First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.
First race: 2 p.m.
|1 6 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500|
|4||Two o'Clock Draw||I Enriquez||2||118|
|5||Kaitlans Song||J Gutierrez||8/5||118|
|3||Run Atom||J Whitaker||8||124|
|1||Slew the Cat||R Richard||5/2||124|
|2||Just Gonna Be||R Bowen||6||124|
Two o’Clock Draw got off to a bad start in his last race and was sixth as the 2-1 favorite. He drops in class and can atone for that loss with a better beginning. Kaitlans Song will be rallying late. Run Atom cuts back in distance after faltering late in two route races.
|2 6 furlongs, purse $5,675, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $4,000|
|5||Hollywood Holly||R Bowen||6/5||117|
|2||Silly Streak||C Doll||3||123|
|3||Tesio's Theory||J Whitaker||15||123|
|4||One Smart Girl||R Richard||9/2||117|
Hollywood Holly should get an early lead. Silly Streak was 2 lengths behind the pick in her last race. Anitewithyou won his only career start three weeks ago.
|3 1 mile, purse $17,850, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden optional claiming $30,000|
|5||Diner's Diva||I Enriquez||7/5||114|
|4||Liberty Lake||J Gutierrez||8/5||120|
|3||I Am Revenge||R Bowen||9/2||114|
Diner’s Diva showed great improvement when trying a route race for the first time two weeks ago, finishing second. Liberty Lake, still looking for her first win in her 15th start, finished right behind the top pick in her last race. Benatar seems a notch below the top two.
|4 51/2 furlongs, purse $17,850, 2-year-old, maiden special weight|
|4||Doc Duffy||I Enriquez||5/2||118|
|1||Can't Get Enough||J Gutierrez||3||118|
|3||Inkey Mooey||R Bowen||9/2||115|
SCRATCHED: Slewbie Doo.
Grindster was no match for the winner in his last race, but he was 4½ lengths ahead of the third-place horse. Doc Duffy was beaten by just a neck in his last race, but that was two months ago. Can’t Get Enough has worked out well for his debut.
|5 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,675, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500|
|5||Defend Liberty||I Enriquez||9/5||124|
|4||Willie the Fox||J Matias||4||124|
|1||Camp Pendleton||J Gutierrez||7/2||124|
|3||Just Say It||R Richard||12||124|
|6||Sovereign Bay||C Doll||20||124|
SCRATCHED: Marvin’s Magic.
Defend Liberty is in great form. Willie the Fox drops in class after a troubled trip. Camp Pendleton cuts back in distance and returns in eight days.
|6 51/2 furlongs, purse $19,950, 2-year-old, Allowance|
|4||Polly Ester Pompom||I Enriquez||3||113|
|3||Dallon's Gold||R Richard||4||116|
|2||Joel N Jill||R Bowen||5||116|
|6||Rosie's Revenge||C Doll||8||113|
Kendini hasn’t been embarrassed in two stakes races and should do well with the drop in class. Polly Ester Pompom was doomed by a poor start in her last race. Dallon’s Gold jumps up in class after crushing maiden claimers in his career debut.
|7 6 furlongs, purse $18,900, 3 and 4-year-olds, fillies, AOC $25,000|
|1||Kind of Naughty||I Enriquez||8/5||123|
|5||Muchas Coronas||J Matias||2||123|
|4||Strange Luck||J Gutierrez||9/2||117|
|2||Tabled With Gold||C Doll||12||117|
|3||Spot On Babe||R Richard||5/2||117|
Kind of Naughty is in great form, as is Muchas Coronas. Each has finished no worse than second in the past three starts. Strange Luck won at this level three races ago.
|8 1 mile, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $5,000|
|1||Stylish Margin||R Richard||6||115|
|6||Eagle Harbor||J Gutierrez||6/5||118|
|2||Mr. Beautiful||I Enriquez||10||118|
|3||The Stolen Way||M Wrner-Hgerty||20||124|
|4||Fashion Master||R Bowen||8||118|
|5||Thirsty for More||J Matias||5||118|
Stylish Margin might appreciate the extra ground in her first route race, but she will have to beat the boys. Eagle Harbor has had his best success at this distance. Shuddle tries a route for the first time can sneak into the trifecta.
BEST BET: Hollywood Holly.
