SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Warren’s Wesley gets Bejarano back in the irons and his only win came with him riding. No. 5 Magna Warrior gets Kent D riding for his brother Keith who gives this 3yo gelding a major drop in class, the move back to dirt will help his chances. No. 7 Mahalo Arturo gets Elvis riding and that is a big rider upgrade as Dough O’Neill returns from his suspension. 3-5-7

Race 2

No. 1 She Got Away gets the up and coming bug boy Brandon Boulanger and a drop in class. No. 9 Ju Ju Bella is a first time starter out of the dam Naughty Princess who has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters, the price will be ju juicy. No. 11 Holy Ascension ran big here in her one try. 1-9-11

Race 3

No. 8 Longstocking exits our HTW list, she was well bet in her first start at Del Mar but could only split the field in a better than looked effort. She has been working with a purpose and looks ready to roll, we will bet her to win and single in the players pick five and also use her with No. 4 Ben’s Duchess who was well bet in her first start at Los Al but hopped at the start and was wide, she gets Van Dyke today. We will use No. 12 Dyna Star who looks the main danger. 8**-4-12

Key exacta box 8 with 4-12

Race 4

Race 5

THE $100K GRADE III MIDNIGHT LUTE

THE $75K EDDIE LOGAN

No. 3 Daddy D T gets some class relief after running in back to back Grade I races, the last being the BC Juvi Turf finishing a respectable 3rd. No. 6 Pioneerof the West comes off the good maiden breaker and he was right behind Daddy in the Oaktree Juvi Turf. No. 11 Bolo exits our HTW list and just maybe this good. No. 12 Broughton Kitten is in for Wesley Ward and looks very dangerous if able to get a trip from this outside post. 3-6-11-12

Key exacta box 4 with 3-5-6-10

Race 9

No. 3 Fame and Power exits our HTW list and is just sitting on the maiden breaker, that last work on the 22nd says he is on go. No. 5 Cyrus Alexander has been bet like a good thing in his two starts and looks the main danger. No. 9 Kantune also exits out HTW list and finished in front of Cyrus one race back but he seems to hang late. 3**-5-9

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 3 High Test looks much the best in here albeit at a short price. 3

Race 2

No. 5 Paszcatch comes off a long layoff but could be ready to fire at a price. No. 6 Italian Warrior is in from Emerald Downs and may like it here. 5-6

Race 3

Baze gets on No. 1 Grievous Angel for Miyadi off a big effort first out of the box and the horse that finished second in the race came back to win next out. No. 9 Dominant Danika also ran big first out of the box after breaking slow, she gets a big jock upgrade. 1-9

Race 4

No. 1 Arcturus gets his first start going long and first on the grass, he is bred to love the trip and the grass. No. 6 Silent Secret is the stablemate of Arcturus. 1-6

Double 

3rd 1-9

4th 1-6

Race 5

The give up sign is on No. 2 Tommy O who gets a big drop in class, he finds a very soft spot and should get the win at a short price. 2

Race 6

No. 5 Archie Graham ran a better than looked 4th in his first try going long on the grass and that race has him set. No. 10 Steel goes long and tries the grass both for the first time but his breeding says can do. 5-10

Race 7

No. 2 Two Pump is the filly to beat in here, she will get a sweet tip behind the speed and pounce turning for home. No. 3 Power of Ten can be depended on to get up late for a piece. No. 8 Happybirhtdaybaby is in top form and has won 7 of her 10 starts here with 2 seconds. 2-3-8

Double
