Masochistic has been installed as the morning line favorite at odds of 9-5 for trainer Ron Ellis. A gelded son of Sought After bred in California, the five-year-old has won five of his seven starts and is a perfect two for two this year. Last time out, he stepped up to graded stakes competition for the first time and delivered as the heavy favorite in the Kona Gold Stakes (G2). He has had a bullet workout since that race and will have Tyler Baze back aboard from post position five.

Second choice at 3-1 on the morning line is Sahara Sky for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. A seven-year-old son of Pleasant Tap, the eight-time career winner has had one start since a sixth-place finish in the Triple Bend (G1) last summer and that was a third-place finish in the Kona Gold (G2). He has been training steadily since his comeback effort and will have Rafael Bejarano in the irons from post four.

Also in the field at morning line odds of 3-1 is San Onofre for trainer Karen Headley. A five-year-old gelded son of Surf Cat, the California-bred has been first or second in all eight starts since his debut in 2012. He has been second in all three starts this year and has been the favorite in two of those races. Alex Solis will be aboard and they are scheduled to break from post position two as he goes for his first win of the year.
