Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer sends out HEART OF PARADISE, a first-timer by the sire More Than Ready, who is good first time out. Hollendorfer is 29% with first-timers and 23% with 2-year-olds. Hollendorfer has already sent out one first-timer this meet. Jockey Corey Nakatani jumps aboard.

EIGHTH RACE: 1. Sir Macho, 2. Hobbits Hero, 3. Go Black Tie. LONG SHOT: Green Tag.

SIR MACHO, a 3-year-old gelding, draws an outside post going a route of ground on the turf, but jockey Corey Nakatani should be able to work out a nice trip. Trainer Richard Baltas has been on fire (31% with claimers) and has put in a couple of big works into the son of Macho Uno.
