  1. Big Victory             Owned by Riggins Racing                        Baze R A

Comes off a nice win against Optional Claimers at WO.  Went gate to wire to win by 1/2 length.  Prior to that he ran against open Allowance company where he finished second and seventh.  He likes to show early pace, but at times can gobble up in the stretch run.  Shortens the distance today till seven furlongs.

  1. Tophatbigcigar      Owned by End Run Farm                        Desormeaux K J

Just won by a head in the Kona Stakes Grade II going 6 1/2 furlongs on the dirt.  Prior to that he had been running on the sod, and was not performing that well.  This is his first win going a sprint distance.  A great prep race for today’s race.

     3. Fast Review             Owned by Sanny Village                           Leparoux J R 

Just pulled off two second place finishes in Grade III company.  His last second place finish came in the Vigil Stakes Grade III.  Prior to that race he finished second in Commonwealth Grade III.  Three back he finished third in The Toboggan Grade III.  He is right back at it with a step up to Grade I today.

  1. Gsin                           Owned by Team 7 Illusions                       Moran D

His last race he ran fifth by a dead heat in the LA Stakes Grade III.  Prior to that he ran against ON Breds in the Providence Stakes where he finished second by a nose.  Three back he won the Cartier Stakes a $125.000 Non Graded Stakes.  This is a big step up.

  1. Hardline                  Owned by Downwind Stables                  Toledo J

Finished second by a nose in the Grade II Californian Stakes.  Prior to that he ran fifth in the Grade II CT Classic. He is switching back to sprint distances.  He has never won at a sprint distance, so this should prove interesting.

  1. Moon Landling         Owned by Mb Stables                         Albarado R J

Two back he won the Decathlon Stakes going six furlongs at MTH.  His last race he ran in the Aristides BC Grade III going six furlongs.  He had passed hands a couple of times as he was first sold in April for $165.000 and then one month later was sold for $150.00.  Stepping up again here.
