Race 1

No. 2 Capes Hot Rocket has speed and drops two levels. No. 3 Awesome Anywhere gets Roman riding for Hess, Roman who will be losing his bug soon is trying to win another riding title. No. 5 Sawbuck, exits the same race as Capes Hot Rocket. 2-3-5

Race 2

Maidens 4yo and up go a flat mile on the dirt and this looks as easy as 1-2. No. 1 Momma’s Baby Boy comes off a good second last out and Prat will get a chilly rail trip. No. 2 Surfside Sunset comes off the layoff for team Hess and Kent D, he exits a key race. 1-2

Race 3

$16k claimers 4yo and up go six furlongs. No. 2 Next Speaker gets Bejarano and is a very hard hitting 8yo gelding with 48 starts and 12 wins. No. 3 Here and There is in from New York for Falcone who has been sending out live runners. No. 5 Airfoil is in top form and the one to beat again. 5**-2-3

Race 4

$32k claimers 4yo and up go down the hill. No. 6 Taima the Hawk gets Van Dyke and owns a win on this course. No. 7 My Man Chuckles gets the big confident move up in class off the Baltas claim, Prat gets on today and this guy also owns a win going down the hill. No. 8 Exotic Ghost also won down the hill and is a good fit here and the price will be juicy. 6-7-8

Race 5

$25k claimers 4yo and up go six furlongs. There is a lot of early speed in here so we will use two runners that will be making late runs at the tiring speed. No. 3 Beantown Boys and No. 8 Classico take the best price of the two and use both in the pick five. 3-8


Race 6

$25k fillies and mares 4yo and up go the tough distance of 7 furlongs. No. 2 C. C. Zipp should be legged up as she gets off the grass, she will try and take them wire-to-wire but her 1 for 15 record is a worry to say the least but the drop to this level and her speed says ok. No. 8 Fly Far Away has a nice last work and will like the long sprint, she will be the girl who will try and run down the Zipster. 2-8

Race 7

Fillies and mares go 1-1/8 on the grass. No. 7 The Tulip exits our HTW list and is the main player here, she was a fast closing 4th in her first in the US last out, she gets the good turf rider Van Dyked and will love this longer distance. We will key on her with No. 6 Sasini who exits the same race and No. 11 Causeforcommotion who also exits the race but is stuck on the also list. 7**-6-11

Win and place 7

Race 8
