A Little Cali Turf for Friday

A maiden special weight Turf contest is on the docket today.

Santa Anita Race 8 {1 mile TURF~3 year old Up~CA~Maiden Special Weight}
A solid field of ten will take to the grass in this maiden feature.  It comes a little light on speed so the pace may not be brisk.  Strategic placement may hold the key to victory.  A number of these have not gone the distance, but the speed numbers align fairly closely.  It should be a challenging race.

#3 Chattering Gambler (Gryder / Bell) might have the edge with the thid highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two hearty workouts.  This lad also holds the second highest speed number at the distance.
$2 SHOW.

#2 Smart Journey (T. Baze / Glatt) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number and two fine workouts.  He will be stretching out for this one.  A pressing attack could put him in good position to score.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#6 Lindante (Talamo / Puype) should contend with the highest last out speed number in his only start and one bullet workout.  This lad appears to love the surface and will be charging hard in the stretch.

#9 Pyrotechnics (E. Flores / Warren) could be in the mix with the fourth highest last out speed number and two smart workouts.  This guy should be closing swiftly in the stretch.
