Race 1




Impressive local debut last out for #1 Fully Connected (7-5), who overcame early trouble to prevail for the win-all-the-time duo of Farrior and Bocachica. A clean break will make this one a winner here, though another troubled start could be deadly from the rail… Nothing wrong with that last outing for #6 Payito (5-1), when second behind the red-hot Bull Meechum, winner of three straight… #7 It’s Sizzling Time (8-1) looks to be on the improve… #4 Aw Ite (9-5) may be in a tough spot: the speedster loves to be in front early but may have a hard time getting there with plenty of other speed signed on. If he doesn’t, it may not be his night…

Race 7


How much does #7 Martin Man (7-2) love this three-turn trip at CT? He’s never been worse than third in seven tries with a 3-3-1 ledger. He crushed an allowance field last out, and in his prior 1 1/16-mile race won at this same level… #1 Jayjaydee (9-5) also scored in allowance company last time and owns seven wins at the trip. Do note, though, that Bocachica jumps ship… The speedy #5 Alpha Queue (4-1) will try to take ’em all the way up front but was thrashed by our top choice last out… Bocachica lands on #4 Prota (3-1), who’s run at this starter level six straight, winning once and finishing in the money four other times…
