SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 One Shot is the lone speed on the rail with P Val in the irons this 8yo gelding will try and take them back to back. No. 4 Island Run and No. 5 Streets Of Heaven will both be in good stalking positions. 1-4-5


Race 2

No. 1 Brereton Park gets his second lifetime start and the extra furlong should be perfect for him. No. 8 Titian drops in class and his speed will play well today with the softer company. 1-8


Race 3

No. 3 Nitro Active gets his first start off the claim and his a proven runner on this dirt course, No. 7 Flashmans Papers ran good here on a wet fast track and looks to be sitting on a good one. 3-7


Race 4

Three is a lot of early speed in the Grade 1 Las Virgenes Stakes for 3yo fillies so that could set up the late kick of No. 2 Bluegrass Chatter who draws Gomez as his last jockey Rosario opts for No. 7 Zazu who will also sit and pounce down the lane. 1-7

Race 5

No. 5 Sweet Hanni broke her maiden on this 6 ½ furlong downhill course and looks live off the layoff with Bejarano riding as the only other time he rode Sweet Hanni resulted in a win.

No. 7 Sierra Spirit is another live first time starter who has a nice 5 furlong drill here on Jan 29th and his sire hits at around 17% with first timers. No. 9 Aldadino exits our HTW list and could offer a real nice price with the low profile Alicea in the irons. 4-7-9

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1

No. 1 Waves Of Honour just ran second against similar, he will get a great stalking trip from the rail, No. 2 Dancin Candy is one tough 10yo gelding. No. 5 Lunch Time will go better at this mile distance. 1-2-5


Race 2

No. 1 Lama Chant is the speed on the rail, they will all be trying to catch him, No. 2 Jones Brother exits the same race a race in which he finished second when exiting our HTW list, Baze jumps on so the price will not be right. No. 5 Western Roses also exits the same race and there may be some value on this closer. 1-2-5**


Key Play

$10 Q 5 with 1-2 for $20

Race 3

No. 4 Mr Munsey exits our HTW list and has the ultra hot connections of Duran/Mason we will single in the early pick four and bet him to win and place. 4

Race 4

This is one sorry group of 8k maiden claimers, No. 6 New Generations at least as shown a few sparks of like now and then, No. 7 Hamonic Moon continues his downward spiral but Baze will try one more time and the Jerry Hollendorfer trained comebacker No. 8 Ironmann looks to be the one to beat on paper. 6-7-8

4th 6-7-8 for $13.50

Race 5

No. 1 Lady Schiller and No. 2 Bold Question both exit the same good race at this flat mile distance a race in which the finished second and third, today they could be one two. No. 6 Excellent Point is in form Santa Anita and will go better today at this cheaper price. 1-2-6


Race 6

We get one of our favorite plays in this $12,500 maiden race as trainer Miyadi has two entered and we know what could happen and has happened in the past, he sends out first time starter No. 3 Yet Anothernatural and this jockey trainer combo of Hernandez/Miyadi has run first or second the last five hook ups with three wins and two seconds. The other Miyadi in the race is No. 7 Luscious Lonna another first time starter with the bug boy Agosto Velazquez in the irons. 3-7


Key Play

$4 Q 3-7 for $4

$10 win and place 3 for $20

Race 7

No. 4 High N Deep gets he bug girl Alice Cartwright in the irons and he has a win on the course at this mile distance. No. 5 Parkbench has been a real steady sort at this price tag and he has a win here at the distance. 4-5


Race 8

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer has two in here but we will side with No. 5 More Than Proud who has done little wrong in her three starts. No. 9 Yasuda has won five of ten lifetime starts and is a must use. 5-9


Race 9

In the last leg of the late pick four we have a lot of early speed going a flat mile so we normally look for someone to come late but there is no one we can back with any confidence so we will sort out the previous races and hit the all button in here. All
