Santa Anita Park

​​SA 5 (Angels Flight, 7f) #3 Astute (6-5) followed up a front running neck victory in her turf sprint bow with an outstanding romp in the Desi Arnaz Stakes on dirt. She stretched out and failed to handle two turns in her final juvenile start in the Starlet (G1) and this is her first outing since. I picked her on top in the Desi Arnaz and thought she could be a good one in this division following that race. This is a great spot for her return and the only entrant with the speed to give her a run is her stablemate #4 Missy P. (4-5).

SA 10 (G3 Senorita, 8T) #10 Javanica (4-1) got no pace help and failed to fire in her first dirt attempt in the SA Oaks (G2) April 3. She broke her maiden at this distance on turf and landed the place in a pair of stakes in her other 8T attempts. She placed in two other stakes including one against the boys in the El Camino Real Derby. She fits with these and Kent D is back on his game recently.
