  • Type: CLAIMING
  • Distance: 300 yards

Race 6 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 3 Talayo, E Gasca, 4/1
  • 4 Dashin Freak, E Nicasio, 10/1
  • 5 Val Kiky, G Suarez, 4/1
  • 6 Stel Best Chance, R Lozano, 2/1
  • 7 Hawks Valentine, J Rangel, 9/2

Race 6 Prediction and Pick

This match is much more up-for-grabs than the moneyline odds might suggest (see Race 6 Tip). The 2/1 favorite, Stel Best Chance, ridden by Ruben Lozano in this race, has ten career starts, with four money finishes, one of them a win.

Race 6 Tip

One of the 10/1 longshots in this race, Remembering Frosty, has a career record virtually identical to that of the favorite: 11 career starts, with four finishes in the money, one of which was a win. With a five-year veteran jockey Alberto Zepeda at the helm, this could be Anything Can Happen Day.

  • Stel Best Chance


  • Post Time: 8:48 PM
  • Purse: $9,500
  • Type: MAIDEN
  • Distance: 300 yards
  • Conditions: For Maidens, Two Years Old

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Fractional Interest, E Gasca, 4/1
  • 2 Copauinos Best, O M Peinado, 8/1
  • 3 Transcendeur, A R Cervantes, 8/1
  • 4 Million Bound, C M Huerta, 7/2
  • 5 Young Dasher, E S Garcia, 20/1
  • 6 Constituent, R Lozano, 3/1
  • 7 Take Your Choice, V Bednar, 12/1
  • 8 Five Bar Royale, C Mendez, 10/1
  • 9 High Rock Teller, E Nicasio, 9/2

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

Might as well go with the 3/1 favorite in this match, Constituent, ridden by Ruben Lozano.

Race 7 Tip

At 20/1, Young Dasher, with zero career stats, has the same record as all the other two-year-olds in this field. Bet the minimum and cross your fingers that veteran jockey Eddie Garcia makes the difference.

  • Constituent


  • Post Time: 9:16 PM
  • Purse: $13,100
  • Distance: 300 yards
  • Conditions: For Three Year Olds Which Have Never Won Two Races

Race 8 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Sounds Good, V Bednar, 5/2
  • 2 Bad Likker, S Mendez, 6/1
  • 3 Jess a Favorite Kiss, J Rangel, 8/1
  • 4 Fayvorite Chick, R Lozano, 3/1
  • 5 Fearless N Favorite, E Nicasio, 8/1
  • 6 Come Forth, A R Cervantes, 6/1
  • 7 Quiet Talks, O Andrade, Jr., 4/1

Race 8 Prediction and Pick

Since every quarter horse in this field has won a single race, it all boils down to money finishes and jockeys. That said, I’m going with 5/2 favorite Sounds Good, with Vinnie Bednar. Sounds Good has 11 career starts and five finishes in the money. Frankly, it’s the pole position that convinced me.

Race 8 Tip

At 6/1, Come Forth is being undervalued in the moneyline. Ridden by Armando Cervantes, Come Forth has 11 career starts and 8 money finishes.

  • Sounds Good
