Race 1

Look for better today from No. 1 Prime Agenda who was squeezed off at the start in his race here on the 3rd, he has a solid work since and Nakatani gets the call today. No. 3 Sudden Rumor exits the same race and will love this 7 furlong distance. Hess and Desormeaux have been having good success here at the meet together and they hook up with the New York shipper No. 6 Pillar of Strength who could end up being the speed. 1-3-6

Race 2

The last two times the Tyler Baze rode for trainer Ted West he got the win and now he gets on No. 2 Gal Has to Like It first off the claim. No. 5 Newfound Gold won his last race here when beating Gal Has to Like It, he was also claimed out of the race and this 7yo gelding ran like he liked this poly surface. 2-5

Race 3

Trainer Scott Rollins can get a first time starter ready to win out of the box and he sends out No. 4 One Hot Note with Maldo gunning from the bell. No. 5 South Texas is out of the dam Harlingen who has dropped 7 winners from 7 starters. No. 6 Libby is out of the dam Striking Proposal who has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters, she has a good last work and Van Dyke gets the call. No. 8 Moonie is out of the dam Moonfest who has dropped 5 winners from 5 starters, look for the best price between these runners. 4-5-6-8

Race 4

No. 1 Run Hide just may be ready to do that in this his third start off the layoff and the move to a mile. No. 7 Volkonsky ran a solid second here on the 1st and gets his first start off the Ted West claim and Bejarano sticks, he has a solid last work here on the 16th, we look for a big run today. 1-7

Race 5

Maiden 2yo fillies go 6 furlongs. Arlington trainer Ingrid Mason brings in second time starter No. 9 Stormy Adieu, she ran a good 3rd showing big early speed in her one race at Arlington. Ingrid is looking for some of that ship and win money and with a purse of $75k plus the .30% more if she wins, this is like a stakes race for her. No. 10 Appealing Lady was sent off at 9/5 in her first start here but never really got untracked from her rail post, the move outside will get her going today. 9-10

Players pick five

1st 1-3-6

2nd 2-5

3rd 4-5-6-8

4th 1-7

5th 9-10

Race 6

No. 2 Q’Viva looks well spotted off he easy maiden win for $50k and she has good back to back works since the win. No. 8 Fly to Freedom has had some success when Van Dyke rode her and he gets back aboard today. No. 10 Bunuska also looks perfectly spotted off the easy maiden win. 2-8-10

Race 7

The go 1-3/8 on the grass. No. 2 Usbek Thunder will try and shoot to the front end and if left alone he could get very brave at a big price unless No. 10 Skip Tony draws in from the also list as he also has good early speed. No. 9 Money Clip just ran second here at this distance and is the one to beat. 9 (2-10)

Race 8

$20k maiden claimers go 6-1/2 furlongs. No. 2 Forest Romance has been well bet in all three of his races. Kent D sticks around and will ride first time starter for trainer Baltas No. 4 Armensky. No. 6 Salt Power gets a major rider upgrade off of his solid last effort and that makes him the one to beat. No. 11 Gospel Music has really burned some serious cash in his nine starts but will need to be used in the exotics. 2-4-6-11

Key exacta and tri using No. 6 with 2-4-11
