#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Tricky Snicker (Castro, McKinley)124/12-1

2: Buddha Baby (Clark, Jr., Miller)124/10-1

3: Volcom Star (Clark, Holdaway)126/6-1

4: Bigtime All the Time (Montoya, Hardy)124/2-1

5: Shake Em Mr Tr (Cruz, Johnson)124/3-1

6: Fowl Play (Pinon, Johnson)124/4-1

7: Goose River (Swiontek, Livingston)124/8-1

FOWL PLAY should be a healthy price for a trainer that excels off the extended layoff. BIGTIME ALL THE TIME usually finishes strong and appears to be the one to beat. SHAKE EM MR TR has a knack for the minor awards but could move forward with this field.

2 350 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $15,500.

1: Justa Bump (S.Bethke, Donlin)126/2-1

2: Chick Fight (Torres, Weidner)124/10-1

3: My Gunbuddy (Goodwin, Silva)126/12-1

5: Dashing Good Reason (Clark, Harris)124/3-1

6: Afterallitseasy (Delorme, McKinley)126/10-1

7: Gramma Ella (Swiontek, Livingston)124/5-1

8: Bully B Quick (Cruz, McKinley)126/12-1

JUSTA BUMP looks to be the cream of the crop and has two quick bullet drills coming in. CHICK FIGHT, CRASHED ON CORONA, and DASHING GOOD REASON merit respect but most likely will be fighting for underneath spots.

3 About 11⁄16 miles. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming: $20,000. Purse: $32,000.

1: Fine Assay (Franco, Scherer)123/5-2

2: Corsa Veloce (A.Canchari, Villafranco)123/8-1

3: Scatin Around (McNeil, Ashford)123/12-1

4: Hey Didjanotis (Sanchez, VanWinkle)123/2-1

5: Shesa Sweet Secret (Carreno, Brinson)123/10-1

6: Highwayormyway (Butler, Bravo)123/9-2

7: Malibu Kash (Martin, Jr.,Diodoro)118/6-1

FINE ASSAY should be gathering late momentum with ground-saving trip off the rail in what should be a frenzy up front for the lead. The race sets up perfectly for this deep closer. HEY DIAMONDS too will be let go from the rear and is coming off a late-charging, four-length win. HIGHWAYORMYWAY and MALIBU KASH will hook up in early duel and going as far as their legs take them.

4 About 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $20,000. Purse: $19,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Hide the Hooch (A.Canchari, Stuart)119/8-1

2: Benny’s Babygirl (Castro, Weir)123/15-1

3: Racinrosemary (Sanchez, Padilla)119/5-1

4: Haley’s Comet (Martinez, Robertson)123/6-1

5: Spot Special (Goodwin, Silva)123/5-2

6: U’ll Love This Cat (Franco, Shaw)119/10-1

7: Housemaker (Velazquez, Berndt)123/5-1

8: Hankypank Girl (Martin, Jr., Diodoro)123/4-1

HOUSEMAKER got off slowly last out facing tougher at Santa Anita and deserves another chance at a square price. Needs a decent pace scenario to swoop in. SPOT SPECIAL should be on or near the lead shipping in from the west coast also. Slight concern with pulling up and walked off last effort. Pre-race scrutiny is suggested. HALEY’S COMET comes off the sidelines with strong encouraging work tab. Consistent runner here last summer.

5 About 5 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Kenna Mae (Keith, Biehler)119/8-1

2: Dun Dancin (Franco, Lund)123/10-1

3: Gone Ghazi (Delorme, Donlin)123/20-1

4: Unbridled Mayhem (A.Canchari, Rhone)119/2-1

5: Notorious Miss (Goodwin, Silva)119/3-1

6: First Hunter (Martinez, Robertson)119/7-2

7: So Blue (Escobar, Rhone)123/15-1

8: Anzoo (Sanchez, McShane)119/12-1

9: Anniesfirstdance (Hernandez, McKinley)119/20-1

UNBRIDLED MAYHEM has numbers that are superior to the field and will be extremely tough to beat if adjusts to grass experiment tonight. NOTORIOUS MISS too tries turf for the first time and probably will be the late-closing threat. ANZOO and SO BLUE will be big prices but are legit players to pay skinny shares.

6 3½ furlongs. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Carosteiin (Keith, MBiehler)118/4-1

2: Nik Nak Paddy Wak (Hernandez, Silva)118/6-1

3: Socrates Creation (Goodwin, Silva)118/2-1

4: He’s a Talker (Martin, Jr., Litfin)118/7-2

5: Big Door Prize (P.Canchari, T.Bethke)118/8-1

6: Little Timmy (S.Bethke, T.Bethke)118/9-2

SOCRATES has the best overall works in this 2-year old field, including snappy drill two back. HE’S A TALKER could be post-time favorite for hot trainer Litfin. Workouts suggest he’s ready to fire. CAROSTEIN only has three works in preparation for unveiling but last one was pretty dazzling at three furlongs.

 

7 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming: $25,000. Purse: $32,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Miss Darla (Sanchez, Padilla)119/6-1

2: Rockin the Bleu’s (Franco, Biehler)119/4-1

3: Ball and Chain (Butler, Robertson)119/2-1

4: Distraction (Martin, Jr., Diodoro)119/7-2

5: Sky and Sea (A.Canchari, Rhone)123/5-2

MISS DARLA will be the largest price on the board but figures to be a major threat picking up the pieces at what should be scalding fractions. Lone closer in the field has a big shot for the upset. SKY AND SEA didn’t disappoint as the chalk last out and will be bringing and feeling the heat fighting for the lead. ROCKIN THE BLEU’S might sit back a tad with Franco aboard letting others do the dirty work. Narrowly missed exiting a prolonged pace battle.

8 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $33,000.

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: L G Suprem (Hernandez, Fauchald)123/6-1

2: Plenty of Sun (Franco, Lund)123/9-5

3: Sassy Prance (Butler, Rengstorf)118/5-2

4: Macho Storm (S.Bethke, T.Bethke)123/8-1

5: Pennant Fever (Joubert, Hanson)123/9-2

6: Bold Entry (Clark, McKinley)123/8-1

In what appears to be a three-horse race, I’ll give the advantage to SASSY PRANCE, who yielded to show honors last out after battling for the lead throughout the distance, Entitled to move forward on a dry track. PLENTY OF SUN finished ahead of Sassy Prance in that race for second best after stalking the pace before edging ahead. PENNAT FEVER figures to be better tonight ,exiting his career-best speed figure on the turf. Could be pounding chest with grit now.

9 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $4,000. Purse: $10,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Raton Pass (Martin, Jr., L.Rarick)123/6-1

2: Cajun Don (A.Canchari, Litfin)123/5-2

3: Sonicvelocity (IHernandez, Fields)123/8-1

4: Smile Daddy (S.Bethke, Butler)123/10-1

5: Winningcherokee (Franco, Brinson)123/4-1

6: Corporate Chapel (Butler, W.Rarick)123/8-5

CORPORATE CHAPEL numbers match well against this group and gets Butler at the helm. One dimensional runner will come flying late. CAJON DON bid his time on muddy track before sneaking up for neck-length win as the favorite last out. WINNINGCHEROKEE exits same race as Cajon Don running third with late gain on the rail.
