1 Mile. Claiming $20,000. 4yo&up. Purse: $23,000. Post - 12:30 p.m.

1 King Bo Bo(L) 7-2-3 Serpa Ortiz 113 5-1

2 Awesome Charlie(L) 1-1-5 Chavez Volk 118 10-1

3 Tsavorite(L) 2-1-1 Lopez Persaud 118 15-1

4 Woodacre(L) 5-4-5 Saez Arroyo 118 9-2

1a Lofty Banner(L) 2-5-2 Serpa Ortiz 113 5-1

6 Blazing Taurus(L) 7-1-1 Jara Kazamias 118 12-1

7 Frazil(L) 1-8-1 Napravnik Rice 118 7-2

8 Vinnies Wild Tale(L) 1-8-1 Bocachica Barrera 118 30-1

9 O'Kid(L) 3-7-1 Dominguez Dutrow 118 2-1

King Bo Bo owns sprinter's speed and starts from the fence and projects as the controlling front-runner with stretch to mile. O'Kid logs very fast figures on 'A' game; likely chalk. Vinnie's Wild Tale fired 5-furlong bullet for inner track debut; worth long look at long price.

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

2 Alltiffedoff(L) 5-x-x Cohen Reynolds 120 6-1

1 Scale(L1) x-x-x Napravnik Rice 120 9-5

3 Major Star(L) 3-6-x Hill Hushion 120 2-1

4 Cayo Hueso(L) 2-3-6 Espinoza Feron 120 8-1

6 Hittin the Note(L1) x-x-x Lopez Schosberg 120 12-1

7 Conflicted(L1) x-x-x Saez Contessa 120 8-1

1a Save Time for Me(L) 2-7-2 Dominguez Bush 120 9-5

8 Cocobolo x-x-x Alvarado Ferraro 120 15-1

Major Star improved dramatically in second start and should give one more big effort before the bounce. Save Time For Me owns fast pace and final figures, but has lost three straight times as the favorite. Scale debuts for Linda Rice with sneaky-good work slate; charting a must.

1 Mile & 1/16. Evening Attire Stakes. 3yo&up. Purse: $65,000

1 Understatement(L) 2-5-2 Cohen Pletcher 116 3-5

1a Well Positioned(L) 1-2-6 Dominguez Dutrow 116 3-5

2 Ah Day(L) 3-1-5 Russell Leatherbury 120 4-1

3 More Than a Reason(L) 3-3-3 Hill Persaud 116 8-1

4 Storm Play(L) 4-4-6 Napravnik Pletcher 116 7-2

5 Bunker Hill(L) 4-3-1 Lopez Ryan 120 15-1

Well Positioned logged top-figure victory in first start on inner track; more to come. Ah Day ships in for King Leatherbury and is 1-for-1 on winterized oval; must respect. Storm Play tallied swift numbers in fall of '08; recaptures that magic today?

5 & 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 4yo&up. NY Bred. Purse: $38,000

1 Freudian Storm(L) 8-6-4 Dominguez Contessa 122 4-1

2 Ruling Decision(L) 5-6-3 Samyn Sedlacek 122 8-1

3 Dixielore(L1) x-x-x Saez Martin, Sr. 122 15-1

4 Virtues Under Fire(L) 7-3-x Serpa Hills 117 5-1

5 Strings and Arrows(L) 3-5-7 Napravnik Gyarmati 122 8-1

6 Believe in Love(L) 3-2-2 Cohen Kravets 122 7-5

7 Overtime Danny Boy(L1) x-x-x Bocachica Smalios 122 30-1

8 Call the General(L) 5-4-10 Chavez Parboo 122 20-1

9 One Turn Eddie(L) 6-x-x Fragoso Morrison 122 8-1

Strings And Arrows compiled an eye-catching work tab for first start since June; primed and ready at fat price. Believe In Love exits fast-figured third in last; could easily take this. Virtues Under Fire is speedy and adds blinkers; wire-to-wire potential.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $10,000. 4yo&up. Purse: $15,000

1 Mr. Bourbon Street(L) 8-10-2 Cohen Jacobson 123 8-1

2 S. Cavalry(L) 7-2-4 Lezcano DiPrima 118 12-1

3 Platinum Couple(L) 4-2-8 Studart Chatterpaul 123 5-1

4 Air Lord(L) 1-1-2 Jara Brown 123 8-5

5 Acclimate(L) 4-2-3 Bocachica Arroyo 123 12-1

6 Laudable(L) 7-8-4 Dominguez Parisella 123 12-1

7 Wollaston Bay(L) 8-3-5 Lopez Sciacca 123 15-1

8 Remorse(L) 8-11-3 Alvarado D'Alessandro 123 30-1

9 Hedge Fund(L) 2-5-4 Hill Sedlacek 123 10-1

10 Banking Holiday(L) 10-4-2 Bisono Ramos 123 6-1

11 Matthew T C(L) 4-2-7 Serpa Hills 118 20-1

Platinum Couple drops and cuts back to sprint and should pack intensified late wallop; rates close call. U.S. Cavalry could play out as the dominant speed with aggressive ride; worth serious look. Air Lord has been sidelined since May and takes a troubling price plunge in first start since claimed; fire sale?

