First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.
First race: 6:45 p.m.
|1 1 mile, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000|
|1||Lasting Smooch||L Mawing||8-5||117|
|2||On Line Sweetie||C Doll||12-1||123|
|4||Seattle Bluff||J Matias||9-2||117|
Lasting Smooch has been in the money in five of seven starts, and maybe she can hold on to the lead in her second try at the mile distance. Corla finished ahead of the top pick in her last start but is still looking for her first win in her 14th career start. Grantbobbiawish can complete the trifecta.
|2 6 furlongs, purse $5,700, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500|
|5||Bid for Pride||E Kubinova||7-2||121|
|4||Corner Office||L Mawing||5-2||121|
|1||Premium Quality||A Sanguinetti||2-1||121|
|2||Mr Mahal||L Gonzalez||10-1||121|
|3||Southfork Pegasus||R Bowen||9-2||121|
|6||Neil Healy||J Rosales||10-1||124|
Bid for Pride cuts back in distance and has two wins and two seconds in four career starts at 6 furlongs. Corner Office also shortens up after a decent try at 1 1/16 miles when he lost by less than a length. Premium Quality has won two straight races at Emerald Downs after being 2 for 45 before coming here.
|3 1 mile, purse $7,200, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $5,000/$4,000|
|2||Poly Squat||J Zunino||2-1||119|
|6||Lil Barbie Doodle||L Mawing||5-2||123|
|4||Lady Aragorn||E Kubinova||3-1||123|
|1||Miss Madavor||R Richard||8-1||119|
|3||Agoodlawyer Willdo||J Gutierrez||10-1||123|
|5||Lizzy Lass||G Mitchell||5-1||119|
Poly Squat is in good form and seems to like this distance. Lil Barbie Doodle takes a big drop in class and will try to lead from gate to wire. Lady Aragorn beat the top pick by a head in her last race and is 5 for 9 at this distance.
|4 11/16 miles, purse $5,600, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500|
|4||Parker's Pearl||L Mawing||5-2||120|
|3||Hey Lil Missy||R Bowen||4-1||114|
|2||Crush On You||E Kubinova||7-2||117|
|1||One Smart Girl||L Camacho-Flores||15-1||120|
|5||Sunshine Candy||F Valdez||8-1||123|
|6||Seattle Harbor||R Richard||6-1||114|
|7||Tribal Valentine||I Enriquez||3-1||120|
Parker’s Pearl can win with a similar effort as her last start, when she lost by a half-length at today’s distance. Hey Lil Missy finished a place behind the top pick in the same race. Crush On You is a threat to lead from gate to wire.
|5 1 mile, purse $7,200, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $5,000/$4,000|
|2||Double Shuffle||R Bowen||4-1||124|
|4||Big Bad Brown||E Kubinova||3-1||124|
|1||Havin a Good Day||J Rosales||10-1||122|
|3||Carl Command||L Gonzalez||15-1||124|
|6||Big Question||J Gutierrez||7-2||120|
|7||Buddy Dave||L Camacho-Flores||6-1||120|
Double Shuffle had a very tough trip in his last start and he is 8 for 22 at a mile. Arraignment and Big Bad Brown will be rallying late in a very even race.
|6 6 furlongs, purse $9,300, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $7,500|
|5||Chaching Pete||L Mawing||4-1||120|
|8||Rainier Ice||G Mitchell||8-5||124|
|2||Brock Says||R Richard||8-1||120|
|3||Southern Solution||I Enriquez||8-1||120|
|4||Spot of Salt||E Kubinova||6-1||120|
Chaching Pete gets the leading jockey, Leslie Mawing, and he figures to be back on the early lead after uncharacteristically racing from behind in his last start. Rainier Ice was an easy winner in his last race and will likely be favored. Leadership takes a big drop in class.
|7 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,400, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500|
|2||Fighting City Hall||R Richard||3-1||124|
|1||Credit Line||L Mawing||4-1||124|
|5||Royal Shrine||J Gutierrez||6-1||124|
|6||Wild Hoss||J Zunino||8-1||124|
|7||Southern Influence||J Rosales||15-1||124|
Advancement lost a stretch duel by a head in his last start as the 8-5 favorite when dropping to this class level for the first time. Fighting City Hall is still competitive at age 11. Credit Line might like cutting back in distance.
Best bet: Parker’s Pearl.
