SANTA ANITA

STARS OF BLUEGRASS: 2-year-old maiden first-time starter just ran a great race for trainer Andrew Lerner. She came with a big three-wide rally into the lane and ran on gamely to lose by a neck while more than two lengths clear of the rest. She will be a solid single in the picks next out. 

ZORICH: Ran his race but just could not run down the lone speed in this mile dirt race. He did cut into the winners’ lead late and was almost five lengths clear of the rest. Look for him in the winners circle next out if he finds some pace to run at. 

CALIFORNIA KOOK: Trainer Peter Miller comebacker made a looping five-wide move into the stretch and just blasted home to win going away by more than three lengths in this mile turf race. Look for Miller to move him up for a repeat score going a mile or longer on the grass. 

COUNT ALEXEI: We just can’t wait till this one comes back for his second start. He was making his first start for trainer Brian Koriner and ran too good to lose in this 5 1/2 furlong grass race. He showed good early speed while dueling down on the inside. He inched away down the lane only to get nailed on the line by the 7-5 favorite.
