SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Trainer Neil Drysdale has put two 7 furlong works into No. 1 Dr. Spin a second time starter as he sends him long on the dirt. No. 3 Code West has burned some money in his three starts but will be right there once again. 1-3

Race 2

No. 2 Roman Charity drops back to his original claimed price and gets Tyler in the irons. No. 6 Single N Lovin It is a live Emerald Downs invader who is on a win every other race pattern and this is her win race. 2-6

Race 3

No. 4 Drift King is well suited for this down hill turf course and is in top form. No. 6 Off the Wall had a race over the course and had a big work here on the 17th. 4-6

Exacta box 4-6

Race 4

No. 5 Happy Together drops in class and gets back to the dirt. He will find a fast early pace to make his late run. No. 6 Hammer the Bay exits the same race and may be the speed of the speed. 5-6

Double

3rd 4-6

4th 5-6

Race 5

Maiden fillies and mares go down the hill. No. 5 Fantastic Mizz made her first start last year at Keendland and now shows up here in the John Shirreffs barn and may be a much faster filly as a 3yo. She is a must use with her dangerous speed and Brice Blanc getting the leg up. No. 7 Wunderbar will improve with the move to the turf. No. 9 Marcyjane exits our HTW list off a good try going down the hill in her first start. She gets Gomez this time around and is the one to beat. No. 10 Eileen’s Dream has had her shots but her speed will be a danger in here. 5-7-9-10

Race 6

No. 3 Groovin’ Solo was tossed to the wolves in his last three starts and he placed in a more realistic spot. No. 4 Planet Sunshine rarely runs a bad race. No. 5 My Samurai Warrior ran good at this distance here in his only start on this course and he has been working with a purpose. 3-4

Race 7

No. 3 English Rhythm has hit the board in all three of her turf starts and now will go down the hill. She will love it. No. 6 Purim’s Dancer exploded to win her turf start at Arlington Park and now comes West and is well spotted. 3-6

Race 8

Trainer Mike Mitchell finally pulls the plug on No. 2 Miss Communication as he drops her to the bottom of the maiden claiming ranks. The good thing is that Talamo is back on and this is a good percentage move by Mitchell. We will single in the late pick four. 2

Pick four

Double

Exacta box 2-4-6
