SANTA ANITA

Race 1

We start this horrible card off with a five horse field, No. 1 Run Over You has been on the board in all three of his starts here, No. 4 Brave Justice has a win on this course and drops into an action spot and gets a big rider switch. 1-4

Race 2

In this five horse field No. 4 Smoothe As Candy exits our HTW list and looks to have a pace advantage over the rest. 4

Key Play

$4 double

1st 1-4

2nd 4 for $8

$20 win 4 for $20

Race 3

Now this is one bad $12,500 claimer as we have six signed on going a flat mile and none have the look of a winner except No. 2 Indy Ride who has his claiming price cut in half. 2

Race 4

At least in this 40k maiden claimer we have eight entered but this is one of the worst 40k maiden claiming races I have ever seen at Santa Anita. No. 8 This Time Baby has some speed but I would not take a short price. 8

Race 5

No. 1 Pericia Fina has some long shot appeal, she is in good form and can handle this flat mile distance. No. 3 Hameildaeme is by far the class but may be over bet, No. 6 Michaels’s Rose will get the jump on them down the stretch. 1-3-6

Key Play

$2 exacta box 1-3-6 for $12

Race 6

No. 1 Kiss’em For Me had a good debut race despite a slow start, if she can get a good break she could win. No. 3 Phoenician Star is the filly to beat with Rosario in the irons.

1-3

Race 7

No. 3 Red Alert Day has won both of his turf starts here at Santa Anita and we will string along with the Neil Drysdale gelding as he is in top form. 3

Key Play

$10 win and place 3 for $20

Race 8

No. 2 James Prior and No. 8 Souvenir Slew both have a big shot and we will use both of them in the late pick three. 2-8

Key Play

6th 1-3

7th 3

8th 2-8 for $4

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1

We will single No. 3 Tribul Witch in the early pick four as this girl looked super when breaking her maiden. 3

Race 2

No. 6 Good Newsman just did lose the bob in his last race, he exits our HTW list and looks like another single. 6

Key Play

$10 win and place 6 for $20

Race 3

No. 4 Quickly Gone has the speed to take these back-to-back on the drop in class. 4

Race 4

No. 3 Willie The Fox loves this course and looks set for another big effort, No. 6 Aggravated Battery will be the one they will have to run down. 3-6

Key Play

$5 pick four

1st 3

2nd 6

3rd 4

4th 3-6 for $10

Race 5

No. 1 Poets Cove looks like a solid play in this 8k maiden claimer going 1 1/16. 1

Race 6

There is not much early speed lined up for this race and No. 4 Tony’s Legacy may sneak away with an easy early lead and not stop. No. 7 Jet Iron will be coming with his late run. 4-7

Race 7

No. 2 Lookn Ever Finer exits our HTW and has been looking for a spot and has found one here. 2

Key Play

$20 win 2 for $20

Race 8

No. 5 Griffinstown will try and turn the tables on No. 6 Vaderator who beat him by a head last time out. 5-6

Key Play

$6 Q 5-6 for $6

$2 pick four

5th 1
