SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 Malibu Canyon likes this course and comes off a nice win with Tyler Baze, he will get a good stalking trip and will be hard to beat. No. 3 Trail Mix is a win machine speed ball; this 9yo gelding takes a big drop in class and will be very hard to run down. 2-3

Race 2

We will use a speed horses and two closers in the second race, No. 1 Allie Wolff is a speed ball trained by Carla Gaines who also trains Malibu Canyon in the first race; she will try and take down the early double. No. 3 Singitnsignit and No. 5 Lucy Got Lucky will be the two that will try and run Allie Down. 1-3-5

Key Play

$2 double

1st 2-3

2nd 1-3-5 for $12

Race 3

The third is scheduled to go down the hill on the grass but with more rain in the forecast it most likely will come off the turf, if so we like No. 7 Spirit Of Cochise; if it stays on the grass we will go with No. 2 Noblety who has never been off the board in five starts on this course with two wins a second and two thirds. No. 10 Crossing The Line is a main players turf or pro ride. 2 (turf only) 7 (pro ride only) 10 (turf or pro ride).

Race 4

No. 4 Abalanche is wheeled back in just five days off the Doug O’Neill claim; O’Neill who also retained part ownership must like what he bought as he jumps him up a notch. 4

Key Play

$10 win and place 4 for $20

Race 5

No. 1 Kimmyv has won both of her starts here on the pro ride and has never been off the board in four lifetime starts. No. 3 Life By R R gets a big time move up in class by trainer Doug O’Neill, this 4yo filly must really be doing great. No. 5 Dash Dot Dash just did get beat by a head in her last start and her barn is having a great meet. 1-3-5

Key Play

$2 exacta box 1-3-5 for $12

Race 6

No. 3 If You Knew Susie exits our HTW list and is a filly on the improve; she is sitting on the maiden breaker and the price will be a good one. No. 5 Warrens Matachmaker has a shot to give trainer Van Berg a much needed win and these Warren horses have been winning like clock work of late. No. 7 Lana’s Lovely looks to be the speed of the race, if she clears early she could be long gone. 3-5-7

Key Play

$10 win and place 3 for $20

Race 7

No. 4 Feisty Suances likes this track and this is his best distance, No. 5 Deal Breaker is another who likes it here winning both of his starts on this course, No. 8 Mythical Power is the class and the last time he went a flat mile he won the Lone Star Derby by more then seven lengths. 4-5-8

Race 8

No. 3 Spinning Sound gets Bejarano back in the irons and this 5yo gelding will be flying late and just may have found a group he can run down. No. 11 Crash Landing showed much improved early speed in his last start and may get the jump on them. 3-11
