5: Desert Prize (Martinez, Rengstorf) 123 9-2

6: Ghost Skier (Hanson, Francisco) 123 7-2

GHOST SKIER should come out firing off the long absence and dictate the pace as the lone speed for trainer Bravo with Lori Keith aboard. SAM WAYNE comes off the shelf from a win in the last race of the 2013 season. Does his best running sitting in the convoy behind pace before running late. Seasoned veteran BIZET, returns to Canterbury where he has done his best running with a solid workout tab entering.

1: Sue’s Stormy (Hernandez, Rengstorf) 123 6-1

2: Hes a Preacher (Olesiak, Wekseth) 123 5-1

3: Lil’ Apollo (Butler, Randy) 123 5-2

4: Let Da Cowboy Rock (Goodwin, Donlin) 123 4-1

5: Great River Skier (Keith, Bravo) 123 3-1

6: Know No Somerset (Eikleberry, Donlin) 123 9-2

The Bravo/Keith team have a decent shot of sweeping early double with GREAT RIVER SKIER, who also possesses early speed as his dorm mate in the first. Could grab the lead but doesn’t need it. HES A PREACHER is all speed and will be zipping from the start. Must-use on your ticket the way his speed crushed last weekend. LIL APOLLO ran his best race in his finale last season in first two-turn attempt. Possible confidence builder to start this year.

8: Okra Wind Free (Castro, Troche) 119 12-1

9: Smokem Bull (Rivera, Green) 119 9-2

CIAO VALENTINA gets the slight nod in the first turf race of the summer meet. Won last out at Turf Paradise with HOF jockey Scott Stevens who stays on as the pilot. RECLUSIVE also invades from Turf Paradise after a win sprinting on the dirt. Should get square price first off the claim for trainer Diodoro. THREE CUTIES and SIS BOOM BAH are logical choices to be in the hunt and are musts on the ticket.

10: Bear Facts (Eikleberry, Lund) 119 8-1

11: Undone Sweater (Martinez, Padilla) 119 12-1

FLAXEN MAIDEN’s last turf challenge was against much tougher early this year at Santa Anita. Jockey A Canchari and trainer Brinson are off to strong starts as expected. LIAR LIAR LIAR was mugged at the start last out but was able to rejoice somewhat with a game placing. A clean break and clean trip makes her the one to beat. JULIE’S MEMORY could run away from the gate as the possible lone speed. Two lone turf starts brought home bronze medals.

1: Boston Proper (Eikleberry, Green) 121 3-1

4: Guard the Rock (Carreno, Diodoro) 119 4-1

5: Cuzan (Martin, Wolochuk) 121 5-1

6: Bing’s Magic (Shepherd, Robertson) 121 4-1

PAPA SMITTY threw a gutter ball last out but looks to rebound to previous speedy form. Might be destined to duel with others at what could be a frenzy for the lead. BING’S MAGIC finished last year’s two races showing good early speed while holding on for place and win honors. GUARD THE ROCK will be escorting the front runners for the first attack. Winner by five lengths last out.

6: Bluegrass Lucy (Canchari, Padilla) 123 4-1

7: Spinning Slew (Escobar, Cole) 123 15-1

DOLPHIN SHORTS jumps off a turf victory going gate-to-wire for trainer Silva at Turf Paradise. Definitely the one to catch while dictating the pace with jockey Ordaz aboard. MEZZANOTTE won last out at this distance against softer at Turf Paradise with Stevens in the saddle as main closing threat. HAWKEYE HONEY returns to the local track ,where the mare has done her best running.

7: Frankie Dapper (Olesiak, Wekseth) 123 6-1

8: Talk the Walk (Martin, Wolochuk) 123 9-2

ALUMNI and TOMMYSCHENANIGANS will be the main event up front knocking heads. Alumni will get the best of the duel and attempt to hold off the onslaught of closers. MASTER DEMAND and JETS TO BRAZIL will be cut loose down the stretch-run, making bids to overtake the hopefully exhausted pace setters.

7: I’m a Bully Too (Martinez, Van Winkle) 119 8-1

8: Going for Miles (Canchari, Robertson) 119 5-1

ATOMIC could be the runaway lone speedball and tough to catch coming off the rail, where position has been deadly to start the season. GOING FOR MILES faded badly last out in first start but look for big improvement second time out for Robertson/Canchari team. SKY SURFER is a first-time starter who has fired four bullet drills in consistent training schedule. Must keep eye on.
