SANTA ANITA Race #2
Friday 05/23 03:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (ICE CREAM TRUCK) (2-1) - He's finished second in six of his last seven starts has done so in five straight at this long meet. Stalker runs first off an A.C. Avila claim, is brought back quickly (12 days), and has blinkers added. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #7 (Chattering Class) (7-2) - Gelding has sharp early speed, runs third back off a pair of layoffs, and trainer Pete Miller drops him to a new low in price. Working fine at San Luis Rey Downs and a win threat on the front end.
3rd pick: #3 (Salt of the Earth) (6-1) - Nice effort here April 26th saw him rally to check in 4th of 10, beaten just under two lengths sprinting here at this tag. It was his first back off a 4 1/2 month break and trainer Gus Headley will stretch him out on distance.
4th pick: #5 (Cache Wanted) (8-1) - Home-bred has raced evenly in both sprint starts without ever threatening. They each were for a $30K tag and his connections drop him down a bit and stretch him out around two-turns for the first time.
