SANTA ANITA Race #4
Thursday 04/03 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (TAKE A RISK) (3-1) - Lightly-raced 4-year-old gelding just missed here at this tag and trip March 7th in his second start back from an 11 month layoff. He's worked three times since that big effort and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #7 (Maverick's Gun) (7-2) - Trainer Brian Koriner has had him face winners in two of his last three starts and will drop him to a new low, switch him from turf to dirt, and cuts him back in distance. Major player.
3rd pick: #5 (Goyan) (5-2) - Speedy gelding tired after setting a fast and pressured pace last out racing for twice this tag on March 14th. He drops to a new low and will be making back-to-back starts for the first time. In the short win mix.
4th pick: #10 (Spectacularjourney) (12-1) - He's not a strong win candidate, but longshot draws well and could pass enough to reach the tri and/or super at a big price.
