Santa Anita Race 5:  Post: 2:35 PT

3-Vetoed (8/5)

This Bob Baffert-trained gelding failed to beat a horse vs. straight maidens when last seen in late November at Del Mar but he’s looked fine in the morning in the interim, so we’re expecting the son of Bayern to bounce back with an effort that should be more than good enough to handle this modest assignment. At or near his morning line of 8/5, he’s a win play and rolling exotic single.

Santa Anita RACE 7:  Post: 3:38 PT

3-Armagnac (7/5)

Was given a race sprinting in his debut last month and got plenty out of it after finishing a distant third without being knocked about.  With the switch to Johnny V., a stretch-out in trip, and the addition of Lasix, the well-regarded son of Quality Road seems certain to step forward in a big way.  Additionally, a sharp recent workout  points him out.
