No. 1 MY GOLDEN DAY (5-1) stalked outside and kicked away as the favorite in his local return at this distance June 3, and quality conditionerTanner Tracy nabbed her out of that heat. Kevin Roman wins races with this outfit and guided this one home multiple times. 

No. 2 Kela’s Turn (9-5) captured her last two local sprints as the favorite and always runs her race at this course and distance. She has a nose for the wire and must be respected in her current form. 

No. 5 Blaze Away N Hide (6-1) won four of her last five starts including back-to-back local scores. The sophomore filly steps up to face tougher older rivals for a sharp jockey-trainer team. 

No. 3 Sabria (3-1) is usually in the mix in local dirt sprints. The early-pressing mare will need to run a bit faster to win this. 

No. 4 Snapy Gal (7-2) was part of the trifecta in eight of her last nine starts on the main track. She sports a pair of local bullets for this and might move up in her second start after a layoff.
