Superfecta Sunday at Lovely Santa Anita

Superfecta Sunday already.
Today we take in a very competitive Turf stakes race at that "Great Race Place", Santa Anita.

Santa Anita Park Race 7 {Astra Stakes~1 1/2 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}

A super competitive group of nine will vie for the win in this classic Turf distance. It comes up short on speed. It can be reasonably expected to see these gals lope along around the course until a final quickening into the stretch run. Speed numbers are fairly close making for a contentious event. Over half the field was bred outside of the USA. Three of these gals come from the lineage of the great Turf sire Galileo [IRE]. Our task is to string together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket. It could be the most exciting Turf race of the day.

#2 Gaga A [URU] (T. Baze / Drysdale) could go off at the favorite having already won at this distance over the Santa Anita course. She holds the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four stamina producing workouts. This gal is coming off an extended layoff and should fire fresh.

#6 Energia Fribby [BRZ] (Gutierrez / Drysdale) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superb workouts. She has competed well at this distance out of country, securing a 66% in the money record. This lady loves the surface and appears to enjoy the Santa Anita course.

#7 Princess Charm [IRE] (Talamo / Sadler) should make a go of it with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and three robust workouts. Going the longer distance may provide the wake up call this daughter of Rip Van Winkle [IRE] needs to improve upon her overall in the money record of 50%. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#1 Fresh Feline (Prat / Shirreffs) should contend as a daughter of Kitten's Joy. She has the second highest (tie) last out speed number and one stout workout. She could be sent in an effort to wire this field of trackers and closers. This gal holds the highest in the money record of 76% from thirteen starts.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#2 Gaga A [URU]  +  #6 Energia Fribby [BRZ]  +  #7 Princess Charm [IRE]  +  #1 Fresh Feline.
