No. 1 Change of Plan won his last start at Santa Anita with Rosario in the irons and he is back aboard today. No. 5 Bob Consultation gets a little drop in class and that puts him right in the hunt. 1-5
Exacta box 1-5
Rosario will try to take down the early double as he gets on No. 3 Raven Wild off the little layoff for Sadler, she gets a drop in class and will be flying late. No. 4 Holiday N Newport gets back to a sprint.
This looks to be a cold two horse race between No. 9 Tenkiller Kid who gets his second start at this level running a solid second in his last start and the unlucky No. 11 Chocolatier the colt to beat. 9-11
Exacta box 9-11
We will use three horses that are exiting the same race: No. 1 Willyconker who likes this course, No. 3 Polytechnicien and No. 7 Hawk’s Eyes, all three drop into a much easier spot. 1-3-7
No. 1 Spirit of Ten gets the bug boy Drayden Vandyke who may be able to get this 2yo filly home carrying the light weight. No. 4 Pretty Storm is the speed with Rosario gunning from the bell. No. 12 Swissarella also has some speed but will need to get position right behind the Pretty Storm to have a shot. 1-4-12
No. 3 Swiss Heart can win this if able to clear early under Alberto Delgado. No. 5 Girl On the Lam lost as the 8/5 chalk in her last race but has a sparkling 6 furlong work on November 28th and looks the one to beat. 3-5
Exacta box 3-5 and win and place 5
No. 3 Rauschenberg gets back to his favorite track where all four of his wins have come. No. 5 Empty Headed is in tip top form with three wins and a second from his last four starts. No. 6 Dubai You X Y Z is one tough nut when running, he comes off the layoff and can fire fresh. 3-5-6
No. 6 Goodhumorgirl drops and gets a major rider upgrade. No. 9 Red Barris also drops and will show all of her speed at this level. 6-9
They pull all the stops looking for the win with No. 6 Ohia Woman who will be odds on. 6
No. 6 Harness Mentality drops into a spot where he should get the win. 6
This race is loaded with early speed and that will set things up for No. 1 Secret Cove with the hot riding Juan Hernandez getting the call. 1
Win and place 1
No. 5 Shesacurlinmytoes is in from Emerald Downs, drops into a maiden claimer and just may like it here. No. 6 Big Aly has been working out at Santa Anita since September and now ships in and gets the man.
No. 4 Captain Rodney ran a nice even race in his first start and can only move forward off of that race, he was well bet in that start getting bumped at the start. No. 9 Just Your Shadow is in from Santa Anita where he ran his one race down the hill, he gets a huge drop in class but if he has three legs he wins. No. 10 Single Mark will be the speed if Just Your Shadow is not right. 4-9-10
