3yo maidens go 1-1/8 on the grass and this is a tough way to start the pick five. We will key on a race that several of this 3yo are exiting. No. 1 Tidal Effect finished a closing 5th going a mile on the grass, running on late like he wants to go longer. No. 5 Fibonacci finished second just getting beat by a dwindling neck and owns a big last work. No. 6 Bartlett Hall was the 4th place finisher and No. 9 Concur finished 3rd after grabbing the lead down the lane in his first try on the grass. 5-9-1-6
$16k fillies and mares 4yo and up go a mile on the dirt. No. 3 Lea’s Reward drops and has some good early speed but will need to sit today off the speedy sprinter No. 6 Lucky Student. No. 5 Rosie My Rosie drops after her $25k claim was voided, those are some happy folks as now they can pick her up for $16k, we like the fact that Roman gets on today for Hess. 3-5-6
$10k claimers 4yo and up go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 3 Chromium gets his first start off the Mark Glatt claim and is on a win every other race pattern and this is his win race. No. 4 Full Access drops looking for the win and the dump. Rosario is in town and gets on No. 5 Here and There for Faclone who is having a big meet.
THE $150K DAYTONA GOING DOWN THE HILL
No. 5 Calculator just went wire-to-wire on this course in the $75k Clockers Corner and has back-to-back bullet works since, he is 3 for 3 down the hill. No. 6 Perfectly Majestic was right behind him in the Clockers Corner. No. 7 Stormy Liberal is the stablemate of Calculator and owns 7 wins on this hillside turf course, Rosario rode him one time and that was in his win in the BC sprint at Del Mar. 5-6-7
$30k maiden 3yo fillies go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 2 South Boot Shirley is a first time starter with the hot riding Franco getting the leg up for O’Neill, she is out of the dam Stormy Lamp who has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters. No. 4 Mondaymorningblues gets the ultimate drop from straight maiden races, she will be short. 2-4
More $30k maiden 3yo fillies going 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 8 Condi ran her best race last out when dropped to this level, Tyler Baze will be gunning from the bell, we will take our shot with her in this lackluster field.
8 win and place
$20k claimers 4yo and up travel a mile on the grass. No. 1 Conquest Sabre Cat was over his head last out and is spotted for the win, since we are using Conquest Sabre Cat we will also use No. 4 Red Carpet Cat who ran big the one time he went a mile on the grass. No. 6 For Greater Glory drops back to the distance and level of his win one race back. No. 7 Malko drops into a live spot and will be making his usual late run. 1-4-6-7
Cal bred maiden fillies and mares 3yo and up go six furlongs. No. 2 Get Yourself Home didn’t care for the grass last out, if able to run back to her first start she will be tough. No. 9 Easydoes It Please is a first timer out of the dam Big Easy who has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters, Roman rides for Miyadi. No. 10 Karmic Affinity ran big vs. Judicial first out, bet her to cash. 10**-2-9
Optional $40k fillies and mares 4yo and up go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 7 Life’s Blessings gets her second start off the layoff, she just missed at this level last out and Van Dyke gets on today for Baffert, she will get a chilly stalking trip behind the speed and runaway and hide down the lane. 7*****
THE $70K WISHING WELL GOING DOWN THE HILL FOR FILLIES AND MARES 4YO AND UP
Love it when Kent sticks around missing happy hour and love it more when he rides for his brother Keith and we have it here with No. 2 Miss Southern Miss fresh off a solid win on this course and that last work was a doozy. Mike Smith sticks also on No. 4 Bendable who gets her second try on this course, she was a good second last out in a Grade III last out. No. 5 Samba Inc is in from Argentina and lands in the barn of Bob Baffert and Prat will ride, she had 3 wins and a second from her four starts on the grass.
