SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 One World drops into a good spot and his only win came with Nakatani riding and he is back on, bet him to cash. 2

Race 2

No. 3 Mental Giant had some high hopes back in 2011 and now comes off that long layoff for Baffert as a gelding, he should like the dirt. Baffert also sends out first time starterNo. 8 Caveman Keno who gets a good post for this. No. 1 Wild Media will need to clear from the rail and that will not be easy. 1-3-8

Race 3

No. 2 Joelito has some big early speed and will get his first start going long on the grass but is bred for the trip and is bedded down in a top barn. No. 6 Say Ow has been working like he is ready to roll for the hot Julio Canani barn, he is sitting on go! 2-6

Exacta box 2-6 and win and place 6

Race 4

Maldonado jumps aboard the big dropper in here No. 6 Latin Lashes, if she has four legs she wins. No. 7 Memo to Kathy comes off a nice win here and also owns a win at this 7 furlong distance. 6-7

Race 5

Maiden fillies and mares go down the hill, on paper no one can win this race! We will take our shot with second time starter No. 2 Sidepocket Run who split her ten horse field last time out going down the hill, any improvement and she can win. 2

Race 6

In this straight maiden race for 3-year-old John Sadler brings back No. 8 Ethnic Dance who lost at 3/2 in his one and only start at Del Mar last year and it is interesting that Gomez gets the call. No. 9 Indian Classic ran good at Hollywood in his one start last June. 8-9

Exacta box 8-9 and win and place 8

After facing much tougher in his last two starts No. 4 Surfcup is back with his own kind and back on the grass, he looks the winner in here. 4
