Superfecta Sunday Turf Mile

On this fine Superfecta Sunday where the snow is deep we take a look where there is warmth and most importantly, Turf.

Santa Anita Park Race 3 {1 mile~TURF~4 year-old Up~fillies/mares~Allowance Optional Claiming}
A solid group of eight gals will journey on to the grass in this early, on the card, Turf race. There is a little bit of speed to dictate pace. These gals are all relatively close with their speed numbers. A number in here are coming out of graded stakes races in an attempt to gain a victory here. Our task is to wire together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#6 Hijra (Bejarano / Hollendorfer) appears to have the edge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four robust workouts. She should be forwardly placed ready to strike in the stretch. This gal is 100% in the money at the mile distance from three starts.

#5 Elektrum [IRE] (Smith / Sadler) will challenge coming over here from France where she was successful at the races earning a 60% in the money record from ten starts. She appears to enjoy both the surface and the distance compiling above 50% in the money records at both. She has put in three stellar workouts in preparation. This fine lady is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#7 Gender Agenda [GB] (Talamo / Gaines) should contend coming out of a grade two event. She holds the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two strong workouts. This girl will also be forwardly placed seeking to make her move.

#8 Black Bird Rock (Nakatani / Casse) seeks to battle willingly with the third highest last out speed number and five career victories on her resume. She should be tracking the pace ready to close strikingly in the stretch run. This gal also sports the fourth highest speed number at the distance.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)
