SANTA ANITA Race #1
Friday 03/28 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (SCARLY CHARLY) (5-1) - Price play raced evenly while wide going a mile on the grass Feb. 16. It was his first in seven weeks and he's back on real dirt (4-0-1-3) and is working fast for this attempt. Barn shortens him up in distance, removes his blinkers, and Bejarano stays aboard.
2nd pick: #4 (A Red Tie Day) (6-1) - Another price play, he was away slowly here on March 1st and rallied to finish fourth in a contest common to several others. Runs second off a long layoff and should get a fast and/or contested pace to close into.
3rd pick: #2 (Bad Behavior) (2-1) - The probable favorite, he pressed a very quick pace and held gamely to finish second here at this level on March 1st. It was his first start in a year, he's worked fast since, and is an obvious threat.
4th pick: #3 (Grand Humor) (5-2) - Speedy gelding was 1 1/2 back of "Behavior" last out and has now been sharp in three straight. Four-year-old Florida bred should be involved from start-to-finish.
