SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Interesting that Joel Rosario jumps on No. 2 Missie Ky I You a 5yo mare who has had 15 chances at breaking her maiden, she has hit the board in nine of those races and this is the best jock she has had so we need to use her. No. 3 Cee’s the Year ran ok here back in October and now drops into a maiden claimer for the first time, No. 6 One Fast Frog ran second the only time she was in a maiden claimer. This race looks paceless but Rosario just may have send on his mind. 2-3-6

Race 2

The last time Kevin Krigger rode No. 1 Highway Bandit a Steve Sherman Golden Gate interloper he got the win, this 5yo gelding will now attempt 1 ¼ on the grass, dad Art sends out No. 2 Dynamic Host who will have no problem getting the distance. No. 6 Slim Shadey comes off a nice win here at this distance. 1-2-6

Race 3

No. 5 Cat In the Forest gets his first start off the Hess claim. He is in top form and Rosario sticks, we will single in the picks. 5**

Pick three

1st 2-3-6

2nd 1-2-6

3rd 5

Race 4

No. 3 Flashy Dame gets off the rail in this her second lifetime start and exits a key race. Look for a big effort and that last 5 furlong work says go! No. 6 Nihilist comes off the layoff for Sadler and looks like the speed of the speed in here. 3-6

Race 5

Maiden fillies going a flat mile on the grass and that could be dicey, trainer Barry Abrams sends out two but the one we will take a shot with is No. 4 Our Heat who will be a big price but is bred to get it, No. 7 Spring Bloom is the filly to beat off her two turf sprints. 4-7

.50 cent pick five

1st 2-3-6

2nd 1-2-6

3rd 5

4th 3-6

5th 4-7 for$18

Race 6

No. 4 Hey Yup comes off a very impressive maiden breaker here on Jan 6th and fits with these, No. 8 Put It There gets his second start here since shipping in from Gulfstream Park. He will get a good stalking trip from his outside post with Rosario taking the mount. 4-8

Race 7

No. 2 Matto Mondo comes off a nice win here at this mile distance on the grass and jockey Alicea is having a productive meet, No. 6 Golden Mexico will try and steal it on the front end. No. 10 Muny will be right on the tail of Golden Mexico. 2**-6-10

Exacta box 2-6-10 and bet the 2 to win

Race 8

No. 3 Tale Be Told ran good here at this level in his last start and has a sharp 5 furlong drill since that signals his readiness to run, No. 11 Zander is a live first time starter for a very sneaky barn and his dam has dropped two winners from two starters. No. 12 Royal Alexander could be the speed of the speed in here. 3-11**-12

$1 pick three

6th 4-8

7th 2-6-10

8th 3-11-12 for $18

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1

This is one bad five horse race and we will do the pass. NO PLAY

Race 2

No. 1 Point Lobos has won six of his twelve starts here and is looking for the hat trick, back classer No. 2 Tribesman drops and is the speed. 1-2

Race 3

This race is almost as bad as the first and we have no recommendation. NO PLAY

Race 4

No. 1 Royal Stormer gets off the grass, gets a drop in class and a turn back in distance. Look for a big run today off of that 4 furlong work on Jan 15th, No. 2 Bye Bye See Ya is in from Hollywood and lands in a top barn and gets Baze. No. 4 Pale Outlaw loses Baze but gets John and maybe a better price. 1-2-4

Tri box 1-2-4

Race 5

No. 1 Man Overboard will try and run down No. 2 Dashing. No. 4 Saros Secret will rebound in here today. 1-2-4

Play a Q box 1-2-4

Race 6

No. 1 Image Of Super missed by a head in her last start at this mile distance and now gets the cozy rail, if able to stay clear she could get the win this time around, No. 2 Miracle Road comes off a nice win in her last start at this mile distance. No. 6 Blarney Kiss is the lone speed and could take them back to back. 1-2-6

Race 7

No. 1 Tribal Sign drops to the claiming price of his last win and gets Mawing back in the irons if able to clear early he will be gone, No. 3 Dixie Trouper gets in with non winners of three races and John gets the leg up. Look for him to be making a big late run. 1-3

Race 8

No. 1 Pat’s Paradise gets his second start here at the Gate, he gets off the grass and takes a drop in class, No. 5 From Here To There ran a big race in his last start going a mile on the grass, he is this one to beat. 1-5

.50 cent pick four

5th 1-2-4

6th 1-2-6

7th 1-3

8th 1-5 for $18
