First race: 2 p.m.
|1 6 furlongs, purse $17,850, 2-year-old, maiden special weight|
|4||Can't Get Enough||I Enriquez||2||118|
|2||Lita's Kat||J Matias||6||115|
|5||All for Beauty||D Lopez||5||115|
SCRATCHED: Money Cat.
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|
|1||Come Away Home||R Bowen||9/5||122|
|2||Touch the Sun||I Enriquez||7/2||120|
|4||Scat Daddybaby||J Couton||5/2||117|
|3||Tobiah's Journey||D Lopez||6||120|
|5||Beer Meister||D Hoonan||4||120|
|6||Double Shuffle||J Zunino||12||118|
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|
|5||Chu and You||J Couton||7/5||117|
|6||Dallon's Gold||R Richard||9/5||120|
|4||Stikine Slough||R Bowen||5||120|
|1||Classic Harbor||J Matias||15||118|
|3||Moony Moony||I Enriquez||6||120|
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|
|1||Truly Unusual||I Enriquez||3||117|
|2||Zoe B||D Hoonan||5/2||123|
|4||Royal Cantu||M Werner-Hagerty||5||123|
|3||Jo B With Thee||J Whitaker||8||123|
|5||Special Buttons||J Matias||4||123|
|6||Mary Jeanene||L Camacho-Flores||15||123|
|7||Come On Cozzene||E Kubinova||6||123|
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|
|4||Sun City||I Enriquez||6||117|
|7||Our Little Hen||J Couton||7/2||118|
|1||Port Wakefield||J Whitaker||10||119|
|2||Have'n a Wild Time||J Zunino||15||117|
|3||Lizzy Lass||E Kubinova||12||117|
|8||Zippin E||L Camacho-Flores||9/2||117|
|9||Mile High Bunk||D Hoonan||10||121|
|11||Goin Out Tonite||M Werner-Hagerty||20||117|
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|
|5||Koala Beach||R Richard||4||118|
|6||Our Eagle Boy||N Chaves||9/2||118|
|1||Timely Note||I Enriquez||5||118|
|2||Memphis Mobster||D Lopez||3||118|
|3||Bebe Chrissy||E Kubinova||20||118|
|4||It's Our Pleasure||J Whitaker||10||118|
|7||Win Photos Will Do||L Camacho-Flores||8||118|
|8||Danger Ranger||D Hoonan||10||118|
|9||Cresent McGain||J Matias||8||118|
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|
|10||Bleu Tarp||E Kubinova||3||118|
|1||Buddy Dave||L Camacho-Flores||8||118|
|4||Decarchy Cocktail||R Bowen||4||118|
|2||He's a Cruiser||J Couton||8||120|
|5||Financial Officer||J Whitaker||10||115|
|6||Bid for Pride||R Richard||12||118|
|7||Majorca Gold||N Chaves||12||118|
|9||Havanna Red||G Mitchell||6||120|
|11||Southfork Pegasus||C Doll||15||118|
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|
|3||Champali Lace||R Richard||5/2||117|
|9||Touch of Elegance||J Matias||5||117|
|4||Lady Aragorn||D Hoonan||6||119|
|1||Chips Indy Salsa||C Doll||20||117|
|2||Cheese Danish||D Lopez||10||119|
|5||Jewel S.||I Enriquez||8||119|
|6||Tabled With Gold||E Kubinova||8||114|
|7||Daisy Clover||J Couton||3||120|
|8||Holy Dazzle||L Camacho-Flores||10||116|
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|
|5||Sis's Sis||R Bowen||6||119|
|6||Stephanie Plum||L Camacho-Flores||5/2||121|
|1||Sweet Nellie Brown||E Kubinova||5||119|
|2||Ronda Rocks||I Enriquez||12||121|
|3||Lasting Rose||D Lopez||8||116|
|4||Say Say||J Matias||5||116|
|7||Jaz Unlimited||D Hoonan||8||119|
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|
|3||Strawberry Dawn||D Hoonan||8||117|
|8||Del Rio Harbor||J Couton||5/2||120|
|1||Decatur Princess||R Bowen||12||117|
|4||Seattle Harbor||L Camacho-Flores||12||117|
|7||Morning Line Wiz||E Kubinova||7/2||120|
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|
|2||Just Like Uptown||I Enriquez||5/2||118|
|10||Eagle Harbor||E Kubinova||3||118|
|8||Count Trevor||J Couton||4||118|
|1||Thirsty for More||D Hoonan||8||118|
|3||The Stolen Way||M Werner-Hagerty||15||124|
|6||Righteous Cause||J Zunino||20||118|
|7||Lots of Prayers||L Camacho-Flores||15||118|
|9||Dogleg Left||D Lopez||12||118|
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.
