SANTA ANITA

Race 1

This is one ugly race to start off with, 8k claiming fillies. No.1 My Diane drops to her lowest level. No.2 Desperate Measures at least has some good form and ran ok on the Fairplex dirt but ran bad here for this price back in March. No.3 Memo To Kathy has some early speed as does No.7 Filly Power. Tyler Baze starts his comeback on No.9 Roulette It Roll. 1-2-3-7-9

Race 2

Not much better in this race as we have 2yo maiden fillies running for 50k and most are not worth half the price. No.2 Secret Memo gets back to sprinting and drops into a maiden claimer for this her fourth start. No.4 Miss Sweet Afleet took action in her one and only and will go better today with the drop into a maiden claimer. No.7 Shand gets Bejarano for this her second start and exits a live race. 2-4-7

Race 3

Down the hill we go, No.1 Caribaya Queen has been working like she is ready to roll. No.6 Graser just may like this downhill turf course. 1-6

Exacta box 1-6 and win and place 6

Race 4

Bejarano gets on the speedy No.6 Run’n On Residuals who will try and take them back to back. No.1 What’s for Dinner will be tracking and he ran right behind him last time out. No.8 Put It There is the other speed in the race and just may hook up. He owns two wins here but takes a nasty drop in class off the 2 month layoff. No.9 Bwana Be Gone won in his only start here last year for 40k. No.11 Beau Royale is looking for his third straight win. 1-6-8-9-11

Race 5

Maiden fillies and mares going a flat mile on the grass. No.3 Level Headed exits our HTW list off a huge effort in her first try going long on the grass. She gets Gomez this time around. No.5 Readyforhercloseup will wake up with the move back to the grass. No.6 Dime Piece ran good going a mile on the Del Mar Synthetic surface and now will try the grass. No.9 Bromelia has been on our HTW list since August after her big try first on the West Coast against Perfecta who came back to score. She will be our play. 3-5-6-9

Key exacta box 9 with 3-5-6 and win and place 9, tri box 3-5-6-9

Race 6

If No.5 Snackable can sit chilly she will win. If she gets into a duel it will cost her. No.6 Sweet Saturday is in top form and will be part of the early pace. No.7 Jesse’s Giacomo will be making a late run at the tiring speed. No.8 Awe’Some Kitten who is the stablemate of Snackabale may have found her true running style when making a late run in her last start after being squeezed off at the start. 5-7-8**

Exacta box 5-7-8 and win and place 8

Race 7

No.2 Splendiferous Moon looked good breaking her maiden going 1 1/8 on the Hollywood grass. She now will go a flat mile on the grass and will be making a late run. No.3 In the Stars ran huge off the layoff and first in the US at Del Mar in August. No.10 Elana Mar has a very interesting work pattern for this race. 2-3-10

Race 8

No.5 Malibu Bullet is a first time starter in what is a very soft group of 20k maiden claimers. She is out of the dam Whistling Bullet who has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters including a stakes winner. No.11 Blessed to Excess will show all her speed at this level. No.12 Taking Form will go better with the drop in class. 5-11-12

Pick four

5th 3-5-6-9

6th 8

7th 2-3-10

8th 5-11-12
