May 24, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #7 (THE CHARLES WHITTINGHAM HDCP. (G2))
Saturday 05/24 04:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (SEGWAY) (7-2) - Lightly-raced and beautifully bred, gelding enters in sharp form and was a sharp winner here over weaker going 1 1/8th miles on May 10th. 5-year-old home-bred by "Giant's Causeway" has worked well since and gets a slight edge in a deep field.
2nd pick: #6 (Fire With Fire) (4-1) - Speed/stalker has gone 14-4-4-3 over the past 17 months and last out missed by a "head" here in a G3 stakes April 25th. In shape, he likes this course (11-1-5-1), and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Quick Casablanca) (7-2) - Veteran rallied to defeat "Fire" by a "head" last out in his best start since coming to North America from Chile late in 2012. In a crafty barn (Ron McAnally) and a threat from off the pace.
4th pick: #3 (Bright Thought) - He's not been the same horse since coming off a 7 1/2 month layoff in early November. However, he's working nicely, loves this course (5-3-0-1), and is a factor with his best.
