SANTA ANITA

Race 1

The ice cold David Jacobson wheels back No. 2 You Know I Know in just 7 days and drops him below the claimed price, the good news is that Bejarnano gets the call. No. 5 Nobel Kent is in top form and moves up off the claim, he has a good last work. 2-5

Race 2

No. 3 Dirt in Your Face gets a big jock switch to Flavien Prat and that last work has him ready to roll, we will single in the pick five. 3

WIN AND PLACE 3

Race 3

No. 1 Hill Four Eleven becomes claim proof after wiring his field first out of the box. No. 3 Edzactly also won first by more than nine lengths, he gets his first start off the O’Neill claim and Dough must like when he bought as he also runs him in this claim proof starter race. No. 4 Poythress will try and run down the top two. 1-3-4

Race 4

We get the newly arrived Stewart Elliott riding No. 5 Kelbaker for Peter Miller. No. 7 Altaira drops and gets Bejarano, look for a big effort today. 5-7

Race 5

This is one tough mile turf race and it really calls for the all button but we will try and break it down to No. 5 So Golden who comes off a better than looked effort going 1-1/8 on the grass at this level. No. 6 Housemaker whose only win came here at this mile turf distance and No. 8 Blondy’s Reward. 5-6-8 (all)

Race 6

No. 2 Reckless Charm moves from the turf back to the dirt and has a big last work on the 23rd. No. 4 Skye Diamonds exits the same race and will also like getting back to sprinting on the dirt. No. 5 Dragon Flower has only been worse than second one time in her six starts. 2-4-5

Race 7

Down the hill they go, No. 8 Behset gets her first taste of the grass and trainer D’Amato has been the go to guy in these downhill turf sprints. No. 9 Zuzu’s Petals really never got out of the gate when coming out of the one hole last out but made a nice late run and she exits our HTW list. No. 10 Sharaun exits the same race as the top two and will show all of her speed from this post, she has won sprinting on the grass in the past. 8-9-10

Exacta box 8-9-10

Race 8

Trainer David Jacobson really looks like he needs a win as he drops No. 2 I’m Not Bullish into this $30k maiden claimer after claiming him for $40k, the good news is that Bejarano gets on board and he has been super when riding in the last race, we will single. 2

WIN AND PLACE 2

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