February 28, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #4
Friday 02/28 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (GOSPEL MUSIC) (5-2) - The probable favorite, he has fine early speed and has finished 3rd in his first pair, one each on turf & "poly". Gelding gets blinkers on and is the choice no matter if this is on dirt or turf.
2nd pick: #7 (Stake Hunter) (6-1) - Gelding was only beaten 3 1/2 lengths last out at this trip on the grass and has been training above average on the main-track since. Home-bred fits and can factor on dirt or turf.
3rd pick: #2 (Tizapalooza) (7-2) - Gelding was only two back of "Gospel" when debuting here on the grass on Jan 31. Well-backed that day, he's working fine on the dirt here and must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #4 (Tavern Law) (6-1) - Debuting 4yo is from a good small barn (Howard Zucker) and has some serious looking works on his tab. Win threat first-time out.
