Superfecta Sunday in Sunny Southern Cal

Superfecta Sunday already?!  Today we take a look at a classic Turf race in warm and sunny Southern California.

Santa Anita Race 3 {1 1/4 mile~TURF~3 year-old Up~Optional Claiming}
A fine field of seven will go to the grass in this classic Turf offering. It comes up light on speed which may produce a wicked quickening going into the stretch.  The speed numbers are very close making this one a very competitive event. Our task is to cobble together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta Box ticket. Let's give it a spin.

#1 Alcott [NZ] (Fallon / Powell) comes from overseas for his first North American debut. He last raced in China with sound success. This lad is coming into this one off an extended layoff with four strong workouts. He appears to have acclimated well to sunny Southern California. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#7 Crucero (Desormeaux / Desormeaux) should challenge with the second highest speed number at the distance, a couple of good last out speed numbers and two solid workouts. This guy loves the Santa Anita Turf and should be tracking the pace well.

#5 Wanstead Gardens (Stevens / French) should go off as the favorite with the highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and five tremendous peaking workouts. This Ontario bred will be tracking the pace and close gallantly.

#4 Son of War (Blanc / McAnally) is coming into sound form with the second highest last out speed number and three superb peaking workouts. This guy also shares the highest speed number over the Santa Anita turf. He is another that will be tracking the pace.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#1 Alcott [NZ]  +  #7 Crucero  +  #5 Wanstead Gardens  +  #4 Son of War.
