SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Ready Cat is listed at 10/1 on the morning line and we would love to get that price as he finds little to beat in here and will get a fast early pace to set up his last run. 3

Win and place 3

Race 2

No. 1 Itsgettinhotinhere is listed at 8/1 on the morning line and we feel the same about this race as we did about Race 1. Anywhere near 8/1 and we will be heading to the windows as this 4yo gelding will find a very fast early pace and Bejarano gets back on will have him rolling down the lane. 1

Win and place 1

Race 3

No. 1 London Legacy gets a double drop in class and has hit the board in 6 of his 7 starts here. No. 4 I’m Zonin gets the move up off the Baltas claim and this trainer points his stable to this meet. No. 6 Wake Up Nick was a terror at 2 but has done little as a 3yo, he also gets a double drop in class. 1-4-6

Race 4

No. 1 Almost Reality looks to be sitting on the maiden breaker. No. 3 Lily Kai exits the same race and once again she will be the speed in here. No. 5 Lucy De exits our HTW list, she was eliminated at the gap last time out and will like the stretchout on the grass. No. 8 Out Ofthe Ordinary exits the same race as the top two. 1-3-5-8
