SANTA ANITA

Race 6 - #4 Fu Peg He Rat - Was last seen at Fairplex last September and was let go in this race as the 16-1 long shot. He made a big four-wide move and looked like he was going to blow by them. Unfortunately, he drifted in and had to be steadied hard. He did rally to pick up the show dough in a big effort.

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1 - #4 River Lord - Was best in here, but had so much trouble I can’t even get into it. No mistakes for this guy next time out and he wins.

Race 4 - #5 Johnny The Watch - Was running with the speed early on, but took back to last and looked broken down. He came off the rail and rallied while in traffic into the stretch. Once clear, he stormed home for the win. $$$$$

Race 7 - #4 Bodacat - Shipped in from Santa Anita by Robert Hess and was dropped into this cheap claimer. He won for fun and Hess may have gotten away with one since there were no claims. Look for the move up and another score for Hess and the horse. $$$$$
