SANTA ANITA Race #7
Thursday 03/07 04:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (EXAMEN) (5-2) - Beautifully-bred gelding tries winners for the first time after getting his maiden win on this course going 9 furlongs on Feb. 9. Win came off a seven month layoff and was only his second lifetime start. May be a talented one.
2nd pick: #7 (Square Dancer) (7-2) - The possible favorite, he missed by a nose when racing in an upper-level starter-allowance Feb. 21. Sharp effort came off a seven week break and was his first since coming from Florida and joining the barn of Pete Miller. Obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Meringue Pie) (6-1) - English-bred colt set the pace and just faield to last racing at this level and distance on Feb. 1. Working well since and his speed makes him dangerous.
4th pick: #4 (I'm Not Gray) (3-1) - He's won two in a row sprinting on the dirt and veteran trainer Ron Ellis will move him to the grass and try him around two-turns, both for the first time.
