7 I'm Hooked Up(L) 1-4-10 Serpa Callejas 113 10-1

8 C'Est Qui Ton Pere(L) 4-1-3 Cohen Galluscio 118 5-2

C'est Qui Ton Pere drops after racing against the bias in last; rates close call. Fuzzy's Story fired eye-catching 5-furlong bullet since game placing in last; dangerous. I'm Hooked Up earned fast late pace figure when breaking maiden in most recent; price will be tempting.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $35,000. Purse: $20,000.

1 Grace and Courage(L1) x-x-x Napravnik Bush 120 6-1

2 Verbetica(L) 8-x-x Serpa Barker 115 10-1

3 Fair Lady Olivia(L) 2-4-x Lopez Barbara 120 3-1

7 Smokey Eyes(L) 2-5-x Hill Martin 120 5-2

8 Buddy System 5-x-x Morales Coffey 120 12-1

Fair Lady Olivia came up short in first start since six-month layoff last time; tighter today. Smokey Eyes is another that weakened late and probably needed last. Wine Bar shows a work tab that culminated with crisp half-mile drill; stay tuned to the money.

1 Mile. 4&up. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $41,000.

1 Show the Way(L) 2-4-2 Cohen Shuman 122 8-1

2 Greatsilversaint(L) 2-3-3 Napravnik Terranova, II 122 3-1

3 Key Secret(L1) x-x-x Dominguez Albertrani 122 4-1

4 Big Gavel(L) 10-3-8 Hill Contessa 122 10-1

5 Ex Pat(L) 5-2-3 Migliore Violette 122 4-1

6 R J Hope(L) 3-4-6 Jara Iselin 122 12-1

7 Friendly Wager(L) 2-2-x Lopez Martin, Sr. 122 5-2

Greatsilversaint logged swift pace and final numbers when second to repeat winner in last; another forward move predicted. Friendly Wager was dq'd after fast-figured maiden score two weeks ago; bounces today? Ex Pat regressed as the favorite in last but is right in the thick of this with rebound effort.

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

3 Karakorum Jete(L) 4-4-6 Napravnik Odintz 119 5-2

4 Centrina(L) 6-5-5 Lopez Martin 112 4-1

1 One White Sock(L) 9-x-x Lopez Rice 119 7-2

1a Holy Blitzer(L1) x-x-x Dominguez Rice 119 7-2

2 Tropical Jetset(L1) x-x-x Serpa Schettino 114 6-1

2b Simple Cat(L1) x-x-x Musarro Schettino 112 6-1

5 Ommadon's Thunder 7-x-x Simpson O'Brien 112 12-1

6 Lionish x-x-x Espinoza Morrison 119 15-1

7 Lots of Stones(L1) x-x-x Luzzi Levine 119 9-2

8 Beautiful Pear 8-11-13 Lezcano Campo 114 30-1

9 Abigail Rose(L) 10-7-8 Cobb Persaud 112 50-1

Lionish hails from profitable first-out barn and meets less than stellar group. Centrina drops to lifetime low after wide trip in last; must consider. Rice entry: One White Sock should improve with race under belt and mate Holy Blitzer is training consistently for debut; likely short price is the knock.

5

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Starters Handicap. Purse: $28,000.

1 Stealth Missile(L) 3-1-3 Dominguez Levine 123 5-2

2 Stargleam(L) 4-1-1 Serpa Badgett 119 5-1

3 French Transition(L) 2-1-7 Lopez Martin, Sr. 114 6-1

4 Tactical Assault(L) 6-1-4 Lezcano Volk 114 12-1

5 Frazil(L) 2-1-8 Napravnik Rice 117 3-1

6 Unbridled Danger(L) 3-4-4 Saez Young 115 15-1

7 Undocumented(L) 5-4-6 Cohen Jacobson 116 6-1

8 Bullet Rain(L) 3-8-1 Jara Kazamias 117 10-1

Bullet Rain owns positional speed and should beat deep closers to the punch in wide-open heat. French Transition tallied swift late pace and final figures when a clear-cut second in last; dangerous. Stealth Missile starts from the fence and is more than good enough on best efforts; big-time player.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3yo. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $15,000. Purse: $16,000.

