Race 1

We start this nine race card with 2yo maidens going six furlongs. No. 1 Palace Prince was sent off at 6/5 in his debut race at Santa Anita when going 4-1/2 furlongs. He will love the longer trip and Mike Smith sticks. No. 3 Billy Batts ships in for Peter Miller looking for some of that ship and win cash, he has been turfing back East. No. 5 Fredericktown is a very live first time starter for team Desormeaux. 


Race 2

Maidens travel 1-1/16 on the grass. Mike Smith looks to take down the early double as he jumps on No. 1 The Longest Night on the stretchout and first on the grass. No. 3 MOODY JIM will be our key runner in here as he is in from Churchill Downs where he was a good 4th in a loaded field. We love Drayden Van Dyke riding for Jeff Mullins. No. 5 Succeedandsurpass is in from Ireland and lands in the Richard Baltas barn, he is a must use. No. 7 Mo Forza was a good second in his last race going this turf distance at Santa Anita. 


Race 3


No. 1 Lieutenant Dan is in top form and has run only one bad race. No. 2 Cruel Intention had his prep for this and comes off a huge bullet work here on the 20th when best of 66 runners. 1-2

Race 4

Maidens travel 1-1/16 on the grass. No. 7 FARQUHAR exits our HTW list off a better than looked 4th last out. The price will be right and we will key him with No. 6 Hackberry and the speed No. 9 Music to My Ears who exits a key race. 7**-6-9



Race 5

$20k maidens go 6-1/2 furlongs. No. 4 Cross Town ran an even race first out with $50k company, he drops in class and gets the leading jockey up. No. 10 My Way Out ran a good second first out of the box at Los Al TB, he owns a good last work and looks ready to roll. 4-10

Race 6

Calif. bred $20k optional claimers go six furlongs. No. 3 Ishi gets his second start off the long layoff for Peter Miller. No. 5 Perfect Wager just missed by a dwindling neck at this level in his last start at Santa Anita. No. 6 Clem Labine exits our HTW list off a neck loss last out at this level. No. 8 Wild Bean was just a nostril behind Clem in that race. No. 9 Policy looks live off the layoff, he ran back to back big races here last year. 6**-8*-9-3-5

Race 7

$40k optional fillies and mares travel a mile on the grass. No. 1 Great Return has sprinted five furlongs on the grass in her first three races, she runs like she would love a longer trip. No. 2 True To Herself is in from Ireland and lands in the Baltas barn and Flavien Prat will ride. No. 6 Invincibella is in from over the pond and lands in the Hector Palma barn. Abel Cedillo will ride, this one will be live at a price. No. 7 Velvet Queen is the stablemate of True to Herself, she comes off a good second going a mile on the grass. No. 9 Salsa Bella is a must use since we are using Invincibella. Salsa is in from New York looking for some ship and win cash and her trainer knows how to put one over. 9**-6-2-1-7

Race 8


No. 7 Recruiting Ready is in from New York where he finished a close 3rd in the Grade 2 True North when losing to Catalina Cruiser. No. 8 Jalen Journey is in from Florida and lands in the Peter Miller barn with Mike Smith jumping on, nuff said. 7-8

Race 9

This very tough day ends with maiden 2yo fillies going a mile on the grass. No. 5 Antigone is a first time starter for Simon Callaghan. She owns a big last work and looks ready to run huge, her turf breeding says yes! After her all we can say is watch the tote? 5**
