First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.


First race: 2 p.m.

1 51/2 furlongs, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000
4Milieux R Bowen9/5123
3Megan's Buddy D Lopez5/2117
5Salty Miss D Hoonan3123
1Step and One Half R Richard6117
2Appealing Artie L Camacho-Flores4117

Milieux has never been better than third in 10 starts, but in this weak field she seems a standout. First-time starter Megan’s Buddy doesn’t have to be great to win this race. Salty Miss invades from Northern California, where she was uncompetitive.

2 51/2 furlongs, purse $13,225, 2-year-old, fillies, maiden claiming $25,000
5Queen Sensation D Hoonan5/2117
2Find Your Spot R Bowen2117
3Sometimes a Lady D Lopez7/2117
1K K's Wonderwoman R Richard9/2117
4Truly a Gem E Kubinova4117

Queen Sensation has finished second in three straight races and seems a notch above those who have raced before. First-time starter Find Your Spot has been working out well. Sometimes a Lady has good early speed.

3 6 furlongs, purse $7,875, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $10,000/$8,000
4Stretch Home E Kubinova2118
5Graytful Harbor L Camacho-Flores8/5118
2Parkers Bluff D Hoonan7/2118
1Lots of Prayers M Werner-Hagerty6118
3Dogleg Left J Zunino5118

Stretch Home had a very tough trip in his last race, and he should be tough in this race. Graytful Harbor tries hard every time (five seconds and two thirds in eight starts). Parker’s Bluff finished first in his last race, but was disqualified.

4 6 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500
1Lizzy Lass E Kubinova2123
4Kilauea J Whitaker8/5123
5Pretty Darn Good J Zunino3123
2Chips Indy Salsa M Werner-Hagerty6123
3Come On Cozzene D Hoonan8123

Lizzie Lass is fairly consistent, and her typical race should be good enough against this field. Kilauea is usually in the money. Pretty Darn Good seems to have lost her form, but her races earlier in the meet were good enough to win this.

5 5 furlongs, purse $17,850, 2-year-old, maiden special weight
7City Shadows L Camacho-Flores7/2118
1Can't Get Enough I Enriquez8/5118
6All for Beauty D Lopez5115
2Charlie's Gold J Matias10118
3Fashionisto R Richard6118
4Franklyididitmyway N Chaves10118
5Uptownfreddybrown E Kubinova9/2118

City Shadows couldn’t handle stakes company in his last race, but this field should be more to his liking. Can’t Get Enough was third as the 4-5 favorite in his career debut three weeks ago. First-time starter All for Beauty faces the boys after scratching out of a race Saturday to run in this one.

6 61/2 furlongs, purse $14,375, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $25,000/$22,500
4Edge Forward I Enriquez1121
5Fist Full of Green E Kubinova5/2124
1Brock Says D Lopez7/2124
2Direct Cost J Whitaker12118
3Songandabullet R Richard5118

Edge Forward finished third, but lost by just a neck in his last race. He is improving and seems due to win. Fist Full of Green is tough at this level. Brock Says rarely wins (1 for 16) but he can complete the trifecta.

7 6 furlongs, purse $16,800, 2-year-old, fillies, claiming $40,000/$32,000
5See My Tail Lites E Kubinova2119
3I Absolutely Will N Chaves5/2119
6Seattle Harbor L Camacho-Flores3116
1Simba's Sis R Richard8119
2Point Da Harbor I Enriquez6116
4Parker's Prospect D Lopez6119

See My Tail Lights takes a drop in class after three straight tries in stakes races. I Absolutely Will looked good in breaking his maiden two weeks ago. Seattle Harbor takes a big jump up in class after dominating a group of cheap maidens.

8 61/2 furlongs, purse $22,575, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, AOC $32,000
1Royal Moses J Matias3123
6The Gang and I E Kubinova9/2123
2Kind of Naughty I Enriquez8/5123
3I Am Revenge R Bowen12113
4She's Stella Marie R Richard12119
5Stephanie Plum L Camacho-Flores7/2123
7Lady Vivien D Lopez8123

Royal Moses takes a drop in class after racing in a pair of stakes. The Gang and I is in good form and was claimed for $25,000 out of her last race. Kind of Naughty looks for her fourth straight win.

9 1 mile, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500
4Montelena N Chaves5123
1Get Well J Whitaker7/2123
2Mile High Bunk D Hoonan8/5123
3Roxy Skylar L Camacho-Flores8123
5Ginger Cat D Lopez10123
6Lil Sister Sadie E Kubinova3123

Montelena seems to be rounding into form, and maybe she will like stretching out to a mile. Get Well is usually in the money (13 times in 16 races). Mile High Bank drops in class for her Emerald debut.

BEST BET: Stretch Home.
