Race 1

Another lack luster card today at Los Al but Santa Anita opens on December 26th. In this $20k maiden claimer going a mile No. 2 Warrens Goldnugget attracts the services of Bejarano and that is enough to make us single her in the players pick five. 2

Race 2

No. 1 Hotaling Heart makes her start for a barn that has won with 4 of its 10 starters at the meet. No. 2 Salsita drops off the win but this trainer hits with this move. No. 5 Sweet Pizazz is the stablemate of Hotaling. 1-2-5

Race 3

We get a real soft group of $30k maiden 2yo going a flat mile. No. 2 Reservoir Point is a first time starter with little to beat if he can run at all. No. 4 Empire Cat has an ok race over the surface at this distance on December 6th and Bejarano sticks. We will give No. 6 Sooner Than Later another shot as he may like the dirt and has the right connections to pull one off. 2-4-6

Race 4

No. 1 Thermodynamics is a first time starter that draws the services of Gary Stevens who has gone 0-5 so far at the meet. This filly is out of the dam Thermal Ablasion who has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters and she has been working with a purpose. No. 3 Won’t Be Shaken is a very live first time starter for the Tommy Town/Miyadi connections. 1-3

Race 5

Trainer Philp D’Amato has been sending out nothing but live runners at the meet and he has two entered in here with No. 5 High Profit and No.  6 Watdifrencedzitmake, we will use both in the pick five.



1st 2

2nd 1-2-5

3rd 2-4-6

4th 1-3

5th 5-6 ( if the two loses the first race play the pick four from the second to the fifth.)

Race 6

No. 5 She Got Away did not get away in her first start as she was steadied and wide in the stretch, she will go better today. No. 6 Maid Easy has been looking for a race and these connections of Owens and Stra pulled one off on the first day of the meet. No. 7 Sheer Pleasure is a first time starter for D’Amato, she is out of the dam Kathryans Birthday who has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters. 5-6-7

Exacta box 5-6-7

Race 7

No. 2 Macho Sox won in his only start here and his only try on the dirt. No. 3 Roundupthelute will go better at this mile distance. No. 5 Luckbox Sam is the speed and just may not stop today. 2-3-5

Race 8

No. 5 Shared Image comes off a good win here last out. No. 6 Slewbie Doo drops and gets Van Dyke and the move back to dirt will move her up. No. 7 Bird In Love exits the same race as Shared Image. 5-6-7

Exacta box 5-6-7
