SANTA ANITA 

Race 1

No. 1 Chilada almost got there from the number 7 post last time out going this mile turf distance here and now gets the rail and Talamo back on and he won with this filly the one time he was on her. No. 3 Krazypapaya gets Tyler Baze and she will be making a late run at the speed. No. 5 Mangita has been right there in all five of her starts just missing by a nostril last time out and now gets a huge rider switch to Mike Smith. No. 6 Tanquerray drops back to a better level and gets Nakatani back. 1-3-5**-6

Race 2

Jockey Bejarano gets on No. 2 Clearly Confused first off the Hollendorfer claim. They will need to bet her to cash. 2

Double 

1st 1-3-5-6

2nd 2

Race 3

Maiden fillies and mares go down the hill. No. 2 Oughttobenaughty ran a better than looked race when sent a mile on the grass in her first start last year at Del Mar and then she just missed when sent against the boys. She took time off since and now comes back looking ready to run. No. 4 Provenance ran ok in her try going down the hill and could be the lone speed today. 2-4

Race 4

No. 2 E Equalsmcsquared may have bounced last time out form her big effort off the layoff the race before, she finds a field loaded with early speed and should get the win today. No. 5 Among the Stars won last time when exiting our HTW list and she looks like she can handle the move up and gets the hustling Kayla Stra in the irons for John Sadler. 2-5

Exacta box 2-5 and win and place 2

Race 5

No. 1 Jet Warrior has two wins and a second from his three starts and one of those wins came on this downhill turf course. No. 3 Betty’s Bambino won like something good in her first start and now will go down the hill, he is bred to love it. 1-3

Double 

4th 2-5

5th 1-3

Race 6

This is one tough race to get a handle on. No. 1 Xuang Feng gets the huge drop second off the layoff but Bejarano sticks. No. 2 Private Bounty has run two stinkers in a row since being claimed but his late run could get him a piece today. No. 4 Truelee Scrappin did not like the wet track last time out and will rebound today on a fast track and the move back to 5½ furlongs. 1-2-4

Race 7

1¼ on the grass. No. 1 Lime Rickey has been working up to this race with some long stamina building works. No. 2 Boyett is the lone speed and he could get very brave if able to set some slow fractions. No. 7 Mambo Man exits our HTW list, he can get the distance but needs to get out of the gate. 1-2-7

Exacta box 1-2-7

Race 8

No. 1 Charbroiled exits our HTW list off a solid second when tried at this level last time out. No. 2 Ice Cream Truck has had his chances but has been right there in his last four starts and will be part of the exotics underneath. No. 8 Slight Edge exits the same race as Charbroiled and is a must use. 1-2-8

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 2 Princess Suances will be playing catch me if you can. No. 5 Snackable gets a little drop in class and she will try and run the Princess down. 2-5

Race 2

No. 1 Call It Luke drops, gets blinkers on and was well bet in his one race. No. 4 Dayjur Hooq has run his best two races at this level. No. 5 Geno’s Bambino drops to this level for the first time. 1-4-5

Double 

1st 2-5

2nd 1-4-5
