|3||Merry Sherry||J Zunino||5||120|
|4||Lumen Took It||R Bowen||3||119|
Lasting Rose has had success at this distance (a win and a third in two starts). Cheese runs in a route race for the first time and will likely get the early lead. Diner’s Diva is coming off a win and was second in both races at this distance last summer at Emerald.

|3||Brilliant Thought||R Richard||10||113|
|4||Inviting Roman||I Enriquez||10||113|
|6||Grinder Sparksaglo||J Gutierrez||3||118|
Thanks a Million should like stretching out to a mile. Calculated Chaos is an improving horse. Royal Tale will likely try to lead from gate to wire.
|4 6 furlongs, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000|
|1||She's My Favorite||E Kubinova||6||123|

|9||Lahaina Rose||J Gutierrez||5/2||117|
|10||Nothin Like a Dame||L Gonzalez||15||123|
She’s My Favorite drops in class to the level she nearly won at two races ago, finishing second and losing by a half length. Featherlite, making her career debut, wouldn’t have to be great to beat this weak field. Country Grind was third in her debut two weeks ago.
|5 6 furlongs, purse $6,200, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $3,500|
|6||Wedge of Gold||G Mitchell||3||123|
|4||Seattle Game||R Bowen||5/2||123|
|5||Sun City||I Enriquez||7/2||123|
|1||Grand Baylee||L Mawing||6||120|
|2||Have'n a Wild Time||R Richard||8||123|
|3||Port Wakefield||J Whitaker||6||120|
Wedge of Gold returns to a sprint after fading at a mile. Seattle Game returns nine days after a rare poor effort at this track. Sun City is still going strong at age 10.
|6 11/16 miles, purse $6,200, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500|
|1||Corner Office||L Mawing||4||121|
|3||Our Eagle Boy||R Bowen||6||121|
|2||Jade Road||J Whitaker||8||124|
|5||Mr Shane the Pain||E Kubinova||15||121|
|6||Barton Hill||A Sanguinetti||5||124|
|8||Over and Under||L Camacho-Flores||15||121|
|9||Cane Seeker||D Lopez||7/2||124|
Corner Office is better than his last race indicates and is now racing for trainer Joe Toye, who is on a roll. Our Eagle Boy is not real consistent but has a good chance if this is a day he feels like running. Showmethemoneyjim takes a slight drop in class and will be rallying late.
|7 6 furlongs, purse $20,475, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $50,000/$40,000|
|2||Finding More||E Kubinova||9/2||119|
|4||Kind of Naughty||I Enriquez||2||119|
|1||Tabled With Gold||G Mitchell||5/2||120|
|3||Havasu Falls||J Gutierrez||10||119|
|6||Smokin' Grey||L Mawing||4||119|
Finding More runs for a claiming price for the first time since her career debut two years ago. Kind of Naughty was competitive in stakes races at Turf Paradise in Phoenix over the winter. Tabled With Gold tries hard every time.
|8 1 mile, purse $5,900, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $4,000|
|1||Big Black Cat||D Lopez||5/2||121|
|3||Brother Greg||E Kubinova||7/2||121|
|4||Big Question||J Gutierrez||6||124|
|2||Epic Electorate||R Richard||4||121|
|5||Just Like Uptown||L Mawing||3||124|
Big Black Cat lost by a neck in a similar race as the favorite two weeks ago. Brother Greg had a tough trip in his last race. Big Question drops in class.
|9 1 mile, C and G (colts and geldings), purse $50,000, 3-year-old, Coca-Cola Handicap|
|8||Del Rio Harbor||G Mitchell||3||121|
|9||Slice of Red||J Gutierrez||10||114|
|2||Trick Or Retreat||I Enriquez||10||114|
|5||He's Zuberrific||E Kubinova||20||116|
|6||Charlie Thomas||F Valdez||5||116|
|7||Kenai King||R Bowen||6||117|
Noosito looked awesome winning last month’s Auburn Handicap. His stablmate, Del Rio Harbor, was favored in that race and could rebound after being a well-beaten third. Slice of Red showed some talent in two races at Hastings in Vancouver, B.C.
|10 1 mile, purse $5,300, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500|
|4||Sydney On My Mind||E Kubinova||9/2||120|

|1||Jo B With Thee||J Whitaker||8||120|
|6||Chips Indy Salsa||L Gonzalez||6||120|
|7||Come On Cozzene||L Mawing||3s||123|
Nobluffjustgo and Sydney On My Mind were second and third in their last starts, their first tries in a route race. The Doll Room is usually in the money.
BEST BET: Wedge of Gold.
