Fitness plays heavily in early stages of the meet and several players shipping in from Golden Gate look solid today. Being a huge Larry Ross fan over the years,  has me leaning towards WICKEDIZASWICKEDUZ in today’s 5th race. After several preps at GG where she’s been knocking on the door, she shows a getaway work followed by an easy half-mile here at Emerald. Ross goes to leading Leslie Mawing while drawing an excellent post. Price may be short but wins are wins. Good Luck……….
