Race 2 – SA        

#3 Noble Kent (7-2)

This gelding has been popular at the claim box and that’s probably due to four wins at Santa Anita. Trainer Jonathan Wong is 32% with beaten favorites and he moves this on up off the claim and he’s 22% first off the claim. Jockey Santiago Gonzalez jumps on.

Race 5 – SA

#5 Holiday Mousse (8-1)

Trainer Doug O’Neill tries this son of Harlan’s Holiday around two turns for the first time and O’Neill is 17% with that move. Jockey Edwin Maldonado could have ridden another in this race but sticks here.

Race 9 – SA

#5 Belle Et Bete (turf only) (5-1)

Trainer Phil D’Amato has done little wrong at the meet. He drops this filly in class but sends her around two turns, a move he is 27% with. Jockey Flavien Prat keeps the mount and he’s 38% with D’Amato.
