SANTA ANITA

Race 1

We will make a one way call in the start off the players pick five and go with second time starter No. 9 Bernier who was well bet in her first start here on the 3rd. She made a big eye catching rally down the lane just missing by a dwindling 3/4 of a length. 9

Race 2

Maiden 3yo fillies go 1-1/16 on the dirt. No. 2 Roadbug was bet like a good thing in her first start going off at even money, she never got into the race going 6 furlongs at Los AL, Baffert sends her long today. No. 4 Caradini is a first time starter who has been working like a runner and she gets Bejarano. No. 6 Conquest Superstep ran second here going this distance back in October, she is the filly to beat. 2-4-6

Race 3

No. 1 Ernest Shackleton is a maiden who tried some tough colts in the Eddie Logan, he stays with winners once again. No. 5 Willing to Travel was also in the Eddie Logan, he just missed on the turf course back in October. 1-5

Race 4

No. 6 She’s Flush could find the right pace up front to make her late run, she is a solid fit here at this $20k price tag. Trainer Eddie Truman has won with 3 of his 5 starters and he sends out No. 2 Grammy Times six off the layoff and Kent D gets the call. 2-6

Race 5

Down the hill they go, jockey Gary Stevens got on No. 1 Hugh Knew last out for Truman going down the hill and she got the win which was his second going down the hill. No. 2 Grandiose Tactics finds her way here from Churchill Downs and lands in the barn of Ron Ellis, she may like it here. Ellis also sends out the speedy No. 5 Lotta Attitude who could get brace if able to secure an easy lead. 1-2-5

Race 6

No. 1 Borealis Breeze, drops back in with maiden claimers, gets off the grass and exits a key race, we look for improvement. No. 4 He’s Dreamy just hated the wet track in his first start, he is sent long and the price will be very juicy. No. 8 Chester B drops in this his second start off the Sadler claim, the looks to be a big threat in a very wide open race. No. 6 Guyfromtheskyfive has burned some serious cash in his last three starts losing at 3/1, .80 cents on the dollar and 9/5, Kent D sticks as they try sending him long. No. 5 Gnarly Harly exits our HTW list, he gets a slight drop in class and will be our play in this race.

Key exacta box 5 with 1-4-6-8

Race 7

Brandon Boulanger has been popping with some nice prices here at the meet and he gets on No. 1 Kukaluka for Peter Miller, she will get a nice rail trip. No. 2 Lamazone went up to the Gate looking for a race on the grass but it was taken off, he comes back to town and looks to have found a good spot. 1-2

Race 8

The one time No. 6 Push Girl ran here she won by 8-1/2 lengths. The hard trying Kayla Stra gets a shot on No. 7 Mia Luccia who owns a win at this -1/2 furlong distance and ran a nice third here at the distance with straight maidens. 6-7

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 1 Mickey Ball just missed by a nostril last out, he is the one to beat. No. 4 Rush In gets the bug boy Sullivan and he will be the main danger. 1-4

Race 2

No. 1 Illumination Road is the speed on the rail. No. 6 Significat will try and run him down. 1-6

Race 3

No. 2 It’s a Blue Moon will like this 5 furlong distance. No. 3 Nancypeggy gets the break in the weights with Carson getting the leg up. No. 6 Milady Maid gets Catalino Martinez back in the irons, he won with this mare one race back. 2-3-6
