1 Meta Mu – Like the rail post at a mile, can save every inch of ground; Kristin Mulhall has been very live this meet.

Long Shot – 9 Indian Princess

Race 5 – 1 mile, Purse $24,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

5 Misdeed – Takes a big class to face much easier; ran a couple of good dirt races back at Santa Anita in February 2013.

1 New Summit – Another live Rafael Bejarano mount; ran well in debut and is likely to improve for trainer Ted West.
