SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Benba has gotten good and jockey Pereira fits like a glove, Kent D gets on No. 2 Deraptor and he exits the same race as Benba as does No. 6 Poshsky. 1-2-6

Race 2

Trainer Miyadi who is having a good meet here brings in No. 2 Pepper Sweet first off the Golden Gate claim, he has a good last work and gets a top jock, No. 6 Muchos Besos exits our HTW list off a head loss, he gets his first start off the claim. 2-6

Race 4

No. 2 Velvet Mesquite goes back down the hill where she has won three of her four starts, No. 5 Go West Marie is in from Belmont and just may like it here as Marie did go west! 2-5

Race 5

If possible this is a must watch the board as there are a lot of promising 2yo first-time starters in here, No. 2 Bad Read Sanchez has a sharp 4 furlong drill and really looks like a runner, No. 6 Social Request is by Lookin At Lucky and he has been doing ok with his first crop. 2-6

Race 6

No. 1 Stormberg may have been best in his last start but had a ton of trouble, he has hit the board in all five of his downhill turf starts and looks the one to beat, No. 3 Rangi is the speed and gets a new jock, if able to clear early with no pressure he could be gone. 1-3
