Race 1

No. 7 Sekhmet’s Revenge gets her second start off the layoff, Prat will ride for Baltas. He will sit chilly right behind the pace, her last work has her ready to fire a big shot. No. 9 Peach Cove comes off a good second and Van Dyke sticks. 7-9

Race 2

No. 5 Pleasant d’Oro is the one to beat in this maiden race, he comes in here with a string of good works and Prat will try to take down the early double. No. 1 Pitino and No. 4 Justin’s Quest both will be the main danger. 5-1-4

Race 3

No. 3 Mucho Unusual was well bet in her first start vs. $100k 2yo fillies in the Generous Portion at Del Mar, she will be short here. No. 7 Sedamar looks very sneaky first out for Mick Ruis off a big last work. 3-7

No. 2 K P’s Smokin gets back on the dirt and that is her game. No. 6 Jabber Now exits our HTW list off a win from post one at Los Al. No. 7 Belle Monte is the filly to beat on the drop for Peter Miller. 7**-2-6

Race 5

This $30k maiden 2yo race call for the all button but we will try and get it down to just three runners. No. 8 Divine Dharma who the big question mark filly in from Emerald Downs for Sadler. No. 9 Frisky Fox a first timer for Desormeaux with Saul Arias riding and No. 12 Thanks the likely chalk on the drop. 


Race 6

No. 1 Gato Del Oro just missed last out at this level and now Franco gets the call for Baltas. No. 2 Shivermetimbers gets Mike Smith back off a big last work. No. 6 Ike Walker is in top form and a must use. 


Race 7

We will use two runners exiting the same race: No. 5 Worthy Turk who just missed finishing second a dwindling head behind the winner and No. 7 Souter the 3rd place finisher who gets Van Dyke today. 5-7


Race 8

We need to go five deep here using No. 1 Smokin B on the drop, No. 6 Thefourfortyfourth on the drop, No. 8 Bartlett Hall off his good second last out first at this level, No. 11 For the Hustle the speed and No. 13 Pulpit’s Dirty Red also with speed. 1-6-8-11-13
