FIRST RACE: Purse $8,200, 3-year-olds, claiming, 350 yards.
* Comments: SUPER GEE TEE (Badilla) scored handy win vs. easier and was claimed by leading barn. BARKING FROG (C. Bautista) suffered rough trip when fourth from rail post and connections have been doing well. LETS ROCK THIS JOINT (Williams) met older rivals in last and is usually close at this level.
SECOND RACE: Purse $4,000, thoroughbred maiden claiming, 3-year-olds and up, 4 1/2 furlongs.
* Comments: MATEOTO BLANCO (A. Bautista) was extremely wide into lane when game third as favorite vs. similar. SABRINA'S SMILE (Rodriguez) was caught three wide near lead in last fourth-place try at this level. CHROMATE (Gutierrez) is capable of showing more speed than she displayed in first local try.
THIRD RACE: Purse $5,100, maiden claiming, 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds, 350 yards.
* Comments: GO MOMO GO (J. Ramirez) has earned the best speed figures and takes class drop for new barn. MALI NALI (Badilla) was bumped hard at the start of last when losing by a nose. LE GRAND (Stimpson) was fifth vs. winners in Fresno comeback and fits well here.
FOURTH RACE: Purse $5,400, Arabian allowance, 3-year-olds and up, six furlongs.
* Comments: KAN YOU RUN (Cardenas) rallied inside to beat similar in sharp time and has rapid drill since. FMR PETES SAKE (Quesada) was game third in solid Fresno stakes outing and seldom runs a poor one. RAAMBO (Arriaga) found best stride too late when fourth at shorter distance in fast time.
FIFTH RACE: Purse $5,500, maiden 2-year-olds, claiming, 300 yards.
* Comments: CHOCOLATE CHAMPUS (Williams) adds flipping halter and was third in productive race at this level recently. THE BEAUTY QUEEN (Chavez) is quick from gate and drops to this level for first time. HOOD LATCH (Badilla) has suffered troubled starts in all outings and is better than shown.
SIXTH RACE: Purse $6,100, thoroughbred claiming, fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up, 4 1/2 furlongs.
* Comments: SATURDAY WOMAN (Rodriguez) won with perfect trip vs. similar and gets a better post. LA MOZA REALEZA (A. Bautista) reared at start and came away very slow as favorite in last at this level. SWEET SPEED (Bourdieu) couldn't contain winner late in last runnerup try and seldom runs a poor one.
SEVENTH RACE: Purse $9,900, 3-year-olds and up, claiming, 350 yards.
* Comments: BOLT TA FAME (Badilla) lands hot rider after losing close photo when drifting inward late. JOANS TREAT (E. Garcia) looked strong in beating easier and has winning habit. VEDEM (Figueroa) lacked rally when well supported vs. better and needs alert start from rail post.
EIGHTH RACE: Purse $12,300, 3-year-olds, allowance, 350 yards.
* Comments: SOME WASTE TIME (E. Garcia) has sizzled in last two wins and likes the rail post. FARNSWORTH (Aceves) finished fast for second in last and beat top pick three outs ago. FEDEXER (C. Bautista) scored sharp 550-yard overnight handicap win and is well drawn.
NINTH RACE: Purse $10,900, 3-year-olds, fillies, claiming, 350 yards.
* Comments: SHOWMETHEDASH (C. Bautista) is back with own sex and gets a good post switch. DASHNON (A. Bautista) added blinkers after finishing fast for fourth vs. similar. SIGN SWEET DEBBIE (E. Garcia) finished second vs. similar from outside post and retains leading rider.
* Best Bet: SOME WASTE TIME (EIGHTH RACE).
