March 15, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #3
Saturday 03/15 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (MR. CACTUS) (5-1) - Price play just missed two back here at this tag, then tired last out after rushing up following a troubled break. One-run type should get a fast and/or contested pace to rally into.
2nd pick: #8 (W Giles) (2-1) - The probable favorite, lightly-raced gelding set a quick and pressured pace last out and held gamely to finish third. He's worked fast since and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #3 (Bart the Barrister) (5-2) - One of two making their debuts and he's working fast for trainedr Mike Mitchell. Home-bred can be a big threat in this weak field if ready.
4th pick: #4 (Bright Ocean) (5-1) - Also making his debut, gelding is working steadily and had a quick gate breeze here on Feb. 24. 3yo should sneak away at a square price.
