LOS ALAMITOS TB

Race 1

No. 2 Litigation Road is the one to beat as he looks to have found his level after testing much tougher. No. 4 Empowering Force ran good at this mile distance at Santa Anita. 2-4

Race 2

No. 2 Goldilocks Planet woke up in her last start at Del Mar, she has run some good races on the dirt in the past. No. 5 Miss American Pie gets the bug boy Brandon Boulanger and she owns a win over this El Segundo dirt. No. 7 Faith Proof is the big question mark with the big drop in class off the $25k claim and back-to-back wins. 2-5-7

Race 3

There will be a ton of early speed in this 6 furlong sprint and that will set it up for No. 6 Sudden Rumor who gets the very capable Alex Canchari in the irons, he gets off the grass and back to a sprint, all systems on go! No. 7 Echo Zulu and No. 8 Preacher Roe will also be making late runs at the tiring speed.

6*-7-8

Exacta box 6-7-8 and win and place 6

Race 4

In this very bad $50k maiden claimer we will take our shot with a first time starter No. 5 Kalihi Sun who is out of the dam Kalihi Maggie who has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters, Pedroza will be gunning from the bell. 5

Race 5

No. 1 Second City gets his first start off the Diodoro claim, he has a nice last work and will get a cozy rail ride by Fernando Perez. No. 3 Dysprosium is the question mark with the big drop in class. 1-3

Race 6

No. 1 Fascinating has hit the board in 5 of her 6 starts wining over $100k but can’t find the winners circle and has burned a ton of cash, today could be her day. No. 3 Lady Bugatti is the stablemate of Fascinating and she can get this 1 mile trip and she gets Baffert’s main jock. No. 4 Nicegirlsfnishlast gets her first try on the dirt after running six straight on the grass with some success. 1-3-4

Race 7

THE $200K GRADE II BAYAKOA

Only six runners showed up for this and we will take a front runner and a closer, the front runner No. 3 Tiz Midnight has been facing Grade I company and will try and take them wire-to-wire. No. 5 Warren’s Veneda will try and run her down. 3-5

Race 8

No. 3 Kafister has won 6 of his 12 starts including his last two with Bejarano riding and he will ride again today. No. 4 Roundupthelute comes off the long layoff but his works say he is ready, they paid $230k for this Midnight Lute colt. 3-4

Race 9

In this $20k maiden claimer No. 5 Badwater drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and will really turn things around today going a mile on the dirt after two turf routes. No. 9 Beach Fever ran a close 3rd in his one try here and it was at this mile distance. 5-9

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

This is scheduled to go a mile on the grass and if it stays No. 2 Cora Elizabeth looks the one to a beat off her last two turf efforts here. No. 3 Misty Warrior exits the same race and that was her first on this circuit, she will go much better today. 2-3

Race 2

No. 1 Unstopper Topper looks to be a solid single here off his last work and Juan Hernandez sticks, the price should be square. 1

Double 

1st 2-3

2nd 1

Race 3

No. 3 Hula Girl comes off a nice maiden breaker and looks like she can handle the rise in class. No. 6 Walloping Lula is the speed. 3-6

Race 4

Kyle Frey gets back on No. 2 Soldiers Point, he won with this gelding one race back and the drop in class makes him the main player. No. 4 Topper’s Ghost is in from Santa Anita and gets Baze riding for his buddy Hollendorfer. No. 5 Come Away Home is in from Hastings Park and has won here in the past, he is in top form. 2-4-5

Exacta box 2-4-5

Race 5

No. 1 Country Scarlett woke up with the move to the synthetic surface and looks to be sitting on another big race. No. 4 Native Empress will be making a late run and also looks solid in this spot and she may be the better price. 1-4

Double

4th 2-4-5

5th 1-4

Race 6

Jockey Joe Talamo comes to town to ride in the Gold Rush but he gets to test the course on No. 1 Tribal Torch who is a perfect fit in this race. No. 6 Stole My ‘Art looks sneaky off the layoff. 1-6

Race 7

THE $75K GOLD RUSH FOR 2YOS
