FIRST RACE: 1. Katerrific, 2. L X Sunrise, 3. Taie It Slowly. LONG SHOT: Scoozi.
SECOND RACE: 1. I Don’t Care Who, 2. Perfect Set, 3. Bluegrass Reward. LONG SHOT: Half Strike.
THIRD RACE: 1. Chaulk O Lattey, 2. Twentyfive to Life, 3. Tale of Papa Nick. LONG SHOT: Discatsonthesquare.
FOURTH RACE: 1. Smart Journey, 2. Trelawny, 3. Fighter Squadron. LONG SHOT: Royal F J.
This 6-year-old SMART JOURNEY (8-1) drops into a claimer for the first time, but trainer Mark Glatt is 19% with claimers. The horse has had plenty of experience on the downhill turf course and jockey Flavian Prat knows what to do on the grass.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Relentless Heat, 2. Senor Rain, 3. Nextdoorneighbor. LONG SHOT: No Contingency.
SIXTH RACE: 1. Midnight Hawk, 2. Setsuko, 3. Prime Issue. LONG SHOT: Batti Man.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Day of Fury, 2. Anxious Times, 3. Christopher Street. LONG SHOT: Street Maven.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Bandido Too (best bet), 2. Pure Thunder, 3. Sky Heart. LONG SHOT: Muzzled Mousse.
BANDIDO TOO (7-2), a 3-year-old, had been gelded since his last start by trainer Tim Yakteen, who is 3-for-4 with horses coming off a layoff of 61-180 days. Jockey Tyler Baze retains the mount on the class dropper and look for improved speed.
