SANTA ANITA

SHIFTY DANCER, BLACK SITE, GRAY ADMIRAL: These three all exit the same mile turf race on March 28. SHIFTY DANCER, the winner, went wire-to-wire in his first try on the grass for Hector Palma. He looked good winning this race and will be hard to beat again on the move up. BLACK SITE had a tough trip while finishing second and then had his number taken down and placed 4th behind GRAY ADMIRAL, who had been taking a lot of cash but broke out and was steadied off the heels of Black Site. He can turn the tables on this next out. We will follow all three in their upcoming starts.

HOFFENHEIM: Was making his first start off the $40K David Jacobson claim. Was in this $40K optional claiming race, showing big improvement in finishing a solid 3rd while coming four wide late. Just missed the place by a half-length. He may need just a tad longer to get the money next time out at this level or one lower.

BABY GRONK: Was getting his second start and first off the $50K Bill Spawr claim. It was a good sign Spawr put him in this Cal bred maiden special race. Was sent off at 9/5 in his first race and really never had a shot after he bobbled and steadied at the start. Showed good early speed in this race, taking the lead and just failing to hold off the 8/5 chalk by a nostril while five lengths clear of the rest. We will be singling next time out. $$$

LA LA LAND: Was getting just his second start in the States and coming off a good 3rd place finish down the hill. Was going a mile on the grass in the $200K Pasadena and ran good despite a slow start finishing a closing 3rd. He may need allowance company to get the win next out but looks to be on the uptick for D’Amato. We will string along.

FAULT: Was our single of the day on our daily picks on the web site. This filly ran like she was shot out of a cannon winning by more than six lengths vs. a tough field in the Grade 1 Santa Margarita. She may be on her way to a Breeders’ Cup race. Had been running exclusively on the grass but really looked to love this dirt course. Dirt again and we will be on her again. $$$$$
