SANTA ANITA

Race 1

In this 2 furlong 2yo race, we will stick with the best 2yo trainers and go with No. 9 Catch My Tale who is trained by top Turf Paradise trainer Talbot who also brings his jock with him to ride. No. 10 Sweet Tigger is trained by Walther Solis who looks to be loaded with good 2yo talent. 9-10

Race 2

No. 3 Street Car has high speed and almost took them all the way in his last start but got nailed on the line by the up and coming Mythical Power who ran second in the Sunland Park Derby, this guy looks like a short price winner. 3

Key Play

$5 double

1st 9-10

Race 3

No. 4 Bucks Bro looks to be sitting on the win, No. 5 River Echo ran behind Bro in his last start but will go better today as his main jock Bejarano gets back on, No. 6 Spirit Of Cochise comes off a maiden scored and ran second behind Bucks Bro when that one broke his maiden. 4-5-6

Race 4

This 25k maiden route is wide open and we will spread in the picks but key two in the exotics. No. 1 Kind Lady has the rail and speed, she will have to be caught, No. 7 More Than Music looks ready to stretch out for high percentage trainer Kathy Walsh who has had a hot hand of late winning with four of her last 10 starters. 1-7 with 3-5-6

Race 6

There is a ton of early speed in here which will set things for No. 6 Talktoomuch who exits our HTW list, she gets a turn back in distance and a big jockey change and the girl that beat her last time out came back and scored a repeat win. Her main danger will come from No. 7 Squeeze Me Tight who takes a big class drop. 6-7

No. 1 Anabaa’s Creation was last seen running in the big time in France last year and now shows up here in the Julio Canani barn off some works that say she is ready to fire a big shot. 1

Race 7

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer looks to have a strong entry with No. 1 Pretorian Falls and No. 1A Warren’s Dreaming who is stuck on the also list, if Falls goes she looks like the winner, while Dreaming is sitting there in case this comes off the grass and if that happens she will be the winner. 1-1A

No. 6 Shawnie Ora ships in from Santa Anita and has her claiming price hacked in half but Baze says he will ride and this girl may be too much for this group.
