RACE 1: CLAIMING $5,000 (N/W3L), CHILDREN 4 YEARS AND OLDER, 1 1/16 MILES

1-3-4-6

Yesterday was a great day of racing at Laurel, with more than $4 million under management on a packed card. Back to routine today. Soup Emperor #1 (3/1) He is third on Mike Trombetta’s claim and drops to this level for the first time. He is looking for a rebound from his last start, where he lost all chance after a bad break. #3 Macho Boy (5/1) he has had his chances at this level, but has brisnet figures in the 70s consistently and has good cruising speed. He has struggled on a streak in the last two starts of his. We’ll see if he can keep his composure here. #4 Straight Guy (4/1) he has closed to pick up the pieces in his last few starts and will try to do the same here.

RACE two: CLAIMING $40,000, CHILDREN 3 YEARS OLD, 6 1/2 EDUCATION

3-2-1-5

#3 All for love (2/1) he got up to win at this level last with a nice closing rally and a career high of 81. Look for a repeat for the Jerry Robb/Xavier Perez duo. #2 Gloomy Munni (9/5) he finished second behind Joe two starts back, who finished second in the Private Terms Stakes yesterday. This will be his first attempt in this condition. #1 Free spot (3/1)a stable partner to All For Love, he gets some much-needed trim over the one-mile distance and has plenty of early speed.

RACE 3: CLAIMING $10,000 (N/W2L), CHILDREN 4 YEARS AND OLDER, 7 FURLONGS

3-2-1-7

#3 Triple Titles (2/1) drops from boot optional claim level and is reduced by 1 1/16 miles. He broke the maiden of him on his debut running six furlongs a while back, but hasn’t won since. His starting speed should be more of a weapon here. #2 Freezing Rain (3/1) he ran a career-best 84 on the last out when he opened up a big one-mile lead, but couldn’t get the final eighth and flattened out. He should hit a big hit on the turn. #1 dominant factor (6/1) he improved considerably in his second start against winners at Penn National and should win a share here.

RACE 4: SINGLE CLAIMING $40,000, 4 AND 5 YEARS OLD, FILLIES AND MARES, 5 1/2 FURLONGS

4-3-7-1

#4 Silver Girl (5/2) it has improved with each recent start and is almost certain to set the early pace. We’ll see how far her initial speed can take her. #3 Totally Brave (6/1) she’s running third from the break and made a good move around the corner before flattening out in her last run. We’ll see if she can hold it this time. #7 Killer Start (7/2) he improved five points to a final out of 67 and will probably slow down again.

RACE 5: CLAIMING $10,000 (N/W2L), 4 YEARS OLDER, FILLIES AND MARES, 1 MILE

6-2-4-7

#6 She is all courage (5/2) he ran a great race first at the last break, setting the pace and holding out late. He got a career best 77 from him in that effort. #2 Incontrovertible (7/2) he also has early speed and comes from New York, where he was flat in his first start against winners after coming under pressure for pace. She will expect to get a more moderate tempo here. #9 Frozen Harbor (9/2) he finished in third place, albeit by a distant margin, behind She’s All Courage in his first outing against winners. She egged on the leaders and pulled back in impressive fashion to break the maiden of her two races back.

RACE 6: CLAIMING $10,000, 3 YEARS OLD, FILLIES, 5 1/2 FURLONGS

6-8-1-2

#6 Bright Penny (7/2) coming here for the first time after some mixed performances in Charles Town. He was very impressive in his opening points two races ago. #8 Cougar Assaulter (5/2) returns to Maryland after a brief stay at Gulfstream Park. She has faded after qualifying near the pace in the last few of hers, we’ll see if coming home helps her keep her composure. #1 Heidi T (6/1) she has improved in her recent starts and is one of two here without a loss against winners.

RACE 7: MAIDEN SPECIAL WEIGHT, CHILDREN AGES 4 AND 5, 7 FURLONGS

2-5-6-1

#2 The postman is a flyer (8/5) The most recent line is a bit distracting as he was stopped with a broken rein. If you remove that race, you’ve been running well against these guys lately, though you’ve burned through a lot of money in the process. Today can be a now or never moment. #5 Hack (7/2) He has run an 81 and an 82 in his two dirt races and ran well when he came off a long break in last place. #6 The sky has fire (2/1) He has great figures in his lines but has been unable to maintain the lead after showing speed.

RACE 8: $5,000 STARTER ALLOWANCE, 4 YEARS OLDER, FILLIES AND MARES, 6 FURLONGS

3-6-2-5

#3 Mavilus (9/2) he’s hit the board behind Sammie Sunshine in his last two starts, now he finds an easier field. He can show speed or rate just off the beat. #6 Blue Sky Venezuela (5/2) he easily beat an open claim field with an impressive mark of 78, and similarly won at Penn National last November. #2 Happy Noise (4/1) he eventually broke through with an impressive conditional win claiming last place after several near misses, and has consistently stayed in the 70s of late.

RACE 9: ALLOCATION (N/W1X), 4 YEARS OLDER, FILLIES AND MARES, MD-BRED, 5 1/2 FURLONGS

5-6-1-4

#5 Moonsafe (3/1) he impressively beat a top-tier open course at Penn National two races ago, and was third against a tougher course in this condition. #6 Magical Moon (7/5) she has set the pace and been caught late in her last few starts at this level, and looks quick enough to move into the lead from the outside. #1 Carnage (7/2) she was trapped in the lead on the last out and finished behind Moonsafe and Magical Luna, but she should have an easier time with a better draw.

RACE 10: SINGLE CLAIMING $10,000, 4 AND 5 YEARS OLD, FILLIES AND MARES, 5 1/2 FURLONGS

5-1-2-7

#5 Dixieland Dancer (5/2) he recovered well from a poor second-half break to improve his tally by thirteen points since his debut. She also ran wide open in that place. #1 Some are Nine (8/1) He comes out third from the layoff and will show speed from the inside. #2 Colophanocloud (4/5) he has the best numbers in the race, but a career mark of 0-for-27 makes low odds hard to swallow.
