1 440 yards, purse $4,000, 3-year-olds and up, TrialsPPHorseJockeyLineWt. 4Vodka With Ice C DeAlba5/2124 1Devon Dat Cash K De la Cruz3124 3Shez Pretty Awesome J Samuels4124 2J Mancuso L Gonzalez9/2124 5One Famous Secret J Crispin7/2122 6Eyez On Brimmer T Stillwell8124

Vodka With Ice was sure impressive winning his last race, and he has run fairly well at Emerald. Devon Dat Cash has not raced since last year but has not finished worse than second in four starts at Emerald. Shez Pretty Awesome looks for her fifth straight win.

2 440 yards, purse $4,000, 3-year-olds and up, TrialsPPHorseJockeyLineWt. 3Snowbound Superchick R Camacho7/2124 6Fast Intention L Camacho-Flores10124 1Cm Got Overserved E Gomez3124 2Veyron T Stillwell8124 4First Specialist R Lozano5124 5Chicks Special Angel D Hoonan9/5124 7Catlow Rim T Skaggs10124

Snowbound Superchick is in good form and he has done well at Emerald. Fast Intention gets a much better distance after struggling in his past three races at 870 yards. Cm Got Overserved has won seven of 15 career starts.

3 6 furlongs, purse $5,975, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $4,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Doctor Bruce S. L Camacho-Flores5124 4Advancement J Whitaker12124 5Sharp Focus J Gutierrez4124 2Just Gonna Be R Bowen6124 3Orcas Gold I Enriquez9/2118 6Master's Bluff R Richard3118 7Two o'Clock Draw D Lopez5/2118

Doctor Bruce S. will try to continue the pattern of winning every other race. Advancement plunges in class, and you can throw out his last race because he bled. Sharp Focus continues down the class ladder.

4 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 2Tamarama Beach I Enriquez3117 7Graceful Minou E Kubinova4117 6On Line Sweetie R Bowen10123 1Impressa Vanessa A Sanguinetti9/2117 3Charismatic Hope J Matias8123 4Tattypoo M Hardison20112 5Ginger Cat D Lopez6123 8Top Kat Miss R Richard8117 9Curlew Slew C Doll15117

SCRATCHED: Doll E Popp

Tamarama Beach will try to make amends after finishing fifth, and is one of many who could win this very even and difficult handicapping race. Graceful Minou is still winless after 15 tries, but she has finished in the money in her past three races. On Line Sweetie might be able to get into the trifecta at a good price.

5 51/2 furlongs, purse $8,925, 2-year-olds, maiden claiming $12,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Joel N Jill J Matias7/2118 3Watch for Trevor R Bowen3118 4Troop Ship L Camacho-Flores4118 2Alta's Star R Richard10118 5Stormin Parker A Sanguinetti10118 6Nacho Macho J Gutierrez6118 7Debauch L Lopez15118 8Air Grinder J Zunino15118 9Sorry Pal N Chaves1011810Sunshine in Rio D Lopez10118

Joel N Jill takes a big drop in class but will have to avoid the slow starts that he had in his first two races. Watch for Trevor might improve in his second career start. Troop Ship is an improving horse.

6 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,675, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $3,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 5Dream Caller J Matias15123 2Jacobita J Gutierrez2123 6Grand Baylee D Hoonan9/2123 1Sovereign Bay E Kubinova10123 3Redseasalt I Enriquez3123 4Because of You R Bowen10123 7Its Diva Time J Zunino7/2123

SCRATCHED: Roxy Skylar

Dream Caller has struggled all year after winning three times here in 2012. She drops in class again and she could regain her form against this group. Jacobita looked great winning her last race. Grand Baylee has been first or second in 11 of 19 career starts.

7 61/2 furlongs, purse $9,975, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $12,500/$10,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 4Forin Sea D Lopez5/2118 6Havanna Red J Gutierrez3124 5Jade Road R Bowen7/2124 1Improviso J Matias9/2124 2Credit Line I Enriquez12118 3Financial Officer J Whitaker8118 7Who's Cat Is Dat R Richard5118

Forin Sea plunges in class, but he has to beat older horses. Havanna Red dominated a weaker field in his last race. Jade Road gives a good effort each race.

8 1 mile, purse $14,375, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $25,000/$22,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 3He's Not Bluffin E Kubinova2118 5Brock Says I Enriquez5/2124 4Faster Than Duke D Lopez4121 1Whistle Cat R Bowen3115 2I Was Made for You D Hoonan12118 6Songandabullet R Richard10118

The key here is which of these horses can handle a mile. He’s Not Bluffin was an easy winner in his last race, but struggled in a stakes race in his only try at this distance. Brock Says has finished second in four of his past five races and tries this distance for the first time. Faster than Duke is the only horse in the field to have run in more than one route race.

9 61/2 furlongs, C and G (colts and geldings), purse $50,000, 2-year-olds, WTBOA Lads StakesPPHorseJockeyLineWt. 2Noosito I Enriquez2116 3Kenai King A Sanguinetti9/2116 4He's Zuberrific N Chaves7/2114 1Kendini J Matias15114 5Twentyten R Richard12114 6Nicolas Cajun D Hoonan12116 7Mebossman D Lopez10114 8Del Rio Harbor R Bowen4120

SCRATCHED: Stikine Slough Noosito, a full brother to Emerald Downs great Noosa Beach, was impressive in winning his career debut. Kenai King has a good chance to improve after finishing third in a stakes at 2-1. He’s Zuberrific looked great while dominating maiden claimers in his last race.

10 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,250, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, WCL $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 7Wedge of Gold N Chaves3123 1All the Rage J Matias5/2123 2Have'n a Wild Time R Bowen8123 3Montelena J Zunino15119 4Ms Eagle Eye L Camacho-Flores7/2123 5Sun City I Enriquez4123 6Fantasyville D Hoonan6123

SCRATCHED: A. Lurie Girl

Wedge of Gold won the past two times she raced at this level. All the Rage will try to atone for finishing third as the even-money favorite. Have’n a Wild Time drops in class.
