2 Runningwiththelute - Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; Aaron Gryder has a few live mounts today.
5 Warren’s Tricia R. - Consistent sort gets the hot riding bugboy Drayden Van Dyke to take 5-pounds off; he’s improving daily.
Long Shot - 4 She’s a Given
Race 2 - 6 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Starter allowance $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
4 Eltoninadress - Claimed by Steve Miyadi off a sharp win; this is a nice spot for a repeat as she’ll be favored again.

Long Shot - 3 Ya Wanna Hug
Race 3 - 6 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up
3 Marv - Been away 7-months, but cashed a lot of paychecks at this bottom maiden class rung; Saul Arias is fine, will help the price.

Long Shot - 8 Wackett
Race 6 - 6 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
7 Musical Arts - Ron Ellis hasn’t started many this meet, but they all fired; properly placed for a potential win at very short odds.

Long Shot - 2 Miss American Pie
Race 7 - 1 mile, Purse $17,000, Claiming $16,000, 3-year-olds and up
3 Goyan - Woke up last time with a career best effort; claimed by Carl O’Callaghan, can win this on OPT, other people’s training.

Race 8 - 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up
10 Senator Bob - Gritty win last time in a head bob finish; logical chalk, is not nearly consistent enough to solo in here.

Long Shot - 1 Unstopper Topper
Best Bet - 7 Musical Arts (race 6)
