February 15, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #7 (THE SWEET LIFE STAKES)
Saturday 02/15 03:50 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (SORESCA) (3-1) - Irish-bred filly did some good things last year in Europe (8-3-2-1) and defeated colts at Longchamp in early Sept. Training well, lasix is added, and she can make her North American debut a winning one.
2nd pick: #4 (Famous Alice) (5-2) - Lightly-raced, she won her debut going 6-furlongs on the Hollywood turf Nov. 23, then finished second here at this trip to today's rival "Susan's Express" in her firt facing winners Jan. 19. Working fine since and trainer Tom Proctor has her making back-to-back starts for the first time.
3rd pick: #2 (On the Backstreets) (3-1) - She paid $25.20 when winning her grass debut here at this trip on Jan. 19. By far a career best, it earned her the highest "Beyer" figure any of these (except invader "Soresca") and makse her a threat.
4th pick: #7 (Bajan) (3-1) - Double stakes winner (one each on dirt and "poly") and is working fast for her first since Dec. 7 and first on the grass. Bred for the surface and she must be left in the mix.
