Race 1 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $13,000, Claiming $10,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Fiery Trippi – P Val on a lone speed; he was run down by the in form Joe Carl, no shame there.

6 Marquet Rebel – Exits the same race as Fiery Trippi and Joe Carl; figures to sit back and make one run.

Race 2 – 7 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Dancinonestrellas – Like the turn back in distance from a turf route to this elongated sprint; will be flying late.

5 Kiss My Swiss – P Val on a horse with speed stretching out; put her on the lead and see what happens.

Long Shot – 3 Giveme Onereason

Race 3 – 7 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

8 Jaws n’ Paws – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low level; appears faster over synthetics.

5 Musical Grace – Has outrun her odds 2 races in a row; should maintain value with low percentage connections.

Long Shot – 4 Tuscan Chianti

Race 4 – 7 1/2 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Salty Sarah – In recent times, how often has Bob Baffert claimed a horse; still has tricks up his sleeves.

4 Angel Before Us – Proven at this price level; third start off a 8-month hiatus could be his best.

Long Shot – 7 Lost Prophet

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $38,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

6 Back Street Fever – Jeff Mullins barn is red hot now after a cold summer; no shock if this gal is ready to roll.

1 Plum Pretty – Bob Baffert is a logical chalk in here; watch the tote board for additional clues.

Long Shot – 5 River’s Mambo

Race 6 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $33,000, 3-year-olds

2 Danzip – Jeff Mullins barn is really percolating now; cat and mouse game with the rail horse and P Val.

7 Otto Von Voom – Dead late closer will hope for a speed duel between the rail horses; Joel Rosario makes one brush.

Long Shot – 1 Streakin’ Mohican

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $40,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Vision in Gold – Ron Ellis filly exits 2 graded stakes for this; chased Switch and Blind Luck in last.
