Race 1

This day starts off with a very wide open mile turf race for $32k claimers 4yo and up that have never won three races and we will need to go four deep using No. 3 Kona Dreams the speed who just failed to hang on at this level and distance last out getting nailed on the line by a neck. No. 4 Ky. Colonel who move up off the gutty win last out at this turf distance and owns a nice last work. No. 8 Spitfire exits the same race as Kona and gets blinkers on today and No. 10 Uber Star gets back to the turf distance of his last win one race back. 3-4-8-10

Race 2

We get just five runners lined up for this starter allowance race for fillies and mares. We suggest hitting the all button or take a shot on No. 4 Eternal Endeavour who has the route experience and comes off a huge win last out. 4

Race 3

Cal bred maidens go a mile on the dirt and when Phil D’Amato has two runners entered he usually wins with one of them. He sends out No. 2 Wild Lando with the bug boy Ceballos getting on today and No. 6 Duluth a first timer with Takamo. 2*-6

Race 4

Maiden fillies and mares go 1-1/16 on the dirt. No. 5 Lady Mamba is the key player here as she gets off the grass has great tactical speed and Prat gets back on for Peter Eurton. We will key her with No. 2 Tell Your Mama off a good last work. No. 6 Tequila Sunrise who exits the same race as the Tequila girl and No. 7 Stradella Road on the stretchout. 5 with 2-6-7

Race 5

This is one tough mile $50k maiden claimer to end the last leg of the early pick five. No. 3 Taniko just missed one race back for a $62,500 maiden price tag and then tried straight maidens last out just missing by 1-1/4, he is the one to beat. No. 4 Starting Bloc drops and gets his first try vs. maiden claimers as does No. 10 Tidal Effect. 3-4-10

Race 6

$20k 3yo fillies go six furlongs. There is all front speed in here so we think No. 3 Uno Trouble Maker will sit off the hot pace and pounce turning for home with G. Franco getting on today. No. 8 An Eddie Surprise will also sit and take one run. 3-8

Race 7

We will go singling in this optional $62,500 claimer using No. 6 IRISH FREEDOM who has been facing much better and we like Van Dyke getting on for Baffert and those last two works were a pip! 6

Race 8

$20k maiden 3yo go a mile on the dirt. No. 6 Ministertomyheart will make a late run. No. 8 Dare To Enter just missed last out for a $30k price tag when Bejarano got on, he will ride again today and is the one to beat. No. 9 Studly Perfection will be playing catch me if you can on the big drop down for team Baltas/Ceballos. 8-9-6
