LOS ALAMITOS TB
No. 3 Judge Randi is a first time starter for trainer Scott Hansen who does well with his first out maidens and the hustling Iggy Puglisi gets the call, She is also out of the dam Tina’s Love who has dropped two winners from two starters. No. 5 Hold Me Fast is a first time starter out of the barn of Dough O’Neill and this filly has been working very good here. No. 6 Native City gets her second start, she took some action in her first start but lost all shot at the start, when steadied and squeezed off. No. 8 Stunning Taste exits the same race as Native City and she gets the bug boy Brayan Pena today. 3-5-6-8
2yo maiden fillies go 5 furlongs, No. 3 Swiss Rosalee ran a good second in her one and only start at Santa Anita at this same distance. No. 4 Tumbleweedprincess will go better today on a dry fast track. No. 6 Some Caan Job was scratched on Sunday for this spot, she just missed last time out by a neck after leading all the way. Martin Garcia gets on the Hollendorfer first time starter No. 8 Malibu Rum Run. 3-4-6-8
No. 4 Jetbird won in his only start here. No. 5 Travel Free is perfectly spotted off the maiden breaker last out. 4-5
Not crazy about the inside in these 5-1/2 furlong sprints here but No. 1 Elegant Margaret is a must use as she is out of the dam Favorite Gift who has dropped 7 winners from 7 starters. No. 2 Lady Caprina just missed last time out at Santa Anita at this distance. No. 9 Let the Girl Go is a very live first time starter with a nice post for this, she is out of the dam Allforyou who has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters and her sire Rocky Bar hits at .20% with his first out starters, she also has some nice works. 1-3-9
Exacta box 1-2-9 and win and place 9
No. 3 Heavenly Haze the one to beat here off her one race at Santa Anita when she showed big early speed. Bob Baffert and Martin Garcia hook up with first time starter No. 6 Peacock Strut. No. 8 Real Big Deal has some good early foot and will show it all today with the move back to dirt. 3-6-8
No. 6 Aaron Again will be out winging it on the front end in this mile race. No. 8 Passinaflash will try and do that as he moves to the dirt and gets a big drop in class. 6-8
Lots of early speed in this 5-1/2 furlong sprint and that will set things up for No. 6 Autumn Twilight and No. 8 Tatum’s Gold her stablemate who comes off the layoff. No. 7 Desert Thief also will be putting in a late run. 6-7-8
Starter allowance runners go a flat mile on the dirt. No. 6 Perfect Set is the perfect fit for this race and he gets his second start off the Hollendorfer claim and he hits at .31% second off the claim. No. 9 Shame On Alex just missed last out at Santa Anita going 7 furlongs, he is in good form and may like it here. 6-9
