Santa Anita race 7 | 7:12 pm ET Claiming (25-22.5) for 3&up going 6f

2-Gal Has to Like It  This 5yo gelding has a very impressive strike rate. He has placed in 16 of 23 career starts with 6 wins. In his last time out, he got caught up in a speed dual and lost a lot of steam in a blistering 21:61 1st qtr. He still finished 3rd. Adds jockey Fernando Perez.

8-My Slew  This 6yr old Cal bred also has a very nice record. He has placed in 11 of 16 starts while winning 4. This horse was trained by Peter Miller before being claimed last race after coming off a long layoff. He get huge class relief today and adds jockey Tyler Baze

7-Let's Get Crackin  This 5 yr old KY bred gelding has placed in 16 of his 21 career starts with 3 wins. In his last start in the Grade 2 San Carlos, he pressed the pace 4 wide into the straight but weakened 1/16 . It goes without saying that this class drop looks almost to easy for him.

Picks: 7 - 8 - 2

Good luck and have fun!
