Race 1

No. 5 Tiz Bodacious gets his second start off the layoff, he also gets Tyler Baze back in the irons and he rode Tiz when he broke his maiden. No. 6 Dee Dee’s Legacy also gets his second start off the layoff and the return to the main track will help his chances. 5-6

Race 2

No. 2 Great Home drops out of the straight maiden ranks and gets a turn back in distance, No. 4 Temerity continues his descent as he seeks his proper level, No. 5 Loyal Son also drops in class and exits a key race, No. 7 Oceanor gets his first start off the Doug O’Neill claim and this distance should be perfect. 2-4-5-7

Key Play

Race 3

In this six-horse field No. 5 Yasinisi looks best even though it's been a long time between wins. 5

3rd 5 for $8

Race 4

In a very tough race let's go with No. 2 Halo’s Law who exits a key race and No. 4 Oliver who will go better today in this his second start, both should be good price plays. 2-4

Race 5

No. 1 Stuttart was scratched Wednesday and finds a very easy spot today to get win #2, No. 5 Winky looks very live for trainer Avilia and jockey Berrio. 1-5

Race 6

No. 1 Onetimeatbandcamp looks to have a big shot in this 5 furlong turf sprint and the price will be right. 1

Key Play

$4 double

5th 1-5

6th 1 for $8

Race 7

No. 7 Laddies Poker never really got untracked six days ago when exiting our HTW list, trainer Doug O’Neill wheels him right back, something you rarely see him do so we will take our shot. 7

Key Play

Race 8

In the GR3 Sorrentgo for 2yo fillies we will use No. 1 Well Deserved, No. 6 Octogarian who exits our HTW list and is one of three entered by Doug O’Neill, No. 7 Southern Fireball (O’Neill), No. 9 Necessary Evil (O’Neill) who is fresh off of beating the boys at Hollywood and No. 10 Mi Sueno who is still a maiden but may be the only true closer in the race. 1-6-7-9-10

Race 9

No. 1 Donthaveatizzy was last seen running here at Del Mar last year in his one and only, No. 6 Wicket Mischief has the sneaky connections of Desperado Stables Inc. and Mike Mitchell and his sire Distorted Humor hits at around 16% with his first- time starters. No. 8 Swingin Jim has had his chances but gets a big break in the weights and just may like it here by the ocean. No. 10 Megillah drops into an action spot and gets Espinoza in the irons. 6***-1-8-10
