SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 4 Uncle Jeep gets a drop in class by trainer Mike Mitchell and Gomez hops aboard, at 4/5 on the morning line we most likely will pass. No. 2 Cracked Code is sired by Omega Code who pops with about 16% with first time starters; No. 6 Hammurabi is a second time starter that showed some ability in his first race, if able to move forward off of that effort he can make an impact. 2-4-6

Race 2

None of these 3yo have run par for this level so we have a weak field going a flat mile. No. 2 Major Rock Star has run the fastest in sprints, his trainer looks to be trying to change his style from a front runner to an off-the-pace type, if he can sit he will win. No. 4 Race Caller Luke looks to have the pace advantage as he will try and take them gate to wire. 2-4

Race 3

No. 2 Everlasting Beauty is brought back in just six days by trainer Mike Mitchell, he just ran second on this course on Jan. 8, she has speed by may have some pace pressure up front and personal, if that happens she will have to contend with No. 7 Grace Anatomy who will be flying late under Gomez. 2-8

Race 4

No. 2 Natural Touch has run two good races on this track and likes this distance. No. 6 Timias is in to form and the one to beat albeit at a short price. No. 5 Orientation Hall exits our HTW list but looks overmatched in this race, we will use him on the back end of some exotics. 2-6

Race 5

No. 4 Powerofvoodoo has one win from 26 lifetime starts but may have found a soft spot to finally get the elusive win #2 and at 10/1 and long shot jock Chantal Sutherland we will take a shot. No. 6 My Maloof Rocker won her last start here at this distance on the grass, she has a hot trainer and jock and is the one to beat. 4-6

Race 6

No. 4 Secret Potion ships in from Golden Gate for trainer Hollendorfer off a 45 day break, he must like the way he is doing. No. 8 Natpolean looks on the improve and will get a great trip from her outside post. 4-8

Key Play

6th 4-8 for $20

Race 7

No. 2 Moonshine Alice has good speed and gets her second start on the West Coast if she clears she will be hard to run down. No. 7 Royal Taat gets the best of the draw and will be the one to fear most late. 2-7
