LINCECUM looks to be a very strong contender. His 72 average has this gelding with among the top Equibase speed figs in this contest. Has quite good early speed and will most likely fare soundly versus this field. Recorded a sound Equibase Speed Figure in the latest race. Can run another good one in this affair.

# 1 A MERE DIVA 2/1

# 3 DARING WAVE 4/1

# 2 STRIKE APOSE 4/1

A MERE DIVA is the most respectable bet in this race. She has been running soundly and the speed figs are among the best in this group of horses in this race. Has been racing in the most competitive company of the group recently. Has been racing quite well and has among the top speed in the race for today's distance. DARING WAVE - Overall the Equibase Speed Figures of this horse look very good in this competition. Trainer has sharp win rate (19 percent) at this distance and surface. STRIKE APOSE - Has performed quite well lately in short races, posting a nifty 85 avg speed figure. Going in a short race gives this gelding a decent shot.

# 3 ANYTHINGTOGETEVEN 3/1

# 6 NO BACHI 5/1

# 5 TRIBAL NOTE 2/1

ANYTHINGTOGETEVEN is my choice. Formidable average speed figures in dirt sprint races make this pony a key contender. Demonstrates the look of a lucrative play, averaging a solid 72 Equibase Speed Figure which is one of the strongest in this field. This gelding obviously likes the distance, going 6 / 26 in his races lately. NO BACHI - Will more than likely be one of the leaders of the bunch going into the halfway point of the race. Could beat this group of horses given the 71 Equibase Speed Figure posted in his last outing. TRIBAL NOTE - Will most likely come out very solid - I have liked the way this gelding has moved sharply to the front end recently. Could best this group based on the speed fig - 73 - of his last contest.



Race 4 6:33pm - Maiden - 300 yards on the Dirt. Purse: $7,635 Class Rating: 85

QUARTER HORSE 300Y, FOR MAIDENS, TWO YEARS OLD. WEIGHT, 124 LBS.

# 7 TEMPT 6/1

# 8 EL SONORA 2 20/1

# 5 SPARTAN 8/1

TEMPT looks to be the wager in here. Ought to be given a chance versus this field based solely on pedigree figs. Is a solid contender - trainer has sported very strong figures for two year olds with some good profits for players. Over time, this handler has a competitive ROI at this distance/surface. EL SONORA 2 - By Tempting Dash, has a clear advantage in the bloodlines - brothers and sisters have competed quite well as two-year olds. Tough to pass on this colt with Hernandez in the saddle. SPARTAN - Players should note that this equine runs on Lasix today. Players may be making a risky move ignoring this handler working with a maiden first time starter.



Race 5 6:58pm - Claiming - 4.5 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $9,500 Class Rating: 78

FOR FILLIES AND MARES THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD WHICH HAVE NEVER WON TWO RACES. THREE YEAR OLDS, 120 LBS.; OLDER, 123 LBS. NON-WINNERS OF A RACE SINCE MARCH 24 ALLOWED 3 LBS. CLAIMING PRICE $4,000

# 5 BENICIA GEM 3/1

# 2 SHAMROCK BAY 4/1

# 6 LADY DELANEY 2/1

I think BENICIA GEM is a very good choice. Looks decent to be on or close to the lead at the first call. SHAMROCK BAY - With a quite good 73 speed rating last time out, will unquestionably be a factor in this competition. Watanabe has this mare racing well and is a very good choice based on the very strong Speed Figures garnered in sprint races lately. LADY DELANEY - Has put up sound Speed Figures in dirt sprint races in the past. Has ran strongly in dirt sprint races.



Race 6 7:22pm - Maiden Claiming - 300 yards on the Dirt. Purse: $5,575 Class Rating: 75

# 3 OJOS DE TORO LOCO 3/1

# 4 MATTHEWSCARTEL 7/2

# 6 WALK THE DOG 5/2

OJOS DE TORO LOCO is the most favorable wager in this race. When a handler brings any equine back this quickly it is a positive sign. Soto has this gelding running well and is a very strong pick based on the respectable Equibase Speed Figures earned in short races lately. He must be carefully examined given the quite good speed numbers. MATTHEWSCARTEL - With a formidable 69 average Equibase Speed Figure at the distance, seems well suited for today's outing. Will almost certainly go to the front end and should never look back.



Race 7 7:46pm - Maiden - 300 yards on the Dirt. Purse: $7,035 Class Rating: 82

QUARTER HORSE 300Y, FOR MAIDENS, FILLIES TWO YEARS OLD. WEIGHT, 124 LBS.

# 3 LR ROYAL FLUSH 3/1

# 6 GOLD Y FIRE 7/2

# 4 ONE DASHIN JESS 10/1

LR ROYAL FLUSH looks very good to best this field. A solid 83 avg class fig may give this filly a distinct class edge versus this group. Has performed quite well lately in short races, posting a nifty 60 avg speed figure. This filly with Guymon in the saddle makes her a solid choice. GOLD Y FIRE - When Gomez uses Huerta there's a good chance for sizeable profits. Could beat this field given the 52 speed figure posted in her last outing. ONE DASHIN JESS - Look for a very good pace improvement from this animal who enters with second time Lasix today. She has a good opportunity here as conditioner, Montes, has sharp win clip with horses going this distance.



Race 8 8:10pm - Maiden - 300 yards on the Dirt. Purse: $7,035 Class Rating: 82

QUARTER HORSE 300Y, FOR MAIDENS, THREE YEARS OLD AND UPWARD. THREE YEAR OLDS, 122 LBS.; OLDER, 124 LBS.

# 2 EL REY CORONAS 8/5

# 1 UN DIAMANTEPORCUATRO 3/1

# 3 COSTHAWK 5/1

EL REY CORONAS is tough to overlook as the bet in here. Is a strong contender based on numbers posted as of late under today's conditions. Will more than likely be one of the leaders of the group going into the midpoint of the competition. Should definitely be given a chance in this race if only for the quite good speed fig put up in the last race. UN DIAMANTEPORCUATRO - Has very good front-end speed and will probably fare soundly versus this group of horses in this race. Could beat this group of animals given the 70 Equibase Speed Fig earned in her last outing. COSTHAWK - Could provide positive returns based on strong recent speed figs with an average of 65.



Race 9 8:34pm - Allowance - 350 yards on the Dirt. Purse: $11,025 Class Rating: 96

QUARTER HORSE 350Y, FOR THREE YEAR OLDS WHICH HAVE NEVER WON THREE RACES. WEIGHT, 124 LBS.

# 2 FOO WHO 8/5

# 3 TANGO IN CASH 5/2

# 5 SYMBOL OF FREEDOM 5/1

FOO WHO could be the wager in here. Should be given a shot here on the basis of the figs in the speed section alone. She has a formidable distance/surface win record - 2 - 6. Will likely be one of the leaders of the bunch going into the midpoint of the affair. TANGO IN CASH - Will likely be one of the front-runners of the group going into the halfway point of the race. Strong average speed figures in short races make this animal a solid contender. SYMBOL OF FREEDOM - Could best this group based on the speed figure - 85 - of his last contest. Horses who have been prepared to race at this distance and surface by Flores have shown strong results lately.
