Best Bet: GO UNBRIDLED (10); Best Value: JOHANNESBURG SMILE (9)

1

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $16,000.

Post - 12:30 p.m.1 Successful Affair(L) 9-7-2 Serpa Brown 118 4-1

2 Hedge Fund(L) 3-3-2 Davis Toscano 118 9-2

3 Hard Iron(L) 3-8-5 Santiago Dunham 123 6-1

4 J J's Prophet(L) 4-9-5 Dominguez Rice 123 7-2

5 Ungi Blanc(L) 7-6-12 Bermudez Mena, II 123 50-1

6 Commissioner Chris(L) 4-6-5 Musarro Persaud 116 12-1

7 Truth Rules(L) 4-6-5 Lopez Zito 123 9-5

8 Packer(L) 6-6-9 Cobb Jeannont 113 30-1

Hedge Fund exits sprint last and should secure favorable position at longer trip. Truth Rules drops to lifetime low and owns fast back figures; anything left? J J's Prophet could prove tough to catch on soft lead.

2

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $40,000.

1 Suddenly I See(L) 8-x-x Davis Smith 117 30-1

2 Vivant(L) 4-8-x Lopez Levine 122 8-1

3 Giuseppina x-x-x Gracia Streicher 112 15-1

4 Quake Lake(L) 2-x-x Dominguez Motion 122 6-5

5 Windy Vale(L) 5-3-3 Jara Benzel 122 7-2

6 Spell Check(L) 2-2-2 Migliore Violette 122 2-1

Spell Check is fresh and training consistently and should be primed for big effort. Quake Lake displayed good speed in debut at Lrl and should be aided by cutback to 6 furlongs. Windy Vale has hit the board in all three starts; logical player.

3

1 1/16 Miles. 4&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $45,000.

2 Father Tim(L) 6-1-1 Migliore McLaughlin 118 10-1

3 Manteca(L) 2-2-4 Hill Pletcher 118 5-1

4 Sawtooth Mountain(L) 1-1-2 Serpa DeRosa 118 15-1

1 Dubinsky(L) 1-2-4 Dominguez Dutrow 120 2-5

1a Well Positioned(L) 2-1-2 Dominguez Dutrow 118 2-5

5 Icabad Crane(L) 2-3-6 Saez Motion 118 4-1

Dutrow entry: Well Positioned has worked strongly since a pole clear for second behind runaway winner in last and mate Dubinsky exits clear-cut victory; just one goes with Dominguez listed on both. Icabad Crane could impact if fractions get fast and furious. Father Tim owns speed and starts from fence; dangerous.

4

6 Furlongs. 3&up. NY Bred. THE HOLLIE HUGHES. Purse: $65,000.

1 Smokin Hero(L) 2-1-6 Lopez Englehart 117 4-1

2 Mr. Windjammer(L) 2-4-5 Saez Ritvo 121 8-1

3 Rereadthefootnotes(L) 1-2-1 Dominguez Hushion 117 9-5

4 Citifest(L) 6-5-4 Samyn Hertler 117 15-1

5 See More Spirit(L) 7-7-4 Hill Hertler 117 15-1

6 Mor Chances(L) 1-3-3 Migliore Dutrow 121 7-5

Smokin Hero has aggressive rider at the helm and could be quick enough to hold the fence; call based on price potential. Rereadthefootnotes was ultra-sharp in last; logical, short-priced threat. Mor Chances is training impressively for first start since June; big-time player.

5

5 1/2 Furlongs. 3yo. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $38,000.

2 Nicoletti(L) 6-5-5 Davis Tasso 115 50-1

1 Steal the Shot(L1) x-x-x Dominguez Schosberg 120 6-1

3 Justtakemypicture(L) 2-5-2 Lezcano Volk 115 3-1

1a Perfect Tower(L1) x-x-x Espinoza Baker 120 6-1

4 Showme Zealous(L1) x-x-x Jara Kazamias 120 15-1

5 Scale(L) 3-x-x Lopez Rice 120 7-2

6 Raffinator(L) 4-x-x Serpa Ryerson 115 12-1

7 Major Star(L) 4-3-6 Hill Hushion 120 4-1

8 Power Punch(L1) x-x-x Saez Brown 120 8-1

9 Conflicted(L) 3-2-x Chavez Contessa 120 6-1

Justtakemypicture showed improved speed with addition of blinkers last time and should offer best price potential of the contenders. Scale is the one that must be caught; very playable. Major Star was victimized by poor start when favored in last; could easily take this.

6

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Purse: $41,000.

