1 Mile. 4&up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $19,000.

Post - 12:30 p.m.2 Corvo(L) 123 Santiago 5-8-2 Tannuzzo 20-1

4 Stopbluffing(L) 123 Luzzi 2-2-5 Brown 2-1

5 Charing Cross(L) 123 Castro 4-5-5 Gyarmati 15-1

1 Good Karma(L) 123 Alvarado 5-8-6 Martin, Sr. 3-1

6 Mizzen's Wake(L) 123 Velasquez 4-4-5 Rice 8-5

7 Rampant(L) 123 Davis 10-4-6 Signore, Jr 20-1

1a French Transition(L) 123 Alvarado 5-4-7 Martin, Sr. 3-1

Mizzen's Wake tallied swift late pace figure when a two-move fourth last out; rates close nod in weak opener. Good Karma is riding a forward line on the numbers and now gets class relief; demand value on barn that's 0-for-49 at meeting. Stopbluffing exits game placing on New Year's Eve and owns foundation on the final numbers; dangerous.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $42,000.

1 Deflate the Bubble(L) 122 Alvarado 2-6-x Violette, Jr 5-1

5 Blues Heir(L) 122 Luzzi 2-x-x Perkins, Jr 12-1

6 Kinkora(L) 122 Velasquez 3-2-5 Albertrani 4-1

Saratoga Fling compiled steadily intensifying work tab for first start in 49 days; primed and ready. Channel logged solid final fraction when second to a repeat winner in last; very playable. A Wink And A Smile is training consistently for first start since July and earned fast numbers in both starts.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $20,000-$18,000. Purse: $20,000.

1 Besa Me Por Favor(L) 121 Singh 8-6-5 Parker 30-1

2 Truth Will Tell(L) 123 Castro 4-2-2 Baker 7-2

3 Miss Vindictive(L) 118 Kaplan 9-5-8 Hertler 12-1

4 Shalaka(L) 123 Luzzi 2-3-2 Bond 3-1

5 Rock Star Royalty(L) 116 Maragh 6-5-2 Brown 5-1

6 Halls Road(L) 123 Cohen 12-x-x Pletcher 6-5

Miss Vindictive is rested and returns to dirt and could be sitting on wakeup in soft field. Truth Will Tell earned very fast number when second in most recent dirt start; prohibitive price is the problem. Rock Star Royalty needed last and could be sitting on big-time improvement in second start since 15-month layoff; don't ignore.

4

1 Mile. 3yo. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $39,000.

1 Tycoon Cat(L) 120 Alvarado 6-8-x Maker 10-1

2 With a Cape(L) 120 Hill 5-x-x Ubillo 15-1

3 Raffie's Choice(L) 120 Castro 5-4-3 Ryerson 6-1

4 Nub Thrower(L1) 120 Studart x-x-x Ubillo 15-1

5 One Way to Rock(L) 120 Luzzi 4-x-x Gullo 2-1

6 Brothers Outlaw(L) 115 Pedroza 4-2-3 Martin 4-1

7 Tap Attack(L) 120 Cohen 3-4-5 Schwartz 3-1

8 Greeley's Law(L) 120 Lopez 9-4-7 DiSanto 10-1

Raffie's Choice was pace compromised in last and could be sitting in the garden spot at fat ticket if front-runner hits the wall in the lane. One Way To Rock owns sprinter's speed and could prove very tough on soft lead; very dangerous. Tap Attack consistently earns fast numbers; logical, short-priced player.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $15,000. Purse: $20,000.

1 Thundered(L) 116 Pedroza 1-3-3 Grusmark 10-1

2 Isn't She Grand(L) 120 Lopez 1-3-2 Englehart 7-2

7 Lights Out Lisa(L) 120 Luzzi 9-3-1 Galluscio 3-1

8 Kinsey(L) 120 Velasquez 9-6-4 Asmussen 5-2

Isn't She Grand gets price hike after confident victory in last; more to come. Kinsey is fleet-footed and fresh and now drops to lifetime low; big-time threat if all is well. Lights Out Lisa is another speedy class dropper that owns fast figures; could easily take this.

