Horse Racing Weekend begins at Santa Anita

A big weekend of horse racing gets an early start with a tremendous Turf contest in Southern California. This Stakes Saturday includes big Derby preps, The Wood Memorial at Aqueduct, the Bluegrass at Keeneland, and the Santa Anita Derby at, of course, Santa Anita.

Santa Anita Race 6 {1 1/4 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~Optional Claiming}
A fine group of eight runners will hit the green in this long Turf route. There is very little speed which may aid the forwardly placed. The speed numbers are relatively close making this a very competitive event. Let's go for the win to begin our Horse Racing Weekend.

#8 Unusual Fleet (Blanc / Baltas) might have the edge motoring on the front end. he holds the third highest speed number coming out of a sprint, is working a four race progression, and has put in two high quality, peaking workouts. He could run a comfortable pace and have plenty in the tank to cruise into victory.
$2 WIN  /  $3 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#2 Little Curlin (Bejarano / Hollendorfer) should pose a mighty challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and five incredibly good workouts. This lad could be favorite as he sits right off the pace waiting to rush into the stretch.

#3 Wanstead Garden (Espinoza / Machowsky) should contend with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superb peaking workouts. This lad has already been in the money in his only start at this distance. Expect him to close well should they get an honest pace.

#4 Apostle Paul (A. Quinonez / Kelly) could come ready for battle with a couple of decent last out speed numbers. He is coming into his third start in the form cycle with two stellar, peaking workouts. Watch him track the pace seeking to strike going into the stretch.
