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

Sunday

First race: 2 p.m.

1 6 furlongs, purse $8,925, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $12,500/$10,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 3Graytful Harbor L Camacho-Flores4118 2Rough Idea N Chaves5124 1Brother Greg E Kubinova3115 4Mr. Leroy D Lopez8115 5Happy Childhood I Enriquez5/2124 6I Was Made for You D Hoonan7/2118

It has been a tough year for trainer Martin Pimentel, but maybe he can get into the winner’s circle with Graytful Harbor. Rough Idea ran OK in his last start, his first race in 3½ years. Brother Greg has been racing in California and fits well with this group.

2 5 furlongs, purse $13,225, 2-year-olds, maiden claiming $25,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 4Grindster J Gutierrez5/2118 3He's Zuberrific N Chaves3118 7Cantcatchme D Lopez9/2118 1Zoomzoomania E Kubinova4118 2Air Grinder L Camacho-Flores12118 5Stoneman D Hoonan10118 6Dark Heat J Whitaker6118

Grindster scratched out of a race on Saturday to run in this one. He drops in class after finishing third to a horse who returned to win a stakes race. He’s Zuberrific could improve after finishing third at this level in his career debut. Cantcatchme is making his career debut and had a very fast workout on July 14 (fastest of 35 at 4 furlongs).

3 11/16 miles, purse $4,400, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 2Crescent Bar J Gutierrez5/2124 3Big Payday A Sanguinetti8/5124 4Spending J Whitaker3124 1Spiker C Doll15124 5Laachem J Zunino20124 6Diamond Peak D Hoonan10118 7Eagle Butte N Chaves8118

Crescent Bar has a habit of getting close without winning but he looks good against this group. Big Payday has been racing decently in Northern California and plunges in class for his Emerald debut. He will likely be heavily favored. Spending is usually in the money.

4 61/2 furlongs, purse $17,850, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden optional claiming $30,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Lady Rosberg R Bowen3117 4Liberty Lake J Gutierrez5123 8Ms. Sutherland A Sanguinetti9/2120 2Benatar J Zunino12123 3She's Purdee D Hoonan15114 5You Send Me J Whitaker6114 6I Am Revenge D Lopez12117 7Diner's Diva I Enriquez7/2114 9Hetty E Kubinova6114

Lady Rosberg won’t have to improve much in her second career race to win this. Liberty Lake is usually in the money, but is winless in 12 starts. Ms. Sutherland has been in the money in all three of her starts.

5 51/2 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 5Cat On Base J Gutierrez7/2124 3Red Colt Fortyfive J Matias2124 6All My Friends D Lopez5/2124 1Rainier J Whitaker15124 2Newaukum Creek J Zunino20124 4Freedomslastknight D Hoonan5124 7Power Fleet I Enriquez8124 8The Bien's Gift E Kubinova10124

Cat On Base drops in class and might be too fast for these, even though there are other early-speed horses to contend with. Red Colt Fortyfive will be rallying late. All My Friends is in good form.

6 6 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 6War Wizard I Enriquez5/2124 7Bad Boy K J Whitaker4124 5Mo'em Down L Camacho-Flores9/2124 1Davidaaronnathanne D Hoonan6124 2Foolish Chopper R Bowen12124 3Sabe E Kubinova6124 4Cavanagh Bay A Sanguinetti7/2124

War Wizard will try to lead from gate to wire. Bad Boy K is in decent form. Mo’em Down looks for his second straight win.

7 61/2 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 5Sovereign Bay E Kubinova9/5123 6A Courting Venture R Bowen5/2123 8Our Pretty Woman D Hoonan3123 1Sicily Grace C Doll10123 2Angel Unaware D Lopez12123 3Roxy Skylar L Camacho-Flores20123 4Fly Away N Chaves10123 7Mile Easy J Zunino20123

Sovereign Bay drops in class to a proper level. A Courting Venture cuts back in distance after losing by a half-length at a mile. Our Pretty Woman has won three of eight career starts.

8 6 furlongs, purse $18,000, 3-year-olds and up, AOC $20,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 4Belt J Gutierrez3118 2Fist Full of Green E Kubinova5124 3Hello Frankie I Enriquez5/2124 1Edge Forward D Lopez8124 5Dare Me Devil R Bowen7/2124 6Perfect Night J Whitaker10124 7Until You J Matias5124

Belt races against older horses again but is talented enough to win. Fist Full of Green won a similar race in his last start. Hello Frankie hasn’t raced in almost a year, but his form in Southern California indicates he is a threat to win this race.

9 6 furlongs, purse $50,000, 2-year-olds, fillies, Angie C StakesPPHorseJockeyLineWt. 2Chu and You J Gutierrez2119 3Tinkerbelle Tops D Hoonan3119 5Strawberry Dawn L Camacho-Flores5/2119 1Simba's Sis E Kubinova12119 4Decatur Princess R Bowen12117 6Rosie's Revenge R Richard12119 7See My Tail Lites I Enriquez4119

Chu and You looked very good beating maiden claimers in her debut and can handle the step up in class. Jockey Debbie Hoonan sticks with Tinkerbelle Tops and gets off of Strawberry Dawn, who were both impressive winners in their debuts.

10 1 mile, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $5,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 4Firebender D Lopez2124 3Harbor Star J Whitaker9/2118 2Wisest Cat A Sanguinetti7/2124 1Dead Eye L Camacho-Flores8124 5Payaso Grande C Doll12124 6White River Pirate R Bowen8118 7Eagle Harbor E Kubinova4118

Firebender should improve in his second start at Emerald and looks very tough against this field. Harbor Star will try to lead from gate to wire. Wisest Cat is very unlikely to win but can sneak into the trifecta.

BEST BET: Sovereign Bay
