RACE 1

3-Omaha Omaha – Severely pace compromised from post nine in his second acclimating mile, showed some talent & potential in the Weiss Series & draws better here

 

5-Winner Up – Returns fresh off the mile of his life in NYSS @ Vernon Downs, lightly-raced 3YO lands in a real soft spot here for Trond Smedshammer

 

6-Dover Dony – Stole the Weiss Series Finale in a career best 1:54 before chasing the eventual Graduate division winner Muscle M Up, no such standouts in this match up

 

RACE 2

5-Bettor Joy N – Stablemate to standout Shartin N missed three weeks before that solid second in the slop @ Pocono last out & did some major damage in the Blue Chip Matchmaker Series

 

4-Kissin In The Sand – Took control & couldn’t sprint with the top ones off the sick scratch last week, classy millionaire with a high winning percentage eligible to rebound off that needed start

 

1-Bettorhaveanother – Kicks off a strong Burke entry, fresh off solid acclimating mile, owns speed & draws well in an intriguing match up

 

RACE 3

6-French Café – Won her 3YO debut with a mighty final quarter, then took control & had to settle for third to Evident Beauty last week, chance to rebound reverting back to an off-the-pace strategy

 

5-Evident Beauty – Tripped out & delivered as the heavy favorite in round one last week, talented Nifty Norman trainee looks to go two-for-two fresh off the bench

 

1-Marvelous Trix – Broke her maiden with a sharp late burst, then came up against Queen Of Trixs, who stole that division, stalks the speed from the rail & continues to improve

 

RACE 4

6-Daylon Horizon – Was on quite a roll against these using his big late kick prior to his last two, has a chance to swoop this bunch with one well-time move

 

2-Village Jackson – Beaten favorite hit the board for the third straight time, just missed two starts back, draws inside fresh off the claim & retains Yannick Gingras

 

3-Oh My Joepa – Flashed a bit of late life for minor spoils last week, draws better, retains Dexter Dunn & makes his third start off the recent claim

 

RACE 5

6-Southwind Chrome – Lightly-raced 4YO did well against formidable Graduate foes last week, gathering steam on the comeback trail with potential untapped

 

4-Polite Discretion – Tripped out & nailed a very game Stenhouse Hanover to go three-for-three in his 3YO debut, Tony Alagna Hambo hopeful draws better with loads of upside

 

9-Stenhouse Hanover – Lands outside again fresh off an excellent speed try from post ten, just missed in :26.3 before that, tough to dismiss

 

RACE 6

7-Hannelore Hanover – 2017 Horse of the Year & fastest trotting mare in history makes her seasonal debut in a taylor made spot, beat top Hambo prospect Gimpanzee in the qualifier

 

4-Muscle Diamond – Notorious Big M lover & Preferred class major player always performs well fresh, made a rare break in the comebacker, makes his second start after four months on the sidelines 

 

2-JL Cruze – Track record holder offered a bit more in his second start this season, lands post two again with a chance for a smooth trip & resurfacing of back class

 

RACE 7

3-Captain Krupnik – Finished an even fourth in his 3YO in NYSS for Ake Svanstedt, not sure how much more he has, but draws well here in a prime spot for his first career win & worth a swing

 

5-Dark Pool – Was able to regain his form in his last two & ships in off a blowout @ Yonkers, one of the bright spots in a highly suspect field

 

1-Lucky Weekend – Bumped up several notches fresh off the mile of his life last week, lightly-raced 3YO lands the rail with a chance to improve further

 

RACE 8

3-No Drama Please – Beaten favorite & runner up again when he rated the pace & was gunned down by a surprisingly good Soul Strong, draws inside to show his superiority

 

2-Hudson River – Both qualifiers were superb, yet sat a two-hole & broke in his 3YO debut last week, gets a big chance to atone from post two again in a field begging to be beaten

 

4-Battenberg – Certainly no shame in finishing third to Greenshoe last week, now has two tighteners to build on from inside post in an wide-open division

 

RACE 9

5-Rock N Shard N – Another NZ-bred mare about to set the world on fire, her last two blowouts @ Harrah’s Philadelphia were impressive, big chance to step up on the mile track

 

7-Miss You N – Red-hot NZ-bred mare arrives on a seven-race winning streak with no end in sight, her only US loss came with a terrible trip from post eight @ Yonkers back in early February

 

3-Tall Drink Hanover – Major stakes winner from the stellar first crop of Captaintreacherous served noticed with her latest two qualifiers, draws inside to make an immediate impression

 

RACE 10

7-U Need Stones – Beat these with an aggressive effort & new mark of 1:53 two starts back, chased a sizzling 1:51.3 Fiftydallarbill last out, Burke trainee loves the Big M

 

2-Say You Do – Reeled off two straight decisive wins & lowered his mark to 1:53 before coming up third last week, improving 4YO moves inside to control his destiny in career form

 

10-My Lindy Winner – On a long form spree for Team Harmon, cranked it up further in his last two with trotting hopples off & beaten favorite remains a serious contender despite post ten

 

RACE 11

5-Traffic Jam – Launched a premature bid for a late lead & settled for third last week, just missed before that in :26.4 & remains a serious threat for Team Harmon

 

4-Whiskersonkittens – Veteran mare has found a new lease on life with three straight stalking trips, fresh off a new mark with another inside draw

 

6-Filly Forty Seven – Set a rate pace & faded to fourth last week, draws a bit better off that acclimating mile & could be more effective stalking the speed

 

RACE 12

5-Gloria Pierre – Only one for 16 in 2019, yet her recent form has been solid elsewhere, can stalk from a midpack draw & make a quick adjustment to the mile track with some class relief

 

2-Major Maid – Just one for 16 this season, but gets substantial class relief for her third start off a sick scratch, expect Eric Abbatiello to have her forwardly placed

 

4-John’s One Desire – Fresh off an easy win @ Freehold as the heavy favorite, has a big chance to employ her brush n crush style from an inside draw

 

RACE 13

9-Ohio Larry – Made the mile track re-adjustment with a game grind & solid second to Abbeylara last week, draws a tougher post, but gets another shot at this bottom claiming level

 

6-Abbeylara – Took three starts off the claim to regain winning form with his season’s best, a huge threat repeat with a similar rally

 

1-Ideal Candidate – Note the solid second against $10,000 claimers back on April 30, lands the rail for his second start off a lame scratch
