Santa Anita's sixth race contest of seven three years running One Mile on the main track. Optional claiming 80k.
#1 APPEALING TALE (5-2)- He took three tries to break his maiden. But, he got beat b the following: Distinctiv Passion, Belvin, Mandando, Flashback, and Mentor Cane. He has been in steep company. Last out, he won by six lengths on a wet-fast track. He should handle the dirt, and Peter Miller trains, Edwin on board.
#4 PERSUASIVE PAUL (9-2)- Decent contender IF he handles the dirt.
#5 SUPER NINETY NINE (5-2)- He came a good second at Hollwood, but last out was beaten badly in allowance field, plus I don't think a mile is in his favor. Probably a play against.
#6 CODE WEST (2-1)- Took a while for him to beat his maiden, but he has never come out of the money. He should be there at the end.
PLAYS: $10 Place on #1 Appealing Tale.
$2 Exacta Box 1/4-5-6 and 4-5-6/1
