When your 4/1 lock of the day loses in a photo, you know its going to be a brutal day at the track. Whatever, the train rolls onward. Let’s have ourselves a Saturday at Santa Anita, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 54k
#9 Maxim Rate (12/1) – She was 235k at auction and is working like a good thing. The Conductor isn’t sold on the runners with experience in here and will key this 1st time starter in the exacta and trifecta.
Race 2: 6½ Furlongs. Clm 12500n2L
*Never a Doubt Free Weekend Lock of the Day #3 Facts Matter (2/1) – Taking a huge drop in class with good early speed and cutting back to a sprint, the Conductor can’t see her losing.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. F.S. MC 50000
#12 Comegowithme (8/1) – She’s dropping to the claiming race for the first time and her debut effort two starts back was the fastest race in this field on the Conductor’s numbers.
Race 4: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) F. G3 Robert J. Frankel Stakes
#2 Escape Clause (7/2) – She loves to win and runs her race no matter what the surface, distance, or competition. She’s the type of racehorse the Conductor loves.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Clm 8000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Monterey Shale (6/1) – He has good early speed, is cutting back to a sprint and is working well. The Conductor loves him at a nice number.
Race 6: 6 ½ Furlongs. Clm 25000
#9 Treasure Hunter (4/1) – He’s dropping in class and looks to be rounding into form after his last quality start. He is the class of the field.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. MC 30000
#5 Bachchan (10/1) – This field looks ripe for a 1st time starter and this colt is working like a rocket for top connections at Santa Anita. His sire also wins at a 19% clip with debut runners.
Race 8: 1 1/4 Mile. (Turf) F. G1 American Oaks
#5 Princess Warrior (6/1) – An impressive winner at the G2 level last start, she’s steadily improving and hasn’t run a bad race on the grass. She’s drawn well and will be very dangerous.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. Alw 50000s
#7 Macwinnon (4/1) – His maiden breaker at Santa Anita last start destroys this field.
Race 10: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.MC 50000
#11 Madaket Sunset (5/1) – She’s progressed in each start and is dropping to the claiming ranks for the first time. We also have top connections in our corner.
