Maidens go down the hill. No. 2 Masterpiece Day is a first-time starter who blasted a bullet work here on the 14th when best of 48, he is a runner. No. 5 Cool Your Jets gets back to a sprint after going a mile on the grass when he was a closing 3rd, Van Dyke fits so look for a big late run. No. 4 Jet Set Ruler makes his first start for Baltas and gets the bug boy Ceballos on and a nice last work. 2-5-4
$16k claimers go 6-1/2 furlongs on the main. No. 2 Madelyn’s Wild Max drops to the level of his last win. No. 3 Junior Gilliam exits our HTW list off a solid try last out, the barn switch is a big concern. No. 4 Gentrified also drops to the level of his last win. 2-3-4
Cal bred maidens go down the hill. No. 5 SIR EDDIE exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play. No. 4 CAPTAIN BUZZKILL exits our HTW list as a $$$ play, we will use both in the picks and make an exacta box 4-5 and a tri key 4-5 with 4-5 with all.
$6,250 claimers go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 3 Pundy comes off a 4 month layoff and gets a big class drop but we like the bug boy Asa Espinoza getting on for Miller. No. 4 Blaze’n Prospector drops a notch and gets his 3rd start off the layoff. No. 6 Omdurman will go better in this shorter field after finishing 3rd last out at this level in a 12 horse field. 3-4-6
$20k maidens go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Captain N. Barron showed good improved early speed and stick last out. No. 10 Going Away Party drops in from straight maiden races and finds a very soft field, after those two anything can happen in this soft field. 1-10
$40k claimers go down the hill, Ocampo gets back on No. 4 Smuggler Union, the one time he rode this gelding it was on this downhill turf course and got the win. No. 5 Closing Time gets back to a sprint and will be making a big late run. No. 8 General Mach Four has run good on this course and owns a big last work. 4-5-8
$30k maiden 3yo fillies go six furlongs. No. 3 Naughty Sophie ran big in her one start and gets the hot riding Prat. No. 4 Tengs Rhythm exits the same race and was even money in the race. No. 5 Takes Two to Tenga is the stablemate of Tengs. 3-4-5
Optional $40k fillies and mares go seven furlongs. No. 4 Libby’s Tail comes off the layoff and was last seen running with some good ones at Belmont, she lands in the barn of Baltas and gets the hot riding Bejarano, we will take our shot and say she is live in this spot and single her in the late pick four. 4***
THE $100K CRYSTAL WATER AT A MILE ON THE GRASS
No. 9 Rye is one tough cookie winning 8 of his 18 starts and comes off of a nice run in the Grade 3 San Juan Capistrano, he can get a mile on the grass. No. 11 Ashleyluvssugar is ditto of Rye winning 10 of 24 starts and is the class of the race, we say one of the two will get the win. 9-11
