SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Strange Luck comes off a little layoff but has a nice last work and will get a solid pace upfront to make her late run. No. 6 Jesse’s Giacomo will also get the perfect setup. 1-6

Race 2

Gomez gets on the fast working first time starter No. 2 Caribe d’Oro who is very live. No. 3 Ondine will be short odds for the Baffert/Bejarano hook up, he has a big last work and has finished second in both of her starts, bet her to cash. No. 5 Tres Belle is the other Baffert in the race, a fast working first time starter. 2-3-5

Race 3

No. 3 Viva Carina has a very interesting work pattern since that last race here when she wired them. No. 6 Esentepe exits our HTW list off a solid first try in the states. 3-6

Race 4

No. 1 Penny Maker continues his drop seeking his level, this may be it. No. 5 Chico Suerte is a $$$$$ play off our HTW list. He had a very good race when stretched out last time at this level, a race in which he had trouble, now Gomez gets the leg up. 1-5

Exacta box 1-5 and win and place 5

Race 5

No. 3 Pure Smiles gets back on the grass and gets the drop in class, she could be tough in this spot. No. 7 Corinthian Melody also drops and goes routing. 3-7

Race 6

No. 4 Laugh At Life looks to be the speed of the speed in here. No. 7 Prime Issue just missed in his one try going 7 furlongs and he gets a big break in the weights with the bug boy jumping on. 4-7

Race 7

Trainer Adam Kitchingman who has won with six of his nine starters at the meet sends out No. 2 Miceli in the 75k Pasadena, he is looking for his 4th straight win. No. 7 Procurement will like this mile turf distance. No. 11 Dr. Spin got the win in his first start after being gelded and is the play if he draws in. 2-7-11

Win and place 11

Race 8

No. 2 Bonita Star looks set for a big run second off the layoff and the slight drop in class, she will get a fast pace to make her late run and the price will be right. No. 3 Grand Corredora will also be making a late run at them as will No. 7 Flashy Delight. 2-3-7

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

Like the jock switch on No. 1 Kelly’s Golden Won. No. 5 Easy Six comes off the layoff for the hot Martin barn and gets the man riding. 1-5

Race 2

No. 2 Ramble on Rose got the nice win here last time out and is the one to beat in here. 2

Race 3

No. 5 Pocosin Game Girl looks to have found her stride and will get her diploma today. 5

Win and place 5

Race 4

No. 5 Stone Hot gets the move up off the going away win, he looks to have found a home here at the gate. No. 7 Six Votes comes off a long layoff but had big early speed back when he was racing and if he still has that speed he looks to have a say for a long time with these. 5-7

Race 5

No. 3 Salsa Cat ran good last time out when dropped to this level. No. 6 Sweet and Sleek ran her best race last time out when she went long for the first time as did No. 7 Super Sonic Soul. 3-6-7

Race 6

No. 3 Decoy looks all the winner in here with the turn back to a sprint but will need to run her best in order to run down No. 6 Capital E. 3-6

Exacta box 3-6

Race 7

No. 4 Seattle Ruler drops trying to cash, he looks like a solid single in the late pick four. 4

Race 8

No. 3 Ya Wanna Hug has run back-to-back good races since coming here. Her stablemate No. 1 Lite N Lily may be the danger along with closer No. 2 Left Bay. 1-2-3

Pick four

5th 5-7

6th 3-6

7th 4

8th 1-2-3
