No. 8 Logan’s Moon is always right there and Hollendorfer looks to have his stable ready for a big meet. 2-6-8

Race 3

Optional $40k claimers go down the hill. No. 2 Green With Eddie worked best of 134 on the 24th, look for a big effort. No. 5 Burning Brightly ran good in his one start in the country and exits a good race as the winner came back to score next out.

Race 5

$16k claimers go six furlongs. No. 1 Rick’s Dream comes off a good win and has hit the board in all three of his races here. No. 5 Make It a Triple is in top form but his races here have not been very good but he is a must use here. No. 7 Hank the Tank drops off the win but has run good in all five of his starts. 1-5-7

Race 7

Maiden 2yo fillies go six furlongs. No. 3 ZZ Tiger is the key player here, we will single in the late pick five and pick four, look for her to take them wire-to-wire, the back up runners are No. 6 Mo See Cal who was bet down to even money first out going a mile on the grass at Del Mar finishing 4th and No. 11 Inland Empire a first-timer with Smith riding for Eurton. 3** with 6-11

Race 9


We say this is a two horse race between No. 3 Retro with Mike Smith riding for Richard Mandella and No. 9 One Fast Broad with Gary Stevens taking over this very consistent filly, the two old men could run one two! 3-9
