RACE 1

2-Windsong Parisian – 3YO filly offered a noteworthy rally for second to Glenferrie Bronte N in her much-needed Big M debut & draws inside again to build on that & possibly turn the tables

 

6-Glenferrie Bronte N – 8YO came to within a few ticks of her lifetime mark with a first over crush @ 9-1 last week, The Mann no doubt has this veteran mare on her toes

 

4-Summer Rock – Hammered down to just 5-1 & it took four starts since switching to Robert Lounsbury to really turn her game around, first over crushing score gave Hunter Oakes his first Big M win

 

RACE 2

5-Very Very Fast – Go back to his gallant second to Misslarose from post ten on 10-25, draws a bit better for another shot at this reduced level & got to like his high number in the win column

 

1-Say You Do – 11-time winner this season, beaten favorite used too hard from post eight & still held second to The Last Chapter, draws inside that rival with a 1:51.4 mark here this season

 

3-Silvermass Volo – Second in his last three, made up a lot of ground to get within a length of Uncle Hanover last week, bumped up in class, yet draws better to get within closer striking range in this competitive match up

 

RACE 3

1-Mayfair Johnny B – Something tells me this gelding has more in the tank, suffered from a real slow start from post nine last week, has a big chance to save ground & pounce late at a price

7-U Need Stones – Burke trainee returns primed from a nearly three-month layoff off a strong qualifier here, fresh Big M lover can fire out again steal away from a lackluster field

 

4-Majestic Sunset – Offered a bit more late life to hit the board in his second start off the bench with trotting hopples added, now his post improves & he knows how to get it done here

 

RACE 4

4-Wise Image – Only one for 18 this season, but that was a 1:50 mark here, freshened with four months off, qualified okay & returns in a softer spot for Team Harmon

 

2-Bettor Spirits N – Been holding his own against better company @ Saratoga in his last few, very competitive in this series here before that, look for him to protect his inside post & fire out close to the pace  

 

7-Polak A – Just one for 28 in 2019, but this is a classy 11YO who was nosed out in 1:51.4 @ Pocono recently, gets some class relief, changes barns & venues, can’t be ignored

 

RACE 5

1-Village Jackson – 1:51.1 winner here this season not strong in the win column, yet seems to have been hinting in his last two, now switches to Tetrick & lands the rail

 

3-Preppy Art – Was a well-meant repeater when he outgamed the favorite Walks Of Life from post ten last week, moves inside fresh off the claim & rammed right back in for the same price

 

7-Daylyn Horizon – Gave him a big chance in his last two & couldn’t get by Preppy Art, draws post seven again, his start has to be better & the pace must be hot

 

RACE 6

7-JK Captain Jack – 3YO has been flying under the radar on the comeback trail for Juan Cano, closed from tenth into a :53.4 back half last week & finds a camera-shy bunch

 

1-Titanium N – Yonkers invader has struggled through a one for 34 season, plummets down the class ladder, lands the rail here + adds our Driver of the Week

 

2-Hudsonandbernard – Was really steamrolling off the fast fractions & just missed two starts back, simply out of range, while pacing home in :54.4 last week & now draws better

 

RACE 7

6-Zlatan – With a 1:52.3 mark here this season this gelding has been edging closer to another win, just missed last week with a strong late surge, don’t mind the step up off a sharp loss

 

8-Union Forces – 3YO suddenly got his act together & romped for Team Orange Crush from the same post a couple of weeks ago & this could be construed as a class drop

 

2-Mystical Motor – The Motor was revved up winning his first two fresh off the bench, then rallied solidly for third against this kind last week & lands inside to trip out

 

RACE 8

7-Believe In Me – Has been knocking on the door against better @ Yonkers, only three for 32 this season, but this Brett Pelling trainee has been dangerous here in the past

 

4-Brooklyn Lilacs – Beat these with a mighty :26.4 & new mark of 1:50.3 two starts back, rallied prematurely to a clear late lead last week, draws inside again to set up a better timed moved

 

5-Shezza GNP N – Dropped n popped in a big way with a new lifetime mark as the even money favorite last week, bumps up in class while brimming with new-found confidence

 

RACE 9

5-Crazshana – Steady gelding with some back class drops another notch, lands an ideal midpack post & finds a fields a highly beatable field

 

7-Life Well Lived – Appreciated his recent layoff, came right back a winner & solid second last week, took a 1:54.4 mark here last season & may be primed to blow by them with the right trip

 

3-Max Volo – Sports a 1:53.3 mark here in 2019, eligible to step it up in his second start off the bench with another inside draw in a very interesting puzzle

 

RACE 10

5-Kadabra Queen – Grinded gamely to a clear late lead as the beaten favorite last week, drops another notch, retains Scott Zeron & lands a prime spot to exploit

 

8-Lucky Matter – Makes his Big M debut for a new barn, shows some competitive lines in tougher classes @ The Meadows, post eight is no picnic, but he picks up Dave Miller & faces a camera-shy bunch

 

6-No Excuses – Has a couple of close seconds recently with seemingly no excuses @ Pocono,  but has piled up $100,000 this season & can do it either way

 

RACE 11

7-Mocedes Boy – Hoosier Park shipper arrives fresh off a career best blowout in Indiana, only eight starts this year, so this 3YO is just starting to ramp up his game for Team Miller

 

5-Oberto – The red-hot Dexter Dunn did a great job of keeping him alive to the wire in that narrow loss last week, an excellent rebound effort off those recent breaks as well

 

4-Avalonia – Late-blooming 3YO filly has won two of her last three elsewhere, fresh off a new mark she draws inside to tap her upside further for Team Svanstedt

 

RACE 12

4-Cracklin Rosie – Seen her act here in the past, ships from The Meadows, changes barns to Juan Cano, gets class & post relief & adds Dave Miller

 

7-The Lady Sheriff – Just one for 22 this season, beaten lukewarm favorite had only mild late pace to hit the board, now makes her third start off the bench with Lasix added

 

1-I Will Do It – Has rallied for minor spoils in her last few, moves inside second time Lasix & would benefit from a stalking trip within closer range in this wide-open field 

 

RACE 13

3-Tailgunner Hanover – 1:52.4 winner here this season, finished much better to hit the board in his second start off the bench, draws the same inside post & could be on the verge

 

5-Ideal Son – Had won two of three off the recent claim before just missing from an impossible spot last week as the beaten favorite, a live item draws a lot attention here

 

7-Pecorino – Stormed home from a tough spot to just miss to Ideal Son two starts back, 4YO returns to the mile track with a challenging post & needs some speed to shoot at
