SANTA ANITA Race #9

Sunday 06/01 05:00 PM Eastern

Top pick: #4 (TASHA'S COURAGE) (6-1) - Gelding has finished second in three of five starts since coming off a five month layoff on Jan. 2nd. He raced both wide & evenly last out following a "bumping" incident at the break and worked fast on May 14. Gets a slight edge.

2nd pick: #3 (Real Deal Appeal) (4-1) - Speedy 4yo hasn't seen action in one day under a year, but just missed last June 2 at Hollywood Park racing at this tag. Working steadily at Los Alamitos, and gelding is a win candidate if ready.

3rd pick: #11 (No Barney's) (6-1) - Lightly raced 3yo tired after flashing early speed here on May 8. It was his first since Sept. 21st, a career best, and he should be involved from start-to-finish.

4th pick: #6 (Triunfo) (5-1) - He finished a strong second here on May 17 racing at this tag & trip in his first in almost a year. Stalker is a major threat if he avoids a possible "bounce" racing off a 15 day turnaround.

5th pick: #1 (Stealth Fighter) (20-1) - Longshot ran evenly after a troubled break and a wide trip here at this level and distance on May 8. It was his first following a two month break, and he continues to work fast in the a.m. Has the rail, blinkers go on, and he should show whatever he has in this spot.
