SANTA ANITA Race #6
Friday 06/06 05:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (WATCH IT BUSTER) (7-5) - Debuting gelding has some fast works showing at Los Alamitos and meets a weak field in his first public appearance. Home-bred can beat these if he brings his morning times to the afternoon.
2nd pick: #8 (Vite Tribal Reign) (8-1) - Colt by "Tribal Rule" raced evenly while finishing sixth of 12, beaten almost nine-lengths when debuting here at this tag going 5.5-furlongs May 17. He stretches out a furlong, draws a nice outside post, and trainer Pete Eurton has him set for a big effort.
3rd pick: #4 (Dark Timbers) (7-2) - Long time maiden rallied to finish second here facing a bit tougher on May 22. Nice effort, and it's apprentice Garcia off and Kent Dessormeaux on. Win candidate.
4th pick: #5 (Voluntary) (5-1) - Lightly raced gelding has some speed and just missed here at this tag on May 10. Race was run in slow time, and he'll need to improve for anything more than a small slice.
