SECOND RACE: 1. Alfa Bird, 2. Snuggley Bear, 3. He’s On His Toes. LONG SHOT: Z Z Thunder. 

Trainer Victor Garcia isn’t known for winning with first-timers, but ALFA BIRD (5-1), a son of Birdstone, has been tearing it up in the mornings and might just be ready to roll with jockey Corey Nakatani aboard. This is a very tough maiden race.


THIRD RACE: 1. Big Bane Theory, 2. Blue Tone, 3. Safety Belt. LONG SHOT: Calm Pacific.


FOURTH RACE: 1. I’vegotafeeling, 2. Footstepsinbronze, 3. I’ll Wrap It Up. LONG SHOT: Knock Em Flat.

CONQUEST ECLIPSE (6-1), a daughter of Malibu Moon, broke her maiden with ease at Churchill Downs and has been waiting for this spot. She has been working well for trainer Mark Casse. Distance and Polytrack should be no problem.

11TH RACE: 1. Brazilian Court, 2. Know More, 3. Goyan. LONG SHOT: Warren’s Cliff S.
