October 23, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #4
Thursday 10/23 02:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (FLOWINWITHTHEBREEZ) (3-1) - She finished an even fourth following a slow break when debuting at Del Mar Aug 17. Latest saw her tire after racing "head strong" in a two-turn grass contest Sep 3rd. Both of those came against tougher and trainer Phil D[Amato drops her in class and has her working sharply. She gets the call in a weak field for the tag.
2nd pick: #2 (Comin'offthebench) (5-2) - Debuting mare by "Benchmark" is nearing her fifth birthday and is finally getting to the gate. Working very fast and trainer Bob Diodoro wins at a solid 23% clip first out. Contender.
3rd pick: #7 (Goofy Rainbow) (6-1) - She tired while racing wide when debuting against tougher on Sep 11th at Los Alamitos. Working fast since, small barn drops her down a bit and sophomores early speed must be respected.
4th pick: #1 (Scattercash) (8-1) - Another making her debut, her works are on the slow side and she's bred for both grass and longer distance. That said, she could still grab a share at a square price.
