Final Superfecta Sunday of 2012

We look at the final Superfecta Sunday of the year at magnificent Santa Anita.

Santa Anita Race 8 {Robert J. Frankel~G3~1 1/8 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A field of nine gracious ladies line up this tribute to the great Southern California trainer.  Contrary to what the odds gods have conjured up for the morning line, this one is a bugger of a handicapping challenge.  Hopefully the weather holds favorably and this one stays on the TURF.  Any one of the gals could win it.  There is enough of the forwardly placed to keep the pace sharp.  With the clear majority of the horses coming off a short layoff, it could come down to last out speed plus works.  Let's give our final effort of the year to plot a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#8 More Chocolate (Gomez / Sadler) could surprise with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two strengthening workouts.  She has the tactical speed to stay close to the pace and swoop on through in the stretch.  She is our bronze horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#2 Halo Dolly (Talamo / Hollendorfer) will challenge with the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superb workouts which include two bullets.  She can be expected to be part of the forwardly placed group.

#9 Tiz Flirtatious (Bejarano / M. Jones) should be a top contender with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression covering her three race career, and three endurance workouts.  She will come closing fast with a solid pace.

#3 Qaraaba [GB] (Leparoux / Callaghan) will enjoin the battle with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three robust workouts.  She should be prepped for a solid closing.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#8 More Chocolate  +  #2 Halo Dolly  +  #9 Tiz Flirtatious  +  #3 Qaraaba [GB].
