Thursday's 5th race (3:02pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a Starter
Allowance event for 4-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the turf
course (rail at 24 feet).
#2 Me Likey Mikey (6-1) failed to fire in lone turf start but he broke
slow in that BHP sprint. Decarchy is an 11% turf sire and dam has tossed
a grass winner. Puype excels dirt/turf and Leparoux should fit this one
like a glove.
#7 Sanibel Sid (5-2) needed his turf sprint return for Ellis. He ran
well in two routes on dirt/turf in 2011 and should spring forward 2nd
off the shelf.
#10 Baby Blake (3-1) is a money burner with an affinity
for the place. Bejarano sticks.
#1 Sarangani (6-1) ran well in lone turf
outing and will take them as far as he can from the hedge.
Courage (5-1) smartly won his dirt sprint bow at the Gulf and Peter
Miller has him now. Gomez hops aboard the surface switcher.
$16 to win #2
