SANTA ANITA Race #3
Sunday 05/25 02:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (SURFER MOON) (2-1) - Lightly raced and well-bred, gelding has finished second in two straight sprints here and will be stretching out to a mile for the first time. Stalker draws the rail, had a sharp work on the 19th, and is the top pick.
2nd pick: #5 (Gospel Music) (5-2) - Another that's stretching out in distance, he's gone 5-0-2-2 overall and has finished second in both local dirt starts. Stalker is in career best shape and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #4 (Como Mi Padre) (3-1) - Colt has been competitive in three straight sprints, with two of those coming on the local dirt. Speed/stalker drops down a bit and is stretching out for a hot small barn (Blake Heap).
4th pick: #2 (Sudden Rumor) (4-1) - Even paced type will be going turf to dirt and is dropping into a claimer for the first time. Working nicely, and gelding has been competitive in both previous appearances on this strip.
