Santa Anita Race 5:  Post: 3:11 PT  

2-Danceformunny (5-1)

Encountered significant trouble when appearing to have plenty of run entering the far turn from a good stalking position and lost all chance in a similar grass router for starter’s allowance fillies and mares last time out. She’s drawn nicely inside today and should draft into a comfortable ground-saving position just behind the leaders, so with clear sailing the R. Baltas-trained daughter of Munnings should pose a real danger.  At 5-1 on the morning line she offers good value in the win pool and in the rolling exotics. 

Santa Anita Race 7:  Post: 4:13 PT  

5-Colt Fiction (6-1)

Probably didn’t have a whole lot behind him when graduating in a maiden $50,000 main track sprint at Del Mar in late August but he did it with plenty left in the tank and appeared to be to be looking around a bit while on the lead for most the journey. He’s tackling tougher today and switching to grass in this starter’s allowance sprint but he’s also adding blinkers, which could improve his concentration considerably. He’s worth a play at or near his morning line of 6-1.
