SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Micks Miracle was bet like a good thing in his first start and destroyed his field by more than five lengths at this 6-1/2 furlong distance. His main danger today will come from No. 3 Stringent who also won for fun in his first start when storming home with a huge four wide move going 5-1/2 furlongs, he has a super work here on the 7th. 1-3

Race 2

We will use three fillies that are exiting the same race: No. 3 Cindys Secret the speed who finished a closer 4th, No. 6 Silver Mojave who finished 3rd by a neck and No. 7 Q’Viva who finished 2nd by a neck.

3-6-7

Double

1st 1-3

2nd 3-6-7

Race 3

If playing the pick five or the early pick four you really need to hit the all button in this 4-1/2 furlong sprint for 2yo $50k maiden fillies but taking a shot we will use No. 1 Acute Fever with Tyler getting the call and a nice 4 furlong work and No. 6 Rich Girl who gets a drop in class and a huge rider upgrade. 1-6 (all)

Race 4

In this one mile turf race No. 4 An Unusual Group gets Flavien Prat back in the irons, she will be making a late run. No. 5 Mango Reward just missed at this level last out. 4-5

Race 5

This is the same race as race three except we get the 2yo maiden colts running for a $50k price tag. No. 2 Justabitunderage has the Tommy Town/Miyadi connections that we love. No. 7 Frac Candy has the brother connections of Keith and Kent Desormeaux. No. 8 Schillairess is out of the barn of John Brocklebank who has been sending out nothing but live 2yo maidens at the meet and this colt is out of the dam Millionairess who has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters and his last work says he is on go.

2-7-8

Pick five

Win and place 1

Race 7

No. 4 Bipartisan gets a drop in class by the red hot Baltas and he puts his go to rider up. No. 5 Macho Sox also gets the big drop in class. No. 3 American Act will be on or near the early pace and is in top form.

3-4-5

Race 8

Maiden fillies and mares go a mile on the grass. No. 1 Princess Ashlyn is the speed on the rail and she gets Kent D who is very dangerous when he hangs around to ride the last race of the day. No. 2 Charming Starlet exits a productive race and Bejarano sticks. No. 4 It Girl will be the one rolling down the lane late.
