Harness Line and Comments

By Mike Paradise

  FOR SUNDAY, AUGUST 31 AT BALMORAL

Best Bet: Parklane Glitter (5th race)

First Post—7:10 pm

FIRST: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 6, PURSE $3,600:

HORSE (DRIVER)                ODDS  LAST 3

5  L-Rex Passus, Leonard  2-1  *1 9 4

6  L-I’m Real Good, T. Warren  5-2  3 1 *8

1  L-Party In The Park, De Long  6-1  5 3 7

7  L-Cottonland Gem, Husted  8-1  2 6 5

3  L-LD’s Dash, Hiteman  6-1  6 *1 8

4  L-Nitrogen Fuse, De. Magee  8-1  5 7 8

2  Specially Sporty, Krueger  15-1  4 3 4

8  +Box Of Money, Coblentz  15-1  2 5 4

REX PASSUS a game winner when dropped to this class and may repeat. I’M REAL GOOD battled well against the above and may get the best of him this time. PARTY IN THE PARK could get another trip near the front and do more with it this time.

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

4  L-Fox Valley Skylar, Hiteman  3-1  *6 3 1

5  !Chocolate Surprise, Da. Magee  6-2  *7 8 4

10  Omygoodness, Leonard  9-2  2 7 2

2  L-Air Force Vlue, Gillespie  6-1  4 4 3

8  !Rollette, De. Magee  10-1  4 3 8

3  L-Green Acres, Jn. Anderson  12-1  8 4 4

1  L+Just Taurus, Coblentz  12-1  3 3 *3

6  Fox Valley Sahel, De Long  12-1  3 4 *1

9  Gabe Three Chins, Hiteman  15-1  5 7 8

7  L-Astonishing, Beyer  25-1  8 6 7

FOX VALLEY SKYLAR had a wide-mile as the beaten favorite. Regular driver takes back the lines tonight. CHOCOLATE SURPRISE could be a flat mile away from his initial winner’s circle stop. OMYGOODNESS may come on and get into these gimmicks.

THIRD: PACE, COND/CLMG $7,000, NW 1, PURSE $2,700:

2  Isis Ivy, F. Miller  5-2  2 2 2

3  Captain Camper, Leonard  4-1  5 6 4

6  Really Dave, Hiteman  9-2  3 7 10

8  L-Dave’s Art, Wilfong  5-1  5 2 4

4  Flight Lifted, Seekman  6-1  7 4 3

1  Here’s Tootsie, Gehrke  8-1  4 7 6

7  Time Machine, Curtin  10-1  9 4 5

5  Tech Savvy, Da. Magee  12-1  3 5 8

ISIS IVY is in a good spot to end his runner-up role. CAPTAIN CAMPER might come up with a successful big track bow. REALLY DAVE did much better when dropped to this level and shouldn’t be overlooked again.

FOURTH: TROT, COND, NW A (F & M 2), PURSE $4,000:

1  !Jake Quaider, Leonard  7-2  3 2 3

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

3  Vacations Pride, Da. Magee  4-1  *2 8 5

5  Scat Kitty Cat, Smolin  5-1  3 6 *5

2  Ringo The Star, Curtin  8-1  3 4 4

4  ML’s Journey, Coblentz  12-1  6 3 1

6  !Bands Alexis, T. Warren  12-1  5 5 4

7  Pizzalicious, Hiteman  15-1  *5 4 3

9  Jessie’s Potion, De Long  20-1  4 9 4

8  L-Nordic Blitz, De. Magee  20-1  4 8 6

JAKE QUAIDER raced well in both downstate ICF stakes. Fits here but does take on older trotters. ALL EYES ON HER won for fun in her second start on Lasix and could overcome this post tonight. VACATIONS PRIDE is a well-bred 3-year-old who drops down to a winnable situation.

FIFTH: PACE, COND, NW 1, F & M, PURSE $4,000:

1  L-Parklane Glitter, Wilfong  2-1  2 10 2

6  L-Cyber Gal, Da. Magee  4-1  *4 *4 2

8  Fox Valley Taylor, Hiteman  9-2  2 4 4

2  Nitty Gritty, Curtin  8-1  2 5 5

10  L-Eloquence, Anderson  10-1  5 7 3

4  Rockn Legend, De Long  12-1  4 10 3

3  Treat For My Sweet, Smolin  12-1  2 x x

5  Fox Valley Nell, De. Magee  12-1  4 10 2

9  L+Sand In My Bikini, Leonard  15-1  3 6 6

7  +Sweet Cheeks, Husted  20-1  5 7 9

PARKLANE GLITTER had a big effort and improving freshman could be ready to graduate. CYBER GAL could get to the front again and maybe this time not be collared. FOX VALLEY TAYLOR comes off a good try and another might see her end a losing streak.

