RACE 8

6-One Eight Hundred – Team Takter tuned colt with a dazzling $800,000 price tag just missed going two-for-two as the heavy favorite @ Harrah’s Philadelphia, won his debut with a :26.4 from post eight @ Pocono before that

 

2-Southwind Petyr – 1:52.4 NYSS winner with a perfect trip in his second career start with sharp pace @ both ends & looms large inside

RACE 9

6-New Heaven – Been maintaining top form @ Yonkers, just one for 10 this season, but drops into a prime spot for Eric Abbatiello

 

4-Getting Messi – Was a hot item @ Yonkers at the end of July, this is a substantial class drop & favorable draw in a field ripe for the taking
