October 24, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #3
Friday 10/24 02:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (REDSHIRT) (3-1) - Darley home bred has finished close up in her first pair and has been freshened up for her first since Aug. 13. Daughter of "Distorted Humor" is working fast locally for what will be her first on conventional dirt. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #2 (Conquest Superstep) (4-1) - One of two entered by trainer Mark Casse and this filly ran deceptively well when debuting here in a sprint Sept. 28. Daughter of "Super Saver" has worked fast since and is stretching out in distance. Trainer has good stats in the relevant categories and she's a win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Olivia's Greatdane) (5-2) - $420K filly by "Ghostzapper" rallied to finish second here in a sprint on Sept. 28 and she was a 1/2 length better than "Conquest Superstep" that afternoon and is also stretching out in distance. Win threat at a short price.
4th pick: #4 (Miss Mandate) (12-1) - The second of the Casse fillies, daughter of "Pioneer of the Nile" has raced evenly in all four starts and is training fast locally for her first start on real dirt. May grab a share at a square price.
