Thursday Alerts at Santa Anita
Race 4 No. 4 RANCHERO: First time starter for trainer Bob Baffert would have broke his maiden on any other day but met up with the dirt loving Brace Yourself. Ranchero ran second almost three lengths clear of the rest and will be a solid single next time out.
Race 6 No. 4 OHANA SPIRIT: Was blocked much of the stretch, but once clear he surged late to pick up the place. A winner next time out if he finds some pace to chase.
