SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 Mysterious Miracle is a first time starter for D’Amato, this 4yo filly has been working with a purpose. Baffert sends out No. 3 Mighty Mousse who really has burned some serious cash in her first two starts losing at .40 cents on the dollar and .50 cents on the dollar. Baffert’s go to rider Martin Garcia gets off of Mighty Mousse and rides the Hollendorfer runner No. 5 Mr. Pucci as Bejarano who rode Mr. Pucci in his first two starts moves to Mighty Mousse and by the way Mr. Pucci lost at .90 cents on the dollar in his last start. 2-3-5

Race 2

No. 4 Mr. Game Seven ran a big race in his first going long on the dirt. No. 6 And Then Some drops from a solid effort going long with straight maidens. 4-6

Race 3

Hopefully the rains are gone as this will go 1-1/8 on the grass and we don’t know how the grass will be playing after all the rain so tread lightly. No. 4 Fishel gets back on the grass where he ran three straight bang up races. No. 7 John’s Success exits our HTW list as a $$$ play. He comes off a tough trip and gets his second start off the D’Amato claim. No. 8 Saxon Lord looks the speed of the speed. 4-7**-8

Win and place 7 and an exacta box key the 7 first and second with 7-8

Race 4

We will take our shot here and single No. 2 Book Thirty Four in the players pick five, he gets a big class drop and Prat sticks, trainer O’Neil hits at around 35% with this move. 2

Win and place 2

Race 5

No. 2 Rob’s Pal is in top form as is No. 7 Thunder Basin who beat him last time out, they could run one two in here. 2-7

Race 6

This is scheduled to go down the hill and if so we will side with No. 1 Dead Easy with Kent D in the irons, this 6yo gelding has run his best races with Kent on board. No. 7 Incline Village has run well on this course and is the speed. No. 9 Hunt will try and run them all down late. 1-7-9

Race 7

No. 1 Street Vision may have been best in his last start but got stuck, he ended up losing by less than a length. No. 3 French Getaway got the maiden breaker when stretched out here, he may have found his game. No. 9 Secret Room won his first two starts and now will try and go long. 1-3-9

Race 8

No. 1 Anda ran his best race last time out and now gets a big jock switch to David Lopez. No. 5 Adair loses Lopez but gets Maldo who will be gunning from the bell. No. 8 Uptown Rythem will be out winging from the bell as will No. 10 Profound Visionary. 1-5**-8-10
