Northern California-based trained Steve Sherman doesn’t ship much to SoCal therefore this 4-year-old filly, SPRAGUE RIVER (9-2), must have a big shot. Big jock switch to Joe Talamo and this filly had a good fourth over the downhill course last winter.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Peradventure, 2. Run Like a Million, 3. Guy Code. LONG SHOT: Big Swag.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Talco, 2. Helm, 3. Ashleyluvssugar. LONG SHOT: Sofast.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Barbara Beatrice (best bet), 2. Lucy in Diamonds, 3. Alwazabridesmaid. LONG SHOT: Scuti de Patuti.

BARBARA BEATRICE (8-1), a 3-year-old, came running down the lane in her debut. With that under her belt, trainer Phil D’Amato puts the blinkers on, a move he is 38% with in 13 mounts, and D’Amato is 23% with second-time starters.
