Stakes Saturday on the Turf

Today we take in a graded Turf race in Southern California.

Santa Anita Race 7 {San Marcos~G2~1 1/4 mile~4 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}
A stellar group of eight will take to the green in this feature race. The lone speed, Little Jerry, could have his way with the group if left loose on the lead. The speed numbers are fairly close which leaves an opening for one of these fellas who travels close to the leader. It should be a great and exciting race.

#2 Patrioticandproud (Van Dyke / Casse) could get the job done with the second highest last out speed number, a six race progression, and three dynamic workouts. This son of Proud Citizen should track the pace closely and strike in the stretch.
$2 WIN  /  $3 SHOW.

#4 Power Ped (Prat / Drysdale) should challenge with the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number and three robust workouts. This son of Powerscourt [GB] should be able to get the distance as he tries it for the first time. He should be part of the tracking crew and look for an opening to move forward.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#1 Finnegans Wake (Espinoza / Miller) could be the favorite with the highest last out speed number scoring his second victory in a row. He is working a six race progression and has put in three hearty workouts. Another son of Powerscourt [GB], he can be expected to close well.

#8 Dynamic Sky (Nakatani / Casse) should be in the hunt sharing the fourth highest last out speed number and putting in two solid workouts. This son of Sky Mesa will be part of the tracking bunch and could explode into the stretch. Of this group, he has earned the third highest speed number at the distance.
