On the Turf for Superfecta Sunday

We go to sunny Southern California for a grand Turf race.

Santa Anita Park Race 5 {1 1/8 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~Allownace Optional Claiming}
A great group of nine will take to the grass in this mid-card feature. There is enough speed in this one to maintain an honest pace. The speed numbers are fairly close which should make for a contested event. Out task is to stitch together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#8 Press Baron [GB] (Bejarano / Baltas) should have the edge with the second highest alst out speed number, a four race progression, and three tremendous workouts. This lad enjoys both the distance and the Santa Anita Turf. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Decisive Edge (Solis / Hollendorfer) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a seven race progression, and three robust peaking workouts. He is another that loves the Santa Anita Turf. This guy has secured a win at this distance from two tries.

#3 Street Maven (Trujillo / O'Neill) should improve in his second start this year. He went long in his first start and secured a decent speed number. With two solid works under his saddle he should be ready to take on these tough customers.

#7 Ahausuerus (Talamo / Kruljac) comes in from Turf Paradise off two wins. His speed numbers are decent, but he will need to show improvement facing this tougher crowd. This son of Purim is working a three race progression and has put in two hearty workouts. His strong connections make this move up in class when they know the horse is in fine form.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#8 Press Baron [GB]  +  #5 Decisive Edge  +  #3 Street Maven  +  #7 Ahausuerus.
