|7||Trick Silver||F Valdez||10-1||118|
|8||Boss Talk||J Rosales||12-1||118|
Quack of Lightning can improve a lot after having issues at the gate in his career debut. Gavinator showed some early speed before fading in his debut. Badrock Canyon can fill out the trifecta.

|5||The Prime Mover||D Lopez||5-2||118|
|2||Stealth Fighter||A Sanguinetti||2-1||124|

|3||Passion Cat||15-1J Rosales||118|
|4||Sociable Gold||E Kubinova||12-1||118|
|7||Killian's Red||L Gonzalez||8-1||118|
The Prime Mover can improve with a cleaner trip in his second start at Emerald Downs. Stealth Fighter has been facing better horses in Southern California. Red Rainier might have good early speed based on his very fast 3-furlong workout on Saturday.
|3 11/16 miles, purse $5,600, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500|
|7||Bird Colonel||J Zunino||9-2||121|
|2||Gold Tie Please||L Mawing||5-2||124|
|4||Play Hard to Win||J Rosales||6-1||121|
|1||Duke Street King||I Enriquez||7-2||124|
|3||Joel N Jill||J Matias||9-2||115|
|5||Salsa Boy||R Richard||4-1||121|
|6||Niccolo's Dancer||D Lopez||15-1||121|
Bird Colonel has been in the money in four of five starts at this distance. Gold Tie Please is a question mark at this distance but is at the proper level after winning for the first time in his last race. Play Hard to Win should improve in his second start at Emerald Downs.
|4 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,800, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $4,000|
|1||Claudia's Cahill||I Enriquez||7-2||123|
|7||Promiscuous Harbor||R Bowen||5-2||120|
|5||Miss Fast Eddie||D Lopez||9-2||117|
|2||Tribal Valentine||R Richard||8-1||123|
|3||Silly Streak||C Doll||20-1||120|
|4||Crush On You||E Kubinova||5-1||117|
Claudia’s Cahill lost by a head in her last race, but a similar effort might be good enough to win this race. Promiscuous Harbor has been second in three straight races. Miss Fast Eddie has had tough trips in her past two races.
|5 61/2 furlongs, purse $9,300, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $7,500|
|3||Rainier Ice||G Mitchell||5-2||120|
|4||Surprise Sale||I Enriquez||3-1||122|
|1||War Wizard||L Gonzalez||7-2||120|
|2||Chu and I||D Lopez||4-1||120|
|6||Carl Command||L Camacho-Flores||6-1||124|
Rainier Ice drops in class to a level where he should be tough to beat. Surprise Sale has won seven of 13 career starts. War Wizard jumps up in class after a nice win.
|6 6 furlongs, purse $14,800, 3-year-old, fillies, claiming $20,000/$18,000|
|1||See My Tail Lites||E Kubinova||3-1||117|
|2||Point Da Harbor||G Mitchell||7-2||114|
|4||Forever a Fan||L Mawing||5-2||117|
|5||K K's Wonderwoman||J Gutierrez||5-1||117|
|6||Knight Club||I Enriquez||9-2||117|
See My Tail Lites is improving each race. Point Da Harbor has won three of her past four races but is jumping up in class. Forever a Fan has been racing decently on the synthetic surface at Golden Gate in Northern California, and has a good chance if she likes running on real dirt.
|7 6 furlongs, purse $5,300, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500|
|7||Premium Quality||A Sanguinetti||2-1||121|
|3||Expenses Paid||R Richard||7-2||124|
|6||Sam Jam||I Enriquez||4-1||121|
|1||Cat Mon Blue||R Bowen||5-1||121|
|2||Lots of Prayers||J Matias||8-1||124|
|4||Decisive Fact||L Gonzalez||15-1||121|
|5||State Capital||L Mawing||5-1||121|
Premium Quality makes his first start at Emerald Downs, but he has a speed-figure advantage. Expenses Paid won for the first time in two years in his last race. Sam Jam is better than his last race indicates.
Best bet: Rainier Ice.
