THE 150K HOLLYWOOD OAKS

Race 8

THE 50K CALIFORNIA WINE STAKES

There is a ton of early speed in this 6 furlong sprint and that will set it up for No. 4 Let Faith Arise who will sit back and make one run down the lane as will No. 7 Irish Presence. No. 2 Marks Mine may be the quickest of the speed horses and has some blistering works for this. 2-4-7

Race 9

No. 2 Western Roses won in his only start here. No. 8 My T Quick is proven on the fair circuit and he own his only start here. 2-8
