Riding doubles for Joel Rosario, Joe Talamo, and Patrick Valenzuela.
On the ticket front I tabbed two Primary (Member Ofthe Tribe, Coo Cachoo) winners.

8th race from Santa Anita Park – Horse Racing Nation
For those interested in my Saturday full card analysis from Fair Grounds, the 12-race Feb 19th Risen Star Stakes Day card is complete and ready to purchase on my Today’s Racing Digest handicapper page.
Friday’s pick six from Santa Anita Park includes five dirt races and a flat mile turf affair. I have two possible singles in the sequence and both are conditioned by Jorge Gutierrez. Warren’s Gridlock (4th race) is on the upswing, has two solid races over the track, and should sit a decent tactical trip under PVal. Warren’s Flyer (6th race) drops out of an open Graded event and is perfectly spotted in the state bred Optional Claiming ranks. There is a 50% chance of a few showers with a high temperature of 63.
Degree of Difficulty: Moderate. On a scale of 1 to 10, the Friday pick six from Santa Anita Park rates a 5.
Possible Singles: Warren’s Gridlock (4th race), Warren’s Flyer (6th race)
