Santa Anita – First Race - Post time: 12:30 PT
3-Du Jour (9/5)
Was an excellent runner-up to next-out winner Cathkin Peak in his debut last November and then ran much better than the line will show in a maiden main track affair last month, when he was forced to race wide throughout while making a premature move, hitting the front in mid-stretch, but then paying the price late to wind up third in a strong race for the level. With the switch to F. Prat he’s sure to receive the patient ride that will bring out his best, so at anywhere close to his morning line of 9/5, he’s a win play and rolling exotic single.
Golden Gate Fields – Seventh Race - Post time: 4:31 PT
1 – Party Spirit (6-1)
Made a successful U.S. debut last month when beating maidens convincingly in a race that that produced a next-out win by the runner-up, and today she moves into first-level allowance company while shortening to a sprint, The M. Badilla-trained filly appears to have a sharp turn of foot, so this drop back in trip shouldn’t be an issue, Two easy breezes since she raced are a positive sign, so at 6-1 on the morning line this English import offers good wagering value both in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
