SANTA ANITA

Race 4 - #4 Valiant Effort - Was down on the inside chasing the pace in this 6½ downhill race and the rail is not the place to be. This guy gutted it out till the end losing by less than a length. If he gains an outside post next time out you can send it in.

Race 7 - #7 Utahan - Is in top form and now will go from a low profile barn to the one of Jerry Hollendorfer off the 25K claim. Mr. H got this guy for one of his top clients and also retained part ownership. You won’t see 9-1 next time, but may find this guy in the winner’s circle. He will also receive a big rider upgrade.

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 3 - #5 Storm Surge - Came from last to first in the stretch and won for fun. This guy looks like a repeater.
