1 4-1 On Fire Baby Joe Johnson Gary Hartlage

Action’s Line: Multiple Grade 2 winner at this track has been pointed here for a long time.

2 5-2 Grace Hall Javier Castellano Anthony Dutrow

Action’s Line: Grade 1-placed over this strip and now is better than last time here.

3 15-1 Summer Applause Garrett Gomez Bret Calhoun

Action’s Line: Working well; added ground will help this filly immensely. Always running in the lane.

4 12-1 Eden’s Moon Martin Garcia Bob Baffert

Action’s Line: Has yet to pass a horse in her career. Looks like a needs-to-lead type.

5 20-1 Hard Not to Like Robby Albarado Gail Cox

Action’s Line: Bred to like the dirt, but picks a tough race to find out if she can handle it.

6 4-1 Broadway’s Alibi John Velazquez Todd Pletcher

Action’s Line: Is the speed of the race; first time testing two turns. Will be among favs, but buyer beware.

7 50-1 Sacristy Mike Smith Wayne Catalano

Action’s Line: Yet to run two turns, but does have a win at Churchill.

8 10-1 Jemima’s Pearl Joe Talamo Bob Baffert

Action’s Line: Ran well first time with Baffert. Training well and held her own in work with Bodemeister.

9 10-1 Believe You Can Rosie Napravnik Larry Jones

Action’s Line: Won, lost, won, lost, won … now loses?

10 15-1 And Why Not Julien Leparoux Michael Matz

Action’s Line: Tough assignment off five-month layoff last out. She is training very well.

11 20-1 Karlovy Vary James Graham George Arnold

Action’s Line: Only dirt try was this filly’s worst race, but she does come in off a Grade 1 victory.

12 50-1 Colonial Empress Corey Nakatani D. Wayne Lukas

Action’s Line: The Lukas losing streak in graded stakes races continues. Maiden Special Weight necessary.

13 10-1 Amie’s Dini Jon Court Ron Moquette

Action’s Line: Very consistent sort has done little wrong in her career. Looks like she’s sitting on a big run.

14 30-1 Yara Jesus Castanon Jose Garoffalo

Action’s Line: She beat Grace Hall off a layoff, and that filly came back and beat her by 10 lengths.

15 AE 50-1 Oaks Lily Rafael Bejarano Timothy Hills

Action’s Line: The name fits, she doesn’t.
