SANTA ANITA Race #7
Sunday 04/27 04:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (PEACENIK) (3-1) - He was an easy wire-to-wire winner here for half this tag on March 22 in his best since coming off a 4 1/2 month layoff on Jan. 11th. Has plenty of speed, back class, and draws the rail. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #6 (Close to the Edge) (4-1) - Another with plenty of back class, he's working very fast locally for his first since Feb. 15th. Speed/stalker likes this surface (10-3-2-0), and most all of those attempts facing much tougher.
3rd pick: #3 (Too Fast to Pass) (6-1) - He ran a career best "figure" when winning here for a $25K tag on March 7 in his first back off a two month break. Gelding tired last out facing tougher, will drop back down, and reunites with Bejarano.
4th pick: #2 (Shame On Alex) (6-1) - Lightly raced gelding had some "promise" at one time, but is racing third back off an 11 month layoff and hasn't shown the same form since returning. Drops and is racing on real dirt this afternoon.
