Race 1

 

 

Trainer Bob Baffert has two entered in this 5½ furlong sprint for maiden 2yo fillies, No. 1 May Day Rose a first time starter with his main man Martin Garcia in the irons and No. 2 Royal Ancestry. 1-2

Race 2

 

 

On paper it doesn’t look like anyone can win this race, No. 2 Angle Before us comes off the layoff and had finished second in three straight races, she looks to have found a good spot to launch her late run. No. 3 Irridescent Red has some early speed and takes a needed drop in class. 2-3

2nd 2-3 for $8

Race 3

 

 

No. 3 Fortunate Appeal just did miss by a neck last time out on this track in a 40k maiden claimer and now drops into a 25k maiden claimer as his trainer seeks a win. No. 2 Scorsese ran a good one last time out in his first start for trainer Kathy Walsh and this 7 furlong distance could be perfect for his style. No. 8 Bell Zone gets P Val for his second start, he will be coming late. 2-3-7

Race 4

 

 

No. 1 Free Flying Soul always runs her race and gets the good rail post, No. 4 Sweet August Moon beat Free Flying Soul last time out and these two could be one two once again. 1-4

Race 5

 

 

No. 4 Colgan’s Chip had a race over the turf course and will be tough in this spot and the price will be right. No. 5 Swift Sands is a two time winner on this track and exits the same race as Colgan’s Chip. No. 13 Hey Elvis is the one to beat but he is stuck on the also list. 4-5-(13)

Race 6

 

 

No. 2 Good Brother gets his first start off the Ted West claim and jockey Bejarano will ride, No. 6 Seeuat Sticknste3in gets back to sprinting on the main after a failed attempt on the grass in his first start off the Doug O’Neill claim. 2-6

Race 7

 

 

No. 3 Spot The Salt has some win early breeding, No. 4 Woodmans Luck had a troubled trip in the Graduation Stakes and now is back with maidens and gets the hot Bejarano in the irons. No. 8 Mr. Sierra is out of the Jeff Bonde barn and has some win early breeding. 3-4-8

Race 8

 

 

No. 1 U R All That I Am gets back to a better distance in the Solano Beach, she looks like the main girl in this flat mile on the grass. No. 4 You Lift Me Up is the stablemate of U R All That I Am and trainer Jerry Hollendorfer looks to have a strong twosome in this race and You Lift Me Up won this race last year. 1-4

Race 9

 

 

No. 2 Royal Import may finally get that elusive maiden breaker in this his eleventh start. No. 9 Anga was one of three heads on the line last time out and looks to be sitting on another good race. 2-9
