Golden Gate Fields in Berkeley, California, continues its schedule of turf and all-weather track racing Friday, May 29, 2020.

The forecast for the Bay Area calls for more cloudy skies, a slight (10%) chance of rain, temperatures in the low 70s, and winds around 20 mph.

My Golden Gate Fields picks for today follow below. Post time for the first race is 12:45 PM (PDT).

RACE 6

  • Post Time: 3:26 PM
  • Purse: $13,000
  • Type: CLAIMING $6,250
  • Distance: 5-1/2 furlongs (all-weather track)
  • Conditions: For California Bred Or California Sired Fillies Three Years Old

Race 6 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Emma’s a Beast, J J Hernandez, 7/2
  • 2 Trouble N Paradise, K Frey, 5/2
  • 3 Spicy Perfection, S R Amador, 2/1
  • 4 Mamanuca, J Espinoza, 20/1
  • 5 Teaspoon of Pepper, F T Alvarado, 12/1
  • 6 Popular Appeal, C Martinez, 8/1
  • 7 Perfect Sale, W Antongeorgi III, 4/1

Race 6 Prediction and Pick

I like the third-favored (7/2) filly in this race: Emma’s a Beast, with Juan J. Hernandez in the irons. This filly has moneyed four times in her six career starts, with two of those wins. That, along with the pole position and the winningest jockey in this race aboard, makes it hard to see any other outcome but a happy one.

Race 6 Tip

I see some other potential winners in this race, but their odds simply aren’t high enough to make the wager worth the risk.

Pick
  • Emma’s a Beast
    7/2

RACE 7

  • Post Time: 3:56 PM
  • Purse: $19,000
  • Type: STARTER ALLOWANCE $50,000
  • Distance: 5-1/2 furlongs (all-weather track)
  • Conditions: For Fillies Three Years Old Which Have Started For A Claiming Price Of $50,000 Or Less And Which Have Never Won Two Races

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Violent Speed, J J Hernandez, 9/2
  • 2 Sadie Bluegrass, R Gonzalez, 7/5
  • 3 Miss Ski, C Martinez, 5/1
  • 4 Toni Two Pocket, A Gomez, 10/1
  • 5 Daniel the Dreamer, K E Orozco, 4/1
  • 6 Zelaia, F T Alvarado, 10/1
  • 7 Tippy Top, K Frey, 8/1

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

I’m sticking with the 7/5 favorite in this race, Sadie Bluegrass, with Ricardo Gonzalez in the irons.  This filly only has four career starts, but she finished in the money for three of them—and two were wins. Expect this race to be tight.

Race 7 Tip

Zelaia at 10/1 is slightly undervalued. This filly moneyed in three of her six career starts, with one win. Her pilot this race is Frank Alvarado, who has the chops to make another win happen.

Pick
  • Sadie Bluegrass
    7/5

RACE 8

  • Post Time: 4:26 PM
  • Purse: $19,000
  • Type: CLAIMING
  • Distance: 5-1/2 furlongs (all-weather track)
  • Conditions: For Fillies And Mares Three Years Old And Upward

Race 8 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Princess Ashlyn, R Gonzalez, 3/1
  • 2 Sweet Rafaela, SCRATCHED
  • 3 Kelly, J Couton, 4/1
  • 4 Sari’s Tiger, D C Lopez, 15/1
  • 5 Brilliant Bird, J J Hernandez, 7/2
  • 6 Lucky Antares, F T Alvarado, 12/1
  • 7 Lucky Christiana, W Antongeorgi III, 9/2
  • 8 Meet Miss Kitty, S R Amador, 10/1

Race 8 Prediction and Pick

I like the 3/1 favorite in this race—Princess Ashlyn with veteran jockey Ricardo Gonzalez aboard. This eight-year-old mare has a very respectable record: 21 money finishes (nine of them wins) in 35 career starts. Expect some strong competition from Brilliant Bird, ridden by Juan J. Hernandez.

Race 8 Tip

None of the longer odds entries are worth the risk.

Pick
  • Princess Ashlyn
    3/1
