4: me smoking (Harr, Scherer)118/6-1

5: Countess of Cairo (Quinonez, Van Winkle)118/7-2

6: Willowmygirl (Wade, Woolley Jr.)118/3-1

LATEST ATTRACTION (1) is bred to be early. His father wins with 26% of two-year-old first-timers. Gets the rail pro and her workouts indicate she has some speed. FACCIA BELLA (2) has a nice streak of practice, including a ball on June 5, in preparation for his career debut. High percentage of Chirinos on board. MO SMOKING (4) is well mannered with only a few works. Could see its better go longer.

2 11⁄16 miles on grass. Fillies and mares. 3 years and over. Optional Starter Caiming: $5,000. Scholarship: $17,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

2: Nofansinthestands (Roman, Campbell)122/6-1

3: Criminal record (Barandela, Asprino)117/8-1

4: Bluegrass Stars (Lopez, Asprino)122/9-2

5: She has the power (Hernandez, Rhône)122/3-1

6: Happy Happy Happy (Wade, Hernandez)122/7-2

CRIMINAL RECORD (3) will be loose on the leash and dare them to pick her up. Got away a bit last but still held third and fell in class. STARS OF BLUEGRASS (4) is Asprino’s “other” trainee with the top pick. Might try to sit right next to stable mate and wear him out late. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY (6) usually closes on the grass but not much pace here to accommodate his preferred running style.

3 6 stages. Open. 3 years and over. Request: $5,000. Scholarship: $11,500.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

1: Flip the Switch (Hernandez, Litfin)124/3-1

2: Irish Tuff (Quinonez, Padilla) 124/5-1

3: Apartments of poverty (Chirinos, Anderson)124/6-1

4: Unvarnished (Fuentes, Broberg)124/2-1

5: You’ll be lucky (Lopez, Belvoir) 124/10-1

6: North Wood (Lara, Rengstorf) 119/8-1

7: Shinboro (Roman, Padilla)119/9-2

NORTHERN WOODS (6) pitched up at the start last losing all chances. Two backs, he contested the lead against better before tiring late. With a good break and an outside position, he could be there in the end at a price. UNEMBELISHED (4) could be alone in the lead but struggled to finish. Maybe a clear lead will make him braver. TURN THE SWITCH (1) also broke badly in the last and barn switches.

4 11⁄16 miles on grass. Open. 3 years and over. Optional starting claim: $5,000. Scholarship: $17,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

1: Shinny (Wade, Diodoro) 124/7-5

2: 30 seconds (Negron, Silva Jr.) 122/5-2

3: Biggest of the Big (Hernandez, Campbell) 122/5-1

4: Bob is all the way (Lopez, Asprino) 122/9-2

5: Seek Refuge (Lara, Eidschun)122/10-1

6: Buxterhooter (Hernandez, Richard) 122/4-1

7: Thorn Hill Cat (Valenzuela, Asprino) 122/6-1

SHINNY (1) simply refuses to lose. Has won eight in a row at Canterbury on all types of surfaces and 12 of 14 overall. Will sit on the rail until it’s time to do his patented late move. THIRTY SECONDS OUT (2) narrowly lost to first pick two behind and could be the controlling speed but must hold back the winning machine. BOB’S ALL IN (4) will need a fast pace in front of him to help with his closing kick.

5 5½ stages. State breeding. Fillies and mares. 3 years and over. Request: $25,000. Scholarship: $16,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

1: Knight’s Honor (Hernandez, Richard)124/4-1

2: Clare Crescent (Wade, Flores)119/10-1

3: Dusty Ford (Lara, Velazquez) 124/5-1

4: Celtics Wildcat (Fuentes, Donlin) 124/12-1

5: Give Them Shade (Negron, Smith)124/15-1

6: I came to shame (Chirinos, Smith)124/15-1

7: Boozin At Bozos (Carter, Riecken) 124/12-1

8: The Champ Kid (Valenzuela, Robertson) 119/6-1

9: Flash flood (Quinonez, Padilla)124/3-1

10: Stone Arch Bridge (Barandela, Scherer)119/9-2

DUSTY FORD (3) appears to be regaining his form after two home starts. There is only one way to go and that is to take an early lead and improve your position. KNIGHT’S HONOR (1) has posted consistent speed numbers that could win this, but the 1-for-20 career high is hard to ignore. FLASH FLOOD (9) has run consistently at this level and likes to hit the board but rarely wins.

