5 It Was All Good 117 Zayas 7-7-x Jerkens 20-1

6 Hunter Grey(L) 114 Davis 4-9-7 Goodwin 20-1

Here He Fitz makes peak start of form cycle and first start with maiden claiming tag; rail draw seals the deal. All Over Me also gets class relief and is lightly raced with ample room for development. Officer Mahaffy owns speed and gets Lasix; very interesting.

6 Lucci the Lion(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 7-1-5 DiPrima 20-1

7 Junior Officer(L) 113 McCarthy 3-4-4 Sciacca 15-1

Junior Officer is rested and should pack amplified late kick in field where pace meltdown could ensue. The Big Deluxe owns speed and fast figs on 'A' game; could easily take this. Hay Shares makes first start since claimed by DAS/Jacobson; more than good enough on best.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $60,000.

1 Academyperformance(L1) 120 Castro x-x-x Belsoeur 12-1

2 Latin Tudor(L) 120 Ortiz 3-2-3 Pletcher 9-5

3 Spunderful(L1) 120 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Goldberg 3-1

4 Las Olas Azur(L) 120 Franco 5-5-x Serpe 8-1

5 Candy Portena(L) 120 Arroyo 9-2-6 Ortiz 10-1

6 Julie Napp(L) 115 Rice 4-7-4 Schettino 5-2

Latin Tudor is riding a forward line on pace and final figures; set for career best. Julie Napp was just a length behind top selection last time and could easily close the gap in second start since three-month layoff. Candy Portena regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; rebound potential.

1 Mile. Claiming $12,500. 4&up. Purse: $23,000.

1 Light of Mercy(L) 118 Beato 8-11-7 Gullo 20-1

2 Closingtothewire(L) 118 Montanez 7-6-7 Vazquez 30-1

3 Prime Time City(L) 121 Maragh 1-2-2 Cannizzo 4-1

4 Candy Raider(L) 113 Esquivel 3-6-9 Toscano, Jr 6-1

5 Ego Friendly(L) 118 Garcia 12-2-3 Quick 3-1

6 Snifter(L) 121 Velasquez 1-4-6 Englehart 5-2

7 Life's a Roar(L) 108 Davis 4-3-3 Parker 7-2

Life's a Roar drops two price levels, owns competitive numbers and should offer best price potential in evenly-matched field. Snifter tallied solid final fraction when breaking maiden last time; big-time player. Prime Time City was a front-running maiden winner in last and could play out as the main speed once again.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $28,000.

1 Brilliant Einstein(L) 118 Studart 7-6-8 Persaud 30-1

2 Mach Seven(L) 114 Davis 4-6-3 Parker 4-1

3 Cuckoo House(L) 113 McCarthy 4-4-4 Chatterpaul 10-1

5 Gamble(L) 124 Perez 5-9-10 Donato 20-1

6 Political Farce(L) 124 Castro 4-2-2 Contessa 8-5

7 Alysaro(L) 124 Franco 7-7-4 Falcone, Jr 5-2

Alysaro is speedy, rested and gets positive class drop. Unbridled Bear is fresh and packs solid late kick on best; white-hot Rice/Rice tandem can't be ignored. Political Farce owns fast figs but is a consistent failure at short odds; must take the good with the bad.

6 Furlongs. Starters Allowance. 4&up. Purse: $50,000.

1 Non Stop(L) 118 Maragh 5-3-1 Cannizzo 5-2

6 Street Thug(L) 123 Velasquez 1-1-1 Jacobson 5-1

7 Schoolyard Dreams(L) 118 Ortiz 1-4-3 Kenneally 7-2

8 In the Beat(L) 108 Davis 3-6-5 DeMola 20-1

Shankopotamus was done in by rough start and hot fractions last time; softer flow today. Schoolyard Dreams notched rapid final fraction when a clear-cut winner in last; could easily pair up victories. Non Stop gets class relief and owns swift figures on best efforts; right in the thick of this.

7

1 1/16 Mile. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $57,000.

1 Three for Me(L) 118 Arroyo 2-5-1 Miranda 20-1

3 Effinex 122 Montanez 1-5-x Smith 30-1

6 Prophet's Cat(L) 113 Rice 1-7-11 Sciacca 20-1

7 Testosterstone(L) 115 Esquivel 4-6-1 Kelly 12-1

8 Storm(L) 118 DeCarlo 3-3-1 Pletcher 8-1

9 Frost Jordan(L) 118 Maragh 3-1-2 Hushion 4-1

Tapitation tallied sizzling late pace figure when a dominant maiden winner in last; more to come. First Ranger was a determined winner at this level in last; worth long look at long price. Three for Me wheels back in a hurry for new barn after clear-cut placing in last; dangerous.

6 Furlongs. Allowance. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $62,000.

1 Jonata(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 3-5-12 Hushion 8-5

2 Highestmaintenance(L) 118 Maragh 2-4-2 Pletcher 5-2

3 Eta Carinae(L) 118 Franco 4-1-x Domino 20-1

1a Bridgehampton(L) 118 Ortiz 2-1-5 Hushion 8-5

4 Keep Bustin(L) 118 Arroyo 5-6-1 Levine 8-1

5 Cubicle Queen(L) 111 Mejias 6-7-6 Baker 20-1

6 Kara's Match Point(L) 113 Rice 3-3-4 Rice 12-1

7 Talent N Passion(L) 113 Esquivel 1-9-3 Barrera, III 5-1

8 Superior Sarah(L) 118 Velasquez 3-2-2 Albertrani 7-2

Keep Bustin is rested and owns fast late pace numbers on 'A' game; 3-for-4 record on inner track is the clincher. Hushion entry: Jonata and Bridgehampton are both training sharply for first start since layoffs; dangerous. Highestmaintenance was a front-running second in last; logical, short-priced player.

1 1/16 Mile. Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $55,000.

1 Piccolo Flats(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 6-x-x Brown 3-1

2 Camie's Dancer(L) 114 Davis 9-7-8 Davis 50-1

3 Nile Empress(L) 118 Ortiz 5-x-x Brown 6-1

4 Legally Bay(L) 119 Esquivel 4-4-3 Coffey 12-1

5 Prairie Stone(L) 118 Luzzi 3-3-x Brown 4-1

6 Bi Light of Day(L) 119 Rice 3-2-3 Hertler 7-2

7 Echluath(L) 117 Zayas 2-5-8 Levine 5-1

8 Gingee(L) 124 Garcia 6-3-2 DiSanto 15-1

9 You Jane(L) 124 Arroyo 8-6-6 Ubillo 30-1

10 La Dama de Hierro(L) 113 McCarthy 3-7-4 Shevy 20-1

11 Rumble Doll(L) 118 Maragh 3-5-x Falcone, Jr 20-1

La Dama de Hierro was just two lengths behind a next-out winner when a much-improved third in last; continues forward development. Echluath owns sprinter's speed and could prove very tough on a soft lead. Bi Light of Day was a late-running third in last and should have more to give in second start since three-month absence. Prairie Stone finished third in both starts; logical. You Jane could be more effective with today's added ground; worth long look at long price.
