The David Braddy Barn sends out two in this race the 4 – BEAUTIFUL DAY and the 9 -NATIONALIST. I think they both have a good shot here to break their maiden. Manuel Vasquez decided to stay on BEAUTIFUL DAY today which has been knocking at the door is the money 3 out of her last 4 starts. 2 out of 3 times in the money over this surface, as well as 2 for 2 in the money, going this distance. Dropping down to maiden claimers of 12500 with being the main speed in this race going to be really tough to beat here.
2- ALL AMERICAN JEWEL. coming off two 3rd place finishes only losing my 1 length should be closing strong coming down the stretch.
6- DELIA’S PRIDE- Cutting back to 1 mile which ran 4th only loosing be 3 ½ lengths for maiden 16k. Apprentice jockey Burgos stays aboard road well last time.
2 starts back only losing
10 BETTIN ONNA KITTEN going out for the Orseno Barn has had trouble in her last two outings, Two back got slammed at the gate if she gets a clean break should be right in the thick of things here. 1- STUBLE JOY is going out 2nd time off the claim for the Kathy Mongeon Barn
My PICKS- 4-2-6-10
8- CHASING ARTIE debuts with a series of bullet workouts showing on the dirt at GP West, and the turf at Palm Meadows. Tyler Gaffalione handles the outside draw. Wesley Ward is known for getting his 2 years old are ready to run.
4 JUST RIGHT MIKE 2nd time out for the dynamic duel Yates/ Vasquez. Finished 3rd in her debut running pretty good against a real tough 2-year-old field think he steps up today with having a race under his belt.

MY PICKS- 8-12-4-1
5- BLUE BLUE ICE – Going out 2nd off the claim with drop-in class for the Sweezey Barn and getting Luis Saez back aboard where he won on this filly 2 back for claimers of 12500 also getting off the 7 horse to ride this filly. She is 7 for 8 in the money going this distance and 7 for 10 in the money over this surface. Should stalk the pace here.
2 PEACE CONTROL going out 2nd time out of the claim for the Barboza Barn. Won off the claim 2 back for claimers of 625. Where then jumped her up to claimers of 20k were she didn’t run that bad finishing 4th by 8th but the Barboza barn must have seen something jumping up in class that much. Very Dangerous here back on the dropdown.
1 PROBABLY GRACE- won easily last time out 1st time off the claim for the Rivelli Barn for claimers of 6200 3 for 5 lifetimes in the money. A lot of speed in this race which should set the race up perfectly for her. Lebron gets the call again after winning with her last time.

8 -JEEKER JOE goes first time out for the D’angelo Barn with getting Tyler Gaffalione Aboard coming off a long layoff but had some good works and is 2 for 6 on the turf. Blinkers will off today where he has been running with them for most of his career.
7 -FAYEZ Drops down in class from maiden 16k with getting rider change to Martinez which brings the weight down to 112 pounds last 2 races weren’t too good but before that always showed up to run if he can get back to racing like that should be right in the thick of things.
