OAK TREE @ SANTA ANITA

Race 1

Let's take a little shot with a price play and make a small wager on No. 3 No Cream Or Sugar who showed a new dimension in her last start with jockey Julien Couton in the irons as she took back and made a nice late run, the price will be right. 3

Race 2

No. 4 Sir Ben had his race over the track and now gets the services of Joel Rosario, game set and match. 4

Key Play

$20 win and place 4 for $40

Race 3

Very little early speed in here, the two that look to have a shot at the early lead are No. 1 Dirt Diver and No. 5 Niger River with No. 4 Union Soldier tracking from the get go. 1-4**-5

Key Play

$2 exacta box 1-4-5 for$12

$2 exacta box 4 with 1-5 for$8

$10 win and place 4 for $20

Race 4

Down the hill we go with 2yo colts most of which are first time starters, this one is really a pass, but if you must, let's go with No. 4 Body Builder who should take to the grass as his sire is Horse Chestnut and his Dam has dropped two winners from two starters including a grass winner. The horse that will take all the action is No. 5 Via Verde as he looks first or second once again. 4-5

Race 5

This one is another pass as no one looks like they can win, there is enough speed in here that someone may benefit from a fast early pace and the ones that will be coming late are No. 1 Nanny Ogg, No. 3 Youknowwhatilike, No. 4 Mark Of A Star. PASS

Race 6

No. 4 Rose Diamond makes her first start in the U.S. and her trainer hits at around 30% with out of the country shippers. No. 5 Cherryblossommiss finally broke her maiden after seven attempts but has always shown good talent and her lone turf try was excellent. No. 7 Dotsy Jean likes the grass and just doesn’t run very many bad races. 4-5-7

Race 7

No. 3 Owners Manual looks one two with this sorry group of horses running on this Saturday card and in fact the entire card stinks. 3

Key Play

$10 win and place 3 for $20

Race 8

No. 2 Gotta Have Her may outclass these, No. 6 Queen Of the Catsle has won six of 12 turf races and has a win and a second on this downhill course from two attempts. 2-6

Race 9

No. 9 A Clever Ten will sit right off all the early speed and make one run for the win. 9

Key Play

$1 pick three

7th 3

8th all

9th 9 for $11

$5 double

8th 2-6

9th 9 for $10
