Post time: 7 p.m. Best bet: Second Street City (6th race). Best play: 50-cent Pick 4 (5th): 12367910/1/1257/157, $42.   1 1 mile. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse $7,000. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/Estrella de Oro, Franco, Silva 123 3-1 2/Dashtime, Dieguez, Rarick 123 9-2 3/Kellys Marq, Goodwin, Kirby 123 5-1 4/Sir Ghazi, Delorme, Porter 123 5-2 5/Joshua's Journey, Trimble, Lund 123 8-1 6/Dos Angels Warrior, Butler, Cheloha 123 6-1 7/I'marowdyredneck, Walker, Boarman 123 6-1 ESTRELLA DE ORO will be the one to catch to start the season coming off the rail. Speedster won by more than nine lengths last out running shorter under a mild urging. Not really bred for this distance but could get easy lead to hold on. JOSHUA'S JOURNEY should be sitting close off the top selection and ready to attack if the pace-setter can't hold the lead. Taking a slight drop in class coming in. I'MAROWDYREDNECK is also taking a slight drop but has been digressing in his past four races. Trainer Boarman is 2-for-3 in sprint/route angle, so maybe he needs to stretch out to find his form again.   2 5 1/2 furlongs. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse $8,000. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/The Quinnster, Velazquez, Olesiak 118 6-1 2/Forener, Butler, Donlin 123 3-1 3/Patriate, Trimble, Johnson 123 5-2 4/Cornetto, Riggs, Danger 123 5-1 5/Julian Love, Keith, Rosin 123 9-2 6/Last Basket, Frink, Berg 123 4-1 FORENER will be running late in what could be the perfect fast-pace scenario for him. Has two decent works coming in and is reunited with jockey Butler, whom he won with two back closing fast. PATRIATE has done his best running on this track. Should be on or near the lead but concern has been weakening late in shorter distances recently. Gelding was a beaten favorite last out but always figures to be in the hunt. THE QUINNSTER will be running his first sprint race in two years. Has good tactical speed to get off the rail and avoid being pinched from the outside. Needs a good start to win. JULIAN LOVE should be a decent price who won twice here in 2011 with Lori Keith in the saddle. A wide-open race.   3 5 1/2 furlongs. State bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse $18,560. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/Lambda Nu, Hernandez, Rengstorf 119 5-1 2/Lions Court, Keith, Hanson 119 9-2 3/Bear Island, Riggs, Wekseth 123 6-1 4/Sam Wayne, Castro, Riecken 119 12-1 5/Vic the Kick, Luark, Bethke 123 7-2 6/Sue's Stormy, Walker, Rengstorf 119 8-1 7/Affirmed Cure, Velazquez, Peters 114 12-1 8/Eurasian, Rivera, Oliver 123 5-1 9/Ragged Edge, Butler, Rhone 119 8-1 EURASIAN ships in from the West Coast where he was facing much better. More of a realistic assignment here in breaking his maiden. Has good outside post to stalk speed to the inside. SAM WAYNE ships up from Oaklawn Park, where he has been facing tougher foes. Threw in a clunker last out after running three decent races. Looks to get back in competitive form running from far back. RAGGED EDGE is a first-timer for trainer Rhone, who does extremely well in debuts. Workouts don't knock you over but could come out firing with Butler at the helm.   4 5 1/2 furlongs. State bred. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse $18,560. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/Jackraymondjames, Luark, Bethke 119 8-1 2/Thepointman, Velazquez, Rengstorf 114 20-1 3/Bold Raider, Arroyo, Cole 123 15-1 4/Quote to Cash, Goodwin, Robertson 119 8-1 5/Traffic Skier, Keith, Hanson 123 5-1 6/Limo, Stevens, Van Winkle 123 6-1 7/Orfan Ole, Rivera Jr., Gourneau 119 20-1 8/Bobble Doit, Butler, Rhone 119 5-2 9/Prairie Man, Delorme, Donlin 119 10-1 10/Mack's Tiger Paw, Riggs, Biehler 119 9-2 QUOTE TO CASH The 8-1 morning line is a nice price for a Mac Robertson horse, but it probably won't last at post time. Didn't show much in first effort but should improve and it won't take too much upswing to beat this field. MACK'S TIGER PAW has been training sharply for trainer Biehler, who's hitting 20 percent in new shooters. Work habits suggests he's ready to fire from the outside post. LIMO has been training consistently and fired a bullet in last work. Had his best race to date when he grabbed the early lead and held on for second. Jockey Scott Stevens might pilot him to the lead.   5 5 1/2 furlongs. State bred fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse $20,480. