SANTA ANITA

MAESTRO DEARTE: Just loved this guy at almost 5/1 going 1-1/8 on the grass. He was sitting right off the lone speed in 4th, moved to the outside for room into the stretch and stormed home late to miss by a dwindling head as the lone speed held. He is sitting on the win at this optional claiming level. We will be singling next time out as he was more than three lengths clear of the rest in this field.

LYNNE’S LEGACY: Filly was angled in and then out by Espinoza. He then took her back inside leaving the second turn and outside again in the stretch. She really wanted to be let loose and once clear came flying with a big late run to finish a fast closing better-than-looked 4th at 14-1. Doubt we will ever see that price next time out but with a better straight trip she can pop at a square price. $$$

DR. DORR, TEN BLESSINGS: As our trainer lesson continues this week we find these two runners out of the Bob Baffert barn in the same race. We mentioned last week with Peter Miller, when these trainers have two runners in the same race take the price. Here it was again with Dr. Dorr, who was on our HTW list winning at almost 12-1, paying $25.80, and his stablemate Ten Blessings finishing second at 9/5 with the $2 exacta paying $69. So nice.

JEWELED: We will stick with Baffert and talk about this filly who they paid $190K for. She had been consistent vs. much better, hitting the board in 3 of her 4 starts with a 4th and had a big last work. Why the drop to this $20K maiden race? We don’t have the answer but she won by 10 lengths under a long Evin Roman hold and was claimed for the $20K by John Sadler as Baffert got his wish, winning and dumping. We will be interested to see where this filly runs next time out. She was worth the $20K for breeding.

BEANTOWN BOYS: Is in good form and looked all the winner in this $16K claimer but came up 3/4 of a length short after a five-Swide run into the stretch. He is sitting on the win and only needs some pace to run at.
