No.2 Switch to the Lead was up against it last time out here. Now Leparoux rides and finds softer foes today. No.5 Sultry Season exits our HTW list off a resounding win first out. 2-5

Race 2

Sir John Gosden doesn’t bring in No.3 Snow King across the ocean for a vacation but for a win and he is the key in this race with No.9 Jump for Kitten, No.10 Den’s Legacy and NO.12 Mico Margarita. 3 WITH 9-10-12

Race 3

Trainer Wesley Ward is in town loaded and he sends out No.3 Politicallycorrect the one to beat in here. No.7 Sir Bond will be the main danger. 3-7 ( use both in the pick five)

Race 4

THE 1 MILLION BC JUVENILE TURF

No.8 Balance the Books is one of two Chad Brown runners in here. This colt has won two of this three starts all on the grass with a narrow loss in the other race. No.9 Noble Tune is his stablemate and he has won both of his starts and both on the grass with ease. No.10 Joha has 3 wins two seconds and a third from six starts with a win and a second on the grass. He will try and take them back to back with Castellano riding. 8-9-10

Race 5

THE 1 MILLION BC FILLY AND MARE SPRINT

No.3 Dust and Diamonds is the key in this race looking for her fourth straight win. Her only concern is that she has never been 7 furlongs. No.9 Groupie Doll is even money on the morning line and looks odds on but will offer little betting value. She is a must use in the picks but we will try and beat her. No.10 Switch who is listed at 12-1 on the morning line will be the price play as she has been working a hole in the wind. 3-9-10

Race 6

THE 1 MILLION BC DIRT MILE

No.3 Jersey Town comes to town off a real nice win in the Grade 2 Kelso. No.5 Fed Biz has home field advantage as he is 2 for 2 here at Anita. No.6 Shackleford is the pro in here with 18 races under his belt and he has two nice works here for Romans. 3-5-6

Race 7

THE 1 MILLION BC TURF SPRINT

Down the hill we go on this very tricky course. No.8 Great Attack gets the connections of Rosario and Ward and will be making a big wide late run. No.9 Bridgetown is a professional turf sprinter but has never been down the hill. No.11 Mizdirection is a perfect 2 for 2 down the hill and has never been out of the money in 11 starts and has 5 wins and 3 seconds in 8 turf starts and at 20/1 on the morning line this filly vs the boys is a must use. No.12 Chosen Miracle will be out winging it on the front at a price. 8-9-11-12

Race 8

THE 2 MILLIION BC JUVENILE

No.3 He’s Had Enough is out of the O’Neil barn and Doug said this colt is better than I’ll Have Another the KD and Preakness winner this year At 20/1 on the morning line we will be betting he is right. No.4 Shanghia Bobby is the undefeated Pletcher colt to beat coming off his big win in the Grade 1 Champagne at Belmont. No.9 Power Broker’s works says go for Baffert and Bejarano. 3-4-9

Exacta box 3-4-9 and win and place 3

Race 9

THE 3 MILLION BC TURF

No.1 Point of Entry has turned into a real grass monster and is the one to beat as he is looking for his sixth straight grass win and his fourth straight Grade 1 win. No.3 St Nicholas Abbey won this race last year and O’Brien has him ready to defend his title but he will need to be at his best to beat Point of Entry. No.4 Treasure Beach will look to upset at the right price. No.7 Little Mike will appreciate the firm course. No.12 Trailblazer had a race over this course and will run huge today. 1-3 with 4-7-12

Tri 1-3 with 1-3-4-7-12

Race 10

1.5 MILLION BC SPRINT

We will be keying on the big closer No.8 Capital Account who will sit back of the very fast speed duel in here and mow them down in the stretch. No.2 Jimmy Creed, No.4 Coil and No.11 Amazomie all exit the same race. 8 with 2-4-8 key exacta and tri.

Race 11

THE 2 MILLION BC MILE

No.1 Mr. Commons gets his 3rd start off the layoff as he has been gearing up for this. No.2 Wise Dan is the one to beat albeit at a short price. No.3 Obviously will be the one to catch. No.5 Animal Kingdom will try and pull it off coming off an 8 month layoff. 1 with 2-3-5

Race 12

THE 5 MILLIION BC CLASSIC

No.2 Flat Out has the right style to win this race at what will be a fare price. No.5 Game On Dude is the one to beat as he is a perfect 5 for 5 here at Anita. No.8 Nonios and No.9 Richard’s Kid both have outside chances at big prices. 2-5 with 8-9
