Race 1

No. 3 Jet Blue Girl looks like a good bet to start the day; she is moved up one class of her first start by a trainer that hits at almost 30% with this move. No. 8 Miss Celebration exits the same races as Jet Blue Girl and she will be motoring late and could pick up the place money. 3**-8

Key Play

$8 exacta 3-8 for $8

$2 exacta 8-3 for $2

$20 win 3 for $20

Race 2

No. 2 Date With Fate may be along in time if the speed folds, No. 5 Woman Warrior will be part of the early pace and she has the Headley/Solis connections, No. 7 Crystal Empire will sit and try and make one quick run. 2-5-7

Key Play

$4 double

1st 3

2nd 2-5-7 for $12.0

$2 exacta box 2-5-7 for $12

Race 3

Unless one of the first time starters is live in this 32k maiden 2yo 6 furlong sprint, the race will be won by No. 4 Zagora’s Pride, No. 7 Buyer’s Remorse or No. 8 Cardiff Giant. 4-7-8

Key Play

$2 exacta box 4-7-8 for $12

$2 exacta box 8 with 4-7 for $8

Race 4

No. 1 Malibu Win will be out all alone on the front end and will have to be caught; she could get real brave if no one attempts to go with her. No. 4 Good Time Sally gets Bejarano back in the irons and he rode this girl for the maiden breaker. No. 7 Lexlenos has been facing much stronger and may find these to her liking. 1-4-7

Key Play

$2 exacta box 1-4-7 for $12

$2 exacta box 7 with 1-4 for $8

$1 tri 7 with 1-4 with all for $12

Race 5

No. 1 High Note lit up the tote last time out at 25/1; he could come right back with another big effort. No. 6 Yodelady will be making a late run with High Note. 1-6

Key Play

$2 double

4th 1-4-7

5th 1-6 for $12

Race 6

No. 13 Sir Ben is a very interesting colt in this 7 furlong straight maiden race; he was last seen in December at Calder for Todd Pletcher. We will take a little shot with him. 13

Key Play

$10 win and place 13 for $20

Race 7

No. 2 Black Bear Island is by far the class of this race and looks to get a nice prep for the Breeders’ Cup; he may not be cranked up for this race but he can beat these in second gear. No. 5 Mr. Rod will be out winging and could be dangerous on the front end for a piece. 2***-5

Race 8

No. 2 So Behold is a two-time winner on this course; No. 8 Luberon has won on this course and will be sitting pretty turning for home. No. 11 My Friend Luis had a nice prep at Fairplex and now gets a major jockey change to Bejarano; he looks first or second. 11**-2-8

Key Play

$5 exacta box 11 with 2-8 for $20

$1 pick four

5th 1-6

6th 13

7th 2-5

8th 11 for $4
