Race 1 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $40,000, 3-year-olds

4 Distort This – Looks like lone early speed; with the turf rail out 24 feet, there is a lot of advantages here.

Long Shot – 6 Trucial State

Race 2 – 1 mile, Purse $50,000, Optional claiming $25,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

4 Hyena – Gets class relief exiting the Shepherd stakes for this $32K price tag; speed to lead of follow close up.

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, 2-year-olds

4 Doubledeesonthetee – Flattered when Carving won next out for Bob Baffert; huge class drop to face a much easier task.

Long Shot – 6 Primed and Ready

Race 6 – 7 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Claiming $10,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 Striking Spirit – Like horses that won while running a lower Beyer speed figure; should have lots of room to improve.

4 Always a Chance – Has run two strong turf races for Sean McCarthy; Joe Talamo is currently the meets leading rider.

9 Chimi Dee – Tepid chalk gets a negative rider switch from Garrett Gomez; still the move helps the price, if you like the horse.

1 Greeley Awesome – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; its Doug O’Neill and Mario Gutierrez again.