1 Quitters Never Win(L) 1-5-x Lopez Lotruglio 120 20-1

2 Freud's Notebook(L) 1-2-10 Jara Brown 120 5-2

3 Azucaa Anne(L) 1-2-3 Rodriguez LeCesse 120 15-1

4 Starjetta(L) 2-1-4 Espinoza Schettino 120 9-2

5 Sheria(L) 1-3-x Dominguez Dutrow 120 2-1

6 Frontal Stride(L) 1-7-3 Hill Bush 120 20-1

7 Every Little Thing(L) 2-1-8 Migliore Pletcher 120 4-1

8 Doris D.(L) 3-1-4 Alvarado Conway 120 12-1

Freud's Notebook is riding an improving line on the numbers and fired swift 5-furlong drill last week. Sheria has trained strongly since fast-figured maiden score; dangerous. Starjetta logged game second at this level in last; must be considered.

7

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

1 Gracious Victory(L) 2-4-3 Serpa Dutrow 113 9-5

2 Apple(L) 6-6-7 Chavez Contessa 118 8-1

1a Hot and Bothered(L) 9-9-1 Dominguez Dutrow 118 9-5

3 Sumwhrovrtherainbw(L) 2-4-8 Lopez Badgett 118 6-1

4 Windy Corner(L) 2-1-4 Bermudez Mena, II 118 6-1

5 Hooked On Money(L) 5-8-2 Lopez Rice 118 5-1

6 Kiara(L) 5-7-9 Lopez Ortiz 111 30-1

7 Super Child(L) 3-4-1 Saez Jacobson 118 6-1

8 Ed's Princess(L) 6-6-6 Bocachica Lotruglio 118 20-1

9 Navedano(L) 4-2-5 Santiago Martin 118 10-1

Apple gets favorable cutback and makes peak start of form cycle. Dutrow entry: Gracious Victory owns fast figures and is training with a purpose for first start since October and mate Hot and Bothered is speedy and owns fast numbers; short price is the knock. Hooked On Money is right in the mix on 'A' efforts.

8

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Starters Allowance. Purse: $42,000.

1 Raffie's Deer(L) 1-2-12 Chavez Asmussen 118 9-2

2 Coach Butts(L) 4-10-4 Saez Bush 118 8-1

3 Success Fee(L) 1-5-5 Migliore Hennig 118 3-1

4 Coach Gravy(L) 7-2-1 Dominguez Maker 118 5-1

5 Four Shore(L) 1-3-8 Hill Sedlacek 118 20-1

6 Emma's Posse(L) 2-7-10 Lopez Galluscio 118 8-1

7 Dorian Will(L) 1-1-3 Jara Pletcher 118 7-2

8 Next Day(L) 5-2-4 Serpa Persaud 113 15-1

9 Stargleam(L) 4-1-1 Musarro Badgett 111 10-1

Success Fee unleashed wide move to win last and logged three tightly grouped works in the interim; rates close call. Dorian Will is riding a two-race winning streak and is very playable if price is generous. Stargleam (tough post) and Raffies Dear (best seat in the house) are two more contenders on their best efforts; ultra-tough heat.

9

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3yo. NY Bred. Allowance. Purse: $41,000.

1 Johannesburg Smile(L) 1-5-4 Serpa Galluscio 115 6-1

2 Smooth Transition(L) 1-5-6 Hill Martin 118 15-1

3 Thousand Excuses(L) 5-1-5 Dominguez Maker 122 7-2

5 Shotgun Bandit(L) 1-9-6 Migliore Hennig 118 30-1

6 Shrimp Dancer(L) 2-3-3 Lopez Donk 118 6-5

7 Crescent's Mon(L) 1-4-9 Jara Brown 120 12-1

8 Fortunate Run(L) 1-4-4 DeSouza Chatterpaul 118 8-1

9 Dixie Nite Out(L) 1-4-2 Chavez Contessa 120 12-1

Johannesburg Smile logged two 5-furlong drills since determined win on New Year's Day and has the added bonus of starting from the fence. Shrimp Dancer owns fast figures, a potent late kick and fired half-mile bullet last week; likely favorite. Fortunate Run was visually impressive winner in last and now makes first start for very capable barn; very playable.

10

5 1/2 Furlongs. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $38,000.

1 Bailzee(L1) x-x-x Lopez Kelly 120 6-1

5 Waylady(L) 10-8-2 Hill D'Alessandro 120 20-1

6 Go Unbridled 4-5-x Chavez Hushion 120 7-2

7 Bobity Boo(L) 3-x-x Saez Bush 120 5-1

9 Royal Waltz(L1) x-x-x Lezcano Ubillo 115 15-1

10 Ommadon's Angel x-x-x Serpa O'Brien 115 20-1

11 Verbetica(L) 8-x-x Migliore Barker 120 15-1

12 Buddys Dream(L1) x-x-x Lopez Martin, Sr. 113 15-1

Go Unbridled is fresh and training consistently and makes first start for Hushion; all systems go. Refined Elegance is rested and owns fast figures; big-time player. Lights Out Lisa has failed as the favorite in last two but could make forward move in third start of form cycle. Bailzee debuts with a bullet-riddled work tab; charting a must.
