RACE 1

2-Yankee Mickey – Consistent gelding from Delaware drops to the bottom rung here & hasn’t missed the board at five furlongs

 

8-Venture Capital – Drops again after a three wide bid here on October 18, just needs the right set up for his closing kick

 

3-Two More Jacs – Two for three at the distance & fresh off a strong return to turf here back on opening night, draws inside & gets Victor Santiago

 

6-Musical Journey – Cut back to five furlongs & rallied four wide for the place here a few weeks ago, drops further in search of a speed target

 

RACE 2

4-Someday On Sunday – Returned to the turf, got way too aggressive, yet still held third, switches pilots & continues on a form spree since the Jorge Navarro claim

 

8-Sunset Time – 4YO filly has blown away similar as the favorite in both trips over this sod, appears to be the main target again with Victor Santiago

 

5-Free d’Or – Drops further after catapulting off a fast pace to score here, has to be considered off that confidence boosting mile

 

6-Quincy Lee – Was breezing nicely for her first start off the bench & failed to menace, loses Victor Santiago, but now faces rock bottom open company & owns a win here

 

RACE 3

10-Enchanted Dreams – Has gone two-for-two here this meet with more in the tank, live item deserves the utmost respect despite an even tougher post

 

3-Ginny G – Just 2 for 30, but rates a long look based on the class drop, bullet breeze, fresh factor, inside draw & switch to Jose Ferrer

 

4-Pi Bella – Veteran mare makes her third start of the meet, improved result when she rallied to hit the board, draws better & figures to be a stalking threat

 

12-Windfast – Rallied to beat better here back on opening night, then rallied from a tough spot to hit the board as the beaten favorite, moves outside yet remains a threat

 

RACE 4

6-She’s My Afleet – Fresh face hasn’t missed the board in seven starts this season, positive rallies just before the latest respite, drops significantly & owns a win at the distance

 

2-Southern Flair – Knocking on the door in both starts this meet, including a narrow loss at five furlongs, ideal inside draw facilitates a stalking threat

 

 

8-Hope For Tomorrow – Turned in a mild rally off a slow pace here back on opening weekend, takes another shot at this reduced level

 

3-Lana Lang – Only 1 for 31, but was right there in the photo with Southern Flair two starts back, improved post makes her a factor

 

RACE 5

5-Moonlight Blaze – Breezing nicely fresh off the maiden breaker at Monmouth Park & drops into a soft spot & faces a camera-shy bunch

 

4-Hard Rumor – Beaten favorite in five of six has gotten up for second in all three starts here this meet, gets a new pilot, lone win came at this distance

 

7-Bazinga Rules – Just 1 for 23, yet rallied for the show just behind Hard Rumor last out, back class lines suggest more in store

 

12-Cherokee Pass – Draws the outside stall, but drops a ton after getting cooked in a duel, latest breeze suggests he has a chance to rebound

 

RACE 6

7-Open Outcry – Easily made it five-for-five off the Trish Farro claim, switches to Victor Santiago for the slight stretch out, demanding post in a strong field

 

6-Cheyenne Nation – New York raider very strong in the win column, made it two of three running up the score here last out, huge threat to repeat

 

5-Couldawouldashould – Did despite getting bumped at the start & hung tough to keep the form spree alive, a must use off his recent form

 

2-Fifth Ave Fancy – Lightly-raced 4YO & fresh item for the raging Greg Sacco outfit just missed despite a bobble at the break & lands inside with upside
