March 02, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #8
Sunday 03/02 04:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (TIZ DYNAMIC) (2-1) - Speed/stalker enters in shape, has a fine record on this surface (5-3-1-0), and is working fast for this attempt. 5yo gelding by "Tiznow" breaks from the rail, and a very good small barn (Rick Baltas) has Bejarano aboard for the first time.
2nd pick: #5 (Seeking the West) (5-2) - Lightly raced and speedy, gelding comes off a pace-setting second place finish here at this level on Feb. 2nd. Solid effort was his first facing winners, and he's worked nicely since.
3rd pick: #7 (Shadow Runner) (15-1) - Longshot moves up in class after chasing the pace and holding to finish second here for a $20K tag on Feb. 9th. It was his best since coming off a two month break Dec. 8th, and gets blinkers on for this attempt.
4th pick: #8 (Planet Sunshine) (5-2) - He has a fine record on this surface (4-1-2-1), and will be racing off a Ted West claim and a subsequent two month freshening. One paced type can factor if he avoids a wide trip, but will be over-bet.
