Wednesday 08/27 03:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (STAR ACT) (5-2) - Beautifully bred filly rallied to finish a fast closing fourth here at this level and distance racing on the grass July 19th. Daughter of "Street Cry" had a vey tough post that day (12th of 12) and draws much better this afternoon. Trainer Tom Proctor has worked her four times since and moves her from turf to "poly" The top pick.
2nd pick: #2 (Iconic Spirit) (2-1) - Longtime maiden has gone 13-0-5-2 overall and is 4-0-2-0 racing on synthetic surfaces. One-run type finished second here at this level and trip July 30th and is an obvious contender with Bejarano back on the re-ride.
3rd pick: #5 (Best Efforts) (6-1) - She raced evenly when debuting in a dirt sprint at this level on June 1st at Santa Anita. Working fine for this and trainer John Sadler will switch her to a synthetic surface and stretch her out in distance.
4th pick: #7 (Teemeku) (4-1) - Daughter of "Unusual Heat" rallied after a slow start to finish fourth when debuting here going 6.5-furlongs on Aug. 3. She's worked since, keeps Talamo aboard, and may grab a share with a stretch run.
