SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 1 Cougar Country gets off the grass and drops to a better level. No. 3 Sir Macho also gets off the grass and he finished second here on the dirt back in January. No. 4 Top Drawer gets the stretchout first off the Ron Ellis claim. 1-3-4

Race 2

No. 4 Matriculate exits our HTW list off a huge win first out of the box and No. 6 London Legacy who finished some six lengths behind him came back to score by more than eight lengths next out and now the two meet each other again. 4-6

Race 3

2yo maiden going a mile on the grass. No. 4 Mr. Game Seven took some action first out of the box but never got into the race, we look for much better today. No. 7 Hot Ore finished second last out when exiting out HTW list, he is bred for the grass. No. 8 Frac Candy has the Kent D and his brother Keith connections. 4-7-8

Exacta box 4-7-8

Race 4

We will take our shot and single No. 3 Lil Cheyenne in the pick five, she exits a key race and gets a huge rider upgrade and a double drop in class as they go all out for the win. 3

Double

3rd 4-7-8

4th 3

Race 5

No. 1 Homer Matt comes off the layoff for Peter Miller and this 3yo colt met some good ones last year as a 2yo. No. 3 Alamo is sitting on the maiden breaker and with the right pace up front today could be the day. No. 8 Perfectly Majestic just missed going down the hill one race back. 1-3-8

Pick five

1st 1-3-4

2nd 4-6

3rd 4-7-8

5th 1-3-8

Race 6

Maiden 2yo sprint 5 furlongs. No. 3 Scatastic is out of the barn of John Brocklebank and he has been sending out nothing but live 2yo at the meet. This one will be hard to beat off his good second first out of the box. No. 7 Look Me in the Eye is a first time starter who draws Mike Smith, he is out of the dam Just Lookn who has dropped 7 winners from 7 starters. No. 10 True Brilliance exits our HTWv list off a big try first out of the box. 3-7-10

Race 7

Tons for early speed in this 6-1/2 furlong turf downhill sprint so we will look for a few that can get a trip from off the hot pace. No. 4 Diamond Majesty just missed in the Desert Code on the course one race back, he has a bullet last work. No. 8 Jazzy Josh gets his first start off the Peter Miller claim and will fall into a good stalking position. No. 10 Henry’s Holiday gets his first try on the grass, he will be flying late. 

4-8-10

Race 8

$20k maiden fillies going 1-1/16. No. 1 West Coast Storm has early speed and the rail. No. 2 Valentine’s Reward drops back to a better level and she will go much better today. No. 7 Classy Chick gets stretched out for the first time and could wake up. 1-2-7

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