SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 4 Deeds Not Words drops into a maiden claimer for the first time, look for the big turnaround today. No. 6 Blue Chat ran a good race when moved to this level last out and looks the one to beat. 4-6

Race 2

No. 5 Cause Ur My Babe drops back to a better level. No. 6 Smooth Talker is on a win every other race pattern which she has done three times, this is her win race. No. 7 Papaslilprincess gets a drop and a good post for this.

5-6-7

Race 3

In this 7 furlong straight maiden race we will start with two first time starters. No. 2 Mysterious Miracle for D’Amato who has been working a hole in the wind. No. 5 Calm the Sea for Hollendorfer who also look ready to fire a big shot. No. 7 Silver Spectacle is the stablemate of Mysterious Miracle, she gets off the grass and now will try the dirt in start number 3, D’Amato has been right on when he runs two in the same race. 2-5-7

Race 4

No. 4 Lucy in Diamonds has hit the board in all three of her turf starts with 2 wins and a second. No. 7 Miss Double d’Oro just missed going down the hill last out by a nostril in her first off the layoff, he goes long today. No. 8 Journey On gets some class relief and should go better in this spot. 4-7-8

Race 5

No. 4 Highway Boss exits our HTW list and gets his first start off the Hollendorfer claim, he has won 3 of 6 on this dirt course. No. 7 Just Kidding finished right behind the Highway Boss one race back. 4-7

Race 6

No. 3 Comes the Dream gets a huge drop in class and he gets on dirt, all is not right but a must use. No. 5 Commander King move up off the win for Sadler. No. 8 Thanksgiving Day drops and looks the speed at this level. 3-5-8

Race 7

No. 5 Optimism And Hope exits our HTW list off a very troubled trip, a race she should have won. No. 8 Mokat gets back on the grass and will go much better with Prat getting the call. No. 9 Mirage gets some class relief. 5-8-9

Exacta box 5-8-9 and win and place 5

Race 8

We get $10k claimers going 1-1/16 in a real puzzle. We will go stabbing using No. 3 Valentine Boy with the light weight, he will be on or near the pace and could get a jump on them all turning for home. No. 4 Day of Fury gets Bejarano riding in the last race and that is always a plus, he rides the Aqueduct shipper for Jacobson who is going to heat up very soon, this one also has early speed. 3-4

Pick four

5th 4-7

6th 3-5-8

7th 5-8-9

8th 3-4

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