First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.
First race: 6:45 p.m.
Ginger Cat’s best races have been at this distance. Jo B With Thee is the most consistent of a weak group. Donna Sha Lei Lei ran the best race of her life in her last start, finishing second, but she is 0 for 13.
SCRATCHED: Bootrando Twinkle.
Alta’s Forever has early speed, giving her a slight edge in a very weak field. Gold Trick and Point Da Harbor have each finished in the money in two of three races.
SCRATCHED: Count Trevor.
Parkers Bluff was third as the 13-10 favorite in his last race while breaking from the No. 10 post. Simba’s Roar had a tough trip in his last race and continues to drop down in class. Dead Eye will be rallying late.
Send Silver might like the cutback in distance and there is a lot of early speed in this race to set up his late charge. Just Zoom Will Do drops in class and may have the most early speed. War Wizard is usually in the money.
Sweet Nellie Brown won her last route race. Sweet Saga won a stakes race at this distance two years ago. Just Have’n Fun usually finishes in the money.
Whistle Cat might improve in his second start at a mile, finishing third a couple of weeks ago in his first attempt. Risky Road has won his only start at this distance. Southern Solution has won three of five starts at Emerald this year.
Have’n a Wild Time returns to her best distance. Famous Jessica is in good form. Zippin E is great at this distance.
BEST BET: Parkers Bluff.
