Race 5: #1 Bella Bianca (6-1): Trainer Todd Beattie is 28% with horses coming off a 90-plus-day layoff like this mare and he puts her on the turf for the first time. The thing that caught my eye is that he gets leading rider Antonio Gallardo to ride.
Race 9: #8 Philoctetes (6-1): This gelding broke his maiden on the turf and then won on the main track when the race was taken off the grass. Trainer Kathleen O’Connell and Ronnie Allen Jr. are a 23% combination at this meet.
Race 11: #4 She Kant Miss (5-1) (turf only) This filly finished second at this level for leading trainer Gerald Bennett. She comes from just off the pace and Fernando De la Cruz will ride.
