6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $12,500. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $14,000.

1 Miss Hanky Panky(L) 5-8-x Lopez Rice 122 4-1

3 Evil Girl(L) 6-11-7 Musarro Smith 117 20-1

4 Mia's Blaze(L) 10-9-9 Lezcano Jeannont 122 50-1

5 Straight A Student(L) 2-6-9 Napravnik Contessa 116 2-1

6 Flaming Punch(L) 3-4-x Cohen Jacobson 122 5-2

Straight A Student was second as the favorite in last; ability to pass runners is the key. Razzlemedazzleme is speedy, drops and sheds the blinkers; dangerous. Flaming Punch, lightly raced and developing, was less than a length behind top selection last out.

3

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Starters Allowance. 3yo. Purse: $42,000.

1 Dixie Nite Out(L) 1-1-4 Chavez Contessa 122 2-1

5 I Got Swagger(L) 2-1-10 Luzzi Levine 119 15-1

6 Propellor Jones(L) 2-1-2 Cohen Pletcher 119 5-2

Dixie Night Out was a fast-figured, front-running winner in last and could give one more big effort before the bounce. Framed earned improved late pace figure when winning last; very playable. Propellor Jones has yet to fire a bad effort in three starts; logical contender.

4

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 4&up. Purse: $40,000.

1 Something Gold(L) 4-6-6 Dominguez Asmussen 120 5-1

2 Friendly Wager(L) 2-2-2 Saez Martin, Sr. 120 3-1

8 Istishaary(L) 6-9-x Cohen McLaughlin 120 5-2

9 Atticus Rev x-x-x Lopez Chin 113 30-1

Friendly Wager turns back to a sprint and should pack intensified late kick. Chain Mover fired 5-furlong bullet since tough trip behind top selection in last; worth long look. Istishaary ships up from south Florida for McLaughlin; big-time danger.

5

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

1 Rock Hall Honey(L) 1-6-1 Hill Terranova, II 118 6-1

6 Real Moon(L) 3-1-5 Chavez Miceli 118 15-1

7 Purrfect Bluff(L) 2-2-3 Dominguez Contessa 118 5-2

Tempest Storm has won two straight and projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive rider at the helm. Rock Hall Honey is fleet-footed and starts from the fence and could easily lead these throughout. Purrfect Bluff delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency; must respect.

6

6 Furlongs. Claiming $25,000. 4&up. Purse: $20,000.

1 Vinnie Van Go(L) 5-4-2 Napravnik Contessa 120 2-1

2 Five Boroughs(L) 7-2-7 Lezcano Jeannont 120 20-1

3 Blow Up(L) 8-10-1 Studart Toscano 120 6-1

7 Scorch the Torch(L) 6-3-4 Dominguez Hernandez 120 3-1

8 Mr. Enrico 6-10-10 Samyn Ortiz 120 30-1

Scorch the Torch regressed in most recent after top-figured victory in prior; rebounds today. Regal Coyote exits wire-to-wire score and looms the main speed once again; very playable. Vinnie Van Go makes first start with a claiming tag after wide trip in last; right in the thick of this.

7

2 Simple Western(L) 6-4-2 Chavez Quick 122 5-1

9 Saarlandisourland(L) 6-10-4 Lezcano Volk 122 8-1

10 Kim Karakorum(L) 1-4-2 Studart Odintz 122 15-1

Also Eligible

1a Judicial Leader(L) 5-4-5 Dominguez Sciacca 122 5-1

Wheelinndealin was compromised by wide trip in last and should move forward in second start in nearly a year; price play. Doris D. drops into a restricted claimer and makes peak start of form cycle; big-time player. Tom and Dicks Girl is fresh and rested and hails from Hushion barn; dangerous.

8

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Purse: $42,000.

1 The Truffle Man(L) 6-3-4 Saez Jacobson 121 5-2

2 Overextended(L) 3-8-3 Chavez Gullo 121 15-1

3 Temore(L) 1-1-5 Lezcano Ubillo 121 12-1

4 Out of Respect(L) 1-2-1 Dominguez Levine 116 6-5

1a Gold Vendetta(L) 2-3-2 Cohen Jacobson 121 5-2

5 King David J(L) 7-1-5 Napravnik Rice 121 8-1

6 Monte Carlo(L) 6-5-1 Serpa Dutrow 116 8-1

7 Democrat(L) 3-5-7 Alvarado Gutierrez 121 50-1

8 Al's Lark(L) 5-4-3 Lopez Baker 121 6-1

Gold Vendetta owns fast figures and a stalker's style that should be well served in contentious field. King David J was dueled into defeat last time can prove very tough on a clear lead. Al's Lark exits tough trip in last; dangerous on 'A' game. Overextended will pose a threat if pace gets fast and furious.

9

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

1 Pelican Lake(L1) x-x-x Serpa Bond 117 8-1

9 Destiny Road(L) 3-5-2 Cohen Levine 122 6-1

10 Spiritual Tune(L) 4-5-x Migliore Barker 122 8-1

Mama Dukes drops to lifetime low and fired a 5-furlong bullet for first start since August; nice spot for return. Destiny Road logged three tightly grouped workouts since game placing as the chalk last out; very dangerous. Conga Bella takes potent class drop and adds blinkers for Rick Dutrow; could easily take this. Spiritual Tune, another that makes first start with maiden claiming tag, hails from white-hot Ed Barker barn; don't ignore.
