RACE 1

4-Divine Deo – Newcomer for Team Burke romped in her new barn/US debut @ Yonkers, then finished a solid third, strong in the win column & draws well to stalk the speed 

 

7-Northern Storm – Beaten favorite fought bravely to the wire in a narrow loss last week, sub 1:50 performer here this season has revived on Lasix for Team Alagna 

 

6-Alumni Seelster – Product of the OSS Grass Roots program raced well in her US debut @ Yonkers for Team Burke & this can be considered a class drop

 

RACE 2

5-P L Olivia – Really came to life with a wire-to-wire blowout second time Lasix, sports a 1:54.4 Mohawk speed badge & has a big chance to set the tone here

 

4-Shenzi AS – Was pace compromised & grinded gamely to hit the board in a noteworthy Big M debut last week, draws better, yet her two for 28 record is a concern

 

1-Pour Me A Double – 2YO rallied to win a nice bounce-back qualifier here last Saturday, Lucas Wallin trainee is two for three, lands the rail & Tetrick

 

RACE 3

1-Watchmeneighneigh – Beaten favorite had dead aim & couldn’t quite polish it off into strong headwinds last week, yet remains a live item on the rail

 

6-Kingofthejungle – 10YO warhorse worked out a perfect trip & came up just a neck shy last week, his post is tougher here, but gate speed can put him in play

 

3-Galactic Galleon N – 0 for 18 this season, finished an even fourth against these last week, draws inside again & still a stalking threat 

 

RACE 4

1-He’s Electric – Only one for 15 this season, yet been racing well against tougher elsewhere this Fall, look for him to be forwardly placed from the rail

 

6-Macintosh N – Two for 32 in 2021, just missed in 1:52.3 here back on November 5, gets some substantial class relief again & can push off the wings with speed for position

 

3-Tuxedo Bay – Go back to that nose loss on the engine from post eight back in late September, draws inside where he can stalk n pop a competitive division 

 

RACE 5

3-Toddler Tantrum – Just two for 32 this season, thought he have more sustain on a well-rated lead & switches back to claimers to atone for Team Bongiorno

 

4-Deedenuto A – Has suddenly caught fire winning back-to-back with perfect trips as the favorite for a hot barn & draws well off a new lifetime mark

 

8-Rycroft – 10Yo has taken a couple of starts to acclimate, rallied to hit the board behind Deedenuto A, stuck farther outside & banks on a hot pace

 

RACE 6

2-Arnie’s Angel – Bumped into a revved up Norman’s Madeline two starts back, drops back down, finally draws inside & in line for a smooth trip

 

1-Nimah Franco N – That was quite the wire-to-wire wake up win @ this level in PA three starts back, had excuses in her last two & draws better here

 

5-Alicorn – After getting wiped out two starts back she bounced back with a solid second as the beaten favorite last week & might be poised for an overdue win

 

RACE 7

6-Beantown Madness – Nice recovery from an early miscue to grab a piece of the pie in his Big M debut, 3YO trending right & makes his second start here for his new barn

 

4-Gab In Motion – Beaten even money favorite launched a premature move to a late lead & settled for second, this 4YO is acclimated now & might be ramping up for a score 

 

3-Big Rich – Interesting 9YO transitions here into the Burke Brigade, would have to turn things around big time, but draws well & gets Tetrick

 

RACE 8

6-Gottalovemyshadow – Chased a 1:51.4 sizzler last week & was claimed, this mare took a 1:50.2 mark here this season, owns a big kick & she’s strong in the win column

 

1-Midnight Lightning – One for 28 this season, but raced well here in his last two, just missed with a late surge into headwinds last week & lands the rail again

 

3-Rock N Blue – Pretty consistent gelding ships in fresh off a solid second @ Harrah’s Philadelphia & draws well to set up his preferred stalking style

 

RACE 9

4-Lightfootedlegend – Was caught in an impossible spot after a slow start from post seven last Saturday, a solid second before that, now drops back down & draws better

 

1-Melania – Tough to gauge this filly after a rare miscue in her Big M debut, her previous form was promising & now Team Svanstedt has listed Dexter Dunn from the rail

 

5-Skyway Kon Man – The Kon Man finished an even fifth while pace compromised last Saturday & now dips back to a more competitive level for Team Cullipher 

 

RACE 10

4-Bruce’s Magic – Classy 9YO draws well fresh off a winning rally as the favorite, the competitive nature of this division & John Calabrese patience sets up a possible repeat

 

3-Cecil Casanova – Roared home from last to just miss last week, 1:51.2 performer here this season draws inside to set up another late charge from closer to the pace

 

1-Elysium Seelster – Nailed by a longshot last week & has been right there in the photo in her last three, sharp mare on the rail where she can set up another stalking trip

 

RACE 11

2-Major Occasion A – Classy 1:48.1 performer was right there a close third in the photo behind Annabelle Hanover on November 5, now tough to gauge after missing a month, but draws inside & might be worth a swing

 

5-Priceless – Hammered down to even money & promptly motored all the way in decisive fashion last week, she looks like the one to catch again for Team Orange Crush

 

3-Annabelle Hanover – Solid runner up to an uncatchable Priceless last week, remains a strong contender for Team Cullipher with a chance to turn the tables

 

RACE 12

3-Beyond Words N – Closed from a tough spot to grab second in an excellent bounce-back mile, now makes her key third start off the bench from an improved post

 

1-Extrilla Hanover – Managed to turn things around with aggressive handling & prevailed in a bitter battle last week & rewarded with the rail for Team Burke

 

6-So Miki Hanover – Forced wide from a difficult spot & picked up minor spoils chasing the standout Priceless, this filly can kick home sharply & just needs the right set up
