Race 4

No. 3 Headache has kept jockey Julien Couton in groceries and he may head to the store once again after this race. No. 4 Self Insured was very unlucky in his last when coming from last to first in a seven wide move to win but had his number taken down in what looked to be a bad decision, he gets doubled jumped in class off the Sadler claim.

Trainer Bob Baffet has three horses entered in this 5½ furlong straight maiden race, we will go with No. 7 Indian Firewater whose sire Indian Charlie hits at around 18% with first time starters and his trainer has been on fire not water.

Race 8

The Del Mar Oaks is one tough nut to crack as most of these fillies have been mainly on the grass. No. 2 Nan has been facing some mighty company, if her will has not been broken she can win at a price. No. 5 Well Monied looks like the one to beat. 2-5

Race 3

This race we will just stick with the Lloyd Mason entry of No. 1 Miss Sought After and No. 1A Formally Yours. Mason looks to be sitting on a big day today so we will string along.

No. 7 Kristen’s Lil Lady has the speed to take this wire-to-wire, No. 8 Logan’s Heat is the x factor. 7-8

Race 5

No. 1 All Flags Flying loves this track with four wins and two thirds from nine starts, No. 3 Remember Seattle will be making a late run, No. 5 Ai Se Va will also be coming late. 1-3-5

Race 6

No. 9 Tiz Us looks to be the only speed, if he gets loose with an easy lead he is gone. No. 10 Alottadar will be stalking in the hope of Tiz fading late. 9-10

Race 7

Trainer Mason has No. 1 Sandton who just may be live at a big price in this race, No. 3 Hetch has speed and is the one to beat. 1-3

Race 8

Trainer Mason has No. 5 Devils Afleet who he gives a big boast in class off the claim, another who could pop at a big price. No. 8 Prairie City Road is the stablemate of Afleet and he will be out winging on the front end. 5-8

Race 9

No. 2 Court Ballado and No. 6 Nantucket Mist look like the main two fillies in this 8k maiden claimer. 2-6
