Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 - 6 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Claiming $10,000, Fillies, 4-year-olds

3 Coco de Carchy - The race is full of class droppers; this one from Bob Hess ran a huge race wo win two back.

6 J K’s Mischief - Don’t mind the parking lot post to clock the field; has speed to lead or follow close up.

Long Shot - 1 She’s a Go Girl

Race 2 - 6 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 4-year-olds and up

2 Dreamnofatticus - Rafael Bejarano picks his spots carefully on this card; Gary Mandella taking the blinkers off.

6 Pressure Time - Tepid chalk ran OK in a test drive debut; second time out for Jeff Mullins could be a big improvement.

Long Shot - 4 Atascaderan

Race 3 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $45,000, Claiming $50,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

5 Stole a Kiss - Though she’s never run on turf, her synthetic races are good; gets class relief, blinkers off, for this try.

4 Water Issues - Showed good tactical speed in last; suspect can sit a decent trip throughout.

Long Shot - 2 Lady of the Nile

Race 4 - 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $16,000, 4-year-olds and up

1 Bob Consultation - Forgiving handicappers will draw a line thru last; Tyler Baze is getting live mounts for his comeback.

4 Judge Carr - Claimed by Bob Hess off a nice win in last; he had this horse before, so it’s a strong trainer angle.

Long Shot - 6 Whipstock

Race 5 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $30,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 4-year-olds and up

6 Jet Warrior - Is eligible for this condition due to win for a price tag; like that Jerry Hollendorfer protects him.

7 Crimson Giant - Should get a good price due to low percentage connections; is 0-for-22 on turf, but last few were OK.

Long Shot - 2 I Buy Gold

Race 6 - 1 mile, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

7 Boss of Me - Big rider switch to Joe Talamo for the money shot; first try at this bottom rung was pretty good.

Race 7 - 1 1/4 miles (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

7 Level Headed - Had a nice trip in last but lacked a killer instinct to finish; been camera shy with back to back seconds.

8 Scooter Bird - Dead late closer was a stride late in last; not sure you can change the spots on this leopard.

Long Shot - 1 Passionate Diva

Race 8 - 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

2 Kahala - Bob Hess has a few live ones in today; this one is dropping in class off a so so debut.

Long Shot - 6 Jogget

Best Bet - 6 Jet Warrior (race 5)
