Other soph-colt pacers are available in The Messenger at Yonkers on Saturday and American-Nationals are in the works at Balmoral on Sunday.
Fall Final Four
(4) Red Star Gilda managed to get the place spot while gaining ground late at 21-1. (6) Cinnamon could win right back after a strong victory that ignored the fact she dueled early to get the lead.
(1) Muzhik Hanover returns after losing as the top choice and from the rail seems a perfect single to make amends.
(5) Cherry Tree Kate disappointed backers but appears tons the best in this poor field.
(3) Misty Waters should not bounce off of a turbo-win effort last out. (8)Red Star Penny could get a better position early and use the brush wasted last week in an early duel.
