1ST RACE: Purse $10,500, thoroughbreds, claiming, 3 year olds and up, 4 ½ furlongs.
HIGHLY CYNICAL (Guce) showed his former early speed when adding blinkers in last win vs. similar when three wide throughout the turn. PRICE OF GLORY (Charlton0 battled inside top pick for the lead around the turn of last neck loss and runs great for this rider. MR. ZIPPERS (Boag) steadied back along the inside past the ¼-pole in last fifth-place try and best races have come when rallying outside leaders.
2ND RACE: Purse $8,000, claiming, 3 year olds and up, 870 yards.
PUT IT THERE (Hernandez) had rough post draw when wide on the turn of last fourth-place try at this distance vs. stronger and finds plenty of speed horses to chase here. LINCECUM (Santos) has been freshened for seven weeks since last third-place try vs. class-dropping winner and has plenty of early speed. LEGZEE (Boag) defeated a non-winners-of-two lifetime group when opening clear lead on the turn in last and will be hard pressed to get a clear early advantage here.
3RD RACE: Purse $9,000, thoroughbreds, claiming, 3 year olds and up, 4 ½ furlongs.
UNSTOPPABLESTEVE (M Ramirez) made a clear early lead from the rail post in last sharp win at this level and dropped neck photo vs. repeat $3,200 winner Freaky Floyd two outs ago. NO BACHI (Santos) was sharp second in last vs. prior $3,200 first-place finisher Freaky Floyd and can be well positioned early again. SNOWMASS VILLAGE (Marquez) didn’t show his customary early speed after a sluggish start in last third-place try and has rapid prior 3-furlong drill of 33 flat.
4TH RACE: Purse $8,000, thoroughbreds, claiming, 3 year olds and up, 4 ½ furlongs.
SUNRISE LEGACY (M Ramirez) showed improved early speed in last two good tries and is effective from on/off the pace. AERIAL ARTIST (Santos) was hard sent to duel with heavily favored in last strong runnerup try two weeks ago and won nicely vs. similar two outs ago. CONVINCED HIMSELF (Guce) forced the pace on the far turn when tiring vs. much tougher in last and was second vs. repeat $2,500 winner Storm Hollow three outs ago.
Pick Four Selections: $1 wager is $28. 5th Race (2,3,4,6); 6th Race (6); 7th Race (All); 8th Race (3). $1 wager is $96. 5th Race (2,3,4,6); 6th Race (1,6); 7th Race (3,4,6,7); 8th Race (1,3,5).
5TH RACE: Purse $7,725, maidens, fillies, 2 year olds, 300 yards.
ONE SWEET BRI (C Mendez) broke sharp when fourth in last trial outing and was third in debut from the rail vs. eventual trial runnerup Scholarly. SHES POURIN (Arvizu) showed improvement with quick start from outside post in last runnerup try vs. heavily favored winner while well clear of the third horse. SWEET CHOICE (Huerta) broke extremely slow and shifted to the outside in better-than-looked fifth-place debut.
6TH RACE: Purse $7,425, maidens, 2 year olds, 300 yards.
ATTACK THE WIND (Arvizu) looked terrific in 12.0 gate drill before third-place debut from the rail post when strong past the wire after lugging out in the late stages. ONE SWEET HIT (Guymon) was fourth in last trial outing vs. eventual Kindergarten winner One Proud Eagle and needs alert start from the rail post. UP FOR DASHING (DeAlba) tried hard from between horses in runnerup debut and adds blinkers.
7TH RACE: Purse $12,600, allowance, fillies and mares, 3 & 4 year olds, 300 yards.
AJS ANNAS SECRET (C Mendez) ran hard in last two runnerup tries at 100 yards and figures to be very quick early here. GIVE ME SUM SUGAR (Hernandez) broke super in last two wins and beat recent allowance first-place finisher London Laura in last. SECONDSWITCH (A Bautista) broke super from the outside post in last rapid win but was very fractious in the gate when scratched from a similar spot before last outing.
8TH RACE: Purse $9,075, claiming, 3 year olds, 330 yards.
THRICE WISE (Guymon) was strong third in last outing vs. prior allowance winner Tough Broad and was fifth two outs ago vs. eventual derby winner Jess Good Reason. TEMPTING DIVA (C Mendez) broke super in last victory vs. similar and won nicely from the far outside three outs ago. OVER LIMITS (DeAlba) exits derby finals an dquick breaker is better suited at this distance.
BEST BET: ATTACK THE WIND (6TH RACE)
