SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 4 PASEO ALEGRO: The early money was all over this Golden Gate shipper who was getting his first start off the Vann Belvoir claim, but he broke in the back of the pack and just stayed there until the top of the lane when unleashing a real nice run down on the inside. Was one of four heads on the line in a very long photo finish. Came up on the short end finishing fourth but may have won it with a better trip. Next time!

Race 3

No. 5 MANK: Was making his first start since January 2012 for trainer John Shirreffs, who can have them ready off the layoff. He was ready and ran a good race but had to settle for second when run down at the wire. Next time he gets the money.

Race 8

No. 2 ANNIVERSARY KITTY: Had the worst of it breaking from the 14 post in this mile turf race. She broke slow to top things off, was hooked wide and made a seven-wide run into the stretch. Came running like she wanted it, but just had too much ground to make up. Finished second behind the 65/1 winner who had a prefect trip from post No. 2. $$$$$

GOLDEN GATE

Race 8

No. 7 HILLSIDE SELECT: We took a good shot with this first time starter going 5½ furlongs on the synthetic surface. She just sat in the back of the pack until the top of the lane and then unleashed a big late five-wide run to finish a fast closing fourth at 17-1. We will be hoping for 6 furlongs next time out
