Superfecta Sunday at Santa Anita

Staying on this Sunday at Santa Anita. We will witness a Breeder's Cup quality graded stakes Turf race.

Speaking of which, the 2014 Breeder's Cup World Championship's are now in the record books.  What a terrific day of racing. We look forward to next years Breeder's Cup at beautiful Keeneland in Kentucky, USA.

Santa Anita Park Race 9 {Goldikova~G2~1 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Graded Stakes}
A great field of nine befitting one of the greatest Turf milers, Goldikova [IRE] for which this race is named. There is plenty of speedsters and forwardly placed types to make for a hot pace. All of these gals have comparable speed figs at the mile distance and over the Turf surface. It should be a challenging race. Our task, once again, is to shoe a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#1 Filimbi (Rosario / Mott) should be the favorite and get the job done. She holds the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two stout workouts. Her last out performance is flattered by Dayatthespa's victory in yesterdays Breeder's Cup Filly and Mare Turf contest. The speedy and forwardly placed types should set it up for her as she closes them down. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#6 I'm Already Sexy (Geroux / Catalano) should challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a six race progression, and three top-notch workouts. She should be part of the forwardly placed group angling for position. This gal has the benefit of jockey Florent Geroux who appears to be in the zone considering his first victory in a Breeder's Cup race yesterday.

#8 Pontchatrain (Smith / Proctor) will also challenge with a couple of good last out speed numbers and two endurance building workouts. She shares the second highest speed number at the distance and loves the Santa Anita course. This gal has the tactical speed to go with the flow and burst into the stretch.

#4 Strathnaver [GB] (Bejarano / Motion) should be in contention with the fourth highest last out speed number at a longer route and one solid workout. She likes the distance and shares that second highest speed number at same. This gal will be closing swiftly.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#1 Filimbi  +  #6 I'm Already Sexy  +  #8 Pontchatrain  +  #4 Strathnaver [GB].
