By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $38,000, Maiden claiming $100,000 2-year-olds

4 Sacred Ovation – Was flattered when Merit Man ran well in the Breeders’ Cup; has good speed to lead or follow close up.

6 Really Mr Greeley – Bob Baffert must turn the page after a miserable two days of the Breeders’ Cup; shed no crocodile tears.

Long Shot – 2 Star Destiny

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $50,000, Optional claiming $25,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Miss Reditore – Reclaimed by Eric Kruljac, one of the strongest trainer angles in racing; Garrett Gomez remains loyal.

13 Miss Becca – Must draw in off the also eligible list; gets class relief, Rafael Bejarano also had a below par Breeders’ Cup.

Long Shot – 11 Miss Well Molded

Race 3 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $22,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $47,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

2 Wednesday – Strong debut race for Carla Gaines baby; could handle these with one step of improvement.

Long Shot – 6 Rosies Ready

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $50,000, Allowance, Fillies, 3-year-olds

13 Lemon Hero – Favorite must draw in from the also eligible list; like parking lot posts down the hillside turf course.

Race 9 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

11 Just Tripping – Slid down the claiming ladder to this class last time; showed a comfort level facing these kind of slowpokes.

9 Toomanylucky’s – Strong gutsy win in last first time for a price tag; Carla Gaines knows what she has, drops the price even more.

Race 10 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), Purse $47,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

5 I’m Wide Awake – Gets class relief from a modest stakes for this; ran great last time for a maiden facing winners.
