Horse Name: B BLISSFUL
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: INSANE PROPANE
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: SARNO
Odds: 9-2

Race 1 Comments: NORTHERN IDEAL had 8-hole last time after a strong wire to wire score against tougher two back. 10-year-old has a winning habit visiting the winner’s circle on 15 occasions this year and 60 in his career, gets a better spot against lesser and will likely try to control it. B BLISSFUL’s career is winding down after winning 61 times in his career and has looked great winning three of his last four, post appears only drawback here.

Horse Name: SIX ROSES
Odds: 3-1

Horse Name: AMERICAN CHAMP
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: OUTLAWDANGRUSWATRS
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: BRED TO RACE
Odds: 7-2

Race 2 Comments: SIX ROSES held well after chasing quick pace in last. Should be of some value from this spot but will need best to surprise these. AMERICAN CHAMP has finished well from tough spots in recent, moves inside and appears the one to beat.

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: BROWN TITAN
Odds: 3-1

Race 3 Comments: TYLERS GREAT lacked a rally from second tier through past pace. Gets a better spot here and should be sitting closer to the pace.

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: THE CATAMOUNT KID
Odds: 9-2

Race 4 Comments: CAMTURO ROCK was used hard to get the top from 8-hole, yielded to sit the pocket but lacked a rally through :58.3 final half. Moves inside for hot barn and figures to be tougher in second local try.

Odds: 9-2

Race 5 Comments: IRONBARBASSY isn’t the winningest pacer on the grounds having gone 2 for his last 83 over two seasons, but has looked better in recent weeks including a game placing despite being first over through :59.3 final half on cold Catskill afternoon last time.
