SANTA ANITA Race #6
Saturday 10/18 03:45 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (VOW ME OVER) (7-2) - Filly has been freshened up since finishing 3rd in her first pair on the Del Mar "poly." Stalker is bred for the grass, has blinkers removed and Bejarano aboard.
2nd pick: #2 (Flate Footed Mama) (5-1) - Baffert trained filly rallied to finish second when debuting in a Del Mar sprint Sept. 3. She followed that up with a poor effort here on the dirt Sept. 26. Bred & owned by Mrs. Baffert, daughter of "Temple City" moves to the turf and stretches out in distance. Look for a competitive race at a square price.
3rd pick: #1 (Backstreet Lisa) (8-1) - She has more speed than most and is breaking from the rail in her turf and two-turn debut. She had a very tough post last out at Los Alamitos and did well while enduring a wide trip. Can factor at a big price.
4th pick: #4 (Educating) (9-2) - Filly was well backed when debuting in a mile grass race at Del Mar Aug. 31. She made up some ground late and has been working frequently for a 23% second out barn (Tom Proctor).
5th pick: #5 (Miz Graycee) (10-1) - Grey filly will be going dirt to turf and stretching out in distance. By a top grass sire "Mizzen Mast" and this $115K yearling purchase could factor at long odds.
