SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Hot Market gets his second try going down the hill, he was a solid second last out despite trouble. No. 6 Gangnam Guy has hit the board in all four of his starts down the hill and he exits the same race as Hot Market. No. 10 Bobby Z Man gets his second off the layoff and he is a two-time winner down the hill. 1-6-10

Race 2

No. 3 Warren’s Casper looks to have found a good spot to notch his second career win as he will find a fast early pace to make his last run and the price will be juicy. No. 6 Sum Midnight Star has a shot if able to sit off the pace and make one run turning for home. 3-6

Race 3

Lots of early zip in this mile turf race, No. 2 Frandontjudge will sit back and make one run down the lane, she can get up. No. 4 Toppers Sunshine comes off the layoff but loves this mile turf distance. 2-4

Race 4

No. 1 Medicine Butte has finished second in both of her starts, she will be right there again, No. 4 Sadie Clare is a live first-time starter for D’Amato, she looks ready to run. No. 10 Codacious finished right behind Medicine Butte in her first try. 1-4-10

Race 5

No. 1 Whiskey Wild gets his first start off the maiden breaker and first off the Hess Claim, No. 4 Mr. Jay D finds his way here from Tampa Bay, he lands in the barn of Jerry Hollendorfer and gets Bejarano up. 1-4

Race 6

No. 4 Nothing to Hide will sit chilly off the hot pace and make one run, we will take our shot and say she gets home on top. 4

Race 7

Maiden 3yo fillies go 1 mile on the grass, No. 5 Frosty Friday is in from Churchill Downs for trainer Mark Casse, she was well bet in her one and only start, a solid third and she will like the longer distance and the grass, if No. 6 Danette doesn’t go on Saturday she will be the main filly with these. No. 9 Housemaker is in from over the pond for O’Neill where she was second in both of her turf starts, she lands Bejarano. 5-6-9

Exacta box 5-6-9

Race 8

No. 3 Head South comes off a nice win and fits with these, No. 5 Frensham was up against it in his last race, he gets back to reality. No. 6 Memphis gets back to a sprint and will be right there. 3-5-6

Race 9

30k maiden 3yo go 6-1/2 on the dirt, No. 3 Gnarly Harly gets a drop in class in his first start off the Wesley Ward claim and the interesting thing is that Mike Smith sticks around for the ride, No. 7 Sky Heart just missed by a neck in his last race and now gets his first start off the Hess claim. No. 8 Desert Gem was a fast closing fourth behind Sky Heart in that race. 3-7-8

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 1 Peppery takes a big drop in class off good races, not a good thing to see and will be a short price. No. 3 Kuuipo is the speed. 1-3

Race 2

No. 3 Star Via Strada comes off a good third in the Cal Oaks and is the filly to beat. No. 6 Star’s Woman also exits the race. 3-6

Race 3

Race 6

Race 7

No. 1 Danz With K J is rounding back into form and will be the price play in here. No. 2 Justa Splash is on a win every other race pattern and this is his win race. 1-2
