SANTA ANITA Race #2
Thursday 10/02 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (ZIP CAT) (9-5) - Very speedy gelding finished second last out at Del Mar at this tag in his first race in 10-months. He's won on real dirt in the past, has back class, and lightly raced 5-year-old breaks from the rail. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #4 (Valentine Boy) (3-1) - Strong finisher was a winner at Del Mar on Sept. 3 and he was a bit more than a length clear of "Zip Cat" at the finish. Another with back class and this veteran has since come back with a bullet 5-furlong breeze 12 days ago. Strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (World Famous Sam T) (7-2) - Stalker races first off a Bob Diodoro claim (a strong 30% winning angle) and gelding enters off an even fourth place finish in the same last race as both "Zip" and "Valentine." The faster the pace, the better his chances.
