SANTA ANITA Race #6
Thursday 05/01 03:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (KATHLEEN ROSE) (4-1) - Home-bred has been freshened up since early March and is working nicely for her return. She has a speed/stalking style, has a fine record on this surface (5-3-1-0) and is 3-2-1-0 at this mile trip. Filly gets a slight edge in a tough race.
2nd pick: #7 (One Time Only) (7-2) - She moves out in the gate after being sent hard and tiring from an inside draw in a small local stakes March 29th. She had gone 6-2-2-1 previously on the grass and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Rhagori) (2-1) - Listed as the morning line favorite, English-bred missed by less than a length racing here at this level going 9-furlongs April 4th. Five-time winner shortens up and meets a tougher field.
4th pick: #5 (Scarlet Strike) (4-1) - A stakes winner on the grass in the past, no-speed type races second off almost a nine month layoff and raced evenly in her return. Working well, she would benefit if the pace were fast and/or contested.
