By Richard Eng

Post Time 7:05 p.m.

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

7 Absolutlypositivly – Like the parking lot post in this elongated sprint; taking the blinkers off.

Long Shot – 5 Warrens Temptation

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $40,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

4 Scofield Barracks – Tiny edge because he is in dead stroke; the chalk has been away a long, long time.

1 Irrefutable – Impressive FTS win; put on the shelf for 10 months, the key question will be maturity and fitness.

Long Shot – 5 Sea Rascal

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, 2-year-olds

5 Dime – Beaten favorite faced a tougher group in last at Del Mar; gets a return visit with Joel Rosario.

Long Shot – 3 Certainly Certain

Race 4 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $12,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Quoted – Tiny edge in a difficult, cheap heat; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip for Kerwin John.

5 Swift Demand – Respect Ron Ellis as he doesn’t claim many; big rider switch to Alonzo Quinonez for the money shot.

Long Shot – 9 Two Violins

Race 5 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $26,000, Claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Pack Your Bags – Profitable claim by Jack Carava; he slides in class, but has won his way out already.

5 Mrs. Cacht – Red-flag drop in class by Jeff Mullins; been away 10 months, may have enough left in the tank.

Long Shot – 1 Sassou

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $26,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 L’Enchanteresse – No one in this group is big on winning; she is 1-for-20 yet is faster than most of these.

2 Tiz a Bud Girl – Good horses have good names, so this gal remains a question mark; favored here, but not by much.

Long Shot – 3 Ruby Lane

Race 7 – 1 mile, Purse $48,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Meteore – Class relief from the grade 2 Oak Tree Mile to this; should be able to save some ground tonight.
