Preview: This is the final week of the summer meet. Watch for trainers who are prepping their horses either for the Los Alamitos meet (all dirt) or trying to get a grass race into their horses since there won’t be any turf racing until the end of the month at Santa Anita.

Looks like trainer Mark Glatt is looking for the shipping money today. This mare takes a drop in class anf gets leading rider Flavien Prat, who is 25% with Glatt over the last year. She will be forwardly placed.
