Friday Santa Anita Park Recap – March 4 (5 of 6)
Stalkers (no wire jobs) best in the four main track races. A wire job and three pressers made up the four grass winners (rail at 15 feet).
Victor Espinoza booted home a pair.
On the ticket front I tabbed four Primary (Resplendently, Gallant Gent, Kajiwara, Saanneen) winners and one Secondary (El Vino) winner. I needed last race single Lily Amore to cap off a perfect sequence but her late show rally fell a bit short. The conso came back $67.
