SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Trainer Mike Puype drops No. 5 Stormin Trick from a 50k maiden claimer to this 20k maiden claimer, he hits at 70% when dropping two or more classes. No. 2 Granny’s Bling was well bet in his debut race but never got untracked but has come back to work a bullet. No. 3 Bistro Lights looks to be knocking on the door. 2-3-5

Race 2

No. 10 The Silent One looks to be set for graduation off his last start and the fact that Bejarano gets the call leads us to him, we will single in the pick five. 10

Race 3

THE GRADE III LAS FLORES

In the six furlong Las Flores there will be lots of heat up front. No. 3 Fantastic Style who has won 4 of 6 starts with a second and a third can sit right off the hot pace and pounce turning for home, we will single again. 3

Race 4

Maiden 3yo fillies go down the hill in a wide open affair. No. 4 Lori’s Attitude is a first-time starter for Carla Gaines who is bred for the grass and has been working like a runner. No. 5 Amber Louise finished second just in front of No. 6 Newcomb last out going down the hill and both will be right in the thick of things down the lane. 4-5-6

Exacta box 4-5-6

Race 5

No. 4 Airfoil moves up again off the win and is in top form and will get plenty of pace to make his run. No. 5 Story to Tell comes off the layoff but loves this course and is a good fit at this level. No. 7 Seeking the Sherif loves to win races, he has won 8 of 15 here. 4-5-7

Pick five

1st 2-3-5

2nd 10

3rd 3

4th 4-5-6

5th 4-5-7

Race 6

In this mile turf race No. 1 De Treville is in from France for John Shirreffs and he puts his main rider Mike Smith up. No. 6 Yes Yes Yes gets some class relief and that last work here on the 16th says he is ready. 1-6

Race 7

Maiden 3yo run for a 75k price tag. No. 4 Fashionly Handsome ran a huge second in his first start for 50k. No. 6 Latest Craze looks the one to beat off his good try with straight maidens in his one start. No. 8 Opportunistic also drops out of a good try with straight maidens. 4-6-8

Race 8

THE 75K SAN PEDRO

In the six furlong San Pedro Baffert sends out two runners with No. 1 Mt Veeder who was up against it last out going long vs. Nyquist in the Grade I Frontrunner and the speedy No. 6 Toews On Ice. No. 5 Denman’s Call is a nice up and comer for O’Neill and looks the one to beat down the lane. 1-5-6

Race 9

Starter allowance runners go a flat mile on the grass, D’Amato sends out No. 1 Larry Birdstone off the layoff, he looks set for a big effort. No. 3 Aren Vaughn looked good breaking his maiden down the hiill last out and worked a bullet here on the 10th. Bejarano sticks around and gets on No. 4 Fishel whose win came when Bejarano rode him going this mile turf distance. 1-3-4
