Email

Two plays Saturday on a wide-open card. The results from Friday will be updated tomorrow.

Race 3

The favorites are vulnerable in this maiden-claiming sprint for California-bred fillies and mares. Tiz Next (5-2) has speed, but has not raced in a year. Risin? Heat (7-2) is bred to win early, but her trainer Chuck Peery has been cold.

Lady Sorceress, trained by Jorge Gutierrez, has worked well, and Gutierrez springs with an occasional longshot rookie. Lady Sorceress is 12-1 on the line, and a bet at 9-1.

The bet: $25 win Lady Sorceress (minimum odds 9-1).

Race 8

Don't chase horses you already have lost on. Except sometimes.

Smart n'Quiet outran her odds two weeks ago while showing increased speed. She is up in class after that fourth-place finish against Calbreds, and while she does not figure to win the Grade 3 Sorrento, all you can really hope for is a horse to outrun its price.

That is what Smart n'Quiet figures to do. She is 15-1 on the line, and a bet at 9-1.

The bet: $25 win Smart n'Quiet (minimum odds 9-1).

That's it. Back on Sunday.

Total wagers Thursday: $25.
Total return Thursday: $0.
