February 21, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #4
Friday 02/21 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (VICTORIA) (4-1) - Veteran mare finished 2nd here facing a bit tougher going 6-furlongs on Feb. 1 in her first since Nov. 8. She's worked fast since, drops slightly, and is making back-to-back starts for the first time since the spring of 2012.
2nd pick: #2 (Sugar Spice) (2-1) - Very speedy and lightly-raced 6-year-old is racing first off a Kristin Mulhall claim (19%) and a subsequent 10 day layoff. Rare Idaho-bred is working very fast locally for her return and should be involved from gate-to-wire.
3rd pick: #3 (Goldilocks Planet) (3-1) - Another going first off a claim (Vann Belvoir 26%) she comes off a career best that afternoon when Cal-bred was a sharp winner on this surface racing for a $16K tag. Must be left in the mix.
