Trainer Robertino Diodoro has had a big meet so far this year in Southern California and he claimed this gelding TWIN SIX in March. The 6-year-old has been given six weeks off and the trainer still moves him up off the claim. Diodoro is 29% first time off the claim.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Warrens Lil Margie, 2. Lakota Road, 3. Callous Effect. LONG SHOT: New Nature.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Veronica Bay (best bet), 2. She’s Flush, 3. Ryleigh Ruler. LONG SHOT: Nonna Reese.

Jockey Fernando Perez had his choice of several horses in this race and settles on this daughter of Vronsky, VERONICA BAY. She doesn’t have the best form, but she drops to her lowest level ever and she has shown some speed in the past, which she can use to her advantage in this spot.
