SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 3 Kicken Vixen may be the one to use if you are playing pick but we will pass this race as there are only five entered.

Race 2

No. 2 Soldier Betty just exploded in the stretch when breaking her maiden here at this distance on Feb. 11 and looks placed well for another big effort. No. 3 Rare Nugget gets stretched out off a race in which she should have won, she will try and take them wire to wire. 2-3

Race 3

No. 2 Swingin Jim looks like the speed in this 40k maiden claimer, if he clears he could be long gone. No. 3 My T Quick is a live first time starter out of the Koriner barn that attracts Gomez. 2-3

Key Play

$2 double

2nd 2-3

3rd 2-3 for $8

Race 4

No. 1 Sorry Baby likes this track with a win and two seconds from three starts here, she drops a tad and looks like the one to beat. No. 7 Desperate exits our HTW list and makes her first start for trainer Jack Carava. 1-7

Key Play

$5 exacta box 1-7 for $10

Race 5

Speedball No. 2 Speedski will try the turf off her resounding maiden breaker and will try and take them wire to wire. No. 7 Flew First Class ran okay on this 6½ furlong downhill course in her first try and that experience will move her forward. No. 10 Wild Apart gets a great post for this race and will be stalking them from start to finish. 2-7-10

Key Play

$2 double

4th 1-7

5th 2-7-10 for $12

Race 6

No. 2 Miralo could be cranked and at a price in this his second start off the layoff for trainer Mike Puype. No. 6 Thunderfrmdownundr has not been seen since Del Mar of last year but has worked like he is ready to run a good one. 2-6

Key Play

$2 double

5th 2-7-10

6th 2-6 for $12

Race 7

No. 5 Madeo was eased in his last start the GRII San Fernando on Jan 17 he shows up here in a much easier spot and he must be okay as his trainer John Shirreffs does not take any chances with his horses unless the are in good shape. No. 8 Safety Zone finds the right pace scenario for his stale and the price will be generous. 5-8

Race 8

This 25k maiden claimer looks very contentious; we will use four and make a tri and some doubles from race seven. No. 6 Joint Agreement has been very unlucky in her last two as she could have won both times. No. 11 Stylin Deputy seems to hang late but is always there. No. 12 Samantha’s Rule drops tying to cash. No. 13 Miss Cherry is another who should have won her last start as she lost by a nostril despite trouble. 6-11-12-13
