Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

 FOR WEDNESDAY, JULY 30 AT BALMORAL PARK

Best bet: Chillonadirtroad (2nd race)

First Post-7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND, NW 1, 2-YEAR-OLDS, PURSE 4,000:

PN  HORSE (DRIVER)  ODDS  LAST 3

5  DuPage’s A Tam, Leonard  2-1  3 6 1

1  Dali Down, Warren  4-1  5 1 9

4  !Pathologist, Carpenter  9-2  6 6 5

3  Let’s Not Dwell, Seekman  8-1  3 2 x

2  Major Ed, Anderson  6-1  1 3 4

6  Fox Valley Paoli, De Long  8-1  3 3 x

9  Mr Pearl, Smolin  15-1  7 3 x

10  Really Dave, De. Magee  20-1  10 8 7

8  Tourjours, Wilfong  25-1  3 5 x

7  The Dali’s Llama, Hiteman  25-1  5 x x

DUPAGE’S Z TAM bet down but a tough trip took its toll. He could make amends here. DALI DOWN raced improved and shouldn’t be as far back this time. PATHOLOGIST is out of ICF freshmen stakes and into a possible winning spot.

SECOND: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 OR 2 RACES, PURSE $2,900:

9  L-Chillinonadirtroad, De Long  9-5  *1 *2 9

2  L-Arlo Gram, Leonard  9-2  5 3 7

5  !Flight Lifted, Seekman  7-2  8 3 8

1  L-Dave’s Art, Hiteman  6-1  2 8 3

8  L-Bird In Flight, Kennedy  8-1  3 7 9

6  L-Always Believe, De. Magee  12-1  4 5 10

4  Canadian Art, Smolin  20-1  8 5 7

7  L-Park Lane Scooter, Warren  20-1  6 8 7

3  Hope And Change, Curtin  20-1  4 4 x

CHILLINONADIRTROAD won with authority and if he can gain striking position he could zip past this similar field. ARLO GRAM could be racing up closer where this pacer could be a threat this time. FLIGHT LIFTED drops in with a price tag and could find these horses more to his liking.

THIRD: TROT, COND, NW 1 (F & M 2), PURSE $4,000:

3  l-Fox Valley Skylar, Hiteman  5-2  2 2 3

5  Stonebridge Ultimo, De. Magee  4-1  1 6 1

1  Act Of Valor, De Long  3-1  *7 3 2

2  Omygoodness, Leonard  8-1  5 4 8

9  Gumcorner Sue, Carpenter  8-1  3 6 9

6  Pinstripe Player, Seekman  10-1  8 5 1

8  !Blue Swan, Skinner  15-1  8 6 8

10  All Eyes On Her, Wilfong  15-1  5 7 3

7  L-Astonishing, Smolin  20-1  7 5 5

3  Shadylane Princess, Gillespie  20-1  9 7 6

FOX VALLEY SKYLAR trying hard for her elusive first win and could rush past and get it tonight. STONEBRIDGE ULTIMO qualified strong for his 4-year-old bow. Well-bred trotter sold for $75,000 as a yearling. ACT OF VALOR is a good fit if he stays flat this time.

FOURTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1 OE 2 RACES, F & M, PURSE $2,900:

6  Jovanna, Leonard  4-1  7 5 3

4  Megyn Hotspur, Hiteman  3-1  *2 2 3

7  L-BC’s Fancy Dancer, Anderson  7-2  3 *1 2

8  L-This Chick Rocks, Smolin  9-2  3 *2 7

1  L!Sand In My Bikini, Gillespie  10-1  7 3 9

2  L-Sweet Alyssa, Curtin  12-1  5 3 5

3  !Olive All Ways, Carpenter  15-1  5 4 10

5  L-Fancy Pants Gram, Seekman  15-1  4 7 7

9  L-Lil Annie, De Long  15-1  5 5 8

10  L-Sammi’s Song, Warren  15-1  6 8 5

JOVANNA had to be sued through a three-wide third quarter move and was empty in the lane. Maybe the journey will be more favorable. MEGYN HANOVER came close with a great trip and may sprint out and get another. BC’S FANCY DANCER can go out and grab up-clsoe position again where she’s a factor.

