Laurel Park Seventh Race – Post time 3:23 ET

7 - Maxine’s Tap Room (4-1) 

Won at first asking like a quality filly and gets tested for class while moving into stakes competition in this year’s edition of the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship. What she may lack in experience she can make up for in raw ability and based on speed figures and a healthy work pattern since raced she could easily be up to the task in this seven furlong main track affair. At 4-1 on the morning line the daughter of Bourbon Courage offers value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.   

Los Alamitos Race Course Fifth Race – Post Time: 2:30 PT

1 – Kalypso (6-1)

Talented filly is one of three starters from the B. Baffert barn in the Starlet S.-G1, but while most of the wagering action will go to stable mate Princess Noor we’re thinking this rapidly-developing two-year-old might pull off an upset.  Stretching out to a distance she’s bred to love following a gate-to-wire victory in the Anoakia S. at Santa Anita in mid-October and with superior workouts since, the daughter of Brody’s Cause can be dangerous on the lead or from a stalking position. At 6-1 on the morning line, she’s worth a gamble.
