SANTA ANITA

Race 1

The last time Gomez rode No. 3 Love Tale a mile on the grass he got the win, No. 4 Lanida just may get the jump on them out of the gate and if so could be gone before the others know what happened. 3-4

Race 2

We will give No. 5 Lady Shazzam one more shot with Maldo getting onboard, No. 2 Party in Excess has her claiming price hacked in half and will go long for the first time, she may like it. 2-5

No. 1 Princess of Pearl is a first time starter with a good work and a hot jockey, No. 5 What a Spot is a first time starter whose dam has dropped three winners from three starters including a stakes winner. 1-5

Race 4

Win and place 6

Race 5

No. 1 Chinese Praise exits out HTW list and gets a major boost in class off the O’Neill claim, has he figured this one out? Trainer Julio Canani is having a good meet and he sends out No. 6 Stoneside a 9yo gelding in good form. 1-6

Race 6

No. 3 Deacon Speakin’ is in top form and is a must use in the exotics and the same can be said for No. 10 Shadow Runner, both look to have a very good shot in this tough race. 3-10

Race 7

THE GRADE 2 SAN ANTIONIO 200K

No. 2 Game on Dude who has won five of his six starts here will once again be odds on but will need to contend with No. 4 Chosen Miracle on the front end and if those two get into it someone could lite up the tote and that someone could be No. 1 Clubhouse Ride who will be sitting back hoping that the speed comes back. 1-2-4

Exacta box 1-2-4 and tri box 1-2-4

Race 8

Maiden 3yo fillies go a mile on the grass, No. 4 Roust ‘em Bertie ran good in her only try going a mile on the Hollywood grass when finishing second, No. 5 John’s War is a second time starter who finished 6th behind Bertie but had a troubled trip, she is bred for this and will improve today.

Key exacta box 5 with 4-6-8 and win and place 5
