SANTA ANITA Race #4
Sunday 06/08 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (JADE WITH ENVY) (2-1) - Filly rallied to miss by a "neck" racing here at this level & distance April 10. It was a career best and ran her turf record to 3-1-2-0. Working fast at Los Alamitos, and 4yo is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #2 (Prayer Be Mine) (6-1) - Home-bred daughter of "California Chrome's" sire "Lucky Pulpit" has fine early speed and will be racing on the grass for the first time. Lightly raced, she's been competitive in all four outings, and should be involved from start-to-finish.
3rd pick: #5 (Vegas Rules) (5-1) - Veteran has more career wins (three) than any other, but mare has yet to win on the turf. 5yo has been sharp in two straight at this distance and was only a length back of "Jade With Envy" on April 10.
4th pick: #4 (Natalie Page) (5-2) - 3yo went gate-to-wire here when winning her debut on May 17, racing at this 'down the hill' trip. Nice effort, but her final time was a bit slow as compared to some others. Needs to do a bit better, but that's certainly possible.
