Santa Anita Race 7:  Post time: 3:05 PT

7-North Pole (7/2)

Has disappointed in his last pair after a promising debut run but this son of Pioneerof the Nile – purchased as a yearling for $1,050,000 – is a first-time Lasix user removing blinkers and switching to turf, and given the projected pace scenario the S. Callaghan-trained colt looks very much like the controlling speed.  With the switch to J. Rosario, he looks quite capable of dominating from gate to wire while offering a good gamble at 7/2 on the morning line. 

Santa Anita Race 9:  Post time: 4:05 PT 

4-Lighthouse (5/2)

In a strong and contentious edition of the Las Cienegas S.-G3, we’re going to take a stand with this lightly-raced and improving daughter of Mizzen Mast, the winner of a valuable sprint stakes at Kentucky Downs last September and before that narrowly beaten in the Daisycutter S. at Del Mar.   A prior winner over the local lawn and training like she’s primed and ready, the S. Callaghan-trained four-year is listed at 5/2 on the morning line and will offers value at that price in the win pool and as a rolling exotic single.
