SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 5 Cariboo Road is in from Emerald Downs and the perennial top jock there Mario Gutierrez will ride. No. 6 Surprise Sale is in from Golden Gate and gets Joe Talamo in the irons. He will find a hot early pace to make his late run. 5-6

Race 2

Down the hill we go. No. 2 Pogonip woke up big time on this course in her last start when breaking her maiden with a convincing win. Carla Gaines has had her in steady works since and that last 6 furlong work says she is ready. No. 9 Lemon Hero missed by a nostril on the bob here in her last start and Bejarano will give her a good outside trip. She will be flying late. No. 10 Indecise ran right behind Lemon Hero and now Gomez will ride. 2-9-10

Exacta box 2-9-10

Double

1st 5-6

2nd 2-9-11

Race 3

No. 5 Miles Heir remains in top form and Maldonado sticks with him. No. 7 Asset Play is the stablemate of Miles and he lost by a neck to him last time out. No. 8 Aqua Fever likes this track. 5-7-8

Race 4

No. 9 Nice Meidel will get a perfect stalking trip from this post going down the hill. No. 11 Ghost N Your Heart will be the one to fear late at what will be a good price. 9-11

Race 5

No. 3 Only the Gold drops to the bottom of the maiden claiming ranks but gets Bejarano and blinkers off as trainer Marty Jones looks to be pulling all the punches for the win. No. 6 Eyesablazin put in a good effort when losing by a half length when pressed from the bell in his first try going long. 3-6

Race 6

No. 4 Star Navigator doesn’t look like much but he does own a win here and that last 6 furlong work looks like he will be live in here at what will be a big price. Another who looks live at a big price is No. 6 Lewdawg N Paradise who comes off a four month layoff but Maldonado will ride and that is a good sign. No. 10 Bling Cha Bling will show all of his speed on the stretchout. 4-6-10

Race 7

Maiden fillies and mares going a flat mile on the grass. No. 3 Dime Piece has run some races that would beat this crew especially her effort here back on October 5th. No. 4 Belonging may like the move to the grass. No. 5 Fantaastic Mizz has run back to back seconds in her two turf starts, one short and one long. She is a perfect fit. 3-4-5

Race 8

Speed speed and more speed in here. No. 4 Super Ninety Nine showed he could rate going 7 furlongs his last race in the Grade 3 Hollywood Preview stakes and is the colt to beat. No. 6 Know More has been facing some good ones going long and he will be flying late. 4-6

Race 9

In the last leg of the late pick four we have 2yo going 5 ½ furlongs for a claiming price of 30k. Trainer Kory Owens is deadly with first time starters and he sends out first timer No. 3 Awfully Lucky who is out of the dam French Debutante who has dropped 5 winners from 5 starters and 4 of those winners won stakes races and she has been working here since September. No. 5 Intendedconsequen drops into a maiden claimer for this his second start. Tyler Baze will be gunning No. 11 Zippingaroundtown from the bell and if able to clear he could be gone. 3-5-11

Pick four

6th 4-6-10

7th 3-4-5

8th 4-6

9th 3-5-11

GOLDEN GATE

ONLY 7 RACES TODAY

Race 1

This is one terrible race, No. 2 Mommy Go Too is back from a short road trip to Los Al and is the one to beat. 2

Race 2

It don’t get much better in this 5k maiden claimer. No. 3 Bruce Weigh In has run second in three of his four starts. No. 7 Unmatched Force gets his second start and first off the claim and is not a proven loser as yet. 3-7

Race 3

No. 1 Ivory Fudge drops in class and has a nice work for this. No. 5 Lucky Mr. K gets his second start off the layoff and will be at his best today. No. 2 Defying Logic loves this course and is looking for the hat trick. 1-2-5

Race 4

Trainer John Martin moves No. 1 Trumpet Player Jay up one notch off a narrow loss and this is a good move by him. Baze gets the ride on No. 5 Bwana Be Gone who will sit and pounce turning for home. 1-5

Race 5

No. 1 Redo lost at even money in his last start and now drops two classes, but Baze sticks. He will be a mini price. We can’t bet on or against him. 1

Race 6

No. 5 Divas and Diamonds looks live off the layoff. No. 7 Gypsy Spirit is back to a level she can win at. No. 8 Zoe’s Baba is the stablemate of Gypsy and these two could finish one two. 5-7-8

Exacta and tri box 5-7-8

Race 7

Trainer Lloyd Mason sends out the main two in the last race with No. 2 Power of Nine and No. 3 Ribot Belle. They finished one two last time out. 2-3
