SANTA ANITA

Race 1

2yo fillies going two furlongs, we will stay with the best 2yo trainers and go with No. 4 This Time Baby, No. 5 Blue Ribbon Trick -- both fillies trained by Walther Solis and we will toss into the mix No. 8 Laura’s Pleasure from the Mullins barn who has win early breeding. 4-5-6

Key Play

$2 exacta box 4-5-6 for $12

Race 2

No. 1 Soldier Betty must be going good as her trainer Bruce Headley moves her up a notch off a solid second and he puts Solis in the irons. No. 2 Wood Art beat Soldier Betty last time they ran, No. 6 Welken exits our HTW list off back-to-back place finishes, she drops in class today and will be tracking Wood Art from the start. 1-2-6

No. 3 Kathy’s Garden gets her first start off the Julio Canani claim, No. 5 Patricia’s Gem makes her first start in over a year for trainer Dick Mandella. No. 7 Joyance exits our HTW list and looks like the key. 7 with 1-3-5

No. 2 Comisado is a hard knocker who ships in from Golden Gate, this is his best distance with two wins, two seconds and a third from five starts at a 1 1/16. No. 7 Parko will have to be caught. No. 6 Dadsalittleunusual looks one two in this spot and we will key him.

Race 6

No. 1 Winterscore has the rail and speed, No. 3 High And Mighty will be tough with a clean break today. No. 8 Big Wave Rider will appreciate the added furlong. 1-3-8

Race 7

This is one tough bunch going 6½ furlongs on the downhill turf course, we will take our shot with two outside horses -- No. 9 Quick Enough, a comebacker for trainer Ron Ellis, he has run two times on this course with a win and a second and his tactical speed will play well. No. 10 Railroad has two wins on this course and is another with good tactical speed, he also has a very good 4 furlong work since his last start. 9-10

Race 8

No. 1 Waddup G gets back to the starter allowance ranks after a good try in a much tougher non winners of one high priced straight allowance race, she is the one to beat but the rail is a tough spot to win from in these down hill sprints. No. 6 Sky Marni ran super on this layout last time losing by a head. No. 9 Queen Mariles has speed and a great post.

Race 3

There is a 21K+ pick six carryover so let’s take a shot at these short fields and see if we can hit it with a small ticket. In this race, No. 2 Shawkilt Sundae has won five of nine here at the gate if she clears she is gone, the one time No. 1 Good Time’n Dixie ran with her she finished third and that could happen today, if so it could set things up for No. 3 Topper’s Smiling with jockey Alvarado sitting right off the hot pace. 1-2-3

Race 4

Trainer Jerry has the entry of No. 1 Sacred Light the closer and No. 1A Nsync Lynx the speed. No. 3 Squire Trelawny gets his first start at the gate off the Delia claim. 1-3

Race 5

There is little or no early speed in this 1 1/16 maiden 20k turf route. No. 5 Don’t Tell 15/1 on the morning line has long shot potential. No. 6 Californya Dreamin has been sprinting at Santa Anita and just may be the lone speed. No. 7 Mysterious Marissa is another Santa Anita shipper that may show some early foot. 5-6-7

Race 6

No. 5 Come On Mama drops to the price of her last win and Baze sticks, No. 9 Baby Let It Roll exits our HTW list and looks perfectly spotted for a repeat win. 5-9

Race 7

32k maidens going 1 1/16 on the grass, No. 3 Kyle Draws Aces has turf breeding and will show speed today and the price is right at 12/1, No. 5 Lucky No. Thirteen ships in from Santa Anita and is another with some turf breeding, No. 6 Grand Turk has raced three times on the grass against much tougher. 3-5-6

Key Play

Race 8

No. 2 Johnny The Watch was exiting our HTW list last time out, he looked like a winner but hung like a rat down the lane, he now gets a nice rider change. No. 4 Devil Cielo and No. 5 Letsgobyebye are the main danger. 2-4-5
