Race 1

Maiden 2yo go a mile on the grass. No. 7 Inscom exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, bet him to cash. No. 3 Jungle Warfare gets his first try on the grass and he should love it, he has been bet like a good thing in his last three races and Mike Smith will try and take him wire-to-wire on this hard speed favoring turf course. 3-7

Race 2

2yo maidens go a mile for a $30k price tag. No. 1 On the Right seems to run good every other race and this is his good race on the drop and first as a gelding, No. 9 Zippy Groom gets off the grass and drops in with maiden claimers and gets Roman. 1-9


1st 3-7

2nd 1-9

Race 3

No. 1 California Clone looks very live off the layoff, he’s good in all three of his stars as a 2yo and that last work says he is on go. No. 5 Family Code is a three time winner on this course and gets a big jock upgrade. 1-5

Race 4

2yo $30k maidens go a mile. No. 3 Davka drops and we like Van Dyke riding for Miller as Roman who rode this one last out opts for No. 9 Craft Brew who also drops for Cerin who is having a big meet winning at 32%. 3-9

Race 5

Optional $40k fillies and mares go a 1-1/4 on the grass. No. 3 Lucy De is in tip top form and just missed at this distance the one time she went this far. No. 5 Shazara exits our HTW list. No. 8 Bombilate will be on or near the early pace from the bell and will get first jump. 3-5-8

Pick five

5th 3-5-8 (.50 cent pick five cost $24.00).

Race 6

Maiden 2yo fillies go six furlongs and the key player here is No. 9 Dream Tree a first timer for Baffert who cost $750k. When BB is series about winning first out he works his maidens back to back five furlongs and this filly has those two last works. No. 7 Tea for Tam and No. 11 Costa Mia look the main danger. 9****-7-11

Race 7

In this little handicap race at a mile on the dirt No. 2 Dukes Up looks like a solid claim by Bonde and fits here. No. 6 Dadtaughtmewell will sit right off the hot pace and get first jump. No. 10 Dream Police comes off a huge last win. 2-6-10

Race 8

Maidens go down the hill and No. 10 Avalanche will be tough to beat here and is our key, he has been down the hill two times just missing both times. No. 2 Impression ran good going five furlongs on the Del Mar grass and may like this hard turf course. No. 8 Starting Bloc looks live in his first start off a good last work and Prat riding. No. 9 Zipman looks to get a piece of the pie. 10***-2-8-9

Key exacta box 10 with 2-8-9
