Post Time 1:05 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $28,-000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

7 Trumpet Player Jay – Bit rank last time attending a modest pace; suspect today’s faster sprint pace is more to his liking.

4 Evening Island – Closed well last time now taking a big class drop; a bigger move may be the switch to Rafael Bejarano.

Long Shot – 8 Star Nicholas

Race 2 – 5 furlongs (turf), Purse $71,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 Roar Baby Roar – May have discovered a new, effective closing style in last; should see plenty of pace again to rally into.

6 Love My Way – Could be a Rafael Bejarano daily double; has a lot of early speed, but so do many others.

Long Shot – 5 Deity

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, Purse $70,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

3 Den’s Legacy – Did everything but win last time in a gritty effort; Bob Baffert adding blinkers on to get over the hump.

8 Persuasive Paul – FTS from the Leandro Mora/Doug O’Neill barn; notice how hot they’ve gotten with him under suspension.

Long Shot – 5 Winningconnections

Race 4 – 1 mile, Purse $36,000, Claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Jairzihno – Hasn’t won in 2 years so you need some value; sneaky class drop and he has a good closing kick.

2 Achak – Horse like this are hard to figure; has the resume, back class to win but is returning from a 9-month hiatus.

Long Shot – 1 Arcodor

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, $250,000 Pat O’Brien, 3-year-olds and up

6 Coil – Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry and both are capable of winning; keep an eye on Capital Account to run on late.

5 Camp Victory – People are rooting for Mike Mitchell as he battles cancer; monster race unsetting The Factor in the Triple Bend.

Long Shot – 5 Capital Account

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $70,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

13 Sophie’s Secret – Morning line favorite must draw in off the also eligible list; well bet in debut and ran OK for John Sadler.

Long Shot – 7 Sacred Delight

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf), $200,000 Del Mar Mile Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

4 Jeranimo – Absolutely exploded in the deep stretch to win the grade 1 Shoemaker; keep Garrett Gomez on this 6-YO.

6 Obviously – Speedball will hope no one goes with him; Joe Talamo rode a similar style with Let’s Go Cheyenne the other day.

Long Shot – 3 Mr. Commons

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $70,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

10 Caminetto – Look at the two colts who’ve beaten him, Brother Francis and Jimmy Creed; his day will come, maybe today.

2 Seven Bridges – Typical green debut, hopped and slow early, fast late; a decent start and he’ll have a much easier task.

Long Shot – 5 Confederate Cat

Race 9 – 1 1/4 miles, $1-Million TVG Pacific Classic, 3-year-olds and up

9 Game On Dude – This is no slam dunk, but I still feel he’s the best in the west; free running, suits Chantal Sutherland to a T.

3 Richard’s Kid – This turned into a grudge match when new owners took him away from Bob Baffert; races for Leandro Mora today.

Long Shot – 4 Where’s Sterling

Race 10 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $71,000, Optional claiming $25,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up
