September 29, 2013
SANTA ANITA Race #1
Sunday 09/29 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #2 (JUDGE CARR) (4-1) - He's been racing evenly facing tougher on synthetic surfaces, and will be dropping to a new low in price and moving back to conventional dirt. 3yo by "Mizzen Mast" is working fast locally, and Bejarano stays aboard.
2nd pick: #4 (Disarm) (3-1) - Once promising gelding has not been competitive since finishing third here in a $75K stakes on Jan. 21st. He's only made three starts since then, and all have been facing tougher on both turf and dirt. Texas-bred is 3-1-1-1 on this surface, drops to a new low, and a return to real dirt is a big plus.
3rd pick: #3 (Hazardous) (5-1) - Price play is another that has back class and will be dropping to a new low in claiming price. He has early speed, and his record on real dirt is 4-1-1-1, and that win came here a year ago.
4th pick: #6 (Justa Gusta) (12-1) - Longshot has a stalking style, has his price halved, and has a fine local record (5-1-2-1). Racing back into shape following a two month break, and a threat at a big price.
