SANTA ANITA

Race 1

50k 2yo statebred, and most of these are not worth 25k; we will sit this race out or if you can board watch look for an early bet down. Pass

Race 2

No. 2 Sidney’s Candy has been rested since rousing maiden breaker at Del Mar at .60 cents on the dollar; he looks like a short price winner so if you are playing the pick four you may want to use him as a single. The hot Bob Baffert has two entered in the same race once again and they are not an entry, No. 4 Tiny Woods and No. 6 Indian Firewater.

Race 3

In this race it is John Sadler who has two entered and they are not an entry, No. 4 Line Of David who was well bet in his one and only start and HTW No. 5 Ivory Fudge. 4-5
