3 Power Series – Class relief and first time gelding are two positive moves; really is turning back in distance.

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $28,600, Claiming $16,000, 3-year-olds

3 Dime – Doug O’Neill has thrown in the towel and puts him up for $16k; thought he had claimed a whole lot better.

Long Shot – 4 Bella Giornatta.

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $55,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

3 Candrea – Another FTS on the card for Bob Baffert; this one also exits a bullet work, watch the tote for clues.

1 Made to Love Her – Jim Kasparoff barn isn’t known for winning first out; key is the rail post and exiting a bullet work.

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 10 feet), Purse $57,200, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Caitie’s Secret – Speed and the rail, which is out 10 feet today; may be able to control things from the inside.

1 Rollerskates – Jeff Mullins is shoving this gal down our throats; she keeps winning, he keeps dropping in class.