6

1 Mile. 4&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $22,000.

1 Headingtothecity(L) 120 Castro 7-11-1 Schettino 10-1

2 Giopi(L) 120 Rivera 9-2-4 Baker 20-1

3 Con the Cat(L) 123 Chavez 5-1-7 Kelly 15-1

4 Gamblin Fever(L) 120 Espinoza 6-8-4 Ortiz 20-1

5 Bulls and Bears(L) 120 Alvarado 6-3-5 Violette, Jr 3-1

6 Fiery Forest(L) 123 Valdivia, Jr 4-1-2 Duggan 6-1

7 Raphael Alexandro(L) 120 Lopez 2-8-1 Asmussen 2-1

8 Warrant Ofc. Cook(L) 120 Velasquez 4-3-1 Dutrow, Jr 3-1

Headingtothecity was speed sharpened in sprint return and could play out as the controlling front-runner from the fence with aggressive handling. Raphael Alexandro was fast-figured second as the favorite in last; logical, short-priced player once again. Gamblin Fever would be aided by hot fractions; price will be tempting.

7

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

1 Bells of Concerto(L) 118 Alvarado 2-3-2 Volk 3-1

2 Star Orchid(L) 118 Velasquez 3-8-1 Asmussen 5-2

3 Stormandaprayer(L) 118 Cohen 6-7-3 Pletcher 9-5

4 Flying Wildcat(L) 113 Pedroza 6-3-3 Maroun 50-1

5 Annual Appeal(L) 118 Da Silva 3-2-1 Brown 6-1

6 Joyce's Angel(L) 118 Castro 3-1-2 White 8-1

7 Alla Prima(L) 118 Lopez 3-1-6 Zito 15-1

Annual Appeal consistently logs the field's fastest late pace figures and could receive ideal setup in field with sufficient speed. Star Orchid was sharp third in last and should have more to give in second start since 80-day layoff. Bells Of Concerto held a neck to the good on Star Orchid after battling up front and owns foundation on the numbers; very dangerous.

8

6 Furlongs. 3yo. JIMMY WINKFIELD STAKES. Purse: $65,000.

1 Rift(L) 116 Velasquez 1-2-2 Dutrow, Jr 8-5

2 Fort Hughes(L) 116 Castro 2-1-x McLaughlin 9-5

3 Royal Currier(L) 122 Elliott 1-1-2 Farro 4-1

4 Bambi Bound(L) 116 Cohen 1-5-1 Levine 6-1

5 Bravo Romeo(L) 116 Alvarado 1-6-1 Rodriguez 15-1

6 Running Tap(L) 116 Jara 2-5-3 Weaver 15-1

Royal Currier fired eye-catching 5-furlong bullet since game score in last at Pha; rates close call in ultra-contentious Jimmy Winkfield. Rift was wire-to-wire winner in last and could play out as the main speed once again. Bambi Bound, another last-race winner, could be in the catbird seat if pace gets hot and hectic.

9

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Allowance. Purse: $41,000.

1 My Honey Laurie(L) 118 Alvarado 4-1-1 Brown 5-1

2 Katy's Office Girl(L) 115 Pedroza 1-3-8 Rice 7-5

3 Hear Her Roar(L) 118 Hill 1-1-6 Martin 20-1

8 Downtown Hottie(L) 118 Espinoza 3-6-3 O'Brien 6-1

9 Poppy Day(L) 118 Velasquez 7-1-5 Albertrani 3-1

10 Sheisnobedofroses 118 Thompson 1-x-x Chin 30-1

Also Eligible

11 Wynot Siyue(L) 118 Davis 2-5-3 Coffey 20-1

12 Alykela(L) 118 Alvarado 5-4-2 DiSanto 20-1

13 Myrtle's Gray(L) 118 Valdivia, Jr 3-3-4 Duggan 9-2

14 Moshe Diane(L) 118 Santiago 4-4-2 Donk 5-1

15 Nina's Spirit(L) 118 Lezcano 7-1-3 Ferraro 20-1

Katy's Office Girl was a hand-ridden winner on New Year's Eve and still-developing 4-year-old should have more to give in wide-open nightcap. Hear Her Roar unleashed sustained rally to tally second victory in a row last out; price will be tempting. Lindsay's Point is riding a forward line on the numbers and owns fast back figures; don't dismiss. My Honey Laurie packs powerful late kick on best efforts; right in the thick of this.
