SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Bikini Bottom just missed at this level last time out and now goes 5½ furlongs off a bullet work. Trainer John Sadler sends out a live first time starter with No. 6 Proud Bok and Maldonado gets the call. 3-6

Race 2

No. 1 World Renowned has been running with winners and now is dropped back with maiden claimers where he could be dangerous. After that this race is just so bad we will sit it out. PASS

Race 3

No. 5 Samurai Jess has hit the board in all three of her starts and her speed will play well again today. No. 6 Peppy Bolly will sit off the hot pace and make one late run down the lane. 5-6

Race 4

Mike Mitchell got the big win on the stretch out with No. 2 Tebowing who fits with these on the move up in class. No. 5 Sweet Red Cat has won two straight turf and dirt and has a very nice last work. 2-5

Race 5

The question in this race is who will be the one to sit back and pounce on all the early speed? Talamo got to know No. 4 Magic Mama last time out when she closed going 7 furlongs, she will be flying with a big late run in this 5½ furlong sprint. No. 5 Courageousandbold is the one to beat from off the pace. No. 8 Arinyes Love will also be making a late run. 4-5**-8

Exacta box 4-5-8 and win and place 5

Race 6

4-year-old and up maidens go down the hill. No. 1 Broker Brett just missed in his one try going down the hill. No. 5 Lefty O’Doul gets back to a sprint and gets a major rider switch to Bejarano and he ran right behind Brett one race back. 1-5

Exacta box 1-5 and win and place 5

Race 7

No. 3 Call Me Kelly can handle the heat up front and will be out winging it. No. 4 Great Warrior drops into an action spot second off the layoff. No. 5 American Blend gets a mile and his last work says he is ready to fire a big shot. 3-4-5

Exacta box 3-4-5

Race 3
