We have night time racing at Santa Anita for Friday with a post time of 4pm.
I am going three deep in the first leg with #1, 5 and 10. Ransom Canyon moves up in class but a sharp workout and a win and second in his two most recent we get a great price. The one spot is winning 19% and this trainer is 20% third off a layoff. #5 Ezio has won 2 of 3 but came in 6th in his last after being claimed from Ellis. This new trainer though wins 23% second start. #10 Empty Headed is a horse I like to play and he rewarded us with a win in his last. 32% of winners are priced 5-1 or more for this race. #5 Ezio has scratched so I will put in #8 Jomelo who Bejarano jumps back on.
In the 6th race #1 Pap Kade has won 3 of 5 with a sharp workout last week and again we get a great price of 5-1. #6 Templar legs up Baze and sports a win and a second in his last two. I am also using #7 Afleet In Time with red-hot Bejarano who won last out.
In race 7 we head to the Hillside course. The #1 Salsita is a horse I like to back and at 20-1 oh boy! #5 Birdlover with Smith shortens up for this race. I will also use the morning line favorite, the #8 Home Journey who move down in class off a G3 win and has some nice workouts. A single of this horse is not a crazy idea. #4 Camryn Kate has won her last two on the hill but moves up in class today. As usual the Hillside race has lots of potential winners.
I am only going to go two deep in the final leg, the #7 and #9. #7 Blame It On Takela is another possible single on tickets. Three seconds in a row today could be picture day. I will also use #9 Aaron Again with Bejarano. (Blame it has been scratched so I will use Talamo on #8 Sharpener)
My ticket will cost $36
Our best bet won again yesterday with Rocket Heat holding on for the win. My Best Bet today is in the first race Addendum the #2 who is coming in here off a win last month.
