Preview: Final week of the meet before the circuit returns to Santa Anita. So far a few jockeys have been struggling with the Los Al track. Brayan Pena is 1-for-18, Alonso Quinonez is 1-17, Chad Lindsay 1-16 and Vinnie Bednar is 0-12. Bednar is surprising since he rides at night, too, but the configuration is different.
Race 1: #2 Sooner Time (5-1)
Trainer Vladimir Cerin has two fillies in this race, but we’ll go with the one moving up in class and has a couple of big works coming into this sprint. Cerin is 20% with horses off a 31 to 60-day layoff.
Race 4: #6 Bohemian Bliss (3-1)
Trainer Mike Puype had a miserable Del Mar, but has spotted his horses well here winning two of three races. This filly has speed in her first try over this oval and Tyler Baze keeps the mount.
Race 8: #9 Deer Decarchy (4-1)
Jockey Iggy Puglisi is underrated and if there is a bias in the track he will find it. He put this one on the lead 2 weeks ago but couldn’t get him home so trainer Wilton Whitehouse drops the 5-year-old in class.
