SANTA ANITA Race #3
Friday 10/03 02:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (FANTICOLA) (3-1) - Consistent filly is racing second off a five month break and she's done well on this course in the past 4-1-1-2. She's won at this down the hill trip in the past and has a solid shot at upsetting #6 "Ponchartrain."
2nd pick: #6 (Ponchartrain) (6-5) - The probable heavy favorite, she's undefeated here at this distance (3 for 3) and is working very fast for her first since Feb. 17. Stalker is 5 for 6 overall on the turf and her three wins at this down the hill distance have all come in stakes. Obvious win candidate at a short price.
3rd pick: #5 (Biorhythm) (6-1) - Speedy daughter of "Malibu Moon" is from the same barn (Tom Proctor) as "Ponchartrain" and has gone 3-1-1-0 here in the past at this trip. Very quick from the gate and a win candidate at a square price.
4th pick: #3 (Indecise) (4-1) - No-speed type is working nicely for her first since Jan. 19 and is capable of getting a minor award if the pace is fast and/or contested.
