So begins the long holiday weekend, the gateway to summertime! A little video to get you in the mood…

Quite lovely, that. At any rate, here’s the free side.

Rundown
Belmont 2, 6, 9
Calder 5, 6, 7
Hollypark 3, 4, 6

Disappointingly tame at the Hollypark after dark; the other two look OK.

Pay-side:

Rundown
Woodbine 4, 7, 8
River 7, 8, 9
Arlington 2, 5, 9
Louisiana 2, 5, 9
Churchill 7, 10, 11
Lone Star 1, 4, 8

No turf today in Chicagoland; everything else looks fantastical, with Lone Star especially stellar. (Truly, with a name like Lone Star, what else could it be?)

WMF report: The up-front trips include three two-turn alerts, at Keystone, Prairie and Thistle. Enjoy!

Speed
Arlington 6f
Belmont 6f
Calder 6f
Chas. Town 4½f, 6½f
Emerald 6f
Finger 6f
Indiana 6f
Louisiana 6f
Lincoln 6f
Mountaineer 6f
PennNat 6f
Keystone 6f, 1m
Prairie 6f, 1m
Thistle 6f, 1m

Rally
Golden Gate 1 1/16m (T)
Woodbine 1 1/16m

Nocturnal submission: Tonight, it’s all about the three P’s. …Over at PennNat in the ninth (scheduled post time 9:17 p.m. EDT / 6:17 PDT), you might need darts or tea leaves, or maybe even darts thrown at the tea leaves. At any rate, #3 Thanks to Ron and #6 Trash to Treasure stand mild upset chances. …In the sixth at Presque (7:35 p.m. EDT / 4:35 p.m. PDT), #1 Runaway Diva and #4 Magic Tune can box the morning-line fave out of the perfector. …Finally, to the Prairie for the Race 9 finale (9:03 p.m. EDT / 6:03 p.m. PDT). In it, #1 Airtight may have an alibi for winning, while #2 Buggs Pride offers a sensible save opportunity. …

Bye-bye for now.
