SANTA ANITA

Race 1

No. 4 Red Alarm gets back on the main after a failed attempt at the grass, she is the only one in this short five horse field that has won on the pro ride. 4

Race 2

Just six lined up in race two, No. 1 One Shot may forget to stop today, No. 6 Souvenir Slew looks live off the layoff. 1-6

Race 3

Just another six horse field as most of the horses are leaving town or settling into Hollywood Park which opens its meet next Wednesday. No. 3 Desperate looks as good as any on a Saturday card that looks lousy. 3

Race 4

Eight 10k claimers in race four, is this really a Saturday card in Southern California? No. 3 Si Chimi exits our HTW list, he showed renewed energy in his last and could be sitting on a win and the price will be there. 3
