FIRST RACE: 1. Nite Delite, 2. Kiss My Face, 3. Blue Cilantro. LONG SHOT: Lady of Winterfell.

SECOND RACE: 1. #3 FRANDONTJUDGE (6-1) best bet, 2. Smart N Dreamy, 3. Papslilprincess. LONG SHOT: Enduring Erin.

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer is 28% with horses first time off the claim and that’s what he has with this filly. She had a ton of trouble in the last down the hill at Santa Anita and might relish a return to two turns.

This gelding finished third at this level at Golden Gate going long on the turf. Trainer Ed Moger Jr. some good past numbers at Del Mar and jockey Joe Talamo decides to stay aboard.

NINTH RACE: 1. #3 With the Breeze (6-1), 2. Big Hat Charlie, 3.  Flat Gone. LONG SHOT: Go First.

This gelding had trouble at the start last time and probably didn’t like the mud last time at Del Mar. Trainer Vann Belvoir is 25% second time with horses and hot jockey Flavien Prat staying aboard.
