SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 4 Stanwyck has hit the board in all three of her starts but has failed as the chalk in her last two. She now will try the dirt and that could get her home. We will single in the players pick five. 4

Race 2

Just five listed runners in this race. We will use No. 1 Justa Gusta as Tyler will be gunning from the rail, No. 2 Zoom Bag the closer and No. 3 Old Man Lake who will be stalking. 1-2-3

Race 3

Maidens going a flat mile on the grass. Jockey Corey Nakatani looks to be heating up and he stays on No. 4 Mr T Bird who ran good on this mile turf course in his last start finishing a good 3rd and he had a real nice 4 furlong work since. No. 5 Money Talker missed by a nostril at Del Mar in his last start going this distance on the grass. 4-5

Race 4

50k maidens traveling a mile on the dirt. No. 2 Lite That Baby Up ran a good one in his first start at Fairplex going 1 1/8 on the dirt. He has been in study work since. No. 3 Dylan Donnelly drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and is the one to beat. 2-3

Down the hill we go. No. 5 Smokey Lonesome is in top form and rarely runs a bad race and Talamo won with him four out of the seven times he was on and he gets back on today. No. 6 Sweet Swap just won on this course in his last start. 5-6

Race 8

20k maiden fillies and mares going 5 ½ furlongs. No. 4 R Doubleday drops back to his claimed price and is the one to beat at short odds. No. 12 Indian Magique drops from a straight maiden to the bottom and will be much improved at this level and that last work says go! 4-12

No. 1 Da Jersey Express drops trying to cash as he will try to beat the odds on No. 5 Jones Brother. 1-5

Race 3

No. 3 Noise of the Crowd is always right there and Julien Couton will give her the perfect ride. She will need to be perfect to beat No. 4 Gotnaceupersleeve.
