Furlong Friday at Santa Anita

On to a great downhill Turf race in California on this Friday.

Santa Anita Race 9 {Eddie D~G3~6 1/2 furlong~downhill TURF~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A solid group of eleven will go to the Santa Anita hill in this annual affair. Plenty of speedy types should keep the pace rolling down the hill. Almost all have competed well in previous tries down the Turf hill. It should be a fantastic race.

#6 Unbridled's Note (Nakatani / Asmussen) should have a slight edge with a couple of good last out speed numbers and four sturdy peaking workouts. He holds the highest speed number at this distance and will be closing mightily into the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

#8 Ambitious Brew (Smith / Jones) will challenge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three dynamic peaking workouts. This lad is perfect on the downhill Turf course from three starts. He also holds the fourth highest speed number at the distance.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Gallant Son (T. Baze / Lucarelli) should contend with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three robust workouts. He holds the third highest speed number at the distance.  This guy should be tracking and closing swiftly into a strong pace.

#3 Lil Bit O'Fun (Gryder / D'Amato) should be in the mix with the second highest last out speed number at a longer route, a four race progression, and four superb workouts. He has already posted two victories on the hill from three starts. This lad will be part of the closing crew.
