SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Ipray exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, she raced against the bias last out on a wet fast course, she surged late to just miss by a nostril on the line, she has come back to work well and Bejarano sticks, we will single in the picks. 3

Win and place 3

Race 2

Very little early speed in this 1-1/16 route for 25k claimers. No. 1 Prime Issue gets the rail and the stretchout and may find himself all alone on the front end. No. 4 Fly Lexis Fly drops and gets off the grass and will be right on the tail of Prime Issue. No. 6 No Problem drops and gets the stretchout, she will show more speed today. 1-4-6

Race 3

No. 1 French Getaway has been first and second in his two races and is the one to beat. No. 4 Malibu Sunset comes to town from the Fairgrounds where he won first out by 10-lengths, he lands in the barn of Bob Baffert and gets Flavien Prat. Baffert also sends out No. 6 Electrifying off a big maiden score and sends him long for the first-time. 1-4-6

Race 4

THE 75K JOE HERNANDEZ GOING DOWN THE HILL

No. 2 Hunt comes off a good win in his first try down the hill and owns a bullet work since. No. 3 Papacoolpapacool gets some class relief and a turn back in distance, he is the stablemate of Hunt. No. 6 Guns Loaded must have them loaded as O’Neill wheels him back in just 8 days off a win. 2-3-6

Race 5

No. 3 And Then Some has been stuck in second in his last three starts and now gets his first try off the Kristin Mulhall claim and has a nice last work, we will take our shot and single him. 3

Race 6

No. 4 Zip the Monkey exits our HTW list off a good try vs. the bias last out, he gets back on the grass today and will be blasting home. No. 11 Durango Flier gets back to a better level and will also be blasting home late with Bejarano getting back on today. 4-11

Race 7

Maiden 3yo fillies go 7 furlongs. No. 1 Social Column has been working like a real runner for her debut. No. 6 Emmzy had her race and will go better today at this longer distance. No. 7 Lily exits a tough heat in her debut race and will also go better her second time around. No. 8 Georgia Blue exits our HTW list off a solid second in her first start going down the hill, if she can handle the dirt she will be a player in here. 1-6-7-8

Race 9

No. 1 Odisseia will blast from her rail post and try and take them wire-to-wire. No. 2 West Coast Storm gets a huge jock switch as they move to the grass. 1-2
