SANTA ANITA Race #8 (THE WISHING WELL STAKES)

Sunday 02/09 04:05 PM Eastern

Top pick: #6 (PURIM'S DANCER) (2-1) - She's won four of nine on this surface, and all have come at this famous 6.5-furlong "down the hill" distance. Working fast, in shape, and mare has beaten better fields than this in the past.

2nd pick: #4 (Fanticola) (5-2) - The main danger, she's lightly raced, very competitive, and has a fine record on the turf (4-3-1-0). She has a flexible style and is one for one here at this trip.

3rd pick: #1 (Birdlover) (5-1) - Strong finisher was a winner here at this distance over weaker on Jan. 3rd, and that was her second back from a six month absence. Has the rail, and English-bred is a factor with her best.

4th pick: #2 (Sky High Gal) (7-2) - Lightly raced filly has talent and is working fast for her first since Nov. 2nd. Capable of impacting if she brings her "A" game.
