Race 1

No. 3 Golden Chalice is the speed. No. 2 Missing Groom and No. 4 Prospector Alley will both be running late trying to run him down. 2-3-4

Race 2

One way call in this race. No. 4 Mensa Heat finds a real soft group of $8k claimers and this 8yo gelding has won 10 of his 60 lifetime starts and still has some run in those legs. 4

Race 3

No. 2 Take It Easyplease is a first time starter for trainer Steve Miyadi and she is owned by Tommy Town Thoroughbreds and when Miyadi sends out one for them you can bet your money that it is live. No. 4 Line Leader was sent off at even money in her one and only and will be short again, she is the speed. No. 5 Time for Action will offer the betting value but this filly is very live, her dam Action Girl has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters and she has the hot Fernando Perez riding. 3-4-5 

Exacta box 3-4-5

Race 8

We need to go five deep in this race using No. 2 Boozer has 2 wins and 2 seconds from his 4 starts on this course. No. 3 Mal Verde who won at first asking going down the hill and comes off a layoff with some good works. No. 5 Pressure Time who won his last start down the hill and could be the key player here from off the pace. No. 8 Love Rules All finished right behind the Boozer last time out and No. 10 Ashleyluvssugar is still a maiden but looks live for a sharp outfit. 2-3-5-8-10

.10 cent super box 2-3-5-8-10 and win and place 5
