FIRST RACE: 1. Hide My Heart, 2. Gold Journey, 3. Warrensdollarsigns. LONG SHOT: Ill Tell You What.
Trainer John Martin is 33% with shippers and horses from Golden Gate have been doing well so far at the meet. Speed jockey Martin Pedroza jumps on.
FIFTH RACE: 1. #11 Osceola Pond (3-1), 2. Handful of Stripes, 3. Scatastrophe. LONG SHOT: Rare Candy.
This gelding must draw into the race, but if he does watch out. We have been waiting for the offspring of Cape Blanco to go two turns on the turf and that’s what we have for the potent pair of trainer Tom Proctor and jockey Gary Stevens (19%).
Jockey Rafael Bejarano returns to this gelding and has had some past success with him. The jockey is 31% with trainer Richard Baltas. This 4-year-old can be on the pace or come from behind.
When trainer Phil D’Amato gets a horse good, they usually stay that way as witness his 30% win rate with horses that won their last race. Jockey Tyler Baze rides back and must find some position from the outside but this one has the speed to do it.