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/Pleasant Life, Keith, Hanson 123 10-1 2/Gracen Racen, Riggs, Scherbenske 119 9-2 3/Somerset Swinger, Bell, Robertson 119 3-1 4/Final Moment, Butler, Rhone 119 10-1 5/Go Go Jill, Castro, Rengstorf 119 8-1 6/Jills Summer Raine, Stevens, Oliver 119 4-1 7/Depeche, Rivera, Oliver 123 10-1 8/Molly McCracken, Dieguez, Sheehan 119 12-1 9/Smarty Prance, Walker Jr., Rhone 123 12-1 10/Stormy Tara, Goodwin, Scherer 119 10-1 JILLS SUMMER RAINE has steady works coming in, including bullet in last work. Ran for place money last out here in a September stakes race before losing the lead short of the finish. Probable pace-setter but has ability to sit back if needs to. SOMERSET SWINGER is the one to beat for the Bell/Robertson team, but I think this race could prove to have an upset winner. Filly won in lone start here last year in an impressive four-length victory. Concern of only two works since that race, so might need a race. PLEASANT LIFE is one of the horses who could bust a lot of Pick 4 tickets if pace turns too heated up front. Like the turf to dirt and route-sprint angles here.   6 6 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming $16,000. Purse $17,000. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/Second Street City, Butler, Scherer 119 9-5 2/Princess Freebie, Riggs, Berndt 119 8-5 3/Brave Talk, Franco, Silva 119 8-1 4/Blumin Memories, Delorme, Cranwell 123 10-1 5/Congrats and Roses, Bell, Robertson 119 5-1 6/Mesa Mirage, Keith, Hanson 119 6-1 SECOND STREET CITY should love the speedsters knocking heads up front and hopefully pick up the pieces. Finished well last out to grab runner-up against tougher rivals at Prairie Meadows. The shippers from Iowa did well here in the beginning of the meet last season. Gets Butler for the ride. PRINCESS FREEBIE is the morning line favorite coming up from Hawthorne. Took second as favorite last try in a class-dropper. Might need the change of scenery to find last year's form. CONGRATS AND ROSES is a consistent runner for the Robertson barn who could pull off a mild upset. Sharp drills coming in and Robertson excels in long layoffs.   7 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse $16,000. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/Aikman, Keith, Brinson 118 9-2 2/Bodacat, Franco, Silva 123 6-1 3/Whiskey Decision, Delorme, Porter 123 8-1 4/Mischief Mo, Bell, Pfeifer 123 6-1 5/Musicstreet Menace, Walker Jr., Scherer 123 9-2 6/Great Exuma, Hernandez, Riecken 123 5-1 7/Stalking Lion, Butler, Rengstorf 118 4-1 8/Last Ride Cowboy, Velazquez, White 118 6-1 STALKING LION could prove tough stalking from the outside keeping an eye on the speed to the inside of him. Ran for show last out but never really made a threatening move at Prairie Meadows. Won last race at Canterbury drawing away by six lengths in a short sprint. BODACAT won last out on the turf in deep closing fashion. Runs just as well on the dirt and has hit the board in seven of past eight races. Franco was at the helm in all of them. AIKMAN could be the wiseguy bet as a probable lone speed stretching out for the first time off the rail. Clay Brinson is a high-percentage trainer with this angle.   8 5 1/2 furlongs. Fillies and mares. 3 year-olds and up. Claiming $5,000. Purse $7,000. #/Horse, Jockey, Trainer Wt. Odds 1/Dubaidora, Rivera, Biehler 119 2-1 2/Ticklemeterrellmo, Dieguez, Rarick 123 15-1 3/Ridgeofstone, Trimble, Berg 123 8-1 4/Skipping On By, Velazquez, Wekseth 118 20-1 5/Flame It, Franco, Silva 119 9-2 6/Halo's Tide, Castro, Sheehan 123 20-1 7/Ms Manana, Riggs, Berndt 119 3-1 8/Next Top Model, Arroyo, Murtough 123 30-1 9/Sunday Princess, Delorme, Porter 123 15-1 10/Executive Anna, Butler, Scott 123 10-1 11/Cherryful Lady, Rivera Jr., Canchari 119 20-1 DUBAIDORA comes back after tiring in the mud nearly two weeks ago sprinting a half-furlong longer. Should love the rail, the cutback and the fast track. If filly runs like she did at Oaklawn three races back, she could blow away this field. FLAME IT had a bobbled start last out but recovered to run second. Drops from allowance race and is a dangerous threat. MS MANANA also had a bad start in the mud last out and never really improved position. Needs only to get a clean gate start to be in the mix at the end. Most likely a three-horse race.   Follow Love: exoticplays.com or @StribLove on Twitter
