2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 26, 2013
SANTA ANITA Race #6 (THE LA BREA STAKES(G1))
Thursday 12/26 02:45 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (MADAME CACTUS) (9-2) - Very lightly raced filly has been freshened up since rallying to win the G2 "Raven Run" stakes at this distance on the Keeneland "poly" Oct. 19th. She's two for three on real dirt, and broke her maiden on this surface in late Sept. of 2012. Working fast for this, and there's lots of potential pace signed on to help her stretch run count.
2nd pick: #1 (Sweet Lulu) (8-5) - The probable favorite, she's been freshened up since tiring late after setting a quick & pressured pace here at this distance in the "Breeder's Cup Filly & Mare Sprint" (G1) Nov. 2nd. Working fast, and G1 winner is an obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Heir Kitty) (5-1) - One of a pair entered by trainer Pete Miller, and she moves way up in class after rallying to defeat cheaper at Hollywood Nov. 29th. Stakes placed on this surface last January, and she's working fast for this attempt.
4th pick: #6 (My Happy Face) (7-2) - Grey filly has talent, and has run well in both starts at this seven-furlong distance. Racing for only the second time since Sept. 21st, she'll need her very best for any shot at the win.
