Back to Santa Anita for Superfecta Sunday

Superfecta Sunday rides up on us yet again. Today we look at an interesting down hill Turf contest at beautiful Santa Anita.

Santa Anita Park Race 8 {Wishing Well Stakes~6 1/2 furlongs~downhill TURF~4 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A fabulous group of nine gals will go to the grass in this feature stakes race. There is enough speed to keep an honest pace. The speed numbers look remarkably close which gives any of these gals to regale in the winners circle. Our task is to knit together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#5 Fanticola (M. Garcia / D'Amato) may have the edge with the second highest (3-way tie) last out speed number at a mile route, a two race progression, and three superb workouts. This gal enjoys the distance and the course with a 100% in the money record for both. She is our Bronze Horseshoe runner.
$2 SHOW.

#9 Birdlover [GB] (Trujillo / O'Neill) should challenge despite coming off an one year layoff. Prior to the extended layoff she was working a five race progression and shared that second highest last out speed number. This gal has put in two solid workouts in preparation. As another lover of the course and the distance, she was last seen placing second in a similar downhill Turf event.

#3 Sky Treasure (Nakatani / Casse) should contend with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two fine workouts. This gal also holds the highest speed number at the distance. She should be tracking the pace readying for the stretch run.

#1 Indecise (Prat / Mandella) should be in the mix after a lengthy one year layoff. Prior to the layoff she also posted the second highest last out speed number.  She was working a two race progression and has put in the sincerest workout tab of four works that included a couple of bullets.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#5 Fanticola  +  #9 Birdlover [GB]  +  #3 Sky Treasure  +  #1 Indecise.
