7 Wing Glider(L) 116 Espinoza 3-2-4 Contessa 5-2

Wing Glider regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; rebounds. Troop Support drops and projects as the main speed; could easily take this. D'Bulldog is newcomer that warrants a look if money shows.

1 Tribeca(L) 118 Lopez 1-5-6 Donk 10-1

5 Full of Gut(L) 118 Velasquez 2-1-2 Brown 4-5

6 Mega Heir(L) 118 Fragoso 7-7-1 Perkins, Jr 15-1

Tribeca logged solid late pace figure when a hard charging winner in last; rail draw seals the deal. Curlina was front-running winner at this level in last and will prove tough on the lead once again. Saratoga Tiger is another last-race winner that will offer fat ticket; worth a look.

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

1 Black Diablo(L) 118 Luzzi 1-5-6 Tannuzzo 12-1

2 Simba's Story(L) 118 Cohen 1-2-3 Pletcher 8-5

3 Magical Myth(L) 118 Valdivia, Jr 5-1-x Breen 15-1

4 Dawly(L) 118 Velasquez 1-1-4 Asmussen 5-2

5 Arthur's Tale(L) 118 Lopez 4-4-1 Albertrani 9-5

Dawly bested a next-out winner when breaking maiden last month; rates close call based on price potential. Simba's Story tallied swift pace and final numbers when a wire-to-wire winner in last; could easily take another. Black Diablo wheels back in a hurry after ultra-game maiden victory this past Friday; don't ignore.

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

1 Buddy System 123 Morales 1-2-2 Tebbutt 3-1

2 Auric Girl(L) 120 Studart 2-6-5 Rojas 12-1

3 My Snookie's Pal(L) 123 Velasquez 1-2-x Rice 7-2

4 Stellars Theory(L) 116 Valdivia, Jr 1-3-6 Galluscio 5-1

8 Soda Kaps(L) 123 Davis 2-1-4 Terracciano 8-1

9 First Penny(L) 111 Pedroza 4-1-2 Martin 8-1

Buddy System was wire-to-wire maiden winner in last and looms the controlling speed once again. My Snookie's Pal, also broke maiden in last, has displayed strong closing kick in both stars; prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Stellars Theory, another last-race maiden winner, owns a favorable stalker's style; big-time danger. Soda Kaps runs late and could be in the garden spot if fractions get heated.

5

1 Mile and 70 Yards. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Starters Handicap. Purse: $30,000.

1 Pelican Lake(L) 113 Studart 6-3-1 Signore, Jr 15-1

7 Mesa Girl(L) 114 Espinoza 4-2-8 Ortiz 15-1

8 Cherokee Trick(L) 114 Castro 1-3-5 Tebbutt 8-1

E Z Passer was pole clear for second in last and consistently logs fast late pace figures. Cherokee Tribe is speedy and has won 10 races from 20 starts; very dangerous. Put Me First owns fast sprint figures; right in the thick of this if able to handle route.

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Ny Bred. Maiden Claiming $15,000. Purse: $17,000.

8 Kitty Kat Rockstar(L) 116 Hill 6-2-4 Martin 9-5

9 Outlaw Cody Z(L) 109 Amaro 12-x-x Morrison 15-1

Kitty Kat Rockstar starts from tough post, but holds an edge on the final numbers. Western Thriller was compromised by wide trip and slow fractions in last; must consider. Outlaw Cody Z is working with a purpose for first start since trailing in debut; wakeup possibility.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $21,000.

1 Suttle Rich(L) 120 Wolliaston 6-12-9 Chin 50-1

4 Sunday Splitsville(L) 115 Castro 2-4-5 Aquilino 6-1

5 Scorch the Torch(L) 120 Alvarado 2-3-3 Barker 2-1

6 Hardshell(L) 115 Lopez 2-5-5 Baker 6-5

Hardshell was top-figured second in last; repeat effort crushes these. Scorch The Torch consistently logs competitive numbers; dangerous. Sunday Splitsville could prove very tough on a soft lead.

8

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $46,000.

1 Bojan(L) 111 Rodriguez 4-2-1 Levine 7-2

2 No Questions(L) 118 Davis 5-6-4 Iselin 20-1

4 W. W.'s Lady's Man(L) 118 Santiago 5-2-6 Gullo 8-1

5 American Classic(L) 118 Castro 3-4-3 Schosberg 3-1

6 Saint Daimon(L) 120 Luzzi 1-5-5 Jerkens 4-1

American Classic tallied swift internal numbers when a tough-trip third in last; more to give today. Who's The Cowboy was compromised by soft fractions when an even third in last; big-time threat. Saint Daimon bested 'Cowboy' by nearly two lengths when an ultra-game winner off the bench last time; bounces today?

1 Mile. 3&up. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $15,000. Purse: $17,000.

1 Keyaly(L) 116 Alvarado 8-4-6 DiSanto 6-1

2 Broadway Philly(L) 123 Cohen 6-10-9 Kimmel 8-5

3 Uncommon Grounds(L) 116 Valdivia, Jr 6-6-x Galluscio 4-1

4 Zeppe(L) 116 Davis 6-8-x DeMola 20-1

5 Soft Parade(L) 116 Alvarado 4-7-3 Conway, Jr 8-1

6 McGee's Miricle(L) 123 Castro 5-4-3 Contessa 7-2

7 No More Taxes(L) 116 Rivera 3-4-4 Prine 10-1

8 Spencerific(L) 116 Rodriguez 6-5-8 Cedano 20-1

Broadway Philly tallied rapid pace figure in sprint last time and projects as the dominant speed at route in third start since layoff. McGee's Miracle, another that makes peak outing of form cycle, will be the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Keyaly spun his wheels in the slop last time, but could improve dramatically with return to dry land. Spencerific is 0-for-36 but owns competitive numbers on best.
