SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Mended comes off a nice win at Del Mar when breaking her maiden with ease. She is spotted very good and Chantal Southerland is looking go get her first win since coming back. No. 6 Chalking It Up is back to her best game and that is going long on the dirt. 3-6

Race 2

No. 1 Goldrushcat exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, she came out of the dreaded post positon number 1 in her debut race at Los Al and almost got home when bet down to 6/5. No. 5 Swag Money exits a key race and could wake up in this spot. 1-5

Race 3

No. 1 Midnight Hawk was last seen running a solid second by a neck in the Razorback at Oaklawn last year, he comes back in a good spot by Baffert has been ice cold going 0-15. No. 3 Cyrus Alexander has always been well regarded by Hollendorfer and this is his best game going a mile on the dirt. No. 7 Imperative was last seen running in the Grade III Native Diver finishing second behind Dortmund. 

1-3-7

Race 4

No. 2 Tryst is a first time starter out of the dam Carson Jen who has dropped 7 winners from 7 starters. She cost $400k and took some time to get to the races but that last work was a sizzler and this 4yo filly has the connections to get the win first out of the box. No. 3 Zip N Bayou gets off the grass and back to a sprint and we like the hard trying Abel Lezvcano getting the call, she is the price play.

Win and play 2

Race 5

No. 6 Flowinwiththebreez is perfectly spotted off the maiden win and she has four nice works since. No. 7 Sayitright Kat gets Bejarano today and will need to sit off the hot pace, if so she has a shot. 6-7
