Race 2: #2 The Gold Monkey (5-1)
Trainer Bruce Headley is 40% first time going long from his last 15 races and he puts one of his barn’s top riders aboard in Edwin Maldonado (24%).
Race 5: #9 Tiz a Tommy Town (9-2)
Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC puts its horses where they can win and this first-time starter by Speightstown (16% first time out) is trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, who wins 28% with first-time starters.
Race 8: #10 Catalina Bonita (12-1)
Maybe the light bulb has turned on for this 4-year-old filly. She has been training lights out the last month. So good in fact that trainer Kristin Mulhall moves her up a class level, a move she is 27% with. Look for an improved effort with Edwin Maldonado aboard.
