Emerald Downs entries

First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.
First race: 6:45 p.m.
Get Well gets a slight nod here by default. Her average speed rating is likely good enough to win, but she really hasn’t been close to winning in seven tries this year, never finishing less than 3 lengths behind the winner in seven starts. The rest of the field also seems to lack the winning spirit. Come on Cozzene will likely be the horse to catch, and Zenett was just a head behind the top pick in her last race.
Mojave Secret drops in class after being claimed out of his last race when he finished second. The winner in that race returned to win again on Sunday. Brother Greg drops in class after a poor beginning in his Emerald debut doomed his chances. Goodlookinggeorge was third as the 3-10 favorite in his last race.
Sechura gets a jockey change to the leading rider and drops to a career-low class level while returning to a sprint. Sotally Tober overcame a rough trip to finish second in his debut. House of Hope also has a decent chance.
Crescent Bar can win with an effort like he had two races ago when he was second. Ourshanghaiexpress’stwo best races have been at this distance. Big Payday was second as the even-money favorite in his Emerald debut.
Harbor Wind drops in class, and he might like the cutback in distance. Itsafineredwine has been second in three of his past four races. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Silver Sneakers was very close at the end.
Bartab made a sharp improvement when dropping to this level in her last race, finishing second. Way to Go Lo takes a small jump up in class after her second straight win. Seattle Game seems to have lost her good form, but you have to respect a horse that has won 11 of 24 career starts at Emerald.
Jordans Jem drops in class to a level where she should be tough to beat. Foxie Moose might improve in her second start at Emerald. Hollywood Holly will try to lead from gate to wire.
Best bet: Jordans Jem.
