Race 1

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: LK’S NANCY LEE
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: DELIGHTFUL TRYSTA
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: NOTAGAIN
Odds: 9-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: DREAMFAIR HELENA
Odds: 4-1

Race 1 Comments:  LK’S NANCY LEE Ohio invader had no shot from 8-hole over Dayton’s 5/8 mile track last time following a decent third in 1:52.3 mile two back. Ships to The Catskills with a class edge on these and knows her way around half-miler taking a 1:54 mark at Yonkers last year. Edge despite tough draw. DELIGHTFUL TRYSA has been racing in good form at Saratoga and figures to go well with these.

 

 

Race 2

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: JETSTREAM GYPSY
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: SHE ESCAPES ME
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: BEACH JUMPER
Odds: 9-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: DIAMONDSFOREMBER
Odds: 4-1

Race 2 Comments:  JETSTREAM GYPSY had 7-hole and was far back early, paced a snappy :58.3 middle half making up 9 lengths and finished evenly although never a threat. Mare drops another notch, moves inside and should be ready for top try against mediocre bunch which includes three shippers that are 0 for 24 on the year, two coming off long layoffs.

 

 

Race 3

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: ASKMELATER HANOVER
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: BRUTAL STORM
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: JURGEN HANOVER
Odds: 6-1

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: CANTAB ED
Odds: 7-2

Race 3 Comments:  ASKMELATER HANOVER easily handled similar brushing to the top before slow half and powering home with 1:00.2 final half. 3-year-old has hinted at some ability when able to stay flat and gets the nod to repeat.

 

Race 4

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: SIX BAX**
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: ARUBA VACATION
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: BROADWAY JOE
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: BOB N TONY
Odds: 4-1

Race 4 Comments:  SIX BAX had little in local return from tough spot in race he likely needed. Drops a notch, gets slightly better spot and has been competitive against better in The Catskills in the past.

Race 6 Comments:  IDEAL CLASSIC lacked a rally from tough third over spot in fast mile at Yonkers. Gets a good post in local debut and can surprise well matched field on best.

Horse Name: SEA’S IDEAL
Odds: 7-2

Race 9

Horse Number: 6
Horse Name: MYLITTLESURFERGIRL*
Odds: 6-1

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: POWERFUL PULSE
Odds: 9-2

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: K D GA GA
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: DALI DELIGHT
Odds: 5-2

Race 9 Comments: MYLITTLESURFERGIRL rallied wide from tough spot pacing :59.3 final half to nail show in improved try. Worth a shot at a price in finale. POWERFUL PULSE returns to The Catskills after missing two months and had a huge year here in 2019 finishing in the money in 30 of 41 tries. Must be considered from this spot.
