First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.

Saturday

First race: 2 p.m.

1 870 yards, purse $4,400, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $5,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Cascade Dynamite L Lopez7/2125 3Seventy East D Hoonan2125 2Fast Intention J Matias5/2125 4The Bien's Gift E Kubinova4125 5He's a Goblin L Camacho-Flores6125 6Junos Last Cat M Werner-Hagerty10125

Cascade Dynamite is in great form and has a good chance with a good break from the inside post position. Seventy East beat the top pick two races ago. Fast Intention has won both of his races at Emerald Downs.

2 31/2 furlongs, purse $3,600, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Rf Pistol Pete L Lopez2125 4Fly Just Fly L Gonzalez3125 6Hannibal Lector L Camacho-Flores7/2125 2Mr Speedygonzalez J Zunino12123 3Ba Snowbound Chick C Doll8125 5Mr Easy Okie M Werner-Hagerty6125 7Royal Star Max J Rosales6125

Rf Pistol Pete was an impressive winner here in his last start. Fly Just Fly won 10 days ago in her first race after a 9½-month layoff. Hannibal Lector, an 11-year-old gelding, has been first or second in 36 of 73 career starts.

3 6 furlongs, purse $6,725, 3-year-old, maiden claiming $7,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 2Whiskeyonthehouse J Gutierrez4/5122 1Chevron Flying J Matias7/2122 4Tichit E Kubinova10122 3Bootrando Walks J Zunino10122 5Everydayimhustlin J Whitaker8122 6Big Black Cat R Bowen9/2122

Whiskeyonthehouse was overmatched against winners in his last race, but should be tough with a shorter distance and a return to the maiden ranks. Chevron Flying finished third in his career debut last month despite getting off to a bad start. Tichit was decent last year as a 2-year-old but hasn’t shown much this year.

4 11/16 miles, purse $4,400, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 9First Last Chance J Zunino5/2124 3Spending J Whitaker7/212410Crescent Bar J Gutierrez3124 1Spiker E Kubinova15124 2Lookin At Gold J Matias10124 4Laachem D Lopez20124 5Tahoe's Prize L Camacho-Flores15118 6James C Doll8124 7Asummerprospect M Werner-Hagerty15124 8Gilmore D Hoonan12118

First Last Chance was running in stakes races here last year and now drops to the bottom class level. Spending finally won in his 10th career start, and he looked good doing it. Crescent Bar will be heavily bet, but he was a disappointing third in his last race as the 11-10 favorite.

5 61/2 furlongs, purse $17,850, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden optional claiming $30,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 7Grab Ahold I Enriquez8/5117 1Liberty Lake J Gutierrez8123 6Lady Rosberg R Bowen3117 2She's Stella Marie L Camacho-Flores10123 3Appealing Artie D Hoonan8114 4Kamilche Gold E Kubinova10114 5I Am Revenge D Lopez4117

Grab Ahold was third as the 13-10 favorite in his career debut two weeks ago and can take a step forward today. Liberty Lake has been in the money in seven of 11 career starts. Lady Rosberg makes her career debut for trainer Tom Wenzel, who has a great record with first-time starters.

6 1 mile, purse $13,750, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $17,500/$15,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt.4Touch the Sun I Enriquez3124 2Dare Me Devil R Bowen5/2120 5Wasserman J Whitaker41171Wowie Maui E Kubinova8117 3Saddleranch D Lopez9/2120 6Ugottabcatty J Gutierrez5120

SCRATCHED: Havin a Good Day.

Touch the Sun drops in class to the level he won at two races ago. Dare Me Devil rarely runs a bad race. Wasserman will be rallying late.

7 61/2 furlongs, purse $18,900, 3-year-olds and up, AOC $25,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 3Kooky Saluki R Bowen9/5124 2I Keep Saying E Kubinova8/5124 4Belt J Gutierrez5/2118 1Johnski I Enriquez9/2124

SCRATCHED: Memphis Beach, Taylors Deal.

Kooky Saluki has been racing in stakes races so this is a big drop in class. I Keep Saying has finished first in three straight races. Belt is a 3-year-old taking on some tough older horses, but he has enough talent to be competitive against this group.

8 61/2 furlongs, purse $21,000, 3-year-olds and up, AOC $40,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Polish Dollar I Enriquez2124 2Rocky's Quest J Gutierrez8/5124 5Camp Granada D Lopez5/2124 3Gatling Gun R Bowen10121 4Assessment J Whitaker6121

Polish Dollar has a great record at this distance and loves to win. Rocky’s Quest also has a great chance. Camp Granada will likely be leading early.

9 6 furlongs, purse $18,900, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, AOC $32,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Cielator L Camacho-Flores5/2123 5Royal Moses J Matias6123 3Perfect Pie J Whitaker10123 2Carrabelle Harbor I Enriquez6123 4River of Aces E Kubinova9/2123 6The Gang and I N Chaves12123 7Lady Vivien D Lopez5123 8Seventyprcentcocoa J Gutierrez61239Sis's Sis R Bowen8123

SCRATCHED: Ms P K Blue.

Cielator hasn’t raced since September but this lightly raced mare is talented and her trainer, Junior Coffey, is good with horses coming off long layoffs. Give her a slight nod in a very competitive field. Royal Moses has finished second eight times in 14 career starts. Perfect Pie rarely finishes out of the money.

10 1 mile, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 4Jo B With Thee J Whitaker2123 2On Line Sweetie R Bowen7/2123 3Supersymmetry J Matias4117 1Come On Cozzene M Hardison15118 5Corla N Chaves6117 6Kant Catch Jayden E Kubinova12123 7Silly Streak C Doll9/2123

Jo B With Thee has finished second twice at this distance and has a good shot if she doesn’t get into a speed duel in a race loaded with early speed. On Line Sweetie is still a maiden after 23 starts, but she will be rallying late. Supersymmetry might improve in her second try at this distance.

BEST BET: Touch the Sun.
