SANTA ANITA Race #2
Thursday 05/08 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (THIS CAT'S AWESOME) (7-5) - He's been competitive in five of his six starts and speed/stalker catches a small field where he appears to be the pace-setter. The level and outside post add to the plusses and home-bred will be tough to beat.
2nd pick: #3 (Juliet's Tizzy) (2-1) - Gelded son of "Tiznow" is working nicely for his first in two months and 3-year-old will be dropping into a claimer for the first time. He's shown enough to be a threat today and hails from a winning barn (Doug 'Neill).
3rd pick: #5 (Secret Wishes) (7-2) - Gelding by "Congrats" has been a disappointment to date and has been racing a bit "head strong" of late. Trainer Jim Cassidy drops him down, moves him from turf to dirt, and shortens him up in distance.
