Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $28,000, Claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds

Professnl Courtesy – Ground saving trip; Rafael Bejarano had options and decided to ride this colt.

Zetterberg – Tepid chalk in a wide open race; takes a small, but significant, drop in class to win.

Long Shot – Carson’s Copper

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

Star Redeemer – John Sadler has an uncoupled entry in here; suspect that one of the two will win.

Leavethegateopen – Favored Sadler entry ridden by Martin Pedroza; showed high cheese in last.

Long Shot – Beauteous Maximus

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $11,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

Saxophone – Exits a win in a NW2L condition claimer; no heroes in here so he could win right back.

Brooker – Tepid chalk exits a horrible effort in last; was claimed by the white hot Ted West, we’ll see.

Long Shot – Satellite

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $30,000, Claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

Nima’s Pad – When Bejarano or Gomez jump on a nondescript runner, you need to look at the horse twice.

Seven Secrets – Sharp win in last and deserves this double jump in class; improving for Jack Carava.

Long Shot – Headache

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $11,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds

Superfecta – Winner for Ted West who drops him in class; red flag move, but won twice off the claim.

You Is What You Is – Joel Rosario off has been a good handicapping angle; Garrett Gomez sits for one move.

Long Shot – Norco Pal

Race 6 – 1 mile (turf), $100,000 Miesque, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Habaya – Ran a better than looked race in the Jessamine; she still has an incredible high ceiling.

Emmy Darling – Exits a good try in the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf; she faces much easier in this spot.

Long Shot – Internallyflawless

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $14,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, 2-year-olds

Indy Olmo – Was well bet last time and showed improvement; should see plenty of cheap early speed.

Bubsy – Tepid chalk ran evenly in an improved effort; may have finally found his comfort level.

Long Shot – Red Jasper

Race 8 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), $400,000 Citation Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

Medici Code – Got a perfect test drive in last off a 8-month hiatus; has more back class than you think.

Whatsthescript – Logical chalk is sure to be way overbet; no doubt his best race would crush these.

Long Shot – Hyperbaric

Race 9 – 7 furlongs, Purse $38,000, Optional claiming $25,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Swift Demand – A stride late in last; Garrett Gomez remains loyal, takes care of unfinished business.

Pack Your Bags – Another Rosario off play; has tactical speed, and Bejarano, to attend the early pace.

Long Shot – Major Smoke

Race 10 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $12,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up
