Post: 12:30 PM PT; $70k Maiden Special Weight going 1 1/16 miles on turf; Entries: 7

  • #1 LEISUREWEAR (5-2) gets the top selection. She has races good enough to beat this group. This one looks to be the class of the field.
  • #2 SAREEHA (8-5) appears to be a major player in this race. She goes out for the H. Graham Motion barn and gets Falvian Prat in the irons. This one projects to sit mid pack and come with one run.
  • #5 LOOKINTOGETEVEN (8-1) could be in with a shot in this race. She could be a dangerous threat to get loose on the front end.
  • #6 INFINITE EMPIRE (4-1) has races good enough to beat this group. This one will be rolling late and has a good closing kick that could get the job done here.

Selections: 1 – 2 – 5 – 6
