Race 1

No. 3 Rak City may like the turn back in distance from going a mile on the grass to this downhill race. No. 4 Conquest Smartee has run some good ones down the hill and the drop to this level just may get him home today. No. 5 Tequila Blanco exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play and is the barnmate of Smartee. No. 9 Kopitar just missed last out down the hill and he gets his second start off the Sadler claim, he is the speed on the outside. No. 11 Saratoga Morning drops and gets a shot at this downhill turf course after back-to-back runs going a mile on the grass and he had the Brothers D connections. 5 with 3-4-9-11

Race 2

No. 5 Love a Honeybadger gets her second start off the long layoff, she will hold better today, we see her going wire-to-wire off the big last work. 5**

Race 3

No. 2 Glorious Crown was claimed last out by Jacobson for $50k and he brings him back in this $20k maiden claimer, he wants the win and the claim to cut his losses. No. 4 Borg gets the ultimate drop in class from straight maiden races. 4****-2

Race 4

No. 1 Super Patriot just did not like the off track last out, she gets back on the grass and will try and take these fillies wire-to-wire.

Race 5


Iron horse No. 3 Hoppertunity just keeps earning checks and will be very tough in this spot, bet him to cash. 3

Race 6

No. 1 Dia de Pago comes off the layoff for Cerin and looks very live going a mile, he was last seen facing Bolt d’Oro. No. 6 Ax Man just has not lived up to his hype but finds a good spot. No. 7 Call West won first out for Baffert and is the stablemate of the Ax Man. 1-6-7

Race 7

No. 10 Skelton Pass won on this course last out when exiting our HTW list, he finds a good spot and a great post to earn back-to-back wins, he has hit the board in all five of his downhill turf runs. 10


Race 8

No. 3 Adventurous is in top form for this level and trainer Black has him spotted for the win. No. 5 Lambo Luxx is on a win every other race pattern and this is his win race. No. 6 Omdurman just missed by a nose last out, he gets his first start off the claim and we like G Franco on today. No. 8 Mesa Sky gets his second start off the claim and will go better today. 3-5-6-8

Race 9

No. 2 Little Bit Lovely gets her first start off the Hollendorfer claim and he drops her off the 48 day layoff, not good but her last work says she will be a player and she does like this course. No. 7 Joyable gets Kent D in a rare ride for Dallas Keen, look for a big effort today and the price will be enjoyable. 7***-2
