Stakes Saturday at Santa Anita

A wonderful Stakes Saturday across the nation on this fine Memorial Day weekend. Today we venture to Santa Anita for a fabulous Turf contest.

Santa Anita Park Race 6 {Fran's Valentine Stakes~1 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~Fillies/Mares~CA~Stakes}

A highly competitive field of eight will go to the green in this annual affair. There is enough speed to keep an honest pace up front. Speed figures are very close head to tail. Most of these gals really like the Santa Anita turf. It should be an  exciting race.

#3 Go West Marie (Stevens / Truman) should go off as the favorite with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three superb workouts. She should get the pace she desires to track and close fluidly. This daughter of Western Fame is 100% in the money over the Santa Anita turf from seven starts.
$2 WIN  /  $3 SHOW.

#7 Mangita (Gryder / Headley) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three hearty peaking workouts. She should be forwardly placed seeking to pounce going into the stretch. This daughter of Cyclotron is 87% in the money at the distance and over the Santa Anita grass from eight starts.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#1 My Monet (Nicolas / Agarie) should be in the hunt with the second highest (tie) last out speed number at a longer route, a five race progression, and two robust peaking workouts. This daughter of Desarchy should be rolling on or near the front end. She will be going for three wins in a row.

#2 Wild in the Saddle (Bejarano / Baltas) should contend sharing the second highest last out speed number, working a three race progression, and putting in four excellent workouts. She will be firing fresh from a brief layoff. This daughter of Silic [FR] will be near the front hoping to get first jump on the others coming from off the pace.
