SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 He’s Very Rare looks to have a pace advantage on the rest, Rosario will gun him from the bell and play catch me if you can, No. 1 Corner Office has a good work since his last on the grass and now gets back to the dirt and the distance of his win. 1-2**

Race 2

No. 3 Solar Rocket is very fast and will be out winging it once again but comes off a huge effort off the layoff and runs for a new barn, No. 4 Hasty Trend has rounded into form and will be making a late run. 3-4

Race 3

No. 2 Relentless Heat owns a win going down the hill one race back and comes off a good try at a mile on the grass, No. 6 Mint Humor is the speed and may not get caught today. 2-6

Race 4

No. 3 Treacherous looks ready to fire a big shot off that four furlong work on the 3rd and the bug boy gets the leg up. No. 7 Regulus and No. 8 Designer are two first time starters with win early breeding. 3-7-8

Race 5

In the last leg of the pick five we have 3yo maidens going a mile on the grass, look for a big turnaround with No. 3 Aqua Revelation whose sire English Channel has been smoking with his turf runners, he gets his second start for Baffert after going down the hill last time out, he will love this mile distance, No. 4 Currahee gets a major rider upgrade in this his second try on the grass. Trainer John Sadler sends out two but the one we like is the comebacker No. 7 Majestic Moment with Gomez riding. 3-4-7

Race 6

THE GRADE 1 SANTA ANITA DERBY

Most of these get their last shot at the first Saturday in May as its all about money now but a few already have enough graded earnings to go, like No. 1 Creative Cause, one of the top Kentucky Derby runners this year, this son of Giant’s Causeway has never been off the board in seven career starts and Rosario fits like a glove but just doesn’t think he will be cranked 100% for this race as Mike Harrington wants him to peak on Derby Day, so just get a good run today with no problems. Bob Baffert sends out three runners but the one that really looks ready to upset is No. 2 Liaison as he gets Bejarano back in the irons and he was on for all three of his wins. No. 4 I’ll Have Another freaked on this course off the layoff for Doug O’Neill who keeps the low profile Mario Gutierrez in the irons. Baffert also sends out second time starter No. 6 Paynter who broke his maiden by more than four lengths at .40 cents on the dollar while under a hand ride and Bob’s main man Martin Garcia sticks with him, he will insure a fast pace as Mr. Bob may try to take this guy back to back. Carla Gaines sends out the tough No. 8 Midnight Transfer who ran third in the San Felipe behind Creative Cause. 1-2-4-6-8

.10 cent super box 1-2-4-6-8

Race 7

It has been a long time between wins for No. 1 Oilisblackgold but he should be legged up for this mile dirt race off of his last start going 1 ¼ on the grass here on March 24th, No. 3 Thunder Canyon looked good winning here at 7 furlongs last time out and this lightly raced 4yo gelding should love this mile race. With all the early speed in here No. 5 Ain could get the perfect setup. 1-3-5

Race 8

No. 1 Lady of Shamrock is looking for her third win here on the grass and she gets the cozy rail in the Grade 3 Providencia Stakes. Comebacker Island Paradise has never run a bad race in her three starts last year, she looks live off the layoff. 1-3

Exacta box 1-3

Race 9

In the Grade 2 Potrero Grande No. 1 Sway Away gets his second start off the layoff and also exits our HTW list off a fast closing second last time out, No. 2 Amazombie also gets his second start off the layoff and he ran right behind Sway Away. Baffert sends out recent maiden winner No. 5 Roman Threat who exits our HTW list, this 4yo gelding ran huge in his win. 1-2-5

Race 10

In the American Beauty Stakes we go a mile on the grass, No. 2 Calle Vista is very fast and likes this course, she is live off the layoff for Dick Mandella, Rosario takes the ride on No. 4 Belle Royale who is in from over the pond for trainer Simon Callaghan, she gets first time lasix and she won her last three starts at three different distances. No. 9 Go Forth North comes off the long layoff for trainer A C Avila but she likes this mile distance and has faced much tougher in her career. 2-4-9

Race 11

In the last leg of the late pick four No. 1 Midnight Con will be right there if he can stay out of trouble from his rail post in this 7 furlong race, No. 5 Swiss Game has some early speed and will hold better today on a fast track in this his second start off the layoff and Rosario sticks. No. 12 Tarsus looks very sneaky first out of the box with Sutherland riding, this 3yo gelding is out of the dam Takeaway who has dropped five winners from five starters including two stakes winners. 1-5-12
