My Maloof Rocker – She’s the most proven performer on turf; figures to get a nice trip in this compact field.

Ditto This – Broke her MSW on turf two back and ran better than looked in last; should be charging fast late.

Long Shot – Savannah Peach

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $22,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 2-year-olds

Let’spickupthepace – Speedy sort turns back in distance for this; tactical speed to be forwardly placed throughout.

Onebadkitty – Love everything about her except the parking lot post; there’s just 6 in here so Talamo should be OK.

Burna Dette – Battled late with the favorite last time so she is a serious threat; will be grinding hard late.

Long Shot – Suziqcutie

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $36,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

Position A – Outran his high odds in debut when a solid second for Richard Mandella; poised for victory.

Spring House – Draw a line thru the BC Turf debacle and he’s a major player; will see a perfect race shape.

Long Shot – Racketeer

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $38,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

A Lil Dumaani – Has kept improving from modest beginnings; tactical speed to sit a nice trip for Michael Baze.
