SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Call Me Dutchess is back in town after a failed attempt to break her maiden at Golden Gate and is now dropped to the bottom, she has some speed and the big drop will help her chances. No. 3 Flashy Traveler has had her chances but fits well with this group, No. 5 Skylights is an interesting filly as the low profile Cosme Rivera rides for Sadler. 1-3-5

Race 2

Down the hill they go in this straight maiden for statebreds, No. 3 Unknown Heat has lost in 16 attempts but must be considered, No. 7 Chicago Gal is the one to beat if she can handle the grass. 3-7

Race 3

No. 2 Ringolevio loves this distance and jockey Joe Talamo fits him like a glove, No. 9 Major General is stuck outside in this mile race but will take back and try and run them down late. 2-9

Race 4

We will go searching for some price plays in this 20k claimer for fillies and mares. No. 1 Cherie’s Dream has long shot written all over her, if she can stay clear she will be flying late and just may get up at a big price. No. 3 Lady In Love will be boxcars and also deserves a shot. 1-3
