SANTA ANITA:

   SKYS SNOW: 2-year-old all set to stretch out and run a big one. Look for this girl at a mile or longer to collect at a price.

   DEAL DONE: First timer broke slowly and was floated out into the turn. Angled in approaching the backstretch and made a huge move to win going away. Absolutely huge race. Will move up and score again for very good trainer R. Cardenas. $$$.

   ZAM ZAM: 2-year-old raced three deep early, steadied and forced out into the first turn. Ran head to head through the entire stretch to win a head bob. Super game. Follow as this girl could turn out to be special.

   WISDOM’S MARK: Was inside and racing very green. Steadied off heels on the bend, split rivals in game fashion, but lacked a final move. Just love this guy’s middle move. Should set him up for the money run in next. Bet with confidence.

   DA NINE: Was forced in and steadied on the turn. Angled out into the stretch and made a very nice move to get the place at 22-1. Clear sailing gets the dough in next at a price.

   MS POWFUL: Was coming off a key race, but that was in May. Still got bet to even money. Ran two races going five and six wide entire trip, but still won going away and jock had horse left. This girl moves up and wins again.

BAY MEADOWS:

   LAZAR: Was much the best in last but was boxed behind a wall of horses at the half. Split horses on the second turn and closed with gusto to get beat a head. Send it in on this guy in next going long on the grass.

   DIXIELANDS DEVIL: Was sitting on a big one in last. Would have won, but steadied sharply several times in the stretch to cost him the race. No mistakes in next. $$$.

   SISTER MARY HOUGH: I was all over this filly in last but received a horrible ride by jock Duran. Ran huge to get the place at 4-1. Gets the cash in next but won’t see 4-1.

   IT’S A TRUE CHINA: Was making a huge move into the lane but got pushed very wide to cost him much ground. Still closed steadily to be fourth. Good things in store in next at boxcars. Don’t miss!

   ONRY WONWAY: Was caught inside winner through stretch and seemed intimidated. Did not want to go through, but still only got beat a neck at 9-1. Breaks maiden in next.

   MOVOREEN: Sitting on a big one at a nice price.

   NINA’S TAXING: Made her move a little too early in last and got caught. Jock learned something in this one and will not make same mistake in next.

BELMONT PARK:

   AZTEC PEARL: Ran a very nice race at 14-1. Was in traffic through the stretch but still finished with interest. This girl is waking up and ready to run a smasher!

   RELATIVA: Delaware shipper was let go at 15-1 in last. May have got there, but had a case of the very wides into the stretch. Got beat less than a length and will be ready for a winning run in next going long on the turf.

   HOLIDAY LADY: Stumbled badly at the start and was bumped hard. Had no shot at beating the runaway winner, but completely destroyed the rest of the field. Will be the easiest winner in next. Bet with gusto if you don’t mind a short price.

   DR WALSH: Was making a winning move on the inside, but got trapped. Had to alter course to the outside and it cost him the race. Clean sailing gets job done in next.

ARLINGTON PARK:

   SYLVANITE: First-time starter got completely left and was far back. Made huge five-wide move coming for home and got the show dough. Will be live item in next. $$$.

   TRADE BEADS: Had a ton of trouble in last at 16-1. Much better fate in store at another big price. Long shot special!
