SANTA ANITA

Race 1 - #2 Cachuma Kid - Was exiting a highly rated maiden special race on the pro ride and trying the grass for the first time. Ran well, finishing fifth but may prefer the main. If switched back, dig deep and take a big shot. $$$$$

Race 7 - #5 Lease of Life - Broke slow and was far back. He did make a big four-wide run into the stretch and was flying in just coming up short. Look for a jockey change on this guy next time out and a trip to the winner’s circle.

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 1 - #4 Magnificent Blend - Was bumped hard at the start and took back. Then he made a five wide move into the stretch and came on for the show dough. This looks like a good pickup for trainer Jeff Mullins, who red-tagged this guy for 10K.
