SANTA ANITA Race #6
Saturday 02/08 03:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (BEAUTIFUL SPIRIT) (3-1) - Speed/stalker runs second back off a 3 1/2 month layoff and mare tired after showing good early speed that day facing much tougher. Trainer Jeff Bonde drops her to a new low and it's Maldonado off and Bejarano on.
2nd pick: #2 (Secret Memo) (7-2) - Speedy sort was an easy maiden winner here sprinting on Jan. 9, then tired to run third last out at this level going a mile. She cuts back in distance, and draws a nice post to use her speed from.
3rd pick: #1 (Best By Far) (6-1) - She has a bit of speed and draws the rail after setting a pressured pace and tiring to finish 3rd here at this level Jan. 18. She's worked since, draws the rail, and should be involved from start-to-finish.
4th pick: #6 (Lil Cheyenne) (4-1) - Filly has some closing punch and has finished second in two of four starts on this surface. The pace here looks a bit "shaky," so she should be finishing fast.
