Santa Anita Race 1:  Post: 1:00 PT

10-Roy C (4-1)

Maiden claiming 2-year-old has the classic two-sprints-and-a-stretch-out pattern combined with the first-time-for-a-tag angle while also making the monumental jockey change to F. Prat.  The P. Miller-trained gelding has okay numbers and a steady, even style of running so at 4-1 on the morning line he’s worth a play in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics. 

Santa Anita Race 8 – Post: 4:52 PT

3-Synthesis (5/2)

Looks very much like the controlling speed in this first-level allowance main track middle distance affair and given that type of trip the J. Mullins-trained gelding should be pretty tough to catch. A three-time winner over the local main track, the son of First Samurai missed by a head in a starter’s allowance affair at Los Alamitos last time out, and after a six week freshening should return to his best form under conditions that are made to order.
