OAK TREE at SANTA ANITA

Race 3 -- #5 Bella Bubbles - Was close up early but fell back to last. She made a big run on the turn and blew them away down the lane to give trainer Amanda McKaughan another win at the meet. Keep an eye on Amanda as all her horses are live.

Race 6 -- #3 Quarter Given - Trainer Richard Mandella usually doesn’t have his first time starter cranked up and this guy was let go at the windows at almost 27-1. He made a nice run at the winner in this 7 furlong race but had to settle for the place money. Look for him to go long next time out.

GOLDEN GATE

Race 7 -- #7 Kleven's Verbatim - Ran huge on this turf course at almost 11-1. She could have won this race but did not see the odds-on favorite coming from the far outside. Give this girl a big shot if she comes back on the grass.
