SIXTH RACE: 1. #6 Structure (6-1) Best bet, 2. Bellamentary, 3. Shakti. LONG SHOT: Escapee.

This daughter of Bernardini was bred to route. She finished fourth at 5 ½ furlongs and that was just a prep for this as jockey Mike Smith jumps on for trainer Bob Baffert, who is 28% with first-time routers.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. #6 Tatum’s Gold (30-1), 2. Glory, 3. Whisk. LONG SHOT: Madam Aamoura.

Gonna take a big swing here with this long shot as the sire Grazen is 29% with first-time turf, albeit with a small sample. Still, shows some like of the turf. Trainer Steve Miyadi is 22% first time turf and good turf jockey Joe Talamo jumps back on.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Dragon Flower, Sharp Holiday, 3. Aiming Straight. LONG SHOT: Public House.
