FIRST RACE: 1. Lamazone, 2. Ann’s Gold, 3. Diamond Flush. LONG SHOT: Afleet Echo.
SECOND RACE: 1. Silent Secret, 2. Sky Heart, 3. Life On Riviera. LONG SHOT: Congrats Seattle.
THIRD RACE: 1. Llandudno, 2. Pontchatrain, 3. Biorhythm. LONG SHOT: Fanticola.
This is a tough race as trainer Tom Proctor has the two favorites (Pontchatrain and Biorhythm) in here, but we are going for the upset with this filly, LLANDUDNO (10-1). The 4-year-old loves the downhill with two wins, a second and third in six lifetime tries for trainer John Sadler. Back her up in the exactas with the rest of the field.
FOURTH RACE: 1. Comanche Ruler, 2. Global Magician, 3. Cardiac. LONG SHOT: Not Enough Eddie.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Cinmars Dance, 2. Romar Success, 3. Jackson Sundown. LONG SHOT: Songforjohnmichael.
SIXTH RACE: 1. Lady Bugatti, 2. Go Get Em Babe, 3. Laria. LONG SHOT: Faringdon Circle.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Unusual Style, 2. Fashioned Lady, 3. George’s Peach. LONG SHOT: Scene Queen.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Everton (best bet), 2. Secretsatmidnight, 3. Yard Line. LONG SHOT: Bird E House.
NINTH RACE: 1. Sixy Eddie, 2. Mom’s Winner, 3. Lethal Story. LONG SHOT: Q’Viva.
Apprentice jockey Drayden Van Dyke rode five horses in this race in their last starts and he chooses this 3-year-old filly, SIXY EDDIE (20-1). She broke her maiden at Los Alamitos, but might have gained a ton of confidence for trainer Michael Curtis. If CRAVIN’ THE HEAT draws into the race consider that filly because she gets a huge jock switch to Corey Nakatani. The only draw back is the outside post.
