3 Kim Karakorum(L) 9-8-1 Espinoza Odintz 124 15-1

4 Posey Park(L) 9-10-9 Lopez Alvarez 115 30-1

5 Vortices(L) 5-2-4 Coa Toscano 122 7-2

6 Valuable Lady(L) 6-7-3 Luzzi Contessa 116 2-1

7 Vita Veloce(L) 1-4-7 Musarro Levine 113 5-2

Valuable Lady drops and projects as the main speed in cheap opener. Why Because owns competitive numbers on best efforts; dangerous. Vita Veloce could get first jump if pace meltdown ensues.

7 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $13,000.

1 Fortune Faded(L) 8-3-4 Velasquez Schosberg 121 4-1

2 Coney Island(L) 5-3-6 Phillips Saccardo 121 6-1

3 Senegal(L) 4-6-4 Chavez Bond 121 5-1

4 Eddie's Point(L) 7-5-6 Davis Lotruglio 123 10-1

5 Winitback(L) 2-6-1 Gracia Grusmark 113 2-1

6 Gimmee Getme(L) 8-3-10 Bermudez Martin, Sr. 121 20-1

7 Crazy Charlie(L) 4-3-7 Musarro Aquilino 116 3-1

Winitback earned fast pace and final figures when a game second in last; controlling front-runner. Crazy Charlie failed as the favorite in last, but could be in the garden spot if top selection can't handle 7-furlong trip. Coney Island is fresh and drops to lifetime low; consider.

3

1 Mile. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. HILBYS BRITE FLIGHT. Purse: $60,000.

1 Quiet Mover(L) 4-6-1 Saez Barker 118 15-1

2 Casanova Move(L) 1-3-4 Velazquez Pletcher 118 4-5

3 My Dinah(L) 5-6-2 Espinoza Feron 120 8-1

4 French Dip(L) 1-2-2 Cohen Pletcher 118 5-2

5 Weathered(L) 4-6-2 Napravnik Grusmark 123 4-1

French Dip exits sprints and looms the dominant speed at a mile. Casanova Move earned fast late pace figure when winning last at GP; could easily take this. Weathered is more than good enough on 'A' game.

4

11/16 Mile. (Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $40,000.

1 Cocktail Hour(L1) 9-x-x Dominguez Jerkens 116 7-2

2 Sapphire Mink(L) 3-x-x Prado Duggan 116 4-1

3 Lucida(L) 5-5-6 Velasquez Barbara 116 8-1

4 Cougar Cruise(L1) x-x-x Coa Contessa 116 10-1

5 Jill the Pill(L) 4-4-x Rivera Allard 116 15-1

6 Star of Sapphire(L) 6-4-3 Cohen Martin 116 6-5

7 Warrior Spirit(L) 6-8-x Gracia O'Brien 106 30-1

8 Toxic Asset(L) 11-x-x Hill Domino 116 12-1

Main Track Only

9 Jazzy Moves(L) 2-2-4 Dominguez Asmussen 123 9-5

10 Pelican Lake(L1) x-x-x Chavez Bond 116 6-1

Sapphire Mink is training consistently for first start since October and rates call based on price potential in tricky turf heat. Star Of Sapphire, another that's working with a purpose, earned fast number on SA sod last fall; big-time threat. Cocktail Hour gets blinkers/Lasix makeover for potent second-out stable; very dangerous.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Claiming $15,000. Purse: $18,000.

1 Stratton's Girl(L) 4-4-1 Coa Galluscio 118 10-1

2 Got Clearance(L) 9-8-5 Luzzi Levine 118 6-1

3 American Land(L) 8-2-6 Lopez Ubillo 111 15-1

4 Leader of the Lite(L) 1-6-2 Santiago Streicher 118 15-1

5 Picnic Rock(L) 1-4-1 Espinoza Barbara 120 5-1

6 Hot and Bothered(L) 1-8-9 Dominguez Dutrow 118 5-2

7 Red Hot Baby(L) 4-11-4 Hill Terranova, II 118 4-1

8 Sezzana(L) 3-3-1 Chavez Bond 118 3-1

Hot And Bothered holds razor-sharp form and projects as the quickest of the quick with aggressive ride. Sezzana could be favorably positioned in the stalker's seat if fractions get hot and hectic. American Land regressed in last after solid placing in prior; rebound potential.

