#3 TIGERBEACH (4-1) invades from Northern California for sharp shipping trainer Isidro Tamayo. The entry level allowance dropper turns back and is 4-for-6 in turf sprints. He should be heard from late under Tiago Pereira.


#4 Erotic (4-1) is a late runner turning back and returning to turf. He rallied from last to finish a solid 3rd at this course/distance Oct. 14. Joel Rosario takes the call.


#6 Blackout (5-2) drops out of the optional claiming ranks and Flavien Prat strings along. The versatile gelding adds blinkers and is 0-for-8 at this distance.


#1 Portando (6-1) is a competent turf sprinter exiting a place finish on a wet track at Los Alamitos Dec. 6. He will probably save ground stalking the pace.


#8 Via Egnatia (7-2) turns back and drops in class for Richard Baltas, and his new rider Umberto Rispoli has looked good on the turf course.
