First race: 6:43 p.m.
|1 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,100, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500|
|4||Gold Tie Please||D Lopez||2-1||124|
|1||Play Hard to Win||E Kubinova||3-1||121|
|6||Jimmeny Creek||L Mawing||5-2||121|
|2||Niccolo's Dancer||N Coddington||10-1||121|
|3||Charming Budha||J Matias||10-1||121|
|5||Cielo Forever||R Richard||6-1||124|
|7||Air Grinder||J Rosales||15-1||115|
Gold Tie Please cuts back in distance after two route races. He meets a weak field, and his typical effort could be good enough to win. Play Hard to Win and Jimmeny Creek are rarely close at the end, but their speed figures indicate they should be competitive against this group.
|2 5 furlongs, purse $13,225, 2-year-old, fillies, maiden claiming $25,000|
|6||Twelfth Fan||D Lopez||3-1||117|
|3||Raesbeautiful Hope||L Mawing||7-2||117|
|5||Andiamo Deb||L Camacho-Flores||6-1||117|
|1||Raise the Magarita||J Matias||8-1||117|
Twelfth Fan drops in class from a stakes race. Raesbeautifulhope was claimed for $25,000 out of her last start, and the leading jockey is aboard. Andiamo Deb seems to be regressing after showing some promise in her career debut.
|3 6 furlongs, purse $5,400, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500|
|1||Forbidden Kee||I Enriquez||8-5||123|
|7||Come On Cozzene||R Bowen||2-1||123|
|5||Opening Buzz||L Mawing||6-1||123|
|2||Cookies and Milk||D Lopez||12-1||123|
|4||Bullys Blond Girl||J Zunino||15-1||123|
|6||Miss Fast Eddie||A Sanguinetti||9-2||117|
Forbidden Kee is very consistent, and her typical race should be good enough to win. Come on Cozzene has won two of her last three races. Opening Buzz retains leading jockey Leslie Mawing.
|4 6 furlongs, purse $5,300, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500|
|5||Brats Brat||L Camacho-Flores||7-2||119|
|3||Hollywood Holly||N Coddington||4-1||123|
|1||Claudia's Cahill||J Matias||5-2||123|
|2||Special Buttons||C Doll||12-1||119|
|4||Kiss in the City||J Rosales||5-1||119|
|6||Enter Back||D Lopez||15-1||119|
Brats Brat has been in the money in seven of eight starts this year and seems overdue for her yearly win. Hollywood Harbor could get an easy lead in a rather paceless race. Nobluffjustgo rarely runs a bad race.
|5 1 mile, purse $7,450, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $7,500|
|4||More Strawberries||D Lopez||2-1||124|
|7||Bluegrass Fox Trot||L Mawing||5-2||118|
|5||No Claim Will Do||J Gutierrez||5-1||118|
|1||Power Next||R Bowen||8-1||124|
|2||Its Guiness Time||R Richard||15-1||118|
|3||Inviting Roman||I Enriquez||10-1||118|
|6||Diamond Drop||E Kubinova||8-1||124|
More Strawberries drops in class again after going too fast, too early in fading to third in in his last race. Bluegrass Fox Trot looks good if you can excuse the last race, a flop as the 4-5 favorite. No Claim Will Do got burned out in the same speed battle the top pick got into last race.
|6 6 furlongs, purse $7,200, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $5,000/$4,000|
|2||Rainier Ice||G Mitchell||9-5||124|
|5||Chaching Pete||J Matias||4-1||120|
|1||Carl Command||L Mawing||7-2||124|
|3||Mr. Top Kat||I Enriquez||3-1||124|
|4||Popular Pick||J Gutierrez||10-1||120|
Rainier Ice drops in class after finishing second as the 1-2 favorite. He has a slight edge in a good, even race. Chaching Pete seems to be regaining his form. Leadership has been in the money in 21 of 32 career starts.
|7 51/2 furlongs, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000|
|4||Twilight Harbor||I Enriquez||5-1||117|
|5||Image in the Moon||R Richard||7-2||117|
|3||Platinum Kisses||J Zunino||8-1||117|
|6||Johannas Opinion||L Camacho-Flores||15-1||117|
|7||River Call||J Matias||9-2||123|
|8||Wine At the Park||D Lopez||15-1||117|
Wemissstacy finished second in her first try against state-breds and now gets a jockey switch to the top rider. Twilight Harbor and Image in the Moon drop in class after poor debuts, and could step forward.
Best bet: Forbidden Kee.
