Opening Saturday night, an inaugural two-inning special weight event for state-bred three-year-old fillies, #1 May Mays Castle (3-5) she may finally end bridesmaid status at a rock-bottom price for trainer James W. Casey. #2 Juju on Da Beat (7-2) he was second on his debut and can improve on his latest effort to fourth place. #5 My Sister Pam (5-1) he was solid penultimate out and deserves respect here for coach Javier Contreras. #3 Baker’s Rosebud (15-1) he was second against single claimers and makes him jump to the hardest level.

RACE two


In this two-turn event for $10,000 claimants, #2 Gold Bead (8-5) makes manager Norm Cash’s hometown debut and gets a slight surprise nod here. #3 Suzyselling seashells (7-5) he has been second in each of the last two after a strong score and looks like the solid favorite in this spot for coach Ronney Brown. #6 Cross in the Castle (5-2) he won two and has a chance to atone for trainer Anthony Farrior’s last effort. #1 Victory Royale (15-1) he was a solid third after three modest attempts since arriving from Mountaineer Park.

  • Resolute Joe in Tesio’s Triumph

    It was a Mike Trombetta-trained exact in Saturday’s Federico Tesio at Laurel Park, with Joe narrowly edging out stablemate Mr. Jefferson to win.



In this three-turn event for $5,000 claimants, Holiday Bonus #1 (7-2) gets a favorable internal draw for the marathon issue for Coach Mike Jones, Jr. and gets a nod for minor annoyance. #5 Autistic Revolution (7-5) he has held good form for several local coaches and looks a favorite here for coach Ronney Brown. #7 Jungle Warrior (8-5) deserves respect for coach Anthony Farrior despite the tricky outside draw. #2 The Iron Bank (20-1) he gets a nice inside slot and could complete several tricks for a generous price.



In this two-turn event for the first claimants of $12,500, Officer Slaughter #2 (8-5) He leaves the maiden special weight company after three tries and prepares to graduate to a tag for trainer John Carlisle. #3 Hook the chain (6-1) she’s been second at this level three times in the past for trainer M. Joanna Boggs and deserves respect here at a decent price. #7 Quick (9-5) seeks to obtain a diploma in the twentieth attempt of his life. #4 Genius Medal (8-1) seeks to graduate in eighth start race.



In this competitive two-shift assignment for fillies and mares, #3 Repair (4-1) He was a solid second in trainer Anthony Farrior’s home debut and gets the go-ahead to get past a group of solid invaders here. #2 Saratoga Beauty (3-1) he’s been first and second in two recent starts at Aqueduct and makes his hometown debut for trainer Jeff Englehart as probably a lukewarm favorite. #4 Pettigo Girl (5-1) makes his hometown debut and is looking for the first win in six tries this year for trainer Gary Contessa. #5 Trumpet Lilly (9-2) he also makes the hometown debut for trainer Norm Cash and deserves respect in an open event.



In this interesting two-shift assignment for state servants, #7 Jungle Beast (5-2) He returns two laps apart after being humiliated in the one-lap sprint and last year’s West Virginia Futurity hero gets the nod here for trainer Javier Contreras. #1 Shameless Risk (7-2) gets favorable lane draw and can finally end coach Ronney Brown’s 15-month drought at this spot. #2 yarn (4-1) he’s been second in each of the last two for trainer Jeff Runco and deserves respect here. #4 Spanglish (5-1) she has won both starts this year for trainer Elizabeth Meehan and is shaping up to be a major player in the controversial affair.



In this two-round assignment for raised in the state, #2 Settlement date (8-1) graduated at the beginning asking in a special one-turn maiden weight race on St. Patrick’s Day and looks to compete against the winners at a generous price while stretching for trainer Analisa Larrosa. #3 late in the game (7-2) he graduated last on the eighth down for trainer James W. Casey and the stakes-placed running back is shaping up to be a threat here. #6 My Boy Clyde (9-2) he’s been fifth and fourth in two season starts since graduating last fall for coach Javier Contreras, but he could make up for it at this spot. #7 Tyrannosaurus Tyry (4-1) deserves respect here for coach Jeff Runco.



In the Saturday night finale, a $5,000 one-turn maiden claim event, #8 Hink’s Paladin (6-1) makes the home debut of coach Rebecca Johnston and gets a favorable outside draw that could lead to the reversal of the initial start at Turfway Park. #7 Bought by Diva (6-1) It was a solid penultimate for trainer Stacey Viands of Parisian Diva fame and the post could increase her chances of graduating here. #6 Hurricane Partner (3-1) she’s been second in each of the last two and runner-up four times in 20 previous attempts for trainer Linda Dollinger-Stehr and the maiden of her career could be about to take the diploma as favourite. #4 Promoted (4-1) he was second two behind coach David Walters and deserves respect at this spot.
