SANTA ANITA Race #5
Thursday 06/19 03:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (SUPERBOOT) (2-1) - Irish-bred has finished second in his last pair, the latest coming here at this tag and trip on May 30th. Solid effort came fresh off a Pete Miller claim and this stalker gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #6 (Aerial Dancer) (6-1) - Lightly-raced gelding has been competitive in his first pair facing tougher. Three-year-old has early speed, drops in class, and has been working sharply at Los Alamitos. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Warrior's Ridge) (5-2) - Well-bred 5-year-old pressed a quick pace and weakened slightly while checking in third, 2 1/2 lengths back of "Superboot" on May 30th. It was his first start in 2 1/2 months and this son of "War Chant" must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #3 (Super Reagan) (5-1) - From the same barn as "Superboot" (Pete Miller), gelding is doubled up in price and moves from dirt to turf in his first off a Miller claim (19%). Bred for the grass, 3-year-old by "Successful Appeal" is making back-to-back starts for the first time, and is a stretch threat.
