|4||Miners Night||L Camacho-Flores||6-1||118|
|5||Stoney River||R Bowen||6-1||115|
Square Jimmer was easily second-best in his last start, and a similar effort would likely be good enough to win this race. Happy Childhood should improve with the return to a sprint. Mr. Leroy comes here from Boise, and he fits well with this group.

|4||Kenzie Carolina||D Lopez||7-2||117|
|5||Jack the Pirate||R Bowen||9-2||120|
Posse Power is better than his last race indicates. He was a stakes runner at Emerald in his younger days, and this should be a good distance for him. Memphis Beach returns to the claiming level he was claimed for two races ago. Kenzie Carolina faces the boys, but it’s not the first time she has done that.

Best bet: Starlight Gem.
