No. 2 Regal Beauty stretches out in this her second start for Bob Baffert, she just missed by a head last out at .80 cents on the dollar.

Race 2

$40k optional 3yo fillies go 5 ½ furlongs on the grass. No. 3 Mosienko ran a good 3rd on this course last out and now Mike Smith will ride. Joel Rosario who rode Mosienko last out opts for No. 4 Secret Square on the turnback for John Sadler, we think one of them will get the money. 3-4

Race 3

$50k starter allowance runners travel 1 1/16 on the main. This field is just loaded with early speed and that will set things up for No. 5 Unbroken Star from off the pace. He will look to turn the tables on No. 2 Challah and No. 6 Zorich who beat him last out. 5**-2-6
