Santa Anita Race 5 - Post: 2:49

5-Delmona (3-1)

Sophomore filly performed well in good company overseas last year, including a runner-up effort in a listed stakes at Deauville when beaten a neck by subsequent Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint S.-G2 winner Twilight Gleaming.  Both of her local races this year down the Hillside Course have been excellent, including a game win in a first-level allowance dash in late March.  She has been impressive in the a.m. for trainer J. Mullins in the interim, and there is every expectation that she will handle today’s stretch out to a mile. 

Santa Anita Race 10 - Post: 6:13 PT

4-Constitutionaffair (7/2)

Four-time winner over the Santa Anita turf course is fresh from a career-top score in a $40,000 claimer over a mile last month, and while he’s never been tried at today’s nine furlong trip today’s distance shouldn’t be an issue.  A bullet half mile main track drill (:46 4/5) tells us he remains right on edge, so at 7/2 on the morning line there’s good value to be found both in the win pool and as a rolling exotic single.
