First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.
First race: 2 p.m.
Brady’s Kat was a stakes horse here last year. There should be plenty of speed to set up his late kick. Expenses Paid will also be rallying late. Doctor Bruce S. has won two of his past three races.

Charismatic Hope has finished third in two straight races, and in this weak group, that’s quite an achievement. Exclusive Queen was second in her last race, but she isn’t real consistent. Donna Sha Lei Lei cuts back in distance.
Private Password seems to run her best every other race. If the pattern holds, this should be a good one. Star of Wildcat takes a big drop in class. Graytful Harbor will pass horses late.
SCRATCHED: Defend Liberty.
Showmethemoneyjim drops into a level he can win at. Koala Beach is tough at this distance. Bebe Chrissy will be rallying late and can get into the trifecta.
Surfliner will likely be heavily favored, but for good reason. Davidaaronnathanee might like this distance. Sabe fits well at this level.
Cat On Base has been off since September, and he has run well off layoffs before. He is very, very fast and can win if he’s still the same horse. Majorca Gold takes a slight jump up in class after a nice win, but his new trainer doesn’t have great numbers in the first race after a claim. Big Bad Brown crushed a weaker field in his last race.
Tom Wenzel trainees Stophshoppingdebbie, Goin to the Window and Blueberry Smoothie have finished 1-2-3 in the past two stakes races for 3-year-old fillies, and there is no reason to think that will change.
Cheese Danish drops in class and the leading jockey, Juan Gutierrez, takes the mount. Strategic Patience and Clemens Brook are two tough horses who rarely run a bad race.
Worldventurer was third in his Emerald debut last month in the Coca Cola Handicap and could take a step forward. Music of My Soul won the Coca Cola stakes and is the horse to beat. Finallygotabentley doesn’t win often, but is a talented horse.
Fist Full of Green and Brock Says were a nose apart in their last race as they battled for second. This time, they have a good chance to be battling for the win. Ryan’s Argument ran a dud as the odds-on favorite in his last race.
Big Question has lost three times as the favorite, including the last race when he seemed to regress some. A return to the form of his previous race should be enough to win this. Financial Officer also has a good chance, as the top two seem to be a step above the rest. Withoutgettinglost was third in his last start and cuts back in distance.
BEST BET: Surfliner.
