By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 7 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

Trilliant – Finally got the trip in last because Michael Baze just sent; expect similar tactics.

Craig’s Storm – Slides down in class to his known comfort zone; figures to be grinding hard late.

Long Shot – Storm Machine

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $55,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Star Redeemer – Big finish last time and could be sitting on go for John Sadler; he’s had chances too.

Raise the River – If he couldn’t win last time at 4/5 odds, will he ever win; logical chalk again.

Long Shot – Ashley’s Cutie

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

His Boy Elroy – Has put together two strong races for this class level; needs some pace to close into.

Bullybullybully – Second best to a nice horse in Wagels; should still be improving after just two starts.

Long Shot – Niger River

Race 4 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $57,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

B’s Lucky Strike – Should see a nice trip from the rail; dead late closer will save important ground.

Arcodoro – Speedball should have no trouble getting to the top; Joe Talamo must slow down the early pace.

Long Shot – Sulution

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $62,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

Screen to Screen – Bob Baffert cull figures to have an easy time on the lead; Joe Talamo in front again.

Long Shot – Davos

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $55,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

Sterling Outlook – Tough trip in last; Peter Miller switches to Rafael Bejarano for the money shot.

Long Shot – Pulsion

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $66,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Missit – Showed big improvement up in NoCal; like that Ben Cecil hires hot riding Joel Rosario.

Long Shot – Hot ‘n Dusty

Race 8 – 1 1/4 miles, $700,000 TVG/Betfair Hollywood Gold Cup, 3-year-olds and up

Life Is Sweet – Filly ran a huge race when second to stablemate Zenyatta; chance for a major upset.

Parading – Tepid chalk ships west for Shug McGaughey; he rarely leaves home unless he has a big shot.

Long Shot – Bullsbay

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Earstoyou – Her big maiden win at Keeneland points her out; if she can handle Polytrack, she can handle Pro Ride.

Lavender Touch – Speedball was flattered when Forty Dates won next out; she’ll play catch me if you can.

Long Shot – Good Night Gyrene

Race 10 – 1 mile (turf), $250,000 Royal Heroine Mile, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Gotta Have Her – Tyler Baze had her too far back chasing a pedestrian pace; pace scenario to her liking.
