SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 Blue Anchor got a hard fought win breaking his maiden last out, he has worked well since and finds little to beat, No. 1 Kenjisstorm just missed at this level last out here on September 26th. 1-2

Race 2

THE 70K SPEAKEASY

No. 5 Toews On Ice exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, we will single in the pick five. 5

Race 3

No. 3 Broadway Nika drops back to a spot where his speed will play well, No. 6 Noble Kent gets Bejarano on in this his first off the Miyadi claim, he will be putting in a late run. 3-6

Race 4

We get a full field going down the hill, No. 3 Ferocious gets his second chance sprinting on the grass, he just missed going 5 furlongs on the Del Mar course last out, No. 7 Bluegrass Bronco ran to his name as he won down the hill last out. 3-7

Race 5

20k maidens go 5-1/2 furlongs, No. 5 Captain Carchy comes off the layoff but was competitive with 30k maidens, the drop could put him in the winners circle, in such a weak field we will also use the only first-time starter No. 9 Mr. Coconut who could light up the tote. No. 10 Lucky Logan gets back to a sprint and he ran good sprinting with 20k maiden company. 5-9-10

Exacta box 5-9-10

Race 6

Maiden 2yo fillies go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 1 She’s a Warrior is out of the dam Blabby B. who has dropped 4 winners from 4 starters, he is trained by Peter Eurton and that is good since we will see his daughter Brittany give us her take. No. 2 C.C. Zipp is the filly to beat and she will be a short price. No. 8 Sudden Fame just ran third in her first start when finishing behind Zipp, she will move forward. 1-2**-8

Key exacta box 2 with 1-8

Race 7

The last time No. 3 Silver Torch won was here going a mile on the grass with Kent D riding, he gets back on today, Bejarano who was on Silver Torch last time out gets on No. 10 Royal Banker. 3-10

Race 8

Lots of heat in this 5 furlong sprint and that will set up No. 3 Five Palms from off the pace, he has won 2 of his 3 starts here and can win off the layoff, No. 7 Bench Warrant has been facing better and he will also be flying late, that last work says he is on go. 3-7

Race 9

Maiden fillies and mares go a mile on the grass, No. 6 Margaret Reay ran some races last year as a 2yo at Belmont on the grass that would beat these, she gets the hustling James Graham riding for Tom Proctor, No. 7 Perdona gets her third try on the grass and she has good early speed, she will try and get the jump on them turning for home. No. 10 Rue de Cry ran good in her one turf try last year, she comes off the layoff for Carla Gaines who looks to have her ready to run. 6-7-10

Pick four

6th 1-2-8

7th 3-10

8th 3-7

9th 6-7-10
