RACE 1

1-Surf The Web – Tony Alagna-tuned son of Captaintreacherous prepped nicely with Lasix added & draws the rail in a soft opener

 

2-Caviart Sage – Another Tony Alagna pupil, finished well behind Surf The Web in the latest qualifier, son of Artspeak draws inside & has a chance to improve

 

6-Sunfirewindrain – Ontario bred gelding shipped south off his first win @ Mohawk & now has an acclimating mile to his credit

 

RACE 2

4-Swan Motion – Indiana-bred filly trending in the right direction, arrives fresh off a new mark @ Harrah’s Philadelphia + picks up Andrew McCarthy

 

3-La Dolfina – Gelding was a winner here earlier this season, freshened & qualifier evenly, draws inside for a barn kicking out some recent winners

 

7-Yo’Larry – Rebounded off an early miscue & flashed some late trot in a useful acclimating mile, gelding could surprise these with a smooth trip from a challenging post

 

Race 3

6-Milady Denver A – Solid runner up in her last two, look for more gate speed to put her in play again, she’s certainly fast enough & poised to pounce from off the pace

 

9-JB’s Shooting Star – Has quickly regained her winning form with two straight in 1:53.4, last week’s was a well-rated effort, kicked home in a sharp :27.3 before that

 

8-Summer Rock – Fresh off a well-controlling upset & new mark of 1:54.2 from post nine last week, look for her to get involved from the get-go as she seems to thrive with that style

 

RACE 4

4-Cadillac Phil – Classy 9YO scored fresh off a recent sick scratch, then got parked first over here last week, lands a prime stalking spot for a barn going well

 

6-Sunset Over Miami – Seemed to trending in a positive direction @ Plainridge, then ran into a muddy track @ Scarborough, not sure what we’re going to get here from this 4YO

 

7-Camwiser – 14YO capping his career, recently scored his 56thwin @ Freehold, 1:53.3 winner @ The Big M this season has a chance if they mix it up

 

RACE 5

1-Sew Psyched – This mare’s recent form @ Plainridge has been solid, now a fresh claim by Nick Surick, lands the rail off a tough acclimating mile

 

2-Princess Holly N – Only one for 23 this season, finished an even fourth from the same post last week, in line for another smooth stalking trip

 

5-Racing For Rick – Just two for 36 in 2019, but last week’s effort was worth noting with pace @ both ends & has a chance to build on that

 

RACE 6

4-Redneck Fortune – 10-YO got parked in his last two, scored his only two wins this season last month, ships into a soft spot for Freehold’s leading trainer

 

2-Just N Berlander – Took a 1:52.2 mark here this season at age 8, been toiling in the GSY Series, draws inside to trip out in a field ripe for the taking

 

5-Lettucerocku A – Beaten chalk came up just a nose shy over an off track @ Monticello & his last few efforts have been encouraging

 

RACE 7

4-Big CC’s Rock – Rallied prematurely to a short late lead last week, took a 1:52.3 mark from post eight on 10-19, now a fresh claim by Nick Surick draws inside

 

9-Preppy Art – Goes for 7 in a row for 6 different barns off another claim, wins for everybody from any post, but this may be where the streak gets snapped

 

1-Forevernalways – Steamrolled to a sharp romp in 1:52.1 last week & claimed again by a barn with no record, yet moves inside brimming with confidence

 

RACE 8

5-Kabu – Rallied for a mild upset two starts back, then gave away on the lead as the beaten favorite, big chance to bounce back as a fresh claim for Nick Surick

 

8-House Hubby – Rebounded off a break with a rousing new mark of 1:55.1 from the rail, 4YO with upside now moves outside to complete a strong Nick Surick 1-2 punch

 

9-Max Volo – Nailed him last week @ $8.20, look for more in his third start off a sick scratch despite an even tougher post tonight

 

RACE 9

1-Cracklin Rosie – Was a much better third in her second start here for her new trainer Juan Cano, now draws the rail in a likely spot to show some of her back class

 

6-Woodmere Oleksiak – Caught fire with two straight convincing wins @ Freehold, Maritimes champion continues to find her best stride with a stretch out on the mile track here

 

3-Duck Duck Dragon – Owns a 1:53.3 mark here this season, draws well in a soft field, picks up Gingras & her barn is heating up

 

RACE 10

2-Daylyn Horizon – 1:51 winner @ The Big M this season was twice forced wide as the beaten favorite last week, was claimed by Nick Surick & draws a inside a wide open finale

 

1-Western Toro – Steady sort showed speed @ Vernon Downs, no chance from post eight in his debut here last week, expect more this time from the rail 

 

4-Sharknado – Left Plainridge on a winning note & caught too far back in his first start here, now a fresh claim with an improved post + GIngras
