SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Trainer Mike Puype’s 50k claim on No. 1 Limited Response has not panned out and now he drops him again to this 20k level looking to recoup some money back for the owners, No. 5 Kafister just lost by a nose in his last start for 25k and was claimed by Hollendorfer who now brings him back for 20k the price of his win one race back. 1-5

No. 3 Senza Fina will sit off the hot pace set by No. 4 South Sound and try and catch her down the lane. 3-4

Race 3

No. 2 She Digs Me won here for a price tag of 16k one race back and then was pushed up to run with 20k claimers with a bad result and now is dropped in with 10k claimers, No. 3 Carbonite gets off the grass and gets a big time drop in class by Sadler, if ok he is a main player. 2-3

Race 4

Now we get maiden 3yo going 1-1/8 on the grass, the question is who will like the grass and who will like 1-1/8? No. 4 Tommy’s Stylin gets his second start off a 1/2 loss going down the hill, Mike Smith sticks and that is a good sign, No. 6 Pantera Rojo will have no problem getting this distance. No. 7 Kozani exits the same race as Tommy and will be the speed. 4-6-7

No. 7 Tiz Vegas is in from Sunland Park for trainer Peter Miller who is deadly with these New Mexico shippers. 3-5-6-7

Race 6

We get 50k maiden claimers going a mile on the grass, No. 4 Rob’s Pal goes long on the grass once again and back in 2012 Tyler Baze was on this gelding and he was beat a nostril with straight maidens, he is back on today, No. 5 Street Maven gets the move up in this his first start off the O’Neill claim and Bejarano gets the call.

The closer in here looks to be No. 7 Clubhouse Ride who looks to be back in form off his last race, Tyler will be bringing him home strong. 2-4-5-7

Race 8

Maybe a flat mile will be the answer for No. 1 Monastic who has burned some cash in his last two going longer, No. 6 Power Ped is in top form and won in his only mile turf attempt. 1-6
