SANTA ANITA

Race 1 

$25k fillies and mares go 5 ½ furlongs on the grass, speed speed and more speed line up in this sprint. We will look for a runner who can sit chilly off the hot pace and blast home late for the win. No. 5 DRIFT AWAY fits the bill. She comes off a nice win on the course last out for a $32k price tag and has won three of her six starts here on the grass. Flavien Prat fits this mare like a glove and she has won her last two starts on this 5 ½ furlong turf course. No. 4 Seaside Dancer has been routing on the grass and she can sit off the pace today, she looks the main danger. 5***-4

KEY PLAY

WIN AND PLACE 5 AND PLAY THE EXACTA BOX 5-4

Race 2

$50k maiden 3yo go 6 ½ furlongs. No. 2 Constitutionaffair just missed by a neck last out in his debut race finishing 3rd. The runner who was a neck in front of him came back to score next out, bet him to cash. 2**

RACE 3

Cal bred maidens travel a mile on the grass. No. 1 Watch the Dip could be the lone speed on the stretchout. No. 4 Big City Bane ran a solid second at this level and distance last out and has come back with a good work. No. 5 Sea of Liberty exits the same race as Big City and had a bad trip. 1-4-5

Race 4

$40k claimers travel 1 1/16 on the main. No. 4 Winning Element exits our HTW list off a solid try vs $50k runners last out on the grass. He gets back on the dirt and will be very tough to beat. No. 2 Accountability takes the blinker off and gets some class relief, we like Abel Cedillo up today. 4**-2

KEY PLAY

WIN AND PLACE 4 AND AN EXACTA BOX 4-2

Race 5

$40k optional fillies and mares travel a mile on the grass. No. 1 Arctic Roll move up a notch off the big win here last out at  this mile turf distance. Prat sticks and her last work was a doozy. No. 7 Kitty Boom Boom drops in class and is on a win every other race pattern and this is her win race and we like the move back to a flat mile. 1-7

Race 6

$50k starter allowance fillies and mares travel a flat mile. No. 5 Sybil’s Kitty is in good form and comes off a good second last out at this level sprinting, if she can clear she will be tough to catch. No. 2 Coldwater will be sitting well back and launch turning for home. 5-2

Race 7

THE $200K GREADE 2 SAN VICENTE AT 7 FURLONGS FOR 3YO

Bob Baffert sends out the $500k purchase No. 2 Ra’ad off a big win last out when bet down to .70 cents on the dollar. Hh also sends out No. 4 Nadal who cost $700k, he won first out of the box at 6/5 and is the one to beat. No. 5 Storm the Court won the BC Juvenile here at 45-1. 

4**-5-1

Race 8

Maiden 3yo fillies travel 1 1/8 on the grass and we get a full field of nine 3yo fillies before scratches. No. 2 Nu Pi Lambda has been sprinting on the grass and will be looking to take them wire-to-wire. We like the blinker off on No. 3 Undisturbed, she will fall into a good tracking spot. No. 7 Sweet Devil exits the same last race as Nu Pi Lambda, she gets Prat up today. 2-3-7

CHECK FOR LATE SCRATCHES
