SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Saint Dermot ran ok when dropped in with $50k maiden claimers last out and now the drop down to $40k could get him home. No. 2 Larry Birdstone gets blinkers on and this trainer hits at .38% 1st time blinkers. No. 3 Bula Bula gets a major rider upgrade to Bejarano and a drop in with maiden claimers for the first time. 1-2-3

Exacta box 1-2-3

Race 2

No. 2 Pubic Policy ran a good second of the layoff last out. No. 5 Flat Gone ran right behind the Public Policy. No. 6 Celtic Moon gets a big drop in class by Miller, he will show all of his speed today at this level.

2-5-6

Double 

1st 2

2nd 2-5-6

Race 3

No. 1 Charming Starlet lost by a nostril at this mile trip on the grass here on Feb 15th. No. 5 Thermodynamics will try going long on the grass and Stevens sticks. 1-5

Race 4

Very wide open $20k maiden claimer. No. 2 Honey Fever has not seen the starter since 2013 at Hollywood Park, she ran a bang up second that day and could be live. No. 5 Preordained gets Maldo, look for him to be out winging it. No. 8 El Monterey gets Elvis, he will be sitting off the pace and making one late run. No. 11 Lute It Up will get a good outside trip and the price will be right. 2-5-8-11

Race 5

This is a very soft group of maiden fillies and mares going a mile on the grass. No. 1 Twentyfive to Life has been on a work pattern of every six days, Hollendorfer has her ready. No. 4 Cee’s Tizzy Belle has been on the grass several times but this may be her easiest task. 1-4

Race 6

No. 1 Run Like a Million had a horrible start last out in his first try on this circuit. No. 6 Grazen Sky has never run a bad race in his three starts with a win and two seconds, he gets Bejarano today who was on Run Like a Million last out. No. 8 Kluszewski gets a turn back in distance and some class relief. 1-6-8

Race 7

Down the hill they go in this wide open affair. No. 2 Grazenette won in her first try down the hill last out. No. 4 Heavens Stairway has won 4 of 6 down the hill. No. 6 Royal Temptress will be flying late with Stevens trying to get this filly home. No. 8 Black Bird Rock ran right behind Royal Temptress last out, she beds down in the hot Mark Casse barn. 2-4-6-8

Race 8

No. 3 Underhill Drive looks to have found a field she can beat with the slight drop in class. No. 4 Time for Angie looks the main danger as Bejarano gets back on and he won with her the only two times he was aboard. 3-4

Pick four

5th 1-4

6th 1-6-8

7th 2-4-6-8

8th 3-4

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 2 Stay Positive is doing just that as she will once again try and run down No. 5 Ninnavee who will be a very short price. 2-5

Race 2

No. 2 Blue Harriet is a first time starter who looks very live in here. No. 6 Mi Reinita comes off the layoff for the high percentage Andy Mathis. 2-6

Race 3

No. 1 Bar Doncella drops and gets Juan Hernandez as they go all out for the win. No. 2 Walloping Lula gets her first start off the Jerry Hollendorfer claim and he puts his man Baze in the irons. 1-2

Race 4

No. 2 Golden Guy comes off the layoff and looks very well meant. No. 4 Quetta’s Toy has had many chances but will once again be right there and is a must use. 2-4

Race 5

In the last leg of the pick five we will go there deep using No. 1 Fabulous Annie who is the speed on the rail. No. 4 How Now exits the same race and she beat Annie. No. 5 Star Image drops back to a level where she can win. 1-4-5

Exacta box 1-3