6

11/16 Mile. (Turf). 4&up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $19,000.

3 Packer(L) 7-6-8 Daniel Jeannont 123 50-1

4 Malibu Moonshine(L) 5-12-5 Cohen Jacobson 123 4-1

5 Patent Pending Tom(L) 2-3-3 Espinoza Fisher 123 12-1

1 Lemon Shore(L) 4-2-7 Luzzi Persaud 123 9-5

7 The Vin Man(L) 3-2-5 Prado Sciacca 123 5-1

8 Medjool(L) 5-7-8 Dominguez Contessa 123 2-1

1a Senor Enrico(L) 6-7-5 Musarro Persaud 118 9-5

2 Galaxy Express(L) 3-3-5 Lopez Barrera 116 15-1

9 Kick Up Your Heels(L) 7-8-8 Bermudez Martin, Sr. 123 50-1

Main Track Only

2b Hurricane Heat(L) 2-5-4 Saez Barrera 123 15-1

Galaxy Express owns a win on the Big A sod and logged swift works for first start since October; primed and ready. Lemon Shore could enjoy soft lead on tight-turned turf course and is training consistently for first start since December; very playable. Medjool wheels back quickly, drops and gets rider upgrade; dangerous on best. Patent Pending Tom closes strongly when in the mood; worth a look if odds are long.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $50,000-$40,000. Purse: $26,000.

1 Liberal(L) 7-2-x Musarro Aquilino 113 10-1

5 Khalifa(L) 8-x-x Cohen Zito 118 5-1

7 Ex Pat(L) 4-5-2 Luzzi Violette 123 5-2

8 Renewed Hope(L1) x-x-x Espinoza Contessa 116 12-1

9 Something Gold(L) 4-4-6 Dominguez Asmussen 123 9-5

R J Hope gets favorable turn back in distance and should receive beneficial front-end flow at fat odds. Something Gold owns speed and fast figures; big-time danger. Ex Pat should pack amplified punch with cutback to sprint; right in the thick of this.

8

1 Mile. (Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $43,000.

2 Ms Stilleto(L) 5-2-5 Espinoza Schettino 122 4-1

5 Clery's Magic(L) 4-6-6 Davis Barrera 122 30-1

6 Cajun Belle(L) 5-5-8 Musarro Signore 117 30-1

7 Mustang Fever(L) 1-3-9 Velazquez Parisella 122 8-1

1a Tulipmania(L) 5-5-1 Cohen Bush 122 3-1

Main Track Only

9 Freud's Notebook(L) 1-1-2 Luzzi Brown 116 7-2

10 Decorated Court(L) 7-6-1 Espinoza Persaud 122 15-1

Ms Stilleto consistently logged swift final fractions last year and is advantageously posted on the hedge. Boxitup compiled three tightly grouped works for first start since November and owns fast figures on best efforts; very playable. Cagey Girl owns speed, fast numbers and drops; likely short price is the knock.

9

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $10,000. Purse: $13,000.

2 Seren Trippidy(L) 3-4-x Santiago DeRosa 123 6-1

3 Little Traveller(L1) x-x-x Saez Ritvo 116 15-1

4 Mochachino(L) 6-x-x Dominguez Asmussen 116 3-1

1 Citizen Balley(L) 2-2-2 Cohen Jacobson 116 5-2

5 Hunter's Score(L) 3-2-3 Musarro Ryerson 111 10-1

6 Smooth Kahlua(L) 2-6-3 Coa Brown 116 5-1

7 Takedouble(L) 7-5-6 Lezcano DeMola 123 50-1

8 Clery's Eyes x-x-x Lopez Barrera 109 20-1

1a Just an Investment(L) 3-5-3 Cohen Jacobson 123 5-2

9 Z. Madison(L) 3-5-8 Gracia Ferraro 113 10-1

10 Mugger Hugger(L) 4-3-4 Davis Creary 123 12-1

Smooth Kahlua owns a sit and pounce running style that could be well served in wide-open nightcap. Citizen Bailey gets helpful cutback in distance and makes first start for new barn; more than good enough on best. Mochachino gets class relief in second start for Asmussen; very dangerous. Takedouble earned improved internal numbers in last start; very interesting.
