SANTA ANITA

Race 1

We get maiden 2yo fillies going 4-1/2 furlongs and Doug O’Neill sends out a Lookin’ At Lucky filly No. 1 You Missed It off a very nice 4 furlong last work. Jeff Bonde who can strike with his 2yo runners sends out first time starter No. 2 Diamondinthecenter who is out of the dam Charming Toutsie who has dropped 6 winners from 6 starters. 1-2

Race 2

No. 1 Chalking It Up gets stretched back out and looks to have a big shot on the drop if able to sit off the hot pace. No. 3 Olotta Shaken gets Bejarano back in the irons and the one time he was on this filly he took her wire-to-wire. 1-3

Race 3

No. 2 High Step Arch moves back up in class and goes down the hill again, he ran a good 3rd the one time he went down the hill and we like Prat getting the call today. No. 3 Majestic Fantasy drops in with maiden claimers for the first time and gets her second off the layoff, she may like the trip. No. 6 Brookes All Mine comes off the layoff for trainer Tom Bell, she looks live. 2-3-6

Race 4

No. 3 Iancol gets back on a fast track going a mile and his last win came here on a fast mile track. No. 4 Last One Standing gets Bejarano riding for Baltas and when these two team up its for the win. 3-4

Race 5

No. 5 Scattagirl won like a good thing off the layoff and looks to have found her game. No. 7 Gypsy’s Rule will sit off the pace and make on run turning for home.

5-7

Pick five

1st 1-2

2nd 1-3

3rd 2-3-6

4th 3-4

5th 5-7

Race 6

There is a ton of early speed in this 5-1/2 furlong sprint. No. 5 Mint Julep Taffy comes off the layoff but showed ability to close before going on the shelf, she looks very live in this spot and will be a square price. No. 7 Reckless Charm gets a big drop in class and comes out of a tough downhill turf sprint. No. 1 Miss Big Stuff exits the same downhill turf race as Reckless Charm. 1-5-7

Race 7

We will take our shot in this 1-1/16 dirt race and single No. 6 Two Taps who loves this course with 2 wins and a third from her three starts, winning her last race here at this distance. 6

Race 8

No. 9 Concord’s Star comes off the layoff for Baffert, he drops him looking for the win and claim. No. 10 Regal Reign is wheeled back in just 13 days by David Bernstein and Kent D sticks around for the ride, he will be a nice price. 9-10
