June 15, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #5
Sunday 06/15 03:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (J Louie) (2-1) - Speedy grey mare set a quick and pressured pace before weakening late to finish second here at this level going 5.5-furlongs on May 2. Has the rail, has worked fast heading into this, and she's gone three for eight when racing at five-furlongs or shorter.
2nd pick: #3 (Bodie Girl) (8-5) - The "class" of the field, she's working fast at Los Alamitos for her first start since late Jan. of 2013. The probable heavy favorite, she would be no surprise, but a short price.
3rd pick: #5 (Surely's Andante) (12-1) - Filly has run well in almost all of her dirt starts (9-3-2-2) when running elsewhere, but has a poor local record (3-0-0-0). Stalker should get a fast pace to track, but needs to do better in the final furlong.
4th pick: #6 (It's Aine) (8-1) - She has a bit of speed and will be dropping to a new low in claiming price. Capable of impacting with her best, others are quicker from the gate, so a stalking trip would offer her best chance.
