California Friday

The Breeder's Cup is nearly a month away.  On this fantastic Friday, we take in a downhill Turf sprint at magnificent Santa Anita, this years Breeder's Cup host track.

Santa Anita Race 8 {Eddie D.~G3~6 1/2 furlongs~downhill TURF~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A great field of twelve will go to the hill in this annual Turf dash.  There is significant speed to carry the field forward.  The entire field is well prepped with superb workouts.  It has the makings of a terrific race.

#5 Unbridled's Note (Nakatani / Asmussen) is coming off an ordinary layoff with a decent last out speed number.  He shares the highest speed number at the distance and has put in three strong workouts.  He has a versatile running style that should serve him well.
$2 SHOW.

#8 Chips All In (Leparoux / Mullins) will challenge with a decent last out speed number at a route and two hearty workouts.  He is the other that holds the highest speed number at this distance, over this course.  This guy should be part of the leaders charging down the hill.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#3 Caracortado (Gryder / Machowsky) is coming off a one year layoff.  He has done marvelously well coming off previous layoffs.  He holds the second highest speed number, was working two race progression, and has put in four excellent workouts.  This guy is quite capable of chasing down the leaders for the win.

#4 Boat Trip (Gomez / Pender) should be in the mix with a couple of good last out speed numbers and three hearty workouts.  He too should be tracking the field and swoop down into the stretch.

#12 Snowday [FR] (Bejarano / Mandella) comes into this one from racing in his native France.  He will fire fresh in his first North American start.  With reasonable success across the pond, he was working a three race progression prior to a normal layoff and has put in four stellar workouts.  The lad like to track the leaders.
