Race 1

No. 3 Speakers gets her first start off the underrated young trainer Andrew Lerner. We like the fact that Flavien Prat opts to ride on the move up in class. No. 5 Quinnie won here at this mile turf distance one race back.


Race 2

No. 2 Victory Element comes off the 8 month layoff for Bob Baffert. The last time we saw this 4yo colt was back in May of 2018 when he finished second at .90 cents on the dollar. No. 4 Mantaray Island is in from Gulfstream where he showed big early speed in his one start when taking action. He moves from the Todd Pletcher barn to the Doug O’Neill barn and his last two works here were a pip! 4**-2


Race 3

No. 1 Slewgoodtobetrue has run second in both of her starts and now will be stretched out to a mile. No. 5 Bev’s Humor gets a major rider upgrade. No. 7 Claudelle gets her 3rd different jockey in her last four starts. This time Joel Rosario will try and get her home on top for John Sadler. 1-5-7

Race 4

No. 1 Girl Downstairs gets her first start off the $25k Peter Miller claim. No. 3 Miss Boom Boom drops in class in this her second start off the Richard Baltas claim. Rosario gets on for a trainer who hits at .45% second off the claim. No. 6 Peach Cove has done her best racing here winning four times, she has been very consistent of late. 1-3-6 


Race 5

We will take our shot here in the pick five and early pick four and single No. 2 Nice Work who gets a big jockey switch in this his second start after showing speed vs. straight maidens first out of the box on the grass. If able to clear early he will be long gone. 2***


Race 6

No. 4 FAVORITE TRIP looks very live in this spot at what will be a square price as she goes back down the hill. We will key her with No. 2 Sheza Chattykat and No. 9 Gone to Town. 4** with 2-9

Race 7

We will go with the Jerry Hollendorfer runners in this race as he sends out No. 3 Kochees second of the claim and No. 5 Italiano off a good second last out. 3-5

Race 8

No. 4 S Y Sky just missed last out, she loves this track with two wins and two seconds from four starts, bet her to cash. No. 3 Smiling Tigress and No. 5 Show It N Moe It look to have the best shot at the upset.
