SANTA ANITA (If they run today be very careful and monitor the early races to see if it is early speed or closers and make adjustments to your handicapping)

Race 1

No. 3 You Can Dream is wheeled back in just six days off an easy win by trainer O’Neill; she could take them wire-to-wire, No. 5 Party With Brando is back on the main after two attempts on the grass, one short and the last one long, she will be legged up for this race and Chantal Sutherland rides for Abrams, No. 7 Life By R R is the stablemate of You Can Dream and she is in good form. 3-5-7

Race 2

No. 3 Kimmyv will get a good pace to make her late run, No. 5 Hit The Brix looks properly spotted off the nice maiden win. 3-5

Race 3

No. 1 Joshua’s Dream will be very tough on the main, this race is scheduled for the grass but the turf course is soaked and they will not run on it. No. 7 Art Currency has been very unlucky in his last four starts, he may not go on the main but if he does he is a contender.

1-7

Race 4

Of the ones that have run only No. 9 Excessive Chatter looks like she can win, No. 7 If You Knew Susie is a first time starter that could pop at a big price. 7-9

Race 5

This could be a Susie double as No. 5 Suziqcutie looks to have a big shot in here; No. 8 Tahhahsocean and No. 10 Sunny Peace look to be the other two main contenders. 5-8-10

Race 6

No. 3 Frisco Kid showed good speed as a 2yo and could be faster in 2010, No. 4 Close To The Edge exits our HTW list and ran huge at almost 40/1 in his first start, No. 5 Rauschenberg also ran big in his one and only and his barn has been on fire, No. 9 Leothelion will get a good sitting trip from his outside post. 3-4-5-9

Race 7

This one is listed to go down the hill but will be on the main and we prefer No. 1 Fantasy Free. 1

Race 8

No. 1 Dancing Silks and No. 3 M One Rifle could hit the wire as a tandem. 1-3

Race 9

No. 1 Irish Pepper just did miss in her last start and now has run second in three straight, she is a must use in the exotics, No. 5 Meadow Lake Queen lost at 60 cents on the dollar in her last start but now gets the hot riding Espinoza, No. 10 Allie Wolff is a live first time starter for Carla Gaines, No. 11 Closing Steps gets a nice jock switch, she will sit and try and make a late run. 1-5-10-11

 

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1

No. 3 Maroon exits our HTW list and looks to be sitting on another big try, No. 5 Alottadar just did miss in his last start and this is one tough 9yo gelding, No. 6 Alashir’s Storm will be right there as will No. 7 San Fran, its whoever gets the best trip. 3-5-6-7

Race 3

No. 2 Shadow Lake is a live first time starter from Steve Sherman who puts R Baze in the irons, No. 6 Birdie Girl and No. 8 Xstransportation are both first time starters for trainer Moger and he can pop at a big price. 2-6-8

$2 double

2nd 1-2-4

3rd 2-6-8 for $18

Race 4

No. 4 Dark Dolores and No. 9 Veillit’ look to be the main two in this flat mile. 4-9

Race 5

In this 8k maiden claimer none that have run look worth a bet so we will side with two first time starters, No. 7 Rovasco who lives in a very solid barn and No. 8 Jackpot Jonesy.

7-8

Race 6

No. 9 Simple Justice looks to have found a very good spot to notch win number three. 9

Race 7

No. 1 Manitoga is sired by Indian Charley who hits at 17% with his first times starters, No. 8 Turbulence exits our HTW list, he is in from down South off a very near miss and R Baze says he will ride, No. 9 Brian Boru is another dangerous looking invader. 1-8-9

Race 8

No. 4 Lockford will get a good pace to set up his late run, No. 6 Sir Al put in a good effort in his last start on this course. 4-6

Race 9

No. 1 Snow Seeker and No. 2 Really A Dutchess both look to be good plays to close out the day and we will use both in the late pick four. 1-2
