SANTA ANITA Race #4
Friday 01/31 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (TOO FAST TO PASS) (2-1) - Consistent gelding races second off a Hollendorfrer claim and he drops her under the purchase price after he raced evenly after a "bobbling" start facing much tougher on Jan. 9. Spotted to win by the hall of fame trainer and Bejarano stays aboard.
2nd pick: #2 (Change of Plan) (3-1) - Speedy gelding moves up in class and stretches out a furlong after defeating weaker here going 6-furlongs on Jan. 5. His early foot should have him involved from start-to-finish.
3rd pick: #7 (Topper's Ghost) (3-1) - Lightly raced 4-year-old raced both wide and evenly here facing Cal.-bred allowance foes on Dec. 28th in his first since Nov. 9. Drops down today and strong finisher draws a nice outside post.
4th pick: #6 (Billy Win) (8-1) - Stalker has finished second in two straight, the latest coming here at this price on Jan. 5. Fits, and he should have a nice spot turning for home.
