Santa Anita

Race 1

Fillies and Mares going a flat mile on the grass and this one is a real puzzler as none of the girls have won a race on the grass, No. 1 Super Sophie is lightly raced and did run second on the green at Del Mar, she could be a live comebacker for trainer Mike Mitchell who uses the hot Bejarano. 1

Race 2

No. 4 Bilo has been looking for a spot and if he goes today this 10yo will try and take them gate-to-wire, No. 6 Orientation Hall will get a good set up for his late turn of foot, No. 1 Polish Quest could also make a late dent on the early speed and closers win these 5½ furlong races at a high percentage. 1-4-6

Race 4

A 3yo straight maiden going a flat mile on the pro ride, No. 7 Tiz Argent who is the son of Tizbud looks set for the stretchout for trainer Sadler, he was well bet in his one and only and has the looks of an up and comer. 7

Race 7

In this 6½ furlong downhill turf sprint No. 2 Achak has a win and two seconds in his three starts on this layout and will be right there again today. No. 5 Rainbow Goose was unlucky to lose in his last on this course and this guy who exits our HTW list will be flying late, if he can steer clear of trouble he will win.
