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


First race: 2 p.m.

1 6 furlongs, purse $17,850, 2-year-old, maiden special weight
4Can't Get Enough I Enriquez2118
2Lita's Kat J Matias6115
5All for Beauty D Lopez5115
1Zoomzoomania G Mitchell7/2118
3Sthenios J Couton5/2118
6Franklyididitmyway N Chaves12118


Can’t Get Enough looks like he might have a bright future after two pretty good races, but he might need to take a step forward to beat first-time starters Lila’s Kat and All for Beauty, who is taking on the boys.

2 1 mile, purse $16,000, 3-year-olds and up, Starters allowance $15,000
1Come Away Home R Bowen9/5122
2Touch the Sun I Enriquez7/2120
4Scat Daddybaby J Couton5/2117
3Tobiah's Journey D Lopez6120
5Beer Meister D Hoonan4120
6Double Shuffle J Zunino12118

Come Away Home has three victories and two seconds in five starts at Emerald this year, and the only question is whether he can handle the distance (his best finish in four tries is a third). Touch the Sun has won twice at this distance at the meet. Scat Daddybaby shoots for his third consecutive victory.

3 6 furlongs, purse $50,000, 2-year-old, NWSS Cahill Road Stakes
5Chu and You J Couton7/5117
6Dallon's Gold R Richard9/5120
4Stikine Slough R Bowen5120
1Classic Harbor J Matias15118
2Belladiva L Camacho-Flores8117
3Moony Moony I Enriquez6120

Chu and You has yet to be challenged in four starts, and she has a good chance to beat the boys in this race. Dallon’s Gold has won easily in both of his races and will challenge the top pick for the early lead. Stikine Slough also has a decent chance to win.

4 1 mile, purse $4,400, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500
1Truly Unusual I Enriquez3117
2Zoe B D Hoonan5/2123
4Royal Cantu M Werner-Hagerty5123
3Jo B With Thee J Whitaker8123
5Special Buttons J Matias4123
6Mary Jeanene L Camacho-Flores15123
7Come On Cozzene E Kubinova6123
8Milieux R Bowen15123

Truly Unusual made up almost 18 lengths to finish second in her last race. Zoe B finished third in that race after blowing a big lead. Royal Cantu tries a mile for the first time. She has finished third in her past two races.

5 11/16 miles, purse $10,000, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, Starters allowance $3,500
5Jacobita J Matias4117
4Sun City I Enriquez6117
7Our Little Hen J Couton7/2118
1Port Wakefield J Whitaker10119
2Have'n a Wild Time J Zunino15117
3Lizzy Lass E Kubinova12117
6Redseasalt D Lopez6117
8Zippin E L Camacho-Flores9/2117
9Mile High Bunk D Hoonan10121
10Montelena N Chaves12117
11Goin Out Tonite M Werner-Hagerty20117

There is a lot of early speed in this race and Jacobita should be rallying late. Sun City is in great form and she does fine at a mile so she can probably go another sixteenth of a mile. Our Little Hen is in great form and has a good shot if she can handle the distance.

6 11/16 miles, purse $10,000, 3-year-olds and up, Starters allowance $3,500
5Koala Beach R Richard4118
6Our Eagle Boy N Chaves9/2118
1Timely Note I Enriquez5118
2Memphis Mobster D Lopez3118
3Bebe Chrissy E Kubinova20118
4It's Our Pleasure J Whitaker10118
7Win Photos Will Do L Camacho-Flores8118
8Danger Ranger D Hoonan10118
9Cresent McGain J Matias8118
10Laachem J Zunino20118

Koala Beach is in great form and lost by a nose at this distance two races ago. Our Eagle Boy beat the top pick in his last race. Timely Note also has a chance in a good, even race.

7 61/2 furlongs, purse $12,000, 3-year-olds and up, Starters allowance $7,500
10Bleu Tarp E Kubinova3118
1Buddy Dave L Camacho-Flores8118
4Decarchy Cocktail R Bowen4118
2He's a Cruiser J Couton8120
3Ugottabcatty D Lopez12120
5Financial Officer J Whitaker10115
6Bid for Pride R Richard12118
7Majorca Gold N Chaves12118
8Ontheshadyside I Enriquez8118
9Havanna Red G Mitchell6120
11Southfork Pegasus C Doll15118

Bleu Tarp has had a great meet, finishing in the money in all seven of his starts, with two wins. There is plenty of early speed to set up the race for a closer like Buddy Dave. Decarchy Cocktail has finished in the money in 11 of 12 career starts.

8 61/2 furlongs, purse $12,000, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, Starters allowance $7,500
3Champali Lace R Richard5/2117
9Touch of Elegance J Matias5117
4Lady Aragorn D Hoonan6119
1Chips Indy Salsa C Doll20117
2Cheese Danish D Lopez10119
5Jewel S. I Enriquez8119
6Tabled With Gold E Kubinova8114
7Daisy Clover J Couton3120
8Holy Dazzle L Camacho-Flores10116

Champali Lace has won nine of 15 starts at Emerald. Enough said. Touch of Elegance had a tough trip in her last race and the 12-time winner at Emerald seems overdue for her first win this year. Lady Aragorn just won a stakes race in Portland and she is 2 for 2 on wet tracks.

9 1 mile, purse $16,000, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, Starters allowance $15,000
8Seventyprcentcocoa J Couton3121
5Sis's Sis R Bowen6119
6Stephanie Plum L Camacho-Flores5/2121
1Sweet Nellie Brown E Kubinova5119
2Ronda Rocks I Enriquez12121
3Lasting Rose D Lopez8116
4Say Say J Matias5116
7Jaz Unlimited D Hoonan8119

Seventyprcentcocoa has won two of three races at this distance. Sis’s Sis, who used to be a stakes star, is not the horse she once was but is dangerous against this group. Stephanie Plum seldom runs a bad race.

10 11/16 miles, purse $75,000, 2-year-old, Gottstein Futurity
3Strawberry Dawn D Hoonan8117
9Noosito I Enriquez2120
8Del Rio Harbor J Couton5/2120
1Decatur Princess R Bowen12117
2Reigning J Matias20117
4Seattle Harbor L Camacho-Flores12117
5Mebossman D Lopez8120
6Twentyten R Richard20120
7Morning Line Wiz E Kubinova7/2120
10Grindster N Chaves20120

Strawberry Dawn faces the boys, but the only horse to have beaten her is Chu and You (who is entered in the third race). Noosito and Del Rio Harbor finished 1-2 in a restricted stakes race earlier this month.

11 1 mile, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $5,000
2Just Like Uptown I Enriquez5/2118
10Eagle Harbor E Kubinova3118
8Count Trevor J Couton4118
1Thirsty for More D Hoonan8118
3The Stolen Way M Werner-Hagerty15124
4Corla N Chaves8115
5Tilldeathwepart G Mitchell10118
6Righteous Cause J Zunino20118
7Lots of Prayers L Camacho-Flores15118
9Dogleg Left D Lopez12118

Just Like Uptown will try to lead from gate to wire in the last race of the year. Eagle Harbor is stuck outside but has a good chance. Count Trevor stretches out to a mile for the first time.

BEST BET: Bleu Tarp.
