SANTA ANITA Race #8
Thursday 01/09 04:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (CIRCULAR LOGIC) (5-2) - Freshened up since late March, well-bred filly is working sharply on this surface for her return and trainer Mike Mitchell drops her to a new low. Daughter of "Street Boss" can take this if she runs to her AM drills.
2nd pick: #10 (Amina Perfect) (6-1) - She raced evenly after being "bumped" at the break when debuting at Hollywood Park on Dec. 15. Drops down, moves to real dirt, and trainer Marty Jones wins at a 31% rate second time out.
3rd pick: #8 (Winninginfashion) (5-1) - Speedy sort tired badly last out after being sent hard from her inside post. Trainer Mike Pender shortens her up in distance and the move off the rail should be a plus.
4th pick: #2 (Secret Memo) (4-1) - Four-year-old has finished second in two straight at Hollywood and has been competitive on this dirt surface in the past. Filly has early speed and breaks just off the rail.
