Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Red Tomatoes – Logical chalk is among others taking a steep class drop; should be able to clock the inside speed.

Race 4 – 5 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Kaylie’s Joy – Just missed last time in a solid effort; third start off a 7-month hiatus should be her best.

Long Shot – Allie Wolff

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $22,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

His Boy Elroy – Faced much tougher 8-months ago at Del Mar; if he’s fit, he could easily invade the party.

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $44,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Classy Eva – It’s time she put it all together and graduated; big rider switch to Felipe Valdez for the money shot.

Dani Strikes – Tepid chalk in a wide open race; there are 5 FTS so you have the edge of seeing the tote board.

Long Shot – Chase the Fever

Race 7 – 1 mile, Purse $48,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 4-year-olds and up

Self Made Man – Returns off a 6-month hiatus; Mike Mitchell barn is going so well, a win off a layoff is no big deal.

Long Shot – Never

Race 8 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $44,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Swiss Jewel – FTS from Carla Gaines is bred to win early; like that she hires Rafael Bejarano for maiden voyage.
