SANTA ANITA Race #2
Sunday 03/02 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #2 (SQUARE DANCER) (2-1) - Gelding is one of the few in here that has run well on a wet surface, and he enters this back in form after returning from a pair of layoffs in late Dec. Working nicely at San Luis Rey Downs, and 4yo gets a slight edge in a competitive field.
2nd pick: #7 (Botch) (7-2) - Stalker enters in form, and he's gone two for ten on the dirt. Fits at the tag and trip, and he had a sharp local six-furlong work 11 days ago. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Smart Promotion) (6-1) - Colt won a $52K stakes at Northlands Park in late July, and has been on the sidelines since racing evenly in a grass stakes at Turf Paradise on Oct. 26th. Working fast for his return, and can factor with his best.
4th pick: #5 (Full Consent) (8-1) - Speedy sort rushed up following a slow start and weakened to finish third here facing a bit weaker on Jan. 12th. He has ability, but appears to be a "head-strong" type and needs to be on his best behavior.
