SANTA ANITA

Race 1

The rains came again on Wednesday so it will be very hard to get a handle on the track but we will try and see what we can come up with. No. 2 Pocatello Wild Kat has the look of a filly that can go long, No. 5 Nena Ideal and No. 6 Lisa Lulu both exit the same race and jockey Chantal Sutherland will take over the mount on Lisa Lulu for trainer Abrams and that means she is very live. 2-5-6

Race 2

If the all go in this 40k maiden claimer for 3yo fillies there is a ton of early speed and we sill side with No. 1 Sea Empress who gets her second start for a trainer that wins at a 26% rate with second time maidens. No. 2 This Time Baby will sit off the pace and try and make a run down the lane, No. 4 Warren’s Moon is out of the low profile barn of Jorge Gutierrez but top jock Bejarano gets the call on this first time starter. 1-2-4

Race 3

This race is scheduled to go on the 6½ furlong downhill turf course, if so we will go with No. 7 Jehan (turf or pro ride) and No. 9 Flashover turf only. 7-9

Race 4

No. 4 Sally Says So runs her best races of late with jockey Santiago in the irons, No. 9 Kelleys Kitchen ran right behind Sally last time out as did No. 10 Catana Perez who will be the speed. 4-9-10

Key Play

$2 exacta box 4-9-10 for $12

$1 tri box 4-9-10 for $6

$10 win and place 9 for $20

Race 5

Straight maidens listed to go a flat mile on the grass, if so we like No. 7 Top Feeling (turf or pro ride), No. 8 Unusually Sound with Sutherland riding this Unusual Heat first time starter for Paddy Gallagher (turf only) and No. 9 Alive For Six (turf or pro ride). 7-8-9

Race 6

No. 4 Red Alarm woke up big time in her last start for the hot Espinoza and she will love the turn back to 6½ furlongs, No. 7 Sunny Peace never got untracked in her last start but makes a quick comeback and will go better today. 4-7

Race 7

We have another turf race to deal with and we will go with three exiting the same race, No. 2 Powerofvoodoo who has just two wins from 43 starts but she is in good form and will be coming for a piece. No. 5 Welken who is just the opposite with seven wins from 23 starts and hitting the board in 19 of those races. She exits a big win and gets moved up in her first start off the Mike Mitchell claim. No. 7 Warren’s Appeal likes the course and the distance. 2-5**-7

Key Play

$5 exacta 5 with 2-7 for $10

$2 exacta 2 with 5-7 for $4

$5 exacta box 5-7 for $10

$1 tri box 2-5-7 ( all selections were maid for turf only)

Race 8

No. 3 Bewithced Again ran a dud in her last start but now gets Expinoza to ride and he rode this girl in her maiden breaker. No. 8 Lacey Leilah drops and gets back on the pro ride after a failed attempt on the grass and the turn back in distance will help her chances. 3-8

 

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

No. 1 Exclusive Game has been a real money burner but has hit the board in all seven of her starts with five seconds and a third, so who will beat her today? No. 3 Mistical Dream and No. 4 Arrivederci Caro both look to have a shot. 1-3-4

No.1 Just Get’er Done gets back on the main after trying to turf on a yielding course, she should be legged up for this race. No. 2 Isabelqa exits our HTW list off a rousing win last time out, she gets a double jump in class off the Mathis claim and the price just may be a good one.

Race 7

No. 1 Quickly Gone went wire-to-wire in her first start on this course, No. 3 Perfect Hostess has big speed herself and she will be wining on the front end with QQ and that just could set it all up for No. 5 Smooch Me who will be just sitting in wait. 1-3-5**

$1 tri box 1-3-5 for $6
