Long Shot - 5 Zees Chris

Race 2 - 4 1/2 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 2-year-olds

7 Lucky Logan - Bullet workouts and excellent clocker reports precede his debut; from the live Peter Miller barn.

Long Shot - 3 Nardo

Race 3 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Midnight Mayhem - Tiny edge in a really awful looking field; the key is dropping down to this bottom level.

6 Stauffenberg - Has tried 12 times to graduate; getting a little long in the tooth, but never faced a group this slow.

Long Shot - 8 Yodeling

Race 4 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $25,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Gelila - A top betting angle is the no claim rule; she is protected for Rafael DeLeon, thus this is a free shot off the shelf.

Long Shot - 6 Belonging

Race 5 - 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Fanny Brice - Despite a win in a condition $25K claimer, is dropped further to $16K; similar effort can win right back.

Long Shot - 4 Winning Rhythm

Race 7 - 6 furlongs, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
