Sunday’s 4th race from Santa Anita Park (2-18-17) is the $75,000 Baffle Stakes for 3-year-olds dashing six and one-half furlongs on the downhill turf course. 

#5 COLOSI (3-1) exits an easy downhill maiden win (1 next out winner) and might be able to step up and play ball with these. Mark Glatt shows a +ROI with his stakes starters (26% wins w/31-race sample), and he figures to stalk the pace under Talamo.

#1 Hemp Hemp Hurray (8-5) flopped in the G1 BC Juvenile Turf last time, but he ran well in his first three outings including back-to-back turf sprint romps to begin his career.

#2 Pubilius Syrus (9-5) turns back after a gutsy score in the Eddie Logan Stakes. He is reportedly using this as a prep for the one mile Pasadena Stakes at Santa Anita on March 17.

THE PLAYS:

#5 to win

Exacta 5/1-2

Exacta 1-2/5
