4 Aqua Revelation – Leading rider Rafael Bejarano always gets his horses in the right spots; this one for Bob Baffert barn.

1 Gal Has to Like It – Taking a huge class drop from $20K to $8K; speed to protect the rail and save all the ground throughout.

Long Shot – 6 Red Outlaw

7 On My Honor – Has a lot of back class where he can improve upon his last two races; tactical speed to sit a nice trip.

Long Shot – 4 Awesome Indy

6 Kobe’s Back – If he runs today as well as he’s been working, the field is running for second; been a highly hyped animal.

Long Shot – 1 Van Dien Avenue

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds

9 Fifteen Black – For those who play roulette, you know what this name means; was a 4/5 favorite in debut, working fast for this.

5 Nooten – Tepid chalk has one caveat for me; was on the vet’s list on Jan. 25, but has worked twice since and may be just fine.
