SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Lust for Life just missed at this level in her last start. No. 4 Runningwiththelute off the grass and she is 2-for-2 at this distance. 3-4

Race 2

No. 2 L X Sunrise just does not want to win but is a great play to place as she has finished second in 8 of her 13 starts. No. 5 Prevaricator will appreciate the extra half a furlong today and the hustling Tyler Baze in the irons. 2-5**

Race 3

No. 3 Prohibition Repeal ran huge going this mile distance on the grass and will be able to get it done on the dirt. No. 4 Air Nashoba also just missed going a mile on the grass, he gets his first try on the dirt. No. 8 Book Thirty Four hopped in a slow start last out but still ran huge. 3-4-8

EXACTA BOX 3-4-8

Race 4

No. 3 Sizzlin’ Joe gets back to $25k the price of his nose loss one race back. No. 5 Tigah was claimed for $32k and now drops in with $25k claimers, not a good sign but he is a must use. No. 7 Jomelo gets back to a better distance. 3-5-7

Race 5

No. 6 Winninginfashion looks the speed of the speed. No. 7 Shopping Savannah drops off the claim and the win. No. 8 Articulate is on a win every other race pattern and this is her win race and Bejarano gets the call. 6-7-8

Pick five

1st 3-4

2nd 5

3rd 3-4-8

4th 3-5-7

5th 6-7-8

Race 6

Must go four deep in this 1-1/8 turf route using No. 1 Awesome Return who never runs a bad race. No. 5 Abbey Vale who comes back working like he is on go. No. 7 Lucky J Lane who has 2 wins and a second from his three turf starts here and No. 9 Opsec who is in top form. 1-5-7-9

Race 7

No. 4 Head South will sit chilly off the hot pace and try and catch No. 6 Off the Deep End at the end. 4-6

Race 8

$75k maiden claimers go down the hill. No. 1 Motorized Cat has the Tommy Town Steve Miyadi connections, this first time starter looks live for a barn that is having a great meet. No. 6 Currency Exchange gets his 3rd try down the hill and his first with claimers. No. 7 Stellar Act gets his first try on the grass and the connections say yes. 1-6-7

Double 

7th 4-6

8th 1-6-7

GOLDEN GATE

Race 1

No. 1 Don’t You Want Me will like getting back to a route. No. 2 Individual Design ships in and goes long, she was well bet in her one and only start at Santa Anita. No. 5 My Reinita just missed by a nose in her one start going long on the grass, she gets Baze riding for Mathis and that is a high percentage play.

1-2-5

Race 2

No. 5 Sold Short drops in this his 3rd off the layoff. No. 6 Relentless Warrior also drops and is the speed.

5-6

Race 3

We will use two that are exiting the same race: No. 4 There Goes Donnie who is the speed and finished second and No. 6 Sourdough Sam who finished 3rd and will try and run Donnie down. 4-6

Exacta box 4-6

Race 4

We will take our shot and single No. 1 Her Again in the pick five, she is in good form and the drop in class should get her home off the 2 month layoff. 1

Race 5

Must take our shot and single again as No. 1 Rio Hondo gets back to the level of his last win, he looks odds on. 1

Pick five

1st 1-2-5

2nd 5-6

3rd 4-6

4th 1

5th 1

Race 6

No. 7 Paseo Alegro could give Baze back-to-back winners, he gets back to a sprint and the synthetic surface and will be flying late. 7

Race 7

No. 4 Hot Surfing comes to town and starts his move back up the ladder off the huge maiden win at Los Al. No. 5 He’s On His Toes is the main danger. 4-5

CHECK FOR LATE SCRATCHES AND CHECK THAT THE SADDLE CLOTH NUMBERS MATCH OUR SELECTION NUMBERS.
