Race 1

No. 1 Sinfully gets his second start off the claim and back to the distance of his last win on this turf course. No. 2 Imperative gets his second off the layoff and a major rider upgrade. No. 3 Persuasive Paul gets back to routing and will be the only speed in the race. 1-2-3

Exacta box 1-2-3 and win and place 3

Race 2

We will take our shot and single No. 3 Muchos Besos in the players pick five. He gets Maldo back in the irons and first off the O’Neill claim and third off the layoff, all systems are on go. 3

Race 3

No. 3 Sweet as a Rose is ready and willing to streatch out on the grass and that last work says go! No. 5 Screen Goddess also gets the stretchout on the grass for the Proctor/Stevens connections, she is bred to get the job done. 3-5

Exacta box 3-5 and win and place 5

Race 4

No. 4 Legacy gets the bug boy Vandyke riding for Sadler and the price may be right. No. 6 Tiz Midnight was sent off at 2/1 in her first start and ran 3rd, she can only move forward off of that effort. No. 8 Katie’s Garden is in from Aqueduct and looks very live in here. 4-6-8

Race 5

No. 3 Old Man Lake drops into an action spot. No. 5 Lucky Cotton owns a win and a second from two starts on this 6 furlong turf course. No. 10 Botch will be the price play with Nakatani getting the call, he will get a great trip from this post. 3-5-10

Players pick five

1st 1-2-3

2nd 3

3rd 3-5

4th 4-6-8

5th 3-5-10= $27.00

Race 6

There is lots of early speed in this 30k maiden claimer going 6 furlongs and that could set things up for No. 3 Elegant Trick who gets a turn back to a sprint, she will sit and pounce down the lane. No. 4 Wildcat Janine is a very sneaky looking first time starter. 3-4

Race 7

No. 1 Sensationalize is 1-for-1 on this turf course. No. 4 Level Headed gets her third start off the layoff and Stevens gets back aboard for Proctor. No. 5 Burns Turn comes off a nice win going this 1-1/16 turf distance and fits with these. 1-4-5


6th 3-4

7th 1-4-5

Race 8

No. 7 Cost of Freedom is one tough 10yo old pro who has won over a million dollars, he is back from the Gate in top form. No. 8 Change of Plan can sit or go to the front end. 7-8

Race 9

No. 1 Kochees gets back on the grass and his two grass races make him a contender. No. 2 U S Citizen gets Bejarano back on board and he has done his best running when the two hook up. No. 10 Protocol comes back to town after going to New York and breaking his maiden at the Big A when sent off as the 6/5 chalk. 1-2-10

Race 10

No. 3 Casey’s Clem exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, she comes off a rousing win first out of the box and will love this 7 furlong distance in the 200k Soviet Problem Stakes. No. 4 Global Hottie also comes off a huge win for Baffert at .70 cents on the dollar and is the one to beat albeit at a short price. 3-4

Race 11

No. 5 Moscato Girl exits the same race as Global Hottie who will be the chalk in the Soviet Problem, she ran a distant third and has a fine work since. No. 10 Anniversary Kitty worked like she loves this course going 1:13.1 on the 16th, she is ready to roll first out of the box. 5-10

Pick three

9th 1-2-10
