The first of the four NYSS dashes looks like it could be a duel between two very sharp horses that last performed at the Meadowlands Racetrack. The morning line favorite at 5-2 is Hurrikane Shorty (Art Major-Speed Date). Her main rival at 7-2 is All On Top Hanover (Betterthancheddar-Allamerican Apex).
The second NYSS race features Dance Blue (Rock N Roll Heaven-Tessa Hanover), who is owned by Katz, Goldband, and Anderberg while trained by Jimmy Takter and driven by Mark MacDonald. She is the morning line favorite at 5-2. The second choice is Azzeal As It Gets (So Surreal-Vanite Semalu), who is at 7-2. Azzeal is trained by Ake Svandstedt and driven by Jim Marohn Jr.
The third NYSS race will feature Line Dancer (Art Major-Burning Beaches) who is the morning line favourite at 5-2. She is driven by Brett Miller and trained by Tony Hall. The second choice is Solitary (American Ideal-Lonesome Day) who is trained by Ross Croghan and driven by Jim Marohn. Solitary is 7-2 on the morning line.
The fourth NYSS race finds the joint entry of Betterthangraduate (Betterthancheddar-Western Graduate) and Youaremycandygirl (American Ideal-Sweet Lady) as 5-2 on the morning line. Both fillies are trained by Ron Burke. Their main competition looks to be the 7-2 morning line choice of Silk Reed (Rock N Roll Heaven-Fantasy Jet). She is trained by Jean Drolet and will be driven by Tyler Buter.
Post time for the 10-race card at Vernon Downs on Friday is 6:45 p.m.
