LOS ALAMITOS

Race 1

We tread into uncharted waters today as we start the first ever Los Al thoroughbred meet. If speed is the key No. 3 I’m No Patsy fits the bill as Elvis will have her rolling from the bell and she is on a win every other race pattern. No. 2 Kid Rollins will be rolling turning for home. 2-3

Race 2

Jockey Martin Pedroza who may live this layout gets on first time starter No. 3 Jilly Juice who is stabled here and has been working over the track since April. Trainer Steven Miyadi can strike with a first time starter and he sends out No. 6 Tatum’s Gold who is out of the dam Cherry Gold who has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters. No. 8 Sweet Mz Poppet lost at 3/2 last out and now gets Maldo who will be gunning from the bell. No. 9 Desert Thief has been well bet in her two starts and gets blinkers on today after back-to-back thirds. 3-6-8-9

Double

1st 2-3

2nd 3-6-8-9

Race 3

No. 1 Citizenship comes off more than a year on the shelf for Baffert who looks to have this filly ready to fire a big shot. No. 6 Twenty Six Acts is one of two first time starters for trainer Tom Proctor but is the one we prefer. 1-6

Race 4

No. 4 Dewrag won like a good thing last out at Santa Anita. He moves up but should be able to handle the rise, he will sit right off the hot pace and pounce turning for home. No. 6 Magic Beam gets his first start off the claim and the hot riding Martin Garcia gets the call. 4-6

Race 5

Pedroza gets on the speedy No. 5 Chattering Class for trainer Peter Miller, he is sitting on the maiden breaker at this level. No. 6 Storm the Heavens comes off the layoff for trainer Peter Eurton, he may like it here and the price will be right. No. 12 American Style is caught on the also list but if he draws in we like this first time starters chances. 5-6-12

Race 6

No. 1 Justamitch gets his first start off the Miyadi claim and the easy win at Oaktree at Pleasanton. No. 5 Time for a Hug has been looking for a spot and looks to have found an easy one off the layoff, all must not be well with the huge drop in class. No. 9 Shining Son will get a very fast early pace to make his last run. 1-5-9

Race 7

THE $100K BERTRANDO STAKES

No. 3 Rousing Sermon posted a bullet work for this. No. 7 Tribal Jewel gets his second start off the layoff for Hollendorfer who also trains the Rousing Sermon, he is 2-for-2 at this mile distance. No. 9 Storm Fighter is also 2-for-2 going this mile distance and worked a great 1:23 for 7 furlongs. 3-7-9

Race 8

No. 10 Itsherperogative gets off the grass and moves from straight maidens to $20k maiden claimers in a very bad field. 10

OAK TREE AT PLEASANTON

Race 3

No. 2 Whodoo Pirate has done little wrong in her four lifetime starts. No. 6 Prayer Be Mine looks the one to beat. 2-6

Race 4

No. 3 Lookout Scout looks odds on with these. No. 5 Crestatorre comes off a good win here 13 days ago and is the main danger. 3-5

Race 5
