Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Looks OK for #4 Battle of Midway in Santa Anita 4.

Bypassing the top two morning-line choices in Sunland 8, going instead with #4 Surf N Ski, #6 Redneck Humor. And tiptoeing around the forecast chalk in the ninth, too, preferring #7 Bryn’s Fancy Pants, #2 Warrens Puppy Love, #9 Artic Crush.

Yesterday’s Activity:

Good work.
