Race 1

$25k claimers travel a mile on the grass. Trainer Richard Baltas always points his barn to the Santa Anita meets. He sends out No. 5 Point Guard who broke his maiden on this course one race back and he gets a major rider upgrade to Van Dyke. No. 6 Honeymoonz Over has good early speed and a nice work here on Sept. 21. No. 7 Ashley’s Big Guy also broke his maiden here one race back. No. 9 Original Intent is a deep closer with Prat getting the call for Hollendorfer. No. 10 Glorious Crown has been working great and gets his first start off the Morey claim. 5**-6-7-9-10

Race 2

$40k maidens go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 2 Molaf is a first timer for Baltas with the hard trying Agapito Delgadillo riding. No. 4 Getaloadofthis drops from a straight maiden race in which the winner came back to score again next out, Prat gets on today. No. 6 I Am the Danger just missed last out for a $32k price tag and now takes his first start off the O’Neill claim. 6-4-2

Race 3

$16k fillies and mares go six furlongs. No. 2 Bobbie Lincoln has run here two times with a win and a second. No. 5 Discatsonthesquare is sitting on a win and the drop will get her home today with Stevens sticking on her. 5**-2

Race 4

Optional $75k 3yo fillies go a mile on the grass. No. 11 Miraculously comes off a big 3rd at this level at Del Mar in her second start of the West Coast. No. 2 Sappho fits at this level and we like Franco back on today. No. 7 Nonna Gianna gets her 3rd start in the states and looks set for her best. 11-2-7

Race 5

$40k maiden 2yo go six furlongs to end a real tough pick five. No. 2 Mayan Warrior drops today looking for the win, we will take our shot here and single in the picks. 2***

Race 6


No. 3 Stormy Liberal is a seven time winner on this course and Van Dyke is a perfect 2 for 2 with her. No. 8 Conquest Tsunami is the stablemate of the Stormy Lib and will be the one to catch, he is a perfect 2 of 2 here going down the hill. 3-8

Race 7

2yo maidens travel a flat mile on the dirt. No. 2 Magnificent McCool has a big time last work and is the speed. No. 5 Dueling lost at odds on last out and now gets Mike Smith on the stretchout. 2-5

Race 8

$50k starter allowance runners go 6-1/2 furlongs on the dirt. No. 3 Captivate, No. 7 Blame Joe and No. 9 Kershaw all exit the same race in which they finished the trifecta. Look for one to come back and win today. 3-7-9

Race 9

$50k maiden fillies and mares go down the hill. No. 2 Sweet Congrats just missed on this course by a neck back in June. No. 5 Unusual Gold drops into a very live spot as does No. 7 Social Etiquette and No. 8 Token Vow. We love it when Gary Stevens sticks around to ride the last race and he is on No. 10 Untouched Elegance who will get a great trip from this post. 10**-2-5-7-8
