First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.
First race: 2 p.m.
|1 1 mile, purse $4,400, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500|
|2||Get Well||J Whitaker||2||123|
|5||Come On Cozzene||M Hardison||20||118|
|4||Truly Unusual||A Sanguinetti||9/5||117|
|1||Graceful Minou||E Kubinova||5/2||117|
|3||Mary Jeanene||L Camacho-Flores||6||123|
|6||Truckee Baby||J Zunino||8||123|
Get Well lacks the winning spirit (one win with 11 combined seconds and thirds in 15 starts), but seems the most likely winner in a weak field. Come On Cozzene might get an easy early lead. Truly Unusual races against winners for the first time after winning a bottom-level maiden race.
|2 61/2 furlongs, purse $18,000, 3-year-olds and up, AOC $20,000|
|1||Dare Me Devil||D Lopez||3||124|
|3||Scat Daddybaby||J Gutierrez||2||118|
|2||Memphis Beach||L Camacho-Flores||5/2||124|
|4||Brock Says||I Enriquez||7/2||124|
|5||Fist Full of Green||E Kubinova||6||124|
Dare Me Devil has finished no worse than second in his past six race,s and he was scratched out of a race Saturday to run in this one. Scat Daddybaby should have the early lead and might hang on. Memphis Beach is in great form.
|3 1 mile, purse $7,775, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $7,500|
|6||Mum's Joke||R Bowen||7/2||123|
|2||Agoodlawyer Willdo||J Gutierrez||8/5||117|
|5||Midnight Maggie||A Sanguinetti||5||117|
|3||Cu At Sunup||D Hoonan||4||123|
|4||Sheza Silver Moon||L Camacho-Flores||10||117|
Mum’s Joke faced a tough field for this level in her last race, and two races ago she was second at this distance and level. Agoodlawyer Willdo faces older horses, but she seems to be improving. Midnight Maggie can get into the trifecta.
|4 51/2 furlongs, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000|
|4||Memo's Star||M Iammarino||9/2||117|
|6||Our Union||I Enriquez||5/2||117|
|2||Chess Queen||D Lopez||3||117|
|1||Snowflake Rio||C Doll||15||117|
|3||Boca Merits||D Hoonan||12||117|
|5||Sixteen Reasons||M Hardison||8||112|
|8||One Fine Day||L Lopez||20||123|
|9||Aurora Sunshine||N Chaves||15||117|
|10||Step and One Half||L Camacho-Flores||10||117|
|11||Curlew Slew||E Kubinova||4||117|
Memo’s Star has a good chance to get the early lead and she cuts back in distance, which should help her. Our Union was second in a similar race in her last start. Chess Queen has been third in each of her two races.
|5 51/2 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500|
|2||Pete's Glory Girl||E Kubinova||4||123|
|1||Quack Up||L Camacho-Flores||2||123|
|4||Angel Unaware||D Lopez||10||123|
|5||Sicily Grace||M Iammarino||20||123|
|6||Our Pretty Woman||N Chaves||10||123|
|7||Courtney's Prize||J Gutierrez||12||123|
|9||Stolen Forum||D Hoonan||15||123|
Pete’s Glory Girl has been in the money in 31 of 60 starts at Emerald, and the 7-year-old can rally for a win in this field full of front-runners. Ugotthemoneyhoney looks for her third consecutive win. Quack Up has also won two straight races.
|6 6 furlongs, purse $11,650, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $12,500/$10,000|
|3||Sweet Sara Brown||E Kubinova||4||123|
|7||Clemens Brook||J Gutierrez||3||119|
|6||Jewel S.||I Enriquez||7/2||119|
|1||Starlight Gem||J Matias||6||119|
|2||I Cee's a Tiger||R Richard||5/2||119|
|4||Cheese Danish||D Hoonan||12||119|
|5||Cat Von Diva||J Rosales||8||119|
Sweet Sara Brown takes a drop in class, and she should be tough at this level. Clemens Brook should return to her good form after faltering badly in her first route race. Jewel S. will be rallying late.
|7 1 mile, purse $30,000, 3-year-olds and up, Allowance|
|5||Winning Machine||I Enriquez||3||119|
|6||Rocky's Quest||J Gutierrez||2||121|
|3||Until You||J Matias||8||119|
Winning Machine got stuck with the dreaded No. 12 post in the Longacres Mile. He has a class edge over most of his foes in this race. Rocky’s Quest rarely runs a bad race. Assessment, winner of the 2010 Longacres Mile, is still competitive at age 9.
|8 440 yards, purse $54,000, 3-year-olds and up, Bank of America EmD Championship Challenge|
|9||Chicks Special Angel||D Hoonan||7/5||124|

|8||Snowbound Superchick||R Camacho||6||124|
|1||Cm Got Overserved||M Iammarino||10||124|
|2||First Specialist||R Lozano||12||124|
|3||Catlow Rim||J Zunino||20||124|
|4||One Famous Secret||J Crispin||12||122|
|5||Eyez On Brimmer||T Stillwell||12||124|
|6||J Mancuso||L Gonzalez||8||124|
|7||Fast Intention||L Camacho-Flores||15||124|
Chicks Special Angel has won 10 consecutive races. Vodka With Ice looked good in winning a trial race here two weeks ago. Snowbounder Superchick is in good form, but finished two lengths behind the top pick in his last start.
|9 31/2 furlongs, purse $13,500, 3-year-olds and up|
|6||Whos On First Aj||J Crispin||6/5||124|
|4||Eyes Movin||L Gonzalez||8||124|
|9||Just a Rumor||T Stillwell||10||124|
|1||Bedas Jumpin Okie||M Iammarino||10||124|
|2||Secret Inferno||R Lozano||9/2||122|
|3||Jody Dat Cash||L Camacho-Flores||5||124|
|5||Unique Sneak||J Samuels||20||124|
|7||Kiss Me G Bye||M Arriaga||15||124|
|8||A Distant Memory||D Hoonan||15||124|
Whos On First Aj has won six of his past seven races with the one defeat coming by just a nose. Eyes Movin has been second three times and third once in four starts at Emerald. Just a Rumor also has a decent chance.
BEST BET: Dare Me Devil.
