1Royal Shrine L Mawing10-1124
4Call for the Wild D Lopez8-1124
6Wild Hoss J Zunino8-1124

6Mr. Leroy D Lopez5-1124
3Kahului Bluff R Richard3-1118
4Miners Night L Camacho-Flores6-1118
5Stoney River R Bowen6-1115

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.

6 1 mile, purse $14,800, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $20,000/$18,000

4Kenzie Carolina D Lopez7-2117
2Songandabullet L Mawing4-1120
3Surfliner R Richard6-1120
5Jack the Pirate R Bowen9-2120

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.

7 51/2 furlongs, purse $5,300, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500

Atta Boy Lucky cuts back in distance and has a good chance with a better start than he had in his last race. Bull Whiskey lost by a head when dropping in class to this level in his last race. Expenses Paid has been in the money in seven of eight starts this year.

Best bet: Starlight Gem.
