October 30, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #5
Thursday 10/30 03:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (PUTTYBADSHARK) (5-1) - Lightly-raced and very fast from the gate, she was an easy winner racing at Los Alamitos for a $5000 tag on Oct. 5. She earned by far a career best figure and it was the best any of these has yet attained. Filly has won here in the past and jockey Ray Guce comes in for the mount.
2nd pick: #2 (Jetbird) (9-2) - Grey filly was a winner at Los Alamitos at this tag and trip Sept. 18. She ran well here facing tougher in her latest and did not have an easy trip that afternoon. Florida bred drops back down, draws a good post, and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #11 (Rossi Reserve) (5-2) - Away since April 3rd, veteran mare is working nicely for her return and has gone 4-2-1-1 at this price tag in the past. Six-year-old has more lifetime wins (12) than any other entered and is 13-2-6-0 racing here.
4th pick: #4 (Glorious Rebecca) (5-1) - Speed/stalker won at Los Alamitos at this tag on Sept. 12, then ran well here for a $12.5K tag Oct. 12. She set a quick and pressured pace that afternoon and held her ground until the final 1/16th. Daughter of "Kafwain" must be left in the mix.
5th pick: #7 (Brandon's Princess) (15-1) - Longshot is dropping down a bit after a pair of even efforts here for a $12.5K tag. Stalker should be involved from start-to-finish at a big price.
