The hot Phil D’Amato sends out the uncoupled entry of No. 1 Sensitively the speed on the rail and she has won two of her three starts here and No. 5 Long Hot Summer who comes off the 7 month layoff, gets off the grass and back to a sprint where she won her only start at this distance.

1-5

Race 4

$50k claimers go down the hill. No. 6 Heir of Storm comes off the layoff for Miller, she won sprinting five furlongs on the grass at Del Mar and looks the speed of the speed. No. 8 Clever Royal is the one to beat off those last two works and he exits a tough race going a mile on the grass in his last start. 6-8

Race 5

The last leg of the players pick five is a wide open 5-1/2 furlong $30k maiden claimer for 3yo fillies and the all bottom comes into play but we will get it down to four horses: No. 1 Stir Fry the logical favorite, No. 5 Fiftypercentcotton a live first timer with a nice last work, No. 6 One Smart Cat who showed good early speed in her one start and gets her first start off the Doug O’Neill claim and No. 9 Adrian’s Girl off the little layoff and drop in class. 1-5-6-9 ( all)

Race 6

No. 4 Surfing the Menu exits our HTW list, actually the trainer does, but this mare came off a long layoff and just crushed her field last out nd is a must use right back. No. 5 Secret Chords is very fast and will be hooking up on the front end. No. 7 Stole My ‘Art will try to run the top two down and is the price play. 4-5-7

Race 7

They go a mile on the grass. No. 1 Hijra gets her second off the layoff and looks to be sitting on a smasher. No. 3 Havanna Belle has been facing better at longer distances and the drop makes her a big threat. No. 5 All Star Bub comes off a good win and is the stablemate of Hijra but loses Bejarano. 

1-3-5

Race 8

$30k maiden 3yo fillies go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Spark Plug Katie comes off the layoff for Mullins, she has a nice work and Mullins is high percentage with maiden claimers. No. 2 Goldrushcat has burned some serious cash in her four starts and is the one to beat again. 1-2
