Race 1 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $15,000, Claiming $10,000, 4-year-olds and up

1 Shem – Flattered when Mr. Bossy Pants won next out; sliding down the claiming ladder, does have decent dirt resume.

Long Shot – 4 Maker

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $58,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, Fillies, 3-year-olds

2 Almost a Lady – Threw in a clunker facing much tougher in a Cal-bred stakes; this is an easier, confidence building race.

Long Shot – 4 Vicki Victoria

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

6 Maryjean – Huge class drop affords a big shot today; like the class drop, these are clearly her friends in here.

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $30,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 4-year-olds and up

4 Ultimate Decision – Won as easily as a horse could in last; facing winners for the first time, it can be a major hurdle.

2 El Tango Ray – Good effort in last and appears capable of better; we’ll see if grass becomes his preferred surface.

Long Shot – 3 Clearance Clarence

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

3 Clean Break – The hardest race on the card is in a key spot on the card; none of these have any turf form to speak of.

4 The Grans – Her grass race two back is reason enough to think she could upset; second time blinkers on could show improvement.

Long Shot – 1 Vonn Nez

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

1 Russian River – In a race this nondescript, sometimes you handicap the trainers; Mike Mitchell charge would be no surprise.

9 Subpoena the Dress – Claimed by Linda Mikus off a win for Bob Hess; key vote comes from Rafael Bejarano remaining loyal.

Long Shot – 7 Victory With Class

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $25,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

6 Sunburn – Traded punches last time out with Meltarib; this field is evenly matched so the verdict goes to the best trip horse.

7 Meltarib – Has cashed a lot of paychecks ont he grass; runs best when settles early and fires in the deep stretch.

Long Shot – 4 Ruffled Feathers

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $27,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, 4-year-olds and up

5 Bull Ring – Small edge in another difficult heat; lost a nose in debut and was 4-lengths clear of the third place horse.

Long Shot – 3 Father Pabst

Best Bet – 2 Almost a Lady (race 2)
