Superfecta Sunday at Santa Anita

Hope you all had a very pleasant Christmas Holiday.

On this fourth day of Christmas there will be no "calling birds". Rather we will have delightful thoroughbreds racing downhill.

Santa Anita Park Race 8 {Daytona~G3~6 1/2 furlongs~downhill TURF~3 year old Up~Graded Stakes}
A fine field of ten quality Turf horses will hit the hill in this annual contest.  There is plenty of speed to produce a quick pace.  Most in here are coming off brief layoffs so will fire fresh. The speed numbers are fairly close on the downhill ride which should create a highly competitive race. Our task in this challenging downhill contest will be to forage together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#9 Betty's Bambino (M. Garcia / Eurton) has a versatile running style that fits in here nicely. He holds the second highest last out speed number, a six race progression, and three superb workouts. He is 100% in the money at the distance from four starts at such.  This lad is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#1 Sweet Swap (Nakatani / Sadler) should be the favorite and deservedly so. He comes into this race off a brief break sporting the highest last out speed number and three stellar workouts. He also holds the second highest speed number at the distance. This guy should be close to the pace ready to launch into the stretch.

#3 Clubhouse Ride (Talamo / Lewis) should contend despite coming off two clunkers for which he got a needed rest period. He holds the third highest speed number at the distance  and has put in four healthy workouts. Expect him to track and close vigorously.

#10 Play Hard to Get (A. Solis / Kruljac) could be the surprise with the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number prior to a brief freshening. That last one was a route and he has put in four excellent workouts since. He is another that will be closing swiftly into the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta box ($2.40)

#9 Betty's Bambino  +  #1 Sweet Swap  +  #3 Clubhouse Ride  +  #10 Play Hard to Get.

Last Superfecta Sunday (12/21) Results
Gulfstream Park R8.  Maiden Special Weight.  We misfired on our 10 CENT Superfecta box effort capturing only two of the wagering interests needed to produce a winning ticket.  Superfecta went 5-11-3-12.
Our Bronze Horseshoe runner, Royal Parisian [GB], faltered and finished 10th.
Bankroll plummets to $2.29.  We will supplement with a fin for todays racing action.
