SANTA ANITA

Race 1

 

 

Distance is the key in this race, No. 5 Meave has never been 1 1/16 and No. 7 Lacey Leilah won the time she went this distance while the others have been this far but show no wins. 5-7


Race 2

 

 

No. 2 Hard Eight gets a major rider switch to Tyler Baze and he will gun this speedy mare from the bell, No. 6 Kahlua Mist will try and run down Hard Eight at the wire. 2-6

Race 3

 

 

No. 4 Madel gets a turn back in distance and gets back on the main, she will be flying late, No. 5 Wynning Ride was last seen running in the Grade 1 Alabama at Saratoga, she broke her maiden on this course and maybe she can remember what it was like to get a win.

4-5


Race 4

 

 

We will go three deep in the early pick four, No. 3 Connie The Queen exits our HTW list, this mare is two for two at this distance on this flat mile turf course, No. 4 Rollerskates just did fail to run down Connie last time out and she will try and turn the tables, No. 7 Operetta Italiano also exits our HTW list and she looks to be set for a big effort. 3-4-7

Race 8

 

 

There is a ton of early speed in here and two things can happen; one is that someone will get away early and go back-to-back and the other is that there will be a speed duel and someone will take back and pick up the tiring pieces. We will use three in the late pick four and hope we are half right somewhere along the line. 6-7-8
