February 21, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #8
Friday 02/21 04:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (AMONG THE STARS) (2-1) - Filly races first off a John Sadler claim (a 20% winning angle) and comes off a fourth-place finish here as the favorite racing at this $30K tag the day she was taken. Working fast and she's the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #10 (More Stormyweather) (4-1) - Grey daughter of "More Than Ready" ships from Golden Gate and has a new trainer (Bill Spawr) for this attempt. New barn drops her into a claimer and has her racing on real dirt for the first time.
3rd pick: #8 (Girly Ghost) (12-1) - Heavily backed when debuting here at this tag Jan. 24, she tired badly when unable to get by the early leaders. She's worked very fast since for a 25% second out barn (Jeff Bonde), and Bejarano gets aboard (37% for Bonde).
4th pick: #3 (Parade Bound) (3-1) - Improving filly just missed here at this tag and trip on Jan. 24 and was involved that day from start to finish. Contends today with a repeat of that effort.
5th pick: #6 (Kahala) (6-1) - She raced evenly in her latest in her first start in 7 weeks. Could grab a slice, but needs to do better for any shot at the win end.
