Race 1 – 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

8 Bio Pro – Sliding down the maiden claiming ladder to this career low class; need not be much to beat these.

Long Shot – 7 Warren’s Parolee

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $58,000, Allowance, 4-year-olds and up

10 Guest Star – Has really improved the last two starts off a 3-month hiatus; John Shirreffs must of corrected something.

1 Gnarly Dude – Claimed for $25K by Kristin Mulhall, has cashed 3 paychecks since; his last 2 turf sprints are very good.

Long Shot – 9 American Blend

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, $75,000 Paseana Handicap, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

3 Charm the Maker – With Ron McAnally getting knee surgery, a win here would boost his spirits. class relief for modest stakes.

1 Distracting – Bob Baffert filly has shown solid skills in 3 career starts; like that she will save all the ground inside.

Long Shot – 7 Candrea

Race 4 – 7 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds

8 Demonic – Exits a bullet workout for John Sadler; suspect FTS will be a hot commodity among the SoCal clockers.

Long Shot – 1 Major Affair

Race 5 – 1 mile, Purse $30,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

4 Exclusive Story – Like Calder shippers coming to SoCal; this one debuts for Vladimir Cerin.

Long Shot – 8 Cavalla

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 3-year-olds

1 Nicegirlsfnishlast – Let’s hope Rafael Bejarano did not break his wrist yesterday; if so he’ll need replacement riders.

4 Devious Chic – Outran her 16/1 odds in debut when lost by 2-lengths; key leg in the pick 6 with a $231K carryover.

Long Shot – 8 Poster Girl

Race 7 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, 4-year-olds and up

4 Arresting Officer – Won nicely and is dropped in class by Gary Stute; that’s called shoving him down our throats.

Long Shot – 7 Chinese Praise

Race 8 – 1 1/8th miles (turf, rail at 15 feet), $150,000 San Gabriel, 4-year-olds and up
