SANTA ANITA 

Race 1

Trainer Peter Miller sends out two very live first time starters in this soft $50k maiden claimer for 3yo. No. 1 The Chinaman with Santiago Gonzalez and No. 3 Speed Saver with the newly arrived Stewart Elliott who will try and make his mark on the West Coast. 1-3

Race 2

3yo maiden fillies go a flat mile on the dirt, No. 2 Faithfully and No. 6 Audacious Angel both exit our HTW list and both exit the same race. With Audacious Angel just getting beat by a head and Faithfully well back but was bet down to the favorite at 7/5. 2-6

Race 3

We will go singling here in the pick five using No. 1 Racing for Chasen another who exits our HTW list. This filly just lost by a dwindling neck here at this level in her last start when having a wide trip, no mistakes today for team Desormeaux. 1

Win and place 1

Race 4

In here we get 4yo and up maiden fillies and mares going down the hill. No. 5 Shezroxiie is a first time starter with some nice turf breeding, she could be a price play. No. 10 Our First Girl gets a great post and comes off a big effort down the hill in her one start even though she was DQ after finishing 3rd, the race is a key race and gets Gary Stevens today, she is the one to beat.

5-10

Race 5

No. 3 Prohibition gets a drop in class and looks to wake up at this level. No. 4 Motown Men also drops looking to find his form. No. 6 A Colt Following was scratched last weekend for this spot, he comes off a nice win and moves up in class. After those three, this race would need the all button. 3-4-6 (all)

Race 6

Lots of early zip in this 6 furlong sprint and that leads us to No. 4 Moments Notiz who comes West for the ice cold David Jacobson, we think this will be his first winner and Flavien Prat gets the call. 4

Race 7 

We need to go five deep in this 1-1/8 turf route using No. 2 Socialized, No. 3 Tiz a Classy Lass, No. 4 Gift of a Star, No. 7 Dakota Kid and No. 10 Hiking with the hopes of catching a price. 2-3-4-7-10

Race 8

No. 3 Miss Bliss drops a notch and looks to be sitting on the maiden breaker. No. 11 Sweeter Thancandy just missed last time out at this level by a neck, Bejarano sticks. 3-11

Pick four

5th 3-4-6

6th 4

7th 2-3-4-7-10

8th 3-11

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