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.

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.

Long Shot - 2 I Buy Gold
Race 6 - 1 mile, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

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