Santa Anita Race 4 Post: 2:41 PT

6-Flying Business (9/5)

Drawn comfortably outside, adding blinkers and switching to Flavien Prat, the daughter of Gervinho makes her first start since being claimed by Mark Glatt (a powerful 25% with the first-off-the-claim angle) and should return to winning form at this six and one-half furlong distance that complements her stalking style. A good, healthy recent work tab that includes a bullet three-furlong drill (:36 flat, fastest of 21) and a confident boost in class from the $12,500 level are other positive factors that make her a win play and rolling exotic single.

Santa Anita Race 6.  Post: 3:44 PT  

6-Secret Touch (2-1)

Easily disposed of a $16,000 claiming field at Del Mar in late August and today is triple-jumped in class by new trainer Mark Glatt in what we’ll take as a strong sign of confidence (as stated in our fourth race analysis, this barn has superior stats with the first-off-the-claim angle). The veteran gelding retains Umberto Rispoli and projects to enjoy a comfortable pace-stalking trip outside, just where he likes to be. At 2-1 on the morning line, he offers good value in the win pool and is rolling exotic play.
