In the opener on the last Saturday night card of November, #1 Dynamic Day (5-2) was solid fourth in first local start back after two tries elsewhere and gets the nod in two-turn event for $5,000 claimers courtesy of favorable inside draw. #3 Elevated Forever (2-1) returns from two outings at Penn National to certainly winnable spot although likely as the tepid choice. #5 Deo Forte (7-2) has been fourth and fifth in two starts since win at Monmouth and could improve here. #6 Goofy Boy (3-1) has been consistent sort all season but looking to end six-month drought in this spot.



In this two-turn event for $5,000 claiming fillies and mares, #2 Spunky Ali Cat (4-1) was good third last out and won three back and seeks to regain winning ways here. #4 Courageous Grave (3-1) makes local debut off series of decent efforts at Delaware Park. #5 Suzysellsseashells (5-2) looks to end three-month skid here as the likely choice for trainer Ronney Brown. #6 Castle of Caylee (6-1) won three back and sports four wins in 11 starts this year and would not be a shocker here.



In this one-turn maiden special weight dash for two-year-old fillies, #8 Jackie The Joker (7-5) was sharp second in local debut for trainer Anthony Farrior and looks poised to graduate as likely odds-on choice here. #6 Time Is Golden (9-2) has been second in each of last two for trainer Stacey Viands of Parisian Diva fame and could forge mild upset here. #1 Enjoy Summer (4-1) makes local debut off two outings against much tougher in New York for trainer Jeff Runco but inside draw could compromise chances. #3 Stacias Ruby (10-1) has been second once and third twice in four previous outings but seeks to atone for latest for trainer Greg Viands.



In this two-turn allowance for older males, #1 Dr Devera’s Way (7-2) arrives off two straight wins at Parx and gets the nod for mild upset despite being idle four months. #2 Black Steel (9-2) has won two of last three against claimers and gets another chance to prove himself at allowance level. #8 Fast Loaded (5-2) has performed well at the level but will look to atone for latest here for trainer Kieron Magee. #5 Cielo Azul (8-1) makes local debut off a series of outings at Indiana Downs and merits respect at a generous price.



In this one-turn maiden special weight for state-bred two-year-old fillies, #6 Noballstwostrikes (7-2) makes career debut off series of solid workouts for trainer Jeff Runco and owner David Raim and looks poised to graduate at first asking. #7 Thunder Kitten (3-1) has been second in each of last two for trainer Javier Contreras and could shed bridesmaid status here as the tepid choice. #5 Remys Gunsmoke (6-1) makes career debut off several solid works for trainer Tim Grams and could forge mild surprise here. #3 Roll Dem Bones has been second twice in stakes outings and merits respect here for trainer Ollie Figgins III.



In this competitive two-turn allowance for state-bred fillies and mares, #7 Door Buster (3-1) has won five of nine and dominated state-bred three-year-old fillies and gets the nod in this spot while tackling older rivals for trainer Ollie Figgins III. #8 Moonlit Shadow (6-1) has enjoyed solid campaign for trainer Tim Grams and full-sister to Moonlit Song could forge mild upset here. #9 Miss Wave (10-1) also has the chance to prevail at a generous price in this spot for trainer Ronney Brown. #6 Boundtobebad (5-2) has been second in each of last four outings and looks to end bridesmaid status here for trainer John A. Casey.



In the feature race on the card and the final stakes on the 2021 calendar at Charles Town, #5 Jungle Beast (5-2) graduated last out and gets the nod in competitive edition of the West Virginia Futurity for trainer Javier Contreras and owner-breeder O’Sullivan Farms. #10 Spectaculo (5-1) was good third in career debut in two-turn maiden special weight for Runco and merits respect despite outside draw. #2 Late In The Game (9-2) was solid second in career debut but will seek to atone for latest for owner-breeder-trainer James W. Casey. #3 Hessica (6-1) has tried stakes foes in two previous outings and filly looks poised to tackle the boys here for owner-breeder-trainer and former jockey Kristy Petty.



In the Saturday night finale, a two-turn event for $4,000 claiming fillies and mares, #2 Fonda Romance (8-1) has been second three times in eight starts this year and could end seasonal bridesmaid status at a generous price here. #6 Polished Copper (3-1) also seeking to end seasonal drought here although likely as tepid post time choice. #10 Mackenzie’s Star (7-2) won three back for Runco and merits respect here despite outside draw. #8 Robthequeen (4-1) was good third in first local start since outings in New Mexico and could be only Colorado-bred winner here this month.
