February 01, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #7 (THE LAS VIRGENES STAKES (G1))
Saturday 02/01 03:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (STREAMING) (2-1) - Lightly-raced and undefeated (2-for-2) she won the G1 "Hollywood Starlet" on Dec. 7 and has been working very fast locally for her first on conventional dirt. In the Baffert barn and can win this if she takes to the new footing.
2nd pick: #7 (Taste Like Candy) (5-2) - She's gone 3-1-2-0 to date and finished second to "Streaming" in the "Starlet" after setting a quick and pressured pace. One of three who have won here before and a win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Fashion Plate) (10-1) - Longshot has plenty of speed and recent maiden winner here will be trying a two-turn distance for the first time. $340K 2-year-old purchase is a threat at a big price.
4th pick: #6 (Sushi Empire) (8-1) - A stakes winner on the local turf, daughter of "Empire Maker" will be racing on real dirt for the first time. Working fine on it and a threat if she brings her grass form to the new surface.
