SANTA ANITA Race #9
Saturday 03/22 04:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (CORINTHIAN MELODY) (3-1) - Mare was an easy maiden here at this trip on Jan. 24, then raced evenly when facing upper-level starter-allowance foes Feb. 22 in her first facing winners. Trainer Mike Pender drops her way down for this attempt and she's the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #8 (Joint Attempt) (7-2) - Grey filly has finished second and third here at this level in her first pair off a John Sadler claim. Stalker is in shape, fits with these, and is cutting-back in distance. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Lil Cheyenne) (6-1) - She rallied to finish third here at this level on Feb. 8. It was her first in almost two months and she had to deal with a troubled break. Stretch threat.
4th pick: #4 (It's Ainge) (8-1) - Filly finished fourth of eight, beaten 2 1/2 lengths racing at this level going 5.5-furlongs on March 1st. It was her first since late July and she's worked nicely since. Stretch threat.
