Race 1

Papa Mendella sends out two runners in this mile turf race. No. 1 Architop who went down the hill in his first start here and No. 2 Mr. Cartagena who was in that same race, a race in which he finished second with Architop just a half length behind him. 1-2

Race 2

No. 2 Paythebank exits our HTW list off a near miss last out on the grass, he will try the dirt for the first time. No. 3 Moe Candy ran big in his second start and first going this mile distance just failing to hold on, he has a nice last work.

Double

1st 1-2

2nd 2-3-4

Race 3

No. 4 The Mad Hungarian drops off the win for Peter Miller but don’t fear as this is a good move for Miller who is trying to win the training title as he hits at .50% dropping off the win. No. 6 Bipartisan comes off the long layoff for Richard Baltas who can hit off the layoff, this one looks sneaky. 4-6

Race 4

No. 1 Roksana exits our HTW list off a hard fought win in her first try going long, she looks to a have upside. No. 6 Majestic Presence is in top form and she broke her maiden going this mile distance. 1-6

No. 1 Jomelo gets his second start off the claim and his last work says he is on go. No. 2 Empty Headed looks the main danger with the hot riding Tyler Baze. 1-2

Race 6

We will go outside in this 6 furlong sprint for $50k maiden fillies and mares using No. 10 Ticaboo who had a troubled trip last out off the layoff, she gets a nice outside post today. No. 11 Minister’sadventure and No. 12 Forbidden Command are both live first time starters for top barns. 10-11-12

No. 5 Katsfashion ran a better than looked race when dropped to this level last out. No. 6 Mothernaturespell ran good for this price tag at Del Mar and has a good work for her first off the layoff. No. 12 Coded Message has been right there in all three of her starts. 2-5-6-12

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 1 Kuuipo is the speed on the rail looking for the hat trick. No. 2 Just After Sunset will try and run her down. 1-2

Race 2

Hollendorfer brings in No. 1 Valley Cat from Santa Anita and drops this 8yo gelding to the bottom looking to dump and get the win. No. 6 Rio Hondo looks will be making a late run while No. 4 My Game will be the controlling speed and could get very brave on an easy lead. 1-4-6

Race 3

No. 2 Grazenette makes his way North and meets much softer. No. 3 Magnificent Shirl has finished second in both of her starts here on the grass. No. 6 Tiz Kissable is 1-for-1 on this grass course. 2-3-6

No. 4 Militant comes off a good win in his first start on this circuit and now will try going long on the grass, we think if the weather is fine can do!

4

Race 6

No. 3 Anointed Waters gets his second start off the Morey claim and David Lopez gets the call with the drop in class. No. 4 Time Jumper gets a turn back in distance and a drop in class, Baze who rode Anointed Waters last out opts for the Time Jumper. No. 8 He’s On His Toes looks to be back on his toes. 3-4-8

Race 7

Tom Proctor who won here with his only shipper brings in No. 1 Unusually Big and he draws the services of Russell the muscle. No. 5 Milton ships in and will be part of the early pace. No. 9 Solomon Bay gets his first try going long and first on the grass but his breeding says yes. 1-5-9

Exacta box 1-5-9 and win and place 1.
