SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Trainer Doug O’Neill is trying everything today to get the win with No. 3 Russdiculous, he drops him into a maiden claimer for the first time, puts blinkers on and Leparoux gets the leg up, he will be odds on and only one of the first time starters can beat him. 3

Race 2

No. 2 Distracting moves from Grade 2 company to this non winners of 2 allowance race, Baffert has her perfectly spotted. No. 4 Quizzical is in top form and likes this track, she will be making a late run. 2-4

Race 3

We get maidens going down the hill. No. 7 Celebrity Status ran good in his one and only on a wet track and is suited for this course. No. 8 Kilat exits the same race and gets a good post for this. 7-8

Double

2nd 2-4

3rd 7-8

Race 4

No. 2 Lets Get Frisky may be a good price play in here as this first time starter is out of the dam Iza Bay who has dropped 5 winners from 5 starters including a stakes winner. Maldonado will be playing catch me if you can with No. 6 Tribal Spy, if she gets loose it will be over but she will need to contend with the very fast No. 7 Rockin Cowgirl as these two may circle the field together. 2-6-7

Exacta box 2-6-7

Race 5

We get 4-year-old and up going 1¼ on the grass. No. 5 Saint Loup ran second at this distance in his only try in France and gets his second start in the states. No. 6 Bright Thought ran huge in his first turf start and will be all alone on the front end. 5-6

Race 6

No. 1 Spacecoast was a rousing winner last time out when exiting our HTW list and can repeat. Stevens hops aboard No. 5 Royal Tiger who will be making a late run. No. 6 Peppy Bolly gets off the grass and also will be running late. 1-5-6

Race 7

3-year-olds go a mile on the grass. No. 1 Aerial Artist gets Leparoux for this. No. 4 Square Dancer ships in from Gulfstream and lands in the barn of Peter Miller and Gomez rides. 1-4

In the last leg of the late pick four we have 4-year-old and up 20k maiden claimers. No. 2 Danny’s Memory has a shot first out of the box. No. 5 Green Team will show all of his speed with Tyler taking over. No. 7 Banged His Eye drops from a straight maiden race and will go much better at this level. No. 11 Three Buttons Down ran his best race at this 5½ furlong distance in his only try at this level. 2-5-7-11

.50 cent pick four
