SANTA ANITA

REV HER UP: Jockey Joe Talamo had this girl far back as he must have thought he was riding Silky Sullivan; she made a big late wide run but just had too much ground to make up despite flying late. She ran fourth but lost by less than two lengths.

DEVIL ON THE ROOF: Dropped into this 25k maiden claimer and was odds on, he moved up inside on the turn and looked ready to roll but had to wait for some room to develop; when it did he just stormed home and won going away. He was claimed by the hot Cerin and will most likely be spotted in a claim proof starter allowance race. $$$$$

OUR PARTNER: Had no shot in this paceless race as the winner dictated slow fractions and just cruised home wire-to-wire. If he finds some pace to run at in his next start upgrade his chances.

LAMM: Battled tooth and nail the entire way in this mile turf race and still was trying to get to the winner late but just did fail by a neck; no mistake for this guy next time out going long on the grass. $$$

EQUIPARADO: Ran a much improved race at 22/1 deadheating for the show and just missing the place by a half length. He was claimed by the sneaky A C Avila so be on the watch as he just might stretch this guy out on the grass.

JEHAN: Was last seen running at Fairplex last September but came back in this $62,500 optional claimer and just blitzed them winning going away. This guy has some back class and will move up and repeat.

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

MIKESWAYORTHEHIWY: Was in from Santa Anita and dropped into this cheap claimer; his odds were a juicy 7/1 and he just failed to pull off the upset losing the head bob to the odds on R Baze horse. There were no claims so look for this guy to find a good spot in his next start and a trip to the winners' circle, he will be a good single. $$$$$

RED HOT CHARLOTTE: Charlotte ran her heart out but just could not get to the lone speed on this front runner's bias today, she is in top form and will get a win soon if she can find a race with some early contested pace.

VICTORY CHECK: Don't miss this long shot special the next time he runs. This first time starter was green as grass but if you watched the race he finally got into stride late and came running like a deer. If he gets a little longer distance give him a big shot at what will be boxcars. $$$$$
