SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 The Mothership has been looking for a spot and has found a soft one in this 20k maiden claimer. No. 4 Corinthian Melody is the mare to beat with the move to this level. 3-4

Race 2

No. 5 Baranof went up to Turf Paradise and got the win first out of the box for Eoin Harty going 7½ furlongs on the grass, he was sent off as the 6-5 chalk and got up late after a slow break. He looks like he can repeat and the price will be a lot better. 5

Race 3

No. 2 Brilliant Jewel comes to town from Gulfstream Park via New York she has big early speed and Mike Smith will ride for his buddy John Shirreffs. No. 3 Thisonesforricky comes off a layoff but her works say yes! No. 5 Tiz Midnight has been working lights out for Baffert and now will go long in start number three. 2-3-5

Race 4

Since none of the ones that have run appeal to us we will side with a Jeff Bonde first time starter No. 8 Girly Ghost who is out of the dam Stephen’s Ghost who has dropped two winners from two starters and Maldo gets the call. 8

Race 5

Gary Stevens gives No. 3 Tommy O another shot, he will be making his usual late run. No. 5 Yankee Rebel gets his first start off the 40k Hollendorfer claim and Bejarano sticks. 3-5

Race 6

No. 4 Fast N Furius Cat will be the one to catch with the drop to this level and his last two wins have come when Tyler Baze was on him and he is on today. He will need to outbreak or sit right off the speedy No. 5 Peacenik who has been very popular at the claim box. No. 6 Traweek drops and gets back to his favorite track, all three of his wins have come here. 4-5-6

Exacta box 4-5-6

Race 7

No. 1 Joeandbetty’sbaby has won 3 of her 5 starts going down the hill including her last when making an eye popping run coming from last to first. No. 2 Kathleen Rose will fall into the perfect trip and she own in her only try going down the hill. No. 5 Mesana exits our HTW list off a very easy win first out of the box when going off at 5/2 she will handle the grass and looks solid in here. No. 9 Diaminda is the stranger danger in from over the pond for Paddy Gallagher, she won going 6 furlongs there on the grass. 

1-2-5-9

Race 8

Both No. 1 Among the Stars and No. 3 Ipolita drops in with maiden claimers for the first time and both must be used in the picks. 1-3

Race 2
