Santa Anita Race 5 - Post: 3:09 PT

1-Doitforandrew (7/2)

European import has been victimized by a pair of rough trips in his first two U.S. outings but he continues to very impressive in the a.m. so we’re going to give the Phil D’Amato-trained 3-year-old one more chance in this first-level allowance turf miler.  The English-bred gelding is assured a ground-saving trip from his rail post and seems likely to display improved tactical speed in a race that projects to have easy early fractions.  At 7/2 on the morning line, he offers a reasonable gamble.

10-Hero Status (5/2)

A $270,000 2021 OBS March sale purchase, this talented 3-year-old colt finally makes it to the races more than a year later and has trained like he’s ready to verify the promise he displayed when he smoked a quarter of a mile during the preview session in :21 flat.  Recent workouts have been equally impressive, so with a clean break and a clear trip from his outside draw this M. Glatt-trained son of Flatter should be hard to beat at first asking.
