SANTA ANITA Race #1
Sunday 04/06 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (CINCO DE MARIO) (5-2) - Speedy sort drops in class, goes turf to dirt, and stretches out a bit in distance. Capable on the dirt, and he'll be tough to catch as he runs in a career soft spot.
2nd pick: #1 (Shackbamalama) (2-1) - He's listed as the "morning line" favorite and comes into this off a solid pace-setting second place finish here at this level March 14. Has the rail, is in career best form, and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Crusher) (9-5) - Lightly raced gelding was only a 1/2 length back of "Shack" in his latest and will race fresh off a Bob Hess, Jr. claim. Speed/stalker fits, but needs a "heady" ride from Marty Garcia with the other speeds inside of him.
