Sunday's Best Bet: Moonhall Milly rallies for the win at Santa Anita

Sunday’s 7th race from Santa Anita Park is an optional claiming event for fillies and mares traveling a mile and a quarter on the turf course (Post Time 7:26 p.m. ET).

#1 MOONHALL MILLY (4-1) reconnects with her winning rider Umberto Rispoli and she should save all the ground behind the pace in her third start after a layoff. She is in good form and the added distance is the only question.

#2 On Mars (2-1) always takes money and frequently fires trifecta shots. She was just in front of Moonhall Milly in her last pair and the extra distance might help the late runner. Mike Smith strings along and she is also making her third start off the bench.

#6 Rocking Redhead (5-2) exits back-to-back front running turf route wins and looks like the controlling speed. Abel Cedillo will try to get out there and slow things down, and she might not look back if she gets a breather down the backside.

#5 Lucky Peridot (6-1) switches to Flavien Prat and stretches out again. She can sprint or route and likes to finish 3rd in local turf races.
