Sunday's 8th race (4:05pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is the G3 Robert Frankel Stakes for fillies and mares traveling a mile and an eighth on the turf course.
#7 Vivo Per Lei (6-1) could have won the G2 Goldikova with a different trip. Smith got to know her last time and won't get her in trouble again. The fresh mare makes her second start for Shirreffs and should make her presence felt throughout at a hint of a price.

#9 Tiz Flirtatious (2-1) ran great to land the place in the G1 Matriarch. The consistent filly has a nose for the wire and Bejarano has options with the versatile sort.
#3 Qaraaba (3-1) smartly captured her Optional Claiming US bow as the heavy favorite under today's pilot Leparoux. She must avoid a bounce and probably won't get as much pace help this time.
#2 Halo Dolly (5-2) is a 14-for-24 pro and she beat my top in the G2 Yellow Ribbon at Del Mar in September.
$16 to win #7
