Race 2: #2 Faster Cat (3-1)
Trainer Quinn Howey does is a 25% trainer, mostly on the Northern California fair circuit. He brings this gelding down to So Cal off a big win at Ferndale. This 6-year-old has won over the surface before and should be right in the thick of it.
Race 3: #4 Power Crazed (7-5)
This 3-year-old Empire Maker colt cost $275,000 at auction and he’s bred to love the dirt. Made his debut for trainer Bob Baffert over the Polytrack at Del Mar and finished sixth, making up a lot of ground in the stretch. Now he’s on his preferred surface, has a good work over the track and barn rider Martin Garcia jumps on. Might be a Pick 5 and Pick 6 single.
Race 5: #7 Goofy Rainbow (6-1)
Trainer Paul Jones is one of the top, if not the best, quarterhorse trainer in the country and he tries his luck with this thoroughbred. A daughter of Idiot Proof, she has been training well over the surface and Jones is 38% with jockey Vinnie Bednar.
