SANTA ANITA 

Race 1

No. 1 Benba gets back on the grass and will show all of his speed from the rail. No. 7 Burnaroundtheedges will love the stretchout today. No. 13 Durnago Flier looks best but is stuck on the also list. 1-7-13

Race 2

No. 3 Send Me a Sign gets back on the dirt and has some nice works for this and Mike Smith sticks, it looks like graduation day. No. 4 Untouchable U exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play. She ran right behind Send Me a Sign in her first start going 6-1/2 furlongs, she will be the main danger. 3-4

Exacta box 3-4

Race 3

No. 2 Hill Four Eleven is a first time starter with the hot riding Santiago Gonzalez getting the call and those last two works says he is on go. No. 4 One of the Greats drops in with maiden claimers and will try and take them wire-to-wire. No. 5 Ultra Sharp will be right on the tail of One of the Greats keeping him honest. 2-4-5

Double 

2nd 3-4

3rd 2-4-5

Race 4

We will take a shot here in the players pick five and single No. 8 Hear the Footsteps who is in from New York for trainer David Jacobson. He may just like going down the hill. 8

Race 5

No. 1 Kiwi Attitude had a tough trip in his first start but still ran a good one just losing by 1-1/2 lengths. No. 3 Mountain Hero exits our HTW list, he gets off the rail and will like the 7 furlong distance today. No. 5 Bolitar exits a good race and drops in this his second start, Prat gets the call. 1-3-5

This downhill turf sprint is very wide open and we will need to go four deep using No. 3 Grazenette who drops and owns a win over this course. No. 6 Conquest So True who is in from Canada and lands in the barn of Cerin. No. 7 Q’Viva who has a win and five second going down the hill and No. 9 Pearl de Vere who owns a win and two second from three starts down the hill. 3-6-7-9

Race 8

We will take another shot here and single No. 12 Kafister who has won 6 of his 12 starts here. He has good speed and will fall into a perfect spot and get the jump on them down the lane. 12

Race 9

Must go deep once again in this $10k claimer for fillies and mares. No. 1 Bench Ruling is the speed in from the Gate and is trained by the ultra dangerous Jonathon Wong. No. 5 Tell Her Yes never runs a bad race, drops back in class and Gonzalez sticks. No. 6 Individual Design ran good at this level last out and looks right there. No. 8 Chia Love is sent out by the hot Baltas. 1-5-6-8

CHECK FOR LATE SCRATCHES AND CHECK THAT THE SADDLE CLOTH NUMBERS MATCH OUR SELECTION NUMBERS.
