SANTA ANITA

Race 1

There will be three horses in here that will be out winging on the front end and that could set it all up for No. 4 Lichtenstein, a Bob Baffert first time starter with his new main man in the irons, Martin Garcia. 4

Race 2

Going down the hill and this just may stay on the grass as the weather has improved; if it goes on the grass we favor No. 7 Squeeze Me Tight, a two-time winner on this course. If it comes off the grass we will go with No. 6 Gula Gold who will be a nice price from off the pace. 6 (pro ride) 7 ( grass).

No. 2 Ur Turn Dubai will be making a late run at the speed, No. 3 Really Uptwon will be part of the early pace and if Espinoza can clear early he could be gone. 2-6
