SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Unless one of the first time starters is a monster No. 5 Nicole H who exits our HTW list will just run them off their feet. 5

Race 2

No. 2 Gilligan is in top form and gets a big rider switch, No. 1 Show The Flag exits the same race and he will try and run them down late. 1-2

Race 3

No. 5 Horowitz has run two turf races in his short two race career and both were okay, jockey Rosario will take over the mount for his first shot at this course. 5

Race 4

No. 3 Exile takes the big drop from straight maiden to this 25k maiden claimer as they look for the win and the dump. 3

Key Play

$2 pick four

1st 5

2nd 1-2

3rd 5

4th 3 for $4

Race 5

No. 3 A Jealous Woman exits our HTW list and looks set for the stretchout going a mile on the grass, No. 4 Wild Poppy looks like a sneaky shipper for trainer Clement. No. 5 Playa Bonita broke her maiden on this course and will be the one to fear late. 3-4-5

Race 6

There is a ton of early speed in here so we will go with three horses that will be sitting off the hot pace, No. 6 Renegade Storm, No. 7 Fantasy Free and the lightly raced No. 8 Norvsky. 6-7-8

Race 7

No. 3 Devil Cat M D gets a big time boast in class off the O’Neill claim he must really like what he bought. 3

Key Play

$10 win and place 3 for $20

Race 8

No. 6 Ellafitz looks like another pick up for trainer Baffert as this girl broke her maiden at Woodbine and now shows her face here in a Grade 111. No. 1 Zilva had a race over the track in the BC Juvenile Filly race and she will find these much easier. 1-6

Race 9

No. 5 Blind Optimism looks set in this her second start, the danger could come from the Todd Pletcher first time starter No. 13 She’s Not Lion. 5-13

Key Play
