5 Crush On You D Lopez 9-5 117
1 Hey Lil Missy G Mitchell 5-2 117
3 Agirlsgottalive E Kubinova 4-1 120
4 One Smart Girl L Camacho-Flores 8-1 123
6 Parkers Gibsongirl A Sanguinetti 15-1 120

Parker’s Pearl fell back too far after a bad start in her last race. She gets a jockey change and can improve in a very competitive race. Crush On You was second in that race as the favorite, unable to fend off Hey Lil Missy.

2 6 furlongs, purse $5,700, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $3,500

4 Wedge of Gold G Mitchell 3-1 123

2 Premo Jewel L Camacho-Flores 6-1 123
5 Jordans Jem J Matias 9-2 123
6 Be There for Me J Zunino 8-1 123

Wedge of Gold almost always runs hard, and it seems like she is ready for her best race. Come On Cozzene and Stolen Forum have each won two straight races.

3 Colton’s First A Sanguinetti 3-1 118
5 Lean Cozzene R Bowen 8-1 124
6 Windshadows M Cardoso 15-1 124

Another good race where many are in great form. Whiskey Prince returns to the distance in which he is 3 for 3, and he has won both times Leslie Mawing has ridden him. Buds a Flyin hasn’t had a great season, but he has 11 lifetime wins at Emerald. Marvin’s Magic has won three straight races.

4 6 furlongs, purse $11,650, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $12,500/$10,000

1 Carving D Lopez 2-1 120
5 He’s a Cruiser L Mawing 5-2 124
4 Spot of Salt E Kubinova 3-1 120
2 Northern Poptart R Richard 7-2 120
3 Parkers Bluff G Mitchell 8-1 124
6 Financial Officer J Whitaker 12-1 120

Carving plunges in class. Early last year, he was considered the best 3-year-old at the track before tough times set in. He’s a Cruiser won five straight races earlier in the meet. Then, after two poor races, he hasn’t raced in six weeks. Maybe he will return refreshed. Spot of Salt was a close third as the favorite in a similar race last month.

5 1 mile, purse $10,300, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $12,500/$10,000

2 Open a Tap J Gutierrez 6-1 114
4 Soul Intent J Matias 12-1 124
5 Del Siete Leguas R Bowen 3-1 120
7 So Legit R Richard 8-1 120
SCR Ionize Scratched - -

Tale Spinner drops in class to the level he won easily at two races ago. Bluegrass Fox Trot has been an easy winner the previous two times Mawing rode him. Tros is a hard-trying horse who has been in the money in five of eight starts.

6 6 furlongs, purse $10,500, 3-year-old, claiming $10,000/$8,000

2 Kahului Bluff R Richard 3-1 122

5 Tribal Mystic D Lopez 12-1 119
6 Freedomofthehills J Zunino 8-1 118
7 Harbor Design J Rosales 10-1 122

Kahului Bluff should get a nice stalking trip behind what should be a very fast pace. Charlie’s Gold drops in class after running a dud as the 3-2 favorite. Mister Breeze drops in class.

7 5 furlongs, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $5,000

4 One Cheezy Dude G Mitchell 8-5 118
2 Touch of Danzig J Rosales 9-2 118
3 Hearts Harbor D Lopez 3-1 118
1 Robins a Flying J Zunino 8-1 118
5 Plan A L Camacho-Flores 15-1 118
6 Great Call Mike L Gonzalez 10-1 124
7 Shadow Code R Bowen 5-1 118

One Cheezy Dude has been second in three straight races, and this field might be the easiest he has faced. Touch of Danzig has had some gaps in his training, but some of his workouts for his career debut have been good. Heart’s Harbor can get into the trifecta.

Best bet: One Cheezy Dude.
