Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds
5 Made to Worship – FTS from the maestro Jerry Hollendorfer; Tommy Town is a betting stable, so watch the tote board for clues.
8 Shakeitupbetty – Typical green debut, slow early, fast late; figures to show improvement in second career start.
Long Shot – 3 Wired for Fun
Race 2 – 1 mile, Purse $23,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
5 No Tricks for Jack – Takes the weight off with bugboy Irving Orozco; has won 2-of-4 starts going one mile.

Long Shot – 1 Ghost N Your Heart
Race 3 – 1 mile, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up
5 Scarly Charly – Janet Armstrong has had a quiet year with only 50 starts; this one can develop into one of her good ones.
7 Crucero – Rafael Bejarano gives most of his mounts a fighting chance; the key is he gets good position and knows his foes.
Long Shot – 2 Airfoil
Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $58,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
3 Zanbo – Draw a line thru last in a race that came off the turf; her grass resume is pretty strong, compared with these.

Long Shot – 7 Heat Du Jour
Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
6 Metaxa – She’s finally found her friends at this bottom level class; chance to improve under Eddie Truman.

Long Shot – 1 Princess Suances
Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $35,000, Claiming $32,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
10 Joeandbetty’sbaby – Rafael Bejarano had options and lands here; parking lot posts are better down the hillside turf course.
1 Noise of the Crowd – Suspect value with rider switch to bugboy from Rafael Bejarano; her race two back is fast enough to upset.
Long Shot – 6 Distant Image
Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds
8 Beverly the Boss – FTS from Peter Miller is an expensive sort for this barn; bred to be quick and excel around 1-turn races.
2 Star Sighting – Bob Baffert will be a fixture in most MSW races here; he has so many babies, watch his uncoupled entries.
Long Shot – 5 Fashion Plate
Race 8 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), $100,000 Robert J. Frankel, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up
3 Moone’s My Name – Tiny edge in an impossible stakes race; it’ll come down to who can carve out the best trip for home.
7 Customer Base – Mike Smith for Gary Stevens who opted to ride Gulsary; must always respect the barn of Tom Proctor.
Long Shot – 5 Stormy Lucy
Race 9 – 1 mile, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds
8 Impeccably – Ran a career best when sliding down the maiden claiming ladder; that was on turf, this is on organic dirt.

Long Shot – 7 Big Rosie Brown
Best Bet – 5 Made to Worship (race 1)
