Stakes Saturday at Santa Anita

Already the second Saturday of a fast moving year. On this Stakes Saturday we look at a fine stakes race on the road to the Derby.

Santa Anita Park Race 6 {Sham~G3~1 mile~3 year-old~Graded Stakes}

A equally talented group of eight will go to the gate in this early on the road to the Derby race. Speed numbers are this/close making the race available for any of these lads to take. There is enough speed to keep an honest pace. It should be a great race at the "Great Race Place".

#9 Collected (M. Garcia / Baffert) looks to have a minimal edge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and five superb peaking workouts. This lad will be making his first dirt start after being in the money in his two career starts on the Turf. A son of City Zip, he should be forwardly placed.
$2 WIN  /  $3 SHOW.

#5 Semper Fortis (Fallon / O'Neill) should challenge with the second highest (3-way tie) last out speed number, a three race progression, and two hearty workouts. This son of Distorted Humor should close well into a solid pace.
$2 WIN  /  $2 SHOW.

#7 I'nalreadythere (Bejarano / Hollendorfer) should contend with the fourth highest (tie) last our speed number at a longer route, a four race progression, and three robust workouts. This son of Crown of Thorns should be tracking the pace closely ready to strike going into the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#3 Let's Meet in Rio (Desormeaux / Baffert) should be in the mix sharing the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and putting in three excellent workouts. This son of Flatter should close gallantly heading for home.

10 CENT Superfecta
