SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 She’s a Go Girl drops again. She has speed and gets a rider change from Orozco to Espinoza, but the rail with Espinoza is not good.

No. 9 Rob’s Pal is another who gets the big drop and this is his first in a maiden claimer after making his first nine starts with straight maidens most on the grass. When all is said and done we will opt with No. 8 the Citron Kid and No. 9 Robs Pal. 8-9