6 stadiums 5½. Open. 3 years and over. Request: $4,000. Scholarship: $11,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

1: Sway Road (Bridgmohan, Wong)124/10-1

2: Spendaholic (Lara, Wong) 124/9-2

3: Danz a Rebel (Roman, Bolinger)124/15-1

4: Fender Bender (Harr, Sheehan) 124/8-1

5: Ruxin (Valenzuela, Hanson) 124/8-1

6: King of the Court (Hernandez, Richard)124/7-2

7: Doctor K (Quinonez, Padilla)124/6-1

8: Big League Benny (Chirinos, Rhône) 124/5-2

9: Leo Del Reo (Fuentes, Richard) 124/12-1

BIG LEAGUE BENNY (8) is third in the long layoff and had the rail in both 21 starts. Moves outside, drops in class and passes to Chirinos. RUXIN (5) was compromised off the start last then rushed off which is not his game. Will try to break on alert and secure good position. KING OF THE COURT (6) broke gently in his last square. If he can break through and get involved, he can be there on the wire.

7 1 mile, 70 yards on grass. Open. 3 years and over. Allocation. Scholarship: $31,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

1: Samyaza (Valenzuela, Robertson) 124/10-1

2: Geaux Yoshka (Chirinos, Robertson) 119/12-1

3: Quantum Leap (Roman, Berndt)124/5-1

4: Me B Bubba T (Lopez, Belvoir) 124/15-1

5: Lord Brancusi (Hernandez, Wong) 124/4-1

6: Joker Matt (Fuentes, Martinez) 119/6-1

7: Citrus Berry (Arroyo, Tranquilino)119/15-1

8: Myopic (Wade, Diodoro)124/3-1

9: Mr. Oklahoma City (Bridgmohan, Oberland) 124/15-1

10: King of Kids (Quinonez, Berndt) 119/9-2

11: Pure Rocket (Lopez, Williams) 119/8-1

KING OF THE KIDS (10) is 2 for 2 on the home turf this year. And both wins were pretty easy. Stronger faces today, but with his spectacular toe turn and the extra distance he will be tough. MYOPIC (8) has class back after running against better recently at Keeneland and Churchill. Is high for grass but is 0 for 3 on the surface. LORD BRANCUSI (5) has five straight rankings and impressive speed numbers on grass and synthetic.

8 7½ stadiums on grass. State breeding. Open. 3 years and over. Allocation. Scholarship: $36,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

1: Direct action (Valenzuela, Silva) 119/15-1

2: The Legend of Gabriel (Harr, Donlin Jr.) 124/8-1

3: Bubba Bob (Hernandez, Rengstorf) 124/5-1

4: Tri Spot (Barandela, Backhaus) 119/20-1

5: Don’t Lock Me In (Quinonez, Berndt) 119/8-1

6: Loring Park (Fuentes, Berndt)124/3-1

7: Me Too Harley (Lara, Biehler)124/6-1

8: Brother Harold (Roman, Westermann)119/12-1

9: Skills and Tricks (Wade, McDaniel) 124/15-1

10: Silver Dash (Bridgmohan, Broberg) 124/4-1

11: Saint Charles (Lopez, Biehler)119/10-1

LORING PARK (6) has had a history of snagging when it mattered most but he’s still close. If Fuentes can find a good position, get him to relax and make a late run, he can get past them all. IMA HARLEY TOO (7) has four wins on the Shakopee turf and picked up the latest victory against an open company. If he breaks well, he does not let go of his head of his own free will. GABRIEL’S LEGEND (2) passed from last to first graduate last summer on grass, will try the same tactic.

9 1 thousand. Open. 3 years and over. Request: $4,000. Scholarship: $11,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWeight/Odd

1: Spiritual Mission (Harr, Eidschun)124/12-1

2: Top of the Game (Lopez, Diodoro) 124/2-1

3: Yak (Arroyo, Rarick) 124/8-1

4: Mischievous Mo (Roman, Champs)124/8-1

5: I love my boss (Conning, Hanson)124/5-1

6: I Will Yes (Bridgmohan, Woolley Jr.)124/3-1

7: Alleycat (Hernandez, Wong) 124/7-2

I WILL YEAH (6) goes from grass to dirt and drops out in class. Has tactical speed and an outside post to sit right behind the leaders and ride alongside them late. ALLEYCAT (7) was claimed by Wong twice and quickly won. This victory was on synthetic and made better today. TOP OF THE GAME (2) was claimed by Diodoro last race and they tend to get better for the barn, but it’s somewhat dependent on pace.
