SANTA ANITA

K P ALL SYSTEMS GO: First-time starter for trainer Jeff Mullins was being sent a mile on the grass. He was four-wide into the first turn and then had to wait in traffic while checking off heels in mid-stretch when looking to make a big move. He split horses and stormed home on the inside just missing less than a length in what was a much better-than-looked fifth.

LIAR LIAR: Maiden was making his first start in the States and was being sent a flat mile on the grass. He broke slow and was next to last. He settled very nice on the outside but had to be steadied hard off heels down the lane. He switched to the outside and came on to pick up the place money. He probably wants to go longer. 

DOUBLE TOUCH: Was going five furlongs on the grass, he was just flying home late after sitting last till the top of the lane, just missing the show money by a dwindling head. Going 5½ furlongs on the grass just may get this one home on top.

CONVINCINGLY: May have been best in this mile turf race for maiden 2-year-old fillies. She looked ready to blast home but just had no room when stuck down on the inside. She then had to wait again in mid-stretch, costing her the race as once she was clear she came home fast to miss by less than a length. She will be a great single next out going long on the grass.

EEL POINT: First-time starter was going 6½ furlongs. He sat last until the top of the lane and then he was moving fast late. He ran like he wants two turns, and if he goes long next out we will be making our way to the wagering windows.

FARQUHAR: Looked to be making a winning move but was shuffled back into the second turn, he came out for room into the stretch but had to wait again checking off heels in upper stretch. Once clear, he ran on to just miss the show money by a head in what was a tough trip.
