ROMAN CENTURIAN: 3-year-old maiden was traveling 1 1/16 miles on the dirt. He raced unhurried in the early stages while sitting on the outside. He made an eye popping four-wide move around the far turn coming home fast and just blew this field away by four lengths. He will move up and repeat next out. 

NU PI LAMBDA: Was going 6 1/2 furlongs on the turf in this allowance race for fillies and mares. She was let go at 10-1 and sat down on the inside. Moving into the stretch she unleashed a six-wide run to finish third in a close three-horse photo. We think she has found her game sprinting on the grass.

GATOR SHINING: We liked this 3-year-old on our Santa Anita selections at In this six- furlong turf race he got pinballed and slammed hard at the start and was dead last in this seven-horse field. He surged four-wide into the stretch and blasted home, just missing by a nostril while five lengths clear of the rest.

PUBILIUS SYRUS: Was traveling a flat mile on the dirt. Was four-wide into the first turn but was taken to the inside. Was angled out once again and just made an eye-popping move, blowing by the leader in deep stretch to win with a lot left in the tank. This one will move up and repeat and will be a solid single in the picks next out.
