1He's Zuberrific G Mitchell4122

5Hey Lil Missy G Mitchell4114
7Parker's Prospect R Richard15117

4Lake Piru A Sanguinetti6118

Point Da Harbor is back with trainer Roy Lumm after being claimed for $15,000 in her last race. She had won three straight before finishing fourth in that race. I Absolutely Will can improve in her second start after a long layoff. Five Alarm Charm has been racing in Boise, and she should fit OK against this group.
