SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Send Me a Sign has a hard time getting out of the gate. She is sent a mile today after a good late finish in her second start when she took plenty of action. No. 4 Lookinforadanger has been turfing, she has good early speed and could be dangerous on the front end if able to handle the dirt. 3-4

Race 2

Maiden fillies and mares go down the hill, No. 9 Our First Girl is a first time starter by War Front who should love the grass. No. 10 Illuminant is the filly to beat off her two turf races. 9-10

Race 3

$20k maidens travel a 1-1/16 on the dirt, No. 2 Pipedreams ran good in his first try going long and has a good work since, the drop in class will help the chances of No. 6 Financial. 2-6

Race 4

No. 2 Pleasant as Pie smoked them at 33/1 first out of the box and she could be this good. No. 7 Daddy’s Duo gets off the grass and back to sprinting on the dirt and she is on a win every other race pattern and this is her win race. 2-7

Race 5

THE $100K ZUMA BEACH GOING A MILE ON THE GRASS

The question here is what does Baffert know? He sends out two maidens in this race: No. 1 Coach Q and No. 6 Mighty Moses a Candy Ride colt who was bet like a good thing first out of the box and ran second. 

1-6

Race 6

No. 3 Courageous Dave exits our HTW list off a nice win first out, he finds a field loaded with early speed and will sit right off the hot pace and mow them down late. 3

Win and place 3

Race 7

THE $100K SURFER GIRL GOING A MILE ON THE GRASS

No. 3 Mirage is off the boat where she won first out going six furlongs, that last work here on the 3rd says she is on go. No. 5 Jakaby Jade looked good winning the Juvenile filly turf at Del Mar on Septmeber 7th, she will be tough right back. No. 10 One Last Shot ran right behind Jakaby in that race finishing second. No. 11 Optimism And Hope has the look of a filly who could come flying late at the right price. 3-5-10-11

Race 8

We get maiden 2yo sprinting six furlongs, No. 6 Dr. Dorr is a first time starter for Bob Baffert and this colt is owned by his wife Natalie and he puts his go to rider up, those two five furlong works say go!!! Mr. B also sends our first time starter No. 4 Let’s Meet in Rio and this colt is a Juddmonte owned colt and we take notice that Kent D gets a rare ride for Baffert, he has been working lights out also. No. 11 Miner’s Light exits our HTW list off a big try first out when losing by a nostril to Exaggerator who then went to Saratoga and won a stakes race. 4-6-11

Exacta box 4-6-11

Race 9

If No. 10 Avanti Bello can clear from this outside post he could take them wire-to-wire but that’s a big if. His stablemate No. 1 Storm Comin Thru will be just that, he exits the same race and gets the cozy rail and Bejarano in his 1-1/16 route. 1-10

Race 10

$32k claimers go down the hill in the last leg of the pick four. No. 10 Turnover will get the best trip here, he drops looking for the win and we think he gets it today. We will single in the late pick four. 10

Pick four

7th 3-5-10-11

8th 4-6-11

9th 1-10

10th 10
