SANTA ANITA Race #9 (THE CALIFORNIA CUP TURF CLASSIC)

Saturday 01/25 04:05 PM Eastern

Top pick: #1 (SUMMER HIT) (7-2) - As consistent as they come, he's gone 15-9-2-2 overall and is 6-3-1-1 racing on the grass. Has the rail, is capable from both on or just off the pace, is working fast, and Bejarano is aboard.

2nd pick: #9 (China Prince) (12-1) - Lightly-raced and still improving, his stalking style fits the field and gelding has really taken to grass racing 3-2-1-0.

3rd pick: #11 (Stoney Fleece) (8-1) - Veteran has gone 19-5-4-4 racing on the turf and strong finisher was a winner here at this distance facing "open" $50K claimers on Jan. 3. It was his first off a John Sadler re-claim and this gelding will be finishing fast.

4th pick: #5 (Huntsville) (5-1) - One of a pair from the Abram's barn, he's been over-matched in his last pair facing "open" stakes company and could grab a share wirth the move back in with state-breds.

5th pick: #3 (Lucky Primo) (6-1) - He runs second back from a three month freshening and is brought back in two weeks for this attempt. Fits with his best and he's beaten tougher several times in the past.
