SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Just another shot six horse field for the early low take out double and there is not much meat on the bones in this race. No. 2 Presenceofagenius gets Sevens for the stretchout in this his second start. No. 3 Incline Village exits the same race. No. 5 China Girl Lover gets a major ride upgrade and will love this mile turf distance, bet him to cash. 2-3-5**

Trifecta 5 with 2-3 with 1-2-3-4-6

Race 2

We only get a lackluster group of five in the second half of the early low take out double and we will side with the two that will be coming with late runs: No. 1 Candiz, who won at first asking, and No. 4 Horse Laugh, the price play. 1-4

Race 3

In this the third leg of the players pick five, No. 2 Hobbits Hero gets the resurgent Tyler Baze in the irons and is the lone speed in this 1-1/16 race, Tyler will try and take him wire-to-wire. 2

Race 4

In this sad 1-1/8 10k claimer we will side with Tyler Baze once again as a single. He gets on dropper No. 9 Go to the Pulpit who was exiting our HTW list last time out but finished a close fourth. At this level he can win. 9

Race 5

No. 2 Happybirthdaybaby gets her first start off the Hollendorfer Golden Gate claim and ships South with her. Hollendorfer is winning at a .40% rate and Bejarano gets the call. No. 3 Indygo F M A won going down the hill one race back. No. 6 Julio’s Gold gets her first start off the Cerin claime and may be the speed. 2-3-6

Race 6

Race 7

Down the hill they go in the feature. No. 1 Toowindytohaulrox has done little wrong in his two starts going down the hill with a second here back in November in the 100k Juvenile turf sprint and a win before that race. No. 2 Street Icon exits our HTW list off a good effort on the dirt in his last start. 1-2

Race 8

We will use four in the late low take out double starting with No. 1 Crystalline Indy who drops into a maiden claimer for the first time, No. 6 Hot Outta the Oven a live first time starter for Don Warren whose dam has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters, No. 10 Heavens Stairway the likely chalk who gets back to a maiden claimer and No. 11 Kid Rollins who also gets back to a maiden claimer and he ran behind Heaven’s Stairway one race back but gets ten pounds the best of it this time.  1-6-10-11
