Holding Glory back on preferred turf in G2 John Henry

Sunday's 8th race (4:45pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is the Grade II John Henry Turf Championship for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a quarter on the turf course. 

#2 Holding Glory (6-1) rallied for the place in his Optional Claiming U.S. bow at Del Mar and exits a respectable 5th of 12 finish in the G1 Pacific Classic. He won at this distance on turf in Brazil earlier this year and can make an impact under Mike Smith.

#4 Indy Point (7-2) looked great in his U.S. bow (Wickerr) before flopping as the favorite in the Arlington Million. He is training well for this and can rebound under hot rider Stevens (4 wins Sat.). 

#12 Lucayan (6-1) finished well to land the place in the G2 Del Mar 'Cap at 11f last time. Gomez knows him now and he is training well for this.

#8 Vagabond Shoes (5-1) beat Lucayan at Del Mar Aug. 24 and has kicked his game up a notch for Sadler. Espinoza rides him well and he will try to get involved late.

#6 Tale of a Champion (8-1) exits back-to-back turf route Stakes wins and enters fresh for Mulhall. A tactical trip under Talamo seems likely.

#3 Kettle Corn (5-1) sports a 2nd in the G1 Hollywood Gold Cup, a win in the G2 San Diego 'Cap, and a place finish in the G1 Pacific Classic since adding blinkers. He won on turf last fall and is a logical late running threat under Bejarano.

The Plays:

$16 to win #2 

$1 Trifecta 2-4/2-4-8-12/2-3-4-6-8-12 ($24)

Correction: #3 is the play, not the 5.

Good betting race. Contenders are: #3, 6, 4, 10. Don't see the #2 at all. My choice is the class of the race and always seems to get ignored by the public...#3 Kettle Corn (5/1) Bejarano/Sadler. I will bet only at 5/1 or more and take exactas 5/all. Tri...5/ 6, 4, 10, 8/all. Good luck!!!
