First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.
First race: 6:45 p.m.
|1 1 mile, purse $6,300, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500|
|3||Koala Beach||R Richard||5/2||120|
|4||Win Photos Will Do||A Sanguinetti||3||120|
|5||Memphis Mobster||J Gutierrez||2||124|
|1||El Gran Bebe||D Lopez||9/2||124|
|2||Havin a Good Day||D Hoonan||4||124|
Koala Beach drops in class and is in great form. Win Photos Will Do looks for his third straight win. Memphis Mobster won easily in his last race, but he’s not real consistent and he could regress.
|2 6 furlongs, purse $9,350, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $7,500|
|2||Dare Me Devil||I Enriquez||7/5||124|
|4||Havanna Red||A Sanguinetti||3||124|
|1||He's a Cruiser||L Camacho-Flores||4||124|
|3||Mo's Flashy Date||J Gutierrez||7/2||120|
Dare Me Devil plunges in class, which is a bit of a concern, but he should be too good for this group. Havanna Red drops in class as well and will be tough at this level. He’s a Cruiser has never been out of the money in six races at this distance.
|3 1 mile, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000|
|5||Ginger Cat||D Lopez||5/2||123|
|1||Jo B With Thee||J Whitaker||5||123|
|2||Aurora Sunshine||C Doll||15||117|
|4||Impressa Vanessa||A Sanguinetti||6||117|
|6||On Line Sweetie||J Zunino||10||123|
Benatar plunges in class to a good spot, but the trainer has yet to record a top-two finish in 14 starts at the meet. Ginger Cat finished first in her last race, but was disqualified for interference in the stretch. Jo B With Thee can get into the trifecta.
|4 1 mile, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500|
|3||Harbor Wind||D Hoonan||9/2||124|
|2||It's Our Pleasure||J Whitaker||5/2||124|
|1||Bebe Chrissy||J Matias||15||124|
|5||Full Effect||A Sanguinetti||5||124|
|6||La Capitana||D Lopez||8||124|
Harbor Wind will try to lead from gate to wire in a race where he might get an easy lead. It’s Our Pleasure looked great while winning by 4½ lengths in his last race. Spending is in great form, but might get a wide trip from the outside post.
|5 6 furlongs, purse $7,450, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $7,500|
|2||Midnight Maggie||D Hoonan||5/2||117|
|1||Valid Vixen Queen||I Enriquez||2||117|
|3||Foxie Moose||J Zunino||8/1||117|
|4||Silly Streak||C Doll||9/2||123|
|5||I'm Shootin High||N Chaves||8/1||123|
Midnight Maggie cuts back in distance, which might help her. Valid Vixen Queen will try to atone for losing as the favorite in her last race. Chromatose has finished third 10 times in 18 career starts.
|6 1 mile, purse $12,700, 3-year-old, claiming $15,000/$12,500|
|1||Risky Road||A Sanguinetti||2||118|
|5||Tale Spinner||I Enriquez||9/5||118|
|3||Barton Hill||D Lopez||9/2||118|
|2||Credit Line||E Kubinova||5||118|
|4||Big Question||J Gutierrez||4||118|
Risky Road’s two best speed ratings are in his two races at this distance. Tale Spinner has been racing OK on the turf af Turf Paradise in Phoenix. He fits well with this group if he can handle the transition to dirt. Barton Hill is in good form.
|7 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,675, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500|
|6||He's All Heart||L Camacho-Flores||10||124|
|2||Slew the Cat||I Enriquez||5/2||124|
|1||Camp Pendleton||A Sanguinetti||7/2||124|
|4||Chu and I||J Gutierrez||3||124|
|5||Bad Boy K||J Whitaker||12||124|
|7||Timely Note||D Lopez||6||124|
|8||Making Fire||D Hoonan||6||124|
He’s All Heart predictably faded when setting a scorching pace in his last race. He has a chance to pull off an upset with the cutback in distance. Slew the Cat will likely be the favorite. He has won two straight races and has never finished out of the money in 11 career starts. Camp Pendleton tries hard almost every time.
Best bet: Risky Road
