A Stakes Filled Saturday

Stakes Saturday looks to be a grand one with many Stakes races all over the country. We take a look at one of the finest races on the Thoroughbred Calendar out in the golden state, California.

Santa Anita Park Race 8 {Santa Anita Derby~G1~1 1/8 mile~3 year-old~Graded Stakes}

A fantastic field of nine will go to the gate in this top flight Derby prep race. There is plenty of speed to create a swift pace. Speed numbers are fairly close making it a competitive event. All but one will be stretching out to this distance. It should be an incredibly good race.

#2 Exaggerator (Desormeaux / Desormeaux) might have a slight edge with the third highest last out speed number and two hearty workouts. This is the only millionaire in the field having won the Delta Downs Jackpot. A son of Curlin he has a strong tactical running style that should benefit him greatly in this race.
$2 WIN  /  $3 SHOW.

#4 Mor Spirit (Stevens / Baffert) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three robust peaking workouts. This guy will track the pace carefully plowing through the speedy front pack. A son of Eskendreya, he is 100% in the money from six starts.
$2 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

#3 Danzing Candy (Smith / Sise) should contend with the highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and two explosive workouts. He should be the speed of the race seeking his fourth win in a row. A son of Twirling Candy, he holds three wins from three starts at Santa Anita.
$2 SHOW.

10 CENT Superfecta

#2 Exaggerator  /  #4 Mor Spirit  /  #3 Danzing  / ALL.
