SANTA ANITA

Race 1

We start a huge day of racing at the Great Race Place and most of these races today are very wide open starting with this race, No. 4 Code West last at .80 cents on the dollar for Baffert in his last start but Bob hits at around .37% with next out beaten favorites. No. 5 Cinco De Mario gets Mario in the irons and that would be Mario Gutierrez and this colt exits our HTW list. No. 6 Buckleberry Grey tried some toughies on the grass in his last start and he ran a bang up race. He is now back with maidens and will try the dirt. No. 7 Title Contender is the other Baffert and he will go long in this his second start. He looks to be the speed of the speed. 4-5-6-7

Race 2

No. 1 Sir Newcastle drops into a maiden claimer in this his comeback race. No. 10 Thirteen Black drops back into a maiden claimer after attempting to go long on the grass. No. 11 Awkward Mondays ran on the grass in his first two starts in straight maiden races and now drops and will try the dirt. No. 12 Big Man in Black drops into a good spot with the hot riding Maldonado in the irons. 1-10-11-12

Race 3

No. 7 Accelerant is a re-claim by Don Warren and he has been here at Anita working out. No. 8 Make Us Proud can dirt. 7-8

Exacta box 7-8 and win and place 7

Race 4

This one is really wide open and the best we can suggest is No. 11 Fiftyshadesofhay who ran good in her one and only and only needs to move forward a little to get the win. No. 12 Citizenship who is the stablemate of our top pick will be the speed from the outside. 11-12

Race 5

Pick 3

Race 6

THE GRADE 1 CHANDELIER

It’s all about getting a trip to the Breeders Cup. In here we have 11 2yo fillies going 1 1/16 on the dirt. We will go with the undefeated No. 7 Executiveprivilege. Baffert says she is up to the challenge. 7

Race 7

THE GRADE 1 FRONTRUNNER

We now have 11 2yo boys going 1 1/16 on the dirt as Baffert attempts to take both ends. But it will be much harder in this race as he sends out the speedy No. 10 Power Broker off a narrow loss on the grass in the Oaktree Juvenile. The ones he will need to hold off are No. 2 Gabriel Charles, No. 5 Dry Summer his stablemate and No. 7 Know More. 2-5-7-10

Race 8

THE GRADE 1 ZENYATTA

No. 3 Switch has been working with a purpose here and Sadler looks to have him sitting on edge. No. 6 Include Me Out is one tough filly who will not go down without a fight. No. 7 Love and Pride is shipped in by Todd Pletcher and he puts his old go to rider Gomez in the irons. 3-6-7

Exacta box 3-6-7

Race 9

THE GRADE 1 RODEO DRIVE

No. 11 Marketing Mix is as consistent as you can get in Graded races. No. 12 City to City is proven here. 11-12

Race 10

The battle is back on between No. 1 Game On Dude and No. 7 Richard’s Kid who will try and get his first win for his new owners. 1-7

Race 11

Down the hill we go in the Unzip Me. No. 4 Koko Loca exits our HTW list and just may take to this course but she will need to be at her best to beat No. 8 Byrama. 4-8

Pick four

8th 3-6-7

9th 11-12
