Race 1

In a real puzzler going a flat mile we get $25k fillies and mares. No. 2 La Casadora has won back-to-back races going a mile and now gets another move up in class off the Bill Spawr claim, after her this is wide open. 2

Race 2

We get more fillies and mares going 5-1/2 furlongs for a price tag of $12,500 in another puzzler. No. 1 Myrna Lou can get the job done if the rail is a fair place to be, Scott Stevens is in for the ride for his buddy Molly Pearson. No. 5 Prettyhotprincess ran here on the 16th and now gets a little drop in class and Tyler Baze gets the call. 1-5

Race 3

More fillies and mares, this time they go a mile on the grass for a price tag of $40k. No. 1 Bartiromo is in from New York and lands in the barn of Hess who puts his go to rider up. No. 6 Zanab is wheeled back in five days by Peter Miller who drops her to the original claimed price. No. 9 Dissension has been a popular item at the claim box and now gets her first for O’Neill. 1-6-9

Exacta box 1-6-9

Race 4

No. 1 Dr. Crabby is by the young hot sire J P’s Gusto out of the dam Beatify who has dropped 2 winners from her 2 starters. No. 7 Excite Me has the Hess/Kent D hook up. 1-7

Race 5

No. 1 Fritz Johansen won at this mile distance one race back when Bejarano was in the irons, he gets back on today. No. 2 Gangnam Guy comes off a win on the dirt and can handle the grass. No. 3 Benba has speed and is the price play getting his second start at the meet and second off the layoff. 1-2-3

Race 6

Lots of early zip in this one mile dirt race for maiden fillies and mares so we will use three that will be coming off the pace. No. 2 Arewehavingfunyet who gets off the grass. No. 4 Dad’s Princess who exits the same race and No. 5 Cassandras Chase the stablemate of havingfunyet. 2-4-5

Race 7

They go a 1-1/16 on the grass. No. 3 Play Hard to Get won two races last year on this turf course. No. 4 Power Ped gets some big class relief and looks the one to beat. No. 7 Danas Best is in from Australia for Phil D’Amato and the hot riding Prat gets the call. 3-4-7

Race 8

Talk wide open races well they don’t get any more wide open than this $20k maiden claimer going 6 furlongs so we will play a dime super box using five horses starting with No. 2 Next Book off the layoff. No. 6 Generous Don who drops from straight maidens and gets blinkers on. No. 8 Eagle Rock who drops from a $50k race into this $20k maiden claimer. No. 9 Papa Frank who also drops and he was sent off at .60 cents on the dollar in his one start at Los Al and finally No. 11 Barbary Coast who also drops from straight maidens. If any of these scratch out we will be tossing in the one first time starter No. 12 Herbies Thunder out of the Baltas barn with the bug boy Pena. 2-6-8-9-11 (12 alt) 

.10 cent super box 2-6-8-9-11
