Santa Anita


Race #4 – The BC F&M Sprint – 7f  2:55 pm EDT


#5 – Lady Ninja = Richard Baltas trainee with Drayden Van Dyke in the irons. She is 9/10 ITM at SA. 2nd off a layoff and she’ll be rolling late in the lane.



Race #5 – The BC Turf Sprint – 5f on turf – 3:33 pm EDT


#5 – Stubbins = Doug O’Neill trainee with Flavien Prat in the irons. Exits a huge win in the G2 Woodford at Kee. Prat wins 24% with his turf runners.



Race #6 – The BC Dirt Mile – 1 mile – 4:10 pm EDT


#5 – Omaha Beach = 2nd off the shelf for Dick Mandella and Mike Smith. – Mandella does awfully well in his own backyard and this runner has been chomping at the bit to get back on the big stage.



Race #7 – The BC F&M Turf – 1 1/4 on turf – 4:54 pm EDT


#7 – Vasilka = She’s won at this distance and Flavien Prat will have in high gear turning for home as he knows how to get her best stride.



Race  #8 – The BC Sprint – 6f – 5:36 pm EDT


#9 – Imperial Hint = Gutsy winner in the G1 Vosburgh and his works are sharp. Javier Castellano in the saddle and this versatile runner will be awfully tough.



Race #9 – The BC Mile – 1 mile on the turf – 6:20 pm EDT


#11  Uni = Winner of the G1 First Lady and faced the boys in the past. Chad Brown spots them in the best places and Joel Rosario is ready to get his picture taken.



Race #10 – The BC Distaff  – 1 1/8 – 7:00 pm EDT


#4 – Midnight Bisou = She is seeking her 8th straight win and loves the oval at SA going 4/4 ITM. Mike Smith will give this lady a perfect ride.



Race #11 – The BC Turf – 1 1/2 on the turf – 7:40 pm EDT


#9 – Bricks and Mortar = Chad Brown trainee with Irad Ortiz in the saddle. They are seeking their 7th in a row and Ortiz wins 21% with his fast closing runners. This son of Giant’s causeway is a monster!



Race #12 – The BC Classic – 1 1/4 – 8:44 pm EDT


#10 – Vino Rosso = This son of Curlin was DQ’ed in the G1 Jockey Gold Cup and he is 1/1 at SA. – I think we see connections looking for some payback today. He’ll be up close and ready to fire when Ortiz hits the gas.
