Post time: 12:45 p.m. Best bet: Bosque Angel (6th). Best play: 50-cent Pick 4 (3rd), All/All/3,4,6/1, $63.00.

1 330 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $12,500. Purse: $9,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Separate Fantasy (Olesiak, Johnson)124/10-1

2: One Smooth Corona (S. Smith, Charette-Hill)126/6-1

3: Seis Memories (Torres, Charette-Hill)124/9-5

4: Just Stridin Ivory (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)124/2-1

5: Streak N Talent (Goodwin, Haglund)124/8-1

6: My Streakin Runaway (Frink, Miller)124/4-1

SEIS MEMORIES should be favorite at gate time after strong effort off a two-month layoff finishing third. JUST STRIDIN IVORY ran second ahead of our top choice last out. ONE SMOOTH CORONA, stablemate of top pick, ships up from Remington Park.

2 330 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $7,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Mt Badbo (Torres, Charette-Hill)124/3-1

2: Ev Again (Vazquez, Rarick)124/12-1

3: Ulnvmystreak (Swiontek, Goodsell)124/8-1

4: Shes Lookn Hothothot (Olesiak, Johnson)124/6-1

5: Countess Noble (Goodwin, Charette-Hill)124/7-2

6: Iba Jess (S. Smith, Hunt)124/5-1

7: A Runnaway Train (Frink, Miller)126/6-1

8: Furriddle (S. Martinez, D. Martinez)126/6-1

MT BADBO failed as favorite last out and now races for half the price to turn things around. IBA JESS and A RUNAWAY TRAIN ran second and third last out in same race.

3 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Mr Diesel (Escobar, Wiley)123/8-1

2: Soul Pilot (A. Canchari, Robertson)119/4-1

3: Cleardofallcharges (Stevens, Green)119/3-1

4: Double Zap (Shepherd, Van Winkle)123/2-1

5: Nantucket Sound (Velazquez, Scherer)119/9-2

6: Career Student (S. Martinez, D. Martinez)123/5-1

DOUBLE ZAP is a candidate to move forward with ample early speed in a field where any runner has a chance to win. SOUL PILOT has been training consistently and should make presence first off the claim for Robertson barn. NANTUCKET SOUND closed well getting up for win last out on sloppy track.

4 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Pappa Loma (Delorme, Turco)123/10-1

2: Deal Master (Velazquez, Flores)123/6-1

3: Secret Approach (Hamilton, Hartman)119/6-1

4: Proud Comet (Ordaz, Silva)119/8-5

5: Sun of King (P. Canchari, Flores)123/15-1

6: Mullers Canyon (S. Martinez, D. Martinez)123/12-1

7: Wheeler Gorge (Franco, Diodoro)123/9-5

WHEELER GORGE projects as the one to catch and would appreciate a dry, fast track after running in the slop last two out. PROUD COMET will challenge up front coming off a game second effort getting roped in late. Race becomes wide-open if top two succumb to exhaustion from speed duel.

5 7½ furlongs. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $22,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Badge of Glory (Stevens, Rhone)119/12-1

2: Talk About Me (Rivera, Sweere)121/8-1

3: Blues Edge (Escobar, Rhone)119/3-1

4: Vonn Nez (Franco, Lund)119/7-2

5: Switchen Er Up (Butler, Bravo)119/5-1

6: Grace of Greatness (A. Canchari, Robertson)121/4-1

7: She’s Mighty Fast (Martinez, Padilla)119/6-1

8: Love Makor (Martin, Lund)119/10-1

GRACE OF GREATNESS drops in class and distance with good early speed and is talented enough to sit off expected pace battle if so chooses by jockey A. Canchari. VONN NEZ should benefit from fast fractions in terrific stalking position with strong middle move if ready to battle. BLUES EDGE set the pace last out and held on for place honors.

6 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Bosque Angel (Carreno, Diodoro)123/5-2

2: Rocket Rebel (Martin, Heitzmann)119/5-1

3: Indy N Mission (Hernandez, Fauchald)123/20-1

4: Art Official (Shepherd, Padilla)123/8-1

5: Grand Stag (Martinez, Van Winkle)123/6-1

6: Saviormoney (A. Canchari, Van Winkle)119/8-1

7: Thecausewaykid (Butler, Rhone)123/15-1

8: Tacoma Park (Hamilton, Berndt)119/2-1

BOSQUE ANGEL has good tactical speed coming off the rail as a major pace player shipping in from Santa Anita. TACOMA PARKS appears to be the one to beat on paper but slight concern with the significant plunge in class. ROCKET REBEL comes off closing win in the mud last out with a lot of upside.

