Race 1

Horse Number: 3
Horse Name: SUPERIORCOURT
Odds: 7-2

Horse Number: 4
Horse Name: SWEET ROYALTY
Odds: 4-1

Horse Number: 1
Horse Name: O JONNIE
Odds: 5-2

Race 1 Comments:  SUPERIORCOURT broke early and trailed in scorching Catskill trot. Two back showed some late trot in 1:54.2 Meadowlands amateur trot. Faces small field and may be best but will need best effort and clean trip. SWEET ROYALTY Tioga shipper has made breaks in 3 of his last 5 and won the other 2 miles in handy fashion when he’s stayed flat. Tries The Catskills for strong trot barn and picks up Bruce.

Odds: 5-2

Race 2 Comments: MY COOL BREEZE rugged senior citizen had even trot last time following a tough first over trip two back. Takes on a field of camera shy foes ( 0 for 53 combined in 2019) and may still have enough in the tank to control it.

Race 4 Comments:  SOMEBOYSOMEWHERE paced a 1:25.2 final three quarters  but had too far to come from tough spot. Moves inside in second try at reduced level and figures hard to beat for “hot” barn.
