SANTA ANITA

DON’T HOLLER: Had to wait off heels leaving the second turn, then steadied off heels into the stretch. Horse was checked hard again in midstretch, but finally got out and surged late to just get nosed for place. Won’t see 17-1 on this guy next time! Don’t miss at a price.

TIMBER BARON: Out of the 9-hole in last race, going 11/8 on the turf. Had to be rushed early and was caught 4-5 wide, then had to be steadied hard in the stretch. Ran fourth and beaten a little more than a length. Nice price playing coming up.

ABBEY BRIDGE:  Poor ride by G. Gomez, who took this girl to the inside and could never find room or get out to make her run. Watch for jockey change and bet.

GOLDEN GATE

ROCKET HOMBRE: Was running a winning race, but did not switch leads down the lane and got nailed at the wire. Sitting on a win. Should wire in next maiden event at six furlongs.

WINSTON WINSOME: Was bumped and pinched back at the start. Raced three wide to the stretch, then made a good run but had too much to do. Sitting on a win with a clean trip.

AIR’N’SEA / CAMDEN PINE: Like the way both of these guys are moving forward on the turf. Just ran together third and fourth, and may see them again soon in the same race. Look for them to run 1-2.
