May 22, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #6
Thursday 05/22 03:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (JULIO'S GOLD) (5-2) - She's one of two speedballs entered and has more back class than the other front-runner. Filly tired late after setting a very quick and pressured pace here on April 27th and drops back down to the price of her last win.
2nd pick: #5 (Mahalo Princess) (4-1) - The other early speed type, mare was an impressive winner here facing a bit weaker on May 8th in her second back off a 10 month break. Five-year-old has proven in the past that she can string good starts together and must be considered dangerous.
3rd pick: #8 (Woebegon) (7-2) - Mare tired when facing tougher going a mile on the grass
4th pick: #2 (Metaxa) (4-1) - Veteran likes this main track 11-2-5-1 and races off a 70 day freshening. Stalker is working well, draws a ground-saving post, and she should get a fast and/or contested pace to close into.
