SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 6 Greyson and John gets a nice rider upgrade to Flavien Prat. He exits the same race as No. 5 Ready Cat and will get the jump on that one. 5-6

Race 2

In what is a real wideopen $30k maiden claimer for 3yo we need to hit the all button or just take a shot and go with No. 3 Wise Tale who gets the break in weights with the bug boy David Lopez getting a rare ride for O’Neill in this his second off the claim. 3

Race 3

No. 1 You Know I Know gets his first start off the David Jacobson claim, he exits our HTW list and Jacobson is way over due for a win here on the West Coast. No. 4 Perfect Set exits a key race where the first two finishers came back to score next out including China Girl Lover who was exiting our HTW list and paid boxcars. No. 5 Tribal Jewel likes this course and gets his first start off the Baltas claim. 1-4-5

Exacta box 1-4-5

Race 4

No. 3 Hidden Reality drops back to the $8k level and gets Santiago Gonzalez in the irons, she is on go. No. 5 No Tricks for Jack won back to back races at this level and now drops off the $10k Diodoro claim. 3-5

Race 5

Flavien Prat gets on No. 3 Whispering Softly for Graham Motion another trainer looking for his first win here at the Great Race place, we think this filly gets the win today. 3

Win and place 3

Race 6

No. 2 Take it Easyplease drops off the win but do not fear as this trainer hits at 50% when dropping off a win. No. 6 Clem Juice has speed and gets a big boast in class off a wire-to-wire win last out. No. 7 Lets Get Frisky gets a huge drop in class and she gets the bug boy on board today. No. 8 Temperature Runnin drops and adds speed to the race. 2-6-7-8

Race 7

No. 2 Sugar Buzz has two wins and a second since being stretched out to this mile distance. No. 7 Nicaradalic Rocks will be sitting chilly with the hopes of running them down. No. 9 Frac Candy drops and could be the speed. 2-7-9

Race 8

They go down the hill in a wide open maiden special race to end this tough day. No. 5 Film Freak ran a better than looked effort in his one try down the hill last out and now Tyler Baze gets the call. No. 7 Cimpl Man gets Mike Smith and that is a plus in this race. 5-7 (all)
