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
2Get Well J Whitaker2123
5Come On Cozzene M Hardison20118
4Truly Unusual A Sanguinetti9/5117
1Graceful Minou E Kubinova5/2117
3Mary Jeanene L Camacho-Flores6123
6Truckee Baby J Zunino8123

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
1Dare Me Devil D Lopez3124
3Scat Daddybaby J Gutierrez2118
2Memphis Beach L Camacho-Flores5/2124
4Brock Says I Enriquez7/2124
5Fist Full of Green E Kubinova6124

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
6Mum's Joke R Bowen7/2123
2Agoodlawyer Willdo J Gutierrez8/5117
5Midnight Maggie A Sanguinetti5117
1Chromatose C Doll12123
3Cu At Sunup D Hoonan4123
4Sheza Silver Moon L Camacho-Flores10117
7Anitewithyou N Chaves10117

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
4Memo's Star M Iammarino9/2117
6Our Union I Enriquez5/2117
2Chess Queen D Lopez3117
1Snowflake Rio C Doll15117
3Boca Merits D Hoonan12117
5Sixteen Reasons M Hardison8112
7Tattypoo J Zunino20117
8One Fine Day L Lopez20123
9Aurora Sunshine N Chaves15117
10Step and One Half L Camacho-Flores10117
11Curlew Slew E Kubinova4117

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
2Pete's Glory Girl E Kubinova4123
3Ugotthemoneyhoney I Enriquez3117
1Quack Up L Camacho-Flores2123
4Angel Unaware D Lopez10123
5Sicily Grace M Iammarino20123
6Our Pretty Woman N Chaves10123
7Courtney's Prize J Gutierrez12123
8Montelena J Zunino8123
9Stolen Forum D Hoonan15123

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
3Sweet Sara Brown E Kubinova4123
7Clemens Brook J Gutierrez3119
6Jewel S. I Enriquez7/2119
1Starlight Gem J Matias6119
2I Cee's a Tiger R Richard5/2119
4Cheese Danish D Hoonan12119
5Cat Von Diva J Rosales8119

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
5Winning Machine I Enriquez3119
6Rocky's Quest J Gutierrez2121
2Assessment J Whitaker4119
1Johnski R Richard8119
3Until You J Matias8119
4Saddleranch D Lopez5/2119

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
9Chicks Special Angel D Hoonan7/5124

1Cm Got Overserved M Iammarino10124
2First Specialist R Lozano12124
3Catlow Rim J Zunino20124
4One Famous Secret J Crispin12122
5Eyez On Brimmer T Stillwell12124
6J Mancuso L Gonzalez8124
7Fast Intention L Camacho-Flores15124

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
6Whos On First Aj J Crispin6/5124
4Eyes Movin L Gonzalez8124
9Just a Rumor T Stillwell10124
1Bedas Jumpin Okie M Iammarino10124
2Secret Inferno R Lozano9/2122
3Jody Dat Cash L Camacho-Flores5124
5Unique Sneak J Samuels20124
7Kiss Me G Bye M Arriaga15124
8A Distant Memory D Hoonan15124

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.
