L) 9-7-8 Lopez DeMola 116 50-1

8 Bad Debt(L) 4-5-x Napravnik Brown 116 2-1

9 Its a Whopper(L) 6-7-8 Musarro Parker 116 50-1

10 Book(L) 2-2-3 Serpa Callejas 118 5-2

Retake is fresh and drops to career low in 4-year-old debut; breakthrough effort predicted. Bad Debt gets added ground after two sprints and barn excels with stretch-out types; big-time player. Book will prove a tough customer on a soft lead; very playable. St. Augustine owns fast figures on best efforts; must consider.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $7,500. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $13,000.

1 Cat Grace(L) 7-9-7 Bocachica Lotruglio 120 50-1

2 Blah Blah Blah(L) 4-4-7 Hill Galluscio 120 6-1

3 Super Child(L) 7-4-3 Cohen Jacobson 120 5-1

4 For Free(L) 5-3-5 Cobb Ronen 110 6-1

5 O'Sotopretty(L) 4-4-1 Studart Chatterpaul 120 3-1

6 Gracious Victory(L) 3-2-4 Dominguez Dutrow 120 2-1

7 Mama Brown(L) 4-8-3 Serpa Autrey 115 10-1

8 Hazaam's Back(L) 3-5-1 Chavez Barker 121 8-1

Hazaam's Back weakened in last but should move forward in fourth start since six-month layoff; main speed. Gracious Victory logged two-move third when part of odds-on entry in last; logical short-priced contender once again. O'Sotopretty is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $42,000.

1 Idon'tlikeanyone(L) 6-4-2 Musarro Ruiz 112 15-1

1a Brief the Lady(L) 5-6-7 Musarro Ruiz 112 15-1

2 Anjorie(L) 4-6-1 Lezcano Baker 114 6-1

3 Goodday(L) 2-3-2 Dominguez Dutrow 119 5-2

4 My Anguilla(L) 4-1-2 Jara Hushion 119 4-1

5 Shot Gun Gal(L) 1-2-5 Lopez Rice 121 7-2

6 Citifiesta(L) 4-5-1 Samyn Hertler 121 8-1

7 Chicks Are Better(L) 1-6-8 Migliore Levine 119 4-1

Shot Gun Gal had a month to recover after fast-figured victory last time; more to come. Goodday was done in by hot fractions in last and could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Anjorie compiled a tightly grouped work tab for first start in 83 days; dangerous on best.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $15,000. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $15,000.

1 Cash Is Cohen(L1) x-x-x Hill Schettino 120 6-1

2 Ashley's Mission x-x-x Musarro Alvarez 113 30-1

3 Smooth Kahlua(L) 6-3-3 Santiago Brown 120 3-1

4 Nicoletti(L) 9-6-5 Davis Tasso 120 5-1

5 Trial by Fire(L) 8-6-x Serpa Hernandez 115 20-1

6 Bold Direction(L1) x-x-x Lopez Rice 120 4-1

7 Timber Cat(L) 6-3-7 Napravnik Bush 120 4-1

8 My Pal Tom(L) 10-x-x Alvarado Conway 120 20-1

9 Mount Karakorum(L) 6-4-6 Studart Odintz 120 12-1

10 Robin Woke Up(L1) 7-7-x Lezcano Schwartz 115 12-1

Smooth Kahlua turns back to sprint and will pack intensified wallop in weak nightcap. Timber Cat is fresh and rested and could easily take this on best efforts. Robin Woke Up could wakeup with addition of Lasix today. Nicoletti would be aided by pace meltdown.
