It’s closing day at Santa Anita and we start with the $75K Siren Lure at 5 1/2 furlongs on the grass. No. 1 Torosay had his prep and now the blinkers come off. No. 4 Sparky Ville was very unlucky to lose last out in the Grade 3 Daytona by the shortest of noses. 1-4 

Race 2 

$40K optional claimers travel a flat mile on the grass. No. 7 Factorial will be the speed on the stretch out. No. 6 Bud Knight will sit chilly off the fast pace and make one run. No. 3 Salvator Mundi looks live off the layoff. 7-6-3 

Race 3 

2-year-old maidens go 4 1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Girther has been working like a runner. No. 2 Dr. Schivel owns a huge work for his debut race. No. 6 Bordeaux Red makes his first start for trainer Keith Desormeaux who just popped with a 2-year-old first timer last week. 2-**-6-1

California bred maiden fillies and mares go 5 1/2 furlongs on the grass. No. 4 Ole Silver will like the move to a grass sprint off a better-than-looked effort sprinting on the dirt in her debut race. No. 12 Bella Chica is the filly to beat off her last on this on this course. 12-4

The $100K Grade 3 San Juan Capistrano at 1 3/4 miles on the grass. No. 6 Ward’n Jerry is in top form and can get the trip. No. 4 Siberian Iris looks the danger with jockey Drayden Van Dyke back on board today. 8**-4
