15 D' Oratory(L) 121 Dominguez 2-2-3 Bond 7-5

16 Go Unbridled 121 Chavez 4-2-5 Jerkens 12-1

D' Oratory consistently logs field's fastest figures; short price in opener that's likely to be decimated by scratches. Wind In My Sails closed strongly in sprint last and could be aided by today's longer trip. Illgiveuwattever tallied career-best number on inner surface last winter; don't ignore.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt) Maiden Claiming $20,000-$18,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $20,000.

1 A Tripp Royale(L) 114 Pedroza 12-8-x Contessa 12-1

6 Mama Dukes(L) 119 Santiago 5-9-6 Tannuzzo 12-1

7 Persky's Love(L) 113 Amaro 7-6-7 Ortiz 30-1

Deflate The Bubble is training with a purpose for first start since March and hails from profitable layoff barn. Shalaka was game second in key race last time at FL; big-time threat. Mama Dukes wheels back in a hurry after speed and fade this past Friday; dangerous.

1 Mile. (Inner Dirt). Claiming $7,500. 3&up. Purse: $18,000.

2 Bindle Stick(L) 121 Santiago 7-1-6 Dunham 5-1

6 Nolite Timere(L) 121 Davis 5-5-3 Ferraro 10-1

7 Dontquityourdayjob(L) 121 Blake-Baeza 7-11-6 Martin, Sr. 20-1

8 First of Ten(L) 121 Cohen 8-1-8 Jacobson 5-1

Pegasus Ena tallied improved final fraction in last and will benefit from today's additional furlong. Redwood Fever has won three of last four at FL and is nice fit with locals at this level. Dontquityourdayjob logged both career wins on inner track; price will be tempting.

9 Chasin the Cash 120 Torres x-x-x Lotruglio 30-1

10 Bacchi(L1) 120 Castro x-x-x Hernandez, Jr 12-1

Calico Mountain fired half-mile bullet since folding as the favorite in last; better price today. Memory Motel, another that lost as the chalk in last, will be aided by cutback to 6 furlongs. Myersrocks also couldn't get the job done as the public choice in most recent, but owns fast figures on best efforts.

1 1/16 Mile. (Turf). Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Purse: $24,000.

Main Track Only

11 Kid Tornado(L) 120 Garcia 4-3-2 Violette, Jr 2-1

12 Quickstone(L) 119 Chavez 1-4-3 Ice 7-2

Quickstone was front-running winner last time and razor-sharp current form should prove the key. Kid Tornado owns sprinter's speed and will prove a tough customer on a soft lead. Gamblin Fever could be prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt). Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $20,000.

2 La Festa E Domani(L) 121 Valdivia, Jr 10-4-4 Sciacca 12-1

9 Centripital(L) 121 Davis 6-7-4 Corrao 15-1

10 Last Mistake(L) 115 Pedroza 9-4-7 Robinson 12-1

Odintz entry: Mount Karakorum is 0-for-24 but makes fast return and owns swift numbers and mate Karakorum Budman closes strongly on best. Rizzi's Comet is riding an improving line on the numbers; very playable. Settop is lightly raced and makes prime start of form cycle; worth long look at long price.

13 Arthur's Tale(L) 120 Garcia 4-3-5 Albertrani 5-2

14 Acadian Blues(L) 120 Solis 3-11-x Gyarmati 3-1

Acadian Blues compiled three tightly grouped workouts since earning very fast pace and final figures when third in budding key race last time; more to give. Arthur's Tale is fresh and training strongly; very dangerous. Dance City debuts for Pletcher; stay tuned to the tote.

1 Mile. (Inner Dirt). Allowance. 3&up. NY Bred. $43,000.

1 Whateverittakes(L) 122 Velasquez 3-1-5 Schosberg 9-5

2 Gold Close to Home(L) 121 Rivera 1-3-3 Morrison 10-1

3 Backcountry Boy(L) 120 Valdivia, Jr 7-6-5 Hernandez 20-1

8 Raffinator(L) 122 Garcia 1-4-6 Ryerson 8-1

9 Afleet Magic(L) 121 Luzzi 6-1-7 Quartarolo 20-1

Gold Close To Home overcame tough trip to win last at Pha and should offer best price potential of the contenders. Whateverittakes looms the main speed on the fence on tight-turned track; could easily take this. Smooth Transition holds razor-sharp current condition and bested second selection by more than a length last time; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Dirt). Claiming $7,500. 3&up. Purse: $16,000.

1 Zachary Cherryboy(L) 121 Studart 1-7-4 Persaud 10-1

10 True That(L) 113 Rodriguez 10-1-3 Serpe 15-1

11 Parkinson Field(L) 119 Espinoza 11-9-6 Lostritto 50-1

Brunelli tallied strong late pace figure when a clear-cut maiden winner in last; more to give. Zen Village didn't deliver best on turf last out, but logged fast-figured win on dirt in prior; rebound potential. Zone Breaker earned fast internal and final figures when a game second in last; very dangerous. Active Trader owns field's fastest final numbers, but takes suspicious price plunge; must take the good with the bad.
