RACE 6 - Claiming - 1-1/16 Miles

GOLDEN GLINT (3-1): is 6-for-17 here, 1-for-11 elsewhere, and is a 4-time winner at the trip. Eppler has been white hot recently and is 2-for-4 with Toledo of late.

SCORCH (4-1): hasn’t started since January now makes first start for Michael Dickinson, legendary with long layups--40% effective in that scenario this year. Has been competitive with better than he meets here.

I CAME TO PARTY (12-1): was a game second in Delaware two-turner two starts back then tried stakes sprinters at Delta last out, albeit around two turns; back to reality here and owns (4) 2-2-0 record at the trip.

AFLEET WILLY (4-1): gelded 3YO is racing in career form, loves the strip and handles this trip; Carrasco aboard for three-back win.

EXOTICA: Monkey’s Medal (10-1), 10-Street Spice (10-1)

RACE 7 - Maiden Claiming - 2YO - 5-1/2 Furlongs

PERFECT PARTY GIRL (7-2): goes turf to dirt and drops to career low level for McMahon, 23% effective dropping into maiden claimers and 21% going turf to dirt; likely to shake loose.

SWEET ZORAYA (4-1): went well with strong mid-race move before tiring late in recent return from layup; has never run this cheaply and Feliciano takes a return call.

UNASHAMED (20-1): is the longer, uncoupled McMahon who drops, adds blinkers, and Cintron sticks after getting beaten off in debut; interesting at early line odds.

SO REFRESHING (6-1): is by 15% debut sire, dam has dropped three winners from five starters to race and Trombetta, 17% efficient with maiden claimers, can get them ready on debut.

HANALEI SUNSET (6-1): Eppler is 21% effective with maiden claimers and has won 4 of last 16 with debut types; all three of dam’s progeny have won.

CHIPS ICLUDED (15-1): makes second start off the layup, a 17% scenario for Salzman, and drops after showing much improved early speed and switches to Toledo; value on early line.

EXOTICA: 16-On The Prowl (20-1)

RACE 8 - Allowances - 3&Up - 6 Furlongs

WILLIE B MINE (8-1): is 3-for-15 at this trip, 0-for-12 at all others, and owns two wins on this surface. Last under these conditions was big improvement and likely to win this at fair odds with similar effort.

NICACADIC ROCKS (9-5): was a very good second over strip he loves after being ambitiously placed in both priors. Serpa sticks and switch to outside position should benefit. Mate IT BEHOOVES ME won prior here before shipping to GP Claiming Crown event last time; reunites with winning rider Pimentel and placed realistically here.

MR. GAME SEVEN (15-1): showed marked improvement as open lengths winner of Laurel return, improving his 6F record to 2-for-3 and Pedroza takes the return call. Good value on early line.

BETHEL WILDCAT (8-1): is straightforward after two starts and now makes Laurel debut for Motion switching to local barn regular McCarthy; turnback and outside post likely to help.

EXOTICA: 10-Daily News (9-2)

RACE 9 - Maiden Claiming - 3&Up - 5-1/2 Furlongs

PARADISE BIRD (8-5): chased better before tiring in last at 7F but went very well at this trip in prior after adding blinkers. Gets outside draw again for Ness, 30% effective with two-class droppers. Switch to Toledo (28% for barn recently) augurs very well vs. awful group.

WAVES ON THE SEA (8-1): makes second start at this level after losing rider in last and better suited by shorter trip; can improve quickly for barn that’s profitable 19% with maiden claimers; wakeup play at early odds or greater.

MAGIC COOKIE (10-1): looms a pace play from the pole while dropping to career low level in return from long layup; demand 8-1 or greater.

MATTERS TO ME (15-1): turns back to more favorable trip and removes blinkers after adding them for her latest; barn 2-for-5 recently; more wakeup potential here.

EXOTICA: 6-Axis Mundi (12-1)
