Furlong Friday in the Sun

Our Furlong Friday shapes up with a competitive downhill Turf race in sunny Southern California.

Santa Anita Park Race 7 {6 1/2 furlongs~downhill TURF~4 year-old Up~Optional Claiming}
A great group of Turfers will glide down the hill in this Turf feature. There is enough speed to carry a decent pace. The speed figures are fairly close which should give rise to an excellent contest. It should be a very exciting race.

#1 Pepnic (Talamo / Spawr) has a slight edge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two robust workouts. This lad is 100% in the money on Santa Anita's unique downhill Turf course. He loves the Turf and more importantly the Santa Anita course. This veteran could show them how it is done while in a forwardly placed position.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#10 Guggenheim (Espinoza / Shirreffs) should take another step forward with the fourth highest last out speed number,  a three race progression, and two sound workouts. He has already notched two victories from two tries on the downhill course. This guy could pull off his third win in a row from a tracking position.

#3 Sofast [FR] (Prat / Mandella) could show some strong improvement in his third North American start. He was a significant Turfer in France. His two races in Southern California were not impressive, but he has had time to acclimate to this racing circuit. This lad has posted three powerful workouts in anticipation of making a downhill run.

#5 Weewinnin (Trujillo / Koriner) should contend with the third highest last out speed number and two hearty workouts. He might be considered the class of this group and should track the pace closely looking for an opening.
