Race 1

Horse Number: 2      
Horse Name: FIVE TOWNS
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: LADYS BIG STORMONT
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: E R SHANE
Odds: 7-2

Race 1 Comments:   FIVE TOWNS ships in from Saratoga for this amateur event and raced in Open Company last time. 10-year-old raced well in these events in last visit and holds a class edge on these.

 

 

Race 2

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: DIABANDO
Odds: 9-2

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: CAL
Odds: 9-5

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: TKR’S METRO SPECS
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: SIX ROSES
Odds: 3-1

Race 2 Comments:  DIABANDO had a tough spot in local debut and was used up chasing quick pace. Moves inside, drops and 9-time winner in 2019 who scored in 1:55.1 a year ago at Yonkers looks worth another shot. CAL was parked pushing hot pace against tougher, drops and gets the rail.

 

 

Race 3

Horse Number: 5
Horse Name: PERSIST BLUE CHIP*
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: LETTUCEROCKU A
Odds: 6-1

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: MELANIE’S FRAN
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: RUTHLESS DUDE
Odds: 5-2

Race 3 Comments: PERSIST BLUE CHIP returns to The Catskills at reduced level after chasing fast miles at The Meadowlands. 4-year-old was a powerful wire to wire winner at this level back in October and may offer some value in tough field.

 

 

Race 4

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: MISTER TRUTH
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 8
Horse Name: REFLEXIONOFROYALTY
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: GOLD STAR ROGER
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: SUITS
Odds: 5-1

Race 4 Comments:  MISTER TRUTH finds a better spot in second local try and seems better than these. REFLEXIONOFROYALTY draws 8-hole but take sharp drop and can be a factor with any kind of trip.

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: RELENTLESS DREAMER
Odds: 3-1

Horse Name: RIVER RUNS DEEP**
Odds: 3-1

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

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: ROAD UNTRAVELED
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 2
Horse Name: BIG MACH
Odds: 5-2

Race 7 Comments:  RIVER RUNS DEEP carved out a wicked pace in local debut and first try for Lounsbury in race he likely needed and understandably tired. Drops and should be set off that tightener.

 

 

Race 8

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: SOMEBOYSOMEWHERE
Odds: 5-2

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: ACTON ONELASTTIME
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: DR SNOW
Odds: 3-1

Horse Number: 7
Horse Name: SANDINISTA
Odds: 8-1

Race 8 Comments:  SOMEBOYSOMEWHERE had even pace in the slop off the bench following a powerful qualifier here on 10/30. 4-year-old is far better than this level when right and should wrap up the week on a winning note.
