SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 2 White Angel gets her second start off the layoff and she made a big late move going 7 furlongs, this distance of 1 1/8 may be right up her alley but she will have to catch No. 4 Kind Lady who will be streaking right out of the gate. 2-4

Race 2

No. 2 Jimmy Da Brick shipped in from Golden Gate on Feb. 6 and just crushed a field of 32k claimers and now gets a confident boast in class by a very sharp trainer. No. 3 Trevor’s Clever drops like a hot potato but may enjoy this softer group. 2-3

Key Play

$4 double

1st 2-4

2nd 2-3 for $16

Race 3

No. 8 Olympic Magic may find himself on the front end, if he clears he could go all the way, No. 3 Number One Edition and No. 7 Wolfgang hit the wire together last time going this distance and will be right there again today. First time starter No. 5 Andwhatelse has a hot trainer and hot jockey and is a must use. 3-5-7-8

Key Play

$1 exacta box 3-5-7-8 for $12

Race 4

No. 3 Thorondor exits a key race and a very tough race at that, he hung in until mid-stretch and faded to fifth. He started his career on the grass and now is back on the green and looks very good in this spot. 3

Race 5

No. 3 Trufflesfromheaven won her only start at this 7 furlong distance; she drops a tad in class and gets long shot jock Kayla Stra who can ride. No. 5 Blame The Win has won three of six and exits the same race as truffles, No. 9 Snow On Christmas was just claimed and gets a move up in class and she has the style for this distance. 3-5-9

Key Play

$2 exacta box 3-5-9 for $12

Race 6

No. 2 Dave’s Revenge will get a great trip behind all the speed and her trainer hits at around 28% going a route to a sprint. No. 8 Life By R R looked like a solid 2yo and is now making her 3yo debut for Frankel and the hot Solis is on board. 2-8

Race 7

We will take a shot and single No. 1 My Maloof Rocker in the late pick four, she has the rail and the perfect jock takes over in Rosario. 1

Race 8

No. 1 Mi Rey has speed and the rail; he drops one class and his trainer does good with this kind of move, No. 3 Flip The Penny is always right there, No. 4 Armstrong Won can win if he moves forward off his last, No. 7 Greedy Way is another speed ball that gets a big rider upgrade, No. 9 Spot The Diplomat will be coming late while No. 13 Attack Jack gets a big drop in class but this trainer and jockey combo have had a good meet.

1-3-4-7-9-13

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1

As the horses dwindle at the Gate it is hard to find many races to really bet on, in this race we have only five signed on and No. 1 Black Gulch looks best but has no wins at this track or at this distance and he will be a short price. No. 3 Rogue Racer is the speed, he drops and may take them on a merry chase. 1-3

Race 2

No. 3 Jet Jockey is the speed and gets a speed jock back on. No. 5 Hijinks will be the one to fear late. 3-5

Key Play

$2 double

1st 1-3

2nd 3-5 for $8

Race 3

No. 3 Smooch Me ships in and drops from the straight maiden ranks to this 20k maiden claimer. 3

Race 4

No. 2 Out Of Seattle is in top form and is the one to beat, No. 4 Acekingqueenjacten will have to be run down. 2-4

Race 5

There is a ton of speed lined up so we will go with the ones that will be coming and they are No. 3 Code Red, No. 7 Time To Honor and No. 8 Portland Storm. 3-7-9

Race 6

In this wide open race we will use all of them in a pick three. 1-2-3-4-5-6

Race 7

The light may have went on for No. 3 Glacier Peak who won big time last out breaking her maiden, No. 6 False Impression ships in and will find this group much easier than the one she faced in the La Habra last time out. 3-6
