Race 9

We end the day at Santa Anita with 30k maiden claimers going 7 furlongs and this is one back group, No. 1 Got Heem may like this longer distance and will get a good rail trip with Leparoux, after him it is anyones race so hit the all button or take a shot and single. 1 or (all)

No. 1 to win
