SANTA ANITA

Race 1

We start just an eight race card with no grass racing due to the rain at the once great race place. We start the day with $20k fillies and mares going seven furlongs. No. 1 Time for Suzzie won a $32k claimer here last year and the drop to this level could wake her up. No. 8 Tiz a Master comes off the layoff and finds a very soft group, we like Abel Cedillo up for Richard Baltas. 1-8

Race 2

Calif. bred $20k optional claimers go 6-1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Foster Boi gets a turn back to a sprint and off the grass, look for a big run today off a big last work. No. 4 Quick Finish gets blinkers on the a hot jockey and the turf to dirt angle. 1-4

Race 3

Calif. bred maiden fillies and mares travel six furlongs, this is a race we really need to hit the all button but we will opt for No. 1 Big Sweep. He’s a first time starter by the sire Mr. Big who is hitting at 38% with his first timers. No. 2 Approved for Flyby a first time starter with the hot jockey Umberto Rispoli up for Eddie Truman. 1-2

Race 4

$40k optional 3yo going a mile. No. 2 Itsthattime just missed at this level and distance last out. No. 4 Leatherneck is the stablemate of Itsthattime and goes long today. No. 6 Big Hoof Dynamite exits the same race as Itsthattime and has hit the board in all three of his starts here. 2-4-6

KEY PLAY

EXACTA BOX 2-4-6

Race 5

Calif. bred $20k optional fillies and mares go 6-1/2 furlongs. No. 2 Li’l Grazen will get a fast pace to make her late run as will No. 10 Win Often who is on a win every other race pattern and this is her win race. She is also a perfect 2 for 2 here at the once great race place. 2-10

Race 6

$80k optional 3yo travel a mile. No. 2 Great Power won at first asking when sent off at .90 cents on the dollar, he has come back with a big work. No. 6 Charlatan won like a champ first out and looks the one to beat. 2-6

Race 7

THE $400K GRADE 1 BEHOLDER MILE FOR FILLIES AND MARES

No. 1 Hard Not to Love has won five of her six starts, all here at Santa Anita, including her last three with Mike Smith riding, he is on board again today. No. 5 Mother Mother ran second behind Hard Not to Love last out and now gets Drayden Van Dyke up for Bob Baffert. No. 6 Ollie’s Candy is the mare who just could upset to top two, she can sit off the hot pace and run them down late with Flavien Prat up today for John Sadler, she will be our key horse at the right price. 6**-1-5

KEY PLAY

WIN AND PLACE 6 AND A KEY EXACTA BOX 6 WITH 1-5

Race 8

Calif. bred $50k maiden fillies and mares go six furlongs. No. 3 Durga gets back in with maiden claimers, she ran her best race at this level three races back, we love the jockey change and blinkers on. No. 6 Our Romance also drops in from straight maiden races and she also gets a big jockey switch to Abel Cedillo and goes from the grass to the dirt. No. 7 Galwalksintoabar is a first time starter out of the dam Slash who has dropped 5 winners from her five starters, she is live with Van Dyke up. No. 9 On the Verge just missed by a neck first out when well bet, she is a must use. 3-6-7-9
