UNO TROUBLE MAKER: Just won like a good thing at 4-1 for trainer Bill Spawr. This filly loves it here at Santa Anita and will be a good bet right back on the slight raise in class. Another good price will be in the offering.

A DIME FOR ME: $30k maiden claimer battled the odds-on chalk all the way around the track in this 5½-furlong sprint. She never gave up and ran on until the end to finish a clear second over four lengths in front of the rest in this race. She will be a solid play next out.

OUT OF BALANCE-TIZ FELICITY: These two fillies ran second and third in a mile turf race for straight maidens, with Out of Balance finishing second five lengths in front of Tiz Felicity who was making her first start. Tiz Felicity made a nice late run to pick up the show dough, with some pace to run at next time, these two girls could make a nice exacta box.

KAZAN: Jockey Joel Rosario must have though he was sitting on a ton of horse in this mile turf race as he had Kazan far back and dead last, he made a nice run up the inside but had to change lanes in deep stretch and it cost him. He did finish a bang-up third, missing the place by a half- length and the win by a neck and a half-length. We will be all over this guy next out.

BARTLETT HALL: Hesitated at the start to be dead last in this 6½-furlong, $16k maiden claimer. This bad start would have eliminated most cheap maiden runners, but he moved up between runners and then moved to the outside for room to come on to be a better-than-looked third. We will give him a big shot next out at this level.
