Race 1

$50K maidens go 1-1/16. No. 1 Afendi gets the stretchout by Baltas in this his second start. No. 2 Pappou finally gets the needed drop in class after meeting straight maidens in all of his 15 starts, Prat gets the call today. No. 3 Moonlight Blue is very live off the layoff with the bug boy Roman. 1-2-3

Race 2

This one goes 1-1/8 on the grass for 4yo and up. Trainer Phil D’Amato sends out the uncoupled entry of No. 1 Big John B the likely chalk and No. 2 Farhaan who makes his first start for D’Amato and first on the West Coast. 1-2

Race 3

This is a very weak group of $20k maiden 4yo and up runners. No. 1 Tiz Sirius drops in this his second start for Baffert who looks for the win and hopes someone will claim this 4yo colt. No. 4 Zachian is a first time starter who finds little to beat, his works say he is ready to run but his trainer is a horrid 0-28.


Race 4

We will take our shot here and go singling with No. 4 Run Macho Run who is perfectly spotted off the win. 4

Race 5

There is a ton of early speed in this mile turf race for 4yo and up $40k optional claimers so we will use three runners who will be sitting back. No. 6 Poshsky who can sit right off the hot pace and get first run. No. 7 Conquest Superstar who is in from New York and makes his first start on the West Coast. He will need to sit right off the hot pace and No. 10 County Lineman the flat out closer of the race. 6-7-10

Race 6

$12,500 claimers for 4yo and up go a 1-1/16 and we will make a one way call here with No. 3 Over Achiever a six time winner who just squashed a group of $10k runners going a mile. 3***

Race 7

$75k optional 3yo go a 1-1/16 on the main. No. 2 Reach the World a Tapit colt comes off a huge maiden breaker at odds on for Baffert. No. 7 Battle of Midway tried Grade II runners in his last start and now goes two turns for the first time and has top connections. No. 9 Irish Freedom is the other Baffert in the race and he comes off the layoff and a win first out at even money, he will go long for this his second start. 2-7-9

Race 8

Maiden fillies and mares go a mile on the grass we hope. No. 2 Starlite Style is a hanger but a must use, she has finished second in her last three starts. We will key on her with No. 3 Lucky Teroda. No. 7 Tahitian Lagoon and No. 9 My Aunt Tillie, all exits the same race. 2**with 3-7-9

Key exacta and tri key the 2 first and second with 3-7-9
