Race 1

No. 1 Start a Runnin and No. 5 Flip the Coin Jan will both be out winging it on the front end in this mile turf race for $40k claimers. That could set things up for No. 2 Dallas Skyline who comes off the layoff and No. 7 Buckstopper Kit who gets Kent Desormeaux back on today.The last two times he rode this gelding he got the win. 7-2-1-5

Race 2

$16k fillies and mares travel a mile on the main. Iggy Puglisi gets on No. 2 Winner’s Dream who makes her second start off the layoff for Paul Aguirre. This at one time was a good trainer and jockey hookup. No. 5 Empress of Love drops back to her claimed price and near miss one back. No. 6 Road Test just missed in that race same race with Empress of Love. 5-6-2

Race 3

Fillies and mares go sprinting five furlongs on the grass. No. 1 Kentan Road is the speed on the rail with the bug boy J. C. Diaz up for John Sadler, she ran second on this course in her one try last year. No. 2 Rocky Policy gets her second start off the layoff for the upcoming young trainer Andrew Lerner, this mare ran good sprinting on the grass back East last year. No. 7 Point Hope makes her first start in the states and gets Drayden Van Dyke in the irons for Ron Ellis. 1-2-7

Race 4

Optional $62,500 runners travel 1-1/8 on the dirt. No. 4 Two Thirty Five drops on the layoff for trainer Richard Baltas, he is a three time winner on this course. No. 5 Popular Kid is well spotted and will like the longer trip today. No. 6 Surfing Star gets his second start off the layoff and will show all of his early speed with the hard trying Aaron Gryder taking over. 5-6-4

Race 5

THE $100K CRYSTAL WATER AT A MILE ON THE GRASS

No. 4 Brandothebartender rarely runs a bad race, his last work has him on edge. No. 7 The Hunted gets back in with Cal breds, look for better. 4**-7

WIN AND PLACE 4

Race 6

Optional $50k 3yo fillies go six furlongs. No. 6 Tick Tock looks the speed coming off a nice maiden win. No. 2 Rather Nosy had finished first or second in all three of her dirt races. No. 5 True Validity is looking for the hat trick and owns a big time last work, she looks the filly to beat. 5**-2-6

Race 7

Optional $40k runners travel 1-1/8 on the grass. No. 3 Lazzam takes a drop in class and owns a nice last work, the price will be right. No. 4 Red King comes off the win and the Phillip D’Amato claim. 3-4

Race 8

THE $200K GRADE II SANTA MARGARITA AT 1-1/8 FOR FILLIES AND MARES 4YO AND UP

No. 3 La Force comes off the layoff and was running against much stronger last year. Its been a while since the once highly regarded No. 8 Paradise Woods won a race but if Tiger can come back and win we think Paradise has found a great spot to get back in the winner’s circle. 8-3

Race 9

$25k maiden 3yo go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 2 Translucent will show all of his early speed with the drop to this level. No. 6 Dieci looks live first out of the box. 2-6
