SANTA ANITA

Race 1

This race is no way to start a Friday the 13th but we will suggest just take this race very carefully as we have a sorry bunch of fillies and mare in this 40k maiden claimer. No. 2 Gale In The Vale ran okay last March and No. 3 So Hottie has faced much tougher in her four career starts. 2-3

Race 2

No. 1 Turk has really burned up the cash losing his last two starts at .40 cents on the dollar after looking like a real good horse in his first start for Baffert. No. 2 Cape Truth is by the hot sire Cape Town and looks ready to fire at first asking, No. 4 Mythical Power is the other Baffert in the race and this guy has a big time work since his first start. 1-2-4

Race 4

No. 5 Boule D’or continues his rapid decent down the ladder but still has some run, No. 8 South Coast takes the plunge to the bottom and his speed will be mighty dangerous in here if he still has three legs, No. 9 Raise The Heat is an old pro and at nine still gives his best. 5-8-9
