EIGHTH RACE: 1. Razorbill, 2. Ready for More, 3. Pure Loyalty. LONG SHOT: Royal F J.

Jockey Victor Espinoza could have ridden another horse in this down-the-hill race who has won over the course, but he chooses this 5-year-old RAZORBILL, which began his career in Europe. The son on Speightstown ran OK back East for trainer John Shirreffs and now tries his luck on the West Coast.

==

NINTH RACE: 1. Moscato Girl (best bet), 2. May Fine, 3. L X Sunrise. LONG SHOT: Run Rosie Run.

MOSCATO GIRL, a daughter of Desert Code, takes the biggest class drop in racing, maiden special weight to maiden claiming. The Cal-bred is running in open company but it shouldn’t matter as jockey Rafael Bejarano should get her to show more speed in this spot. She had a nice third-place finish over the track in October.
