SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Dissension gets Bejarano taking a rare ride for trainer Victor Garcia who is looking for his first win at the meet, he has a big shot to get it. No. 4 McBoomer had a nice turf prep down the hill and is ready to stretchout. 1-4

Race 2

Trainer John Sadler sends out two runners in this one. No. 2 Souper Knight first off the $62,500 claim and the speedy No. 5 Yiannis, he could run one two. 2-5

Race 3

No. 1 Righteous Ruler was well bet in his one start and rewarded his backers with the win. He goes from 5-1/2 furlongs to a 1-1/16, not an easy task. No. 4 Tough it Out is proven at the distance and looks the one to beat. 4**-1

Race 4

No. 2 Ziconic gets his second start for Shirreffs and this colt was just flying late when going 7 furlongs, he goes 1-1/16 today and gets Smith who rode his sister. No. 3 Magical Mystery was bet like a good thing in his first start on the 12th when sent off at 7/5, he never ran a step and Baffert wheels him back. No. 4 Uninvited exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, bet him to cash. No. 7 Dalmore finished in front of Ziconic and is a must use. 4**-2-3-7

Race 7

Exacta box 1-6-8

Race 8

Down the hill they go. No. 1 Mr. Sexy gets back to his game after getting stuck on off tracks when the races came off the grass, he will try and take them wire-to-wire. No. 3 Rangi gets Desormeaux back on and the last time he was on this gelding going down the hill he got the win but he has other speed to contend with. No. 7 Zuri Chop gets a little drop second off the layoff and looks the price play. No. 6 I’LL Wrap It Up will be making a late run. 1-3-6-7

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