Thursday's 1st race (1:00pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a $16,000 claiming event for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track. 

#5 Power Series (4-1) has fired Trifecta shots in four straight and has been popular at the claim box recently. Bejarano is 2-for-2 with Dominguez recently and the sharp 5yo gelding could fall into the right stalking trip behind the speedsters at a hint of a price.

In the 2nd race, an Optional Claiming dirt sprint, #2 Caminetto (7-5) earned the best last race number in a wire job graduation run at Del Mar and the show finisher came back to score. Bejarano sticks with Baffert's $500k early-pressing type and he meets a modest group in his first start vs. winners.

The Plays:

$18 to win #5

$12 Double 5-2

That was crazy. They called the second race a no contest.

The loose horse was Spinning Love.

A horse lost its rider and was running in the opposite direction. So the call went out to pull up. No one was hurt.

what happened in the 2nd at ANita to make it a no contest. That is usualy a mjor problem like half the field not finishing...

Why did you think Joe Carl would go wire to wire, tv?

Belmont 5th 7/3/2 a common pattern called the splitzacta. Top choices on top and bottom of the tote board.

Example in the Belmont 5th there is no value amongst the 2 5 7 so it is a pass

The vast majority of race goers, YOU included, do not seem to understand that there are TWO inherently and mutually exclusive games that we play at the track. The first is the relatie evaluation of the participants in the contest, ONCE the stage is set for that (after scratches and weather is KNOWN). The second, and infinittely harder game is to look at the odds board just the same way a commodities broker, stock market analyst or any rational gambler would: looking for the contestants that are underbet RELATIVE, to their probability of winning said contest. This latter skill takes minute to minute evaluation of thre "trading" going on on the board. Any logical wagers come in fidning the mismathces between real probability and the crowd's evaluation of those probabilities. It is that last frontier to which most never even consider.
