Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Connagher – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career-low class; tighter in second start off a 5-month hiatus.

Long Shot – 6 Rummysecret War

Race 2 -5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $27,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

3 Silencio Gato – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; like adding blinkers on too.

Long Shot – 7 Warren’s Tiger

Race 3 – 6 furlongs (turf), Purse $55,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Saanneen – Ran a cropper in last, but is a proven grass sprinter; expect her to rebound at square value.

Long Shot – 3 Catchy Tune

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Luv Dragon – Only horse in the field to have won last out; a repeat race is clearly enough to beat these.

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1a Correspondent – Kentucky shipper from Tom Proctor has faced good ones at Keenaland and Churchill; do not overlook.

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $52,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Achak – Can Mike Mitchell squeeze out one more win from him?; he has managed this horse beautifully.

Race 8 – 1 1/4 miles (turf), $100,000 Beverly Hills Handicap, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Cozi Rosie – Was never given a chance to win last time; Joel Rosario takes over and no one is riding better.

Race 9 – 5 furlongs, Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

8 Tiz the Tide – The next wave of Bob Baffert babies are here and they are fast; he does have an uncoupled entry too.
