SANTA ANITA

ETTERBAY UCKLAY: First-time starter for trainer Ron Ellis, unseated his rider when fractious in the gate. Once in and the gate opened he broke very slow and was dead last until top of the lane when unleashing a big late run, finishing in a rush to pick up the place money in what was a big effort.

MAJOR CABBIE: Broke out and was steadied hard in the early going, he then was pulling his ride to the inside and had to be steadied hard once again nearing the first turn. He came wide into the stretch and actually go to the front but tired just a little last to lose on the line. No mistake next out with a good trip.

SHYLOCK EDDIE: Was in good position stalking on the outside but then was taken inside and had to be steadied hard off heels leaving the turn. She came out at the top of the lane and rallied late to just miss as one of three runners on the line. This was a tough loss as this filly was best. 

SHINING THROUGH: Was making a big run but had to be steadied hard off heels at the top of the lane. He was switched out for room and stormed home just missing by less than a length. He will be very tough next out at this level and distance.

JASIKAN: Irish shipper for trainer John Sadler was last seen winning in Ireland in November of 2018. He ran his race despite hesitating at the break to be last, made a big four-wide run to finish a clear third, just a neck behind the above mentioned Shining Through. 

TIZZARUNNER: Was coming off the layoff for trainer Mike McCarthy and just ran his eyeballs out, finishing second at 14-1 despite a very troubled trip and the rider losing his whip. He will be a solid play next out and the price should be fair.
