10: Huma (Dieguez, Hanson)118/20-1

11: Tale of Clairlyn (Escobar, Rengstorf)118/10-1

Head scratcher of a race to start the Late Pick 4. CASTLE QUEEN ran three wide in debut while in holding pattern for the third spot, candidate to move forward off that effort. CAPTAINS GLORY missed the break in second career start taking her out of contention, better break and positive jockey switch makes her contender for win honors. RACING RAE and GOLD CUP SKIER are new shooters with solid work tabs.

7 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,500.

9: Code of Kings (Hernandez, Donlin)123/8-1

8 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse: $12,500.

9: Appeals the Deal (Velazquez, Biehler)123/15-1

MASTER CHEF takes another drop for the Diodoro barn shipping in from the west coast, has strong shot of being lone speed. Stablemate SMOKIN CAT, might get perfect setup if roommate gets sent too quickly charging late from the outside. MR. SATURDAYNIGHT showed good stalking speed out of state and should be part of the mix early.

9 5½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

7: Nesterenko Ridge (Butler, Rhone)119/4-1

8: Chrome Cat (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)119/5-1

NESTERENKO RIDGE gets new trainer with Bernell Rhone coming off the turf with good early speed, Butler aboard makes this shipper dangerous. FINANCIAL FREEDOM has ran second in all three starts closing from far back, deserving favorite but trust factor is a problem. CHROME CAT invades from Louisiana Down with some decent efforts down there.