5 & 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $25,000. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $19,000

2 Central Red Raider(L1) x-x-x Bocachica Gyarmati 120 20-1

3 My Friend Sandy(L) 6-4-6 Lopez Schwartz 120 5-1

1 Money's Sweet(L1) x-x-x Napravnik Rice 115 9-5

1a City Whisper(L1) x-x-x Dominguez Rice 120 9-5

4 Evil Genius(L) 3-8-7 Cohen Brown 120 5-2

5 Hot Reward(L) 6-x-x Serpa Bond 115 6-1

6 I'm Hooked Up(L) 10-4-6 Davis Callejas 115 10-1

7 Cathy's Rascal(L) 9-8-7 Musarro Hertler 113 15-1

8 Holy Patron(L1) x-x-x Chavez Quick 120 12-1

Hot Reward never threatened in sloppy track debut, but has trained sharply in the interim and meets weak field. Evil Genius, the potential main speed, came up a little short in last, but should be much tighter in second start since three-month layoff; big-time danger. Rice entry: Money's Sweet and City Whisper are a pair of newcomers that demand scrutiny if money shows.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $20,000-$18,000. Fillies and Mares. 4yo&up. Purse: $24,000

2 French Song(L) 4-5-1 Saez Friedman 120 7-2

3 Star Over Malibu(L) 7-6-9 Serpa Contessa 115 12-1

4 Sneaky Girl(L) 4-7-6 Lopez Jacobson 120 5-1

5 O'Sotopretty(L) 1-1-2 DeSouza Chatterpaul 118 4-1

6 Top Lass(L) 6-5-5 Napravnik Ferraro 120 20-1

1 Cherokee Gem(L) 4-5-5 Dominguez Dutrow 120 5-2

7 Baroness(L) 5-2-1 Bocachica Barrera 118 20-1

8 Liza Lu(L) 3-7-3 Cohen Autrey 120 6-1

9 Ambling Rose(L) 5-2-3 Jara Kazamias 118 12-1

1a One Tough Belle(L) 6-4-4 Dominguez Dutrow 120 5-2

O'Sotopretty logged clear-cut victory in first start on inner track and now makes first start for profitable first-off-the-claim barn; more to come. Star Over Malibu gets class relief and makes peak start of form cycle; very dangerous. French Song is right in the thick of this on best efforts; don't ignore.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 4yo&up. Purse: $44,000

2 Vicious Rapids(L) 4-4-2 Alvarado Ferraro 118 15-1

3 Silent Valor(L) 4-8-5 Dominguez Pletcher 118 2-1

1 Executive Search(L) 2-4-1 Serpa Jacobson 118 7-2

1a Have You Ever(L) 1-3-1 Saez Jacobson 123 7-2

4 Aquino(L) 6-5-8 Jara McLaughlin 118 10-1

5 Elusive Gift(L) 2-1-1 Lopez Dutrow 118 5-2

6 Toulouse Lautrec(L) 5-1-1 Cohen Levine 118 4-1

7 Unbridled Danger(L) 6-4-7 Bisono Young 118 20-1

Executive Search exits tough-trip placing at mile in last and should possess amplified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs. Have You Ever earned fast pace and final figures when a runaway winner in last; very dangerous. Elusive Gift could play out as the speed of the speed with C C Lopez aloft in first start for Tony Dutrow; serious player.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $7,500. 4yo&up. Purse: $15,000

2 Grapple(L) 2-1-3 Napravnik Levine 118 7-2

3 Sonny's the One(L) 6-1-1 Serpa Ortiz 118 9-2

4 Chief Operator(L) 8-3-4 Hill Signore 118 12-1

5 Gold Shamrock(L) 8-1-1 Musarro Imperio 111 15-1

6 Castle Harbour(L) 5-1-1 Rodriguez Grusmark 120 15-1

7 Morine's Victory(L) 3-3-7 Studart Terracciano 118 8-1

8 Natural Speed(L) 10-7-6 Bocachica Arroyo 118 20-1

9 Distant Point(L) 7-7-1 Saez Contessa 120 12-1

10 Hurricane Heat(L) 5-8-5 Chavez Barrera 118 20-1

11 Cudjo(L) 5-2-4 Jara Kazamias 118 20-1

1 Man in Grey(L) 2-6-3 Cohen Autrey 118 5-2

1a Wheaton Home(L) 1-5-1 Cohen Autrey 120 5-2

12 Major Dome(L) 2-6-5 Rodriguez LeCesse 118 20-1

Chief Operator has been victimized by less than perfect trips in last few and rates call based on price potential in cheap nightcap. Autrey entry: Man In Grey was game second in last and owns fast back figures and mate Wheaton Home was a clear-cut winner at this level in last; just one goes with Cohen listed on both. Morine's Victory would be aided by pace meltdown; not the worst place to land. Distant Point was a determined winner the last time he raced for this price; don't ignore.
