Race 1

Optional $40k claimers for fillies and mares 4yo and up going down the hill. We will use three girls exiting the same race: No. 2 Tizanillusion who almost took them wire-to-wire. No. 4 Lightning Dove who beat Tiz by a half length and No. 5 Beau Square the 3rd place finisher by a half length. 2-4-5

Race 2

$50k maiden claimers go seven furlongs. No. 2 Captivate drops from straight maiden races and gets the hot riding Van Dyke. No. 7 Goodwillambassador also drops and gets a big break in the weight with the bug boy Ceballos riding for D’Amato. 2-7

Race 3

$6,250 claimers fillies and mares 4yo and up go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 6 Not too Shiny has seen better days as she drops for $25k races. No. 7 Southern Treasure won both of her starts at this level. Maldo will be gunning. No. 9 Kiss My Lulu was 8/5 vs. Southern Treasure and finished 3rd after battling all the way. 


Race 4

$20k maiden fillies and mares go six furlongs. No. 1 California Breeze looks the filly to beat on the drop from $50k and this trainer hits at over .40 percent when dropping two classes. No. 8 Ib Prospecting also drops from $50k, she will go much better at this level. No. 9 Sweet Treat ran a good second when dropped to this level last out. 1**-8-9

Race 5

$50k claimers 4yo and up go down the hill. No. 2 Eddie Haskell has some big time works off the layoff for O’Neill. No. 8 Home Run Kitten will be making his usual big late run. No. 9 Eric the Trojan drops in class and will also be making a late run. 2-8-9

Race 6

$16k claimers 4yo and up travel six furlongs and we will need to go four deep using No. 3 Stringent on the big drop for David Hofmans. No. 8 Bourque who also drops for Mick Ruis. No. 9 Rick’s Dream who has hit the board in all seven of his starts on this course albeit without a win and No. 10 Fire to the Wire who move up off the win. 3-8-9-10

Race 7

Optional $40k runners 4yo and up go 1-1/4 on the dirt. No. 6 Kawara looks the lone speed, if left alone on the front end he could get very brave. No. 4 Kid Charming just miss last out when flying late going 1-1/8, he will love the longer trip. 6-4

Race 8

Maiden 3yo fillies go a mile on the grass. No. 5 Bring On The Band is the key player here and the price will be right as she ships in from Ireland for Paddy Gallagher. She has some good works and gets first time Lasix, all systems are a go with the good turf jock Van Dyke up. No. 4 Party Dancer and No. 6 Rockin Ready look the main danger. 5****-4-6
