race 1  average clarity

2  Ceiling Crusher   Luis Mendez wins his fair share of the early baby races and that includes with 1st out of the box two year old my book this filly not only owns the best (proven) pedigree in the field but also the sharpest a.m. work.......and she draws the highly sought after J J Hernandez

4  Cocktail Princess   solid open company MSW debut 5 weeks ago and now gets to face Cal-breds........she showed good 1/4 speed so look for her to be in the mix from the get go

1  Rose Girl

6  It's Saul Right


race 2  below average clarity

1  Code Duello   turf efforts for this filly when she has been on firm turf are decent and her best to date (2nd in a $50K Stakes at GG) was run sprint to route.......same set up for today and with a big jock upgrade especially if Rispoli can get his mojo back

7  Donic   very good history racing at 6 and 6 1/2F with the blinkers on any surface (6 2 2 0 1 1)........not much speed signed up and she owns some.......reassuring stout 3rd best of 63 4F drill put in since her latest race........trainer Cerin has had a dynamite 2022

6  Meet the Sheriff

4  Commander Khai

8  Cosmo


race 3 average clarity

3  Maxim Moment   solid move forward 2nd out since D'Amato took over the training of this four year old......race fig was a length better than par for today's slightly higher level of maiden claiming......first time running long since the blinkers went on 5 races back......she likely will get loose on the lead for the 1st time in her career.........hard to ask for more than that

2  Candy for Carmel   so so 1st at a route and same goes for her 1st on the sod.......but 1st time racing with Papaprodromou is another thing as the trainer is having the best year that I can recall since taking over The Racing Digest......and he has been red hot the last 10 days........dangerous sort

4  Amadmadworld


race 4  below average clarity

(9 AE  No Limitation has a shot if he draws in from the AE list)

2  Pass Interference   Ryan Hanson is rather reliable when a given horse of his shows good works and this 1st time starter sure has shown some solid a.m. that his last 3 works were out of the gate and were progressively better........underrated turf rider in Curatolo aboard might help the price

5  Curly Esa   gelding ran a somewhat dull effort in his last race but his race 2 back was the 1 April race he was 4 wide on the turn and still ran 2nd 1 1/4L behind a next out winner........and the race was at today's 6 1/2F distance.......solid jock these days in Baze sticks around......big shot at the circle of joy if he is up to a rebound

4  Maynard

6  Missed Call

3  Sai Con


race 5  average clarity

6  Liberalism   mare has shown good early speed from outside posts in the past........latest race 1st time with the bug up might have been her best lifetime dirt race and she ran an adjusted fig that is 3L better than par.......good to see Emily Ellingwood stay put

2  Red Panty Night   our top selection was much more impressive when facing off with this filly on May 8th but the cut back in distance to 5 1/2F should aid this gal's chances as she is (2 1 1 0) at the distance and both efforts were with Gonzalez up.......and two sharp drills hint she might move forward 2nd out after a layoff

1  Roses for Suzzett


race 6  average clarity

6  Flint Stroll   poor trips by Cedillo in this gelding's last two races or instead of two 2nds (DQ from 1st in one of them) this four your old could have two straight wins.......both Santucci figs earned are 2L better than par.......surprising Cedillo remains put.....he best get it done today

2  Nineeleventurbo   seems best racing at today's 9F distance and he should get decent trip sitting up close and saving ground similar to his last race where he graduated in style with a 2 3/4L win.......T C Baze wisely stays put

7  Halfbarberbingie

1  Spirit Maker


race 7  average clarity

4  Redline   Keith Desormeaux colt is a perfect 2 for 2 since going on Lasix and his last race which was at 7F on the dirt fits extremely well fig/effort wise if of course he can handle his 1st around two turns as well.........pedigree for a route is below average but considering how well he just ran at 7 panels and the fact this is only a one mile dirt route one would surmise he can get the distance unless he absolutely dislikes coping with another turn

3  No Hang Charlie   two lifetime wins for this gelding when getting plenty of time between starts.......both winning races fit well here.......last race 3 months red hot trainer takes over this ex Baltas charge and Papaprodromou's new runner sure is working as though he will fire another big "fresh" race

2  Americaredwhiteblu


race 8  average clarity

7  Big Attraction   off slow in her MSW debut which was the 10 April version of this one mile grass race.......the MSW race turned out to be a key race with 1st and 2nd coming back to win their next race and this filly was only 5 1/4 behind the winner despite 4 or 5 lengths of trip trouble..........and since her debut her a.m. work is markedly better hinting her debut muscled her up

2  Sensible Move   love the cut back in distance for this Cal-bred filly who beat 4 of 7 foes in her last which was her 1st route race and at 9F which is tough to get the 9F first time you go "long"........bug Emily Ellingwood remains up and for an apprentice she rides the turf quite well and she is rather hot over the last couple of weeks

6  Claddagh

9  Warren's Showgirl

5  Tiz My Princess
