Race 1

We get a huge field of six runners (before scratches) to start the pick five. No. 2 Wilannamoon took some action in her one start here on the 3rd, she will go much better today in this lackluster field of six. No. 4 Two Steps of Glory comes back in 7 days, she was sent off at 7/5 in her last start and looks the one to beat. 2-4

Race 2

No. 2 Moscato Girl will try and take this group of fillies and mares wire-to-wire. Maldonado will be gunning from the bell and he is having a solid meet. No. 6 Sweetrayofsunshine drops in class and will be right on the tail of the Moscato Girl. 2-6

No. 6 Dustin’s Passion finally gets a start after sitting out ten months. He is in from Oaklawn Park via the Fairgrounds and Churchill Downs, he drops into a very easy spot.

Race 5

We will go inside out in this $8k five furlong claimer using No. 1 Sir Barclay who has a win and a second from his two starts here and No. 10 Antinanco who has been routing and now drops and goes five furlongs, he will be flying late. 1-10
