Saber’s Santa Anita analysis for Friday

Santa Anita

Race 1 

California-bred maiden fillies and mares go 5 1/2 furlongs on the grass. We like three runners exiting the same last race. No. 5 Cassie Belle who finished second less than a length in front of No. 1 Envy with No. 2 Spanish Channel finishing a close fourth. 5-1-2 

Race 2 

California-bred $50K maiden fillies and mares go 6 1/2 furlongs. No. 4 Little Miss Ellie gets jockey Flavien Prat riding today as she looks to break her string of three straight seconds. No. 5 Rickie Nine Toes gets off the grass and the bug boy Alexis Centeno riding. 4***-5 

Race 3 

California-bred 2-year-old maidens go 5 1/2 furlongs on the grass. No. 7 By Moonlight ran a nice even race first out at Del Mar. That race has him set for a big run today. No. 3 That Corey is a very live first-time starter. 7-3 

Race 4 

$20K 3-year-old fillies go 6 1/2 furlongs. No. 3 Dehydration will show all of her early speed on the drop. No. 6 Flying Business gets jockey Flavien Prat riding first off the Mark Glatt claim. 3-6 

Race 5 

$62,500 optional fillies and mares travel a flat mile on the grass. No. 1 Tapwater runs big every time she goes to the post and looks to have found a group of girls she can beat. No. 4 Gypsy Spirit is in tip top form. 1**-4 

Race 6 

$32K claimers go 1 1/16 miles. No. 3 Justin’s Quest just did miss at this level last out going a flat mile on the grass. No. 6 Secret Touch was in that race and he finished fourth and has had a race since. 3-6 

Race 7 

$62,500 optional claimers go six furlongs. No. 5 Surfing Star finished right behind Microrithms last out going 5 1/2 furlongs and will like the extra half a furlong today. No. 7 Champagneonme also exits the race and gets his first start off the John Sadler $80K claim. 5-7 

Race 8 

California-bred maiden fillies and mares travel a flat mile on the grass. No. 5 Cheerful Charm comes off a good second last out at this level and distance on the grass. No. 8 Rockie Causeway missed by a half length last out and is the one to beat. 8-5
