First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.


First race: 6:45 p.m.

1 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,975, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $4,000
3Advancement J Whitaker3124
5Doctor Bruce S. L Camacho-Flores5/2124
2Southern Influence D Lopez9/5118
1Curvitude R Richard10124
4Galway Guinness R Bowen7/2118

Advancement turned around his sagging form when dropping to this level in his last race, finishing second. Doctor Bruce S. is better than his last race indicates. Southern Influence has two wins and a second in three career starts.

2 6 furlongs, purse $7,450, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $5,000/$4,000
3Buds a Flyin I Enriquez2124
4Bid for Pride R Bowen7/2124
5Majorca Gold N Chaves5/2124
1Rainier Missile R Richard9/2122
2Hard Slider D Lopez4120

Buds a Flyin looks like the lone speed horse in the race. Bid for Pride is 1 for 1 on a sloppy track, and it might be mucky for this race. Majorca Gold is a solid fit at this level.

3 51/2 furlongs, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $5,000
7Count Trevor A Sanguinetti6118
4Brother Greg E Kubinova1118
3Big Black Cat L Camacho-Flores3118
1Playsummusic R Bowen10118
2Lots of Prayers R Richard8118
5K P Brilly M Iammarino20118
6Takeitnumberthree R Camacho15124
8Everydayimhustlin J Whitaker20118

Count Trevor gets a much better post after being stuck with No. 11 in his last race and racing wide. Brother Greg will be the likely favorite after a solid second-place finish in a field of 10 at this level. Big Black Cat has been third in each of his first three races.

4 61/2 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500
1Just Zoom Will Do M Iammarino15124
4Harbor Wind D Hoonan3124
6Master's Bluff R Richard4118
2Cresent McGain J Matias10124
3Wolfgang C Doll15 124
SCRItsafineredwine SCRATCHED--
5Tenatious Spirit A Sanguinetti15124
7All My Friends D Lopez5/2124
8Cavanagh Bay I Enriquez7/2124

This is a tough, even race. Just Zoom Will Do drops to the bottom level after losing as the favorite. Harbor Wind makes his first start for trainer Rigoberto Velasquez after being claimed, and the trainer has a good record with horses in their first start after a claim. Master’s Bluff won at a slightly higher level when plunging in class for his last race.

5 6 furlongs, purse $5,250, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500
1A K Racer N Chaves12124
6Olympic Lights I Enriquez8/5124
5Kool Comic D Hoonan8124
2Mr. Top Kat L Lopez5124
3Wild Hoss J Zunino20124
SCRMarvin's Magic SCRATCHED--
4One Lucky Hoss R Bowen9/2124
7Showmethemoneyjim A Sanguinetti10124

A K Racer won his past two starts at this level, but he is 0 for 2 on off tracks. Olympic Lights has won 16 of 43 starts at Emerald. Kool Comic also has a decent chance to win.

6 6 furlongs, purse $10,500, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $10,000/$8,000
1Chaching Pete J Gutierrez3124
7Tribaltique I Enriquez5/2120
3Chicks Dig Him E Kubinova9/2120
2Gone Digital D Lopez20120
4Jade Road R Bowen6124
5City Twister J Zunino5124
6Davos R Richard7/2120

Chaching Pete might get an easy early lead. Tribaltique takes a big drop in class. Chicks Dig Him has been second in three straight starts.

7 1 mile, purse $4,400, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500
6Ourshanghaiexpress E Kubinova8/5118
4Crescent Bar R Bowen4124
7Tahoe's Prize L Camacho-Flores7/2118
1Spiker C Doll12124
2Peakaboot Postette N Chaves10124
3Diamond Peak A Sanguinetti15118
5Laachem J Zunino9/2124

Ourshanghaiexpress has a good chance to lead the entire way. Cresent Bar isn’t consistent, but can win this race if it is one of his good days. Tahoe’s Prize will be rallying late.

BEST BET: Buds a Flyin
