Santa Anita Horse Play of the Day

One note of importance, trainer Richard Baltas always has his big stable ready for this meet and we love it when he sends out two uncoupled runners in the same race and especially when it’s a grass race and we have the situation here.

Baltas sends out No. 6 Temple Keys and he puts top turf rider Kent Desormeaux on today and he is 6/1 on the morning line, he also sends out No. 7 Ice Kat at 20/1, and he exits the same last race and was  just 1/4 of a length behind Temple Keys. The Favorite in the race No. 5 Spanish Hombre also exits the race and was just a length and a quarter ahead of Temple Keys.

We say Kent D will be riding hard here and if able to get the untroubled trip can pop at double digits as we hope his stablemate can get up for second.

We will be on No. 6 Temple Keys to win and place and make an exacta box using all three, 5-6-7.
