SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Artemisia ran a better than looked 3rd first out of the box for trainer Carla Gaines after being squeezed off at the start going 5½ furlongs, she is bred to go at least this mile distance being by Artie Schiller. No. 3 Appealing Lady has been 9/5 in both of her starts, she exits a productive heat when finished a closing second going 6 furlongs, this mile distance will be perfect for her and she is the one to beat at a short price. 1-3

Race 2

In this $40k maiden claimer for 2yo going a flat mile, we really need to watch the betting but we at this time cannot so we will opt to take a shot and single or just hit the all button, we will do both. In the pick five we will single No. 6 Jimbaran Bay a 3rd time starter who is in from Saratoga, he just may like it here.

2nd all

Race 3

No. 3 Barrel Knot is in from the North for trainer John Martin, he may be the speed of the speed in here. No. 6 Royal F J is the only one in here who has won going down the hill, he will be flying late. 3-6

Race 4

No. 4 Oeighter has been on the dirt one time and she was going a flat mile, she won like a good thing, she now gets back on the dirt and goes 7 furlongs a perfect distance for her. 4

Race 5

No. 1 Counting Days has a real nice work here on the 4th which says he is very live first off the Cerin claim and the hot riding Joe Talamo sticks. No. 6 Grand Humor will wake up with the move back to conventional dirt. 1-6

Pick five 

1st 1-3

2nd 6

3rd 3-6

4th 4

5th 1-6

Race 6

No. 6 Accelerant is out of the barn of Don Warren who has won with 2 of his 4 starters at the meet so far, his 7yo gelding will wake up with the move to dirt. No. 7 Dress Code is the speed and the one to beat. No. 9 Foolhardy exits the same race as Dress Code, he is the one to fear late at a price. 6-7-9

Exacta box 6-7-9

Race 7

No. 1 Fleet of Gold gets Alex Solis who has gone 0-20 so far at the meet, he won’t be shut out for long a and this filly could get him home on top as she ran good at Los Al on the dirt. No. 8 Colonel Joan gets some needed class relief. 1-8

Race 8

No. 3 Hijra got the cash last time out at 8-5 when sent long on the grass on this course. No. 5 Tiz the Key will get back on track today with the move out of the Graded Stakes and she also has won here on the grass. No. 6 Aguafria ran huge in her first in the country here back in May, the question is she ready off some lack luster works? No. 7 Winning Rhythm will be making a late run. 3-5-6-7

Race 9

In this $20k maiden claimer for fillies and mares No. 4 Rareness is a first time starter out of the dam Extra Rare who has dropped 5 winners from 5 starters, her last work says she is ready. No. 7 Theatrical Cast looks very sneaky in this spot for trainer Mullins. No. 10 Here’s Bella drops in with maiden claimers for the first time, she will improve. 4-7**-10

Double

8th 3-5-6-7

9th 7
