This is scheduled to be run down the hill but there is rain in the forecast so keep an eye out for the rain and off the grass. No. 1 Blitzkrieg just won on this course but has some off-track beading also and he gets his first start off the Doug O’Neill claim. No. 6 Falcone also gets his first start off the O’Neill claim and should also like the off track. No. 8 Cats Blame comes off a big win on an off track but also has won two times on this course. 8-1-6
O’Neill has been on a claiming spree as No. 4 Princess Kendra gets her first start off the O’Neill claim. She also loves this track and can win on an off track. No. 5 Sturdy One also likes this track but has little off track appeal on the drop. 4**-5
This is another race set to go down the hill. No. 1 Angel Alessandra ran a good second in her one try on this course but should also be able to run if the rain comes. No. 3 Gallovie is in from over the pond for Richard Baltas but will only be used on the grass. No. 6 Shut It Up comes off a big win last out when breaking her maiden on this course but has some good off-track appeal also. 1-3 (turf only) -6
No. 3 Nice Work comes off a big maiden win for John Sadler and it’s a good sign he puts him in this claim proof spot. He looks the speed of the speed, wire-to-wire we say. 3**
This is set to be run at five furlongs on the grass. No. 6 Anatolian Heat is a grass sprint runner who takes a big drop in class but gets Flavien Prat up for Peter Miller, bet him to cash. 6****
Calif.-bred 50k$ maiden 3yo go six furlongs. No. 4 Fair Challenge ran better than he looked in his first race and now Drayden Van Dyke gets on for Mike Puype. No. 6 John’s Intuition exits the same race and will be a factor if able to run back to his first start. No. 7 Bob’s Sniper also exits the race, he finished second at 55-1.
This is set to go a mile on the grass, several of these are exiting the same race. No. 3 Keep Quiet is the winner. No. 5 Pincheck who was better than he looked at 6th. No. 8 Morse Code who was 4th by 3/4 of a length despite trouble and now Kent Desormeaux gets on for Baltas. And No. 9 Kazan who was 3rd.
8*** with 3-5-9 Key exacta and tri box
No. 2 Bartlett Hall exits our HTW list off a troubled last trip. No. 3 Bitter Ring Home just missed in his last start but Prat sticks. No. 8 Normandy Beach drops and will wake up in this easy spot. No. 10 Paul’s Diva also just missed last out. 2-3-8-9
25k runners 4yo and up look to go down the hill. No. 3 Kris’ Wild Kat is the one to beat if it stays on the grass but he should also be able to handle the off going on the drop down. No. 5 Rinse and Repeat comes off a nice second on this course and gets his first start off the Sadler claim. Sadler also sends out No. 8 Foray off a long layoff. 3**-5-8
CHECK FOR LATE SCRATCHES AND OFF THE GRASS
