SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Maidens go 7 furlongs and No. 2 Jean Edwards who has finished second in 6 of her 8 starts including a nose loss last time out just may find herself on the front end today. No. 3 Awesome Luck finished a nostril behind Jean Edwards in that race and now she gets the big jock switch to Bejarano. 2-3

Race 2

No. 1 Midnight Lady is in top form for this level and comes off a nice wire-to-wire win going this mile distance on the dirt. No. 2 Addendum finished just 3/4 of a length behind the Midnight Lady. No. 6 Marla Hooch has won 5 of her 8 starts here. 1-2-6

Race 3

This $20k maiden claimer is a real puzzler. No. 1 Secure Dividend exits a race in which the second place finisher came back to score here on Sunday. He gets back to a better level and the bug boy Brayan Pena has been on the improve, we will take our shot and single. 1

Race 4

No. 2 Commander King was right there last out at this mile turf distance and Kent D sticks for Sadler. No. 6 Mister Blue exits the same race and he gets his second start on this circuit for Casse. No. 7 It Is Living Water exits our HTW list and gets his second off the layoff. 2-6-7

Exacta box 2-6-7

Race 5

We will need to go four deep in the last leg of the players pick five as we have maiden 2yo going 5 furlongs. No. 3 Patron is out of the John Brocklebank stable and he has put four 2yo in the winners circle this meet. No. 5 Gunfire is out of the barn of Robertino Diodoro and he almost put one over last week. No. 7 Dalmore has the Desormeaux brother connections and No. 8 American League has the best last work. 3-5-7-8

Pick five

1st 2-3

2nd 1-2-6

3rd 1

4th 2-6-7

5th 3-5-7-8

Race 6

No. 2 Dress Code exits our HTW list, he did not like the wet track last out so look for the big rebound on a fast dry surface. No. 3 Persuasive Paul is always around at the end. No. 4 Ransom Canyon fits with this crew. 2-3-4

Race 7

No. 3 Gusto Dolce exits a key race and gets her second start in the states. No. 4 Sky Mega and No. 5 Honey Ride have been trading punches and either of the two can win this. 3-4-5

Exacta box 3-4-5

Race 8

They go 1-1/8 on the grass in the last race today. No. 4 Stole a Kiss won here at this distance one race back. No. 6 Tiz a Classy Lass never got untracked last out but will go better today. 4-6

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