FIFTH: PACE, COND, NW 2 OR 3 RACES, F & M, PURSE $5,000:

8  Yanklet Hanover, Leonard  7-2  1 4 1

4  Get The Terror, Seekman  3-1  7 2 3

9  L-Imnotasonofabeach, Anderson  4-1  3 2 2

6  L+Always Talking, De. Magee  8-1  2 6 7

5  Our Miss Special, Leonard  6-1  4 4 2

1  L-Western Cowgirl, De Long  8-1  10 8 2

2  Mattee Royale, Gillespie  12-1  5 6 6

3  Sandcastle Girl, Hiteman  12-1  3 10 4

10  Simplyirressistible, Kennedy  15-1  7 *1 4

7  April May Dune, Smolin  25-1  9 4 2

YANKLET HANOVER shipped-in from Minnesota where she performed well. Filly looks like a capable fit here. GET THE TERROR has been right there when she’s stayed on stride. Filly most be considered. IMNOTASONOFABEACH had a solid effort in a needed start, her first of the year.

SIXTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, F & M, PURSE $3,300:

1  Seconds Later, De. Magee  7-2  5 4 1

6  Meet Me Tonight, Seekman  3-1  *3 *1 2

10  Val’s Way, Leonard  4-1  1 2 *3

9  Joyful Game, De Long  6-1  4 8 *3

2  L+Box You In, Smolin  6-1  1 6 4

3  Susie Dune, Beyer  12-1  2 7 5

7  Ride Sally, Kennedy  15-1  7 9 9

8  L-Bonjour Madam, R. Finn  15-1  9 4 7

4  LL-My Girl Pippa, Anderson  15-1  10 6 3

5  L-Dawn’s Delight, Hiteman  20-1  6 5 7

SECONDS LATER broke before the start in her last start a month ago. Filly fits well here if she doesn’t need the race. MEET ME TONIGHT the logical choice off a series of good tries. She may be an easier trip away from a victory. VAL’S WAY is racing well but tonight she didn’t draw well. Post does help price.

SEVENTH: PACE, CLMG $4,000, PURSE $2,900:

4  L-Jo Jo Spur, Curtin  3-1  2 1 2

9  L-Master Jeeves, Warren  4-1  6 6 6

3  L-Look Ma No Hands, Kennedy  7-2  1 4 4

10  L-Put To The Test, Leonard  9-2  *1 1 4

2  L-Justlivinthedream, Anderson  8-1  4 *6 3

8  L-Music Again, Hiteman  12-1  2 7 5

1  L-Beach’s Nick, De Long  15-1  8 10 9

7  L-Russell L, De. Magee  12-1  3 3 7

6  L-Bell Valley Art, Wilfong  15-1  *5 5 6

5  L-Eagle A Scootin, Seekman  25-1  6 6 8

JO JO SPUR finished in a hurry but had too much ground to try and make up. Moves inside tonight. MASTER JEEVES claimed and shifted over to Balmoral where he now trains. Consider. LOOK MA NO HANDS nicely rated to a front-end win and might sprint out and get another.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, F & M, PURSE $3,600:

8  L-Blue Gem, Herrera  2-1  1 3 1

2  L-Iamlovedbytheking, De Long  4-1  6 6 1

10  L-Babyshoebuyer, Seekman  9-2  7 2 3

3  L+Main Squeese, Anderson  6-1  6 7 3

5  L-Sand Taryn, Beyer  8-1  2 5 7

6  Lover’s Holiday, De. Magee  12-1  5 7 4

1  L-Red Lace, Skivvies, Leonard  15-1  2 6 6

4  L-Ms Sololongbyebye, Hiteman  15-1  9 10 3

9  L-One Loud Ding, Kennedy  15-1  8 4 5

7  L-C J’s Terror, Gregory  20-1  4 7 9

BLUE GEM didn’t have an easy trip and still breezed against a comparable field. IAMLOVEDBYTHEKING has a shot at a fair price if the trip goes his way this time. BABYSHOEBUYER was never in the hunt. Outside again but maybe she can get brought up.

NINTH: PACE, CLMG HANDICAP, $6,000-$8,000, PURSE $4,000:

1  L-Galactic Star, Hiteman  3-1  *1 *4

9  L-Shiswell’s Delight, Wilfong  9-2  7 1 7

6  L-Timewell, De Long  4-1  7 1 3

5  L+Majestic Royale, Kennedy  6-1  *1 2 2

8  L-Western Deal, Leonard  6-1  6 *2 2

10  L-Bell Valley Bill, Warren  8-1  7 3 4

3  L-Ashes N Dust, Smolin  12-1  4 10 4

4  L-Party In The Park, De. Magee  15-1  8 6 1

7  L-Kappy Krunch, Gillespie  15-1  2 8 5

2  L+Heartland Liberty, Curtin  30-1  3 9 4

GALACTIC STAR remains sharp and is likely in line for another up-close trip. SHISWELL’S DELIGHT may be in cheap enough to get the job done, especially if he can end-up with decent striking position. TIMEWELL is back down to where he had success and might again.
