1 Cane Seeker R Bowen 5-2 124
3 It’s Our Pleasure J Whitaker 9-5 124
2 Making Fire L Mawing 3-1 121
4 He’s a Goblin D Lopez 4-1 121
5 Who’s Laughing R Richard 5-1 121

Cane Seeker moves inside to a much better post position and drops to the level of his last win, four races ago. His stablemate, It’s Our Pleasure, easily won in a small field of four in his last race, just more more than a month ago. Making Fire will be tough if he can handle this distance after running in sprints.

2 1 mile, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $5,000

4 No Claim Will Do J Gutierrez 2-1 118
2 Alaazwho L Mawing 9-2 118
1 Cats Ego J Zunino 5-2 124
3 Stoneman E Kubinova 10-1 118
5 Plan A L Camacho-Flores 15-1 118
6 Indian John Hill D Lopez 10-1 118
7 Shadow Code R Bowen 4-1 118

No Claim Will Do was scratched out of a race Saturday to run in this one. He went too fast too early in his first try at a mile and gets a new jockey. Alaazwho was claimed out of his last race, when a poor start derailed his chances. Cats Ego invades from Northern California and looks good against this group, but his trainer was 0 for 39 to start the year.

3 5 furlongs, purse $5,300, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500

3 Atta Boy Lucky D Lopez 2-1 121
1 Direct Cost J Whitaker 3-1 124
4 Brother Greg E Kubinova 5-2 121
SCR Our Sella Scratched - -
2 Playsummusic J Rosales 8-1 121
5 Decisive Fact L Gonzalez 7-2 121

Atta Boy Lucky was second in his last start and drops in class. He might not get caught with a similar effort. Direct Cost also drops in class. Brother Greg has a good chance to get into the trifecta.

4 5 furlongs, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000

4 I Thought So L Mawing 2-1 117
2 My Mom’s Carol I Enriquez 5-2 117
6 You Send Me J Whitaker 5-1 123
1 Dubai Kiss R Richard 8-1 123
3 Oh Glorious Day J Zunino 10-1 117
5 Bellesareno J Rosales 10-1 117
7 Shes Icee Too L Camacho-Flores 6-1 123

It is interesting that I Thought So, a $24,000 sale purchase last year, makes her career debut at the $5,000 claiming level. She has been working out fairly well. My Mom’s Carol drops in class after two wide trips in Northern California. You Send Me has some early speed.

5 6 furlongs, purse $7,875, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming weight for age $10,000/$8,000

3 Uptownfreddybrown E Kubinova 5-2 118

7 Tactical Strike G Mitchell 3-1 118
1 Oregon Stater J Rosales 9-2 118
2 Diamond Drop J Zunino 10-1 124
4 One Cheezy Dude L Camacho-Flores 10-1 115
5 Inviting Roman I Enriquez 6-1 118

Uptownfreddybrown drops in class and should do well against this group. Grindster also drops in class. Tactical Strike lost by a half-length in his last race but was 6¼ lengths in front of the third-place horse.

6 6 furlongs, purse $5,700, 3-year-olds and up, WCL $3,500

2 Regal Valid R Richard 2-1 124
4 War Wizard L Gonzalez 8-5 121
1 Timeonurhands D Lopez 6-1 121
3 Jade Road L Mawing 5-1 124
SCR Fine and Rare Scratched - -
5 Heza Witch Doctor J Whitaker 4-1 121

Regal Valid looked very good in winning his last start. War Wizard is dangerous when he gets the early lead. Timeonurhands makes his Emerald Downs debut after running well in Phoenix.

7 6 furlongs, purse $5,400, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500

7 Ruler of the Tribe R Bowen 2-1 123
2 Stolen Forum R Richard 8-1 123
1 She’sontopyodeling J Gutierrez 9-2 123
3 Snuffin D Lopez 8-1 123
4 Sixteen Reasons L Mawing 5-1 123
5 Cookies and Milk J Rosales 15-1 123
6 Kiss Em E Kubinova 5-2 123

Ruler of the Tribe will try to atone for finishing third as the 6-5 favorite in her Emerald Downs debut last month. Stolen Forum returns to Emerald Downs, where she is normally competitive. She’sontopyodeling will be rallying late.

8 1 mile, purse $14,800, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $20,000/$18,000

4 Dare Me Devil D Lopez 9-2 120
1 Assessment G Mitchell 2-1 117
2 He’s a Cruiser L Mawing 7-5 120
3 Surfliner R Richard 5-1 120
5 Chu and I J Whitaker 5-1 117

Dare Me Devil did not like the sloppy surface in his last start, but he should rebound today. Assessment, the winner of the 2009 Longacres Mile, is in good form. He’s a Cruiser has won five straight, but this is a step up in competition.

9 5 furlongs, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000

4 Bell Wether R Bowen 4-1 123
3 Musical Delight L Camacho-Flores 7-2 117
6 Aliciasfirecracker A Sanguinetti 3-1 123
1 Photo Safari J Whitaker 6-1 117
2 Game Kick D Lopez 5-1 117
5 Kanya Win C Doll 10-1 123
7 Indagreenandbeyond R Richard 5-1 117
8 She’s My Favorite E Kubinova 15-1 123

Bell Wether makes her career debut for Tom Wenzel, who in previous years did well with horses making their first starts. Musical Delight was hurt by a poor start in a 10-horse field in her last race and should rebound. Aliciasfirecracker has been in the money in her past three starts but has yet to win in 15 tries.

Best bet: Cane Seeker.
