Race 1

No. 1 A Toast to You has two wins and a second from three starts on the Hollywood turf course. No. 2 Phantom Lover is in top form and won in his only turf try at Santa Anita.

No. 1 Doubledown On Ten drops into a maiden claimer for the first time. No. 5 Stars and Moons just missed the last time he sprinted. No. 6 Congregationalist may be the speed on the drop. 1-5-6

No. 4 Prime Number just ran a good second on this 6 furlong turf course and gives trainer John Sadler his third big contender in the first three races. He has a shot at sweeping the early pick three and he also sends out second time starter No. 7 Broker Brett off the layoff and a real nice 6 furlong work here on the 6th. 2-4-7
