SANTA ANITA 

Race 2

No. 4 GOLDRUSHCAT: Was working like a real runner for this $30k maiden race for 2yo fillies. She got hammered at the windows and was sent off at 6/5. She battled down on the inside head to head but was caught late as the rail was no place to be. She ran just super against the bias and will be a solid single next time out with a better post. $$$$$

Race 4

No. 1 ARABIAN LEOPARD
May have been best in the Eddie Logan going a mile on the grass but he hesitated at the start and was far back in another galaxy. Somehow he swung out into the stretch and made a big four wide run. Finished a clear third just a half length behind the second place horse and 1½ from the even money winner. $$$

and

No. 7 DIPLODOCUS
Out of the hot barn of Richard Baltas this colt just grinded out the 1-1/8 turf distance to win by 1¾ under a good ride by Abel Lezcano in a real nice effort. This colt will be able to step up vs. winners for the hot Baltas who gears his stable for this meet.

Race 8

No. 6 DIXIE SPICE: First time starter was breaking from a bad inside post in the 5½ furlong sprint at Los Al TB but she got a good spot and split rivals inside the quarter pole drawing clear early. She then turned back a bid and motored home to win by three lengths in a big time effort first out for trainer Puype. She will be able to move up and face winners at Santa Anita, which opens the day after Christmas.
