SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 Million Seller is a 300k A.P.Indy who ships in from Kentucky for trainer Motion, he puts the blinkers and Bejarano on, No. 4 Third Down will love the stretchout and Gomez in start #3. No.1 Acronym exits the same race as Third Down, she also exits our HTW list and will love the longer distance being sired by Empire Maker. 1-2-4

Race 6

No. 1 Raise the Heat and No. 2 Stormin Away both take steep drops in class but retain top jocks so all must not be bad, both are older geldings so just maybe the connections are trying to squeeze just one more win out of them.
