OAK TREE at SANTA ANITA
Race 7 -- #3 Linda Lou - Was being bet like a good thing but it looked like there was some other speed in the race and she could get cooked in a speed duel. Trainer Richard Mandella had something new in mind as jockey Flores put her under a tight hold down on the inside and did not let her loose until midstretch. She cruised home for an easy win in this allowance race going a mile on the grass. Look for more good stuff from this up and coming filly. $$$$$
Race 8 -- #8 Sticky Candy - May have been best in here but got shuffled back early and then had to check off heels on the turn. She was switched to the outside for room and came four wide with her run but could not catch the lone speed. She was claimed for 32k out of this race and will go from one good barn to another.
Race 3 -- #7 Haimish Hy - Was in from Del Mar and made easy work of this crew despite trouble. This guy will move up and repeat. $$$$$
