SANTA ANITA Race #5
Thursday 06/05 03:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #2 (WINE COUNTRY WANDA) (3-1) - Lightly raced filly finished fourth in her debut and has gone 3-0-2-1 since. One run type is improving, and both her second place finishes have come at this tag & trip. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #8 (Nona Reese) (5-2) - Filly has finished second in four of eight starts racing on dirt, and all have been local. One run type stretches out a furlong, has a nice outside post, and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Charissa) (10-1) - Price play has some early speed and is racing third back from a nine month layoff. Think she'll be competitive in this spot, and at long odds.
4th pick: #3 (Lust for Life) (7-2) - Barn drops her to a new low off almost a three month layoff. Filly fits on "figures" and trainer Rich Baltas continues a hot run at this meet. Must be left in the mix.
