SANTA ANITA Race #1
Thursday 06/05 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (SOAR HOME) (7-5) - Filly moves back to the dirt after a poor effort racing very wide last out on the grass. Don't think she cared for the surface, and daughter of "Fusaichi Pegasus" had been much sharper in her previous two local dirt starts. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #3 (Super Defence) (9-5) - Away for almost 15 months, filly is working nicely for her return and her trainer (Rich Baltas) is enjoying a career best meet (20-6-3-3). Win candidate if ready.
3rd pick: #2 (Alway's an Angel) (3-1) - Well-bred filly was never involved when debuting here in a sprint facing tougher March 29. Freshened up since, trainer Eric Kruljac drops her into a claimer, stretches her out in distance, and daughter of "Corinthian" must be left in the small win mix.
