Friday's 5th race (3:03pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a Starter Allowance event for fillies and mares traveling one mile on the turf course (rail at 24 feet).
#8 Pure Blush (4-1) was nabbed out of her last by quality trainer Peter Miller and he might have purchased her for turf. She finished 8th of 11 in her lone turf start but that was a downhill sprint (off slow, shuffled) and she is 0-for-3 around one turn. In contrast, she has been right there in a trio of routes and dam has tossed a turf winner. The above average Keeneland sales grad dons the hood and should be within hailing distance throughout.

#7 Cavalletta (5-2) is 1-for-14 and might be best used underneath. She hit the board in all four turf outings and can move forward on the surface switch in her 2nd start off the shelf.
