SANTA ANITA Race #9
Monday 01/20 04:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #12 (SINGLEINTHELAST) (4-1) - Lightly raced filly has excellent early speed, and a good outside post to use it from. Home-bred races third back from a three month break, has a fast recent work, drops into a claimer, and gets in "light" with 10lb apprentice Vandyke aboard.
2nd pick: #8 (Perched) (9-2) - Filly has been over-matched in many of her starts, and will be moving from "poly" to real dirt and dropping into a career soft spot. Working well, and a win candidate in today's finale.
3rd pick: #9 (Katy's Plum) (5-1) - "Katy" was away slowly in her well-bet debut last June at Hollywood, and finished strongly to finish third of nine, beaten just over a length racing for a $50K tag. Working steadily for her return, she moves to the dirt, drops in price, and has Bejarano aboard.
4th pick: #5 (Lovely Instinct) (8-1) - Daughter of "Henny Hughes" tends to race evenly, and last out checked in fifth of 12, beaten five lengths racing here at this tag. She's worked since and can grab a share with just a slight step forward.
5th pick: #13 (Warren's Susie Q) (20-1) - On the sidelines since Oct. 11th, Warren home-bred has raced evenly in her first pair, and is training nicely here for her return. She may grab a share at a very big price.
