SANTA ANITA Race #8
Thursday 02/27 04:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (DIVINE WAY) (6-5) - The probable favorite, filly takes a huge drop in class and the O'Neill barn will try her on conventional dirt for the first time. She has the best early speed of those that have raced and Bejarano is aboard for the first time.
2nd pick: #8 (New Nature) (3-1) - Lightly raced, she chased while wide and held gamely to finish third of 10, beaten 4 1/2 lengths racing here at this tag Feb. 2. She's worked fast since and will be shortening up a 1/16th. The main danger.
3rd pick: #7 (Precious Caroline) (6-1) - One of two fillies making their debuts annd this 3-year-old has been working above average at Los Alamitos for her initial attempt. May do well at a square price.
4th pick: #2 (Very Thankful) (12-1) - She's had excuses in all three starts and last out ran evenly following a troubled break and a wide trip. Price play in the same race exotic bets.
