Remember first post is 3 p.m. on Friday.

FIRST RACE: 1. Sweet Mz. Poppet, 2. Take Back Spring, 3. City Ride. LONG SHOT: Wacky Miss.


SECOND RACE: 1. Take a Risk, 2. Primal Revival, 3. Ready to Jam. LONG SHOT: Stadtpark.

FIFTH RACE: 1. Carbonite (best bet), 2. Newfound Gold, 3. Dunmore East. LONG SHOT: Truelee Scrappin.

Trainer Robertino Diodoro had a big winter/spring meet and hopes it carries over to the new spring/summer meet. He claimed this 8-year-old gelding CARBONITE last time out and moves him in class. Diodoro is 31% first off the claim and puts barn rider Fernando Perez aboard. They are a 27% combo at Santa Anita.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Smooth Talker, 2. Upbeat Mood, 3. Velvet Mesquite. LONG SHOT: Hijra.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Tiznow Or Then, 2. I Don’t Care Who, 3. Magic Mark. LONG SHOT: Garen.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Misdeed, 2. Van Fraassen, 3. Kozani. LONG SHOT: Navarre.

Trainer Richard Mandella drops MISDEED, a 4-year-old gelding, into a maiden claimer for the first time and the son of Rock Hard Ten should appreciate the class relief. This will be his third start off the layoff and Mandella is 31% in maiden claiming races.
