Furlong Friday in the Santa Anita Sun

Thank goodness it is Furlong Friday. We venture downhill for a sweet Turf Stakes race.

Santa Anita Park Race 5 {Wishing Well Stakes~6 1/2 Furlongs~Downhill TURF~4 year-old Up~Fillies/Mares~Stakes}

A talented field of seven will race downhill in this annual Stakes race. There is enough speed to maintain a rapid pace. Speed numbers are fairly close for most in this one. It should be a barn burner of a race.

#4 Miss Double d'Oro (Gonzalez / Drysdale) might benefit from the swift pace with her tracking and closing running style. She holds the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three stamina producing workouts. This gal has a surperb chance of passing the field in the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Prize Exhibit [GB] (Smith / Cassidy) is coming off a brief freshening and looks to make another nice move forward. She holds the third highest last out speed number at a route and two hearty workouts. She is another that will track and go into a frothy pace.

#3 Illuminant (Prat / McCarthy) is the class of the field coming off an extended layoff. She may need a race, but she does hold the highest last out speed number, prior to the layoff. This gal was working a four race progression and has put in three tremendous workouts in anticipation for this event.

#2 Kera Kera (S. Stevens / Stevens) is coming over from Turf Paradise to test the Santa Anita Turf. She has a couple of good last out speed numbers where she had in the money performances. This lady holds an eight race progression and has put in a solid workout in preparation.
