Race 1 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

4 Stonewall Jackson - Leap of faith in trainer Ron Ellis on the drop; not much to choose among these slowpokes.

2 Broken Glass - Woke up with a career best effort in last; he likely still needs to improve to graduate.

1 Brown Is Beige - Claimed by Jeff Mullins who is on a roll like the good old days; shown to like Santa Anita sod.

4 Sarasota Sunshine - Went wire to wire in last win; suspect she will not need the lead to succeed under Rafael Bejarano.

Long Shot - 5 Picture Perfect

Race 3 - 6 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Maiden claiming $75,000, 3-year-olds

5 Tummel - Like the cut back in distance from route to sprint; figures to find his best stride late.

2 Put It There - Tepid chalk has some gas to attend the early pace; class relief returning to face other maidens.

Long Shot - 6 Cast a Doubt

Race 4 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds

1 Koast - Exploded with a fast win in turf debut; this may be his preferred surface, like Rafael Bejarano up.

8 Boat Trip - Another who woke up first time on turf; Jose Valdivia, Jr. is trying to rebuild his SoCal business.

Long Shot - 3 Declan

Race 5 - 6 furlongs, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $25,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

1 Trapper's Bounty - Claimed by Vann Belvoir and dropped in class; adding blinkers on and Rafael Bejarano.

4 Mona Storm - Off the turf angle; solid shot in a wide open affair, tactical speed to sit a nice trip.

Race 7 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, 4-year-olds and up

4 Uzziah - Returns to the claiming price he was claimed at by Robertino Diodoro; class relief is always and advantage.

5 Jim's Decision - Tepid chalk in another difficult leg of the pick 6; 2-day carryover makes the wager a must play.

Race 8 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 8 feet), $75,000 Sidd Finch, 4-year-olds and up

3 Make Music For Me - Dead late closer in a race jammed with early speed types; class relief from the grade 1 Kilroe.

Long Shot - 5 Calimonco

Race 9 - 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

11 Enduring Promise - He looks like lone early speed; Corey Nakatani as good as it gets nursing a speedball wire to wire.

6 My Slew - Don't see many claimed out of a maiden claiming $20K; Steve Asmussen must have seen something long term.

Long Shot - 10 Night Wind

Best Bet - 11 Enduring Promise (race 9)
