SANTA ANITA

Race 1 - #2 Atta Girl - First-time starter broke right on top from post position 10, but Espinoza took hold and dropped her back. He came four wide, dropped to the inside and still had a ton of horse. Espinoza had to check off heels and she lost her shot in what was a very poor ride. Look for a new jock next time. Just go to the window and bet. $$$$$

Race 3 - #7 A Taco Short - A first-time starter that ran second last time. Taco look to have a big say in next start.

Race 4 - #6 Kelly Leak - Classy colt was so much the best in this mile on the grass that it was scary. He was in tight and steadied off heels midway through the second turn. Had to wait into the stretch, swung out for room and rallied under a hard ride to win easy. $$$$$

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1 - #2 Tops Image - Was making a strong move when caught behind horses and boxed. Once clear she split rivals and came three wide to finish an easy second, She will be a very good bet next time and the price should be right.

Race 2 - #4 Stellas Posada - Was blocked behind horses and had to wait. He then swung out for room while widest of all. The jock lost his whip, but Stella continued to run on late.
