Race 1 Comments:  MINTILISCIOUS hasn’t gotten going yet this year after a solid season in 2019. Makes only sixth start of the year but drops another notch for “Zeke” looking to find winning level and may have found it in opener. JOE SAYS GO has had tough trips in recent and is capable of improving on woeful 6 for 109 lifetime resume. GRAVE DANCER drops and moves inside.

Horse Name: LETTUCEROCKU A
Odds: 5-1

Race 7 Comments:  HICKORY LITTLE RED had nightmare trip last time parked the mile and impeded nearing the half, did well to miss by 1 ¼ lengths in huge mile. 10-year old remains razor sharp and looks like another tough chalk.

 

Race 8

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: ARCH CREDIT*
Odds: 6-1

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: HOT SUMMER KNIGHT
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: SWANCREDIT
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 8
Horse Name: TEDDY BROSEVELT
Odds: 7-2

Race 8 Comments:  ARCH CREDIT was in tough at Pocono last time and far back early, finished with good energy to miss by 3 lengths in 1:56.3 mile. Two back went down the road to beat lesser here in hand. Takes a huge step up to the Open Company but gets a good spot and may be sharp enough to surprise.

 

Race 9

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: RISE UP NOW
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: MAGIC TRICKS
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: OUR REGAL IDEAL N
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 8
Horse Name: ALTA JEROME N
Odds: 4-1

Race 9 Comments:  RISE UP NOW narrowed in gamely to just miss in 1:55.3 Saratoga mile last time. Returns to The Catskills at reduced level and looks tough to beat.

Race 10

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: MUAY HANOVER
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: VALLORIA N
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: ETERNAL PRINCE
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: SUPERIORCOURT
Odds: 5-1

Race 10 Comments:  MUAY HANOVER was overmatched against Open Company last time but did show brief speed before tiring around final turn. Meets much lesser here and will likely try to control it. VALLORIA N comes off two game uncovered placings against the sharpest trotter on the grounds and looks hard to beat.  

 

Race 11

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: PRETTY BOY B
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: KB’S BAD BOY
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: DR SNOW
Odds: 9-2

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: PV COMING HOME
Odds: 5-2

Race 11 Comments:  PRETTY BOY B chased fast miles in last two. Gets the rail and is my best guess in weak field.
