Thursday's 5th race (3:06pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a $47,000 Maiden Special Weight event for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the turf course (rail at 24 feet). 

#3 Sumerian (4-1) split a 10-horse field and was only beaten a couple of lengths in his turf route bow. The $230k Keeneland sales grad could easily move forward second time out for Canani.

#10 Exultant (5-2) has the speed to succeed and might get brave with the rails at 24 feet. Aggressive pilot Pedroza figures to hustle him out of the gate from post 10. 

#7 Raya Roja (7-2) ran his best race to date under today's pilot Bejarano in a place finish vs. this kind Aug 18. The fresh stretch threat needs some pace help.

#2 Kingzapper (8-1) is a $150k purchase out of 12% first turf sire Ghostzapper. He hails from the recently hot Machowsky barn and could hit the ground running at a price. 

The Plays:

$15 to win #2

$4 Exacta Box 3-10 ($8)

$3 Exacta 3-10/2-7 ($12)

Contenders are #1, 3, 6, and 10. The 1 has not been close in two starts, but does have a good trainer...doubtful. The 6 has the pace advantage...but cannot trust a 20 time maiden. The 10 has good connections and ran a bang-up 2nd two races back...the danger. Then we have the #3 with the ubiquitous Julio Canani. This is the horse to beat if the odds are right and the logical winner. Good luck!!!
