SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Big Wags likes this track and jockey Delgadillo knows this gelding well,. No. 3 Joe Carl is one popular item at the claim box, he gets off the grass and back to his best level. No. 6 Go to the Pulpit is proven on dirt and fits at this level. 1-3-6

Race 2

In this 40k maiden claimer for 2yo going a flat mile it really looks like no one can win but for our money we will take our shot with No. 5 Behind the Bossman who will try and stretch his speed out and hope no one runs with him on the front end, if so he will get very brave and take them wire-to-wire. 5

Race 3 

Trainer Bruce Headley has gone full tilt for the win in this straight maiden race as he puts Gary Stevens on first time starter No. 4 Synchrotron who has been working with a purpose here. Mike Smith gets on Headley’s other runner in here No. 8 Kill Shot who finished second in both of his starts at Hollywood, he has been in steady work’s here and will be tough to beat. 4-8

Exacta box 4-8

Race 4

No. 2 Ismene has been looking for a spot and has been working a hole in the wind. No. 9 Blues and Silvers has been routing on the grass, she has good early speed and did win two races in Florida going 7½ furlongs on the grass. 2-9

Race 5

In the last leg of the players pick five we get 20k maiden claimers going 5½ furlongs and to say this one is wide open is an understatement. No. 7 Gold Tie Please is a first time starter that has some long long shot appeal. No. 10 All That Rocks ran a nice even race at Fairplex and may like it here. 7-10

Race 6

No. 3 Democrat Duck ran his only two good races on this turf course, its wake up time, No. 5 Under Review drops into an action spot. No. 6 This One’s for Mel has been hanging down the lane but still has a shot with these to get a piece. 3-5-6

Race 7

No. 3 Appealing Resume gets a major rider upgrade and can handle the dirt. No. 5 With a Miracle likes this 7 furlong distance with a win and a second from two tries going this distance. No. 8 Addendum finally got the win when getting back on dirt and she could come right back at a price. 3-5-8

Race 8

No. 1 Level Headed is back from a short trip to Arlington Park and is back to a route with Gary Stevens getting the call. No. 7 Winning Rhythm will love this 1-1/8 turf distance. 1-7

Exacta box 1-7 and win and place 1

Race 9

No. 1 Rushomatic exits our HTW list off a nice even effort in her first start at Fairplex and the price will be ok with the low profile Ricardo Jaime in the irons. No. 2 Charlie Time also exits our HTW list off a good second when dropped to this level in his last start at Fairplex. No. 7 Browsing is the stablemate of Rushomatic and she looks very live first out of the box, Sadler wins at around .36% with his first time maiden claimers. 1-2-7

Exacta box 1-2-7

Pick four

6th 3-5-6

7th 3-5-8

8th 1-7

9th 1-2-7
