Race 1

No. 2 Takeit Tothe Limit is the speed. No. 4 Little Bro Garrett is a first time starter for the hot barn of Mike Puype and No. 6 Zen Zai Sun is a first time starter for trainer D’Amato, he has had back-to-back good works over the course. 2-4-6

Race 2

We have been waiting for almost ten months for the return of No. 2 Tizapalooza who was on our HTW back February, he comes into this race with a solid work pattern and is ready to win, we will bet and single in the players pick five. 2

Win and place 2

Race 3

No. 2 Synnin got his break out win here on the grass on the 9th when Solis got on him and he has the looks of a gelding that is on the beam. No. 3 Silver Torch has some good early speed and is perfectly spotted. 2-3

Race 4

No. 2 Senor Rain gets a drop in class off the Peter Miller claim, Miller looks to want a quick return on his investment. No. 4 Shun looks the one to beast off his two starts here back in August. No. 5 Welcome Home Ryan gets Bejarano so look for better today. 2-4-5

Race 5

No. 3 Baruta has an interesting work pattern and is a must use. No. 4 As Rulers Go has been sprinting on the grass and now will go long, she will like the longer trip. No. 7 Intoxicating Moves will be launching from the back of the pace and if she gets the trip she will run them down late. No. 9 Margot Machance lost by a nostril going this mile turf distance one race back. 3-4-7-9

Race 7

THE $250K SEABISCUIT 

Chris Clement ships in No. 2 Za Approval, he is a must use. No. 4 Mr. Commons has nice back-to-back 7 furlong works and that last work of 1:23.4 has him on edge. No. 8 Tom’s Tribute has 2 wins and 2 seconds from his 4 starts on this course. 2-4-8

Race 8

No. 7 Sooner Than Later has the hook up we love with Iggy riding for Aguirre, this first timer looks very sneaky. No. 10 Increase is the one to beat at this level. 7-10

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

We will opt for the two droppers in here. No. 1 Saint Lemone and No. 3 First Flower who both exit the same race. 1-3

Race 2

This is listed to go 1 mile on the grass and if it does go No. 5 Mission Street ran ok in his first try going long on the green, he will hold better today. No. 6 Karaoke Cat exits he same race and he was just a neck in front of Mission Street on the line. No. 7 Private Joke went wire-to-wire in his last start here on the grass which was his first try on the green. 5-6-7

Race 3

No. 3 Poison Pulpit won at first asking here on the 13th when withstanding pressure on the front end, he will need to do that again today as there is a ton  of early speed in here, he may need to take off the pace today. 3

Race 4

No. 1 Olympic Blue has won 4 of his 5 starts on this turf course. No. 6 Skip Tony is one tough 5yo gelding who always runs his race. 1-6

Race 5

No. 5 Lord Lochinvar ships in from Santa Anita for Hollendorfer and Baze, he looks like a short price winner and a solid single. 5

Race 6

No. 2 Storm Fashion had the misfortune of hooking heads with a hot race horse last out, he gets Baze back and will be very tough in here. No. 6 Blu Jon has hit the board in all four of his turf starts here, he will be launching late. 2-6

Race 7

No. 6 Faster Cat is in top form and beds down in the sneaky barn of Quinn Howey who has won with 3 of his 5 starters here, we will single. 6

Race 8

No. 2 Big Swig has hit the board in all three of his turf starts here but can handle the grass or the synthetic. No. 4 Vibrato Jazz has 2 wins and a second from his three turf starts here and is a play for the grass only. 2-4

Race 9

No. 9 Tanner’s Kitty will be out winging on the front end and may not stop today. No. 10 Audreys Dolly exits the same race and she will try and run down the Kitty. 9-10
