SANTA ANITA 

Race 1

No. 2 Et Tu Walker has run three straight good races over this surface. No. 3 Willie Brown looks to have found a good spot and ran a nice second in his last start at this level. No. 4 Magic Beam gets his second start off the layoff and will go better today at what will be a fair price. 2-3-4

Race 2

No. 4 Gallant Fields is in from Aqueduct and lands in the barn of John Sadler, he looks very dangerous. No. 3 Sky Kingdom is one of two Bafferts in here, he will be making a late run. 3-4

Race 3

25k fillies and mares go 1 1/8 on the grass, Tyler Baze will pop No. 3 Hidden Passion from the gate and try to go wire-to-wire. No. 4 Prettypriceygirl had a horrible trip last time out and is the filly to beat with clear sailing down the lane. Sadler wheels back No. 7 Splendiferous Moon in just 7 days, she gets off the grass and takes a drop in class. 3-4-7

Key exacta box 4 with 3-7 and win on the 4

Race 4

No. 3 Funny Gal gets Bajarano and drops looking for the winners circle. No. 1 Sultry Season comes off a nice win here and No. 4 Sacred Delight will go good at this level. 1-3-4

Race 5

Down the hill we go. No. 2 Miss Becca will get a patient ride with Bejarano jumping aboard. No. 4 Distant Image exits our HTW list and is a must use with the big jockey change and the turn back in distance. No. 6 Blushing Martha also exits our HTW list first off the Jeff Mullins claim, she is live. 2-4-6

Exacta box 2-4-6

Race 6

Lets take a little shot in here with No. 3 Majestic Moment who only needs to get out of the gate to make an impact and his last two races will insure a good price. 3

Race 7

The last time No. 6 Tiz Argent won was when Gomez rode him and he is back on. No. 8 Slammer Time is closing in on the score and is a must use in the exotics. 6-8

Race 8

Maiden 3-year-old filies go 6½ furlongs on the dirt. No. 2 Girl On the Lam showed good early speed in her one and only. No. 4 Hidethegoodstuff will be sitting chilly at what will be a short price. 2-4

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

Only two of the horses in here have gone long. No. 1 Kirkoroth comes of a nice maiden win and he went long with much tougher back East. 1

Race 2

No. 4 Ryder in the Sky ships in from Santa Anita and finds a very soft group of 8k maiden claimers, after her the all stink! 4

Race 3

No. 1 Indycat ships in from Santa Anita and has some dangerous early speed. No. 2 Wild Bella will try and run her down. 1-2

Race 4

No. 1 Red Danger came off the long layoff and ran them off their legs winning by four lengths, he wins again if he doesn’t bounce. No. 2 Stone Hot is just another shipper who takes the big drop in class but lands in a top barn and gets a top jock. 1-2

Race 5

Morey stretches out No. 4 Havanna Jack and Baze gets on board. No. 5 Downtown C. T. is proven at this mile distance and will be right there. No. 7 One Lucky Guy will find a fast early pace and may surprise form out of the clouds. 4-5-7

Exacta box 4-5-7 and win and place 7

Race 6

No. 1 Glorious Choice ships in from Santa Anita and drops to this 8k maiden claimer, it is now or maybe never. 1

Race 7

Trainer Lloyd Mason will try jockey Dennis Carr on No. 1 Courtown Harbour, he needs a perfect trip and Carr could get it for him. No. 5 Cheezy Breezy has found his form at this level. 1-5

Race 8

No. 1 Mardi’s Tough Game is in top form and the one to beat. No. 7 Elaine’s Tenacity will sit back and make on run at the speed. 1-7