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

7  Odds On Rolomite, Smolin  7-5  *1 2 2

8  Megyn Hotspur, Hiteman  8-5  *2 *1 *2

5  L-Sammi’s Song, T. Warren  8-1  5 9 8

3  L-A Tangible Lease, Wilfong  8-1  9 7 5

4  L-Western Cowgirl, Krueger  15-1  8 9 6

6  L-Lil Annie, De Long  15-1  9 9 6

1  Big Brown Eyes, De. Magee  15-1  7 8 7

2  L-Kiddie Cam, Husted  15-1  10 5 6

ODDS ON ROLOMITE won nicely at this class a few nights ago and could give us an encore winning performance. MEGYN HOTSPUR is the danger. Mare has been 1 or 2 in all last 5 starts. SAMMI’S SONG was pushed back. She may arrive for a slice of the trifecta.

SEVENTH: PACE, COND, NW $2,000 LAST 5, F & M, PURSE $4,100:

5  L!Lima Calliope, De Long  3-1  8 10 4

4  L-Fox Valley Ruby, Leonard  7-2  *3 2 5

9  L-Boxed Chocolates, Seekman  4-1  5 *10 *1

8  L-Leanmean Normajean, De. Magee  6-1  4 10 8

1  L+Rockin Reba, Smolin  8-1  2 8 7

6  L!Fox Valley Flora, Anderson  8-1  5 1 6

2  +April May Dune, Da. Magee  8-1  *1 2 8

3  L-Dee Dee Sage, Hiteman  15-1  6 4 7

7  L-Arts-Rockstar, Husted  15-1  7 5 5

LIMA CALLIOPE looks well placed to have success in his Balmoral return. FOX VALLEY RUBY has improved with Casey and looks like a major threat tonight. BOXED CHOCOLATES is outside again and will have to improve in his third Lasix start.

EIGHTH: PACE, COND/CLMG $8,000, NW 3 OR 4 RACES, PURSE $3,300:

2  L!Native Lights, R. Warren  3-1  1 7 8

1  Hector B, Curtin  7-2  8 *1 *2

9  L-Wildartiscape, De Long  4-1  2 4 2

8  +Conzo, Da. Magee  9-2  3 3 7

6  Sunset Dreamer, Wilfong  6-1  6 6 1

7  L-Holy McMoses, Hiteman  8-1  8 *3 3

4  L-Always Jimmy Ray, Krueger  12-1  5 7 4

5  Premonition, Husted  15-1  4 8 7

3  Fox Valley Miso, Leonard  30-1  6 7 9

NATIVE LIGHTS looks well placed by his new barn to make it 2-for-2 on the local scene. HECTOR B has speed from the inside to maybe get an up-close winning journey. WILDARTISCAPE is capable if he doesn’t have too much ground to try and make up.

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

5  L-One Jazzy Lady, Da. Magee  7-2  7 11 *4

7  Sea Watcher, De Long  3-1  1 2 1

6  Our Miss Special, T. Warren  9-2  8 3 2

8  Gabby Rei, Leonard  6-1  5 5 2

4  L+Pro Shooter, Husted  8-1  1 3 5

2  L-Get The Terror, Seekman  8-1  4 4 4

10  Sandcastle Girl, Hiteman  10-1  5 1 3

3  L-Perched On Top, Curtin  20-1  8 10 1

9  L-Imnotasonofabeach, Anderson  15-1  7 *3 6

1  Mattee Royale, Gillespie  25-1  10 7 10

ONE JAZZY LADY sheds 10-hole and could be going to the front this time. SEA WATCHER is performing well and could be ahead or maybe right behind the above. OUR MISS SPECIAL shifts back to her favorite track where she’s a possibility.

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

8  Meet Me Tonight, Seekman  3-1  *3 *1 3

6  Seconds Later, Da. Magee  7-2  4 2 7

2  +Brianna Official, De Long  9-2  1 5 4

5  L+Karma Kween, T. Warren  6-1  4 3 *9

9  Lizzabelle, Hiteman  6-1  2 7 7

4  Jovanna, Leonard  8-1  5 6 1

3  L-Box You In, Husted  12-1  4 6 1

1  L-This Chick Rocks, Smolin  15-1  8 7 3

7  L-Dawn’s Delight, Krueger  20-1  8 5 5

10  Be My Escape, Curtin  25-1  9 8 5

MEET ME TONIGHT likely leaves hard again and maybe makes the front in better shape. SECONDS LATER battled the above and could again. Filly is a solid threat. BRIANNA OFFICIAL has a better field to beat tonight but could again offer inviting odds.
