Race 1 – 1 1/8th miles, Purse $16,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Kind Lady – In a cheap route race, speed can be the controlling factor; she figures to get a soft lead and keep going.

Warren’s Walk – She stretches back out around 2-turns; has some tactical speed so going long, she’ll sit close up.

Long Shot – White Angel

Race 2 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $42,000, Claiming $50,000, 4-year-olds

Pistol Pete Afleet – Got a public workout in last chasing Rail Trip; he figures to be well meant today for a win.

Trevor’s Clever – Was completely outclassed in the Strub and not persevered with; has back class to run well today.

Long Shot – Jimmhy Da Brick

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds

Wolfgang – Looks like a race you could time with a sundial; ran a winning race for this class last time out.

Olympic Magic – Ron Ellis adds blinkers on, which should make him a tough customer; goes 2-turns for the first time.

Long Shot – Mont La Salle

Race 4 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $46,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds

Thorondor – Taking a steep class drop from open to Cal-bred company; showed ability in both career starts.

Jacob’s Little Bro – Ran evenly chasing a slow pace in sprint; stretching out around 2-turns, will sit closer.

Long Shot – Warren’s Tony R

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies, 4-year-olds

Catch Candy – Steve Knapp wins most of his races on the drop, like this; like the turn back in distance too.

Snow On Christmas – Claimed by Bill Spawr and aggressively raised in class; consistent sort cashes paychecks.

Long Shot – Blame the Wine

Race 6 – 7 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Allowance, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Music Magic – Good second in her SoCal debut; second start off a 4-month hiatus, could improve even more.

Pinkarella – Speedball was raked in the grade 1 Las Virgenes; gets class relief and needs to a confidence builder.

Long Shot – Life By R R

My Maloof Rocker – Rail skimming ride for Joel Rosario; beaten favorite switches from open $50K to Cal-breds.

Long Shot – Paloma’s Flight

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $13,000, Claiming $10,000, 4-year-olds and up

Flip the Penny – Ran a clunker in last as a beaten favorite; his race two back is fast enough to upset these.
