Analysis & Selections By: Dean Keppler @Keppskorner
Race #1: 5-Americaredwhiteblu has been a beaten favorite in last 4 starts for trainer Mark Glatt but comes in here with a Triple Beyer advantage. For the Beyer speed figure disciples and potential newbies out there, it correlates to owning the best figure in last three starts. The colt is tough to look past at short odds. 2-Brief Leaf has been freshened for Sadler and comes off a career best main track figure. Hernandez retains the mount. 4-Durante has speed and goes first off the claim for barn that has good success at Los Al.
Race #2: **OFF TURF**
Race #3: This Maiden Claiming sprint looks like a good spot to try a firster. 7-Night Party comes in with some solid a.m. drills for trainer Hector Palmer and barn is 4 for 21 (19%) with $2.84 ROI the past 2 years with debut runners. 6-Big Gift is by Mr. Big who gets a solid 15% with his 2-year-old first time starter prodigy and this filly comes in off a decent work tab for trainer Tim Yakteen. This barn may only be 2 for 35 with FTS at Del Mar but did score with 5/1 filly firster Cast Member last Saturday.
Race #4: **OFF TURF**
Race #6: **OFF TURF**
Race #7: 2-Moon Ice debuts for a sire that’s 0 for 19 with 2-year-old runners but has some sharp a.m. drills and this colt is ambitiously placed by Sadler with Prat seeing fit to ride. This barn has had success with this stake placed debut maneuver in the past and the logical conclusion is that he’s a runner or he wouldn’t be entered here. 6-Straighten Up also has a good turn of early foot and was runner-up in the Graduation Stakes. The colt is improving and makes the all-important 3rd career start.
Race #8: **OFF TURF**
