We will start the day trying to get a single home in the pick five using No. 6 Vibe with the brother’s Desormeaux connections on the big drop down and very good last work. The last time Kent rode this colt for his brother he got the win and it came here at Santa Anita, look for him to sit off the hot pace and pounce turning for home. 6
Let’s see if we can really get going and get home another single using No. 5 Latina Mo who gets her second start at this level, she missed by a dwindling 1/2 a length in his last here at this $20k maiden level and the hot riding Pedroza sticks. 5
This is scheduled to be run down the hill and it should stay on the grass. We will use No. 3 C.C. Zipp who won her only try down the hill, she gets Mike Smith today. No. 4 Wealthy Shipman is in from Canada and lands in the barn of Richard Baltas and gets Bejarano in the irons. No. 7 Molly’s Honour just missed down the hill in her one try and Prat gets back on, he was on for the near miss. 3-4-7
No. 5 Wanda’s Touch exits our HTW list, she gets her third start and will like the move to this track and she has top connections. No. 7 Merrily Merrily also exits our HTW list and exits the same race as Wanda. No. 1 Bar Scene just missed in her first start at Del Mar back in November when getting caught on the line when bet down to the 2/1 chalk, she has a nice last work. 1-5-7
In this 7 furlong maiden race for fillies and mares we will go four deep using No. 1 Delitefull Lady who had a troubled first out and now gets a big jock switch. No. 3 Dominating Woman gets her second start off a nice second first out when well bet. No. 4 Mannerly exits the same race as the Delightful Lady and looks to be sitting on another good effort. No. 7 Chaybaby is a first time starter for Baffert who they paid $975k for, she is by Curlin and could be anykind. 1-3-4-7
5th 1-3-4-7 (.50 cent pick five cost $18.00).
Down the hill they go and we will stay outside in this downhill race using No. 9 Born to Be Winner who is in from back East and lands in the barn of Doug O’Neill and gets Prat off a nice last work. No. 10 Space Cadet who ran ok in her one grass race last out going a mile, she has the right style. No. 11 Time for Ebby exits our HTW list as a $$$ play but is on the also list, if she gets in we will use. 9-10-(11).
$75k optional claimers go a flat mile on the dirt and we will use three runners exiting the same race. No. 2 Silent Bird the winner who is looking for his fifth straight win. No. 4 Conquest Cobra who finished 4th but has a nice last work and is getting his third start off the layoff and No. 5 Clever Royal who was fifth but likes this track. 2-4-5
No. 2 Westmont gets his third off the layoff and Kent D gets the call, look for a huge run today. No. 3 Mr. Louis gets Prat back on today, he was on for the maiden score. No. 6 Sizzlin Square has won two of his three starts here and gets off the grass. 2-3-6
Exacta box 2-3-6
