SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 Madame Mousse has run on this downhill turf course two times with a win and a second, she owns a big bullet work here on the 1st which sets her up for a big run. No. 9 My Palmilla comes off the layoff for Glatt, this filly looks very sneaky. No. 10 Summer Wine ran good sprinting at five furlongs on the grass last year and will love this course and post. No. 11 Behest is stuck on the also list but would be our play if she draws in. 2-9-10-11

Race 2

The one time No. 1 Nine Point Nine went 7 furlongs she won for fun. No. 3 Joan of Arch is in from Turf Paradise for the dangerous trainer Molly Pearson, this one can handle the distance and dirt. No. 5 Pico Chick gets her first start off the Baltas claim and his go to rider Bejarano sticks, she is the speed. 1-3-5

Race 3

No. 1 Pete’s Play Call may have found his level here at the 40k maiden price tag. No. 2 Candy Promises won for fun last out at 30k but had his number taken down, he is a must use. 1-2

Race 4

Maidens go a mile on the grass. No. 2 Name for the Blame is in from Ireland and lands in the barn of Doug O’Neill, he is bred to be anykind. No. 4 Bombard exits our HTW list as a $$$ play, he comes off a troubled trip in his debut race and will love the longer distance today. 2-4

Exacta box 2-4 and win and place 4

Race 5

THE 100K GRADE III ADORATION

Can any of these beat No. 6 Beholder, on paper not even close, she is a must single at 1-9 but if she does get beat the pick five will light up the tote. 6

Race 6

No. 1 Navy Hymn has hit the board in all five of his starts with two wins and three seconds, he gets his first start off the claim and a big boast in class. No. 6 Fans On the Run will sit off the hot pace and try and nail the speed on the line. 1-6

Race 7

No. 3 Opsec exits our HTW list off a big win here on the grass back on April 2nd, he has worked well since and is a must use. No. 7 Electrifying also exits our HTW list and will take to the grass. No. 4 Temple Keys gets his second off the layoff and will be making a big late run. 3-4-7

Race 8

No. 4 Senna is in from the Gate for Morey and looks live in this very soft group of 8k claimers. No. 7 Misdeed also is in from the Gate and fits with these. 4-7

Race 9

We get a wide open turf race to end the day as they go 1-1/8. No. 4 Undeniable U got good once moved to the grass and has hit the board in all five of his grass starts. No. 6 Excessive Kid is a good fit with these. Bejarano gets back on No. 8 John’s Success who gets back on the grass. 4-6-8

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