Saturday’s Santa Anita Park Recap – June 14
Edge to early-pressing types on the fast main track with two horses
going virtually wire-to-wire (5f, 9f). Turf course played fair with an
8f wire job, two stalking winners 98f, 6.5f), and a late running
Four-bagger for Joe Talamo including both Grade 1’s. Phil D’Amato saddled two turf winners including Obviously in the G1 Shoemaker Mile. Jorge Gutierrez saddled two maiden winners and Talamo rode both.
Using the Primary – Secondary Ticket strategy on Saturday, I tabbed three Primary winners (Midnight Storm, Lil Bit O’ Fun, Iotapa) and two Secondary winners (Nueva Fortuna, Obviously).
