7 Four Star Bo(L) 8-6-2 Lopez Henriques 111 8-1

8 New Spirit(L) 4-4-7 Luzzi Benzel 118 5-1

King Bo Bo takes two-level class drop and owns fast figures; best if not damaged goods. Karakorum On Black could prove tough on a soft lead; dangerous. Foolish Vow is fresh and training consistently; don't dismiss.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $39,000.

1 Big Gavel(L) 7-10-3 Bravo Contessa 123 5-2

2 Strings and Arrows(L) 4-7-3 Luzzi Gyarmati 123 12-1

5 Leatherhead(L) 2-3-6 Jara Ubillo 116 9-2

6 Spicy Steve(L) 3-2-6 Fragoso Donk 116 8-5

Abilio owns sprinter's speed and fired swift 5-furlong drill for first start since September. Spicy Steve has improved since adding blinkers two starts back and now makes peak outing for form cycle. Leatherhead looms the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Eli's Comin's speed must be respected.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 3yo. Purse: $40,000.

1 Trust of Honor(L) 4-x-x Luzzi Benzel 120 5-1

2 Calvello(L) 2-2-3 Hill Hertler 120 6-1

3 Ryan's Gift(L) 2-6-3 Fragoso Ferraro 120 2-1

4 King's Pardon(L1) x-x-x Cohen Zito 120 10-1

5 Too Big to Fail(L1) x-x-x Napravnik Violette 120 5-2

6 Lloydobler(L) 5-2-x Lopez Sciacca 120 9-2

Trust of Honor is training with a purpose for first start since debuting versus tougher at Saratoga; rates call based on price potential. Calvello is 0-for-12 but owns fast figures; big-time player. Ryan's Gift is the one that will be calling the shots on the lead; dangerous.

4

6 Furlongs. Allowance. 4&up. Purse: $42,000

1 Allrightsreserved(L) 1-5-2 Cohen Pletcher 123 8-5

3 Great Emperor(L) 5-1-5 Luzzi Imperio 118 20-1

4 Sheraguska(L) 5-1-2 Fragoso Ferraro 118 6-1

1a Came East(L) 4-9-1 Bravo Pletcher 118 8-5

5 Keep Thinking(L) 7-3-1 Migliore McLaughlin 118 7-2

2 Ricoriatoa(L) 4-2-4 Lopez Galluscio 118 2-1

6 No Questions(L) 1-7-7 Jara Iselin 118 10-1

2b Emma's Posse(L) 3-1-2 Lopez Galluscio 123 2-1

Emma's Posse raced against the grain of the bias last time and should pack amplified punch with cutback to sprint. No Questions decisively defeated a next-out victor when a determined winner in last and logged crisp half-mile drill last week; very playable. Ricoriatoa owns speed and fast figures; could easily take this.

5

6 Furlongs. Starters Allowance. 4&up. Purse: $20,000.

1 Mr. Bourbon Street(L) 1-1-6 Migliore DiPrima 123 4-1

2 Wadi Suki(L) 3-5-2 Serpa Persaud 113 6-1

3 Cielo Song(L) 4-7-10 Jara Parker 118 30-1

4 Zip to the City(L) 5-1-2 Santiago Arroyo 118 12-1

5 Volos(L) 2-1-7 Cohen Ronen 120 7-2

6 Platinum Couple(L) 7-5-6 Studart Chatterpaul 120 15-1

7 Norjac(L) 3-2-1 Napravnik Feliciano 118 8-5

8 Hurricane Heat(L) 4-3-5 Davis Barrera 118 8-1

Mr. Bourbon Street is riding a two-race winning streak and now makes first start since claimed by capable connections (Greg DiPrima). Norjac ships in from Maryland and owns numbers that are a solid fit with the locals at this level. Volos makes first start for new barn and is more than good enough on 'A' game.

6

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $43,000.

1 Johannesburg Smile(L) 1-1-5 Lopez Galluscio 114 7-2

2 South Fourth St.(L) 5-7-8 Lezcano Toscano 116 12-1

3 Afrikaner(L) 1-1-2 Serpa Barrera 116 8-1

4 Stopbluffing(L) 3-5-3 Luzzi Brown 121 9-2

5 Princeofproximity(L) 5-4-5 Davis Coffey 121 30-1

6 Billy Bear(L) 3-6-1 Pino Dutrow 121 2-1

7 Most Happy Fella(L) 2-1-6 Napravnik Badgett 116 5-2

Afrikaner, winner of two straight, packs potent late kick in sprints and should handle longer trip. Billy Bear is fresh, owns fast figures and hails from Chip Dutrow barn; very playable. Johannesburg Smile is fleet-footed and starts from the fence; must consider.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $15,000. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $15,000.