2 Mom Proof(L) 6-2-2 Serpa Persaud 115 3-1

1 Brynnie's Mr. Smee(L) 7-x-x Musarro Brown 113 5-2

3 Adam Boy x-x-x Santiago Ferraro 120 20-1

4 Paying Attention(L) 8-4-7 Hill Schwartz 120 15-1

5 End of the Gulch(L) 2-6-7 Bocachica Gyarmati 120 3-1

1a Smooth Kahlua(L) 3-3-6 Lezcano Brown 115 5-2

6 Chieftains Warrior(L) 7-x-x Studart DiSanto 120 15-1

7 Hooligan's Delight(L) 5-5-9 Lopez Barbara 120 6-1

8 Malcolm S.(L) 9-5-8 Fragoso Ryerson 120 30-1

9 Fast Spender(L) 5-7-x Luzzi Martin 120 12-1

Mom Proof makes quick comeback and gets class relief after failing to impact on Saturday; rail draw seals the deal. Fast Spender flashed improved speed in last and has ample room for continued development; price will be tempting. End of the Gulch logged fast-figured second at 29-1 in last; must consider.

7

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $15,000.

1 Wadi Suki(L) 2-10-1 Serpa Persaud 115 4-1

2 Theartofcompromise(L) 5-3-1 Musarro Rodriguez 113 9-2

3 One Starry Nite(L) 7-6-1 Hill Martin, Sr. 120 15-1

4 Press Only(L) 5-4-1 Bermudez Gullo 118 10-1

5 Izanagi(L) 1-6-3 Dominguez Contessa 120 3-1

6 Gold Shamrock(L) 8-5-8 Lezcano Imperio 113 20-1

7 Quip(L) 3-1-2 Cohen Autrey 120 7-2

8 Sonny's the One(L) 4-1-6 Lopez Ortiz 111 12-1

9 Who Needs to Know(L) 3-2-4 Saez Baker 118 12-1

10 Metulla(L) 5-5-3 Studart Terracciano 118 30-1

Also Eligible

1a Commissioner Chris(L) 6-4-6 Musarro Persaud 111 4-1

Press Only notched fast early pace figure when speed sharpened in sprint last and projects as the controlling front-runner with stretch to route. Izanagi made bold move to win last and could easily pair up victories at playable price. Quip drops off the claim but owns fast figures on 'A' game; mixed message.

8

6 Furlongs. 4&up. NY Bred. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $42,000.

1 Executive Search(L) 6-5-2 Serpa Jacobson 113 4-1

2 King David J(L) 1-5-7 Lopez Rice 120 4-1

1a Gold Vendetta(L) 2-1-4 Cohen Jacobson 120 4-1

3 January Gent(L) 4-2-2 Dominguez Dutrow 118 5-1

4 Brecciate(L) 9-1-1 Musarro Ribaudo 113 6-1

5 Giant Ryan(L) 9-5-1 Migliore Parboo 118 15-1

6 Freddy the Cap(L) 5-5-6 Davis Barrera 118 30-1

7 Wicked Climb(L) 1-4-2 Lezcano Rodriguez 113 15-1

8 Fiddlers Patriot(L) 2-1-4 Napravnik Weaver 118 3-1

9 Al's Lark(L) 4-3-2 Hill Baker 118 6-1

King David J shook off early pressure en route to wire-to-wire score in last and could get the jump once again in contentious dash. Jacobson entry: Gold Vendetta was fast closing second behind top selection after poor start and mate Executive Search consistently logs fast numbers; potent pairing. January Gent drops for Rick Dutrow and owns fast figures on 'A' game.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $14,000.

2 S. Cavalry(L) 4-7-2 Lezcano DiPrima 118 5-1

3 Mr. Bourbon Street(L) 6-8-10 Dominguez Jacobson 123 9-2

4 Noble King(L) 9-2-4 Bermudez Mena, II 123 30-1

5 Remorse(L) 6-8-11 Alvarado D'Alessandro 123 20-1

6 Prince of Iron(L) 7-5-5 Cohen Autrey 123 6-1

7 Henry Street(L) 3-4-2 Saez Kazamias 123 3-1

1 Natural Speed(L) 8-11-10 Lopez Arroyo 116 12-1

8 Four Star Bo(L) 6-2-4 Gomez Henriques 123 15-1

9 Overextended(L) 8-3-6 Serpa Gullo 118 4-1

10 Kiln Creek(L) 9-9-5 Musarro Barker 116 15-1

1a Acclimate(L) 6-7-4 Santiago Arroyo 123 12-1

11 Fujimo(L) 6-9-11 Davis Tasso 123 20-1

Acclimate fired 3-furlong bullet since displaying improved speed in last; weakness of field is selection's strength. Prince of Iron compiled good-looking work slate for first start since August; dangerous. Henry Street tallied swift pace and final figures when third in last; takes backward step today? Overextended takes sizeable class plunge; damaged goods?
