Race 1

This is a wide open optional $32k claiming race for fillies and mares. No. 1 Starr of Quality looks like a single in the pick five but can she handle the track? She will be overbet but after her its hit the all button in this six horse field or just add No. 4 Bridal Arch and No. 6 Lea’s Reward both of whom have wins here at the meet. 1-4-6 ( all).

Race 2

We will take a shot here and single No. 6 Sally Simpson who gets her first start off the Hess claim and his go to jockey Kent Desormeaux gets the call, Kent has been riding good and this filly just missed here last out at this exact 7 furlong distance. 6

Race 3

We will use three runners in this $20k maiden claimer going 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 3 Majordomo a first-timer with top connections. No. 7 Easy Game who drops and No. 10 My Perfect Gem who was well bet in his one start finishing a good second. 3-7-10

Race 4

Lots of early speed in this mile turf race so we will use two runners that will be sitting chilly off the hot pace. No. 1 Miz Strawberry Dee first off the Baltas claim and back on the grass and No. 10 Summer Lady who drops and turns back to a flat mile on the grass. 1-10

Race 5

Race 7


They go a flat mile in the Harry Brubaker and Baffert sends out No. 6 Cupid who lays over this field if ready, this is a prep for him and he will be way over bet in this race, after him No. 3 Curlin Rules won his last race here and is in good form and Prat sticks. 6-3

Race 8
