SANTA ANITA Race #2
Saturday 05/03 12:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #9 (GISELE AT FONZ'S) (3-1 ) - Filly tired last out after pressing a quick pace facing tougher on April 6. Home-bred by "Swiss Yodeler" drops to a new low and gets some weight off with apprentice Van Dyke aboard.
2nd pick: #11 (Puttybadshark) (5-2) - The probable favorite, she finished second here at this tag on March 30 in her first race in just over a year. She's been given a month to recover, has worked three times since, and is a strong win threat.
3rd pick: #2 (Mayie) (7-2) - She debuted in the same March 30 contest as "Puttybadshark" and rallied to finish third only a length back of that rival. An obvious contender with any improvement at all.
4th pick: #5 (Theatrical Cast) (6-1) - She stalked the pace and came up empty when debuting here facing tougher on April 6. Filly had a fine recent work and is in a winning barn (Jeff Mullins).
5th pick: #10 (Rich in Tradition) (8-1) - This is start #27 and this professional maiden has gone 12-0-5-2 racing on conventional dirt in the past. A small slice would appear to be her ceiling.
