SHAMROCK BAY (Bednar) disappointed in lat fifth-place try as the 3-5 favorite seven weeks ago and new trainer is winning at 35 percent clip.

ORE PASS (Arias) tumbles in class after last sixth-place try locally at longer distance and hails from sharp barn.

7TH RACE: Purse $8,515, claiming, 3 year olds and up, 300 yards.
     SUGAR ME SWEETER (Lozano) was much improved in 1 ¼-length maiden comeback win after nine-month layoff in last and is nicely spotted here. HESS (Marquez) was sharp third vs. class-dropping winner in last and meets softer field here. EL SOLECITO (Huerta) didn’t have smooth trip when bumped at intervals to the 1/8-pole in last and looked good in prior maiden win.
