Superfecta Sunday at Santa Anita

Happy Easter to all.

On this Superfecta Sunday we take a look at a highly competitive Turf feature at magnificent Santa Anita.

Santa Anita Park Race 8 {1 1/8 mile~TURF~4 year-old Up~fillies/mares~Allowance}

A stellar group of eleven gals will take to the grass in this Turf feature. It does come up a little light on speed which may aid the speedy one in the group.  All but one of these gals are coming off layoffs of varying lengths. In essence they will be firing fresh off of some significant work tabs. Our task is to saddle-up a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket. An exceptionally exciting race should unfold.

#4 Elektrum [IRE] (Smith / Sadler) should be the deserved favorite posting the second highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and three hearty workouts. She should track the pace closely and then spring into the stretch looking for running room.

#12 Qiaona (Desormeaux / Moger) will challenge from the outside with the fourth highest last out speed number and two sound workouts. She loves this surface posting a 70% in the money record from ten starts. Look for her to close valiantly.

#5 Lady Asamo (Blanc / West) moves up in class for this one, but should compete well in this group. She has a couple of good last out speed numbers and appears in good form. Her four excellent workouts help her significantly.  She too will be closing swiftly. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#3 Diamond Stilettos [IRE] (Van Dyke / O'Neill) will be stretching out to this distance after a brief freshening. She shares the second highest last out speed number, is working a two race progression, and has put in two sound workouts. She should position herself right off the leader seeking to dispatch all attempting to pass.
