SANTA ANITA

Race 1

This race is so bad it belongs at the Gate. Bejarano gets on No. 4 Gifted Prince who comes off a 2 year layoff, he was last seen making his one and only start against Coil. 4

Race 2

In this straight maiden race going 1 1/16 Bob Baffert sends out two. No. 1 Taran Taran off some real nice works and No. 2 Spirited Touch, of the two we prefer Taran off his works. Mike Mitchell sends out first time starter No. 3 Consurgo who also has been working with a purpose and he gets Leparoux. Trainer Steven Asmussen also sends out two, second time starter No. 5 Masaru who gets the stretch out and second time starter No. 6 Python, we like Masaru. 1-3-5

Race 3

No. 4 Ubelongtomemissy gets her second start for Sadler and she can only improve at this level. No. 3 Cavalletta will get a perfect sitting trip off the speed. 3-4

Double

2nd 1-3-5

3rd 3-4

Race 4

No. 3 Jeffrey’s Grove woke up big time on a dry track last time out and has had good work since. No. 7 Dance With Gable did not like the wet track and the 6½ furlong distance last time out and will go much better today on a dry track and this 5½ furlong distance. No. 9 Hidden Blessing is the speed and the one to beat with the drop back to this level. No. 10 Vaundell also has good early speed and looks to fit at this low level. 3-7-9-10

Race 5

In this mile turf race No. 1 Sarangani has a very interesting work pattern for this. No. 5 Keyboard Courage is in from Gulfstream Park off a nice win first out when made the 2/1 chalk, he lands in the Peter Miller barn so beware. 1-5

Double

4th 3-7-9-10

5th 1-5

Race 6

We go 7 furlongs. No. 4 Real Conundrum gets his second start off the layoff and is proven at this distance. No. 8 Island Sunset has a nice work for this. No. 10 He Be Fire N Ice comes off a long layoff for Sadler but those works say he is ready to fire big time. 4-8-10

Race 7

Sadler sends out just another comebacker in here with No. 6 Tigah off some outstanding works. No. 7 Causeithertz rarely runs a bad race. 6-7

Race 8

We finish this very tough card off with a 30k maiden claimer going 7 furlongs. No. 11 Primed and Ready looks just that with Bejarano sticking around for this. 11

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

Jerry H brings in the sharp No. 2 Going for a Spin and puts his old buddy Baze in the irons. No. 3 Koby Jo will be right there. 2-3

Race 2

No. 2 Royal Stormer looks odds on with these. 2

Race 3

It’s very interesting that trainer Miyadi ups No. 2 Unusual Mystery in class off a horrible race last time out, but the turn back could do the trick at a good price. Miyadi also sends out No. 7 D J Dave who looks spotted for action. 2-7

Race 4

No. 2 Andrell is the speed of the speed in here and will be playing catch me if you can unless No. 6 Simply Sharp goes with him and if that happens No. 7 Outdoorsman Gene will run them both down. 2-6-7

Pick four

1st 2-3

2nd 2

3rd 2-7

4th 2-6-7

Race 5

No. 6 Life Is a Rock gets his first start off the Morey claim and will get a good sitting trip behind the speed. 6

Race 6

No. 2 This One’s for Mat ran good last time out at this distance when Carr got on. No. 6 Hillcrest Avenue looks ready to go long. 2-6

Race 7

Only 7 races today. Baze and Hollendorfer hook up with dropper No. 1 Past Time Paradise who will be a big chalk. No. 4 After the Conflict also drops and gets back to a sprint. No. 2 Preacher’s Brat looks live at first asking for Martin. 1-2-4

Pick 3

5th 6

6th 2-6

7th 1-2-4
