SANTA ANITA Race #9
Thursday 10/09 06:15 PM Eastern
Top pick: #12 (KEEPHERINTHEDARK) (12-1) - Longshot is lightly-raced and improving. Daughter of "Kitten's Joy" comes off a career best at Del Mar on Aug. 29 and has been working steadily since. Stalker has a solid shot at a big price.
2nd pick: #10 (Here's Bella) (4-1) - $70,000 filly by "Harlan's Holiday" has fine early speed and is dropping into a claimer for the first time. Working fine and the class reduction makes her a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Theatrical Cast) (5-1) - She stumbled at the start and lost her rider when heavily favored when racing at Los Alamitos on Sept. 14. Home bred had been sharp in her previous pair and is working fast since her latest. In the mix.
4th pick: #1 (Giselle At Fonz's ) (8-1) - Speedy filly set a quick and pressured pace before weakening to finish second at this tag and trip at Los Al on Sept. 14. It was her second back from a almost a four month layoff and she should be involved all the way.
5th pick: #6 (Sunday Stroll) (9-2) - Improving filly enters off of a pair of back-to-back second-place finishes at Los Alamitos at this level. Stalker has worked fine since her latest and must be left in the mix.
