3 Oh Daddy Oh – Peter Miller uncoupled entry has a good shot at running 1-2; Joel Rosario back in town for Turf Festival.

Long Shot – 7 Harbaugh

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $30,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

2 Midnight Lady – Sliding down the claiming ladder for John Sadler; doesn’t hurt that Joel Rosario is riding.

Race 4 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

4 Maxx the Giant – Has had many chances, but none with Joel Rosario; his race 2 back, if repeated, can beat these.

Long Shot – 4 Jack Milton

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

3 Forest Boy – Maybe I give Joel Rosario too much credit; just seen him move horses up a length or two automatically.

8 Secretsatmidnight – Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry, so caveat emptor; both appear on the improve too.

Long Shot – 5 Battled

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf), $250,000 Matriarch, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Tiz Flirtatious – There is a lot of speed in here, could set it up for a closer; that man Joel Rosario again.
