January 17, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #8
Friday 01/17 04:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (THE CLEANERS) (9-5) - The probable favorite, gelding has been competitive on both turf and "poly" when facing tougher and will drop in class and move from grass to dirt. Working well locally and blinkers go on. Lots of things to like.
2nd pick: #5 (Omar Little) (4-1) - He was off slowly when debuting at Hollywood on Dec. 12 and raced both evenly and wide once in stride. Drops, goes turf to dirt, and will move down into a claimer.
3rd pick: #3 (Ten Tequilas) (15-1) - Longshot has early speed and is racing second back from a seven month layoff. It's apprentice Garcia off and veteran Pat Valenzuela on. May do well at a big price.
4th pick: #6 (Tasha's Courage) (3-1) - He ran second here as the 2-1 favorite at this tag and trip on Jan. 2 in his first since late July. Four-year-old is brought back quickly and is making back-to-back starts for the first time.
