SANTA ANITA

Race 1

This is scheduled to go a mile on the grass. No. 1 Starlite Style exits our HTW list off a solid second first out despite trouble going this mile turf distance and the price will be right with the low profile Saul Arias in the irons. No. 4 All That Heat exits the same race in which she had the misfortune of breaking from the far outside. No. 8 Allsquare also exits the race and she finished third. 1-4-8

Exacta box 1-4-8

Race 2

No. 2 Diablo Caballero is a 14 time loser but he did win last October but had his number taken down, he gets his second try at this $20k level. No. 3 Tossin Bullets is tossed in with claimers for the first time by Baffert, the good news is that his top jock gets the call. No. 5 Walking On Water was sent off at 3/2 in his last start and finished a good second, he looks the one to beat. 2-3-5

Race 3

No. 2 Art of War is a thirteen time loser but ran a good second last out when dropped to this level. No. 4 Lob City is wheeled back in just six days by Craig Dollase and Maldo will try and take him wire-to-wire. No. 6 Regal Lady gets her first try at this $20k level. 2-4**-6

Race 4

We will go singling in the pick five taking our shot with No. 4 Miss Gifted who gets to go long on the grass again, we look for her to storm home for the win. 4

Win and place 4

Race 5

The last time No. 5 Derby Glass won was when Bejarano rode him and he gets back on today. No. 6 Mr. Cartagena will be on or near the front end and has hit the board in all three of his starts here. 5-6

Race 7

No. 2 Tiz a Kiss gets back to a better level and hopefully a firm turf course, she won one race back when Bejarano rode her and he gets back on today. No. 3 Evo Campo exits a good race and will be right there. 

2-3

Race 8

No. 2 Heed to Speed will sit off the hot pace and strike turning for home. No. 5 Hail Mary Play exits a good race in which she finished second and the one who beat her came back to win again, she is the filly to beat. 2-5
