Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $24,000, Claiming $26,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Senator Bob - Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low class; has speed to lead or follow close up.

5 Joe Carl - Talk about a horse that’s busy in the claiming ranks; just think of all the tax money he’s made for California.

Long Shot - 3 Cook Inlet

Race 2 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $25,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

6 Blameitonthecat - Stretching out around 2-turns for the first time; should show a lot of speed to lead or follow close up.

2 Elegant Trick - Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; key switch is adding Rafael Bejarano.

Long Shot - 7 Shopping Savannah

Race 3 - 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $45,000, Claiming $62,500, Fillies, 3-year-olds

1 Burns Turn - Has been a nibbler with 3 seconds in 5 turf tries; hugs the rail and could show some improvement.

5 Somethingabouther - 7-of-13 in the money finishes on turf; field full of underachievers, we’ll see who inherits the lead.

Long Shot - 7 Buckingham Bull

Race 4 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

7 Well Lawyered - Got a test drive in last as a 7/5 favorite; stretches out in distance, expect a better effort tonight.

1 Sweet Sunshine - Much improved race in last, first time wearing blinkers on; anything close to that can win this.

Long Shot - 4 Secretsatmidnight

Race 5 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

3 Cervaro - Just missed as the chalk last time out; race full of underachievers, but somebody has to graduate tonight.

1 Aqua Revelation - Been away 19 months for Bob Baffert; been working bullets in the a.m. and facing no killers in here.

Long Shot - 5 Proven Warrior

Race 6 - 6 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds

1 Moonlit Meteor - This winner is brought to you by the team of Paul Aguirre and Iggy Puglisi; expect a square price too.

2 Eight Stitches - Tepid chalk has tons of early speed, but has been out nearly a year; goes as fast and as far as he can.

Long Shot - 8 Congregationalist

Race 7 - 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $48,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Tiz a Classy Lass - Was left with too much to do late last time; big rider switch to Rafael Bejarano who will find a spot.

8 Keldy - Mike Smith subs for Gary Stevens who is on suspension; tactical speed to sit a nice trip throughout.

Long Shot - 9 Blazen All Star

Race 8 - 7 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

16 Proud Boss - Has been knocking on the door with 3 seconds; second start off a layoff must not be a bounce effort.

1 Tenkiller Kid - Takes the blinkers off and slides down in class; like the cut back in distance too.

Long Shot - 13 Deception Free

Best Bet - 6 Blameitonthecat (race 2)
