Santa Anita 8th race Post time: 4:49 PT

6-Goldini (2-1)

This genuine and consistent 3-year-old makes his first start since being gelded, adds blinkers, and shortens to his preferred trip, so there’s every expectation that the D. O’Neill-trained turf specialist is ready for a winning effort.  The son of Goldencents projects to enjoy a good stalking trip outside and then have every chance to take control when ready.  At 2-1 on the morning line there’s value to be found both in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.

Santa Anita 10th race – Post time: 5:51 PT

2 – Harbored Memories (5/2)

Shortening to an extended sprint and returning to grass, this M. Puype-trained colt looks ready to earn his diploma in his fourth career start.  Runner-up to subsequent Santa Anita Derby-G1 winner Rock Your World under these conditions on New Year’s Day, the Washington-bred colt makes his first start since early March and has trained like he’s fit and ready.  Listed at 5/2 on the morning line and offering excellent value at that price if you can get it, he’s a win play and rolling exotic single.
