Top Horses to Bet on Today – June 4 Analysis – Saturday, June 4, 2022

Race #9 – The G2 Pennine Ridge – 1 1/8 on the turf – 5:12 pm Analysis / #4 Napoleonic War / #6 Emmanuel / #7 – Unanimous Consent

#4 Napoleonic War is a fast closing son of War Front. Flavien Part has the call for Chad Brown and he is bred to enjoy the sod. He moves up in class, but Prat replaces Manny Franco aboard this runner as Franco is riding the favorite for Chad Brown. I’m looking for a huge effort from Prat as he wins 43% with Brown. #6 Emmanuel is a speedy colt for Todd Pletcher and Irad Ortiz in the saddle. Ortiz put on a clinic in California last weekend and returns to his home base to take this colt from wire to wire. #7 Unanimous Consent is undefeated for Chad Brown and Manny Franco and is a perfect three straight. He’ll be right in the mix, but they get an added sixteenth of a mile to run. I think he may come up a bit short and chasing the price is well worth looking to try and beat him today.


Race #8 – The G2 Royal North – 6 1/2f on the turf – 4:59 pm Analysis / #5- Boardroom / #6 Amalfi Coast / #8 – Souper Sensational

#5 Boardroom is a late runner for Josie Carroll and Rafael Hernandez in the saddle. 2nd time off a layoff and has never ran on the grass. The trainer wins 16% with turf stakes and fist time on the weeds yields a 17% win clip. 2nd off the layoff the barn wins 26%. #6 Amalfi Coast hails from the Mark Casse barn with Justin Stein in the irons. Comes off a 7 month layoff and Casse is a wizard at spotting his runners in the right place. She is 3 for 6 ITM over the course and should be a player down the lane. #8 Souper Sensational is a stalker from the Casse barn shipping in from KEE in the G2 Raven Run. She is a daughter of Curlin and will be right in the thick of the action today.

Santa Anita

Race #2 – The G3 Desert Stormer – 6f – 4:33 pm Analysis / #5 Becca Taylor / #1 Dance to the Music / #2 – Dynasty of Her Own

#5 Becca Taylor is a stalker for Steven Miyadi and J.J. Hernandez. She is 7 wins from 8 starts and 1 second place finish. She moves up in class and makes her 2nd off the layoff. She is 3 for 3 at SA. The one to beat. #1 Dance to the Music is early speed from the rail for Mark Glatt. Abel Cedillo has the call and should dictate the pace from the rail post. She has faced better and can easily upset the applecart. #2 Dynasty of Her Own is a stalker for Johnathan Wong. 2nd off the layoff going from turf to dirt today in this compact field. Those bullet works are very attractive on the way to the windows.
