RACE 1

5-Galixton – Hasn’t raced in three weeks since a distant third to Greenshoe in a sizzling NJSS Final, has a big chance to snap his 0 for 12 in a wide-open drop-down scenario here

 

6-Cheap Tricks – Fringe player in the NJSS Series, then broke after sitting a perfect two-hole trip as the heavy favorite, 1 for 17 Burke trainee can rebound in this softer N/W of 1

 

4-Flippen Creek – PASS stakes contender at two was forced to qualify against the likes of Marion Marauder & then Gimpanzee, draws well to make some noise in his 3YO debut

 

RACE 2

2-Kissin In The Sand – Came up short as the heavy favorite on May 18 off a sick scratch, shot home out of range in :25.4 in both Roses Are Red miles @ Mohawk & draws well back here

 

1-Caviart Ally – Tripped out & upset Youaremycandygirl in a leg of this series back on May 18, just missed to Shartin N in the Betsy Ross, fresh from a strong third in the Roses Are Red

 

5-Apple Bottom Jeans – Rock solid consistent mare been slugging it out in the Great Northeast Series, freshened in a spirited 1:48.3 qualifier here, stalking type looms large

 

RACE 3

2-Miss Trixton – One for 16, but made a good account of herself in the NJSS Series, then rallied for the place, while chasing a runaway winner & draws better for Sears & Melander

 

10-Personal Paradise – Off to a sharp start this season with two close seconds in PASS, then romped to a lively 1:53.3 mark in the PA Allstars, lightly-raced filly a threat despite post ten

 

5-Star Track Hanover – Regrouped with a winning qualifier, then tripped out to break his maiden in the comebacker for Team Burke & now reunited with Gingras

 

RACE 4

4-Titus Seelster – Could’ve been sitting on a big one last week & did all he could to finish third in an exceptionally fast mile for this price, look for him to employ a stalk n pop strategy

 

2-Bank Sea – Aggressively driven to a 1:51.4 mark the night he was claimed by Team Fusco, beaten favorite moves inside to get more involved in this intriguing affair

 

8-Village Jackson – Catapulted off the hot half to light up the board at 56-1, the 11YO took a new mark of 1:51.1 in his second try off the claim, tactical speed puts him in play again

 

RACE 5

4-Perlucky – Position & pace compromised in his last two, second to the red-hot Say You Do three starts back, this is a class drop you can’t ignore

 

1-On The Ropes – Lightly-raced 4YO hasn’t won in a long time, but really bounced back off a break with a gutsy first over narrow loss to a big favorite, Ake Svanstedt has been on a roll

 

3-Max Volo – Scored those back-to-back confidence boosting wins recently, then got off to a real slow start from post eight against tougher, drops back to a reasonable level & moves inside

 

RACE 6

2-Crystal Fashion – World record Hambo heat winner in a million dollar 2018 season, just missed here to Muscle M Up on May 18, then cruised @ Pocono & romped @ Tioga

 

8-Atlanta – The 2018 Hambo Hero & Trotter of the Year returns a clean four-for-four this season for Team Burke, fresh from a Canadian record 1:50.2 in the Armbro Flight Final

 

6-Muscle M Up – Sharp trot at both ends & barely outsprinted by Crystal Fashion in :26.1 here on May 18, then grinded gamely in a narrow loss to Custom Cantab @ Tioga, live item indeed

 

RACE 7

4-Don’t Let’em – Rated #6 on the Hambo Top Ten, Peter Haughton Memorial winner in a track record 1:51.4 was absolutely flying in his 3YO debut, draws inside for a hot barn

 

7-The Ice Dutchess – Jim Doherty Memorial & Peaceful Way winner has won two of her first three this season, including a 1:52 mark here fresh off the bench & romped in the PA Allstars for Team Johansson

 

8-Final Claim – Team Burke Hambo prospect looked like the real deal in the Walner Series before his break in the final, tough to gauge his qualifier on sloppy track @ Gaitway & difficult draw here

 

RACE 8

1-Phaetosive – Rallied to upset Preferred foes in her 4YO debut off a sick scratch, then had little chance when they crawled to the half in :58.1 @ Tioga, fresh mare from the rail has a chance if they mix it up

 

4-Six Pack – Track record holder & fastest 3YO trotter in history held off Fiftydallarbiill in :26.2 here on May 18, added Lasix & got a taste of his own medicine with a slow half @ Tioga, Dan Patch Award winner just getting warmed up

 

3-Fiftydollarbill – Breeders Crown champion just missed to Six Pack when that one stole a :58 half on May 18, a solid third in the Maxie Lee, tough trip & game runner up @ Tioga

 

RACE 9

5-Key West – Big Dee’s Trainer of the Week Tony Alagna sends out a lightly-raced & talented filly who finished a solid third in just her second 3YO start, closing in crisp :26.3 last week

 

4-Newsday – Sat a pocket off the rated pace & barely outsprinted Key West for the place, draws a bit better, took her record of 1:51.1 here last season & looking to snap her 0 for 11 in 2019

 

1-Pace Baby Pace – Lost by a nose in her last start here on May 17, then twice hit the board in PA, best of the Burke filly trio in here pushes off from the rail with a one for 16 record

 

RACE 10

7-Yes Mickey – Just missed with a well-driven effort in the Preferred two starts back, had no chance in the Mr Muscleman last out, reunited with Dexter Dunn here

 

1-My Lindy Winner – Followed up his close third to the raging Say You Do with a lively score & new mark of 1:52.2 last week, rewarded with the rail in a competitive match up

 

2-JL Cruze – The King has come to hand recently with Corey Callahan, regained his confidence against easier two starts back, then kicked home in :26.3 off a slow pace in the Mr Muscleman, back inside

 

RACE 11

3-Fox Valley Hermia – Notched her ninth win of the season with a great drive from post seven two starts back, has a chance to rebound by being forwardly placed in a wide-open affair

 

2-Givemeyourheart – Tough to back a one for 20 this season, but she came out of a shuffle to just miss by half a length last week & draws inside again

 

4-Our Els Dream N – Fired out in a wicked :26.3 from post nine & paid the price two starts back, veteran mare with some back class draws inside to set up one well-timed move for The Mann

 

RACE 12

7-Explosive Ridge – Certainly no shame in finishing a close second the Graduate entrant & heavy favorite Fashionwoodchopper last out, has raced well in both starts for his new barn

 

2-Bosse Du Fosse – Only took one start for Mark Silva to figure this one out & he kicked home in a sharp :27.2 enroute to a new mark of 1:55, draw inside again for the step up

 

3-Checkmate Time – Muscle Hill mare gathering momentum for Team Dupont, set a rated pace, but couldn’t hold off Boss Du Fosse, moves inside to possibly turn the tables

 

RACE 13

2-Theraputic – One for 15 this season, yet a solid third in :27.4 fresh off the bench for Team Bamond & hot hands Callahan, draws inside again to follow up in a field begging to be beaten

 

8-Cardinale – Added Lasix & got off to a better start @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, 3YO filly now takes a class plunge for Team Orange Crush, but has to negotiate post eight

 

6-Masster Blue – One for 21 in 2019, chased a revved up Max Volo two starts back, now re-united with the Bionic Man in a wide-open finale
