SANTA ANITA - Sunday Jan. 10th

Matt Matuska

ūüáļūüáł Here's a Key Bet to use on today's Late¬†Pick 5.
Let's make some money!


Santa Anita Race 2

Santa Anita Race 2

#4 GIDGETTA is 9-5 and looks like the key horse in Early Pick 5. She has speed to lead, and a class edge too. This 2nd start off the layoff should be the spot to get her back in the winner's circle. She only has 4 races of experience but has always been handled like a filly with a lot of potential, winning a nice maiden sprint then being tested in Graded stakes company going long where she set a strong pace but faded behind top quality competition.  She was rested and brought back in late November in a 5F grass sprint that is not her preferred surface or distance but ran well for 4th in a 12 horse field and that race has proven to be fairly productive. All systems are "go" for the return to a dirt sprint today vs. an allowance field she can handle.

#1 MISS FIA is a win-type who is 3 for 6 lifetime against slightly lesser competition but her figures are decent. She will need to step it up against this group but the easy win at Los Al last time out gives her a shot and she should get a nice stalking trip behind our top pick.

#2 JUNGLE JUICE has 2 efforts in dirt sprints that definitely rank her with a good shot here but those were on a different circuit (Kentucky) in starter allowance company where she was able to push an early pace that was not as fast as what should be required against today's field. If able to repeat those she is a threat to win, but the questions over whether she'll handle the switch to Southern California without any works over the local track is why she is only put as a 3rd choice on our sheets.

Exacta Key Box 4 with  1,2,5  (in order of preference)

Beatable favorite and good values.  If you like our Free Pick you can get the full picks report here.
