SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No.3 Sallyana won at first asking for trainer Kory Owens at Turf Paradise in the Arizona Breeders’ futurity by four lengths. She will be the speed in here. No.4 Majestic Stinger gets back with her friends after running in the 100k Sharp Cat at a 1 1/16. No.5 Spooky Lady gets her second start off the Sadler claim. 3-4-5

Race 2

No.1 Wild Media has been working super here and will like this 7 furlong distance and jockey Joe Talamo has been red hot. No.2 Scarly Charly gets a major rider upgrade. Baffert sends out his  usual two in here. The one we like is No.7 Indian Gods who gets her second start and the perfect post. 1-2-7

Exacta box 1-2-7

Race 3

Jockey Bejarano has ridden No.2 Clinton two times and won both, the only two wins this gelding owns. No.4 Omar drops back to the level of his last win. 2-4

Exacta box 2-4 and win and place 2

Race 4

4yo and up straight maidens go down the hill. No.5 Valdirone lost by a neck when sprinting on the Hollywood 6 furlong turf course. Trainer John Shirreffs has been sending out nothing but live first time starters and he saddles first time starter No.8 Public Interest off some nice works. No.7 Empty Headed will be making a late run. 5-7-8

Race 5

Maiden 50k 3yo fillies going 6 furlongs. No.1 Lady Katfish burned some more cash last time out and takes another drop in class. No.4 Julio’s Gold ran a nice even race in her first start against the Lady Katfish and can only move forward. 1-4

Race 6

25k claimers go a flat mile on the grass. No.5 Rightful Image gets back to his best game. No.1 Cloud Hopper gets a needed drop in class and will be right there. No.9 Our Boy Benjamin exits the same race as the Cloud Hopper. 1-5-9

Exacta box 1-5-9

Race 7

No.1 Sky Kingdom comes back from a long layoff for Baffert  but has been working great. No.2 Blueskiesnrainbows ran against the best 3yo last year and now makes his 4yo debut. No.3 Kate’s Event love this course and will be making a late run at them. Mike Mitchell claimed No.4 Gladding for 50k and runs him back in 12 days for $62,500. He is good at this game. 1-2-3-4

Race 8

We end the day ( no Golden Gate today) with a 20k maiden claimer. No.2 Marv has been looking for a race and looks to have found a good spot. No.6 Arch Your Back looks live at first asking for trainer Cerin. No.12 Deception Free is the one to beat with the drop back to this level. 2-6-12
