SANTA ANITA 

Race 1

There are two speed horses in this race and both could just circle the field together. No. 4 Sassy Suances and No. 6 Sugar Spice, both are dropping trying to win. 4-6

Race 2

If No. 3 Hair On Fire or No. 4 Tribal Dress can sit off the hot pace they can get the job done down the lane. 

3-4

Race 3

We get fillies and mares going a mile on the grass. The speed started to hold a little better on this turf course last week and No. 2 Life Is a Stone is all that, speed speed and more speed, she will be out winging it on the front end and could get real brace if they let her alone. No. 3 English Crossing is very consistent and she will be sitting ready to pounce. No. 5 Gulsary exits our HTW list and gets her second start in the states for the duo of Stevens and Proctor. 2-3-5**

Key exacta 5 with 2-3 and 2-3 with 5

Race 4

No. 5 Sheriff Hutton exits our HTW list off a huge effort when finishing second at almost 70-1, we look for another big effort. No. 6 Running Water exits the same race as the Sheriff finishing 3rd by a neck in his first try at this level. No. 7 Street Choir continues his drop in class for Sadler but the good news is that Bejarano sticks and he has a real nice last work here on the 13th. 5-6-7

Exacta box 5-6-7

Double

3rd 5

4th 5-6-7

Race 5

We get 2yo maiden fillies going a mile on the grass. No. 2 Elite Eight is out of the dam Four Plus Four who has dropped 3 turf winners, this filly will love going long on the green. No. 5 Elegant Trick will take to the grass being sired by English Channel. No. 6 Kitten de Pere is the stablemate of Elite Eight and she is a Kitten’s Joy filly who will like the grass. No. 7 Cause Im a Bigshot is a second time starter for Mike Mitchell who is bred for the trip and Leparoux will have her sitting chilly. 2-5-6-7 Note No. 11 Loufoque exits our HTW list but is sitting on the also list, if she draws in she will be our key horse with the other four. 

Exacta box 2-5-6-7

Race 6

Race 7

Down the hill we go in the feature. No. 7 There Is No Limit owns a win on this course with Krigger on, she will be the one who will be running down all the speed. 7

Race 8

No. 4 Midnight Casanova drops into a good spot. No. 6 Chocolatier is the one to beat and he gets the very capable new jock on the grounds Fernando Perez. 4-6

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

The gate is back in action and we start this seven race card with a 4k five furlong sprint. No. 3 Cherry On the Cake shipped here in September and got a quick win for Sherman at this 4k level, he rolls the dive with her. No. 4 Mistisized will be picking up the pieces late. 3-4

Race 2

Sherman sends out No. 4 Triple Feature, he was eased last time out and vanned off but has worked since so all must be ok and he won his only start here. No. 7 Gabbro Glitz will go much better today with the drop to this level and getting back on the synthetic surface. 4-7

No. 2 Silver Mojave has run two good races and has a nice 6 furlong last work. No. 1 Katavina looks live in this her first start and the hot riding Juan Hernandez gets the call. 1-2
