SHANGHAI VOYAGE (Boag) is back on preferred dirt surface after fading in last two Golden Gate synthetic track tries and loves to win races.

     LUCKY TOMMY (Boag) broke slow before battling three wide near lead by the 3/8-pole in last Santa Anita outing and meets much easier here. SCENE ENUF (Santos) was three wide for the lead into the stretch of last neck setback and has improved with each start.

3RD RACE: Purse $9,480, claiming, 3 year olds, 300 yards.
     TLM STREAKBOO (DeAlba) has come away super in last two solid tries since adding the flipping halter and barn has been hot.

FLYIN THE WAVES (Arriaga) took tight win photo in last over recent $4,000 first-place finisher Ettago That and new trainer does well with first-out claims.

     MAKING YOU FAMOUS (Sanchez) didn’t run her to solid 12.2 gate drill in futurity trial debut when bumped several times early.

     NEXT BOOK (Guce) was well positioned near the lead when beating recent Santa Anita $8,000 winner Outthink’em in last and should get similar trip from outside post here. SWISS GAME (Boag) defeated two next-out winners in last wire-to-wire victory at this distance and can survive pace pressure.

     MR GALAN (DeAlba) was much improved in last nose loss when breaking fast vs. winner taking a key class drop..SWITCHEDBYE (Roman) finally had an alert start in last neck loss as the 4-5 favorite and gets positive class hike by new barn. BURNING FIRE (J Nicasio) drops two class levels while exiting the rail and was distant fourth two outs ago vs. runnerup who since beat allowance company.
 
8TH RACE: Purse $9,570, claiming, 3 year olds and up, 330 yards.
