SANTA ANITA Race #9

Top pick: #7 (PUSH GIRL) (8-5) - Filly was heavily bet when debuting at this tag on Sept. 18 at Los Alamitos. She broke fast, set a quick pace, and tired badly down the stretch. Trainer Mike Pender (19% second time out) removes her blinkers, drops her down a bit, and daughter of "Value Plus" meets a very weak looking group. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #8 (Southern Owah) (3-1) - The main danger, home bred was off slowly when debuting here at this tag Oct. 9 and ran evenly while never really involved. Trainer Vann Belvoir brings her back very quickly (11 days), and believe she's a win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Turn On) (4-1) - Daughter of "Benchmark" is taking the big drop into claiming land for the first time as she runs second off a six month layoff. Poised for a competitive effort, and she's in the three horse win mix.
