RACE 1

2-Keystone Nikki – Drops back to the bottom condition level & draws inside again in a solid form, tripped out to beat these back in late February with a lifetime best of 1:52.3

 

6-Shewearsthepants – Her lone win this season came here back in late March wire-to-wire from post eight in a career best of 1:52, fresh off an improved effort third time Lasix & retains Tetrick

 

8-Major Maid – Made a quick transition to the mile track here & took full advantage of significant class relief with a game grind & new mark of 1:52.4, tougher post, but trending right

 

RACE 2

3-Greenshoe – Became an instant Hambo favorite with his stunning 1:51.2 3YO debut in only his fifth career start, evidently has calmed down behind the gate, draws inside again & may be the sport’s next trotting superstar

 

10-Sheena’s Boy – Fresh an easy maiden-breaking score @ Pocono he set the table for Greenshoe two weeks ago, moves outside, but remains a serious part of the Svanstedt trio in here

 

8-Soul Strong – Has crushed first over to go two-for-two fresh off the bench, clearly outgamed No Drama Please in round one, like his stablemate he draws outside, but has major upside

 

RACE 3

4-Max Volo – Drops back to the bottom class off a no-chance trip & break before that, a solid second against these on May 10, any semblance of that effort puts him across here

 

7-Fiji – Raced well in his last two amateur events @ Yonkers, coming around after a recent sick scratch, took a mark of 1:53.3 here last season

 

5-Red Wies And Blue – Mare tries the mile track fresh off a solid rally for third @ Yonkers, midpack stalking type has a chance to step up in a wide open field

 

RACE 4

4-Don’t Let’em – 2018 Peter Haughton Memorial winner in a track record 1:51.4, rebounded to win his third qualifier with authority for team Johansson & draws well to spark his promising journey to the Hambo

 

5-Say You Do – 4YO gelding has really turned the corner winning three of his last four, lowered his mark again to 1:53 with a decisive score last week, could be the one to beat

 

9-Super Schissel – Matron Stakes winning freshman qualified with zeal against fellow Hambo prospects Greenshoe & Gimpanzee, returns with a tough draw in a competitive field, but this is a serious colt for a top barn

 

RACE 5

2-Totally Takter – Hammered down to 2-1 in his 3YO debut, set a solid pace & settle for third, broke over an off track two weeks ago, Hambo eligible for an elite barn draws well to rebound in only his third career start

 

6-Stenhouse Hanover – One for 34 record is a major concern, runner up in his last three, his latest two from outside posts against undefeated Pilot Discretion, lands in a prime spot

 

5-Lucius Vorenus – Added Lasix but has been buried in two legs of NJSS, this is a much osfter spot for this Joe Holloway trainee to find his best stride

 

RACE 6

6-Queen Of Trixs – Parlayed her standout second qualifier with an eye-opening upset in her sophomore debut, lots to build on in a marquee match up with Evident Beauty

 

7-Evident Beauty – Won both qualifiers before taking a new mark of 1:53.3 in her comeback with a “Nifty” :26.3, came right back to nail French Café with another convincing rally

 

9-Starita – Runner up to Evident Beauty in round one was able to steal a :58.2 half & cruised away from Special Honor last week, consistent Trixton filly rates highly despite post nine

 

RACE 7

4-Lucky Weekend – That easy win in a career best 1:53.4 two starts back was nothing to sneeze at, you have to forgive the rare miscue last out, lightly-raced 3YO draws inside to bounce back

 

1-Gold Medal Swan – Really turned his game around with a game grind & narrow loss as the heavy favorite last week, now gets class & post relief in a field begging to be beaten

 

3-Veyron – Returns to the mile track here at a much easier level & draws better for Scottie Z, gets a chance to conjure up some back class in this field of question marks

 

RACE 8

4-Fashion Creditor – Classy gelding trotted home in a crisp :26.2 in the Mr Muscleman Series two starts back, returns to the mile track in top form with post four again 

 

6-Perlucky – Just missed in the Open @ Yonkers before a rare miscue, beaten favorite here off a game grind chasing the raging Say You Do in an excellent acclimating mile for Trond

 

2-Two AM – Won three of four before coming up against Preferred types last week, hard-trying gelding high in the win column, loves the Big M & draws inside to set up a stalking trip

 

RACE 9

2-Manyofmanyimages – Stablemate to O’Brien Award winner Will Take Charge ships in fresh off a decisive score @ Yonkers & draws inside to face a camera-shy field

 

7-Mighty Nicky – Badly beaten favorite hasn’t been a factor in both starts @ Yonkers since shipping south into the Team Bongiorno barn, switch to the bigger track & soft match up may spark something

 

4-King Cast – Seemed to come around with the addition of trotting hopples recently @ Yonkers, draws well to rebound off a break & took his mark of 1:55.2 here last season

 

RACE 10

7-Di Oggi – Was knocking on the door here before kicking it in @ Pocono in the slop, this Ake Svanstedt trainee ships back to the Big M with no standouts on view & owns a wicked kick

 

6-Stonebridge Gamble – No chance in his latest against salty N/W 8 company @ Yonkers, wire-to-wire in the slop @ Pocono before that & just missed here as the beaten favorite on May 3

 

10-In My Dreams – 4YO has come to life with two straight wins @ Yonkers as the heavy favorite, the latest at an added distance, looms large despite post ten

 

RACE 11

2-DiamondToothgertie – Had regained her winning form before being overmatched in her last two @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, gets class & post relief for a barn that must always be feared

 

6-Traffic Jam – Had been dropping positive hints & erupted with the mile of her life last week, has a big shot to repeat right back in the same class for Team Harmon

 

8-Rockin the Boys A – Beaten favorite with a sharp rally in her Big M debut & first start for Andrew Harris, bumped up in class & draws a tougher post, yet remains a major danger

 

RACE 12

7-John’s One Desire – Sporting a couple of big wins @ Freehold recently & she raced well for minor spoils in her Big M debut, can easily improve off that acclimating mile 

 

5-Pirinea’s Princess – Forced first over into a quickening pace in her switch to the mile track here last week, just one for 19 this season, but gets another chance against lesser stock

 

10-Princess Brisa – Back-to-back second against much tougher N/W 4 company @ Yonkers recently, post ten is an obvious challenge, yet she has some speed to get involved

 

RACE 13

8-Uf Rockin Dragon – Steady 9YO gelding has been on a roll, wired bottom level condition stock here in 1:52.1 back on April 6, look for him to blast off, then settle for a stalking trip

 

3-Just N Berlander – Hot item at the claim box was on quite a form spree before suffering from a slow start in the GSY Series, draws better to try tougher $10,000-$12,500 foes

 

1-Serious Major – Hammered down to 2-1 favorite & promptly wired them with a well-rated effort from post nine last week, moves all the way inside to set up a repeat
