SANTA ANITA

RACE 4 NO. 2 CHICKATINI: Was well bet in this debut race but broke slow and was far back in the five furlong turf sprint. She swung five wide into the stretch and was forced out even further in upper stretch. Still came running to just miss the show dough by a half-length. There was a lot to like with this filly and she will be one tough cookie next time out. $$$

RACE 8

NO. 8 DABSTER: If you listened to the Race Day Las Vegas show on Breeders’ Cup Friday before our huge seminar you would have heard this writer give out this horse. He got the money, paying $11.40, and we will come right back with him. Loved the way he kicked clear late and has the look of a colt who will savor a flat mile on the dirt. $$$
