By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 7 furlongs, Purse $21,000, Claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

Conclave – Favorite is the most dangerous play in racing, lone speed; will take come catching tonight.

Forest Phantom – His closing style makes him the victim of pace; the chalk appears to be lone speed.

Long Shot – Stand Tall

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Screen Gem – Been away 8-months, returns in the barn of John Shirreffs; was well regarded as a 2-YO.

Candace Gold – FTS gets the services of Rafael Bejarano; all the starters with experience have holes.

Long Shot – Black Magic Mama

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 20 feet), Purse $50,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

My King – Speed is always dangerous; with the turf rail out 20 feet, he may be able to carry it a long way.

Gothic Samurai – Interesting invader figures to receive a lot of betting; meant to be a good one.

Long Shot – Concerto’s Thunder

Race 4 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $46,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Camille C – 3-for-3 in the money in her brief career; facing a soft group, today may be her day.

Gambling Pokerface – Sure to be overlooked with low percentage connections; should be closing.

Long Shot – Shine’n Time

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $33,000, Claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

Yankee Visionary – Has a strong late kick; he’ll look for pace to chase, his race two back was a corker.

Roi Charmant – Won twice for Alonso Quinonez, gets replaced by Rafael Bejarano; the speed to catch.

Long Shot – Northern Soldier

Race 6 – 7 furlongs, $150,000 A Gleam Handicap, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Lovely Isle – Jeff Mullins takes over for Bobby Frankel, who is dispersing much of his stable.

Silver Swallow – 7 furlongs is one of the toughest distances to go wire to wire; I like closer like this to win.

Long Shot – Lady Lumberjack

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

Tenga Cat – Been away one year, but proven as a turf sprinter; will be helped by the turf rail out 20 feet.

New Bay – Was overmatched last time in the San Felipe; tries turf for the first time, should like it.

Long Shot – Cape Truth

Race 8 – 1 1/8th miles, $300,000 Swaps, 3-year-olds

Grazen – Appears to be the lone speed, the best bet in horse racing; plays catch me if you can.

Misremembered – Bob Baffert charge is improving with each start; tactical speed to clock the chalk Grazen.

Long Shot – Massone

Race 9 – 6 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

Strong Belief – Showed big improvement in last; appears ready to step up and get his picture taken.
