SANTA ANITA GETAWAY DAY ( note: any carryovers must be paid out today)

Race 1

No. 1 Muchos Besos likes these longer sprints, Kayla Stra gets on No. 4 Whipstock who won the only time he went this 7 furlong distance. Bill Spawr who had a good meet give No. 10 Big Wags a turn back in distance off a nice win going long. 1-4-10

Race 2

Love the last three works that trainer Avila has put into No. 1 Key Decision and this mile turf race will be perfect for him, No. 2 Danderek is in top form and the last two times Bejarano was on him he got the win. Rosario sticks around after the BC races and gets on No. 9 Zuboff for Peter Miller and the one time that Rosario rode this gelding he got the win. 1-2-9

Exacta box 1-2-9

Win and place 1

Race 3

No. 2 Anzeau has been facing much stronger and now gets the needed drop in class and the good thing is that Bejarano gets on, No. 6 Crusher comes off the layoff and exits a key race, he took some action in his only start at Hollywood and now drops in class. 2-6

Race 4

No. 2 Tale Be Told gets off the grass and will be making a big late run, Rosario jumps on the speedy No. 9 Change of Plan who drops trying to cash, he will be gunning from the bell. No. 11 Turn On the Brites will try and run them all down. 2-9-11

Race 5

Down the hill we go, No. 2 Kathleen Rose exits our HTW list off a big try going a mile on the grass, No. 4 Lil Swiss Echo has gone done the hill in all three of her starts with a close second last out and two thirds. No. 7 Tickle Again looks to be finally getting the just of things, she gets a good post and a top turf jock in Nakatani. 2-4-7

Race 6

First time starter No. 2 Robert E Lee has a big work for this and his dam Dancing Isle has dropped six winners from six starters, Rosario continues to get live mounts as he gets on No. 3 Snuggley Bear. There are several other first-time starters who look very live, No. 6 Bullwhip, No. 8 Rock Hard City and No. 9 Bayview Drive and No. 10 Beach Hut, we will be looking for the best value as any of the six can win. 

2-3-6-8-9-10

Race 7

Down the hill we go again, No. 2 Ambitious Brew has been right there in all three of his lifetime starts with two seconds and a win, we will take our shot and single. 2

Win and place 2

Race 8

No. 2 Blonde Fog will love this 7 furlong distance, we think he is the winner. 2

Race 9

THE GRADE II GOLDIKOVA

No. 2 Customer Base just did miss last time out and now looks set for the win, No. 5 Egg Drop had a huge last work for this. No. 7 Miss Pippa exits our HTW list when beating Customer Base last time out. 2-5-7

Race 10

No. 9 Educated Guess is my educated guess, he is a first time starter for Dave Hofmans who is very live in a very weak group of 20k maiden claimers. 9

Win and place 9 and single in the picks