7 7½ furlongs. Turf. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $17,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Dontrattlemycage (Martin, Litfin)119/6-1

2: Pork Chop (Rivera, Hartman)119/10-1

3: I Am Awesome (Shepherd, Torevell)119/6-1

4: Easy Hit (Carreno, McFarlane)115/6-1

5: African Gray (Franco, Diodoro)121/7-2

6: F C Gomango (Hamilton, Offolter)119/10-1

7: Winningcherokee (A. Canchari, Brinson)119/5-1

8: Slamit (Stevens, Green)119/4-1

9: Pastero (P. Canchari, Holder)119/12-1

10: Uncle Brent (Keith, Hanson)119/8-1

AFRICAN GRAY is 2-for-6 as consecutive favorite coming in and is expected to be the chalk once again. Should be near the front from the get-go. DONTRATTLEMYCAGE could prove tough if regains last year’s form where he won all three turf starts on local track. WINNINGCHEROKEE and SLAMIT are intriguing plays running on the grass for first time this year; both look solid on variety of footing.

8 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $12,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Sue’s Stormy (Martin, Rengstorf)123/8-1

2: Alumni (A. Canchari, Hop)123/4-1

3: Sweet Elation (Hernandez, Brinson)123/5-1

4: Floor Money (Keith, Troche)123/10-1

5: Freedom First (Carreno, Donlin)123/9-2

6: Mogilny (Hamilton, Hartman)123/15-1

7: Totee (Escobar, Berndt)123/5-1

8: Blind Magic (Stevens, Torevell)123/15-1

9: Lil’ Apollo (Butler, Pfeifer)123/12-1

10: Leroidessioux (Velazquez, Scherer)123/6-1

ALUMNI should get perfect setup behind ton of pace and enters with bullet gate drill. FREEDOM FIRST was all about speed last out in change of strategy and ran a well-fought second. SUE’S STORMY cranked it up a notch going gate-to-wire with first victory in two years on sloppy surface, slight concern being mud-specialist only.

9 11⁄16 miles. Turf. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $25,000. Purse: $30,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Kissmeimdanish (Escobar, Lund)119/6-1

2: Vertical Lift (Butler, Rhone)119/5-1

3: B J’s Angel (Hamilton, Scherer)121/8-1

4: Sweet Tango (A. Canchari, Robertson)123/8-1

5: Cell Line Forever (Martinez, Rarick)119/9-2

6: Spinning Steel (Carreno, Oliver)118/10-1

7: It’s Tamareno (Martin, Scherbenske)119/6-1

8: Standbyyourmangirl (Stevens, Van Winkle)119/4-1

9: Enlightened (Franco, Lund)119/8-1

10: Dear Fay (Shepherd, Robertson)123/7-2

11: Ridgeofstone (Velazquez, Biehler)121/5-1

DEAR FAY will be my top pick if gets in from the AE list after impressive victory in the Princess Elaine Stakes. SWEET TANGO is all speed but will have company up front to challenge with, could be tough if carries that speed for stretch run. STANDBYYOURMANGIRL faces tougher tonight after putting away rivals from the start last out.

10 1 mile, 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $11,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Riseseastsetswest (Goodwin, Riecken)123/4-1

2: Hola Wild Cat (Carreno, Hawley)123/6-1

3: Somerset Cowboy (Butler, Donlin)123/12-1

4: Noah and O (Shepherd, Padilla)123/3-1

5: Behr Strike (Olesiak, Westermann)123/15-1

6: Paint the Moon (Escobar, Troche)123/2-1

7: Rebel My Man (Ordaz, Silva)123/5-1

NOAH AND O should be tough to fend off if able to transfer running form from turf to dirt with late closing kick. RISESEASTSETSWEST won two back at this distance getting up in final strides. PAINT MY MAN got a confidence builder last race getting sent early before giving way late to finish second in best effort since spring.