2 Brushed Off(L) 7-8-11 Serpa Kelly 117 12-1

1 Mind Boggling(L) 3-5-3 Davis Ferraro 122 5-1

3 Emblemosophy(L) 6-x-x Lezcano Saccardo 117 20-1

4 Rubinstein(L) 4-2-8 Cohen Bush 122 3-5

5 Tympanic(L) 12-3-6 Musarro DeMola 115 15-1

6 Pink Freud(L) 7-5-12 Hill Gyarmati 122 20-1

7 Smarteralex(L) 6-3-6 Samyn Cedano 122 15-1

1a S.Z. Madison(L) 8-4-3 Santiago Ferraro 122 5-1

8 Hidden Prince(L) 2-4-2 Bocachica Reiff 122 6-1

S. Z. Madison gets class relief after bouncing when racing wide in last; takes this with rebound effort. Rubinstein returns from freshener after failing when 35 cents on the dollar in last; very dangerous on best. Hidden Prince owns speed but lacks heart; must take the good with the bad.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $7,500. 4&up. Purse: $12,000.

1 Winitback(L) 1-2-3 Bocachica Grusmark 123 12-1

2 Brendan's Warrior(L) 7-5-8 Jara McGillycuddy 120 15-1

3 Love of Life(L) 3-3-7 Serpa Lotruglio 115 12-1

4 Crazy Charlie(L) 3-7-4 Napravnik Aquilino 120 5-1

5 Bowman's Music(L) 7-2-2 Migliore House 120 8-1

6 Bold Vindication(L) 2-6-7 Cohen Autrey 120 3-1

7 Fortyninegeorgest.(L) 9-1-2 Luzzi Dutrow 120 4-1

8 Carter's Store(L) 9-6-4 Chavez Contessa 120 10-1

9 We Get It(L) 4-5-1 Bermudez Gullo 120 6-1

10 Lincoln Road(L) 7-11-5 Gracia Hull 110 30-1

Bold Vindication tallied swift late pace figure when a clear-cut second in most recent; more to come. Fortyninegeorgest drops two price levels after running last at every call in most recent; your move. Brendan's Warrior flashed brief speed in route last and should be aided by turn back to sprint; price will be tempting.

6 Furlongs. The CICADA. Grade III. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $100,000.

1 Romantic Hideaway(L) 4-1-1 Pino Sacco 120 8-1

2 Donna Getyourgun(L) 1-4-1 Napravnik Wilkes 118 6-1

3 Female Drama(L) 10-1-1 Cohen Pletcher 118 9-2

4 Liam's Dream(L) 3-1-1 Lopez Dutrow 118 4-1

5 Fuzzy Britches(L) 1-2-1 Hill Dutrow 120 12-1

6 Seaside Fortune(L) 1-1-2 Jara Preciado 118 15-1

7 Indian Burn(L) 4-1-1 Migliore Hertler 118 20-1

8 Bickersons(L) 4-1-5 Bravo Breen 122 7-5

Bickersons regressed in last at GP after fast-figured win in prior; bounces back in contentious Cicada. Donna Getyourgun exits breakthrough score at GP and has trained strongly in the interim; very playable. Fuzzy Britches was game winner of Dearly Precious in last and has yet to run a poor effort in seven starts. Seaside Fortune owns speed and sharp form; don't ignore.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Maiden Claiming $15,000. NY Bred. Purse: $15,000.

2 Kill the Joker(L) 12-8-2 Bermudez Gullo 120 6-1

3 Timber Cat(L) 6-3-7 Napravnik Bush 120 7-2

4 T.G. Hero(L1) x-x-x Panas Nunn 120 20-1

5 Chieftains Warrior(L) 10-7-x Lopez DiSanto 113 20-1

6 Policy Wonk x-x-x Khan Garofalo 113 15-1

7 Belongs to Sheila(L) 5-10-x Musarro Hernandez 113 15-1

1 Regal Court(L1) x-x-x Lopez Rice 120 2-1

8 You Jump I Jump(L1) x-x-x Richards Galluscio 120 5-1

9 Lindsey's Buck(L1) x-x-x Alvarado Conway 120 12-1

10 Mount Karakorum(L) 5-6-4 Studart Odintz 120 12-1

1a Bold Direction(L) 3-x-x Lopez Rice 120 2-1

Kill The Joker lost all chance in last but takes helpful class drop today and looms the main speed on the fence. Timber Cat is rested and could display improved early foot; very interesting. Rice entry: Regal Court is working sharply for first start and Bold Direction was third behind a good-looking newcomer in debut; just one goes with Lopez listed on both. Lindsey's Buck logged tightly grouped work tab for debut; charting a must.
