Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Purse $45,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

3 Artemis – Was flattered when Storming won the Hollywood Starlet on Saturday; expect improvement from this filly.

Long Shot – 2 Lady Bugatti

Race 2 – 7 furlongs, Purse $42,000, Claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Amazing Hearted – More Bob Baffert love; not far fetched to see him win the early daily double.

Long Shot – 1 Shadow Runner

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, Purse $27,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, 2-year-olds
