SANTA ANITA Race #2
Thursday 06/26 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (YARD LINE) (2-1) - Speedy colt stalked while wide and after making a solid bid he tired to finish 3rd of 10, beaten almost seven lengths at this level and distance May 25th. Working well since, he moves from the nine-post to the rail and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #2 (Sing With Bling) (6-1) - He's been freshened up since finishing a pace-pressing second here at this level going 6.5-furlongs on May 4th. He has some speed, is working above average, and trainer Bill Spawr is stretching him out to a mile.
3rd pick: #3 (Wrightwood) (9-5) - The morning line favorite, he's broken slowly in all three starts and last out rallied to finish third here when going 6-furlongs on June 1st. It was his first since mid-November and he's worked very fast at Los Alamitos since his return effort. Stretches out and is a win candidate.
4th pick: #5 (Missing Groom) (7-2) - Gelding comes off a career best when he finished second here at this trip and level on June 12th. It was his first in blinkers and he's a threat, but this field is much tougher than he faced last out.
