8: Miss Emma Rose (Torres, Charette-Hill)124/7-2

9: Jessie Miss Six (Delorme, Anderson)124/20-1

MISS EMMA ROSE was mugged at the beak last spin and now gets ideal outside draw for clean break. PRIMA FIRE looks to rebound after bobbled beginning out of the gate last out. THREE HOT DREAMS has been making a living hitting the board.

2 300 yards. Open. 2-year-olds. Maiden. Purse: $11,500

9: Lil Puddle Talk (Luark, Olmstead)122/12-1

10: Regal Ivory (Torres, Charette-Hill)122/5-2

REGAL IVORY dueled throughout but ended up second best in his third career start. CASHGAR finished strong to to get up for place honors last out. QUEEN OF CADDO has been a consistent runner in all three efforts.

1: Jess Hasta Be (Goodwin, Johnson)122/12-1

2: Heiress to Royalty (Torres, Weidner)122/4-1

3: Eyra Hayes (Swiontek, Livingston)122/10-1

4: Mitey Thunder (Beaty, Weidner)122/7-2

5: Such an Easy Chick (Eikleberry, Johnson)122/10-1

9: Fast Eye Opener (Richard, Johnson)122/12-1

10: Exceptionally Fast (Delorme, Johnson)122/8-1

NOBULL JUST CORONA drove her way to victory while breaking her maiden last out, quickest time of today’s group at this distance. HEIRESS TO ROYALTY is undefeated in both starts. MITEY THUNDER and SUCH AN EASY CHICK merit respect and loom to be biggest threats to top two choices.

4 1 mile 70 yards. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $4,000. Purse: $10,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Freeze Your Kela (Delorme, Anderson)123/10-1

2: Go to the Pulpit (Franco, Wolff)123/15-1

3: Bixley (Eikleberry, Diodoro)123/1-5

4: Dark Red (P. Canchari, O’Callaghan)123/8-1

5: Silver Ember (Sanchez, Perez)123/12-1

6: Somerset Mariton (Richard, Donlin)123/20-1

BIXLEY is the most logical choice of the day with form numbers towering his rivals shipping in from Santa Anita. GO TO THE PULPIT will need to regain last year’s numbers in order to make presence, had major traffic troubles last out so we’ll give him a pass. DARK RED should be forwardly placed but will have to step it up big time to beat the chalk.

5 About 1 mile 70 yards. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: G Road (Delorme, Kirby)123/6-1

2: Archarchmonarch (Murphy, Bolinger)123/2-1

3: Wanamingo (Franco, Wolff)113/8-1

4: Regal Rival (Velazquez, Pfeifer)118/9-2

5: Triple Threat (Butler, Rhone)118/5-2

6: Zero (Carreno, Rhone)123/5-1

TRIPLE THREAT doesn’t need the lead but might take with this group of pursuers, jockey Butler should be able to control a moderate pace to shake loose. Stablemate ZERO, looks to improve stretching out on the turf after failing to fire last out. REGAL RIVAL has decent turf pedigree and could enjoy running on the lawn for the first time.

6 5½ furlongs. State-bred. Open. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden Claiming: $10,000. Purse: $12,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

2: Blumin Vow (Butler, Rhone)123/5-1

3: Blues Orbit (Carreno, Rhone)119/6-1

4: Easyonureyes (P. Canchari, Bethke)114/20-1

5: Rj’s Indy Storm (Sanchez, Litfin)119/15-1

6: Margo’s Song (Murphy, Bethke)119/2-1

7: Northern Lucero (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)119/9-5

Head scratcher of a race with many ways to go. NORTHERN LUCERO should enjoy the class relief after showing brief early speed with his three starts before fading badly. BLUMIN VOW was unhurried in lone start and might of needed to get his feet wet to improve second time out. BLUES ORBIT is lone first time starter and might of found the perfect shaky group to get things rolling at first asking.

7 About 1 mile 70 yards. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $20,000. Purse: $20,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Spinning Slew (Lopez, Jr., Fisher)123/15-1

2: Spinning Steel (Eikleberry, Oliver)123/4-1

3: Artistic License (Sanchez, Tracy, Jr.)123/3-1

5: K C’s Misfit (Delorme, Kirby)123/5-2

6: Ebony Elegance (Escobar, Biehler)123/6-1

7: Hayaku Josan (Hernandez, Fields)123/15-1

8: Bella Parvati (P. Canchari, L. Canchari)123/20-1

ARTISTIC LICENSE will be pursued by the field as the one to catch to get the win, not a ton of pace, so looks to lull field asleep getting to the wire first. K C’S MISFIT has been a rival of Artistic License last two out and not much separates the two. EBONY ELEGANCE will settle in behind front runner for first attack.

8 6 furlongs. State-bred. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

6: More Mona More (Eikleberry, Thompson)119/5-2

7: Your Last Warning (Butler, Rhone)119/3-1

8: Belong to One (Velazquez, Sweere)123/8-1

CAPTAINS GLORY ran career best speed number last out after getting caught late and losing by a head, could prove tough hombre if keeps improving. MORE MONA MORE dueled most the way with Captains Glory before hanging late as the beaten favorite. YOUR LAST WARNING introduction to racing begins today with a solid series of works.

9 About 7½ furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $30,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Circus Girl (Vergara, Rengstorf)121/8-1

2: Lamazone (Franco, McFarlane)121/5-1

3: Dorn (Escobar, Robertson)121/7-2

4: Isntzee Wondeful (Carreno, Brinson)117/10-1

6: Thunder and Honey (Butler, Robertson)121/8-1

7: Counterfactual (Goncalves, Amoss)119/4-1

8: Garden Games (Sanchez, Padilla)117/10-1

9: Wealthy Shipman (Eikleberry, Scherer)117/8-1

COUNTERFACTUAL cruised to a six length margin victory last out as the heavily bet favorite, top pick after that performance. THUNDER AND HONEY drops from a fifth place effort in stakes race to a field more to her liking, positive jockey switch to Butler doesn’t hurt either. EMMA LEA’S SONG steps up in class after consecutive wins on the grass, must not be overlooked.

1: Catsnotnapping (Eikleberry, Silva)123/6-1

2: Bonesprings (Goncalves, Amoss)123/6-5

6: Take a Powder (Hernandez, Troche)118/20-1

7: Smart Masterpiece (Swiontek, Herb)123/12-1

BONESPRINGS drops a notch as a new purchase for the Tom Amoss barn shipping up from Churchill Downs, training well for his local debut. JOHNNY FOOTBALL appears the one to beat and the one to catch out of the Diodoro barn, might be tough to tackle if gets by with easy fractions. CATSNOTNAPPING will be closing late and is my threat to upset the field, will need to improve greatly.
