SANTA ANITA Race #6
Sunday 06/15 03:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (TAKEIT TOTHE LIMIT) (2-1) - Colt weakened after showing speed vs. tougher when debuting here for a $50K tag on May 9. Trainer Mike Pender has worked him fast since and has him take a significant drop in class today. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #8 (Celestial Image) (6-1) - Gelding ran evenly when debuting here at this level going six-furlongs on May 26. Trainer Phil D'Amato brings him back quickly, and he draws a nice outside post at this seven panel distance.
3rd pick: #2 (Shop Forever) (7-2) - Gelding has been competitive in both appearances, and last out showed fine early speed while hanging on better than in his debut. Home-bred must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #6 (Newport Red) (12-1) - Colt ran evenly here at this tag going 5.5-furlongs on May 17. Nice effort came off a five month break, he stretches out in distance, and has blinkers on for this attempt.
